Have to say I'm impressed with the extent PC will go to customize.  Lazy Daze won't even add a convection microwave and cook top in lieu of the oven/range. 
My delima is I need a longer MH that drives like a shorter one, also am concerned with the chassis mods to lengthen the wheelbase beyond the original Ford 176".
See that Coachhouse builds a 2551 size model on the 176" chassis so expect PC could do similarly.  Of course this means a longer rear hangover with its issues of dragging and swing out, but should turn much shorter.
I'd be especially interested in owners experiences trading up from shorter PCs to longer ones, any driving adjustments required?

Could add a windshield fan to blow on sleeping area from a 12v source such as reading lamp, etc.

Price can not be the determining factor.  If you don't enjoy driving it you won't be happy if it were free.  Some folks pay more for a class B than for a PC and feel great about it, but wife has drawn the line on that.
I've never enjoyed driving the 40' DP or 37' and 31' class A's for many reasons but am thinking PC since I drove a smaller Penske moving truck on Chevy van chassis and hoping the PC would be as good.
I would be concerned about an extra long wheelbase on a van chassis given their poor wheel cut shortening turning radius especially if towing a car.
Finally; test drive, test drive, test drive.

Bicycling past Palm RV near Fort Myers saw a PC, maybe a 2910D in for service.  Somebody wintering here or passing thru?

Feb 2009 drove north thru Big Sur and recall numerous turnouts on coast side suitable for and signage indicating OK for boondocking.  Beautiful drive even pulling toad behind 37 footer.

I use an air compressor to winterize and think that may help you find the leak.  Need an air to male hose fitting to city water inlet and with interior plumbing fixtures off listen for any air/water sputtering but regulate pressure say 25-40 lbs. to not damage pipes.

Not your issue but we flooded one leaving sink stopper in vanity and forgetting water was left on.  I threw away that stopper.

My experience with 6v golf cart batteries is its difficult to prevent leakage of battery fluid from the vented caps and the subsequent corrosion of the tray, glides, and any attaching metal.  Also its critical to have easy access to view the fluid levels and maintain regularly and properly.

I will try AGM batteries next if affordable for their promise of cleanliness, ease of ownership, and charge retention.

Hi AMW,  please comment how comfortable sofa/bed is for sitting and especially for sleeping, also its length and width.  Did you upgrade the foam?  Dual sofas in a short rv could be just what we need.  Thanks.

Recommend Army Corp of Engineer campground on the south shore of Lake Wilson Kansas.  Just 7 miles off I70 and great sites with views of lake.

The 3rd - 4th week of SEP at Rocky Mtn NP could just be the highlight of your trip.  Just be back to I70 east of Denver early OCT.  Great camping in Denver at Cherry Creek SP.

Denny, saw you added skid rollers, before the airbags?  Where, what situations were you dragging?

$82 is steep, but you'd be surprised how many people stay for weeks and weeks.  Couple years ago in early Dec. met some staying all winter, albeit they were in a Newell.  Many arrive after Thanksgiving and put up a yard full of decorations till after Christmas.

eTrailer has big selection of skid rollers, should probably be standard on MHs with long overhangs.

Traded yet, please share what your new rv is.  Curious why thinking of a 34 ft gas and not diesel as there are several.  I've procrastinated buying a PC gas.  My 31 ft gas A turned very tight with its short WB and 50 deg wheel cut but was still a nightmare at the gas pumps pulling a car, figure a 28 ft or longer PC could be even worse.  Is it just the gassers lower costs or other issues with diesel?  Thanks.
