We have a 2012 that we love. Would be nice to have the bigger tanks that the newer models have though. And maybe a bit more ground clearance.

Congrats on your new X213, we absolutely love ours and I am sure that you will love yours too. I too find that it tows very well behind my truck. I added a carpet runner in front of the couch, door mat and a shoe sweep mat at the bottom of the stairs. Oh I also bought a RV mat. Goes along way to keeping the trailer floor clean. Enjoy your trips!

We pick up our 2015 next weekend. One thing I noticed in pics is that the 2015 has arms on the couch whereas prior model years don't seem. I'm not sure if the arms can be made flat in anyway. If not, they'd get in the way of anyone but small kids sleeping there.

Does your '13 have LED lighting inside?

I picked up a 2014 last week and just got back from a weekend "test" and loved it. A couple of questions though...what is the little dome thing in the ceiling g with what looks like a male co-ax connector? Also there are two little brackets in the ceiling near the front of the slide. Any ideas?
Thanks

That is a 12V socket for lights and fans commonly found in Pop-up campers. Here is an example of a unit that can plug into the socket.

The brackets are to hang the light/fan onto.

The "arms" on our 2015 are removable. They are held in place by a strip of fabric and Velcro.

What do you mean removable when the slide is in? Also, do you have pics of your couch? I have not seen a pic of a 2014 with arms on the couch and I've seen pics of all the interior colours. I'd like to see if they differ from the '15.

And if you have LEDs as well, doesn't sound like much is different between '14 and '15.

Does anyone with a '14 or '15 have a medicine cabinet? Seems they used to put them in but in all the pics I've seen of 14/15, it looks to be just a flat mirror.

I will take some pics and send next time I have the slide out (can't at home). We got truffle interior, which came with dark brown vinyl couch and booth seats. Also came with a natural toned leaf pattern that I find pretty ugly- oh well!

As for the removable couch arms: the one closest to the slide you have to take off to bring in the slide, just a rectangular cushion wrapped in a flap that attaches with Velcro.

I don't know of any difference between 2014 and 2015. Seems like there were more between 13 and 14, but not many between 12 and 13? Maybe a 2 year upgrade cycle?
