Another Question for X23B Owners

Hello all. My wife and I were thinking of upgrading to the X23B. The only concern we have is if it is going to fit on our parking pad. Does anyone know the distance from the trailer tongue to the back of the rear wheel? It's a long trip to a Jayco dealer from our house.

Our X17Z fits on the pad very well. We just want to make sure the wheels of the X23B stay on the pad -- there is plenty of overhand room, so overall length is not an issue. We are just trying to avoid having to build up a larger retaining wall.

Thanks,
Joe

From the front of the tongue jack pad, to the back of the rear tire where it contacts the pavement, I get 16'6'' on my 2008.

We absolutely love our 2008 23B. If you go that route, I doubt you'll be disappointed. Good luck.

Bikester - thanks for the offer to come over and measure the distance on yours. Joe talked me into it, although I admit it didn't take much convincing, LOL. Picked up a 2015 23b this morning. Perhaps camp driveway is in the future for tomorrow after a nice long bike ride.

You do any mods to yours?

Congrats on your new X23B!

How do you like the new color design, they look so black & white from pics I've seen.

The first mod I did was add a fridge fan to help it cool more efficiently. My unit didn't come with a power jack so I added one. Even the DW loves it!

So far we really like the new camper. We're really forward to our first trip so we can a better appreciation for all the extra room.
