Welcome to the White Hawk family!

We've taken ours out once and are really impressed with it! The black tank flusher was a nice surprise for us as well. We have the two grey tanks as well. Made me wonder a little how they are tied together and if that was helpful or not.

We had someone break in and steal our TV while it was getting warranty work at the dealership already. Ugh. Of course, the dealer was replacing the first TV that didn't work on the trailer. So, the crooks got a brand new TV.

Love the trailer though!

I purchased my first Jayco last year and was surprised with the dealer transportation fees to AZ. At first I thought this was some sort of "bump" to increase dealer profits but after some research learned that the majority of all RVs are either towed or driven from the factories to the dealerships. It's common to see transport fees for autos but rarely in excess of $995. RV transport fees can be two to three times that of an auto. I decided then that if I purchased another RV I would find the closest dealer to the factory, make a deal with them and transport the RV myself. I did exactly that. The Indiana RV Connection is three miles from the Jayco factory and doing business with them was an excellent experience. I realized considerable savings with the purchase price alone. Since my new Jayco needed to be towed from the factory, it might as well be towed by me. The entire round trip cost me $.50 a mile so the one way trip from the factory was completed for $1 a mile which is less than half what a transport company could quote.

I realized a significant savings and in doing so could actually sell the RV now as used and make a profit.

I realize most owners can't travel to the factory to purchase their RVs but I would highly recommend it. The only way you can save more money would be to buy a used RV.

The larger span between the trailer wheels sure does stand out in your photo. bet that helps towing as well...

Great looking setup..

We did the same thing as mrnoby 2 1/2 years ago. We had the time available to drive from CAli to Indiana and back for almost a month AND the savings not going with the dealer transport was enough to pay for the gas for the round trip as well as the hotels and food with the trip there. It also gave us a chance to visit several relatives along the way! woo hoo!

Wow, those tt's sure look nice. My grandkids like the idea of separate bunks in the rear vs the 'jack and jill' we have now. Congrats and happy camping!
