Pleased with our 2300

Just got back from our biggest trip this year in our 2014 Sunseeker 2300 and we are very pleased.

9 days
4 people (2 adults, 2 kids).
Small space but when everyone cooperates it's a breeze.
We used on-board shower and toilet facilities almost 100% of the time and loved it.
2100 miles. Averaged 10.5 mpg (60-65 mph) even through the mountains

That site is at Mama Gertie's in NC. Amazing view and wonderful people. FHU on the mountain view sites... We didn't want to leave . LOL. We traveled from Michigan to Georgia.

I thought that looked familiar, we were there in April. Great CG. Highly recommended. We'll be going back there!

We too have a 2300, 2013 Chevy chassis, 30mo old, just over 30k miles. Also getting 10.5 to 11.5 mpg, 10 mpg when towing 2007 Malibu. Wife and I are in our 70s, and frequently (when we can) travel with 2 granddaughters. Similar experience to yours. Just a few thoughts to share:
1. After market passenger side seat swivel is an excellent add on. Got mine from Shop4Seats.com, about $240 with shipping. Easy do-it-yourself install.
2. I had age related problems crawling out of the corner bed until I added 3 door handles to the underside of the window overhead cabinets, plus one on the wall opposite side of the frig. Purchased from Amazon, JR Products Assist Handle. Wide handles will not work. These are narrow enough to screw into the cabinet framing. They aren't strong enough for lifting your body, but work good to steady you when rising from bed.
3. Another help with the corner bed difficulties, invest in a Grip'n Grab Stick. Got mine through Amazon. Medium or longer length works to open cabinet doors, move pillows, and make up bed while standing on the floor.
Have several other "improvements", but these are the ones that make the most difference.
Have fun! We do!

I am going to look into the seat swivel. I use a separate chair when the dinette is full and this would be a nice add-on. Do you have a direct link to the swivel base for the Chevy?

Thank you.

Link is 96 + GMC/Chevy Swivel Plate Factory Seat. It bolts to the TOP of the seat base, not to the floorboard. You will get NO INSTRUCTIONs.

Be aware that you will need to crack the door open when executing the swivel. No big deal, but just to know and avoid the futile struggle. I installed a hanging bracket on back of a TV that hangs from the sink's folding shelf so that I can watch TV.
