Hi jdw

We have the 2008 2350 and the first thing we did was have the alignment done.  The next thing was to have the Heavy Duty Bilstein shocks on the front only.  Finally, a year later we installed the blue ox tiger trac to eliminate the body sway from side to side.  What a huge improvement on the 2350.  We have the 2008 with slide and were in gust up to 50 mph and there were no issues.  The RV now drives like a typical F-150 with a cap.  This trac bar is different than the sway bar.  We have kept the original front and rear sway bars. We are very pleased with the ride and driveability.

Judi and George,

Thanks.  Did you find alot more storage space going from the 2350 to the 2551?

Also, how does the outside storage on the 2551 meet your needs?

We really like our 2350 but find spending 6 months out of the year a little tight.  It was tough having both winter and summer clothes in the 2350.

We love to camp at W.P. Franklin.  Didn't get there this year but spent two weeks at the COE in Stuart (St. Lucie campground).

How do folks with the 2551/2552 like the twin beds.  Are they easy to make?  Do you find them to be enough room to sleep?  Do they take standard sheets?

In this model how is the storage space? 

I saw a 2552 with a pantry.  How is the space with the pantry? 

How do you like the couch?  Is it comfortable?  How is the air bed?

Thanks

Was wondering what the gas mileage is on a 2551 or 2552 (E450) non-diesel. 

Thanks

We added a cabinet in the recessed wall next to the shower.  My DW uses it for her hair dryer, curling iron and larger things needed in the bathroom.  It does not interfere while dressing in the bathroom.  We made it out of the same material as the cabinets and we put a nickel drawer handle so the top can be removed to gain access.  It works great and holds alot of items.  I will post a picture in April when we return from Florida.

Bill,

We have no problems with the drivers seat hitting the extra cabinet.  We have more than enough room and I am 6' so the seat is far back.

Billy,

   We made the cabinet that sits behind the drivers seat.  Purchased material from phoenix cruiser.  The side cabinet next to the door (instead of the 2nd passenger seat) was made and installed by phoenix cruiser.

We have the 2350 with slide and couch.  We are into our 3rd month in FLorida and have found no problems with space.  When we entertain 4 adults to eat or play cards we bring in our folding travel chairs and they work great.  Yes, 4 adults have eaten in our coach.  It makes for some fun.

We personally like the rig without the extra passenge chair and opted for the extra cabinets.  We would chose this option again because of the space it provides. 

As far as extra seating in the 2551 or 2552 you could always setup the table between the two twin beds and use them as pseudo couches.  We did not have the table mounted in our 2350.  We added folding legs to the cherry table top and it works wonderful.

Tom,
  We had our sink cover cut in half by the factory.  We did not have a thin enough blade to do it ourselves.  It works great in any direction.  My DW uses it with the cutouts facing the front and back and generally takes the back piece off and uses the front piece as surface area.  She still has access to the sink below with running water.  It is strong in any direction.  They store nice behind the stove as well and they are much easier to handle when in two pieces.

We use a portable SAT dish for direct tv when we do not have good reception or cable at the campground.  We have direct tv at home so we just take along one of the receivers.  If we are gone for an extended length and the campground has cable we just call up direct tv and suspend our service.

We'll be at the Red Coconut (site 16) on the beach from 3/1 to 3/21.  We'll let you know when we get there.  Would be great meeting you.

We are getting ready to leave for Florida the day after Christmas. Wink  Cannot wait.  We were wondering if anyone on this forum will be down there.  We'll be in Hobe Sound until Feb 14th and then we'll move to Naples for two weeks and then Fort Myers Beach for three weeks.  Hope to see you all down there!

Bill and Carol,

Nice job on your cabinet.  We have a 2008 2350 and saw that the 09s had that extra cabinet.  We went to the factory and they installed that extra cabinet for us.  Boy, one more cabinet really makes a difference.

I think you should beable to swivel the drivers seat just up to the steering wheel as most other MH do . 

Donald,
I was wondering why Stuart said one way or the other as well since I have seen many MH with them both swiveled.

Donald,

We did the same but find that we are always short one seat when we have visitors.  We did not order the extra passenger seat because we had extra cabinets installed instead.  We are still very happy with that decision because the small table and extra cabinets are wonderful.  Would like to just swivel the drivers seat to angle into the coach so a person could sit there occasionally and chat.
