We were looking at a 23b as well until we saw the 23j, we are happy we bought ours. We also upgraded from a pop up. The biggest difference is the table is not in front of the front bunk and you also have more counter space. It is a little heavier because of the larger slide but worth the extra weight. We tow ours with a 1/2 ton ford with a 5.4 litre and don't have any issues.

Sawdust,
See what I mean about info. I love this BB!
One other thought about our 23B, the towed length is all living space (+bathroom) which makes it feel like a much larger TT to me. Even though we have 2 Q-size sleeping areas there's still ~24' of usable space. The bunks are also nice daytime storage areas.

There will be only my wife and I and my father with us until he is no longer able to travel with us. I would like to here from anyone who has the 19h or 23b as to what they like or dislike about there trailer. Also please let me know if there are any problems with these trailers.

Thank You

We just upgraded this last summer from a 2010 17z to a 2012 19h. I've been in the 23b we decided it was too big for us and did not like the narrow passage to back bed with cabinets and thought the a/c would have trouble getting back there, or be too cold for us in one bed and and visa versa. We have 2 boys (6 and 7). The 19h is plenty big for us, we can fit all of our food, clothing in cabinets with dish ware and towels without having anything laying on the floor or use of suitcases for 8 nights. I believe the 19h is a perfect size without being too big and can fit in your driveway if long enough without need for storage. Tows great! Not to mention 4 feet shorter will be a lot easier to fit into tight sites and more choices of where you can set up camp.

We love our 19h, the only fault is the low drains for the black / grey tanks. I f you have to use a " blue buddy" you'll probably need to dig a hole to get it under the drains. See the "mods" section for great ideas. Larry

I wonder if the Jayco specs are wrong for the 23B. Its showing exterior length as only 20'11".?

Larry,
Beyond the lift kit, are there other options?
I have a 165 Sport and the drains are very low.
Just got it before putting it in storage, but I expect to run into issues.

Best regards,
Doug

redhorse..... I'm right there with ya!!

KD, your reasons are exactly like mine when we upgraded from the Coleman pup to the X23B. And the "watering the grass" reference definately rings true!!

We had actually looked at the X23B's smaller version, the X20E. But the DW instantly wanted the extra counter space! As for me, this was my first time at pulling a TT of any size and I wasn't sure how it would go. But after a few trips out, I'm more confident now. I'm really glad we went with the larger X23B!

My X19H is a 2013 and is our first TT ever. Aside from having no experience and needing to learn everything about RV's, it has been an excellent TT so far. We love everything about it, except that we can't use it as often as we'd like to. It is relatively user-friendly, has many standard features that make life convenient, and is easy to tow with our 2013 Explorer V-6. Gas milage while towing is worse than I thought it would be, but it wouldn't be an issue if gas actually cost what it should and not 4 bucks a gallon. I can't say enough positive things about our hybrid, Jayco has been outstanding so far, and this forum has been absolutely awesome if not better. If you ever have a problem, concern, question or thought, someone on the JOF will respond to you rather quickly--sometimes in just minutes! There's a wealth of experience and wisdom available here to help you out with whatever TT you decide on. Happy Camping!!

What lead us to the 23B was the ample amount of room. We are a family of three; our son commonly brings a cousin or a friend with us. There is always enough room.

One of the major items that lead us to the 23B was the ability for all of us to sleep in the HTT without having to open the bunks. Our thought was we can sleep on the J-Sofa and the Dinette if the weather is bad or if we are traveling cross country and want to stop to sleep in a parking lot, rest stop, etc without opening up the bunks. The other item we really enjoy is having plenty of counter space.

The AC and heat reaches the rear bunk nicely. The other nice thing about the rear bunk, is it does have a little more privacy. The kids absolutely love it back there.

My recommendation is think about how you are going to use it, where you are hoping to go, and where are you going to put your stuff. Go to a dealership or an RV show that has lots of TT, ditch the sales person and start digging through each trailer, laying in the beds, and ponder the items noted above.
