Jayco x23b purchase????

In the "process" of purchasing my first unit and wanted some thoughts from current owners. I plan to purchase a 2013 Jayco X23B....I feel that I've done my homework on price but wanted some thoughts. The price offered is $18,420 the MSRP from dealer is $20,871 from NADA is $22, 300...The unit has a Customer Value Package (13.5 A/C, ABS Gas Bottle Covers,Dual 20 lb. Lp tanks with reg, Microwave, Spare tire and carrier, Water heater bypass, 6 gallon water heater, 6 CF Refridgerator double door, 22' TV and Aluminum rims) included and the dealer is also throwing in all of the hitch work, filled propane tanks, hoses (water & sewer), 30/50 adapter, an Interstate battery, wash, waxed and detailed. Can anyone tell me if I'm getting a good deal? I "think" that I am. Thanks!

I can't tell you if it's a good deal price wise, however we have an x20e and love it very much. We just went through our first severe thunderstorm with no issues or concerns.

We have just purchased one also and we are really enjoying it I purchased the same package as you and the total was just about what you are paying. The only thing I have noticed it is a little heavy we have a 2013 tundra and it pulls it fine but you know its behind you. I think you will enjoy it and good luck.

Small world, we pull the x20e with a 2013 Tundra as well. We hit the weight scales on our latest outing and we were good on axel weights with the WDH, however the truck is overall overweight, so we need to transfer about 500lbs of "stuff" to the camper (camper was 1,000 underweight so we have room to adjust).

We picked up our 2013 X23F in March for $20K even, including the 4 pt Equalizer hitch, EBC installed, state sales tax and the same packages/upgrades you mentioned, and the power tongue jack and power awning. I spent a bit of time playing the "saleseman games" but was fortunate to have 3 Jayco dealers w/in a 150 mile radius of my house. Good luck in your purchase and I know you will love that model (it was going to be our 2nd choice, but the F won out with the extra bunk!)

I just brought home my 2014 x23b and was originally looking at the 2013 until the last minute. I will say that your numbers are in line and even a little bit lower than what I was looking at. In my case I had some $1500 of add-ons and they had some $600 of PDI fee. With the 2013 I think we were right around 20-21 all told and i ended up another 1k over that when I moved to the 2014.

We bought the 2012 at the local 2012 camping show. We paid $16,XXX for ours. Only difference that I see is we had to purchase a WDH for an added cost, but they did install it with purchase.

Are there any difference in the 2013 and 2014?

There were a few. The 2014 came with an electric tongue jack. It also had a different layout in the front that made it much easier to add my dual batteries and battery box. The awning came with an LED light vs a single outside porch light. You can see the pics of it here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/7508761...7634236817199/

It's not all stock as I had them swap out to a fantastic fan, add the max air cover, add the awning over the slide out, and install my own battery box with dual 6V trojans.

Thanks for the pics "Mit". We own a 2011 and I see a few differences.
1) Missing outside light - replaced w/ under awning LED lights (strip?)
2) Outside speakers are raised up higher under the awning.
3) Slide-topper (option?)
4) shallow shower pan (I think Jayco took a step backwards on this one)
5) rearranged the tongue layout
6) electric tongue jack (maybe this makes up for the shallow pan)
7) dining table legs are different (that's gotta be an improvement)
8) the stabilizer jacks look different, a scissor jack now?

What's the box next to the 110 outlet outside the front door?
What's the black box next to the bath sink?

hope you enjoy yours as much as we enjoy ours!
