I hope you love your camper when it comes in. I to wanted to put a bike rack on but the bumper only holds 100lbs max. I bet if i go to the PA Camper show i could see everthing but it would be only a 9 hour drive.:zombie:

This is a great link to an article about the White Hawk series, a must download and read for all White Hawk owners, or those considering them.
Talks about the insulation used and the glacier package, the benefits of wide stance axles, construction, slides etc.
Check it out

Ron, thanks for posting the White Hawk info. I have been researching and looking at the 28DSBH and 29SQB for a while now and I think you just sold me on getting one.

Hope it helps, I stumbled across it today and it is the best info I've seen on the White Hawk so far, much better than the dealers brochure, so I thought I 'd better share it. What I thought was really interesting was that they say the wide stance axles result in a smaller hitch weight. I sent an email to jayco asking them to explain further on this and provide a recommended % based on the wide stance axles. I also noticed that the tongue weight/UVW ratio in their floor plans ranges from 9 to 13 %.
I bought my White Hawk 30DSRE in November and haven't seen it since....it does occupy much of my dreams though. The good part of doing it this way is that you research everything and hopefully your ready when spring breaks. I've really got to tell you that this forum is awesome and has solved and answered so many of my questions and concerns. There are people here that have decades of towing experience and are willing to share and advise....we are truly privledged and should contribute as much as we can.

Thanks Katgar05,

I also did a lot of research on many trailers before pulling the trigger on the White Hawk. I can't give you advise from actual use, because I bought it late last year and have't used it....but I have heard from many that have traveled with White Hawk's and none seem to be disappointed. Anyway I am happy with my choice and I think if you go with the White. Hawk you will be too.
Ron

The only "Problem" we've encountered with our 29SQB is the wood back to the dinnette, it was broke when we picked it up so the dealer replaced. We took her out for the maiden voyage last weekend and the back broke loose when someone was getting up from the table. I personally think it should be a thicker piece.
