After spending many nights in our 2552 this summer we missed having a convenient place to set a cup of coffee or TV remote along with need to store frequently used items so looked into using the space behind the driver's seat.  Previously when we ordered the PC we asked Kermit to install a cabinet similar to what Gradygal/George installed in their 2910.,1131.msg8449.html#msg8449

Kermit did not want to do the installation but I convinced him to supply the parts for me to install along with a piece of Corian to match the kitchen cabinet top.  Since we wanted a place to set items while stationary we took the parts provided and made them into a table and storage cabinet as shown in the photos below.

I wanted to post this in case others have similar desires for an end table that this might inspire their creativity.

Welcome Lee and Luanne!  I remember my PC stalking days....exiting times.  We love our 2552 and are sure you'll love yours as well!  The hard part is just beginning for you....the excruciating wait until your rig is delivered!

I don't know about you guys, but I get a lot of dead bugs on my wings when traveling. I don't need to look out a window covered in dead bugs. I would think a small rock throw up might bounce off a thick window shield or maybe put a hole in it would break the thinner side window in a wing.
Just my thoughts.

My Euro chair is started to flake also. I haven't decided when and what I will do about it yet.
Maybe we can get the FEDS to issue a recall on this ultra leather.  rolling on the floor

My driver seat is peeling too. Phoenix  gave me the name of the company who supplies the seating.  I have tried calling and emailing a number of times and left messages.  They will not ever acknowledge the call.

Hi Everyone,

During our recent trip out to New England, we stayed a number of nights at Walmarts.  We always try to show our appreciation by buying something.  At a Walmart in Gorham, NH, the store had an end-of-season clearance on their selection of automotive pop-open sun shades.  At only $2 per set, I bought the Super Jumbo plain silver/black ones that cover the E350/E450 wind shield perfectly.  I gambled and also bought the "Universal" size which happens to work fairly well on the van door windows.  I was impressed enough to go back inside the store and buy 2 more sets of each size.  I am giving a set of each size as a Christmas present to my brother for his E350 Starflyte.  The other set is a backup for myself.

Yesterday we were home at our local Walmart near Chicago and I see they too are clearing the same pop-open sun shades for $2 per set.

These cheap pop-open sun shades are nice for quick privacy that also does a decent job at blocking the heat of the sun.  They store nicely together in either of our driver & passenger backrest pockets.  We have been using the Super Jumbo set for our PC wind shield for many years now but it is time to retire them.

I know there are better products available, but for $4 and easy storage, and my experience with them, I thought it was worth sharing this with you all.

These are the ones for $2 per set on clearance at Walmart.  Pictured are the Super Jumbo size for the windshield.  On the back of the package, it specifically states that it fits the E-series van.  The ones for the van doors is the smaller size called Universal.  Walmart seems to sell just the two sizes so you can't get it wrong.

I agree with you.  That TransVan transition wall looks like a paint job, not a window.  Interesting that a PC-2100 is not all that much different with regards to the exterior foot print.  But inside, the PC is so much more practical.

I would imagine Phoenix could accommodate a window as the picture in the 2007 brochure shows, for 2017 models 2350, 2351, and 2552.  This assuming their window supplier has them available.

On a older used PC being sold on the internet some time ago with a window there, it was a fixed window.  It did not open.  It would be nice if the window could be opened in the same manner the others do (top-hinged) for better air circulation while parked.  This way you could keep the entry door closed for privacy, security, and not to involve the main awning on a rainy day.

I agree with both of your comments on wiring issues on driver's side, a need for window coverings, a need to do something with the existing privacy curtains, and a need for aesthetic  symmetry.  And, PC may or may not have info re. feasibility of altering structure by relocating and/or adding bracing.  The sidewall window area shown for that 2007 looks a little wider than a 2350, but I could be mistaken.  If there is less room, even a narrow, non-opening window might work, assuming PC could confirm additional bracing needed so it wouldn't affect structural integrity of the wall.

Of course, if no additional windows were feasible, I'd leave it alone.

In the '90's someone else at the office had a TransVan from the '70's, and I think that's where I recalled seeing wingwall windows on Class Cs. Funny thing, though: Apparently, that company couldn't make them work and they're just cosmetic fluorishes, as interior photos show no openings:
