I like that floorplan Paul213, especially if that is a bike storage entrance at the bunk section.

It was our second choice. Murphy bed was cool and you get a couch (although not at the same time) and it has bunks. For us the X213 won for its cheaper price and lighter weight.
I would have gotten this model hands down if it wasn't pushing up against my truck's capabilities. I could have towed this, but I like a healthy allowance of extra capacity in pretty much everything I buy.

I'm new to the forum. I love your topic. We currently have a 165, but are quickly outgrowing it. We are also considering the X213, 228 and the 22FB. I love the bunk idea. Making up beds every night for 2 kids gets old pretty quick. We have a Envoy- which most likely won't be able to pull any of these. We have recently refurbished an old full sized Blazer. We haven't tried pulling anything with it yet, but are hoping it tows okay. Good luck on your search.

We love our x213...having the couch was a big thing for us....not having one in our previous pup was sometimes frustrating when you just wanted a place to sit or lie down..?.we use the side bunk door to load our camping gear. It was the only layout we liked that worked for us when we were at the RV show.

Thank you!! My husband thinks I'm crazy to not even consider anything that wouldn't have a set bed for everyone. I just hate the idea of having to set up every night and tear down every morning. It's suppose to be a vacation. At least I know I'm not alone. Hope you find something that works for you. Let us know what you decide. We are not quite ready to buy, just starting our research to buy in about 6 months or so.

The couch is a nice feature.

Those of you who own the X213 and have a family of 4 do you feel like you have enough storage space? The bunk area storage is great for loading up, but once the bed is in use do you have a place to store everything? Clothes, kitchen stuff, etc.

I have plenty of space but then my family of 4 spent 8 years camping in a 14 ft travel trailer. Owned the X213 for a year and still empty drawers and rarely use the space under the dinette seats.

This may change over time but I hope not.

I have found the X213's kitchen area to be pretty healthy w/ regards to cabinets/drawers and storage.

It took us two seasons to realize that there is also a storage compartment under the couch of our 213.
