Considering Phoenix 2551

I'm considering a Phoenix 2551 as my first motorhome and was looking for some feedback positive or negative

We have an Phoenix Cruiser 2552 which is the big brother to the 2551. The main difference is that it is one foot longer which allows for a chair to the right of the entrance door and a pantry between the sofa and the refer. We find that the size is just about right for us. We have had motorhomes ranging from 21 to 35 feet and like the smaller size. Before getting this motorhome we had a PC 2350 which we traded because of the rear corner bed was a pita, the twins are much better.

Phoenix is really good to work with as far as changes to your rig while it is being built. They have several layouts and sizes to start with but there is always something you would like different. We have about 15 things changed in our 2552 from extra fantastic fan, no mirrors on the wardrobe doors, changed shirt closets to self closets, etc.
You should go to the PC forum and read it, I think you will find just about everyone likes them. Cruisers Forum - Index

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.

We bought a 2910D Phoenix Crusier last March based on it being the best looking, best equipped and best priced unit in the market. The initial concern about dealing directly with the manufacturer has been erased after our visits to the plant and the telephone support they have given. After 10,000 miles I conclude the build quality as well as fit and finish is quite good. It is an ego trip to have such a nice unit. I gloat a lot.

We wanted to consider a PC 2350 when we were looking. I called the salesman several times and sent emails through the website for some to call me. However, I never got a returned phone call or email. Finally decided that if that was customer service, then I will look elsewhere. We ended up buying a Forest River Solera and it fits our needs well. Glad to here my experience trying to buy was not typical.
