6' 3" will not work on the twin beds.  I'm 6' and just fit.  You'll need a bed in a slide-out, but plan on your feet hanging over. Even at 6', my feet hung over in a model 2900 (no longer made).

This is our second PC so obviously we are impressed and satisfied.  We only traded for a floor plan that we liked better: full one-room bath (no isle in the middle), both a sofa and a dinette, room for a recliner and lots of storage.  We also wanted to avoid the extra weight and complexity more than one slide.  We usually stay days even weeks at time, rarely ever boondock, so the 3100 has been perfect.  No handling issues at all.  I sometimes think a few folks want a close-to-car ride in a motorhome and get caught up the minutia and cost of making changes with ever diminishing returns.

Glad to hear of your good experience.  I have been reluctant to report the same good experience for our 3100 after reading all of the posts about handling problems and posts about adding accessories to improve handling.  We bought our model 3100 new in 2011.  We have never added any accessories to improve handling and never experienced any handling problems.  A little push from big rigs on the interstate occasionally, but I had that with our previous Class A.  We tow a Chevy HHR and rarely know its there.  Perhaps the extra wheel length and having just the one slide are factors in the good handling.

Mount brackets with screws then attach the towel bar.  The shower board is pretty thick.  Have used this for six years now and works nicely.  Its high and doesnt get wet.  Very solid but not to be used as a grab bar!

We liked the towel bar on the door so well, we added a second one as pictured...

No. Only the two accessories in the shower use suction cups as pictured.  The others are attached with screws.  There's a wood header behind the sliding door panel to anchor the towel bar securely.

We added these to our PC and are happy with all the choices.  The suction cups in the bath work great and have surprisingly never fallen, even over the winter in storage, although I do push on them occasionally to reseat them.

Ill have to admit Im puzzled by the aversion to memory foam.  We just spent the month of March at a Florida RV resort and found the memory foam toppers to very comfortable.  The extra height was not a problem for us.  Never experienced them to be hot, even in Florida.  A great solution for us easy and economical.   nod

We didn’t much like our mattresses either.  But finding RV (bunk bed) size is a problem.  I added a 3” memory foam topper which works really great.  Bought this: http://www.overstock.com/Bedding-Bath/Dream-Form-Ventilated-3-inch-Memory-Foam-Mattress-Topper/5309595/product.html?refccid=YIOVTWGIHPZ2UDSJLTBW67I4EU&searchidx=9.  Bought the King Size and cut it in two pieces with an electric knife; goes through it like butter.  Google a video on how to cut memory foam – very easy.  Worked well because the mattresses are not exactly the same length.  Then covered everything with quality mattress pads.

Assume you could completely replace the entire mattress with something like this: http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Sarah-Peyton-Convection-Cooled-10-inch-King-size-Memory-Foam-Mattress/4141898/product.html?refccid=OD76C635UFSKUZKCP24CQ7YIF4&searchidx=3, and cut it in two pieces.

Our first PC (now on our second) was a 2900, no longer made.  We were also told when we bought it that mud flaps could not be added due to the position of one of the tanks.  We added a rock guard, http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/ultra-guard-94-w-x-20-h-for-motorhomes/13300, which worked fine.  We did not experience any problems with it picking up small rock as mentioned above.  We did try a bra, but it rubbed the paint bad idea for us.

Warning going to a rally with Kermit there is dangerous.  We ended up our second PC doing that.

We have model 3100 with the usual mud flaps.  We dont have a problem with rock or debris damage to the tow car.  The only problem is driving in rain which, of course, covers the car with a film of dirt.

Enjoy your Adventure Caravans trip.  Weve been on several and always had a great experience.  Going on their Chicago trip this fall and the American Music Trail next year.

Heres another idea, Valterra's SewerSolution.  No motor at all.
