QuoteOne thing that surprised them was the height of the toilet. It is plainly too tall for both of them. They have a question to ask the factory about a lower pedistal....maybe no pedistal.I do not know about the toilets in the newer models of the 2350 but from the pictures it looks like it is on a pedistal. But in the 2551, the toilet is much lower since it is a different model toilet and it does not sit on a pedistal. Having had both the 2350 and now 2551 it was a real surprise when I first used the 2551 after having been used to the 2350. You are correct: the 2551/2 toilet is not on a pedestal - it is "normal" height and has a foot flush. The 2350 that we saw in production was on a pedestal but Amanda, Stuart's delightful daughter, told us she could check into d/c'ing that pedestal if we were interested. QuoteThey liked our older sliding windows for improved air circulation while parked. At first we were not sure if the newer style windows would give us the air circulation but having had both kinds of windows now we find the newer style to work very nice. Surprisingly you get very good circulation through them. And the best part is you do not have to worry about them being open if it is raining. We also like the rimless look on the outside.Ron's sliders are nice, but as was pointed out, for rain purposes and for not worrying about the dogs cleverly finding a way out while left alone, the new style is really fine. And, the awning-style window over the driver's side twin bed is actually a full awning top to bottom, on the right half of the window, so gives nice air flow.QuoteIt may be the old uncomfortable jack-knife style sofa.When someone needed to sleep in our 2350 on the sofa I always placed a piece of memory foam underneath the sheets and there were never any complaints. I would then roll the memory foam up and store it behind the sofa.They do put memory foam on this jack-knife sofa now, so it truly is not bad when it comes to comfort. I tried one out that was being put in a 2100 model -- but this very setup was what convinced me that we did not want to go with a 2350 without a slide, as it felt very "close" for me in there and the bed wasn't even folded down. It would be fine for a single person or someone with a small dog -- but perhaps not for two humans and several dogs.It is nice that they had a chance to see your unit so they can now compare the differences between 2007 and 2013. Hopefully they will be able to pick and chose and get exactly what they want. SueWell, once again, thank you all for your good wishes and extremely helpful advice. Ron's PC was a good backdrop for us to go see the 2013's and having spent time with him in his, made viewing them at the factory quick and easy. We believe that we did, get exactly what we wanted. Love the people at the factory, everyone was terrific, and am glad for Kermit that he has done so well both for himself and all of us who benefit from his hard work!

Having lived with two big dogs in a 2350 and now having a 2552 with one large 100 lb German Shepherd Dog, I think you will be happy with your choice. We had half a page of modifications to our 2552, like shelves in both shirt closets, no roof vent in the bedroom (the one in the bathroom was close enough to do the job), two fantastic fans (bathroom and living room) and jacks to level the PC when camped. What mods have you requested? ....One of the best things about Phoenix is their willingness to work with the customer to get just what the customer wants.
...We got the ladder but not the roof rack. One never knows when you might need to get on the roof to clean it or remove tree branches.....The new switch by the door turns on the light by the kitchen and we would have preferred it turn on the light by the door. We also wish they have taken one of the two bedroom overhead lights and put it up front near the front cabinets... ...Are you going to get the front shades from Amanda? They are kind of expensive but work really well at keeping people from seeing in during the day, keeping the sun/heat out and at night keeping the outside light from lighting up the front curtains.
