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.

Yes, this is a great program.  I have my Amazon Smile account setup to support out local homeless shelter:

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:
