Our 2015 X213 is home!

Five weeks after ordering our X213 we brought it home today! My Hensley Cub equipped 2012 Nissan Pathfinder pulled the camper superbly the 42 miles home from the dealership. Never even felt the 18 wheelers passing me on the highway. Got 12.5mpg on the way home doing 55-60mph. I couldn't be happier with the setup so far.

We spent about a year looking at campers from all makes before deciding on the X213. Normally my wife, myself and our 2 cocker spaniels will be doing the camping, but the good size 300lb capacity bunks make it inviting for our 22 year old daughter and 25 year old son to join us at any time.

We ordered the camper with the Power Package and 22" TV and Vortex Fan (installed by the dealer). Yellow Sticker weight is 4300lbs.

We have 3 camping trips booked in Mass. and NH an hoping to book a forth shortly.

John

Congrats on the new rig! May your camping adventures be safe and funfilled! I love camping because you can bring the whole family (we have 3 dogs).

Congratulations.

A 2015 X213 makes my 2013 X213 seem old already. Wonder what has changed?

The main difference I could find between the 2014 and 2015 was the trim and awning color, which on the 2015 is dark brown instead of white. I think the graphics have changed as well. The 2015 has LED interior lighting. Not sure if the 2014 or 2013 has this. It also has the LED exterior lighting strip, but I think that was also on the 2014.

We did not get a shower surround, just the wall paper in the tub/shower area. I have seen photos of 213's from various year with the shower surround, and others without.

Also, no black tank flush. Not sure if any model years had that.

Congrats!

We picked up our 15' X213 about 3 weeks ago and are headed out on our second camping trip this weekend.
