Welcome to the Forum. I know you will love your Phoenix Cruiser.

We just traded in our 2350 and took delivery of our 2551 on Monday. Two new PC's in two years! Guess that goes to show how satisfied we are.

We are in Punta Gorda, FL. If you are nearby, shoot us a Private Message, we'd love to meet you and talk Phoenix.

I believe that we did inquire about the twin beds on a Sprinter chassis but we were told it was a no go due to the weight of the unit. I do know that Coach House has twins on the Sprinter but it is a shorter unit and the base price is somewhere in the high hundreds===too much. Actually, way too much!

So, the 2551 was the way to go. Spent the day showing off the unit to the neighbors and washing the baby. Tomorrow it gets a new windshield, since the windshield got cracked on the way from Elkhart to Florida.

We will get it aligned and then go from there with the ride.

Judi & George,

You will have to share your experience with the Ford chassis compared to the Sprinter chassis you gave up.  I assume the challenges with the rear corner double bed was the main reason for the switch to main isle twin beds.  Would you have gotton a Sprinter chassis if it was available for the 2551?
You bet!! Couple of pluses for the Sprinter: The cab was more comfortable--more room for the passsenger (And that is me).

Yeah, the corner bed was very difficult when one has to get up in the middle of the night-that was the main reason.

We brought it home today. George says that the ride in the Sprinter is much nicer than the Ford. As in previous posts, we have to look first at getting an alignment and then go from there.

We loved the design of the Sprinter. The snub nose of the Ford is not as visually appealing as the Sprinter. Loved the mileage-17 MPG last summer on our big trip.

We will get used to the Ford. Twin beds is a good thing.

Check the battery switch . This is the switch as you come in the door. You have to turn it on for battery power. Are you able to turn on the over head light? You shouldn't need the invertor to run the pump or fridge.

We are like new parents waiting for the kid to pop out! Tomorrow we meet Kraig Fisher at the Clearwater/St. Pete Airport (no it isn't flying in) to take delivery of our 2011 PC2551.

This will be our 2nd new PC in two years. We traded in our 2350 Sprinter and it was sold in about 12 days.

Let's hope that it arrives early so we can get it back to Punta Gorda.

1000 lbs of wine would be good as long as it's a good merlot!

That is great! I know you are going to love your PC! Better a little late than never.

Our new 2551 is supposed to be here in Florida either the 17th or 18th. Hope it's on time. We are getting antsy. We ordered it on Dec. 1.

Don't forget to change your profile on the forum.

Who delivered your rig?

Forgot to add that we are having the flip up shelf made of the Corian instead of the wood.

We are waiting, patiently (?) for our 2011 2551 to arrive. Scheduled to be in Florida Feb. 17 or 18.

We ordered with insulated glass windows. We had them in the 2350 Sprinter and they eliminated road noise and helped with the noise from loud campers in the evening.

When we ordered the 2350 last year, we ordered the Coach with no carpeting and we had sent to Phoenix,  an Armstrong vinyl that looks like wood. It was called Echo Lake Natural. We had it drop shipped from Home Depot to Phoenix. It is really good looking. Unfortunately, they also put down carpet! Since we picked up the Coach in Atlanta, we reluctantly accepted the carpeting.

On the 2551, again we chose to have no carpet. We find that the carpet gets spilled on and looks bad. Unfortunately, to keep costs in control, we are going with the flooring that is standard. I really dislike the look of it but I intend to cover it with runners.

There is a 2910 at the "Factory Store" here in Punta Gorda. We really like the layout of the unit. It should be more than acceptable for 2 adults and 2 dogs.

I looked on our Vehicle Information sheet for an RPM limiter but nothing listed. There is a listing for an Electronic Speed Limitation device. I don't know if it is one in the same. Our new 2551 was ordered without the Electronic Speed Limitation device.

You might check with your local Ford dealer. He can run a vehicle information report with the VIN #.
We are waiting for our new 2551. I took the VIN # to our local Ford dealer. The report lists all of the features that the chassis has been ordered with. On our printout, it states that it was ordered with power door locking, less side door security lockset  and less door entry remote control unit.   Without the remote control unit, remote locks are not avalabile from Ford. Hopefully yours will have the remote control unit.
I think it all depends on how the chassis  is ordered.

I used the drawer to store 2 water hoses, 2 power cables, extra extension cords and 4, 2x10x18" leveling blocks.
The drawer did leak. I added some gasket material to the left side to stop the leak.
 I also changed the U hooks in the back, they just unscrew. I built 2 shelves to hold fuel canisters for the grill, torch fuel and cleaning sundries. This left room for a beach umbrella, 5x9' rug, extension handles, wash mits and ax. I stored 2 zero gravity chairs, a director's chair, a 2' step ladder, gas grill and a box for distilled water in the storage above the drawer. We got a lot of stuff in a small space. I would attach a picture if I could figure out how to do it!

Has anyone moved the back-up monitor forward in the Ford?  I moved the monitor forward in our sprinter. I would think the monitor could redplace one of the courtesy lights in the Ford.

That goes to show what an exceptional company Phoenix USA is. Their customer service is top shelf.

That is one of the reasons that we have our 2nd PC in two years on order now--they took our 2010 2350 Sprinter in trade and we are waiting (anxiously) for our  2011 2551 to be completed.

Judy,

That is why the 2552 was designed.  It specifically provides the space for a 3rd seat.  The only thing I can think of is to get the 2552.

When we placed our order on Dec. 1, we did not know that there was such a thing as a 2552 so it seems that we will get the 2551 and be happy with that.
