My problem with it is that I am a very light sleeper and the cycling on and off drives me nuts. We bought a cheap fan at Walgreens and I use that to move air around in the coach-that is, if it's not too hot.

While I'm venting--the sound of the inverter fan cycling at night drives me nuts too. I guess I'll have to get used to ear plugs--But they drive me nuts too!!! Can't win.

Barry,
Ours is a Dometic 895.400 on the 2011 2551. It's 17 ft.

It's noisy! It's not ducted. It's the air moved by the fan that makes so much noise.

We will be in New England at that time as well. Might just make reservations for a couple of nights. Will make sure we contact the Ambassador if we are there.

We'll be more than happy to help out. George's mom and dad were both born in PEI so he has many relatives there. That is why we have been going back so often (Next year to the West!). Also, we have a neighbor here in Florida who lives here 6 mo. and Nova Scotia 6 mo. Last year they took us around NS and we found places we would NEVER have found on our own.

Safe travels--too bad we were not going to be there the same time.

  (exactly)That was us with our 2350 Sprinter last year in front of the Woods Island Lighthouse on Prince Edward Island. Plan to get a photo of the 2551 in the same spot this year.

Wherever your PC takes you this weekend, snap some pictures for me!!  I'll be spending the weekend working at home, and supervising practices at the gym getting the kids ready for Nationals next month.  And while you're at it, enjoy an extra drink for me.  Smile(:We are waiting for our July trip to Nova Scotia and PEI to take some REALLY good pictures of our rig, lighthouses and spectacular scenery of the Canadian Maritimes!

Cheers!

On Monday, we are heading out from Western New York, going through New England to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and possibly take the ferry to Newfoundland.  We are planning to be gone about 3 weeks.  We don't really know what to expect. If anyone has been there before I would appreciate any words of wisdom and information.  There seems to always be a list of do s and don't s from past travelers that is worth their weight in gold.
We have gone to Nova Scotia, PEI, New Brunswick etc. for the past two years and are heading there in July. There is so much to see and do, I doubt if you will have enough time to get to Newfoundland.
We love it there! In NB, do not miss Hopewell Rocks. Tides 48-50 feet. Also, the Cabot Trail in NS is beautiful. Alexander Graham Bell Museum in Baddeck, the Louisburg Fortress. We stayed in some nice campgrounds and some not so nice. If you would like more info, PM me. I don't want to bore the rest of the gang.

Bob,
Wish I could actually measure it. The rig is at the storage facility not at home.

I got those measurements from the Walmart website. All I know, now, is that it fits perfectly between the beds.

We do need to get over there to check my Half-Time oven. After all the posts, I am curious about when it was manufactured.

We bought a runner from Walmart that fits perfectly between the twin beds. It was 30 X 46.

Getting excited about the new arrival???????????? Betcha!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are not going anywhere this weekend-other than our pool! We have one trip planned for Sebastian Inlet State Park in June and then the BIG ONE in July.

With the price of fuel, we have to save our pennies for our eight week trip to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. At $1 more per gallon than last year, less MPG than the Sprinter that we traded for the 2551 and 5000 miles or so round trip------------------

I think I'm gonna have the big one!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the Forum! We traded in our 2350 Sprinter in Feb. for a 2551. Still miss the Sprinter!! The negative, for us, was the corner bed. The twins in the 2551 are what we need at this stage in our lives. It seems that the Sprinter is right for you. Enjoy.

You will find much help and many friendly folks here.

We traded in our 2350 Sprinter for the 2551 in February. We had the oil changed on the Sprinter by a Dodge dealer. A Mercedes dealer will change it as well.  The owners manual should tell you what grade of synthetic to use-there are different grades of synthetic. The Dodge dealer had the oil that met the requirements.

Another avenue of information is the Sprinter-Source Forum. We found much useful info on the Sprinter from that Forum.

As far as we know, Jiffy Lube does not carry the grade of oil that Mercedes reccomends. Better to stay with the Dodge or Mercedes dealer.

Bob,
Love the laundry bag idea. George will have another project, although a small one.

Sue, if the bins fit, let us know where you saw them.
