I am thankful that Phoenix offers their slide outs as "options" as their floor plans allow.  This way each PC-ordered owner gets what he wants, and does not get what he doesn't want.  Unfortunately for the rare few, second thoughts creep in after they have owned their PC a while.  I could say that concerning a few other choices we made 10 years ago with our PC.  Fortunately I was able to correct and/or update them myself along the way.  A few remain for good like the crank-up Winegard antenna and one too many roof vents.  For us with our needs and desires, we would be better in the long run without those two roof-intrusive features.

Airstreams are to rounded to put a slide into if they wanted to. They even need a special awning arm that is bent to fit the sides.  sad
They could if they really wanted too but no one would buy it. Putting slides on some vehicles is just ridiculous. (see below)

LazyDaze are know for being stuck in the 1950's. Try getting them to customize their motorhome, not going to happen.  
Maybe they are, in some circles, but many people love their products and the resale value is the best in the class C industry. Last I looked solar was standard and you could get in-notion satellite as an option. I'd like to see that in the 1950s

Some folks just won't sign on to be Guinea pigs for a failure prone experiment for the sake of "progress"

My reasons for what I do with my money are just as sound as anyones.

Please lets not tiurn this thread into a spitting match and emoticon fest" over the age-old slide vs no slide argument. Fortunately, with PC we can all have it our own way without taking something from the next guy.

Our build took 3 months. We were told 3-3 1/2 months. Everything went smoothly. Kyle sent us photos weekly (you have to request weekly) and replied to any questions we had promptly.
We had one issue that required a return trip to PC the next morning, but were out of there in an hour and heading home. Thank you to Bob.  Everyone in the shop was very helpful and even stopped to help with something as they were heading home. FYI the shopstarts at 5 am and quit for the day between 12 and 1.

To SandK. Too bad we didn't know you were looking as we came home across western Maryland on I-68 and Rt 220 in south PA. We will be headed to the rally in Sisters, OR towards the end of next week and are always looking for a route around and far away from Chicago.

The PC leak issue is a little unsettling to a prospective buyer.

I was very concerned about the leaking slide issue, as well as the mechanical failure rate on the Lippert-Schwintek side drive system. So much so that I ordered my new 2552 without the slide.

In my case my previous motorhome did not have a slide so I wont miss it on this one.  Many people today feel that they would not be without a slide, but some very well respected RV vendors still do not offer slideouts and they sell more RVs than they can deliver. Examples, LazyDaze Class C and Airstream trailers.



It seems that is because LazyDaze and Airstream want their products to outlast their multiple owners.....and their products do.....and I want our PC to last that long for us...like 35 years, hence no slide out.

Rons words are always good. He can get us all on the right track in short order. Tomorrow the cabinet work behind the potty gets put back in then we are ready to look at a quick trip to Cocoa and a big hello to some old old friends... When you are already old your friends probably are too.. And when the  plumbing works  you are headed in the right direction.
thanks to all for comments and advice.  It is such a help. And contributes to the Happy Camper state of mind.  Luv to all, Patricia, Jim & Miss Elle

We were hoping you were located in the southwest PA and would be kind enough to let us take a peek at your RV. Oh Well.

Thanks,
