We have "moved on up" to the X17Z

Hi all.

Just wanted to introduce ourselves. My wife, Theresa and I have been avid campers for years. In fact, we were married at the beach in one of our favourite campgrounds...nice relaxed wedding and reception.

After years of enjoyable tenting, we recently decided to "upgrade" to a newer "operating system". We spent some time looking at various Options and almost settled on a Kodiak hybrid before falling for the Jayco x17z. It was the perfect blend of tent camping and trailer camping.

We quickly purchased the x17 last Tuesday and had it attached to our vehicle last Friday! Our first weekend of camping went great. Having running water, Hydro, and a flush toilet at our disposal was exciting. (I never thought I would find a flush toilet "exciting"). My wife was extremely thrilled that she could actually bring her Keurig camping with her. A fresh cup of coffee in the morning was just what she needed! The entire weekend was spent discussing a whole bunch of new scenarios with our new trailer. We could use electric blankets, watch TV, and a host of other potential possibilities!

Overall, it is very easy to see that we are quite thrilled with our new purchase. We can hardly wait for next weekend for a second camping trip with our new Jayco. I now have the best of both worlds; a new trailer, and a happy wife!

Thank you for allowing me to ramble on.


Bob and Theresa

You will love your new hybrid and will enjoy it for many years. We just bought our 2nd hybrid after 10 years of owning a Kiwi 17a, essentially an earlier version of you X17Z.

Congratulations on your new camper. I have had my 17Z for over 3 years now, and still LOVE it. It is the perfect camper for me.
No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D
