Hello from the Hoosier State!

Hey All......

Been reading the forums here while the wife and I were trying to decide on a TT. We are moving up from a 1982 Coleman PUP, (we bought this brand new in '83). It has served us well and everything still works and looks good. We have created a lot of memories with the kids, now grown-up. My daughter and her husband go camping with our 5 year old grand-son. We intend to pass this on to my son and his wife, who are expecting their first child in the next couple of weeks!

After looking on-line at various models and brands, we decided on the hybrids, specifically the Jayco X23B, we really like the floor-plan and the roominess. We also seriosly considered the X20E, but the wife liked the extra counter space of the 23B. According to the dealer, it is supposed to roll off the assembly line tomorrow! And they should have it sometime in the first week of July..... But when we actually get to pick it up will depend on when our new grandson decides to come! That does take precedence you know, LOL!

Looking forward to meeting some new friends here!

Thanks!

What part of the state are you from? We like to camp at Lincoln State Park, near Holiday World in Santa Claus Indiana.

BTW, I just got word today from the dealership that our 23B TT arrived!

Now if I could only get the grandbaby to co-operate, we could make the 3 hour trip to get the camper!

I'm in Northwest indiana. We like to go to Potato Creek SP. We've camped at Lincoln SP, but it's been awhile. We once spent a week at Holiday World when our kids we young. Had a great time.

Hi Glsimms! Congrats on your 23B! We are new 23B owners as well. We actually had a 20e on hold but decided the extra storage and counter space was worth the extra cost. We love our hybrid and can't wait to get out again. Love to hear any camping stories as well. Enjoy and welcome to the JOF!

Thanks!

We actually did the same thing! We had decided on a 20E, but the wife got on the 'net and printed out pics of the kitchen of both models and said for the difference, she'd rather have the 23B. So, I called the dealer and told them we changed our mind!
