let say...

Hello guys im new here and im french canadian so...bear with myfrenchglish please

now tell me what you would do, let say you have the choice between the very same flooplan, very same everything, the only variable is the construction, construction of the structure . Imagine yourself choosing between a whitehawk and a jay flight, which one you would choose ?

I've already bought my trailer in oct, ill get it in april .when you wait like that you often second guess your choice, but hey I know that a great camping season is ahead of us, even more since its going to be our first one as new retiree...freedom 55 what a nice concept

waiting for your input guys and happy holidays to you all !

Each have advantages and disadvantages...it's more what fits you that makes it the right choice, as far as which trailer you buy.

I bought a White Hawk to save on weight more than anything. Less weight should yield more mpgs for my TV which over the life of my trailer saves money. Less weight will save wear and tear on the TV and I hope better handling and stability. Plus I like the White Hawk's looks and the packages.

To save weight though, I gave up amenities found in standard trailers such as a larger bathroom, design, like windows on the slide out, larger holding tanks, etc. Larger wheels as well which are much better than the 14 inch wheels that come on White Hawks.

I too think you need to consider the tow vehicle when buying a trailer and the limits it may have as well as the overall safety of you and your family.

Lots of decisions go into buying a travel trailer...consider all of them then buy what works best for your situation...money, family size, tow vehicle, camping style and so mich more.

Welcome, and congratulations on your retirement and new TT! Similar to Blue Deuce, we went with the White Hawk because of the weight.

I prefer the stick frame with the aluminum siding, I know others prefer the fiberglass, but for me there are too many issues with fading, oxidation of the fiberglass, and the de lamination issues.

Up front I will say that I'm not familiar with either TT. Now your opening question was to chose which TT - between two equal trailers. But then the story evolved to pointing out the differences.

It doesn't sound to me like two equal TTs were being discussed. And only you can balance what's most important to you. Or you could toss a coin.

See you in the spring, lets say late June for our Canadian friends <grin>.
