Default X230ds

She's had a rough previous owner, but we're making it right.

Great unit you have there, E4AEROSPACE. Glad to see another member with a larger trailer here. A lot of the little 139's. We have a 2013 Funfinder F 210 UDS currently doing a complete go-thru for fall.
Good luck and have fun with your "new to you" X230

My wife did not like the first unit we viewed and it was a 21 footer. She is claustrophobic and it wasn't even a discussion. :-0
The 30' unit purchased is 'just OK' size wise.

The diamond plate around the bottom is a nice touch. It adds a 'skirt' below the actual box and possibly reduces 'wind life' under the camper.

See photos here: https://www.rvguide.com/specs/cruise...76/photos.html

If nothing else, it's decorative and gives the image of a lower center of gravity.

I didn't know it wasn't standard. We're looking to redo the bathroom and cabinets throughout, but 1st a new AC unit.

IF you are referring to the diamond plate around the bottom ... it's standard on every XT276.

The very same diamond plate is also on the inside of the garage section walls next to the floor.
