New White Hawk At Home

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.

Awesome, glad to hear about towing well. We also have a Whitehawk and it is good to see other owners.

Good Looking Trailer.

Glad to hear About the towing too. We picked ours up Saturday morning but the dealer is only 8 miles from our house. Just not sure that was a long enougth distance to get a good feel for how it tows.

My unit came with a black tank flush. I was pleasantly surprised that this feature was included. There's no mention of a black tank flush in any materials I had. Jayco must have decided to include this item after the marketing for the model was finalized.

Does your unit have 2 Grey Water Tanks? When we did our walk around I was surprised about the 2 tanks. Not quite sure about the capacity of each tank.

I only have one grey water handle so I assume it's one 30 gallon tank.

Thats a nice looking trailer! I really like the White Hawks.

I'm wondering why you opted to travel that far for the trailer, wouldn't it have been more cost effective to purchase it here in AZ?
