Pax - I was concerned that the cages would not fit side by side in that area because of the slanted wall.  I'll see if I can get the measurements.  Moving them back and forth would be doable but would sure get old after awhile.  I'd like to find a permanent solution, if I could.

TomHanlon -  I didn't feel right about calling Earl and taking up his time when I wouldn't be buying new, but would be looking to purchasing used.  I have tried to figure out the dog collar, D ring thing but I just can't seem to picture it.

Bruce - How much room is there between the the driver's seat and the slide when it's in?  How would you anchor the stands so that they are stable while traveling?  You couldn't like bungee them to the seats unless you wanted holes in the seat from the birds chewing on them. Smile

Parrots are very loving pets.  They have the intelligence and, some, the vocabulary capacity of a 5 yr old child with the emotional maturity of a 2 yr old.......So it's like living with perpetual 2 yr olds.  Well, here I go, out in the weeds, again!

Thanks, everyone.  Please keep the ideas coming.

Thanks for the replies.  Good ideas....keep 'em coming!

Sue - Unfortunately, there are 2 of us most of the time. How comfortable is the couch?

jfcaramagno - Most of the time, you need to keep your parrots at chest height to prevent dominance behavioral problems.  Without getting to far out in the weeds,  the higher they are the more bossy they get.  Think of the rooster on the top perch in the hen becomes his job to "rule the roost".  As far as the cats go, I've never allowed any interaction between the sitting and watching the birds, no toys with feathers in them, etc.  Besides, each cat pretends like they are an only child, anyway!  Grin

Bruce and Sharon - It's not a good idea to put them on the floor for any length of time for almost the opposite reasons that I gave for having them too high.  Would be stressful for them and could cause other behavioral problems, like pulling out their feathers or other things.  It doesn't interfere with movement of the drivers seat, having a cart behind it?  I suppose you could do the same with the other cage, of course they would have to be anchored somehow.  I, also, was trying to keep the euro chair.

I've wondered how difficult it would be to remove the shirt closets and install them there?  Would have to figure out a way to contain the mess.  They're not too bad......but, I also don't want to sleep with crumbs in the bed!   Hey, If you had to eat with no hands or no lips, you'd be messy, too!  LOL

I have 2 parrots that travel with me.  Those of you with the 2552, can you tell me where you would place 2 cages in your rig.

Cage dimensions are:   18 x 18 x 31 and 14 x 16 x 21

I'm looking at 2552s and trying to see if I can make this work, along with the 3 cats pulling hair out

Hi All,

I tried contacting Aimee with this question but never got a response.

I would be interested in being able to view a couple of PCs....specifically the 2552 and/or the 3100.  I thought I had read on the forum that you had started a list of owners that were willing to show their rigs, but I can't seem to locate any info on it now.  Is that still a viable option?

I'm in Pensacola, FL, and will be for the next couple of week or so, and would be interested in seeing if anyone in this area would willing to help me out.  I know that there is at least one person on the forum that is here in PCola with a 2552 but I didn't think it would be appropriate to contact them personally.

I started out over a year ago looking at PCs and decided that I just couldn't make it work for me, so I moved on......all the way up to class A's.  Almost pulled the trigger on 2 of them, but just couldn't do it.  So now I'm back down here looking at PCs, again.

Thanks for any help.

Hi everybody,

I'm thinking about getting a new rig and am researching what might be the best fit for me. I'm wanting to follow the recommendations in ron dittmer's famous (or infamous) Grin tutorial on fiberglass cap, etc.  I'm trying to get something that would be easier to maintain, drive and use as I am in my early 60's now and suspect that these things will only get harder as time goes on plus I travel with a friend, 2 parrots and 4 cats  pulling hair out which makes floorplan choice important......litterbox and cage placement.

Sooo, I'm going to have a lot of questions and will need some measurements that I hope some of you will be willing to answer, and I think you will, because you seem like such a nice, friendly bunch here.  I've followed gradygal through their 3 Rvs and Barry-Sue through their changes and ron.dittmer through his suspension saga.  I've read every (and I mean every) single thread in this forum.  Does that mean that I can get a gold star by my name? LOL
