Jim,I missed the part as to the PC model you plan to order. If ordering a 2552 as stated in your profile, I kindly offer my thoughts. Yes really like the 2552. This is about the largest my wife will feel comfortable driving that has permanent beds which is the first requirement I was given. - YES to the spare tire because the extra weight in back is not of concern [b]SOLD. would never want to have to wait for service for simple tire change. [/b]- NO to the Euro chair for a no-slide, or if you plan to seat-belt a 3rd passenger now and then. Get a fixed 3rd captain seat (with seat belt) instead because there is no place to move it anyway. Agreed, thug we do want a slide unit, the chair seems bulky and unneccesary when you can just spin the passenger seat around. Willl likely go for the extra cabinet there that provides a mll table.- YES to a separate switched porch light in back and also on driver side to light up all around the PC when needed Great idea! - YES to small awnings over all windows on driver side Great idea again. Had not thought much about this but I do like the looks and they must help quit a bit with heat of the sun.- YES only for ALCOA brand alloy wheels. Avoid other brands for the alloy is very likely a weaker material. This one will depend on price. Though I do love the look of nice Aluminum rims, I dont want to buy an expensive maintenence item. Even the clear coated ones don't look good forever. - YES to two 6V AGM batteries Ok, agreed- NO to undercoating (you already agreed) - YES to full body paint I don't know what TV antenna gets installed these days. I do not like our old style crank-up one at all. It works fine, but is a massive contraption that is horribly installed on the roof with lots of goop and a strange shaped mounting plate. It's not Phoenix's fault but rather the design of the antenna. I also don't like where Phoenix mounted it. I feel they should have mounted our antenna a foot further back to avoid the otherwise nicely painted, clean & smooth B+ cap. A non-crank-up antenna would not have a crank inside, just a rotator. Or maybe install a 360 degree antenna not requiring rotation. Either choice could be placed anywhere in the ceiling inconspicuously. [b]I have noticed just this on some of the used ads. Antenna up on the front cap doesn't look good. We will probably not go for satellite and a good non-crank will suffice.[/b]I personally love the wood grain cab area we have, but that is surely a personal matter. Make sure Phoenix understands the finish you want whether it be matching wood grain or the carbon fiber look. Interesting you mention this. At the Tampa show all the units had the gold carbon fiber look. We didn't really like it but didn't ask about available choices. Will now. Thanks!Keep in-mind that you can have the current offering galley sink and stove, or the older design with square sink and Corian-covered stove. We don't mind the look of the new style but will certainly inquire about options at the factory. I would ping the few people here who have experience with both designs. We love our older design a lot with one exception that I am not sure is avoided with the stove of today. When cooking with an extra large pan that over-hangs the knobs, the heat damages them as SHOWN HERE with ours. I replaced the knobs and decal so it's fine again. If only my wife would pay better attention. It takes many times cooking with a don't care attitude for them to get like that. Sounds like you and your wife are opposite my wife Marge and I. She tends to be the more meticulous one and I am more often the one being "corrected" . But it is all good. Irene thought I was over-protective of our PC until she finally cooked them to look like the pictures. She has since made sure the large pan over-hangs elsewhere.
