Default Seeking Fun Finder X-139

I'm in the market for a 2006 or newer, Fun Finder X-139. I will drive pretty much anywhere in the U.S. to pick it up. Any leads, please comment or email me at jmac215@gmail.com

jmac215, I'm thinking of selling my 2005 T-139. Are you set on an X-139? (And did you find any current ones for sale on SmartRVguide?) Let me know if you might be interested, and I'll gather photos and info this weekend.

I'm definitely keeping my options open.. Is the T139 the same size? Looks like it might be... I'd be interested in seeing pics, for sure. If you want to email me my email is jmac215@gmail.com Thanks for reaching out

The T139 and X139 models have virtually identical dimensions. The tanks are bigger on the X version, especially the black water tank. My 2003 T139 had a 6 gallon black water tank, and my 2012 X139 has a 25 gallon black tank.

The construction is different, too -- many of the pre-2008 139s were built with wooden frames and aluminum skins, insulated with fiberglass. The newer models have aluminum frames and fiberglass skins, with styrofoam insulation.

This has been educational- thanks for asking & replying.

I'll be meeting the owner of a 2013 X139 tomorrow to complete the purchase. After researching so many different trailers for the last month- all these various features, specs, capacities, layouts etc. are a blur, so this is a good reminder.

If all goes well I'll be using it as a "base camp" for whale watching in Baja this winter, and assisting a friend who runs a camp at one of the lagoons.

To be continued...

2013 models are well built -- aluminum frame, lots of insulation. The only downside is that the back wall is taken up with a huge "makeup mirror" vanity area -- as if campers really need a serious area to apply makeup!

I tore out the whole back wall and put in cabinets instead. It was a big project (time consuming) but not technically difficult -- you need a table saw and a screwdriver, and that's about all. (You could even do it with a good pull saw by hand, really.) Scroll down through this blog post and you'll see the cabinet project:

We bought a 2006 X-139 last summer. I've enjoyed seeing the improvements that many folks have posted and we have come up with some of our own. We feel this is the perfect size camper for us, but now looking for a bigger tow vehicle, possible an SUV.
ProfDan, we have the vanity and i like the blog post with the cabinet installation. We have added some hooks to our vanity mirror area and use bungee cords to hold some campstools and TV tray table in that space when we're rolling. The little table top is handy for extra cooking surface, but there is usually "stuff" in the way!
