New X23B Owner!

Well, my wife and I did it. We traded in our beloved 2012 X17Z and bought a beautiful 2015 X23B. While we loved the X17Z, it was a comprise for us as we were towing with a Honda Pilot.

We upgraded our TV in March and started thinking about a dual axle unit. After doing all the research, we decided upon the X23B. Because we experienced the Jayco quality in the 17Z, we didn't even look for any other brands. We knew we were sticking with Jayco and we knew we wanted a hybrid. We are amazed at the room in the 23B -- we could play handball in there.

We bought our new trailer at Bryant's RV in Dallas, PA. Great people there and we had a fantastic buying experience. While going over the trailer with the dealer, I was surprised at how many upgrades Jayco has made since 2012. Interior and Exterior LED lighting, dual electric/LP hot water heater, remote water heater lighting and I love how the spare tire is now lowered like the spare on my truck. The new colors are great, too.

The trailer tracked well behind our RAM 1500 and we got about the same gas mileage as we did with the 17Z.

We are very excited and can't wait to take her out. We are leaving shortly for a 5 day trip to Vermont, so we are counting down the days.

Congrats also! We too have a 2006 23b and love it, one thing it seems I have learned is if you can keep your unit under covered storage when not in use it is huge on their wear and tear.

Congratulations! Looks like a nice upgrade, and should give you all the space (and storage) you need for a long time.

Enjoy!

Thanks everyone. We just finished adding little things to the trailer today to make it ready for its maiden trip. Can't wait.

Actually, we do keep it under a a portable car port. So it is covered when not in use. We (Allamuchy Joe & I) really like the way the cover keeps the exterior clean. And it is nice not to have to wash it prior to every trip out like we used to with the popup we had
