Bob,

   Nice idea. 

   We found a lucite orgnazer in a smoked color at bed bath and beyond that is just a little smaller than the shelf.  It has non-skip pads on the bottom.  I leave it there during all of our travels and it stays in place.  Even though that shelf is narrow it really does come in handy.

If you click on the pictures above you can actually see the rail and how these are hung.  These curtain tracks can be bought at many of the RV shops.  I would actually call Phoenix and see if the rail and curtains were part of the 2005 model.  They may be able to guide you as to where to place them.  The RV hardware that holds the curtains are also available in many RV shops.  The ones that PC uses look like this.

I would love to see a more "relaxed" fabric rather than the stiff accordion style that PC currently uses.

When we had our 2008 2350 we could never use the swivel front passenger seat at night when the curtains were drawn since they were too short and too stiff to accommodate the seat being swiveled.  When we ordered our 2012 2551 we requested an extra curtain panel to allow us enough curtain to accommodate both the driver and passenger seat being swiveled.  We only needed about a third of that curtain so I cut it and sewed it into the existing curtain to give us more fabric to go around the seat.  It has worked great and it allows us to use both seats at night with the curtain closed.  Since the curtain is larger on the drivers side I had to move the straps from the middle to the bottom screw to accommodate the new thickness.  It actually worked out better for us and now the curtain doesn't flare out on the bottom when in the stored position.  Login to see pics.

Another great Florida State Park is Koreshan Historic Site in Estero.  It is right off of 41 with alot to do in the area.  There is the Koreshan settlement that you can tour, it is right on the river with canioe rentals and it is in the midst of city life but very secluded and quiet.  The Coconut Point shopping area is only a couple of miles away and that is like a city within a city.  Great night life to just stroll and window shop.  They have great sites, very private but close enough to meet many wonderful people.  And the beaches are only a few miles away as well. Of course it gets booked in the winter.  We will be spending the last two days of February there before we head to the beach for three weeks.

Did I mention we'll be leaving in 41 days!!!!

We have been to Silver River State Park a couple of times.  We always got a pull thru site.  I don't think thy have a bad site there.

Leaving in 41 days but who is counting!!!!

When you rent an RV drive or fly to your destination and then rent your RV.  Most RV rentals have a per mile charge.

We would also recommend Florida and in particular the Fort Myers Beach area.  We have been going to this park for over 10 years, just love it.  Very relaxed, casual and only a few hundred feet from the gulf but there is a lot of sand.

Here is a link to the manual for the Winegard Antenna:

http://www.winegard.com/kbase/upload/2452013.pdf

A couple of other things to consider.

1.  Have the antenna amplifier turned on before you scan for stations on your TV.

2.  Insure your TV is set up to receive an over the air signal and not a cable signal.

3.  If the red light does not come on you might have a blown 12V fuse.  

Good Luck

The limit is with the hitch not the 2551.  The PC would be able to pull a 6,000 pound toad with a good health safety margin.

Curb weight is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables (i.e., motor oil and coolant), a full tank of fuel, while not loaded with either passengers or cargo.

Starting at 3,970 you need to add the weight of any options that were installed at the factory (i.e. skid plates and 4WD) or anything added by a previous owner, plus the weight of the towbar, plus the weight of any cargo you add to the GC.  Easiest way to determine the weight of the CG is to go to a scale and get it weighed.  This can usually be done for about $10.

I looked at the hitch on our 2012 2551 and the hitch is bolted to the frame.  It looks simple enough to remove and have a higher rated hitch installed.

You might be able to change out the existing 5K hitch for a 10K hitch.
