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.

My thought on the cutting board is that we NEVER used it for a cutting board and rarely used it for additonal counter space.

We did use the flip up counter next to the sink so we had Phoenix make that out of the same Corian as the counter tops. Looks great and now I won't have to worry about the wood getting wet and possibly stained.

We also had the rig built without carpet-just the vinyl flooring. After one year with the 2350, the gray carpet got a couple of stains and looked "dirty" (to me!).

We are really looking forward to our return trip to Nova Scotia/PEI this summer in our new "home on wheels".

We took our "2551 For Two" on her maiden voyage last week. We had Phoenix build without the slide. In place of the dinette, we have two captains chairs with a small table. Since it is only the two of us, it makes for very comfy seating. In our previous PC, we found that the bench seating was very uncomfortable so we opted for the more comfortable captains chairs. Works out great.

We also took out the cutting board, which we never used in the 2350, and replaced it with a wire coated utensil tray from Bed Bath and Beyond.

We moved the subwoofer from under the bed storage area. We built a cabinet at the head of the bed
for the subwoofer with a place for night time tray. We needed the storage for our satellite antenna.

Congrats on your new 2551. We had ours delivered last month. Next week we are FINALLY going to spend a couple of nights at the COE Park just outside of Ft. Myers.

I can't agree with you more about the folks at Phoenix USA!!! They are the best. They do what they say they are going to do. We have been totally impressed with their customer service.

We've found there is more interior storage. Exterior storage is different than the 2350. The rear storage is the same. We have added shelving back there-it's where we keep propane cylinders, beach umbrella, outside carpet and general cleaning supplies for the exterior.

We've lost depth in the side storage. We would keep our recliners there in the 2350; can't do it in the 2551. We redid the storage under the diver's side bed to accomodate the zero gravity recliners and our satellite dome for our Winegard Carryout.

There is another storage area, outside, under the kitchen area. We haven't addressed that yet.
