Not mine, but here's a 2017 White Hawk

It's a 27DSRL for sale at Thompson RV in Iowa. Found it while trolling the internet for White Hawk pictures, since I won't be picking up my own unit until about 25 May. Anyway, there are 46 pics and you can definitely get a sense of what your new White Hawk will look like. This one has the "Canyon" interior.

Sad to say, these are still shipping with the analog Coleman-Mach thermostat, so there's one upgrade I can already plan on. All-in-all, however, I like the look of the unit. I REALLY like the way the diamond plate wraps around the A-frame now, it's both practical and good-looking.

Okay, here are some 2017 28DSBHs

2017 Jayco White Hawk 28DSBH Stock: TT0065 | Alex RV Has fiberglass cap, "Canyon" interior

http://www.rvt.com/Jayco-White-Hawk-...901410-UX75507 No fiberglass cap, "Shadow" interior

Neither has a closeup shot of the delivered weight tag - too bad. Was hoping to see how/whether weights have changed.

I just got a super quick sneak peak at our 2017 DSBH at the dealer while it was in the middle of PDI. Didn't get to inspect things very closely and was only inside for about 30 seconds, but from what I saw it looked amazing! The new graphics on the outside also looked really cool. We are picking it up on Saturday so I will post pics of the trailer and the new specs. We ordered ours on Feb. 15 and were told 6-8 weeks. It ended up taking 13 1/2 weeks, which at first we were a bit frustrated with, but it all worked out well because we ended up with a 2017, which I was not expecting...

I like the changes they made in MY2017 and can't wait to pick up the trailer in Aug. In the meantime, would be great to know whether the weight changed significantly? I do not think so, as they increased the weight significantly changing from MY15 to MY16, but you never know. Tongue weight is my biggest concern, but as long is it below 700 lbs dry, I should be fine.

Got my White Hawk!

Well, here she is, pulled her home yesterday from Albany, New York, 103 miles in rush hour traffic. Pulled like a dream, we were blasted by semi-trucks the whole way and not an ounce of sway. Used the Andersen WD hitch and Timbrens and was able to relax and enjoy the drive. I do need to upgrade to LT tires next. After that, I should be all set.

For some reason I can only attach one photo at a time, so I'll post more when that gets sorted out. One more photo coming up next for my friend Artur, however...delivered dry weight.

This looks very good! Thanks for the photo of the yellow sticker. I am glad they did not increase the weight!

Thank you!

Pulled our camper home on Sunday with a 40 mph crosswind. It lets you know it's back there. Wouldn't want to drive in that crosswind for more than a couple of hours. I agree LT tires would help a lot. Also have pulled it with out a crosswind and it does great. I've pulled heavier trailers in more windy conditions, but a camper is basically a big sail and it's different. Everyone's gotta know there limits. If your driving in questionable conditions, slow down.
