Question for 2910 Owners
« on: September 02, 2015, 11:48:13 pm »
My wife BJ and I are considering a change from our 3100 to one of the 2910 models.  As I look at the 2910D I see things I like, but then the 2910T has a lot of things going for it.  The biggest difference I can see is that the T would give that extra storage under the dinette that we could use for "pantry" items whereas the D does not have that.  Can some of you experienced owners let me know what your thoughts are?  If you have a D, where do you store things?  If you have a T are there drawbacks that I am not seeing. 
Thanks for any input on this.

Richard

Our first PC was a 2910T. We chose the "T" for the opposing slides up front which provides an open, comfortable living space. The storage under the dinette benches is great for pots, pans and other items. What we did not like was the third slide with the queen bed. We found it tight and difficult to get in and out of when you have back problems (its tough getting old...). The queen bed may be good for others, but did not work at all for us.

A year later we traded our 2910T for a custom 2910. Our current unit has twin beds in the rear instead of the queen slide out. Replacing the queen with twin beds provides a lot of extra overhead storage around the sides and rear of the coach, eliminates the third slide which greatly improves leveling capability and reduces weight. After two years we are very pleased with this floor plan

Thanks, Jim and Beth.  We wondered about the tightness of the queen.  We asked Earl if it could be made with a double bed and he said it could.  That might give us a few more inches around the edges.

I agree with Jim and Beth about the 2910 with double beds but not so much for access space.  More important is for weight reduction off the driver side duals which are maxed out with the slide room on them.

We do not have any particular problem getting in and out of the short queen bed... or with the space available around it.  We also have no problem with kitchen storage.  I have been in th 2910T and felt clustrophobic with the dinette room filling space that I am accustomed to when on the road.

We are new to this forum and are interested in the 3100. We want twin beds but don't like the dinette and sofa on the same side, and really need a nightstand between the beds. Your design sounds much better. What ķind of storage did you end up with in the bedroom? Wardrobes? Nightstand?

Is there a way to close off the bathroom/shower area from the living area so that one is not seen making a naked wet dash to the bedroom?

And can the kitchen be used without extending the slides? Is there enough room to sit on either side without extending the slides?

And what size did your tanks turn out to be? And how did this change affect exterior storage?

Thanks!

We have a Custom 2910. Twin beds in the rear with a nightstand between the beds. This nightstand has the Corian top that matches
 the Corian in the galley. We use the bottom to store our shoes and the top shelf for misc. stuff. We have storage all around the top of the bedroom area and a shirt closet on each side . The only negative is that we don't have a full wardrobe as we had in the 2551. I really miss that.
The way to close off the shower/bathroom is to open the bathroom door all the way.

We only have one slide that has the sofa, stove and microwave in it.

The blackwater tank is 23 gal. and the gray 35 gal.

We also had a cabinet built for behind the driver's seat. It is similar to the cabinet in the 3100 behind the passenger seat.

Really, the only negative is that wardrobe. Other than that, we find the rig, as we have it, suits our needs for 4 months on the road in the summer.

Thanks,  Judi. Very helpful!

Do you know the dimensions of your twin beds?

Hi All,

This discussion over a rear twin bedroom has me sharing that this floor plan was discontinued around 2011.  It was 29'-8" long.  I'm sharing this only to stir creative thoughts.  It is nearly a foot shorter than the longest PC today, and the slide out today would include the fridge.


About a slide out on the same side as the entry door, I wonder if it can get in the way at the campsite.  We enjoy having our awning open with a picnic table underneath it.  A slide out sticking out on that wall would seem to take away from our sheltered & shaded outdoor space.  Not only physically in the way, but visually in the way.  Adding that some of our campsites get a little tight with bushes, rocks, and trees.  Having a slide out on the outdoor living side of the rig would make getting around more difficult.  I suppose then you keep that slide out tucked inside.

I bring up this point for people shopping for a motor home, but have not considered that.

RichardP:

I have the 3100S  (had a 2551S before) and like it very much because it works well for two people. Before settling  on the 3100 I approached PC to do exactly what GradyGal  did with their 2910D but at that time for some reason the factory said my modifications could not be done (several months later GradyGal had theirs).  I think that a modified 2910D to facilitate twin beds is a great approach.  Instead of the bed stand between the beds I would consider a ceiling to floor closet (had that set up in and old Fleetwood Jamboree and it worked great), you would loose the rear window but that is no big deal.  The "T" is great for space but I would have some serious concerns about the chassis being overloaded.   Best of luck with your selection process, those rear bathrooms are very nice I must admit.  Thanks, Ron G.

The twin beds are the same size as the twins on the 2551(i believe) 34x68 and 34x74. I'll check with George when he gets home and edit the sizes if that is not correct.

We posted pictures of what we did to the 2910 on the Forum. If you search Our 2910 Single slide, posted on 6/30/2012, you will see pictures. There is also a post New shelf in 2910 posted on 2/5/2013 and New cabinet behind driver's seat posted on 10/6/2102. If you can't find these on the Forum, PM me you Email address and I will forward them to you.

This was our 3rd PC. It took us 3 tries to get it right. We had never had a Motorhome before--actually, we had sailboats so PC's were our first MH's and Rving. Glad we found Phoenix Cruisers.

My bed sizes were wrong. The driver's side bed is 34x74, the passenger side bed was 32x74. I just got a new mattress for my side and it is now 34x74. So both beds are 34x74.
