Jayco X17Z New Owner

We had a pop up for a while. We enjoyed it, once set up, but too many times we dealt with bad weather that made the set up of the camper just horrible.

So we wanted to move up to something that we could, in a pinch, just do enough set up to alleviate the tongue weight and wait it out.

We also wanted something that we could actually get into without all the hassle.

We'll be picking it up within the next two weeks and really look forward to getting it out into the Fall weather.

How does it do, in terms of climate control? It can't help but be better than our last pop-up (or our tents), which had neither heat (usable heat, I should say) or AC.

We love our 17Z. We have the solar covers from Pop-up Gizmos and used them at the beach a few years ago. The 17Z kept us as cool as we wanted. We haven't used it when it was very cold, but I think you will be pleased with it.

Keep us posted and be sure to post pictures.

We have the x20e, which is the bigger brother to the 17z. AC kept us nice and cool in the 90 degree weather. We did find that closing curtains to the bunk ends helped quite a bit. We have not used the furnace yet, but from testing I don't think we will have any problems staying warm.
