A very accurate vision.  Smile

Our slideless has half that space and it tapers to near zero with the driver seat reclined.  We keep an elongated Rubbermaid type of a container there for things we want quick access to from the front seats.

gradygal benefitted from getting a second chance.  I think everyone here can say.... "I wished I asked the factory to do this for me".  Hopefully it's a short list with easy remedies.

Every time I finish the last on my list, you good people with your great ideas has me starting a new list.  Smile  Our 2350 has a similar closet just to the right of the microwave.  I wonder if my wife would prefer that to be her pantry instead of the over-the-dinette cabinets.  I will have to mention this one to her.  I did add a fixed shelf in our shirt closet.

The trend seems to be that models 2100, 2350, and 2400 require offset bushings.  Not the 2551 on up.  The short wheel base with a long rear overhang is most influential.  The front end rises a bit which then requires those bushings for a proper alignment.

Bob, Good job on the pics and the info... once again,,, people ask ,,,,people respond,,, lets you make a informed decision,, should I buy or stick with what I have this should be helpful to all.  That's why I love reading this forum and asking questions and hopefully getting some responses.  David Sparks
Ditto here!

I am not yet sure we will buy them, but if we buy anything, it will be Weather Tech.  The factory is in Bowlingbrook IL, maybe 40 miles away.  They advertise Made Here In The Chicago Area, so I'd surely support a good product made in the USA.

5 years back I bought OEM carpeted floor mats and they are holding up nicely so far.  Admittedly our dirt is mostly in the tow vehicle where I have Weather Tech tray-style mats.  I bought the carpetted mats for our PC for comfortable stocking foot driving.

Thanks bobander, Very much!

They fit perfectly.

I had it in my head they were some kind of tray style mats, but surely can't be given there are no walls to follow upward.

Do they stay in place good?  Or do they move around a lot?

I realize that the various PC models have different alignment issues....some maybe with little to none.  But our PC2350 required offset bushings to get the alignment done right.  This involves some disassembly/reassembly.  It's more than considered typical.

Here is what offset bushings look like.  In the picture, the left gold one is slightly off center, the right silver is more extreme.  A "Good" truck alignment shop will know what to do if they cannot align the rig working with the stock suspension.  Such an alignment is not something a generic tire shop can do, and maybe not for some Ford dealers.  I fear some shops adjust it as far as they can then consider it done....good enough.

Thanks Kevin.

My son and I had a blast at our church.  We were 2 of 86 acoustical guitarists recruited to join the worship team this Fathers Day weekend.  The 7100 seat church was at capacity Saturday night, a bit shy at the 9:00am service, but over-flowing at the 11:30am service.  What an experience and what a blessing.

Dadfest 2013 was an event my son and I will be talking about for a very long time.

Here is a YouTube video of the opener at the Sunday 9:00am service.  John and I are both on this video, but are not recognizable.  We are next to each other, John is to left of center, I am to the right of center.  We are just behind the drummer.

We also played 4 worship songs, not shown on this particular video.  Playing them was Absolutely Awesome.

I would love to see pictures of the Weather Tech floorsmats, passenger and driver.  I wonder how they address the no-lip condition.  The E350/E450 does not have a floor pan bowl as do all other vehicles.

The chassis owners manual covers light application E150 vans through heavy duty E450 Dual Rear Wheel rigs.

I agree with you Bob.  By default, every motor home is considered abnormal/extreme opperating conditions, and therefore owners should follow the most frequent oil change interval recommendations.  This because motorhomes always carry a full load.

Large Floor Plan diagrams of every model, both with and without slide outs is essential for discussion on models and flavors of models.  The rest sounds good too.  I would think two sheets max.  First sheet with all floor plans which forces the party to bring them all.  The second sheet with main features listed and note-taking space.  I would keep it all black & white with no back ground, very generic for print friendly.

Do what you think is best Aimee and we'll work with it.   ThumbsUp

Having a Fantastic Fan in a rear bathroom is a great idea.  It will move much more air than the wimpy one typically installed.  Even with all windows closed up for security, air can be drawn in from the front dash area and move toward the rear.  Odors never get a chance to penetrate forward into the rest of the house.

And that is one less big hole in your roof.  One fan doing the job of two.  I like it.   ThumbsUp

I cannot recommend rotating tires at all on any 6 tire motor home.

But if you are determined, then I recommend swapping front tires with eachother, and rear pairs with eachother.  Never split pairs of rear tires and never switch inner tires with outer tires because their diameters have worn down to different dimensions.  If switched, the larger diameter tire will be weighted heavier, ripe for a blow-out.

It seems everyone is replacing tires because of age, not tire wear.  Let them wear as they do and let the load be distributed naturally even on them.  You'll be replacing them because of side wall cracks long before the threads are worn.

Motor homes are not cars.  Different rules apply.  That's the way I see it anyway.  Give me a "disagree" and lower my Helpful Rating if you must.

Yes Sparky, you are "Right-On" about water/waste management.  We practice the same as you and it works very well.  Given our 2350 grey tank is 23 gallons and the black tank is 35 gallons, it forces us to blend the tanks once between dumps which is very good practice anyways.  Lots of soapy dish water flooding into the black tank is good for tank maintenance.

Another possible kitty spot is under the driver side twin bed.
I figured having the litter box under a bed would be too close for comfort.

I thought the kitty liter would be best as far from the sleeping quarters as possible.  Having a Fantastic fan most forward or even directly above that Euro-chair area turned bird cage & litter might be effective.  With the right windows open, the fan could draw odors away from the living quarters and offer the top/front kitty loft some good fresh cool air ventilation.

Just throwing ideas out there.
