After spending a week in Massachusetts attending to the aftermath of "irene", we decided to make our way to Danforth Bay in New Hampshire. There are about 6 PCs here as we speak.

We are in site C7 by the babbling brook! COME ON DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!! (when the rain stops)

We're Baaaak!!!!!!!!!!!!

Decided to cut our trip short and head to Mattapoisett, MA to ride out Irene with the sisters. We got power back on Thursday--5 days without and phones, internet and tv today.

The Cruiser was a life saver! We put all their frozen stuff in our freezer. George's sister is on oxygen at night so she slept in the PC with her oxygen running. She was able to get portable oxygen on Wed.

We plan to head to Danforth Bay NH on Tuesday and "crash" the reunion and meet up with folks we met along the way.

This forum is a great place to get/give ideas and thoughts about the PC.

We are on our 2nd  newPC in 2 years. We really loved the ride of our 2350 Sprinter. Now we have a 2011 2551. Love the design of the interior-it is very comfortable.

We have asked many questions and received many answers. We plan to make some additions when we get back to our home in Florida.

Hi Bob

Thanks for your info. I have already changed my tire pressure per your June 30 evaluation. Our 2551 w/o slide is 2000# lighter than you are. I'll be checking on shock replacements when I return home at the end of Sept.

I like the recommendation of the Koni FSD shocks.

I would be interested in what changes were made to correct the handling problem. I'm not happy with the ride in our new 2551.

Yeah, we are in PEI and the temp this morning was 57F and we are FREEZING; although 57 is certainly better than 108+++++++++

We are in PEI now and just started taking pictures of lighthouses. We just took a picture of the 2551 in the same spot as the picture of the 2350 Sprinter. It will be fun to see them side by side.

We had our 2350 Sprinter weighed last year when we left for our 3 month trip. Our Sprinter did not have a slide. Total weight unloaded was 9200 lbs. The front axle was 3400 lbs and the rear was 5800 lbs.

Loaded total weight was 10,360 lbs. Front axle was 3660 and the rear was 6700 lbs.

We are now in Maine, having travelled from Florida in our 2551. We still love the ride of the Sprinter as compared to the Ford E450. We have had 2 Sprinters; the 5 cylinder  and 6 cylinder. This is our first Ford.

We had a 2010 2350 Sprinter and traded it this year for a 2011 2551 (Ford chassis). The reason we traded the Sprinter was the corner bed. It did not work for us. The 2551 has twin beds which are much more comfortable for extended cruising. If there was a twin bed model PC Sprinter, we certainly would have stayed with the Sprinter. We are now in Massachusetts and the Ford has 3400 miles. Here are our Pros and Cons:

Better ride on the Sprinter, Better MPG with the Sprinter, Cab more comfortable in the Sprinter.
Finding diesel is a problem at times and the cost of diesel is greater.

2551 is a bigger vehicle. The 2350 Ford is an E350 and the 2551 is E450. The heat that radiates from the floor in our 2551 .is very hot. The legroom is the cab is less than the Sprinter.

It is still too early to really tell how we like the 2551. For us, it was all about the coach accomodations and that was the reason for the trade. Coach House builds a twin bed Sprinter but the cost is high.

After leaving Promised Land State Park at 6:15 AM, we took RT 84 through PA into CT. The road was so rough our toilet seat broke! The hinges rattled apart! Now, George has to try to fix the seat before we leave for Maine, New Brunswick and PEI.

Then call Carol to try to get a new seat delivered somewhere++++++++++

We are now in Mattapoisett MA 'til Monday.

It was fun to meet Bob and Peg at Promised Land SP. Fun couple of hours! Nice people, as I am sure most PC owners are!

She's loaded and ready to go. We are tired and ready to go. We should get  out of the heat and humidity of Florida at 6:00 A.M. tomorrow.

Hope to see you either on the road or at one of the campgrounds we will be at.

Two monthes in the new 2551 should be a blast.

Hope to see Bob and Peg at Promised Land State Park in PA and Dick and Trish in PEI or Nova Scotia.

You learn something new every day on the Forum! I checked with Dish Network and they are not available in Canada. Now we know not to waste our time trying to get sat t.v in Canada.

We brought along our Winegard Carryout and our Dish Network receiver last year and did not use it once. Didn't even try! We found that, with the batwing antenna, we picked up many stations--not as many as with the Dish network, but enough for us. Actually, we really got used to the Canadian stations.

We have had problems with our cell phone in all the Provinces so we try not to use it. We have found that some Provincial Parks have internet service and the Visitor's Center in PEI has computers that one can use as well as WiFi. We park in the Wood Islands Visitor Center's parking lot and use our laptop. It's great!

We did not get to Halifax last year so this year it is a possibility.

Another place that we enjoyed was Campobello Island, New Brunswick. We toured Roosevelt's Summer Home. We stayed at Herring Cove Provincial Park on the island. Nice but rustic. Oh yeah! The state bird of the Maritimes is the mosquito. Bring bug spray.
