White Hawk 28 DSBH... Soon...

OK, I'm done looking. I'm done comparing. For what I need, what's listed in the title will suit us fine. However, the stealerships seem to want me to pay off that big loan they have on their property all at one time so I haven't actually bought it yet... but I did try. Now the game begins... it's called flinch. If I flinch and call them first, they win, and I pay way too much. If they call first, I'll know that they don't have very good prospects for selling it and I'll probably still pay too much, but not quite as much as in the first scenario. I knew that they wouldn't give much fro my trailer, but the difference was a bit stark. I might as well give my trailer to one of my sons instead of trading it in...... So, while waiting for them to flinch, I have it up for sale. I know this will sound like a bit of a brag, but someone will be getting a TT in first-rate condition if someone buys it. I wish it still fit my needs, because everything is fixed, everything works, and nothing leaks. Oh well........

to my experience, you can always do better selling to an individual than a trade in to a dealer

Yes, I always come out better financially, by selling. However, we have a trip planned in October and we will need the extra space. I'll be trying hard to get it sold so I can work out any bugs in the new one before the trip. This is my retirement present... and we're going to see our daughter, son-in-law, and their kids. We'll be taking them with us for a few nights in the trailer....

I've accepted a good offer for my Surveyor trailer today and that will happen Saturday, so this is coming faster than I thought. My Surveyor is clean and works well, and I keep everything fixed, so it sold to the first looker. Maybe in a couple of weeks I'll be a Jayco owner.

We're going in Saturday morning to look at three White Hawk models. I'm pretty well sold on the 28DSBH, but the wife wants to look at the 28BHKS and the 33BHBS(?)... the one with the rear master and the crosswise bed in a slide. I'm already thinking way more dollars and a much longer trailer than I'm used to with the 33. The 28BHKS is also quite a bit higher but has 2 air conditioners... and I'm all for that... Wish me luck. I think I'm gonna need it...

The 28DSBH bunks are far taller than the BHKS. I liked the shower in the BHKS, but the bunk height was a deal killer. I was not all that big on the outdoor kitchen anyway, so the 28DSBH was our choice. It's about 1250 lbs. lighter overall than the BHKS. After pulling the 28DSBH on several trips ranging in various, significant grade changes, I am glad that we went with the 28DSBH. Your 2500 CTD may not have trouble with the extra 1200+ lbs, but I am certain that my 1500 hemi would not have done well with it.

The biggest draw for the 28bhks for me is it has 2 air conditioners. The 28dsbh is the same size but not available with 2 ACs. I'm not big on either bathroom, and not that hot for an outdoor kitchen. I do like the extra storage under the bunk on the dsbh, even if it's on the street side. I also like that it's 4 to 5 grand less... I can buy a lot of fuel and camping fees for that... We've both decided the 33bhbs is just too big for what we need. It will be interesting to see what the Minister of Finance says when we're looking at them...
