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.

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!

Even the non-rookies sometimes make a "mistake" with the sani-con cap--just ask George!

We live pretty close to Fort Myers Beach--about 1/2 hour or so depending on traffic. When you get there, give us a shout on the forum. We can check out each other's PC.

You can park the RV at the Visitor Center. I don't remember what they charge per hour but parking is available there as well as other lots around the Visitor Center.

Just thought of something else++++

About 2 hours South of Savannah is Fernandina Beach Florida with the best State Park we have ever been to. It is called Fort Clinch State Park. There is a campground, a neat fort, super beach with swimming. The only problem is that it is hard to make a reservation. It's always booked but check on Reservamerica. There may be an opening if you are interested.

We stayed at Skidaway State Park in June in our 2350. It is right outside of Savannah and a very easy drive into the city.

Since we do not tow, we parked at the Visitors Center (they offered free parking for an hour) and then went over to a garage that gave us free parking with the Trolley Tour. The tour was very informative.

We only spent a day in Savannah itself but should have spent more time walking around but in June the temp was 105 and humid so we went on our way.

We plan to go to Myrtle Beach and to the Outer Banks this coming summer so if you can give us any info on that leg of our trip, it would be appreciated.
