X23B Delivered!!!

Hi, all. My name is Rusty, and I'm an addict. I just bought my 4th camper and...it's a brand-spanking-new 2011 Jayco X23B manufactured just 2 weeks ago! <pauses for applause> I've upgraded from a 2008 Winnebago Access 31C which, while a lovely vehicle, was just too darned expensive to operate.

I can't believe I've overlooked such a great design/concept as the Jayco line of hybrids for so many years. Upon delivery, I was only able to spot two minor "irregularities." One: The port fenders protrude slightly more than the starboard fenders. Added a self-tapping screw to each side and problem solved. Two: One stabilizer jack was mounted crooked. I'll just have to live with that one.

I'm looking forward to reading more about your experiences on this forum, and maybe even contributing a tip-or-two as my experience grows with trailering.

Best wishes and prayers for a safe and happy camping season for everyone!

Rusty

That`s a great looking combo, Rusty. And you`ve come to the right place for addicts! A picture pointer, try resizing your pics to 800x600 in the future. Here is a tutorial on posting pics http://www.jaycoowners.com/showthrea...1185#post21185.

Welcome to the forum and join in on the fun!

Sorry. I guess I got a little excited. I've resized and updated my previous post. Hopefully the 800x600 renders better.

The rain here in SE Michigan finally let up for a couple of hours and it gave me an opportunity to go over my new camper with a fine toothed comb. Still in love, but working for Ford, I've grown accustomed to the highest quality and attention to every detail. This particular Jayco doesn't measure up. Two stabilizer jacks are mounted crooked, and the radio antenna is also mounted crooked. The door has noticeable voids of weather stripping. There are some brads protruding from the cabinetry. The JSteel sofa makes a "clunk" as the springs move to support my modest 170lb weight.

Most of these problems are cosmetic, but show a lack of attention to detail and respect for the consumer. I still am very pleased with my purchase, but will take photos of these "things gone wrong" and send them to Jayco...hoping only that they realize that these things are indeed important.

Oh, I forgot to mention that the bathroom door latch and starboard storage compartment latch needed adjustment, and the stove grate was missing some rubber grommets. But...to be fair, my Winnebago (purchased new) also had problems...but those were significant and functional, not just cosmetic.

Welcome to the forum from Minnesota. Hope you enjoy your new Jayco (problems and all) as much as we like our new 242.

No worries on the problems. They all have them. Fixing and improving is part of the RV lifestyle. If RVs were made like automobiles, we'd have nothing to do! <LOL>
