Hello Greg, I scrolled back through your posts and don't think this subject was covered so I wanted to toss one more thing out for consideration - 4 wheel drive. Phoenix offers that option and it might be worthwhile for someone that truly wanders the back roads of our national parks and forests. We have the standard E-450 chassis and have been fine but we tow a Subaru so all our creek crossings and trips down rutted dirt roads have been in that instead of the Phoenix. I know that option would probably require a wait as there aren't that many used ones out there but it's such a thrill to have your perfect house presented to you at the end. Good luck on your search and decision making. Holly
Congratulations on your new PC. I also travel with an older dog, 14 years, who must have a ramp to get in and out. Many ramps are either too long, or have a large hump where they rest on the step, actually making them a stumbling hazard. I found a perfect size (36"x14") on Amazon. I peeled off the black friction surface and replaced with a light colored traction tape...as the black surface was invisible to the dog at night, even with a light, and she wouldn't step onto what looked to her like a black hole. I also replaced the black on the step, and it makes it much more visible.Ramp: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JLRR3DU/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1Traction tape: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B05VZMG/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
My electric step protrudes from the outside face of my door just under 12". Resting a ramp on the lip of the stairwell means you would have to take it on and off each time you want to use it, and can't leave it in place while you are camped. I just leave my ramp in place on the step from the time I park to the time I leave, as I can easily step past it, and we seem to go in and out pretty frequently.
1. I feel insulated (double pane) windows are worth the price. 3. In reviewing the forum, I have not found much conversation regarding the quality of P.C.'s full body paint. Pictures can be deceptive regarding a good quality paint process.Your feedback and opinions will be appreciated.Happy MotoringJohnny & Kathey
