I bought my 2010 from the internet price and my 2012 from a show using the internet price. In both cases they used the NADA book for my trade in. This was before Earl came onboard, so you would have to call him to find out.
One nice thing about paying the internet price is you know you got a fair deal, without any the hassle.  ThumbsUp

Tom,

I think your fingers were on the wrong numbers.  Your post refers to a 2550 and 2551.  I think you meant 2551 and 2552.

Sue

Thanks Sue you are correct. That is what I get for typing on my ipad with my pea brain.

It depends when in 2011 your unit was made. Phoenix started making the 2551 in the middle of 2011, so if it has the euro chair behind the passengers seat, it is a 2551, otherwise it is most likely a 2550. We saw the 2551 at the Hershey RV show in September 2011. The 2551 started as a model year 2012.

Hi Lakedog, welcome to our merry little band.

If it was me in your circumstances I would condsider the 2400 that is already built because the wheel base is 6 inches longer, better ride and handling, while the coach is only 2 inches longer than the 2350. I would have the factory remove the front euro chair and put the dogs bed there. I would leave the table and rear chair for working and eating at. I would ask them to make a drop down floor to cover the step. Hinged to the wall with a rope to pull it back up. Some type of latch to hold it up.

I know making up a bed every night can a sob, but the bed in the 2350 we had was a real SOB to make.

For a short while Phoenix used a fixture that had the two fluorescent tubes and a single dome light bulb in it. I bought seven of these from Carol and replaced the lights over the beds, in the bath room, under cabinets in the living room and one spare. I left the main ceiling lights the old two tube. Now if I want a lot of light I turn on the tubes and a night when I want just a little light the dome lights come on. I don't know if Carol still can get these fixtures or not. The new fixtures are slightly narrower and thinner but I was able to make them work. I Replaced the hotter than hell reading lights with LED bulbs I found on the internet. They are bight enough to read by but don't give off the heat. No more burnt fingers.

I just stuck them between a couple of things like the battery and the fender, any where away from heat.  One bag Under each hood and one in outside draw.

When we had mice under the hood of our cars, i read about a product called "Freah Cal". I found it at my local Ace hardware store. I put one bag under the hood of each car and the PC. No more mice. It has a stong but fresh smell that rodents don't like.

When one is as lazy as I am, this might be the solution otherwise use 2F's solution above.

Before you start replacing your batteries take a picture of the wiring. You can refer to this picture when rewiring to insure you have it correct. Wink

Remove the negative/ground wire first. Replace the that wire last. This will prevent sparking, which can be a bad thing.

About 8 mpg maybe a little more or a little less depending on conditions and you way of driving.

Go to the Phoenix home page. Look for "Phoenix Owner's Club"  about 2/3 the way down and click on it. That page we tell you all about the club and allow you to print the latest newsletter. In the newsletter is the current information about the reunion.

This year the reunion will be at the Nashville KOA in September.

We went to our first reunion last year and had a great time. Normally I don't join manufactures clubs because I switch motorhome brands to often, except now I think I have found a home with Phoenix.

Sometimes we run with just the windows open, sometimes just the cab A/C, sometimes with both the cab and roof A/C. It has to be pretty hot for me to use both A/Cs, but I do it for the dog in the back.

Yes the generator runs off the gas tank until the tank get below about 1/3 empty, then it shuts down. That way the generator will not run you out of gas, you have to do that yourself.  LOL

I have walked on it but the roof is slightly rounded, so I would not be partying up there. But then maybe you are the one fan that does not drink, so you could sit on the roof.

    I totally agree with Ron, go to the factory. They will show you new units and how they are built, which is far better than a showroom with completed models only. I drove 10 hours to see it and felt it was worth the time. I have bought two PCs since then.

    Another option is to call the factory and ask if anyone that lives near you can show you theirs. There is a program where if you show your PC to someone and that person buys one, they get a small reward.

    As for the larger models on the Ford E450 cutaway van, it is just that, normal V10 with normal baking system. Last Sept. 2014 we went from Maryland over the mountains in western Maryland and Pennsylvania and on to Estes Park, Colorado then down to Colorado Springs for the Phoenix club reunion. We were towing a 2004 Jeep Liberty at the time. We did not have any problems going up or down the mountains.   

    I would not own and motorhome without HWH leveling jacks. There are just to many camp sites that are not level and I will not sleep with my feet above my head. Besides who wants their drink to slide off the table?
