New proud owners of a X213 Jayco

My wife Amy and I are picking up our new 2014 X213 at Camping World. I'm very new to camping, in fact I have never camped in a trailer. My bride how ever has years of experience from her previous marriage. She has been praying hard about this for years because 3 weeks ago I suddenly caved in and decided to look at campers. I'm not much of a trailering guy. I've had bad luck towing snowmobile trailers in the past so I just left it to my buddy's. One thing for sure I was not going to tow a 36 footer! The camper I picked out was a 17' hybrid. I was so excited I couldn't wait to tell her. One look and she said no. Mind you her last trailer was a 36'! Dejected and frustrated I was about to hang it up, but honestly I really was excited about these campers. I mean WOW these things are very cool. Soon after that she found the X213 at a local Camping World. We went to look at it and I was hooked! it's 23' tongue to tail. It's not so long I'm intimidated and stressed pulling it, yet it has enough room to camp comfortably our family of 3+friend. The boy always has to have a friend with him. I have spent a lot of time here and learned much.

Pictures will be posted later!

OK I now have the trailer and noticed it's a 213X on the VIN, but some of my paperwork says X213. Is there a difference between the models?
We bought our TT from Camping World in Saukville WI, It was hands down the best experience My wife and I had purchasing. I can not say enough awesome things about our interactions with them.

It pulled awesome. Still have to work out the communication with the bride but all in all I think this camping thing will work for us.
I don't know what brand WDH I have, Camping World installed it. One thing I know it wasn't cheap!

Congrats! You will love the X213, it's a great size for us since we now have 3 grand daughters to take camping with us. At least we should be able to take two of them this year.
