And on the driver's side instead of the other twin bed we had them build a 2 person dinette that does double duty as a desk.

We also added the power bed option offered on the 2552, but had them install only one side on the passenger side.  We also asked them to adjust it so that when extended it results in a 54 x 75 'full' size bed.  Retracted there is the same amount of aisle space on a regular 2552.  When the bed is extended there is enough room, barely, to walk between the bed and dinette to get to the bathroom.  It is just a bit too tight and if doing it again I would consider making the bed 4" smaller.  But it is working for us.  For larger people probably not.

We finally made it home and though I wanted to post this on the road pushing 500 miles per day left me just too tired to do it.  So here is the customization list for our new 2017 2552.

In addition to the regular options offered by Phoenix we also had them add:
- 50 amp service
- two extra exterior lights, one on the back and one above the service bay on the drivers side
- 2x 6 volt AGM batteries
- a Norcold 12 volt compressor refrigerator instead of the lp gas / 120 volt one that is standard
- a Trimetric battery monitor
- a Progressive Industries EMS or 'surge protector'
- 2x 150 watt solar panels
- a 2,000 pure sine wave inverter
- satellite receiver on the roof
- replace the mirror with the backup camera monitor
- Safe-T-Plus steering stabilizer
- sofa in the slide out instead of a dinette
- add support in rear bay for additional hooks

I have not used my machine since we got the 2551 but, like Catsaplenty, l'd probably use the sofa.  I think the bed would be too high.  With the slide open, I 'm sure there would be enough room to quilt on the table.  I travel with my Singer 221 Featherweight  which I absolutely love.  In our former MH  the stovetop with a cutting mat was a good height  and the microwave light was helpful, although  not  very
 bright for trimming.  I try to do most of my cutting  at home.  An extension cord to the bed plug would work best.  I think I'm going to make an ironing board cover for the small wooden tray table.  I can't think of anyplace to set up my small ironing board- the bed doesn't seem very safe.  Let me know how things work out for you.  I'm kinda in a holding pattern waiting for my muse to come back.......

Gas taxes go to the roads, there just isn't enough taxes to maintain the roads.

I travel with my Janome 4120 QDC.  It fits nicely in the closet.  I set up the table in the  living room.  The bed is a little to high to reach the foot pedal comfortably.  Besides the cat are easily distracted from helping me quilt with the window.  Soooooo many birds to dream about catching

On our 2910T it is under the unit about a third of the way back on the drivers side. Inside the rail frame, I don't remember it being enclosed.  JAS

If you take your sewing machines with you in your PC, do you set up to sew in the bed room or in the living area? Also, do you make any mods in your PC to accommodate the machine?
