I am anxious as well as what all JAYCO did to make everything liteweight. They used to be the trailer to always fall back on as to quality of worksmanship and reliability. JAYCO always looked out for their products too...

I was reading somewhere (dont even remember the brand name) but the writeup was describing things as large round holes drilled out of the frames to save weight.

On another forum net one of the posts was a factory photo of a complete large JAYCO fifth wheel trailer showing just the aluminum "studs" and supports to hold up the walls etc. It is scary how all of that is suppose to be strong and all.

I'm just getting back to normal after an 8 day round trip to Middlebury, IN to pick up the new TT. 4000 miles round trip, half with the White Hawk in tow.

Quick observations -

Indiana RV Connection is absolutely first rate! This is what all RV purchase experiences should be like.

Very pleased with the White Hawk model. Great build. Quality and workmanship exceeded expectations.

After return noticed minor issue with a broken cable tie at one wheel. Repaired it myself.

Unit tows very well. Encountered 30 mph winds across I-40 in TX, OK & eastern NM. Impacted fuel economy but the ride was stable. I know the hitch was responsible for much of the stability but the wide stance axles didn't hurt.

I was anxious about the 6.5% grades from Flagstaff to Phoenix but all went well.

We now have the White Hawk in covered storage and are preparing for the first trip.

More later.
