Seeing a White Hawk on the highway is kind of like seeing an Airstream - don't seem to see either one very often. We really like our 29REKS and the fireplace comes in very handy on those cool mornings. However, when we went to Florida last February, we stayed in Chattanooga our first night out and it was cold enough that I used both the fireplace and furnace to keep things warm since it was below freezing.

Hitch?

It was rare enough that I had to wave, so if that was you being waved to by a white Chevy with a 28DSBH in tow, howdy!
I'm picking up a new Whitehawk 28DSBH in a few weeks. Wondering what hitch you use? I've got it narrowed down to a few on etrailer.com. Also, do you have a range of tongue weights for yours from empty up to fully loaded at 7500 lbs. thanks for your help.

UPDATE:Have another year plus on our 2014 30DSRE and we smile everytime we walk inside. Have found a few things they could improve on, but we would buy it again in a heart beat.

What would I change? Outlets and switches. Need switch on the bedroom overhead so non NBA players can access the lite. More outlets in key locations like below the pantry / water heater cabinet. A switch to power an outlet near the dining table or couch located by the entry door so you can turn on a light when you come in at nite.

We may not be many, but we are loyal to our brand and choice. Have never talked to another owner who is not happy with their Whitehawk.

I do agree we are few and far between.

New 27DSRL

Took ours back to the dealer for some warranty issues (no big things but it goes off warranty in a couple of weeks so wanted to close those items out). While there, they had a new 27DSRL on the lot. I asked the salesperson to open it for us so we could see the changes. I noticed they switched the hand-cranked antenna to a new Winegard (I assume Rayzar) that doesn't crank. The swivel rockers are now recliners and will solve a lot of problems. Speaking of swivel rockers, they took the frames off the side of the windows and are using curtains--no more damaged frames with the rockers smacking them. The sticker type backsplash has been upgraded to actual tiles. I also noticed shades on the skylights. A lot of minor things that annoyed me seem to have been addressed--not enough for me to buy a new one, but it looks like some customers have spoken and they listened.

We also looked at the new model 2017 27dsrl and all the upgrades, I have done most already to ours so no need to buy new for a few more years. Remember they have to continue to do this to make you continue to buy. Just like the new model cars.

We were in Mackinac City a few weeks ago and actually found 2 other White Hawks in the KOA campground. We walked down to one of them and were talking to the owners when another couple came up and started talking about their WH. Had a very good conversation and everyone was very happy with their choice of the WH.

I've had my '16 WH 28dsbh for less than a month. I've seen, and have been seeing quite a few WHs on the road and in camp sites, over the last couple of years. They may be more popular down in these parts. I had 3 WH dealers within 200 miles of my location, which added to my decision to buy this TT. Then again, I had done enough research that I was convinced that it needed to be a WH or an Eagle TT because I think they are structurally better made than most. So far we are VERY happy with ours, and hope you all are as well!

See you on the road. We're going to Virginia and back soon, and next year will be making a long loop around the Great American West.

I feel your pain when I have to jump up on the bed to hit the light Also why the bright LED's right in the face when laying in bed? Does anyone know of any mods to dim them or swap out for something else for a better bed time reading? Go WhiteHawk's! Only appropriate cause I'm from the Seattle area so go "Hawks!"
