It's been awhile.  Let's do another photo contest of your units on location somewhere. We will have two categories, pre-2012 and post-2012.  Your photos may be used on our website, or advertising, so keep that in mind when submitting them to me. I have to figure out the prize, but we'll do some Phoenix Cruiser swag, and maybe a nice professionally printed, framed print of your photograph if you win. 

Send entries to

My wife and I are planning to purchase the PC 2450 and were wondering if there is any PC's in the area. We did get to the Hershey show but would like to see it again if possible. ThankYou Cheers

Glenncc--Sorry to be thickheaded, but do you mean "follow" as in literally?  Like in a caravan?  or follow someone's blog or Facebook postings?

Having owned a Sprinter (not a PC) I would be very hesitant about pulling a vehicle that weighs 3500 lbs. I realize you see Sprinters going up the road pulling  vehicles but I just never felt comfortable enough to hook anything but perhaps a Smart car to the vehicle. IMO Sprinters are great for the designed GVW but to start hooking things up behind I think you are asking for mechanical problems and safety issues.   best of luck.

We full time in our 2552 all winter in Mexico. We have been doing a Mexico blog for the past 6 years.
We also have a website where we show all our travels.

We are on our second Phoenix Cruiser and our 3rd motorhome.

We have put a lot of mileage on all of them.

Theoretically as long as it is the octane it is designed for, using a higher octane would actually lower your mpg.

Brand has no effect, all comes out of a limited number of refineries. I see all the brands using the same refinery.

What has the biggest effect is % of alcohol they put in the fuel. If you can get 100% gasoline you will improve your mpg by as much as 10%.

Welcome Back!  You have been through so much.  I hope your body is taking well to the changes.  

About the spare tire...
If the tire has always been stored in the compartment (never in service), I would "consider" extending it's usefulness beyond the 10 year period providing it still looks like brand new with no cracking or other visual concerns.  It is a spare tire after-all.  I would dedicate it for emergencies, not for regular use.

FWIW, As you might recall, our rig is stored indoors (heated garage) which has me is a unique situation.  Our 2007 E350 chassis was manufactured in April 2007 and still has all the original tires.  As of yet I have not had any of the tires off the vehicle.  I hope I can loosen the lug nuts when it's time.  I do carry a long breaker bar to slip over the tire iron for a road side emergency.  The rig has 24,000 miles now and the side walls still look new and strangely the tires still smell new as does the inside of the rig.  The tire thread all looks great with exception to some checking on the front tires from Great Plains cross-wind driving.  My first rig with a decent suspension suffered the same phenomenon so I am not concerned about it because it still has excellent contact to the pavement.  I don't plan on replacing the tires anytime soon.  I will evaluate at the 10 year mark but hope to stretch beyond.

Unfortunately, my demanding job and life mishaps get in the way of getting away.  This year 3 weeks ago, the day before we were to leave for the north-east, a bad storm ripped our large shade tree apart, throwing it 30 feet across our deck, messing up some railings and taking some deck furniture with it.  It could have been so much worse.  It has been very disappointing to change from 2 weeks east to Acadia ME, to 4 nights in Galena, IL.  My point is that the rig sits in moth balls way too much for me to consider new tires.  I wish I could talk about replacement tires.  That would mean we are using up our rig.

Sparky, You bring up a very good topic.  Does the brand and octane of gas influence fuel economy?  I have an opinion, but will wait a bit before sharing it.

Good topic,,, so of course have to add my 2cents haha

    First,,, I try and maintain the Beast to good standards,, do not worry to much unless the MPG goes crazy,,    Usually in the 9..... range,,, do know that wind is big booger also

   Question,, especially for some of you guys that do tons of records.   

    Most of us buy the cheapest gas we can find,,, I am a big Flying J fan..... I do know that the cheaper brands of gas do not have the same additives/detergents in them from the more expensive brands,, Shell/Texaco  etc,,,,,   I do a fill up about every 4/5 time with better brand gas or add some additives to the tank......... could buying the cheaper gas make a difference.???      Since it would be cheaper to buy the additives over 10 to 15 cents a gallon,,,, just curious
