Picking up our X213 on Monday

With a baby on the way it was time to make the change from tent camping to a TT. Pretty excited to pick up our 2015 X213 and get it set up for camping in the spring.

Good news, enjoy your new baby and the X213. As frequently seen on this forum, I would recommend setting it up in the driveway and taking several days to get familiar with each feature.

Edit: In addition to this forum, I would also recommend contacting Jayco with questions and contacting the manufacturers of specific components if you have questions about their product. (Keep your OEM products literature handy.)

I've been looking and am hoping to buy a 2015 in the next month, do you mind if I ask where you got it from and what I should expect to pay

Back in 2010 we really looked hard at the X213's. Perfect size for us and some hard sides to get away from the tent trailer. This 24-foot trailer will tow great behind my F150 truck as well... Back in 2010 the older X213s had problems with the large rear bed drooping down over time when extended out and as with any large door like that always are prone to water damage when they slightly warp. You heard of some water leakage with the Bicycle door as well. These problems was suppose to fixed with the 2010 models... Really havent followed up on any reviews since then. Everyone that has one really likes theme.

I love this photo from the X213 Brochure info

Being a Ham Radio - Computer setup guy this trailer would allow to mod out the two bunk beds and set that room up for small storage area just inside the "Bicycle Door" and a larger angle desk w/hutch setup to make us an great office area. There is a bunch of used area behind the 12-inch wide raised area that supports the lower bed. there is just the two of us.

I even got as far as drawing up my changes to it haha...

I would cut down the length of the side desk top length to fit... All doable... even room for a office printer setup...

As it turned out we never did it and still are running the roads in our OFF-ROAD POPUP camper.

Enjoy your new X213 trailer...

Thanks all.

Agc23, the optioned MSRP was $28k and we picked it up for just under $22k plus taxes.

We'll spend the winter getting it set up and plan to get a few trips in before the baby comes in June.

Thanks stickyTaco

We figured we would be under $25k out the door. We were pretty much set on the x213 but starting to think that the White Hawk 213mbh might be a better fit. My kids are 11 and 9 and I feel we'll grow into the 23mbh much better especially since we'll be traveling wih out pet as well

I now the 23mbh will be more
