We ordered our 3100 with cloth seating rather than leather by choice.  Liked the feel of the cloth better.

We had a water hose give out while at a campground in Grapevine, TX.  Visited the camp store and found a 35 for the same price as a 25.  Turned out to be a useful length.  Had never seen one before, but Home Depot carries them:

And Amazon:

I also use the Garmin friction mount that has weighted bean bags.  Easy to move from the RV to the toad.  Easy to quickly move to the floor when leaving either vehicle - no GPS in sight for thieves.  And no tell-tale suction ring on the windshield alerting a thief that there is a GPS in the car.   nod

The biggest advantage to us, which outweighs all others, it that the portable unit can be moved between the RV and the tow car.

We have owned two PCs.  The first, a 2900, no longer made (pic below).  Bought it from a dealer before the big RV industry collapse and before Phoenix went factory direct (that dealer went under too).  The second, a 3100, we ordered from the factory all done over the phone.  Requested several mods.

It never occurred to me to request pics or updates, just an approximate finish date.  Got a phone call when it was done.  Drove up and completed the trade.  Everything was exactly as we requested.  Never any anguish, drama, or problems.  Had a few problems later as expected, a couple minor, and one not so minor, all quickly resolved by the factory.

A happy camper here.  I always say Go Phoenix.

We sold our 3100 after posting on several RV sale sites including this forum, RVTrader and others.  Added a link with about 40 pictures on a photo site.  It ended up selling with a lead from the For Sale by Owner link in this forum.  We live in Ohio.  The buyer flew in from Idaho with a check.  Bought it and drove it back to Idaho.  Then on to his second home in Arizona.  Bought it to replace his 40 diesel.

Ron, yes, still hangin around.  Like to see what everybody is doing and where theyre traveling.  Sure miss our PC, we talk about if often.  However, health concerns have only increased, so after 40 years of camping, it was time.  A pic from two years ago in the Smokies:

The character Newton Scamander from J.K . Rowlings new movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has a suitcase with a quality I always wanted in a motorhome.  Its larger on the inside than it is on the outside.  Always wanted a 24 motorhome that was 40 on the inside.   Grin

We used the Weber Q, worked great. Kept it in a wheeled Weber Baby Q Duffle Bag, stored it in our small SUV tow car. Still using the grill, but since we sold our PC, still have Duffle Bag, stored uselessly in our basement: Like to sell if anyone is interested.

Got lots of comments on this idea.  Started 30 years ago collecting souvenir pins.  Bought a fabric USA map on eBay, stretched it over a 24x20 artists canvas, and attached to our PC wall with Velcro.  Easy to add new pins.  Hate to think about the cost of all the pins though.  Of course we sold our PC a year ago, so now it hangs in my office.   sad

Keeping the logo on the front and back will save you some questions.  Youll find lots of folks asking about your PC.  The logo will answer the first question.   Smile

Had the same problem back arm closed fine, front arm with inch gap.  Resorted to an extra push as my wife closed it.  Not the perfect solution, but it worked.   shrug

I must admit, Im a little mystified by this whole discussion.  After 35 years of RVing, we had to sell our 3100 due to age/health issues. This was after first owning a 2900 (no longer made).  The 2900 had wandering steering, a hot doghouse, and was kind of noisy.  But then, after all, it was a truck.  The 3100 was a vast improvement.  It drove great, much quieter, no floor heat problem, and for us, a perfect floor plan.  We werent too concerned with minor issues while driving as that was generally a small part of our time in the PC.  And for us, the speakers was not an issue as we rarely used them using driving time for sightseeing, planning, talking, contemplation, and being thankful that we had this lifestyle.  Frankly, we didnt spend money on trying to fix things that only involved driving and didnt affect our camping experience.  Just my humble observations.
