Our 2552 handled very well from the factory. Didn't do a thing to it because it didn't need a thing.

For what it's worth, before we towed a car, we'd simply disconnect the electric, water and cable and leave them at the campsite coiled on the ground. In all the time we did that there was never a problem and everything was exactly where and how we'd left it.
BTW, never, ever leave you unit without shutting off the water at the source. I've seen a number of people come back to their unit to be met with a very wet surprise.

We've towed our 2013 Ford Focus and have only gotten one chip on the hood.

I have the same unit as Ron and have used it 3 times. Twice on one of the rears and once on my TOAD. Admittedly, it takes a while but it will get to 75 PSI within 10 minutes. It does get a bit hot but has not let me down. Hint: If you go this way, DON'T use the cigarette lighter. It will blow the fuse and maybe melt the plug. I had to replace both the 1st time I used it on our 2010 2551.

The most important thing I can think of right now is a good quality 12-volt air compressor.
Others will make recommendations and all will be good.
But, if I could take only 1 thing, it would be the compressor.
Second to that, if you know anything about electrics, a VOM, terminals & terminal crimpers, wire, stripper, wire cutter and fuses.

I must compliment you on a well-written and complete summary of the modifications you made and the way you laid out the photos is marvelous.
Well done.

Unfortunately, dealing with a private seller is often fraught with emotional baggage (all too often, a private seller attaches more value to their experiences than whatever is actually worth).
However, occasionally, a private seller is realistic and will sell a unit for what it's actually worth, minus a dealer's 'added value'. If you get really lucky, you can find a good buy.

If you decide to not go with the full body paint, I very strongly suggest you NOT have the decals applied to the top-front of the fiberglass cap. It will catch a lot of sun and eventually crack and/or peel (as it did on my 2 previous units). When we bought our 2552S new in 2011, I had the factory remove them but you can see an outline of where they were. If you have it built, specify no decal in that area.

And we sure don't want to confuse it with 'Politically Correct".

We have a 2011 model 2552, which has no Pantry. FWIW, a model 2551 does not have the room to place a Euro chair behind the Passenger's seat (we had a 2010 2551 and traded it on the 2552).

Towing a Ford Focus on mostly state and county roads, we normally average 9.4 to 9.8 MPG. When we are forced to run Interstates, we rarely exceed 55 MPH.
Driving Interstates gets you past the country. Driving state and county roads gets you in the country.

I'd be concerned the small diameter of the chair legs would go through the fiberglass sheet.

I've been using these for 10 years and have yet to have a failure. Just enough extension to allow easy filling and pressure checks.
