New to Site looking for info on X23B

Hello all,

I found the site today and joined!
I have a 1996 1007 Jayco that has been in the family since new. We have just past the 22nd year that we have been camping with it! I have always liked the Jayco products. I love the simplicity of the pop up, but now being past 50 I am looking for something with less set up. I have always liked the X23B. I have followed the design changes over the years.

I am looking to buy used X23B around 2012 or up depending on price.

Does anyone know what year they changed the bunk ends to be reverse
con caved? I have heard they did this to help with leak issues.

Also can anyone tell me what are common issues with 23B's when buying used?

By design there will be more possible problems than the simple pop up. any information would be appreciated.

Welcome!

There is nothing special about the X23B from other Jayco hybrids other than it's floor plan. We have the X20E which is a slightly smaller version of the X23B.

I'm not understanding what you mean by the bunk ends being "reverse con caved". We had a '03 Jayco Kiwi 17a for 10 years prior to buying our '13 X20E. Aside from different locking clamps and using wires when the bed is expanded, the door itself is pretty much the same. in 15 years of owning hybrids we have never experienced bunk end leaks.

Common issues are pretty much the same as any other travel trailer. You need to inspect the roof regularly, like twice a year, for dried and cracked dicor. Also all other seams. I treat the seals on the bunks ends twice a year so they remain soft and pliable.

Welcome aboard. I to am not sure what you mean by reverse concave.

Things to look for;

Inspect all joints and the roof. Water is their arch enemy. Look for any signs of water leaks. If you see any run.

Our 2012 has an arched roof. That is good, the older style was flat, and the weight of the ac sagged the roof. And caused water pooling around the ac, and leaks.

By the reverse camber bunks I mean they changed the style around 2012 to help prevent uneven doors that caused leaks. If you take a look at a 2012 Jay Feather brochure on Jayo's site you will see they started using them around 2012. in 2013 they started using magnum truss roof from flat style. You mentioned yours was curved roof on 2012, was yours a later 2012 model?

OK, I sort of understand. Yes, our 2003 had a flat roof. Our 2013 has a slight dome in the roof, flat in the front but gradually domed in the back. I'm not understanding though how that's related to the bunk doors. I have never read about any issues about uneven doors on Jayco hybrids. As I said, we had our 2003 for 10 years and had zero issues with it aside from the dicor on one seam drying out. And that's normal for any trailer. I am aware of a roof issue that caused door leaks on another brand. This was a unit owned by a relative. I do know recall what brand but it was not a Jayco. The dealer ended up buying the unit back from them.

Sorry if I was confusing. Two different topics. They are simply design changes over the years. I am looking to buy a used X23B around 2012 or up. I have seen from Jayco's information that the bunk ends changed around 2012 and the magnum truss roof started in 2013. I have heard that the bunk ends doors were made flat for years, over time laying on them they bowed. Then when you closed them there could be a gap causing sealing issues. They reverse bowed them so when laying on them over time they would stay bowed, or be closer to flat eliminating a gap. At this pointy I am trying to figure out what model year has the best upgrades or features for my price range. I am looking at a 2012 and 2014. Leaning towards the 2014 because it has the magnum truss roof instead of I believe flat roof on 2012, or maybe curved? but not the magnum on a 2012 , it seems to still be the laminated style.
