The bathroom in the 2350 is also very small.  My wife is 5 fee 4 and always said about that bathroom" there is not enough room to change your mind in there."
That is a very interesting way of putting it, and you make your point well.  Our 2350 bath's floor space isn't much to speak of.  Not in the shower and not out of the shower.  You have to pay close attention when turing around in it.  No fast movements or you'll hit something with a body part of one sort or another.

njheart and sister live 40 minutes from our house so they are coming to see our unit this week before their visit to PC-USA because the factory might not have a 2350 with or without a slideout to see.  They can determine for themselves if what we have is worth consideration along with seeing new units in Elkhardt.

10 minutes from downtown is great.  The best I could have helped with was 2 hours taking trains and cabs....not pretty.

glenncc,

You took oh so many words right out of my mouth, including your last comment.

Adding that for me personally and I think my wife would agree, I would have loved more room if we used our PC differently.  But it is just the two of us.  We don't stay for more than 4 nights in any one place as we "tour", not "plant".  Our time is typically spent out and about, sight-seeing and being adventurous with the tow vehicle and doing all day hiking.  In our on-the-move trip style, we sometimes park overnight in places where opening a slideout would be inappropriate or even unsafe.  You wouldn't want an adjacent vehicle hitting it.

If we were snow birds with extended stays like our uncle does down in Florida during the winter, living in the rig for a season at a time, any kind of extra room would surely be welcomed, from a longer model, to having that really nice corner shower many of you enjoy, and also a slide out or two.

njheart,  Read my private message to you.  I hope you and your sister are close enough to examine our rig.

Ron

njheart,

I sent you a private message.  I hope it works out for you to take me up on my offer.

Boy, you would think I could offer a suggestion here, but I have "Zero".  Everything I Know of is near 2 hours from Navy Pier.  Even I am 2 hours away.

thinking of downsizing in order to go more places without worrying about height clearance and road conditions. Any advice on length versus driveability?  Are the longer models more stable on the road?
For 5 years now, we have owned a 2007 model 2350 (23'-8" over-all length) and we tow a Jeep Liberty 4x4 because of our vacationing style.  We generally go to national parks & monuments where being nimble and taking primitive (a few very primitive) roads is part of the fun.  If we did not tow a 4x4 , we would miss some of the very attractions we came to see and experience.  We used to tow a little red sports car but that didn't handle the primitive roads well so we later changed to the 4x4.

Our 2350 with rear corner double bed, was selected to fit inside our 25' deep garage with 10' tall door opening.  Admittedly the sleeping arrangements are not ideal because of the bed's limited access, but we manage.  We really enjoy snuggling up together & sleeping together which makes getting in and out from the rear corner bed more tollerable.

Our 2007 E350 chassis had some notable handling issues when first purchased but nothing that aftermarket suspension upgrades couldn't resolve.  After that additional investment, the rig handles beautifully, towing or not.  The good news for you is that since 2008, the Ford chassis has gotten some suspension improvements by Ford so you may not have to invest as much in aftermarket upgrades, especially with the longer PC models made on the E450 chassis.  I think the 2100 and 2350 & maybe the 2400 are more suseptable to handling issues than the longer models.  But that is just my opinion, based on comments I've read from other owners of the various models.

I won't show those pictures to my wife or I will have one more project to handle.

I don't know any other RV Manufacturer who has 63 photos of their campers adventuring all over right on their home page!   ThumbsUp
That is really cool.

I stumbled on 10 more and sent via email #11 and #12.

For sure some are not worth consideration, but I leave it all up to you.

Glad you got them, 20 pics in all.  They are not cropped or edited in any way, sent at max-mega-pixel for you.

I got an email stating your email box was full.  I didn't know how many emails made it through.

I emailed you 10 numbered 1 thru 10 with under 10 meg/2 pics each.

Which email made it through?

Hi Aimee,

I sent you a bunch of pictures but not sure if they are good candidates for your intentions.  You choose or delete whatever you like.

Very nice for organizing lots of the little things.

I found the rear storage compartment ideal for this nice 2-person folding table  It's great to have as a primary table under the awning, or as a secondary table if you are able to move a campsite picnic table under the awning.  Either way, this table is great.  We like to place it next to the outside outlet, a nice place for the coffee pot, crock pot, radio, etc.


It has 3-position adjustable legs, this picture shows the low setting.
- Low is ideal for using with camping chairs
- Mid makes a nice extention of a picnic table
- Tall is nice for standing next to, also nice to keep kids and dogs away from things you don't want them to get at.


Here is the tall setting.


We bought ours 4 years ago at a Costco but not sure if they still sell the same model with adjustable legs.  I have recently seen a non-adjustable leg model at Walmart.

Thanks for sharing ragoodsp.  I gave you a "Helpful".  It's nice to have this data available on the forum.

I am sure that one day I will eventually need to refer back to this post.  My old rig had the same thing happen.  Once it started, it all came down within a year looking like bed curtians.  Key is catching it early before it takes off.
