The SE Area FMCA rally in Brooksville, FL starts tomorrow.  So far there are  three PCs seen there. One from Pennsylvania, grey paint, two slides. One from the local area, one slide, grey full body paint. Both on the west runway. And my 2910 sitting opposite seminar D and the food court.  No PCs on display this year because Stuart sold the show models before the show.

One more came in today at noon.  At a distance it looked identical to my coach. I was busy performing so I did not see where they parked him.

It is good to read that PCs are a hot seller at the shows this year.  I hope their momentum continues.

I always thought PC-USA should offer these options to boost sales.

1) 2100 and 2350 with E350 chassis, offer as an option, the smaller 5.4L-V8 to save $1185 MSRP and for better fuel economy.  The smallest PC models really don't need the 6.8L-V10.  I tow a 4300 pound Jeep with my 2350 with V10 and I think the smaller V8 would still work for me....surely no issue if I never tow.

2) For all PC models on E350/E450, offer a seamless class-C cab-over bunk option.  It doesn't have to be monster sized.  It could utilize all current connections to the B+ cap so it is only one differnet primary component, making it cheap for the company, and affordable for families who would then find PCs much more practical.  Maybe even some retired couples would prefer it for extra bulk storage.

I think a bad thing is this ... if you look at an RV trader and try to enter in Phoenix Cruiser it does not exist. When we sold our first 2350 I had to put in "Class B" on RV trader and then it showed up but if I put in Phoenix anything, nothing happened.
We had to take our new unit in to our local RV repair station and they tried to looked up Phoenix Cruiser, nothing came up on their computers .... although that could be a good thing, that they are so excellent and have no problems so they don't pop up .... but any site I go on or in the RV magazines and in our case have the class B or even under B plus .... Phoenix Cruiser doesn't exist under the list of RV's. That is sad becuase it is an execellent coach and it is not getting exposed on any of the large sites  Cry  under any class that I could see.

I have spent 2007 thru 2011 spreading the news about the Phoenix Cruiser on www.rv.net and I think I did good getting the word out.  Since, I let more recent owners carry that torch for the most part.  But I do back them up with historical reliability & customer service.

Like you say Carol, Phoenix Cruisers seem to have fallen into the "B" national database, though it is surely a "C" constructed vehicle.

Building a class B, motor home manufactures start with this.


Builing a class B+ or C, they start with this, most often a van-based, but sometimes pickup-truck based.
They are delivered to the RV companies without a rear wall, seats, or outside mirrors.
The rear wall gets a thick plastic shrink wrapping to provide temporary protection for the interior.

I wish there was the right pic that showed the delivered RV chassis.
Here is the chassis setup for a cargo truck, but it has mirrors and seats.
The RV chassis has a disposable cafeteria seat that gets tossed. It is used for lot-driving only.


Going further, the class-A gets built on one of these.
Engine up front (most often gasoline powered)

Engine in back (diesel pusher used for larger & high end class-As)


And Super-Cs start with these types when people want a big "C" with a diesel engine.
Of coarse the Sprinter is the choice diesel  for the little fellows.
