Just saw Stuart at the Tampa RV Show and he asked me to check out this new forum addition. Great Idea and I look forward to reading everyones input.
When my husband died 3 years ago I sold our Class A as I hadnít been the driver and felt it was too big for me to handle alone. Last year I started looking for a Class C. Requirements were power drivers seat(Iím short), levelers(no more ramps and blocks) and twin beds(one grandson ready to camp). Went to Hershey RV show in September and found the perfect fitÖ the 2551 Phoenix Cruiser. I modified the floor plan by eliminating the slide, replaced sofa with 2 chairs and fold down table, and provided room for golf clubs with lift up platform under the bed. I picked up my RV the end of October at the factory where I stayed overnight testing everything out. Next day Kermit (owner of Phoenix) and his crew fine tuned my rig, hooked up my tow vehicle and I headed for home. Over the next 350 miles my knuckles lost their white color and even relaxed. The best part about dealing with a small company is the personal attention and being able to ask the ďdumbĒ questions and getting a helpful response. Kermit builds a quality vehicle and takes pride in doing it right the first time. Heís always available to answer my questions and itís more than reassuring that he stands behind his vehicles even after theyíve left his factory. My maiden trip was to Florida for the winter and Iím looking forward to future travel. If youíre downsizing or looking for an RV thatís friendly to drive you should check out the Phoenix for quality construction and personal attention.
