Hello everyone,

We just ordered a 2350 4x4 450 a couple months ago. We live in Oregon, my wife is retired, I'm still at it for awhile.
We enjoy back country camping, have owned several trailers over the years, still own at least 5 tents from wall tents to bivey sacks. Have camped off mountain bikes pulling trailers to owning a pack string of llamas. This is our first Motorhome. We spent at least a year looking for an ideal rig, and didn't find one! We will be making some major modifications to our 2350 once we get it.
I appreciate the forum and all it has to offer!

Doug
Welcome Doug!

If you did not catch this one.....The factory does a lot of special requests, and done so affordably.  So if you have a lot of things to change, the factory may be able to take care of some of your list, done at the ideal time during the construction process.

We also bought a 2017 - 2351 4 X 4 and had many modifications done at he factory for minimal cost.  I second the suggestion that it would be cost effective and easier to have modifications done when built.
Everyone was great to work with but make sure you have any changes in writing and any parts you have to supply shipped to the factory in a timely manner. 

Enjoy the process,
Dave

Carol, Ron, and Dave,
Thanks for the suggestions.
We are having the factory do some changes, mostly deletes, and some adds that they are comfortable doing.
When I said major modifications I'm talking about getting a 60" wide(queen size) bed basically where the current one is now,
adding more batteries, and external storage. Thats probably talk for another part of this forum.
Good to meet you,
Doug

  My name is Esther Newton, I live in Ann Arbor, Michigan for seven months of the year and North Fort Myers, FL for the winter. I have been RVing for about 15 years now and have had a variety of rigs, starting with a small Airstream trailer, going up to a 35 ft. class A, and back down again as my needs changed.  Last month I bought a PC, 2350 because a friend of mine (also on the forum) had bought one of the larger models and loved it.  She knows more about how things work than I do, and when I said I was thinking of getting a different small B+ she said no, get the PC.  It so happened that the dealer closest to my Florida home had one in stock.  I previously owned a diesel Via on a sprinter chassis that was the same length as the 2350, and loved many things about it but not having to go the Mercedes dealers (if they would service it), and the engine was finicky, always sending warning lights that were hard to interpret and potentially scary.  I've had several Ford 350 chassis, and they were reliable and simple, so I was glad to go back to that.

  Have only used the PC so far to drive up from Florida to Michigan, but so far so good (but see below).  My main use now is weekends, I have two miniature poodles that I compete with in the sport of dog agility, and I hate staying at motels at the show sites.  But my partner and I will be taking a short vacation to northern Michigan in July and somehow squeezing a large standard poodle in too. Wish us luck. That will be the shake down cruise.  After that I'll be going to Elkhart to get the macerator fixed -- for some reason it is not working.

Welcome.

Call the factory about the macerated, they might be able to tell you what needs fixing. It might be something simple that you can do to fix it.

 It is always fun to see the factory.

Welcome Esther,

We live in Highland, MI not far from you.  We owned a 2350 and now a 2551.  You made a good choice going with a PC.  If we can help you with anything please do not hesitate to ask.

We camp a lot up North so maybe we'll see you on the road.  We camp at Fort Myers Beach during March and North Fort Myers during Jan and Feb.
