Hi John,

Happy Thanksgiving to you and all the rest of the PC family!

Back in 2007, we went from a tiny 1983 Toyota Mirage to the 2350.  Eight years so far and it is a constant reminder we made the right choice.

Like Paul, we tow for increased mobility.  Our tow is a 2006 Jeep Liberty.  If we were full timing like you plan, I would think towing another vehicle would help with your full-time needs.  As long as your tow and stuff inside it doesn't exceed 5000 pounds, it becomes a multi-functional tow.  It gets you around where you are staying using much less fuel, and you can store stuff in it too.

Some might say, if you are going to tow another vehicle, why not buy a bigger motor home to live in full time.  That is another consideration.  But the 2350 with a tow vehicle is easy to get around in our national parks, monuments and the kind without issues.

This is something I always imagined for someone full timing alone and determined not to tow anything.  Consider special ordering a 2100 with the dinette changed to a day bed with made-for-day bed back rest cushions for day comfort.  Toss the cushions into the cab area for bedtime.  This way you have a couch and a permanent bed all in the same space.  The factory can make the day bed structure to utilize the space underneath it to improve the storage there with improved inside and outside access.  Make sure to request a memory foam mattress for it.  Also have the factory install cabinets instead of the couch, maybe with a writing desk for a place to sit at, maybe mount the TV on that wall, surely an area for additional storage.  You can be creative.  If the window on that wall is in the way, just have the factory delete, shift, or install a smaller one.  The factory is so good about such modifications without gouging you over such changes.

Here is the 2100 floor plan, shown with the optional slide out.  If floor space means nothing to you, get the no-slide for a clean wall to work with for the custom cabinetry and such.  If storage was king, just make that wardrobe cabinet across the entire wall, then shelve some of the inside with cubies or whatever.  Mix it up to meet your storage needs.  If you plan to carry "heavy", maybe consider the E450 chassis instead of the E350.

Just tossing out ideas that are inside this head of mine.

I can't help you because I live half a country away from you!  But, I can tell you this:   we moved from a Roadtrek 210P to a PC 2350 and love the extra room. 

We feel like we are in a suite compared to a small room.   We do miss our RT for maneuverability and parking.  We have to tow to have a run around vehicle.  We find the 2350 great for the two of us for extended trips, but miss the Roadtrek for day trips.  If you are going to full time, some do it in Roadtreks but the 2350 would be perfect for someone that doesn't mind a smaller rig and all its benefits.   Personally, if we didn't need all the junk for boondocking and extended stays we would take a close look at the 2100 PC.  It looks like a Roadtrek on steroids.

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)
