1  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: PC 3100 and PC 2351 Owners ... purchase dilemma on: November 28, 2015, 08:47:13 am
Our 3100 was not a problem.  Just depends on how you travel.  We rarely stayed in national or state parks, almost exclusively in private parks with all the amenities.  Have never stayed in a Walmart or rest area.  We usually stayed for several days, sometimes a month, and always made heavy use of our tow car (pic).  We first had a 2900 (not made now) and traded for the 3100 which fit our style better.  If there was one best model (or even one best RV style), everyone would own the same one.  Buy what fits your style of travel.  The only time we did not take a tow car was on our Alaska trip and Route 66 trip which worked out for the best:  We loved the 3100 and never regretted the choice.

Ron, I too wish you best in retirement.  Reading your posts for years now, Im not much worried about you making good use of it.  I didnt exactly retire I got retired at age 53 when my company was sold and moved from Ohio to Texas.  I did some consulting work for two years when I could start receiving my pension at age 55.  Unlike some other officers, I exercised and kept my stock options rather than cashing them in.  So we bought a bigger motorhome and travelled, travelled, travelled.  Guess I could have found a lesser job and kept working, but now I wouldnt have changed a thing. 

Like it says at end of all my posts, I remember very few of the things that Ive spent money to buy, but I remember all of the places that Ive spent money to see.

We've driven the Trace twice, last in 2012 (pic).  Had a really great book with us that made it very interesting:

I too always opened one vent a little.  Never a problem until last year when wasps decided it was a great place for a nest, in spite of a Maxxair cover.  The nest was attached to the bottom of the vent lid and above the screen.  It was a mess to remove.

I had an extended warranty once (not GS).  Tried to use it once long story, but they wouldnt pay for a ridiculous reason.  Never bought it again.  We have always had State Farm insurance, about $570/yr.  They paid a few times over 30 years, no problems, no increases.  Got quotes from GS twice, always quite a bit higher.  I always preferred to have coverage all year long in case of storm damage or vandalism.

Our first trip without the PC to see some fall color, Shawnee State Park Lodge, southeastern Ohio.  Nice lodge, but strange bed, bath, etc.  And cant find a thing in all these bags.  Now which end of this suitcase goes up?  Ugh.    sad

Thanks to everyone for the kind words.  Were already missing our Phoenix, beautiful camping in southern Ohio and Kentucky in the fall.  Should add that the cash buyers flew into the Dayton, OH airport to pick up our PC and drive it back to its new home Idaho!  A really big downsize from a Country Coach three previous diesel pushers.  Said he was looking for the same quality.   ThumbsUp

Had it listed on several sites, but the posting here on the forum resulted in the sale.  Says he liked all the great things owners said about their PC; heard about it because his neighbor was buying a new one from the factory.  Had 30 responses from all listings, five from this forum.  Had some real doozies, and at least three fairly obvious scams: buy it now at full price, will arrange for pickup, delete all listings, "I am your most desirable buyer," etc.  One claimed to be buying for his son and would be shipping it to Valencia, Spain.  It's real trip selling yourself.

Sold our beloved Phoenix Cruiser its now on its way to Idaho!  Been camping/RVing for 37 years: tent; EZ Ryder; Mallard Sprinter; Fleetwood Southwind; 2008 Phoenix Cruiser; 2011 Phoenix Cruiser (pics of each).  Been in 49 states by motorhome and had wonderful life RVing.  Age and health have ended it but lots of great memories.

Just to say, we've had a 3100 for four years - have never drug the rear end.

RKS, we would still like to sell.  Have had some offers but none acceptable.  Looks like we will still be travelling.

We have some Smartphone apps we use: Good Sam, Google Maps, Gas Buddy.  But assume there are some useful apps that we are not using and perhaps should be.  Recommendations?
