X213 Questions

Hi,

My wife and I just picked up our new to us 2010 Jayco x213 yesterday morning. We bought it about 100 miles from our home and towed it home.
It was quite and adventure because about 9 mile into the trip home we had a flat tire on our Expedition. We unhooked on the side of the NYS Thruway, changed (note to self used Travel Trailers don't come with chocks) the rear tire re-hooked and then went on home.

We upgraded from a pop-up and are very happy. I'm sure we will have lots of questions but first is what size sheets are you using for the king bed? We have a memory foam topper, so the bed is thick but seems short? Do they make short King sheets or do we just use a regular one?
Thanks
Tom AKA Brewstercrew

Congratulations on the new-to-you Jayco and welcome to the forum.

Sorry, I can't help with your bedding questions. Hopefully someone will be along that can help you.

First congratulations on the new camper.

It's better to have a flat on the TV than then tt. We had a simular situation a few years ago. Everytime we go camping with my brother's family it's an adventure. He got a flat, at a major interstate interchange just a few miles from home, in a road construction site. And of course he did not have all the tools to change a tire. He was following me, so I had to circle around and pull in behind him.


Double check that you have the tools to change a tt tire. Lug nut size maybe different than the tv. Also your TV jack may not be addiqate. I carry an 18 inch breaker bar and three sockets, with that combo I can change tire on a all my cars and my two trailer. Same combo is in my TV and my every day car. It takes very little space, and is strong when have to jump on it because a tire shop over torqued the lug nuts.

No help with the bedding. We have queen our htt. They are an odd size, but a regular queen fits fine.

We have an X213. We do not use a matteess topper (but have been considering it). We use regular King size fitted sheets and tick the excess under the mattress. Not too much excess but enough to allow for a small topper (maybe a 2" memory foam type).

We have a 2012 X213 and I believe on the 2010 model that the bed is sideways with the window at the back. Our headboard is at the back of the slide with the two windows on the sides and we use King size fitted sheets with a 2" memory foam topper. We tuck the extra sheet under the mattress too. For chocking the tires, we use x-chocks and changing a flat tire on the trailer, I have a tire changing ramp. Congrats on your new trailer

Our 2010 213 has windows on sides of slide with headboard at back. We use a 2 inch foam topper on the mattress. I also have 1/4 inch dense foam "backpackers" pads under the mattress, found this keeps the bed slide much warmer in cool weather.

Our 2012 came with an upgraded mattress, so it is just like our bed at home and a normal king sheets fit fine. Really cumfy to.

I dont think you really needed to unhook the trailer to change a flat on the TV. I certainly would not have on the side of the road. The amount of tongue load on one tire of the TV will be very minimal.

For our X213 I bought sheets, mattress cover, etc. from RV linens & Camper bedding: Sheet sets, mattresses, bedspreads & more. USA made
There's are made to fit RV matresses.

We also bought some from
RV Sheets, RV Sheet Sets, RV Comforters for your RV, Truck, Camper, Motor Home | Advanced Bedding

and then we bought some sleep systems and travasaks from
RVSuperbag.com

Gives you lots of choices!
