That 4" bed topper that you put on takes away the clearance for the overhead cabinets. I have not hit my head in the two years that we owned our X213. I still want to put a bed topper on it still....I find that the mattress that came with the TT isn't really comfortable, but we have gotten used to it. Congrats on your new TT!

Does your trailer have a sink in the bathroom?

Couple things you might try. After banging our heads a few times we started sleeping with our feet under the cupboards - heads at the open end works okay for us. I found a small tilt and swivel mounting plate bracket at Walmart that mounts onto the existing TV bracket that allows a better all around TV view. Since I pull the TV out for winter storage I also drilled new mounting holes completely through the bottom of the TV shelf and now use long bolts with washers and wing nuts to mount the TV. I moved the main mount base on the shelf slightly as well to improve the TV angles. Seems a lot more secure than the original screws. We find the AC noisy as well, but have the opposite problem as you, ours will freeze us out if we use it too long on max cool settings. You sure that there is no medicine cabinet , ours has one behind the bathroom mirror? Do you know about the storage space under the couch?

Hi Greenma,

Thanks for the tip about the storage under the couch. It's a great space! we are able to fit 5 folding chair, a roll-up table, and a laundry basket in that space!

Unfortunately, try as I might, I was unable to pull the glued mirror off the bathroom wall. I really wanted there to be a medicine cabinet behind it

John

Sorry bout that bathroom mirror...... the lack of a cabinet must be an "improvement" on our 2010 model ! We are out on the road in our 213 headed to Vancouver Island this week. Parked in Okanagon this evening. Pulling the 213 with the new to us 2500 has been a breeze even with temps in the high 30's at times. Will be tackling the Cocquihalla later this week, sure am enjoying the six speed trans on this truck so far. Safe travels everyone.

My 2013 X213 doesn't have a medicine cabinet either. Just a mirror ( although I also tried to open it this weekend too).

I can't figure out the couch storage either. When you raise the seat cushion it forms a V with the back and you can see under the couch but the opening is so narrow I can't see stuffing anything in there. Maybe it's a different model couch.

So far so good with our 2014 x213! I just finished building shelves into the long and deep cabinet next to the bunks- that should help make the space more usable. There is a little storage in the dinette benches too, but not a whole lot.

I ordered a 2" memory foam mattress topper from Costco for about ~$100 including tax, as I found the mattress to be really uncomfortable.

So far have towed about 600 miles experiencing traffic, windy narrow mountain roads, small sites, step hills, etc. while I will not win a race with my set up it has felt stable and safe to me. And BTW I am not racing anyone! 55-60 average speed for me.

Biggest surprise so far: the $20 bridge toll for towing it across!

If you lift the couch into a "v" you will find that the flat board at the front is on a hinge. If you reach inside and push on the bottom edge outwards it will flip up enough to allow you to slide items in, unless of course they "improved" that on the latest models as well.

Hey Camper Dan,

I plan on putting shelves in the cabinet next to the bunks. If you have a pic of your installation I'd love to see it. I also ordered a LED strip to light up the cabinet. If it works well I will order more for the Pantry. Will let you know how it works when I get it.
