We've had a number of rigs since 1976 and there were goods & bads with most of them. Regarding Phoenix Cruisers; we traded from an Alpine Coach diesel-pusher to our 1st PC, a 2350, which saw a lot of miles the year we had it. However, it was a bit small and we didn't care for the small bed in the rear or the barrel chair. So we moved up to a 2551. That was good and traveled well but it didn't have a chair. Finally, like Tom, we moved up to a 2552 with slide, which is perfect for us.
A word about the factory; they are the best people I've ever dealt with and really care about the after-sale experience. As example, we had the reefer door break and the factory took a new door off a reefer in a unit they were building, packed it, express shipped it to a friend along our route and it was there for us when we arrived (the day after we called them). That can only be considered exemplary.
As Tom suggested, go to the PC forum and browse through some of the postings. You'll find many examples and opinions of how PC owners feel about their rigs and the factory.
