Excellent point about access - I should have added we have a 2551 but do not tow - which has it's pluses and minuses... I misspoke about the Wind River Canyon Scenic Byway - we took it into Riverton - not Moran Junction. I might add that the same day we did Devil's Tower we also enjoyed the Crook County Museum in Sundance, WY

We have made the majority of our reservations in the morning the day of – with the exceptions of Sat/Sun – which we found we needed to plan a few days ahead.
We second Spearfish City Campground and the fish hatchery. The Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway is spectacular – switch backs, canyons, great waterfall... We took this from the Badlands to Spearfish.
Badlands/White River KOA – no Verizon signal in the park – older but clean – typical, tight KOA
Wind River RV Park – gravel parking lot - $ showers – felt safe – many FT - Riverton, WY – stocked up at Walmart here before we headed to Yellowstone – big box groceries are sparse/non-existent after Rapid City I believe. Took the Wind River Scenic Byway outside of Riverton towards Moran Jct. – another spectacular drive – canyons – switchbacks – bears…
Moran Junction – not a town – no stores – gas here was less than @ Yellowstone - Fireside Buffalo Valley RV Park – parking lot – gravel dead grass - no trees – close to Grand Teton National Park – safe – but location is what it has to offer
Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park & Cabins – very nice rv park – very close to the west entrance. Road to west entrance just past the hot springs is under construction for maybe 5 miles – down to dirt – but still reasonable – this area of the road is closed from 10 pm to 7 am for construction.
We wish that we had spent just one night in Moran Junction and moved on after we visited Grand Tetons.
It’s hazy throughout the area – cannot smell smoke though. Some areas of Yellowstone not accessible to RV’s – MOST are. We could have stayed in Yellowstone – full hook ups or dry camping – if you check now this could still be an option for you. We liked this map: http://www.yellowstonenationalpark.com/maps.htm nice because it gives mileage and helps provide perspective. Lamar Valley Drive: great for animal viewing. You might check out TripAdvisor for the most popular sites within the park – there’s so much to see and it’s incredible!
We didn’t check out potential rv parks at the other Yellowstone exits and would have at least looked into doing that in retrospect - more time/less miles maybe. By the time you’re at Old Faithful you’re quite close to the west exit where we are tonight. It’s amazing – enjoy and safe travels!

Also in the general vicinity if you have interest:

Depending on where you like to stay:
Asphalt parking lot but... overlooks the marina, walk to good restaurants on the other side of the bridge, use of the showers & laundry at the adjacent Fairfield Inn that opened last month, walk the lake front in Canal Park, watch the lift bridge go up to allow cargo ships entry to the harbor https://harborlookout.com/ships#0

Have fun!

Sorry it didn't work out. Not sure where you are located or perhaps traveling... We're in the Phoenix area should you be interested and out our way in the future. There was a 2014 2350 at a dealer in Mesa recently that might still be there if you would be interested and want to take a peek. Enjoy for your new Phoenix Cruiser!

Sorry your friends missed the opportunity to view the 2552 - but actually - they dodged the bullet. I was relieved to hear they were seasoned RV'ers because they would have looked at it with educated eyes. If they get up to this area again, we would be happy to show them our 2551. We are only a few miles away from the dealer they visited.

I might suggest a careful look at the undercarriage. An evaluation by an rv professional is a must.

General Discussion / Re: PC Weight Label
« on: October 10, 2017, 02:25:30 pm »
We were asked to come fully loaded. Full water tank. Full gas tank. We went the week before we left for Alaska – so we were thinking we’d be on the heavy side. We were able to move some heavier items in the back to equalize the weight. In retrospect, the unevenness made total sense between the way the 2551 is laid out and where we had placed our heavier items. It was very interesting and informative!

We traveled to Alaska this summer in our 2551 and did not tow. Our single snafu was at Denali because we travel with two dogs. There was a dog walker at the RV park, but we didn’t plan far enough ahead to rent a car leaving us unable to go on an eight hour bus trip into the park. I second Church’s and the Mile Post! Overall, we found Alaska to be very RV friendly with parking. We also would also be happy to answer any questions, share our itinerary, etc. It's an incredible trip - enjoy!

I am sad, only because it’s change and Kermit had a formula that worked - hopefully that will continue! For Kermit’s retirement, I would wish him in return all the excitement, new adventures, nature’s beauty, learning opportunities and enjoyment we have experienced in our Phoenix Cruiser – and it’s sure been fun! Thank you!

We use a bunge cord inside the 2551 shower. There are two open areas on either side of the top of the shower enclosures where they meet the back walls. The bunge ends hook into these areas - we hang towels over the cord or use hangers for a few clothing items. On traveling days we secure towels , etc or the tops of hangers with a spring clothespin to keep in place. If hung at night, we'll leave the shower door when we sleep for greater circulation.

We use a TP holder like this over the vanity door with the paper facing/stored inside the vanity: https://www.amazon.com/Over-Tank-Toilet-Paper-Holder/dp/B00KUSO6RK. We also use 3M Command hooks inside the shower - four hooks - one high/one low on either side of the shower faucets. We hang a hand towel over the top of the shower adjacent to the sink for drying hands. I really like the idea of mounting towel racks on the door now that I see it!

Three months – two adults – two 50 pound canine companions to Alaska. We were concerned about storage space so we took out one mattress and temporarily converted the area to storage space. Wife slept on the jackknife. In retrospect, we could have left a good deal of “stuff’ at home. But storage space was not an issue. If one person is seated it sure makes it easier for the other person to move around/do tasks – it’s easier to just need to navigate around the canines.
