We pulled the trigger

We did it. This past Saturday, my wife and I pulled the trigger on a 2013 Jayco X17z. Thanks so much to everyone for helping with my questions for the last couple of weeks. The towing setup with my 2015 Pathfinder isn't going to 100% ideal. The towing capacity is no trouble, but somewhat low payload capacity will mean I'll have to pack the right amount in the vehicle and the camper. With that said, I'm not at all concerned. We pick up the camper on Friday, and we're going to a state park about 45 minutes away for our maiden voyage on Saturday! Here's a pic, and I'll be sure to post more when I get it home and after the overnight campout this weekend.

We haven't taken it yet. We take delivery of the camper tomorrow. We're heading on Saturday to a state park that's 45 minutes away.

Thanks everyone! I've been itching all week to get the thing in my grasp so I can stock it with the meager supplies that will fit under its CCC limit, and then get to a campground!

I have the exact same unit, I love mine.
I think you will like it a lot, the weight limit has been a big issue for me yet, just have to plan accordingly. I carry my water in the tow vehicle or get it onsite onlocation.
