2350 Rear Storage
« on: May 11, 2012, 05:53:09 pm »
Going to pickup our new 2350 hopefully around the 1st of June!!!  Can't wait!  :)

Question for ya 2350 people... What exactly is the dimensions of the "Right Rear" storage?  We just bought some zero gravity chairs from True Value and wonder how much precious space they will take up for us. Thanks in advance...  tymote

Our 2350 is 5 years old.  PC-USA has made some variations since the 2007 model year.
- mounted a drawer in the lower open area
- subwoofer inside the compartment or not
- water tank mounted against rear bumper, or more forward which shifts the storage compartment forward/rearward

I also wonder if there is a design variation between 2012 slide out and non-slide out models.  It seems when you get a slide out, the furnace is mounted under the bed.  If you don't have a slide out, the furnace might still be mounted under the fridge.  It has to do with the fridge being in the slide out.

Replies from people with 2012 2350 models should be clear about which they have.

Thanks... I know changes are made often. But can someone help with the ruff dimensions of its interior?  a guesstimate?

ruff dimensions
    When I had a 2350 I could lay my chairs down on the shelf, now with the twin beds I can not. My chairs when folded are 18" x 18", so I figure the cabinet was 18" deep on the shelf. The opening is 35" wide and from the top of the shelf to the top of the opening is 14". There is a couple of inches above that if I recall.
   The drawer is 14" high and 34 1/2" wide and 21" deep (front to back). From the bottom of the drawer to the top of the opening is 29 1/2" high.

    These are ruff dimensions based on my failing memory and my 2552. The big difference should be because of the full bed in the 2350 and the twins in the 2552.
Hope this is of some help to you.

thanks TomHanion.... that helps alot. I would assume that since the 2350 is a double bed setup, the depth is something more than what your 18x18 chairs needed.

Your help was appreciated as now I know I have enough room for what is coming out of my Rialta's back trunk!

On our 2010 2350 we traded we could not get our zero gravity chairs in the back no how, now way. I bet if you measure your chairs they are more than 18 inches wide.  I still struggle with taking chairs.  On my 2350 I resorted to carrying them on top of the slide when it was in (of course).  The key is to remember they are up there before you put the slide out. I am pretty sure I started a chair poll to see what people are using and how they carry them.  Check it out.

thanks.... I believe I did run across your thread on chairs.  Maybe that is why we see so many chairs bungied to the ladders!   :)

I just measured my 2007 2350 storage.  It won't be helpful for you k9aeg, but may be for others considering an older 2350.

Lower section: 36w x 16d x 8h
Middle section: 42w x 36d x 11h
Top section: 51w x 44d x 5h

Door Opening 34w x 22h (door height is less than the over-all compartment height of 24)
Keep in-mind that I added an accumulator tank and pump cover that takes up some room.  Most won't have but the water pump alone, out in the open.
In the main middle section, far right, you can see the two drain valves for the fresh water plumbing.

Oh now that is one envious "side storage compartment" for sure.  :-D tymote tymote  We all would like something like that, and my 2012 2350 is not even built yet! 

Evidently the later 2350 layouts must put the water tank on the far end now, limiting the available depth to 18".   I think I read somewhere here that that was done for load balance to get more weight on the axial.  Probably for better NASCAR handling?  :lol

I think you are right about that.  My 41 gallon fresh water tank lays against the rear bumper.  That of course is not ideal for over-all vehicle handling when full of water.  It is easy to conclude that is why I needed to have some suspension upgrades to correct some handling concerns.

I think the newer design turns the tank 90 degrees and is mounted against the bathroom wall which sacrifices the depth of the compartment.  The storage door is then slid rearward where the tank used to be.  The area to the right by the rear tires gets utilized by the furnace.  The end result is the fresh water tank is placed near the center line of the rig and more forward.  That is much better for weight distribution, but sacrifices significant rear storage to achieve it.  I also wonder how well it fills.  I have read of some "burping" issues where air gets trapped and then the water can't get into the tank without using a filler thingy.

I wish someone with a newer 2350 would "check" me on my accuracy.

Here is a picture of a 2012 2350.  Note the locations of the water filler door, the main storage door, and furnace service door.



I wish I had a better picture of my 2007, but note the water filler door is rearward and the storage door is forward.  My furnace is on the other side of the motor home.  I do not have burping issues when filling the fresh water tank because the tank is right up against the filler door.

Just got a couple of zero grav chairs.. Yes your are correct... they are big.. way too big for side storage.  Maybe on the roof rack?   (Too bad they have to make them so large.)

Frankly, I canít remember.  We were staying at Navarre Beach Campground (FL) three years ago and stopped at the Gulf Breeze Camping World for something.  Spotted these on sale Ė impulse buy.  Weíre not fond of bag chairs and liked these, typical folding chairs but padded.  Theyíre comfortable and the right size and color.  Sorry canít be of more help.
