If I hadnt run into the deal on the MH I have I would have gotten the 2551 in heartbeat. I like the layout and the quality of what they put into their MHs. How did you like the twin beds? That looked like a great way to go. Im a big guy so wasnt sure they would be wide enough or comfortable enough without changing mattresses. Weve changed the mattress on every RV weve ever had. Just curious. Ty.

After 10 years with our original PC mattress, we finally replaced it. We found a Hometics 6" (4.5" standard foam, 1.5" memory foam) mattress sold at Walmart for $117 was perfect to start with and cut to size. The outer zippered case it comes with was fairly easy to rework. We went a step further and bought from Phoenix USA, a custom fit "interior fabric matching" zippered mattress cover for an exceptional finish.


We love our Phoenix Cruiser.

What I like about the twin beds is one is longer that the other. I'm six ft and wife is 5 ft. The width seems just fine. mattress was comfortable, firm but good for my back. I wouldn't have a corner bed. All in all we really like the PC.

Ron Ditmer's note on this: "It's power & weight ratings are a little less than their Ford counter-parts making them a great chassis for all but the heaviest of class Cs." Not sure where this Class C stands in that spectrum. Will be dinghy towing our Chevy Spark with what ever we buy. thanks for any input.


We have a 21RS and tow a chevy sonic. Love the rig. It comes with a tow botton on the dash that corrects the transmission for the incline you are running. Saves on gas and helps downhill. The back up camera is available anytime so you can check your toad and traffic behind you.
The walls use aztel panels that are lighter weight and offer construction that will not be infiltrated with water problems like standard fiberglass, insulation, paneling construction.
There is also a large basement storage below the bed. We specifically picked the chevy platform for the extra storage that was not offered on the ford platform. You picked a great rig. Enjoy your travels.
