Bill,

I'm uncertain of what measurement you want to arrive at the amount of living space.

For the "cab" itself, do you want the length from the front bumper to the rear edge of the driver's side door?

We use the entire inside length of the coach from the front windshield to to rear wall of the bathroom while we are camped.  I can measure that if you think it would be useful to you. 

The passenger seat turns around, we store items on and around the drivers seat, and we have a small table that straddles the engine cover to provide counter space there.

I would be cautious in using any "stated length" of different models in determining "living area" as I have found them to be inaccurate in many cases.

Yes to your second sentence....the cab length of every Ford 450 chassis should be the same. Curious as to how much of the stated length is actually the camper/house/living part. The brochures give you the width but not length of the BOX.

Bill,

Here are the length measurements made today on our 2552:
Ford cab area (front bumper to forward part of the PC house) is approximately 8
Forward part of the PC house to the rear wall) is approximately 19 3
The PC rear cap including the spare tire cover is approximately 13

Hope this is of some help in your search for the model that fits your needs.

Hello from Central Florida.  Proud owner of new to me 2351 with slide dinette.  I want to thank everyone on this board for sharing their knowledge and opinions of the Phoenix Cruiser.   This is my first motorhome and I am sure there will be many questions forthcoming.   Already several questions have surfaced, but by using the search function I hope to resolve most of them.  I will post future problems/questions under appropriate headings.

Welcome swiftboat, we are newbies also. Ordered our 2552 with dinette slide a week ago. Now the wait.  :-[ There are members who have been most helpful on my learning curve, don't hesitate to ask. Guess we'll have to settle looking at the maps and planning our first road trip over the winter.

My Best,

Bill and Karen

Hi all, Finally got approved for the Forum.  Have been lurking as guest for the last few months.   We are owners of a 2005 40 Country coach Inspire and are thinking of downsizing in the next year or so.  Have talked to Earl last spring and liked what he said about the Phoenix Cruiser. Unfortunately we haven't seen one (2551 or larger) as yet in the flesh so to speak.
We travel with our 2 Bichons in the Summer (Get out of the Heat of Yuma).  Anybody near yuma?  Or will PC be at quartzsite this year?
Anyway as time goes on will probably have many questions.

We are going to be at Yuma Lakes RV resort January 18-25. We have a 2014 2350 with no slide but would be happy to show it off if it isn't too far below your interest level.

I have learned nothing is below or above interest.  ;)  Wife is against bed in a corner so thats why a 2551 or larger with twin beds is desired.  I think we may be in quartzite at that time but will keep it in mind.  Will be in touch later.  Thanks for the offer.
