Please give us the info on where you got the Corian. My husband doesn't know it yet but we  are going to duplicate your shelf on our 2350 Sprinter.

We also mounted a satin nickel paper towel holder under the medicine cabinet. Got it at Bed Bath and Beyond. It looks good, matches the knobs and solves the problem of water all over the sink when he shaves and washes his hands.

We tried to send a picture of some of our additions, but had no luck.

Wow! Very impressive. We printed and will see if our 2350 Sprinter has the same components as yours.

We spoke with Beau at Diamondshield and they recommend using Mequiars Flagship Premium Marine Wax #6316 on the Coach. We used it. The shine is beautiful. Then use 303 Protectant over the wax.

We were 62 days last summer in our Airstream Interstate (B) and plan on 3 monthes this summer in our Phoenix 2350 Sprinter.

One thing to keep in mind is the many State Parks, National Parks and Provincial Parks (Canada) that are around.

We will be leaving Florida on June 20 on our way to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The first 10 days we will be staying in State Parks and National Parks every night with the exception of 2 nights. That will save us some $$$.

Any of you guys heading to the Maritimes this summer??

What is the make and model of your inverter and battery charger in the RV?

It is an on/off switch. If left in the off position, the step will open and close as you open and close the door. If left in the on position, the step will stay extended when you open and close the door unless you start the engine.

Keep it in the on position if you are going to be in and out of the coach.

Like Ron, we opted not to have the ladder so I cannot comment on bikes on the ladder; although my husband did not think the ladder would be strong enough for 2 bikes (we have our ladder in the garage).

We bought a Swagman bike rack at Camper's World for our bikes and it works well; however, we do not tow anything (at this point). We had it on our Airstream Interstate and it's perfect for the PC.

We took delivery of a 2350 Sprinter two monthes ago. We had it delivered. Did not go to the factory to pick it up.
There were a couple of minor issues; a mouse ate a small hole in the engine insulation, a couple of stripped bolts and paint chips on the bumper.
Phoenix was proactive when we told them of the issues. They sent us new insulation, bolts and a check to have the paint redone on the bumper.
Can't say enough good things about the company.
We are in the US. Don't know about getting issues resolved in the UK.

Got a question about Diamondshield. Has anyone noticed any yellowing or cracking of the Diamonshield on your coach. If so, how old is the RV and what did you do about it?

Our 2350 has it applied. Since it is new, it looks great but we have heard horror stories about the product. We recently saw a '06 Monaco that the Diamondshield was yellow and cracking. The RV repair shop was stripping it off and the owner of the shop doesn't recommend any of the clear coatings for that reason.

Thanks as always

We have the 2350 Sprinter as well. We agree with NC Sailors regarding the reasons that we chose the diesel over the gas. Our previous RV was a 2005 Airstream Interstate (Class B) with the Mercedes diesel. Good mileage and dependable.

For us, the dinette option was the best option. We did not need the extra sleeping space. There is more storage. We did not want to set up the table everytime we wanted to use it. Also there is less weight without the slide. To each his own!

Welcome to the forum.
We just took delivery of our 2350 Sprinter last month and are lovin' it already. We just have to get used to all the room and where to store stuff (we had a Class B prior to the 2350).

The gated community sounds great. We live in a deed restricted community and have to pay monthly to store the RV.

We are heading to the Canadian Maritimes again this summer.

Enjoy your PC.

Looks like we will be heading over to West Marine today to check out the nesting sets.

Where do you store your provisions?

I am considering putting the pots and pans under the dinette. Last summer we spent 62 days in our Airstream Interstate B and had our stuff everywhere. Now we have so much more storage space and the issues are where and how to make the best use of the space. I guess that will come with time.

We have used heavy duty Velcro in the past so that is the thought with mounting the toilet paper holder to the outside wall. I will let you know how that works out.

Our plan this summer is the Blue Ridge Parkway to New England and on to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island Canada. We should be gone longer than 62 days this time.

We have the same unit which we picked up a month ago and are working on the same issues(as well as some others)

We bought a toilet paper holder and plan to mount it next to the sink--between the shower and the sink. We also have a towel holder for above the toilet; this we will use for a hand towel. In our B, which we just traded in for the Sprinter, we used the Command stick on large white plastic hooks in the shower area for the bath towels. That is where we dried them after use (if we couldn't leave them out).

We have not as yet taken our first trip overnight. We have reservations at Oscar Scherer State Park this coming Monday and Tuesday.

I am having difficulty in determining the best place to store pots and pans. Where do you store your?

You might want to consider upgrading to an AGM battery. The benefits are that it takes a deeper discharge, there is no liquid to contend with and as a result there is no corrosion from the acid spilling.

Many battery manufacturers produce them--DEKA, Interstate and more.

If you have a West Marine near you, you can check them out.
