Hi Lucy,

Assuming your rig will be accommodating two adults and maybe a guest now and then, a B+ (no over-head sleeper) would be a wise choice. You give up a lot of storage, but you gain more in other ways.

As mag..... mentioned higher up, a used Phoenix Cruiser is a nice consideration, especially the ones made starting in 2004 as identified by having the integrated spare tire in back. If you like single beds, model 2551 and 2552 are nice choices but 2552 is near 28' long. If you must sleep together, consider models 2700 with walk-around double bed, or model 2350 or 2351 with rear corner double bed.

Those look like nice MH's. I was looking at the 2351D with two slides and a queen bed. The only down side is it only has 27 gal of FW. Not good if you dry camp.

Yikes....27 gallons of fresh water is way too little. Where did you get that number from? I can't find the specs on it.

Model 2351 with one slide out carries 45 gallons of fresh water, the tank is under the bed. Maybe the 2351D with the slide-out there shrinks the fresh water tank.

27 gallons (5 of them in the water heater) would not work at all for us. Our 2007 model 2350 carries 41 gallons total and it works well. We do exclusively boondock.

Thanks guys!! I can drive the 5th wheel have for years just can't back it up. I'm just looking for input as to which class c you'd suggest. Once again thanks for your help


Take a look at the newer Class C's that are built on the Mercedes Sprinter chassis. Winnebago Navion, and Holiday Rambler Prodigy are 2 that come to mind. There are others out there as well. We are seriously considering upgrading/downsizing to one of them.

They are great up until something needs fixing in the Mercedes part of it. At that point, it turns in a money pit and imposible to find where to service it.
I would go with the 28Z

Hi Ron, it is on their web site. The 2351D is a nice layout, lots of room with the two slides and the queen bed. Most of the 24 ft Class C's with the full wall slides seem to have more FW at least 40 gals. The 2100 and 2400 also only had 26 gals of FW. Even their 2910D and 2910T which are 31 ft only have 36 gals which surprised me.

That is strange. Unlike the other models I click on, when I click on the 2351D floorplan, I don't get specs. I get a financing & credit feature. Oh well.

Their web site is not very user friendly you have to click on floor plans then Brochure on the left side, then brochure again in the middle under the picture of the PC, then scroll down until you see floor plans then specs.
