Tips and Tricks / Re: Hitch Mount Bike Rack for PC?
« on: March 18, 2011, 01:18:59 pm »
I've been using the Allen bike rack - triple.  Sturdy, tilts down for easy access and best of all when used on my ford explorer stopped a car that rear ended me.  Only damage was to slightly bend the frame of the rack.  His car was totalled.

Size helps, but lighter background would make the biggest difference.

Aimee - Those color themes only change the top header not the posting area.  I'm sure a whiter text would help my old eyes.  Thanks again for all your efforts.

Aimee - Forum is terrific, but new white type on gray background is difficult to read.  Do we have an option to change the display?

It would be outstanding if you could get Kermit to share his RV knowledge on a regular basis.  He has such a wealth of information that would be helpful to both novice and experienced RVers. It's hard to ask questions when you first PU your PC, especially when you don't know what it is you're suppose to know.

General Discussion / Towing Vehicles (was Introduce Yourself)
« on: May 29, 2009, 04:52:50 pm »
I have a 2009 2551 and tow a 2003 Ford Explorer (5800). Use Brake Buddy.  Have only taken it on a few short trips so far, but it seems to purr right along behind me.  I'm sure a lighter vehicle would improve gas mileage (I drop about 1 MPG when towing).  This is my main vehicle and I have always had SUV's or Vans.

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.
