Hey all,

Happy Thanksgiving!

The 2350 has been my dream RV on paper. I have never seen one in real life. Ive only seen pictures on the internet. I really like the bed in the back. I have a Roadtrek Popular 200 year 2000. The Roadtrek is great, but I want to full time and I think that the 2350 would be perfect for me. The Roadtrek is simply too small, and I want a bigger bathroom, bigger refrigerator, and stand alone bed.

Im in the Los Angeles area. Can soneone show me their 2350? Or even the 2551 or 2552?

Don't feel bad.  I did route 12 on my motorcycle and when I got to the narrowest section, I did not look at anything but the white line either.  I didn't realize I could hold my breath for 20 minutes!  If that section was pretty, no way I knew it.

We have a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk with 8400 miles. About half being towed. Not a lick of trouble.

Wonderful report!  Thank you for taking the time to share this part of your trip.  I'm already looking forward to googling all that your wrote about to get more information.

We have not had any problems towing our 2015 trailhawk. In Seo/Oct we towed down to Myrtle Beach and back . Only issue I have is my milage has dropped to 7.2 mpg while towing. I am not sure why this has happened.

Not much being posted so I thought I'd post some stops we made on our first cross country trip from California.  We had a limited amount of time to make it to the east coast and back, so we missed out on tons o' stuff, but this was a particularly memorable portion of our trip (in June)

--- Wilson, NY (Daisy Barn Campground)  This was our first stop in New York traveling east.  Daisy Barn is a very small RV park located right on Lake Ontario.  It is a quiet place with beautiful grounds, large enclosed dog park, huge lawn area, gazebo and firepit right on the lake, great sunsets.  The small town of Wilson is very quaint with some nice restaurants.  We used this campground as a base for visiting Fort Niagara (built originally in 1678 where the lake and Niagara River meet, now has historical reenactments and is a living history site), Niagara Falls, Buffalo and Lockport (historic Erie Canal town with famous 'flight of five' locks)

--- Macedon, NY (Mid-Lakes Navigation Canal Boats)  We spent an amazing week on the Erie Canal driving and living in a very nice canal boat rented at Mid-Lakes.  These are like RV's on water, very well maintained, very easy to operate (7 mph max I think) and a totally unique experience.  We had no issue parking our rig at the marina and it was fine when we returned.  They provide a half hour instruction on operation of the boat, how to operate the radio, and how to go in and out of the locks (and how to have bridges raised for you). Many nice towns along the canal have parks/docks to tie up to and provide power/water free (or nominal fee). Dogs are allowed on some of the boats. Highly (really) recommended!

--- Watertown, NY (KOA 1000 Islands at Association Island)  Private island located on Lake Ontario once owned by GE for company retreats and later the YMCA for summer camp.  While it is a bit worn and could use updating, you can't beat the location with sites right on the lake (choose windward or leeward side of island)  Nearby towns have great restaurants and shops, but we stopped here to get restocked and ready for the Adirondacks.

--- Lake Placid, NY (Lake Placid / Whiteface Mt. KOA)  The drive through the Adirondacks was easy and beautiful.  We don't seek out KOA's to stay at but we don't necessarily avoid them, especially when they are highly rated, as this one is.  Beautiful heavily forested grounds and very well kept.  Close to Lake Placid, Olympic Village, Whiteface Mt., Ausable Chasm, Ausable River (fly fishing!) and not that far from Lake Champlain. Town of Lake Placid is very nice, quaint, great shops and restaurants.  Lots of wineries nearby as well.

--- White River Junction, VT (Quechee / Pine Valley KOA)  We took the ferry from Port Kent, NY to Burlington, VT across Lake Champlain.  Very easy, unusual (for us) experience.  Lots of nice comments about our PC from passengers and boat personnel, most of whom were surprised to see California license plates. Another well rated, nice KOA.  Very close to Woodstock, Killington, Connecticut River, many covered bridges, New Hampshire.  Don't miss Simon Pearce Glassworks and Restaurant (beautiful setting on river at waterfall, great glassblowing demos, superb meal) and the Quechee Gorge.  Nice antique shops and many beautiful diners closeby. Gotta love the fact that billboards are outlawed in VT.

--- Littleton, MA (Minuteman Campground)  Nice forested park near Harvard.  Well run, well kept, decent space, good amenities. Close enough to Boston, Salem, Gloucester to easily drive or take public transport.  Harvard Kennels and Vet Clinic nearby (great groomer and nice being able to drop off the puppies for an extended period while visiting the Boston area)

Glad to hear you have not had any issues Paul.  I have towed my Trailhawk perhaps 1000 miles with no issues but the last count on Jeep Cherokee Club forum and Jeep Garage forum was over 40 owners who have had violent wobbling episodes at low speeds.  I have owned 8 different Jeeps with very few problems.  I can not say I like my Trailhawk better than my wife's Grand Cherokee but I can not tow the GC behind (weight) the PC.   Ron G.

No problems with our 2014 Cherokee Trailhawk.   We have now towed it about 6000 miles or so and it has never had a problem.  Never been back to the dealer, but there are a couple of minor recalls that parts are now available to fix at the dealers and I will take it in between Thanksgiving and Christmas.   We bought this for my wife to drive and to tow behind our PC2350.   I have nothing to report but good results with this Jeep, which is the sixth one we have owned (Cherokees and Grand Cherokees over the years) and in many ways, this one is the best yet.

There is a fair amount of discussion on the Jeep Cherokee (2014,2015) forums about the "death wobble" at low speeds on Cherokees being towed four down.  Evidently the electric power steering system when activated  (engine running) places a static load on the front wheels and that prevents the wheels from going into a wobble, with the key off (when being towed) that pressure is not there and that allows the wheels to go wild especially when one goes over  tracks, etc not at a right angle to the roadway.   Jeep is supposedly working frantically to come up with a fix that may mean some kind of damper mechanism.   I have yet to have any such issues with my Cherokee (really have not towed that much)  and wanted to know if any PC owners have had this problem?  If you have you should log your a complaint ASAP with Jeep so they are even more compelled to come up with a solution.   Thanks, Ron G.

Sorry to just be posting.  I've been traveling and not visiting the forum.
I have a Vespa 200GT (about 325#) on the back of my 2350.  Dan's Hitch in Elkhart installed a hydraulic lift, so I can load/unload by myself.  They put in two extra hitch receivers.  After the installation, it rode lower in the back, so I had "spring leaves" added.  Now it's level and works great!  It's a great way to travel and not need to tow.
Hope I'm not too late to help!
