Bought the 2014 WhiteHawk 30DSQB in Feb '14.....enjoyed 35 nights and 3500 miles with it last year.....we are grandparents with 5 kids and 8 grandkids....we thought they were going to be lined up to go camping with us...it didn't happen...they had their own lives....last October, we worked a deal with our dealer and traded it for a fifth wheel simply because the WhiteHawk wasn't fitting our needs.....but was it a good TT?...most certainly...dealer sold it immediately to some other grandparents who had a family situation where they had adopted grandchildren and we hear they dearly are loving it.

t2daniel: i appreciate your input regarding your 33bhbs. You answered many of my questions. To answer one of your questions, no, I do not plan on towing anything bigger than what we have now with our Explorer. The lease on my car is done in April of 2016, at which point I plan on getting an F150 with the HD tow package. Truth be told, the 33 is bigger than what I want, but we loved everything about it, it will fit our family for years to come, and it is relatively light. You can't beat Jayco quality, so.........Happy Camping to you and your family!!

I have a 21FBS WhiteHawk. There are many things I love about it. Here are issues I've had (bought it last week of January)
1. the furnace quit working and then so did the AC so figured it was the thermostat. It's been worked on twice. Furnace will work when weather isn't too cold and then won't work when it gets cold. Not currently working.
2. window came off track and had to get service call to get it back on. Another one came loose while going down the road but luckily I saw it and stopped. The frameless windows are pretty but not functional.
3. can't get it to drop off the hitch. I'm beginning to think there is something wrong with the trailer's hitch cut rather than the ball. Can't unhitch without help.
4. several of the drawers won't stay closed.
I was expecting some glitches but I have been truly disappointed in the amt. of time I have had to spend addressing issues in these first 5 weeks of ownership and I'll have to go couple hundred miles out of my way to go back by the dealer and try to get issues addressed.

t2daniel is dead on with his review. We also have the 33bhbs and love it. The back bedroom can't be beat. We found that the front bedroom models were just too tight for us. The kids love the bunks and they are plenty big enough for each to bring a friend. The layout works great also. The only issue I have had is that the shower "tile" insert seems to separate from the wall. I've had it fixed once and just found that its starting to pull away again. Probably the extreme cold affecting the glue. It's very easy to tow. I have never towed anything before and was more than a little worried about towing a 37' trailer. I took it out a few times to practice, and was able to become pretty proficeint in no time at all. Just like t2daniel, I started off with an F150. The dealer told me that I'd be fine with it and it felt fine bringing it home an on our first trip. After researching more and listening to people more experienced than me, and not an RV dealer, I learned that I was playing with fire. I upgraded to an F250 gasser and saw a huge difference. Most importantly I don't worry about weights anymore and having the proper stopping power. The 33bhbs was just a bit too much for the F150. Personally I am really happy we went with the larger 33bhbs in the end. I think that we would have regretted not going with the larger trailer at some point. The Whitehawk is an excellent model. Good luck

Love our White Hawk. Very few problems.

Water line on back of toilet got loose and leaked; fixed by hand tightening.

Fresh water level indicator not working. Could get repaired under warrantee, but
probably will not bother to.

Added a digital thermostat, a new regular home style faucet to the bathroom sink and a new three speed Fantastic Vent Fan.

You will definitely need a new tow vehicle for the trailer you are thinking about!

We like our Whitehawk. No real issues, with the exception of hooking to improper power and burning up the converter and microwave. (my fault)

I've done a bunch of mods to it...but I do that with all my trailers.

I have a 2014 white hawk 27rbok - only minor warranty issues so far. The Jensen DVD/stereo is a piece of crap - have to have another one installed. This will be the third one. Otherwise a nice TT.

So far so good. Just a few minor adjustments on our TT. I just don't like it sitting in storage waiting for the next trip. I try to visit it weekly.

Thanks all, I appreciate the responses. My comfort zone is 20mph - I think. Need to experience it to see the effects on the rig.
