    Very nice!!!! Great idea!!!  We agree about the table - it gets us eating outside alot more than when we had a permanent table.

Have been getting alot of questions from folks here in the campground as to where I purchased my door mat that fits perfectly on the step in the motorhome.  I purchased the mat that is pictured here  at Walmart.  It cuts perfectly to fit on the step surface inside the motorhome both before and after the screen door.  It is non slip and captures the dirt off shoes prior to walking around in the PC.  Walmart had it in several colors.  I've used it in the 2008 PC as well and it still looks like new.

Another suggestion - Don't limit yourself with the existing floor plans.  Phoenix Cruiser is very willing to work with the customer to give them what they want.  Check out what  George and Judi designed for themselves,434.0.html

This is the only way I would personally have a unit without a slide.  We sat in their unit and there was plenty of room for four of us.  We have also sat in the units without a slide and just a dinette or just a couch and we would never go that route.  But everyone is different, everyones needs are different and you need to consider what is going to work best for you.

Our 2551 is a 2012 model and was delivered in October 2011. The bathroom vent is located over the toilet and the black vent is located close to the rear end cap and about 8-10 inches away from the the bath vent toward curb side of the coach.

Hope this helps

Here is a link to an old posting I made concerning our sun screen.  They work great, easy to install, provide privacy during the day, keep the heat and sun out and look professional.,159.msg563.html#msg563

This would be a partial solution (cab area) you may want to do this with the rest of the windows, it up to you.

IF you have any questions send me an e-mail.

Appreciate all your concerns about a possible fire hazard--the paper towel holder is actually set against the back wall and not over the stove top.  I placed a command hook on the small space behind the microwave (Judi-I did this after you left) that actually keeps the towel holder snug to the back wall.  It actually lines up with the valance over the sink.  That is how far back it is set.  I'll post pictures when I get a chance.  

I also can easily remove the paper towel when cooking if I so desire, but the height and distance from the stove top is virtually the same as if I had mounted it over the sink top or left it free standing on the counter.

I used this same design on the 2350 and never had a problem.  The design of the microwave in the newer units is much higher than in the older units.  I think each person must assess what is right for their own unit depending upon model year and design.

Here is the link to the magnetic mount paper towel holder that I use:

It mounts to the underside of the microwave.  It works great and can be positioned anywhere underneath the microwave.

As far as the TV - consider mounting the TV yourself.  We are currently camping in our 2551 and using our self mounted TV for the first time.  It is on a swivel mount as pictured in the following post:,713.0.html

It is absolutely wonderful.  It is a Visio TV and since the speakers are in the front of the TV they are plenty loud even with the Air, Heat strip, or Furnance running.  The TV swivels out and around and you can view it from any angle.  We have the couch and not the dinette.  There is no neck strain at all.  We used to have a 2350 with a flat mounted TV and made sure that we mounted this one on a swivel because we were not happy with the flat mount.

As far as the table - We use the table provided by Phoenix with the spider legs.  It too is a great design.  It is very easy to set up and store.

We are now officially declaring that we have a rally happening in Florida.  Judi & George, Syd & Margo, and Barry & Sue are camping at W P Franklin in Florida.  It's great to meet folks that are on this forum.  Judi has her camera out so hopefully she'll post pictures.  Cheers

Did you ever think of getting a swivel mount and mounting it sideways, i.e. instead of it swiveling it would lower and raise.  Look at something like this

Go to one of the discount stores and take one of their mounts and play with positioning it and see if it will work.  When mounts first came out they were very expensive so we found an under the cabinet mount on clearance and mounted it sideways and it is still being used as a swivel mount today.  Works great as a swivel even though it was meant as an under the cabinet mount.

I too hung them in the shower.  I used one (5 pounder) for a shower caddy.  The caddy also has suction cups so I get double duty.  I hung two other smaller hooks to hang wet coats or clothes on if we get caught in the rain.  I think they are great.

Put 1200+ miles on the new motorhome and had a chance to test the Visio TV on the swivel mount.  There was no flexing or any movement of the TV no matter what the road conditions were.  The small shelf that the TV sits on worked perfectly in keeping the TV stable for travel and tight against the wall so there was no flexing.  We had forgotten about the TV for about 500 miles when the DW said WOW the TV doesn't make a sound.  We are very pleased with our mount.

Another benefit is that the TV can be swiveled so that it can be seen from either bed in the 2551.  Bonus--we don't have to install a small TV in the bedroom area.

Finally got to use the new motorhome.  It's WONDERFUL.  I hung up pictures and a weather station using the 3M Picture and Frame Hangers

They worked great the whole trip down and I can now say they are very road worthy.  Bumpy roads and all and nothing moved.  Cheer
