Thanks for the help. We have taken 26 to 77 and then on to 81/84. Which way do you go to Ashville?

Two years ago, we stopped in Natural Bridge VA, then on to Promised Land State Park in PA and then to Cape Cod. This time we are bypassing Cape Cod on the way up. Got to get to PEI for Aug. 4. We plan to stop in Scarborough ME and then to New River Beach in New Brunswick and then on to PEI.

I guess I was wondering about going up 95 to maybe Fredericksburg VA and then cut across to 81 and onward. This year we have to get to PEI for a specific event so time is of the essence and we really don't want to spend $$$$$$ in tolls. Gas is going to break the bank as it is. Remember, we traded in our PC 2350 Sprinter for the 2551 in January.

We have travelled to PEI for the last two years and plan to go again this year.
Due to family reasons, we cannot take our dear sweet time as we have done in the past.
We will leave FL on/about July 27 and want to get to PEI in the shortest amount of time. We do not want to go through Washington/Baltimore/NY as Mapquest suggests. And we do not want to break the bank for tolls so----
Anyone got any suggestions???
95 to 81 to 84--where to cross from 95 to 81?
Campgrounds on the way.

     How was your trip to the Keys and did you use your oven??

Unfortunately we had to cancel our trip to the Keys. My mother (92) was rushed to the hospital so didn't go and haven't used the oven yet. We are planning on two trips in the next couple of monthes so will use it then (I hope).

We have a Swagman bike rack on the hitch. It partially obstructs the plate on the rear when the bikes are on it.

We've never been pulled over so who knows if it is problem.

Another congrats here! It is very exciting. I know you will love it.

We are planning another trip to MA this summer-it will be good to, possibly, see another PC on the road. You don't see too many of 'em.

We are in Florida and were, initially, in the same predicament as you. I saw the PC on the Internet but we needed to see one in person, so we found one in Tampa to look at. We loved it and ordered one from the factory and had it delivered to Atlanta, where we picked it up. We did all of this by phone, email etc. Needless to say, it all went off smoothly. This was our 2010 PC 2350.

We had a couple of issues, got a quote here in FL., had the work done and got a check within a couple of weeks. Painless. Not every RV is perfect when you take delivery unless you are at the factory to take delivery--and we didn't want to drive to Indiana in January to take delivery.

So, in December we ordered, again fron Stuart, our 2011 PC 2551. Again, an effortless transaction. If you look at our photos on the Forum, we did a couple of "custom" things. We love our PC.

Welcome to the Forum!

We totally understand. We had an Airstream Interstate on the Sprinter chassis. After one year, found it too small. sooooooooooooooooooo+++

We bought a 2010 Phoenix Cruiser 2350 on the Sprinter. Loved the handling, the mileage, the room in the cab but realized we didn't like the double bed in the corner. It was very difficult to get out in the middle of the night. S00000000000000000***

We ordered a 2011 Phoenix 2551 and had Phoenix build it to suit us. We call it the "the 2551 For Two". The only thing we don't like about it is the gas mileage. We posted pictures on the Forum.

We have always been successful with emailing Amanda. She is very thorough and will get the email to the correct person.

What steering stabilizer did you use?

I'll let you know next week. We are going to the Keys and plan to use it for the 1st time.

How did he raise that laptop table? Did they build another unit for you? We thought of taking it out and putting a small chair in that space.

We had the coach delivered to Florida. I didn't want to travel to Elkhart in Feb. to pick it up. When we got it home, we realized that the table between the captain's chairs was too small. Couldn't even get 2 plates on it. We called Kermit, gave him the size it should have been and he sent us a new top which George installed.

We can't say enough good things about the customer service at Phoenix. They go out of their way to help.

You got it!

Where the extra chair would be in a 2552, we have a little table that opens up for a laptop. When the passenger seat is swiveled around, it is too low to use the table comfortably.

We asked Stuart about another chair and he said there was not enough room. We kind of think otherwise but that is something for next year.

3 motorhomes in 3 years is too many. This is a keeper!

I bought the comforter at Walmart for $25. I cut it in half and then whip stitched each cut side which now faces the walls. I did it by hand because I don't have a sewing machine. It worked out well. The comforter was a twin.

We bought a full foam mattress topper and cut that in half and put on top of the mattress. Then a mattress pad. The beds were more comfortable than our bed at home.

We absolutely love the 2551. As I have said before, if we knew that there was a 2552 option when we placed our order we would have gone with the 2552 for the extra chair.

Not surprised You noticed the wine glasses under the table! Gotta have my one glass of Merlot--good for the old ticker>

Anyway, we got the rack on Ebay and the glasses are some sort of lucite. When the table is in the down position, everything fits perfectly and no breakage for the glasses.
