All good things have to come to an end
« on: July 25, 2023, 12:41:25 pm »
After ten years of wonderful ownership and fine service, it is time for us to sell our 2013 PC 2350. 

We have meticulously maintained it and we were so excited when we bought it from a newbie ten years ago this September.   He had owned it eleven months and decided, much to his wife's dismay, what he really wanted was big diesel pusher.   We had spent a year looking at new units online and had decided on the 2350 as our ideal coach because we loved the size and the large black tank which would is perfect for boondocking, which is how we mostly camp.  We planned to fly up to the factory and order a new one.   Then, this baby with full body paint and more options than we would have ever ordered popped up for sale less than five miles from our home!!   Since they only made about 20 of this model a year (best we could determine) it was an amazing discovery for us.   We made the deal with the seller in less than an hour, a record for me buying anything much beyond a T shirt!!

Now, after forty years of RVing, age and situation tells us it is time to move on from owning our lovely coach.   For ten years this unit has been stored in an enclosed garage, just as the original owner did during his eleven month tenure.  So, we begin the process of finding a new home for our "baby".   

This forum has been immensely helpful to me over those ten years.   Thanks to all that contributed and gave us a lot of good advice and technical knowledge we didn't possess, particularly as it applies to some of the things unique to PCs.   

Finding a value for a fully equipped, always garaged coach with less than 34,000 miles is difficult and that is where we are in the process now.   If anyone has any ideas let me know.   I have been searching online for some comps and so far the results of that are limited.  There just doesn't seem to be many low mileage upscale Cs fully equipped in top shape to compare.

Paul,
I am sad to hear that you guys are going to sell the PC.  I can't be any help to you on value, but if I could--I would.
You were one of the first forum members to give me advice back in 2018 about the purchase of my own Cruiser.  As a fellow Oklahoma guy, I reached out to you and you were most gracious and helpful.
Since that time (and before), you have continued as a key contributor to this forum; I can only hope that you will maintain contact after your Cruiser is sold.
Wishing all the best for your sales process (and the future).
Mike

Paul; Best  wishes to you and yours.

If someone is looking for the ideal motorhome that will fit into a 24 ft National Parks campsite a Phoenix Cruiser 2350 is the  one to own. And much like savvy boat owners, we who seek them out  already know. But I would not be surprised if 2350 production was actually closer to 10 per year over  the entire 18 year run.

Thanks Mike and Calcruiser.   I appreciate your comments.   I am cleaning the PC out today and detailing it for the next lucky owner.  Gonna be a warm job considering the forecast for 102F here in Oklahoma City today!

From what I learned, the PC 2350 rarely appears on the used market.  Those, that do, disappear rapidly.  That became evident when conducting our search.  We found many being advertised were phantom listings remaining long after the vehicle was sold.  I also noticed that  some dealers manipulated their ads.  By including a Phoenix Cruiser in their lisitngs, the desireable vehicle would generate calls.   Bait and Switch perhaps.

Interesting to note how few were made each year.  According to your statistics.  Considering the scarcity and desireability, yours should sell quickly.

Thank you so very much for all the great advice and assistance you have provided to us over the years. You will be missed, unless you miss us first, and just can't resist seeing what is going on here (my guess!)
Happy rv-less trails...
