Whitehawk 27dsrl, 28dsbh owners

Hi, I am new to this forum. We are trying to decide between the white hawk 27 dsrl vs the 28 dsbh. We love the 27, but there is a concern that storage will be limited. Would love to hear thoughts from owners of both. We are a retired couple and only have family with us in the summer. We are going from a class c and so happy that we will be back in a TT. That is hard for some people to understand.
Thank you in advance. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Welcome to the JOF.

We are a retired couple and have a 27 DSRL. Front bedroom is separated by the bath from the living area. DW can be in the bedroom watching TV and I can read in the living area without hearing her TV.

The 28 DSBH is a bunk house model design for families with kids. So the concept of this trailer is totally different.

Our 26BH had bunks which we thought we would use for grandkids. However grandkids rarely stay with us and if they do can sleep on pull out couch or in sleeping bags on the floor of the living area.

As far as storage is concerned, TTs have less than a class C, especially if you had a basement model. The 27 dsrl has a lot of storage in the bath, as well as behind the bath on the outside. The 28 dsbh has virtually none in the bath. The entertainment center in the 27 dsrl has shelves below the TV for storage of canned goods and space above for stuff like paper towels and boxed goods.

We got the table and chairs option and take only 2 chairs with us. Much more comfortable than a dinette for taller folks. We also took out the barrel chair on the couch side and our 80 lb Black Lab has his crate in this space. It stands on end when the slide is in. I have put a recliner in place of the barrel chair on the curb side.

One big plus for the 28 dsbh is the 45 gal grey water tank. Wish I had that.

Choose what you need as a couple, not for who may or may not stay with you.

Good luck!

Thank you, so much to think about. The grey tank us also a consideration. We are going to look at the two models again this week.

Our 2014 WhiteHawk 30DSQB will show 45 gallons on gray tank.....that turns out to be 2 tanks, each with 22.5 gallons.....one for the kitchen sink and the other for the bathroom sink and shower....and, that one fills up fast.

That is interesting. Do you have two separate grey tank level gauges? I take it that the tanks are not interconnected. By far most of our water usage is the shower.

We have a 27DSRL- we just bought in March. Very happy with it so far. For us, just right size for 2 people. DW is retired. I will retire in December. Grandson can sleep on the foldout when he comes. The floor would work too. A BH allocates space to the bunks (which for us would not get much use) where the DSRL uses that space for living. Having the living & bedroom separated by the bathroom makes good quiet barrier for TV etc.

We have a 28DSBH and love it. But we also have two kids and another on the way. If you don't have kids I would stay away from the 28DSBH as the other post pointed out. If I didn't have kids I would probably opt for a larger model with out bunks. Something that has a entertainment are in the back and a larger bedroom. Once the kids are gone that is what we would like to purchase.

Yes on the 2 gauges in our 30DSQB......The only way they are connected is they both drain to one central drain pipe that the sewer hose will be connected to......I have not done this because we camp in full service sites but some say that you can leave the black tank valve closed,,,,put the drain cap on....open the two gray tank valves and the 2 volumes of water will level themselves....supposedly water will move from one to the other if need be.
