  1. Most reputable Class C manufacturer?

    One source https://www.rvtrader.com/New-Or-Used-Phoenix-Cruiser-2551-RVs-For-Sale---RVTrader.Com/search-results?make=Phoenix&model=Cruiser 2551|764847085&sort=featured%3Aasc&layoutView=listView&
  2. Flat Towing

  3. Our Custom Class B!

    Well actually our girls ride on the sofa while we are underway. . .they've been trained to get in their "travel bed". At night they both sleep on our Queen size bed which makes up from the "travel bed" sofa during the day. That's why we went with a B+ instead of a B. We had looked hard at Airstream Interstate and Pleasure-Way, but since we often extend our trips to multiple months, we went for a bit more space. We love the slide out. But, that's us.
  4. Our Custom Class B!

    I don't remember you saying how big your dog is; but in our B+, we carry two folding dog crates for our two 25# Cocker Spaniels. Like this one only smaller https://www.amazon.com/Fashion-Folding-Suitcase-Kennel-Playpen/dp/B01FUCER9C/ref=sr_1_5?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1510860065&sr=1-5&keywords=folding+dog+crate&dpID=51V7TKBg7eL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
  5. Phoenix USA, Inc. has new owners

  6. Livability and reliability of View vs Isata 3

    We are obviously big fans of Phoenix Cruisers, makers of well built B+ RVs having seen how they are built in custom pods rather than an assembly line process. It's not unlike how Foretravel builds their Class A DPs which we have owned, so we were impressed with the company in Elkhart, IN. Take a look http://www.phoenixusarv.com/
  7. Hard to find a used Calss B

    Not close but. . .http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,2883.msg23695.html#new http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,2843.0.html
  8. Hard to find a used Calss B

    Check back on this link from time to time. They are very trustworthy folks to buy from and like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get (on the used RV section that is). http://www.phoenixusarv.com/inventory.html
  9. Keeping in touch-Class of 2006

    BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! We recently discovered Suzanne has to have her left knee replaced. She has been fighting the "knee wars" with injections and ibuprofen but the battle has been lost. We had to cancel our reservations at Val Vista RV Resort where we had a site just up the street from Barb and Dave O'Keeffe; and plans to visit our Tucson RV old hippie friends "JeffThe Younger" and Carol. The visions of great company, good wine and luscious breakfasts have gone "poof"! But, this cunning plan will resurrect next year with an added feature: our 50th Wedding Anniversary redo celebration in Las Vegas by none other than "Elvis" himself. We will spend Thanksgiving renewing our vows (as if needed) with all our kids & grandkids there; hopefully some brothers and families; and best of all any of our RV family who might be in the area. But, for right now looking at Oct. 13, 2017 for her surgery.
  10. Route 66

    You probably want to start your trip here with your tow vehicle, leaving your trailer at a campground near Joliet. The start of Route 66 is no place for any RV of any large size. http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2011/09/30/your-chicago-route-66-starting-point/
  11. Keeping in touch-Class of 2006

    Our appreciation knows no bounds!
  12. Keeping in touch-Class of 2006

    Well, we keep moving. . .we are harder to hit that way! Just got back from a 12 day trip to Montreal, Quebec to see the grand daughter settled into her dorm at McGill University. Had a great time playing the "Kebecker" tourist refreshing our understanding of French language traffic signs. Good thing Suzanne is a French teacher. . .saved my skin! We will spend the next month getting Fawkes and our stix & brix ready for our 6 month escape from Chicagoland winter. Heading for Mesa Oct. 8th for a more than two month stay just a few spaces down the street from Barbaraok and Dave at Val Vista RV Park. Got some old hippie friends in Tucson we'll visit while we are in the area as well as some World of Warcraft buddies in Phoenix. We are going to need the breakfasts that Barb, Dave, Suzanne and I go looking for around the Mesa area! Oh, and wine to calm our fatigue! Then on to Las Vegas for three weeks to visit our money left there over 49 years of wedded bliss and leave a little more to keep it company. We'll then head to the Bay Area to visit some long lost family then head back to Chicagoland via Baytown, TX to see Amanda, Robert and Jean-Luc. ♫♪♫ "We were born under a wandering star."♪♪♫
  13. Dreaming...

    Don't confuse a B with a B+. That + is there for a reason. Here's an example. http://www.phoenixusarv.com/2552.html There will probably be one to look at at the Hershey show. I think there is a guy on the forum named Paw Paw who wants to sell his 2011 Model 2551. . .just sayin' that they're out there.
  14. Dreaming...

    We wish you well in your search for the RV for you. We chose a Class B+ so we would have the entertainment center over the cockpit instead of a bed and it fits our needs perfectly. These guys will be at the Hershey, PA show http://www.phoenixusarv.com/ . Be sure to take a look at how the Phoenix Cruisers are put together. We bought ours pre-owned since a new one was out of our budget; but have had tremendous support from the service dept. on some repair issues. This company survived the RV economic downturn by being smart and making a good RV. They don't sell through dealers...only factory direct with warranty work covered if you use your local trusted RV repair shop or, of course at the factory in Elkhart, IN.
