What a great idea and much needed storage. Unfortunately I don't have the skills to be that handy - especially cutting thru the exterior. Most I might be able to pull off is access thru the inside. I really like what you did.

Picking up my 2014 Jayco WhiteHawk 23MBH on Saturday

I can't figure out why Jayco didn't put a storage door there on the Jayflights. The White Hawks have one there and also at the back seat of the dinette. That will be the next one I install.

I didn't notice that until I found a picture of it on the 2015 models. It's a great point, seems Jayco could have easily provided this bit of extra storage. Did you relocate your spare tire to the right slightly covering the ladder to achieve this mod? Spare looks centered of the outside shower and ladder with little or no room.

Other thing I find odd is there is no locking access panel protecting the fresh water access. (maybe I'm just not seeing it)?

Sorry just saw this. We bought it new and bought it new in feb of 14. We have not gone on long trips yet. Just 50 miles to lake. We have stayed at the lake for a week though and have another week coming up

The whitehawk does have exterior storage with afoot on the back. The fresh water input is not locked. We use the equalizer wish with sway control and love it

I've had my 2015 Whitehawk 23MBH since June of 2014. We've put just shy of 9000 miles on it in that time frame and I have only had one problem..... The little drawer beside the Murphy bed won't stay closed because the latch broke. I do hate the bathroom faucet and how small it is but not enough to replace it yet. I did replace the shower head with an Oxygenics unit which has made all the difference in both pressure and water usage. I use the Andersen WDH and it is very simple to use. The best feature for me is that you can drop the Murphy bed with the slide in if catching a few winks at a truck stop or rest area. You just have to keep the legs folded until it gets near the couch and then drop it otherwise it will get stuck on the slide.

@powerstroke: never thought of that with the bed but it it is a good idea. That way you don't have the put e slide out but still get to use almost everything (would be tough to wash dishes but everything else is accessible. And with the rear door if you need to get past the dinette but can't then there is another way to access the bathroom and the rear bunk

Believe it or not the kitchen area is still very usable with the slide in. It's tight right by the drawer area but with the way the sink is angled it's easy to jump in for a rest stop lunch without too much trouble. We still use the main door to exit in and out of, but you just have to make sure you don't step on the edge of the slide as there is only about a foot of floor available between the slide and kitchen drawers. I'm a larger individual and I don't have any problem moving through with the slide shut.

Yeah true I realized that after you pointed it out. I guess what I meant for us was the cabinets since that is where we store the cooking utensils. However the great things is that the refrigerator is totally accessible with the slide closed
