we just upgraded from a pop up to the Jayco X23J. Took it out for the first time last weekend and we just love it. TV is 2007 ford Explorer with WD hitch, sway bar, and electronic braking. Seemed to do OK for a 2 1/2 hr trip away, with 6 hr commute home from Cape Cod in traffic, URGH! My wife and I are looking forward to many enjoyable trips in this with our toddler. Traveling with the pup just became a pain with a little one. Any suggestions/recommendations towing would be appreciated. I had 1 concern after the ride home. The transmission seemed a little funky on the ride home. Took a 30 minute break and then seemed fine the rest of the trip. Could this be the trans getting overheated? I'm pretty sure my truck has a transmission cooler already built into it. Thanks for the help! This forum is great, I been reading a ton of threads and have gotten a lot of ideas and questions answered without needing to ask.
Thanks, I will post my question in the TV forum. And yes that is a Weber Smokey Mountain Smoker with ribs and 2 pork roasts in there. Its great to be able to throw that right into the TT and have it with you!
Hi jdorant. We also just did our maiden camp out with our 23J. We really love it and we too had concerns after pulling it home the first time but we did okay this past weekend. We pull it with a Nissan Pathfinder
