I was referring to the two listed in the factory inventory by Earl, not those for sale by owner.  BTH, thanks for your reply. ThankYou

Aimee, Is that one on the For Sale Page still available?

Given such high demand why is there two for sale on the PC inventory list?  It makes me wonder!

In the summer of 2008 we were in Ohio visiting friends before heading to Las Vegas.  Upon returning from a leisure lunch, they dropped us off at the camp ground.  We arrived to find our 40ft class A engulfed in a cloud of smoke.  The transfer switch shorted out causing an electrical fire in the basement area of the coach.  The fire department arrived to finish extinguishing the fire as a melted water line from the coach was already spraying water in that area.  The coach was towed to Elkhart, IN for repairs that took six months to complete, including an arson investigation as the coach was considered a crime scene & I was the person of interest.
The insurance company was under the opinion I tried to torch my motor home.  The insurance investigator determined the cause of the fire to be a FAULTY TRANSFER SWITCH.  The insurance company paid the $30,000 in repairs and the coach was like new upon completion.  From that day forward I always kept an eye on the transfer switch  making sure it wasn't overheating.

Welcome Joe!

The 2552 is the hottest selling PC, most popular in the PC community, and quite eye catching to owners of other brand motor homes, especially older couples.  The 2552 is one of the lighter rigs built on the E450 which makes it very well suited for towing the 5000 pound limit defined by the hitch.  As far as using the rig as your get-around-town vehicle, I can say that our shorter model 2350 (23'-8" long) seems to be pushing the limit for us.  We could surely get by as we have done so on one trip.  I suppose a lot depends on where and for how long you'll be wishing you brought your car from home.  For us, some trips are real nice to get around in our Jeep Liberty because without it, we'd miss out on so much.  But our vacation around Lake Michigan, I think it would have been better to leave the Liberty home.  Each trip's agenda dictates when to take it and when to leave it home.  For us it's not something we absolutely must bring on every vacation.  But yes absolutely on "some" vacations.

Thanks Ron, that's the kind of feedback I'm looking for.  Anybody else wanna offer their 2 cents!

Welcome to Phoenix USA RV's Discussion Board. We think you'll find this is a nice place to hang out. Why don't you start off with a little introduction and tell us a bit about yourself?

Hello Everyone, I'm Joe Quinn from Southwest Fl.  Joined the forum as I'm considering the future purchase of a PC model #2552.  I'm not a newbe to the RV life style as it seems I've been in & out of it for the past 5 decades.  My last MH was a 40ft 2006 Tuscany diesel class A that I sold in 2010 after extensive use.  I went on to try a towable for a couple years & found that to be to far a step backwards & sold it, now I'm looking for that happy medium in between both & the PC has my attention.

One of the things on my mind is the necessity to tow a vehicle.  We do a lot of moving around and I realize the advantages of a toad but is it really necessary?  On extended stays I would rent a car but for cross country trips as we have kids in Las-Vegas & California on the west Coast & Buffalo, NY on the east coast I would prefer not.  Being approx. 27 ft in length & fairly narrow is this coach park able at curbside & things like that.  Any insight here or other tips regarding the PC would be appreciated.  Thanks!
