Anyone have a 2016 White Hawk DSBH, can you give me a measurement?

My 28DSBH TT is on order. I need the measurement from the ground to the top
of the coupler when level. Ordering a new WDH online. Thank you .

From the ground to the top of the coupler, where the ball hitch goes. I think that is ground to roof LOLOL! I called the dealer and he had someone else measure it and said 27 1/4 inches... but after many mishaps with a previous dealer, I need to be sure. Can't wait to get mine. Which WDH Anti Sway did did you get, if you don't mind me asking? Thanks

That's funny. Apologies, I am on a tablet and it did not show anything after the word top. That definitely makes a difference!

We went with the Husky Centerline. It was great driving home today, no complaints. This is our first TT, so I don't have any comparison.

Enjoy!

No worries. The Husky Centerline, that is one I need to research. I have a TT that is getting traded in toward my new White Hawk, and the hitch on it now is okay, but I hate the anti sway friction bar, can't back up with it on and its not the best. I want no sway LOL That is my biggest fear is sway or getting sucked into big rigs on the highway. Thank for the info and enjoy!

Heck, you should see the truck that pulls the tt!!! It has its own rope obstacle course just to climb in and out.... Lol

Deb,

I have read some good things about the Husky CL. Considered it myself but they only had 1200lbs bars at the time, and I knew we would exceed that with our loaded tw.

Make sure you order the correct rated wd bars for your tt once it is loaded up and ready to go for a trip. The "manufacture" dry tw does not include the weight of the propane tanks or a battery. That alone adds ~120lbs for 2-20lb tanks and a battery, or ~160lbs for 2-30lbs tanks and a battery to the dry tw, even before loading the trailer up with anything additional.

Good luck in the wdh decision!!!

I asked this questions to Jayco. Their response: The spec's on this model for 2016 was 27-1/4" high, it is possible this measurement may change slightly with the 2017 model.

I am going with ProPride hitch when my 28DSBH arrives.

I will check out the Husky as well. Yes, I have to be sure about what the bars are rated for. My TT dry is 6200, max load 7500, plus tanks, battery. So I have to figure 10-12 0/0 of my loaded weight to be added to tongue weight.. looking at rated bars of 1000 I believe should be right. Correct me if I'm not, pleaseeee
