Researching the palomino solaire 213x

I am interested in learning about the 213x. I am comparing to the roo 233s.


Does the center bench on the 213x flip up? It appears as if that could be a great place for dirty clothes baskets.


Has anyone mounted a rear TV on the side of the ward?

The roo233s looks to Spartan while the 213x looks more like a comfortable camper.


I am extremely experienced in towing, trailers, htt and popups.

ID:	64379. This picture appears to be possibly an earlier model or not US. Notice the higher slide out control cabinet. I want to know if that center area of the bench flips up or can get modified. I saw one at a rv show and all the bench and dinette plywall covers had been screwed down.

I'm used to keeping clothes under the front bench of our's and store dirty clothes and extra bedding on the upper rear bunk.

Just picked up a 2015 233s with the new colors. It's solar ready has a black yank flush out. I love the floor plan so much room. And and sit in both campers and then decide. Both nice rigs.

I found this picture on a local dealer's website for the Solaire 213X. Looks like the answer is yes, the center bench does flip up....assuming this is the bench you were referring to? The one in front of the bunk?

We just picked up our Solaire 163X this week - haven't used it yet but cannot wait to do so. The layout is perfect for us (just 2 adults and a large dog camping most of the time.) We loved the room on the 213X but are not interested in adding the extra weight and hassle of a slideout just yet. Give us another year or 2.

***Edit - I googled Solaire 213X but I think the picture is from the 190X actually - I apologize.***

We were going to get the 213x until we saw the roo 233s so much more living space in the roo with the larger dinette slide out tent end are also permanently attached at bottom awing lights on camper side so you can turn on with it closed! Spend some time in both then make your choice.

My tent ends are attached. I do not care about awning lights or black tank flush. Functional floorplans, heavy drivetrain instead of fashionable marketed glampers.

I visualize sleeping for ten: ten to twenty towels, food pantry stocked, dirty clothes, and clean clothes wards bursting out of the particle board sides.
