We were there this past October.  Had reservations for Cade's Cove campground.  We did tow since we weren't comfortable with driving even our 2350 on those roads.  While I think you could drive Cade's Cove itself, it can be VERY crowded and parking can be challenging.  There were a couple of places where people had pulled off and parked on both sides of the road that felt a bit challenging to get through in our Ford Escape. The same is true of downtown Gatlinburg, or was before the enormous wildfire that killed 14 people and burned over 1400 structures in November.  I am sure they are desperate for the tourists to come back.  Thousands of acres of forest burned but Cade's Cove was safe. By the way, do not travel the "tail of the dragon" hwy us129 between Cade's Cove and Fontana dam.  One of the most dangerous roads in the US with 318 sharp curves in 11 miles.  It is beautiful almost anywhere you chose to go.

Gail, Sorry to hear you have the problem.  Ours progressed like a virus, from the driver seat, 3 months later to the passenger seat, and now the sofa.  We had both of the front seats recovered and the upholsterer told us that our original fabric was a very cheap, low grade.  We are trying to figure out now what to do about the sofa.  So far we are out $600.  The good news is that we were able to match the existing vinyl.  We can tell a big difference in the feel of the covering.  Keep us updated.

Saw a beautiful PC, maybe a 29 something with full body paint across from us at Huntington Beach state park a couple of weeks ago, just a couple of days before the evacuation because of hurricane Matthew. I too got all excited, but never went over cause we are one of those couples who aren't very outgoing. Lol.

My sofa in the 2350 began to show the dreaded wrinkles, then a tiny little "slit" almost like a cut. (It was not). Few little places when we took off to the beach for three days (evacuated because of Matthew). Drove up to Cade's Cove in the Smokies for 4 days and by this morning there were multiple pieces of vinyl, almost like wrapping plastic, way thinner than any shower curtain vinyl hanging off the seat.  Will try to get some photos of this.  No idea how this  can be recovered as we did with both front seats. Haven't bothered to try Paul's seating again.  Don't want anything they have to offer!

Love your idea. We bought magnets for the fridge, then one of those US magnetic maps and finally we started Christmas tree ornaments from various state and national parks we visit.  Just something to help us remember our travels. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Ron, we visited Acadia NP driving from SC, crossed into Canada for 3 days touring Hopewell Rock, Bay of Fundy and St. Andrews, NB, Ca. And back down to Acadia.  We were in NB starting 10/8/2014 and Acadia by 10/11/14, back to SC by 10/24/2014. Some places were past their peak, but mostly just beautiful.  Visit Hopewell Rock if you get a chance. We found a nice campground not far away.  I posted a pic of our PC at that place as well as one in Bar Harbour made on 10/11.  Gives you a hint of how the fall color might be. Enjoy and be safe.

Margie, the table is made by Catskill craftsman.  It is on Amazon and you can order it directly from the manufacturer as well.  Just type in Catskill craftsman fold-away butcher block table.  Be aware it comes with an oiled finish which was a bit rough and not water/stain resistant so I sanded it & coated it with polyurethane after a few months of use.  We really like it.

These look great.  My husband is always forgetting the keys and just leaves the doors open at home so he doesn't have to keep unlocking them. Thanks for sharing.

Both.  About 3 weeks to a month each year we will do a long trip, usually out west and tour.  Then about 3 times a year we will stay at the beach, mountains or lake for a week at a time, or maybe a long weekend.

We have a 2010 2350 that we purchased used, in Florida, 2 years ago. The seat on the drivers side was peeling slightly on the bottom door side when we purchased our rig. We assumed it had been damaged by sitting in direct Florida sun.  After one trip out west, the stuff was peeling all over the seat bottom and leaving a mess.  We had that seat re-covered.  We keep our unit under a covered shed in a shady area.  No direct sunlight.  The passenger seat and the sofa began peeling.  It starts in a small area, but quickly grows.  We re-covered the passenger seat, but can't decide what to do about the sofa.  I don't believe this is the result of a bad batch, but instead, just a cheap product.  5 years for seats with reasonable care should not result in this type problem.  Would love to hear suggestions about replacing that sofa.  It is a hide-a-bed but we never use it for sleeping.  My husband is a do-it-yourselfer.  Afraid to attempt removal and replacement on this.  We want comfort for lounging and are afraid of ordering a sofa untried.

My heart hurts for you.  Our Peanut was my lap rider on our cross country trips.  She has been gone for several years but we still do, and always will miss our girl.

The idea of carrying that glue in the first aid kit is a good one.  My father was a cabinet maker, a  strong quiet man who grew up on a farm.  He worked in his cabinet shop alone most days. One day back in the 60's he cut the tip of his thumb off on a table saw. Without missing a beat, long before this was done in the medical field, he grabbed a tube of super glue and glued the tip of his thumb back on.  He went back to work and never went to the doctor.  His thumb healed and I still remember that his thumbnail always looked weird.  While I don't recommend skipping the doctor visit, the glue is a good plan.

We own a 2010 2350 with the sofa in the slide.  We can't extend the sofa bed with the slide in, just not enough room.
