Default Phoenix Cruiser 2100

Currently a Sportsmobile owner, and love it, but age & health are pressuring us to look to an RV with more conveniences. Long story short we're looking at a Phoenix Cruiser 2100. It's the smallest RV we can find that affords us the amenities that we think we want (we are rapidly approaching our 70's): a dedicated eating area, a walk around bed, kitchen & bath. (Bath isn't that important, yet).
And my question is what are your opinions of this make & model? Up & downs. Pros & cons.
Thanks

everything I have seen or heard is the Phoenix cruiser is "top of the line) ,,,,we have them on our "be on the look out" list. as we age...stairs are the big issue. but you can always use the front doors of the coach. I think they might have a "sort of kinda" fiberglass roof. The Navions are real nice if you can afford one.

Stopped by the Phoenix Cruiser plant and was quite impressed. Seems to have all the answers to all our questions. Just might go for one.

Nothing other than it was a one piece body. Really impressed with what they have and how they do it, and have a bunch of things to work out before we make a move. Number one is to sell our SportsMobile and then see what we're talking about. And also exactly what we want.

Thanks, but a 2551 is a bit larger than we want. We did go ahead and ordered a 2100 just a couple of weeks. Can't wait till March to pick it up.
Just have to convert our style from Camping to RVing. Ain't never sat under no awning before. A refrigerator, sofa and inside bathroom, WOW! Guess we'll learn to get used to these. For that money we have to!

If people are going to consider other rv's in this size then consider the Lazydaze 24. i believe this is by far the best value. Also, the Lazy Daze frame, located between the inside and outside walls, is backed with a lifetime warranty to the original owner.

Thanks for the input on the Thor, Lazydaze, etc. But We believe the PC floor plan suits us best with a walk around bed, a full time eating eating (dinette) and all the other standard features. The bed where you don't have to crawl other one another or do the crab crawl to get in & out of is a huge thing to us. And with the full time dinette, the DW can sleep in while I have my coffee and surf the web.
I think the PC is for us, but thanks for the thoughts and we're always open for suggestions.
