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  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?

Really love this! We have struggled with the loss of the dinette when we downsized to our 2350.  Do you have a step cover?  I think our recliner would over hang the door step opening.  I hinted to my husband😀

My husband uses a bicycle lock with a cable.  The surge protector was designed with a metal plate attached with dual holes to utilize a lock.

We had a high density foam mattress made for our 2350. It is approximately 6" deep and sits on top of a 3" memory foam. We are fairly satisfied with our purchase. No more trouble than the original mattress for entry/exit and much more comfortable. Nothing helps in making up those corner beds, although you can bend the foam without damage to help put the sheets in place.  We found a guy locally who used our old mattress as a form and cost us about $150. Well worth it. I imagine that shipping costs are pretty steep for a special order mattress.

Thanks for the help.  We figured it out just after posting.  Sometimes we make simple way to complicated Grin
14  Main Forum / General Discussion / Cable box on: May 07, 2015, 07:24:26 pm
Help. We purchased our 2010 2350 used.  We have the Samsung surround sound DVD player and a roof mounted satellite.  There was no traditional switch box to change from antenna to cable when we bought our unit. We installed our direct tv box and even put in a new lg TV.  We can watch DVDs from the samsung since we connected it to the TV via Hdmi.  All is well until my husband decided he wanted to try the campground cable.  Plugged it in and realized that something is missing.  Can anyone tell me if the PC comes with cable boxes or something other than the Samsung entertainment DVD player? Can't remember  what that box is that we've had in our previous motor homes.

Love our slide and haven't experienced any problems with our PC. Did have a bedroom slide get stuck in the out position on a Lexington 27 foot b+ Our first trip out in it, brand new. Also had to let a slide in on class a in heavy winds at glacier one year because it was really rocking and were worried about warping or binding.  The worst experience was not us but a poor couple who had come in ahead of us in a camp ground and killed their beloved dog when letting out their slide.  So ALWAYS use caution and especially with your pets when operating the slide!
