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.

We downsized from a 30 foot class A because we hated the hassle of towing but neither were we happy moving about and sight seeing in our 30 footer without towing.  Just takes too much space to pull over, especially in crowded areas.  Many times we wanted to pull over to see a view but just couldn't park. Many nfs, NP or state parks limit size to 27 feet or less. We briefly owned a 27 footer b+ that could not comfortably park in some small downtown areas, i.e., st augustine Florida, Jackson hole, Yellowstone and the list goes on.  We are VERY happy with our 2350.  We can pull off on the roadside very easily.  We did rent a car for last years trip to Acadia.  The roads and traffic in the park we not conducive for driving in even the 24 footer.  There are sacrifices on every motor home choice.  You give up something to get something.  Oh yes, we rarely worry about stopping at macdonalds for a quick lunch.  Most places can accommodate our 24 footer, even dairy queen😀

Well we've owned our used 2350 and done all the little tweaks we can think of.  Thought I would share them.  I hope I can add the photos in the right order. Generally, when I say "we", that means my husband executed my idea😃 Smile.

We removed the cutting board that we didn't use and replaced it with a metal silverware compartment to give us a little more utensil storage.

We removed the coffee pot shelf.  Took the wood and made a shelf at the foot of the corner bed to hold a projection clock and little stuff you remove at night.

We attached wire baskets under those little corner upholstered shelves to put our tablet, phones or papers in.  (Don't leave stuff in them when driving).

We replaced the original tv and took the board behind it that matched our cabinets to make a cover for the ugly, naked DVD player in the bed area. Now it looks finished.

A bamboo silverware caddy from Bed, Bath & Beyond mounted to the wall beside the sofa holds those remotes.

We found a nice drop leaf table that folds to about 6" wide to replace the cumbersome, heavy table that was included with the PC.  It matches perfectly, stores behind the driver seat when traveling, is easy for me to set up and opens either one or two leafs for a nice dining area or just for working with one leaf up.

We found a nice ottoman that is small enough to get around with the slide in while traveling, but works for a foot rest with the sofa and the recliner with slide out.  The top lifts for much needed storage, flips to make a coffee table and functions for extra seating.

You were the reason we planned the trip. Thank you for your post.  Theleaves were not colorful and it rained or was cloudy every day but we enjoyed having a beautiful highway almost entirely to ourselves.  The park had a sign along one stretch of the highway marking a huge tornado in MAy 2011.  Made us think maybe spring wouldn't be quite as much fun😃😃 Grin.  The crews kept the road beautifully even with leaves and debris in the rain.

Spent the last two weeks traveling the Natchez Trace parkway from Nashville to Natchez and back. Beautiful area.  We stopped at Rock springs on the way back.  We had to drive around a very narrow park road to get to a trail head.  We left our 2350 in the parking lot.  Low and behold when we returned there was abeautiful PC 2400 parked behind us in the middle of nowhere.  We met a very nice couple who had only had their  PC for a couple of months.  They are from Tennessee.  Theirs was the only PC we saw in over 1200 miles.

Spotted this beauty in Spartanburg SC today.  Didn't get to say hello since we were taking our daughter to chemo.  If you are on this forum, hello and hope you are enjoying your travels.

I love the recgovcamping app. We like national parks, COE and NFS campgrounds, many campground reservation are made on recreation.gov.  Not sure if it has been made available for android since I have it on my iPhone and iPad.  I also like PocketRanger which makes apps for various state and national parks.

Loving the backsplash.  Did you have the ugly mirror and was it hard to remove or leave damage?
