Could you post the link to the Super Springs you have?  I am not certain we could utilize them for our rig might not clear the garage door afterward, but still am curious.

We have now owned the 2350 for a little over a year and have made several trips in it, two were over 1500 miles round trip.  Occasionally, someone on this forum will report spoting another PC.  Since we seldom see other PCs, I ask this question:  does anyone have any idea how many PCs are out there?  Has PC ever released to the public their production unit numbers?   It is so seldom we spot a fellow traveler in a Phoenix Cruiser, I just wonder about these numbers.

The back end of our 2351 was an inch or so lower than the front end until I installed super spring leaf springs. Now the back end is a bit higher than the front end and the ride is noticeably smoother. Also the coach looks better with the rear end raised.
 We had removed the air bags on our previous coach (Born Free 24rb) and replaced them with super springs to help with the jarring over bumps in the road.

We have the 2100 and did many of the after market corrections--air bags on rear axle, heavy duty shocks, sway bars, etc. and it greatly improved the handling and tail drag (due to rear water tank and holding tanks). Even if we couldn't improve the handling, with the shorter length we can travel many roads and park in many places that larger rigs cannot. For us, the trade off is worth it.

We have the 2100 and struggled with that. Covers for that length RV were not wide enough so went with the smallest we could that would fit. Our first cover was too big in length and height.  Took a lot of creative nipping and tucking and still it drug on the ground and froze in snow melt (at 9,200 in the Rockies) doing damage when we wanted it out in April. We were also concerned about potential damage from rubbing in the high winds. That did not happen and we were able to mend the damage and use it a few more winters. This fall (2014) we purchased one for a 22 foot travel trailer from Camping World ($296 total). Seems very well made and fits like a glove with the use of one additional tie above the windshield/below the bull nose and we were good to go. Problem with a stock motorhome cover on a PC is our units are narrower and shorter in height than most motorhomes. Whereas the travel trailer is closer to our height and width. Won't know the whole story until we go to remove the cover but at this moment am very happy.

We will be staying at Flory's campground in Ronks, Pa for the Thanksgiving weekend and look forward to visiting September Farms for lunch on Friday and hopefully seeing cheese being made.  Smile

We just traded up from a 2100 to a 2552.  Ride and handling of the 2552 is vastly superior.  The only driving adjustment has been wider turns, I just check the side mirrors on turns and am able to stay between the lines with no problem.  Towing a midsize car on a dolly was no problem either, normally I do not tow.   Drive one, I think you will be a believer.  2travel
I believe you.

The 2100 has the worst wheel base to length ratio and has the fresh water tank over the rear bumper too, so it is going to handle the worst of all models.  With that said, something can be done about it through aftermarket suspension upgrades like we did with our 2007 2350.  Model 2350 is not as extreme as the 2100 but still needs a little least ours did back in 2007.  The current E350/E450 chassis 2008-2014 is better.

Call Phoenix.  They may have a source for a custom-fit cover.  Custom covers fit right to prevent wind damage to the RV's finish from flapping cover material.  Water runs off better, and some even have a zippered opening for the main entry door.  That allows you to get inside with the cover otherwise undisturbed.

This past weekend in preparation for our next trip I  extended the slide to do some lubricating  and noticed the metal strip on the bottom of the coach opening where it meets the bottom of the slide had a fair amount of rust on it.
Should clean up with a light sanding and some touch up paint when and if we find warmer weather
