Considering the Jayco White Hawk 28DSBH

Hi there!

I need a lightweight travel trailer with a queen sized bed and at least two bunks. I'm looking to buy very soon.

I've narrowed my choices to the Jayco White Hawk 28DSBH or the Sunset Trail Super Lite 270BH.

Do any current or past owners have any feedback on the Jayco??

Thank you for your time!

I have no knowledge of the bunkhouse trailers but I really like both of those as you can access the bathroom with the slide in. That's the only thing I don't like about my current trailer is I can't get into the bathroom unless I put the slide out.

The sunset trail has an 80 inch bed, that's one of the main reasons I bought mine. If jayco had an 80 inch bed I'd probably still have one, but I didn't see any jaycos with the 80 inch bed.
74 inch bed always had me feeling wadded up.

Please check our signature to learn what we have. There were two main criteria when purchasing our 'next' trailer: [1] queen bed accessible from both sides and [2] outdoor kitchen. We have an adult son and figured the bunkhouse format would be both good for his/his friends (and a future family). We can easily access the bathroom and kitchen without extending the slide.

We love our TT and wouldn't change a thing - though we did put a full-sized mattress topper on our bed for both comfort and length and it fit perfectly - coming-up against the back of the entertainment center. We also upgraded our tow vehicle since out west we have various mountain ranges with steep/twisty/narrow grades.

Why a 25'? There are length limitations in many State and National Parks ... and more than once our length has made it possible to reserve sites.

We've also been very pleased with both the quality of Jayco and their service, including some warranty work. Since the TT is still under warranty, we are making minimal mods (changing-out sink faucet, shower head, etc.).

We recently sold our 2005 Rockwood 2601 and bought the Jayco 28dsbh right before thanksgiving. We camped in southern Nevada for 5 days during the holiday then parked it for the winter. I think my only complaint is the bedroom doors that we ended up removing. They got in the way more than anything and there is enough privacy from the rest of the trailer with the tv wall. When installed, the doors have to be closed to spin the tv around. Other than that I visit it frequently in my side yard looking forward to spring and our next trip

I do not know Sunset Trail Super Lite 270BH, but apart from 28DSBH I was considering Keystone Passport 2810BH. After seeing Kaystone, I decided to buy Jayco, which I like much better.

I am waiting for MY2017 as I will not be able to use the trailer before September.

We absolutely love our 28DSBH. Plenty of room for our family of 4 as well there is tons of storage. Kids love their own full size bunks that are rated for 600#'s and plenty of room for a friend or two. We've been across Canada from coast to coast over the past 2 summers and only problem I had was a cracked kitchen sink which was covered under the 2 year warranty. Last spring I had the wheel bearings repacked and a quick look at the suspension bushings revealed they were worn badly. Jayco came good on covering the labour and taxes and I covered the parts (I went with brass with grease fittings over the nylon bushings).
I am very happy with Jayco as they have stood behind their product. Good luck with your shopping experience.

We loved our WH and only traded up because we wanted a little more space, especially in the bedroom. In the two years we had the WH we had about 80 nights and over 11k miles, with no major issues. There were a couple of minor things (e.g. broken window shade, etc.) that were corrected under warranty, no questions asked.

we bought the 28dsbh last February. absolutely love it. Love the open floor space, big slide, LOTS of storage, double entry for the kids, outside mini fridge

things I wish they would change:
-longer bed!!! Im 6'3". but I manage..I sleep in a ball anyways.

-No ladder for the bunk beds.. need one similar to the Jay Flight 28BHBE

-Shower is too small.....need a walk in shower like the Jay Flight 28BHBE

obviously I liked the Jayflight 28BHBE...but that model on the lot weighed about 7250#. I wanted a trailer around the 6000# mark and the WhiteHawk 28dsbh fit out needs..
