We got one like that from Bed Bath Beyond and it fits perfectly between the driver and passenger seats in the cab.  Gives us an area to put things on when we are in camp and very easy to move and stow when we are on the road.

We carry this in our 2350  instead of the heavy pedestal table. It's big enough for 2 people, and folds flat for storage behind  the barrel chair. When we are stationary but not dining we just turn it around so that it covers the barrel chair and use it as  extra counter space. It's very light and convenient  to take  outside too (note to Messrs. Byrnes &  Cooper).

The XL model is a QVC exclusive and just recently became available again after a long  absence. It's not the same as the flimsy  smaller tablemate model that's  sold in stores and on  other websites.  Grab one before they are all  gone again ThumbsUp

OK, I understand.  Actually Tualatin is just down the hill a bit from us, and over the river.  Guess I was looking for exciting stories of RV travel in Hawaii.  Smile

Hi Bev with a 2012 PC-2350,

Our 2007 PC-2350 had serious handling issues right from day-one.  We were able to resolve them that first year by getting the following work done.

- Replace the front stock/weak stabilizer bar with a Roadmaster heavy duty stabilizer bar.
- Install a rear Roadmaster heavy duty stabilizer bar.  The 2007 and older E350s had no stock rear bar at all.
- Replace the stock shocks with Koni-RV adjustable set to maximum.  I recommend the Koni-FSD today which were not available back in 2007.  Heavy duty Bilstein shocks are not a bad choice either.
- Install a Henderson rear trac bar, a non-stock add-on to eliminate side-to-side rear end motion.
- With all the work done and loaded up for a trip, we got the front end aligned, which was off by so much that the front end required offset bushings to make it right.

These are off-set bushings which are part of the front suspension.  The E350 look similar to this example.



With everything done, the rig handles extremely well, a really huge difference compared to prior.  We have around 36,000 miles on the rig today, with the front tires having scalloping, getting worse as more miles are driven.  Scalloping on the front tires is caused from the front end going up/down a lot, and our PC with Koni-RV adjustable shocks set to the heavy-duty setting, still likes to go up/down on the open road.  I believe it's caused by the uneven load distribution, too much weight behind the rear axle, not enough weight up front, a byproduct for model 2350.  Our older 2350 is worse yet because the fresh water tank is in the worst possible place for weight distribution, right against the rear wall.  The uneven tire wear has gotten bad enough today that it is causing a cyclic vibration.  The real solution is to replace the front tires and maybe install heavier duty front shocks, but the shocks we have are already heavy duty.  My next experiment is to swap the front tires with each other to reverse-scallop them which will likely be a bad idea.  But just maybe it will improve the situation like it did with our first motor home on a Toyota chassis.

This is what scalloped tires look like.  I don't have a picture of our front tires.  Ours have plenty of thread remaining, but similar looking uneven thread-wear.

Dick,

You are 6'-2"?  Have you walked through any PC yet?  Have you stood in the shower of the PC you are considering?  I ask because I have a tall friend and he can't stand up in our PC,  I think he is 6'-2", maybe 6'-3".

I am 5'-11".  With my hiking shoes on and standing straight up, I feel the a/c unit brush the hair on top of my head.  I am good with the shower as well.

Owners group scoreboard: (2) for Slide, (2) for no slide.
Thanks Larry, I knew about the raise floor in the slide but thought that the table would be standard height when measured from the higher slide floor. Interesting.
jatrax, I am 6'-2" so the 80" bed and lengthened dinette are crucial for me. We are not interested in the sleeper dinette and have opted for the dinette from the 3100 which has a more ergonomic fit and contoured leather cushions. Being able to push the no slide dinette more forward we are able to fit the large dinette w/o pantry, the refrigerator and an 80" bed along the driver's side wall. This also negates the need to stretch the truck frame an additional 6". One extra long bed is fine since I am the only one who requires the length. It also saves us the cost of stretching the frame. So I think we have found a win/win solution.
I will search the for the 2552 thread, thanks for the tip.

Aloha jatrax... actually the PC is in Oregon.  I have a nice secure, fully enclosed storage unit there, and chose that place in Tualatin mostly for the facility (nice, was new in 2016, very secure, amenities like dump station, power washer, hi pressure air compressor, etc.) and the location, as i can fly easily between HI and Portland, and then it's just a 30 minute shuttle ride between the airport and my storage site.

I'm wondering if PC plans to resume posting Show notices in the BLOG?  The last one was almost two years ago.

Sorry your friends missed the opportunity to view the 2552 - but actually - they dodged the bullet. I was relieved to hear they were seasoned RV'ers because they would have looked at it with educated eyes. If they get up to this area again, we would be happy to show them our 2551. We are only a few miles away from the dealer they visited.

Rv camping, I have 2351 slide dinette.  I did not want a slide but buying used had to take the deal when presented itself.  One thing that hasn't been mentioned is the elevated floor for the slide floor under the dinette,  it causes ones knees/legs to be elevated four to five inches while seated at the dinette.  With no slide your feet would be on the floor in addition to additional width/length of the dinette as Ron mentioned for additional bed and/ or comfort level.  Good luck.

Larry
