Photos of 2017 White Hawk Line

Friends,

The attached images were sent to me by Jayco in response to an inquiry I made. My wife and I wanted to see what the 2017 upgrades and changes looked like, as we've got a new 28DSBH on order.

Jayco was unable to provide photos of a 2017 28DSBH, but they were kind enough to provide nine photos of the new 24MBH. If you've ordered a 2017 White Hawk model of any kind, you'll get a good sense of what to expect on your trailer by looking at these photos.

Interior: note the new brushed nickel hardware (all handles, hinges and doorknobs, as well as the overhead dinette light fixture). There's a new (shorter) tile back-splash in the kitchen. The wood fascia surround for the slide-out is different (and I think improved). There's now a double bank of overhead LED lights running the length of the interior, as well as slide-out sidewall windows, both of which will make things much brighter. Those slide-out windows were a 2016.5 addition and will improve air circulation as well. The kitchen sink is now a double bowl again (they've gone back and forth on this over the model years), and the faucet is a much more upscale pull down sprayer model. The kitchen counter-top edge style is also more square and less rounded. The smoked glass in the cabinetry, as well as the flooring, also appear a little changed. Lastly, the color scheme in these photos is "canyon," which is new for 2017.

Exterior: the outside now sports new graphics, and the "White Hawk" font style is changed as well. You can see the new television antenna, which appears to be a King Jack model. The aluminum rims are a different style for 2017, and one of the nicest features on the trailer is the way the front diamond plate now wraps around the sides of the A-frame, providing further protection to the front underside of the trailer. While you can't see it in the photos, all locks are now keyed alike as well, and the trailer is both backup camera and "Sway Control" ready (still options, but pre-wired should you want to add the option later).

All in all, my family really likes these updates to the look and functionality of the trailer. It still resembles the 2016 model line which won us over, and yet it feels just a little fresher inside and out. I think Jayco has done a great job. Hats off to them for sharing these photos a little early (according to them, their 2017 White Hawk model year brochure won't be ready until July). Enjoy!

We were told that the Java and Meadow interiors are staying but Havana and Almond are going away. Ours will be Java. Also being told 2017 exterior will be a very sharp looking Silver/Gray. We are really hoping all above plays out and ours is a '17 as it should look really nice behind my black Chevy.
Congrats! I was looking at the same one, don't forget pics.

I just noticed a couple of more modifications in the photos. The edge profile on the night stand tops has changed (just like the kitchen counter). Instead of a bullnose it's an eased edge. A bigger change is to window treatments. Other than the bedroom windows, in 2016 all other windows had valences with side pieces that ran the whole height of the window. For 2017, all windows have a more traditional valence at the top of the window and then actual side CURTAINS, which I prefer. One, it looks less "travel trailer" and more residential, and two, it allows you to draw the curtains over the pleated shades for further privacy/darkening.

Anyone else notice other changes in the photos?

Another find: the wood colored ceiling strips are now white...

2017 White Hawks are Coming off the Assembly Line

We ordered our 28 DSBH on 1 April and were told it might take 10-12 weeks until delivery. Today we learned that our unit has already been completed and is in transit to our dealer. The dealer estimates arrival tomorrow and we'd pick up the unit later next week. If that all holds, it will have been just 7 weeks from order to delivery, a nice surprise.

Once we receive ours we'll be sure to post several interior and exterior photos, as there have been several changes for this model year and there's virtually no photos available yet. If anyone else receives their 2017 White Hawk soon (regardless of model), I hope you'll post some pics too so we can all see how they look this year!
