Beautiful! It looks perfectly ready to help you enjoy your travels.

I have one curiosity question. What did Phoenix use as a latching system on the large kitchen drawers?

Thanks Gail and Holly.  As for the drawer latch, the drawers each have a small latching mechanism in the middle that when the drawer is closed it slides into what looks like two little rollers that catch the wide part and hold it at the narrow end.  That was probably a really bad description.  Its the same mechanism that is on the drawers under the wardrobe closet.  So far I haven't had anything pop open, and being a newb-driver of this thing, I have certainly hit some good bumps and had some good wobbles!

I see the factory did the 3 drawer galley that I originated here: http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,1751.0.html
I wonder if you are pioneering it for them because I will tell you right now that their method for holding your drawers shut will NOT, and I mean ABSOLUTELTY NOT keep the drawers closed.  When conditions are right, they will pop open and smash through the built-in drawer glide stops and end up on the floor.  I tried a number of experiments from those roller closures you mentioned, to a very strong 5 double magnet per drawer method.  Nothing short of a true latch will keep the drawers closed when conditions are worst.  I thought I had it licked with 5 double magnets per drawer, until we were well into our trip in Glacier NP, taking a jolting hair-pin turn to the right.  The extreme jolt and centrifugal force opened the drawers fast as bullets and they all ended up on the floor.  The first time it happened, only the top drawer opened and held.  The second time in another location, all 3 drawers ended up on the floor with the drawer glides broken.  We finished the trip with dinette cushions wedged in place to prevent it again.  What a big pain.  Fortunately we were doing that only the last week of our 4 week trip.

I advise you do this, a very cheap and simple non-intrusive insurance policy.

Buy child safety latches for those three drawers, the kind that allow you to open the drawer a couple inches for you to push the latch aside to open the drawer to it's fullest.  Even if you don't install them, have them in a tool box in the rig so you could install them during a trip.  Hopefully when it happens the first time (and it will happen) your built-in glide stops won't break on you, avoiding ball bearings all over the floor.

Maybe our problem was putting to much heavy stuff as seen in that post of mine, but that was our goal to begin with, placing all kitchen things in the kitchen.

I see in your picture, the factory was able to place that heater vent inside the kick board below the bottom drawer.  That is great.  Hopefully they will apply that to all galley cabinets in the future.

Ron

Woooo, thanks for the warning, Ron (and thanks for the original drawer idea to begin with!).  That sounds like a horrible mess!  I will follow through on the child safety locks and someday hopeful get them installed.  Meanwhile  I will drive carefully (as if I don't anyhow hahaha) and will watch the drawers' load.

WOW ... very nice. I love the interior colors. I did notice the kitchen cabinets have Dittmer drawers, they look great.  I'm happy to know that Phoenix will allow customer input when designing their MH.

I tried several latches on the drawers and so far nothing to keep them from rolling out, except for the rubber bands my wife placed over the knobs. They are strong industrial rubber bands and they seem to match the wood, and they haven been successful for three years now.

My 2350 is getting up there mileage wise ... Maybe a 2450 is in my future.... Grin

Best of Luck with yours

Thanks for posting the pictures.  Everything looks great, Carol.  You made some smart choices.  Hope the bed isn't too high for doggie.
