We're not ready to buy yet either. We are hoping to get one more year out of our current Jayco. Keep us posted too on what you decide.

We have 5 of us in our trailer and we find the storage is adequate. My wife and I use the overhead cubbies in the slideout for anything that can be folded (underwear, shorts, socks, etc). We also have 2 under bed bins that my wife bought. They are about 40" long, 20" wide and 8" high. They slide under the bottom bunk when it is folded down. We put the kids clothes in those since they are little. When we travel, we either throw those bins on the top bunk or slide them under the dinette before we slide in the slideout.

That's a good idea, though I was planning to accomplish the same thing w/ a pair of LL Bean duffle bags.

Thanks for all the great ideas. I'm thinking storage in both models would be fine for us.

I have a question about the outside grill. Most of the X213 I see for sale say they come with an outside grill. I was wondering where it hooks up on the outside of the TT? And do you all use it? It might seem silly but I worry about damaging the trailer with the grill that close. In the past with our Pop up we have always used our Coleman Roadtrip grill and love it.

Does anyone with the 228 have the optional grill? Again where does it hook and do you use it?

I know I'm being a pain with all these questions. Sorry!

Mine came with the grill that mounts to the outsite. I worried about it too but the bracket holds it quite away from the body of the trailer. Far enough the trailer side doesn't get warm.
The grill comes with an adapter / requlator so you can use 1 lb bottles and there is a quick release propane line at the bottom of the trailer so you can use the main tanks. Strangely it did not with a low pressure hose and I haven't got around to buying one yet.

Ours came with a nice looking stainless "grill" that attached to the side of the trailer and hooked into the fitting by the dinette window. It was totally useless, it wouldn't put out enough heat to grill anything. Pitched it and bought a Weber Q 120.

For the 228 there is an optional grill that hangs off a bracket that is attached to the rear of the trailer and plugs into the quick connector located under the rear bumper allowing it to run off the propane tank/tanks already on the trailer. I did not buy the grill so I could not comment on it. I do know you have to ensure the grill is away from the exterior wall and not under the awning otherwise the heat could damage them. Since there is five of us we decided to go with a three burner Camp Chef stove with the grill. The grill covers two burners and we have a third burner open to use with a pot or pan if we need it.
