Whitehawk 29sqb

I currently have a 1207 PUP and my family is ready to move up to a travel trailer. I am looking at the Whitehawk 29SQB, can anyone give me their opinions. I know they haven't been around very long, but, just looking for pros and cons from current owners. My TV is a 2012 Ford F-150 Lariat, 3.5L Ecoboost, 3.73.

I have been looking at it also for the last few weeks. We finally ruled it out yesterday because it is just too big for us.
We like nice cozy campsites and this just would not fit the bill. Other than that, the unit is very nice and if you don't mind 32 feet behind you I think you will like it. I love the outdoor kitchen!!!!!

Good luck

I have been looking at the White Hawks after realizing my TV is just not sized up right for the Jay Flight 29RLS we wanted. We are looking at the 30DSRE, believe that this is what we are going with. I think that what ever White Hawk you go with you will be happy. I have looked at the 26DSRB and the 27 DSRL before settling on the 30DSRE. Only myself and my wife so it fits in well.

Hi Gary,

I have the Whitehawk 28DSBH and I tow it with my 2010 F150. The actaul sticker wt. of the trailer from the factory is 5800 lbs. This is my first large trailer and I wanted to keep the weight as low as possible but still have a good floorplan. I hardly feel it behind my truck and I don't have the Eco boost engine either. It tows easily. Overall the Whitehawk as been a great trailer. I would definitley buy one again. It took me three years and alot of looking at trailers to finally pull the trigger on a unit.

We looked at the 29sqb but went with the larger slide 28dsbh model. Both are great trailers.

I hope that helped a little even though I don't have a 29sqb.

Have fun looking and good luck with your decision

Crewmaniacs,

Thanks for the input. I also have been looking for about 3 years also trying to figure out the best floorplan for my family. I think the reason I haven't pulled the trigger on a bigger travel trailer is I am too picky. Went and looked at the 28DSBH and 29SQB today. Both of my sons went straight to the top bunk in the 28DSBH and knowing they will not sleep together, we looked at the 29SQB. I like where the kitchen is located in the 28DSBH, but not 100% sure I like its location in the 29SQB. We also looked at a Forest River Surveyor Select SV304 and my wife really liked the bunks and the 60 X 80 Queen bed in the front. Decisions, decisions......

lol... nothing wrong with being picky... after all it's your money.

Have you looked at the 31DSLB whitehawk? it has two top bunks in a L configuration almost like the kids have their own room and it has the same kitchen as the 28 dsbh whitehawk but with a U dinette. There is also a Jayflight 29QBH that has a great family floorplan. It's a nice looking trailer with tons of room.

Either way Good luck and let us know what you decide.

Cheers

x2 on the 31DSLB, we picked ours up this spring and love it. We considered the 29QBH, but did not like the layout of the kitchen, and wanted more room for the kids. (3 girls: ages 6, 4, & 6 months) Our criteria was for a U shaped dinette, outdoor kitchen (love it!!) and 3 permanent beds for the kids. The back room is the kids getaway and the slide wardrobe is perfect. Honestly, there is nothing with this trailer we do not like, might be worth considering.

Nice of ya'll (I'm from the South) to throw in another TT to look at, which is good, i like to have options plus I get to go look and compare them. But, do you think I'm okay pulling it with my TV (see sig). TV is 145" wheelbase and the 31DSLB is 34' 11", might as well say 35'. Remember, I do NOT have the max towing package, just the regular towing package.

We are looking at all those models mentioned as well. Haven't been to look at any of them yet but we want a bunk room, bathroom with its own door to outside and the outdoor kitchen would be nice.
