I love your documentation. Thanks! Re: overweight... When you scaled, did you have any other cargo on board? (besides the you, the propane and 3 water tanks listed on the slip) We had been looking at longer coaches on the 450 chassis... but your writings confirm some of my weight worries. Awesome pics! Really gives a look into the build process. Thanks again.
Wow... all you have to do is keep all tanks empty and find another 500 pounds of stuff to remove... Guess 31 feet on a 450 chassis doesnt leave a lot of cargo allowance. Whats the cargo weight rating on the PC sticker?

To promote a consistent conspicuous label location, the final rule specified that permanent load carrying capacity labels be affixed to the interior of the forward-most exterior passenger door on the right side of the vehicle and be visible. As an alternative, to address aesthetic considerations, the rule permitted manufacturers to place a temporary label to the interior of the forward-most exterior passenger door on the right side of the vehicle and to apply a permanent label in the area of the vehicle specified by FMVSS Nos. 110 and 120 for tire information.
On Type B and Type C motor homes, the temporary or permanent load carrying capacity label will be placed on the inside of the passenger door to the cab of the vehicle. Also, if no doors exist on the right side of the vehicle, the permanent or temporary load carrying capacity label will be placed on the inside of the inner door on the rear of the vehicle.
Hi John, can sympathise with your build , had a new car a handful of years ago with bad steering issues, factory found issue and had dealer correct and a month later had a TSB on the issue . Got rid of that wreck for a minivan , upgraded it and a year later and a tree fell on that onet ! Got another with , again , steering issues , almost a year later..lemon lawed that one . Goes to show that stuff happens , shouldn't but it does .Thanks a ton for the pictures , agree with Jim G there on a lot of his post, questions too . Being a prospective buyer, it means a lot .Couple follow up questions from seeing pics .. I assume your batteries still slide out , being side mounted ? Are those insulated/thermo windows ? Glass I assume if thermo ? The vent pipe (?) in bath towel closet is visible like that after build ?? The cab window covers... nice and where did those come from ? An extra Thanks for the roof shot , first real roof shot I've seen on a Phoenix ! Hope all goes well with slide issue for you . Pappy !
