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.
593  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Replaced Our Barrel Chair With A 3rd Captain Seat on: January 15, 2011, 10:58:49 am
We were thinking of doing something similar.

We just traded in our 2350 Sprinter with the barrel chair for a 2011 2551. We hoped that we could put a captains chair behind the cab passenger seat. We just went over to our "Factory Direct" dealer and measured the space and it looks like it is not doable.

At the Tampa Show, yesterday, we saw the 2552 with the Euro chair and it really looks super. Unfortunately, there is not enough space in the 2551.

If you come up with an idea, let us know. We did see a narrow Captain's Chair made by Flexsteel--24" wide with the arms at the show but that will not fit.

Gosh and we are complaining about 55 degrees!

We think that PC's are the best. We have a 2350 now and have placed an order for a 2551. The only reason  we are trading in our 2350 is that we want twin beds. As we get "older" crawling over one another in the middle of the night is not our idea of a good night's sleep. As a matter of fact, most everything will be the same - colors etc. Unfortunately, we will be losing 17 MPG on the Sprinter. But I guess a good rest is worth the added fuel cost.

I believe most folks who have PC's really like them. I have seen a couple of posts on different forums from folks who are not happy but they seem to be in the minority.

Welcome to the Forum!

We just signed a contract for our 2nd PC. We bought a 2350 on the Sprinter chassis last year and spent 3 monthes travelling with it. Loved it and got, on average, 17 MPG. We are now trading it in, with the factory for a 2551. We will sacrifice milage for comfort (twin beds).

The customer service from the factory is super. The folks that work there are so helpful. We had some minor problems with the 2350 and they were addressed immediately.

Guess you can tell, we are happy PC owners.

We are going to have the ladder mounted on this one. It is a much cleaner look without the ladder on the back but we don't have access to a ladder so it will be easier to climb onto the roof if needed.

We have used the Winegard antenna on many occassions. Since we tend to stay at State Parks, Provincial Parks (in Canada) and Corps of Engineers Parks, it works very well for us. Maybe the newer models are more powerful.

We will have the factory modify the under bed door.

What's happening with your chair? Got it yet?

Great idea. Once we get our 2551, looks like that is something we will do.

OH wow! It seems that trading a 2350 for a 2551 is the thing to do! We did it as well; signed the contract last Monday.

The reason is the comfort factor. We are getting older and crawling out of the corner bed in the middle of the night, is a PIA. When you are on the road for 3 monthes or more, as we were last year, twin beds seem like the way to go.

We ordered ours with no slide but a table and two captains chairs. We found that the dinette seating was uncomfortable.

We went with insulated glass again. Full body paint, cherry cabinetry, premium convenience package and surround sound and No carpeting in the coach.

We loved our 2350 Sprinter. We are sacrificing great mileage for comfort but++++++++++!

You guys are the first to know. We haven't even told the family. They think we are nuts as it is!
