Great Review 31dslbguy, this was the kind of review we were looking for when we were shopping.
We bought the White Hawk 31dslb this spring, have used it once. My biggest concern was how my 2005 Chev Z71 4x4 would pull it - I was pleasantly surprised. We towed 400km, pulled and handled great. Power was sufficient but only averaged 8 - 8.5 MPG. 100km of the trip was in a very strong (50+km/hr) crosswind and driving rain, still pulled at 95 - 100km/hr with very little waggle to the trailer at all. We did encounter a large hill, made the truck work. If I was hauling through the mountains, I would be replacing my tired old chevy (225,000 km).
This is my fist trailer with electric awnings, and I did have to retract them (main awning and one over the outdoor kitchen) a few times due to wind. They will lift when a wind gust catches them and bang back down, I did not want to find out what would happen if they caught a big gust. With my old trailer and manual awning, I found out the hard way the fabric is the first to go, not sure that would be the case with the electric awning.
x2 on the storage - front passthrough is canvernous. I really have no dislikes at this time, but minor things:
- want for a bit more storage in the bathroom (we use the back room slideout wardrobe to store bathroom stuff)
- higher/deeper drawers in kitchen for cutlery
- BBQ that comes with it does not cook very even, but the quick connect and bumper mount are very convenient!
Good luck with the decision.
