2014 White Hawk 27DSRL

I found this Youtube video this morning of a new 2014 White Hawk 27DSRL.



They go through it really fast and you can't tell a lot about the arched ceiling height. I did notice that it looks like the shower sits directly on the floor instead of being raised like our 2013 model is. My husband and I have wondered why the shower was raised and think it is a potential problem.

The shower looks identical to the one in our 2013 27DSRL. It's a raised pan. The reason for the raised pan & access panel on the front is to have access to the shower drain P trap (which I found loose in ours), as the sewer lines (as most of the water lines in the WhiteHawk) do not run through the trailer belly. The floor of the pan is supported by a couple of wood blocks screwed to the floor and topped with Styrofoam.

I couldn't see the wood blocks under the shower on the new 2014 model, but maybe I just didn't see them. It looked to me like the bottom of the shower was flush with the floor.

Same shower we have in 2013. Only difference in video is the arched ceiling. We are happy with the ceiling in our 27DSRL, since DW is only 5' high and can still reach the light switches on the ceiling. She counldn't on our 26BH Jay Flight, which has a 3 inch higher ceiling. Our shower works just fine.

Our shower works just fine too, but my husband is concerned about the wooden blocks supporting the shower getting water damage. We've owned several travel trailers and one 5th wheel and I've never seen a shower set on wooden blocks before. I can't wait to actually see a 2014 in person. My husband and I are both taller than average (he's 6'2" and I'm 5'7") and I'm definitely interested in seeing how much difference the arched ceiling makes.

The blocks aren't so much there to support the complete weight of the shower installation as they are to dampen the "trampoline" effect of standing/moving in the shower on the fiberglass pan. Theoretically, it should support weight without a problem. Think the blocks are there as insurance and to dampen movement. They're not big, so they surely wouldn't be playing a load bearing role............
