WhiteHawk 2017 model

Hello,

What kind of changes you would expect from 2017 models (WhiteHawk)? 2016 vs. 2015 came heavier, with some nice upgrades. Is it fair to expect no major changes to 2017? I am waiting for 28DSBH model and could not accept more weight than 2016 model.

When to expect that the specs are published?

Thanks,

Artur

Part of the weight gain is because they went to a plywood floor which IMO is a good thing.
As far as possible changes the sky is the limit from no changes to possible discontinuation of the floorplan, which occurs from time to time.

Thanks. I fully agree, new plywood floor sounds like a good upgrade. Based on my limited knowledge about Jayco / RV, I understand that 28DSBH is very popular floor plan, so the chances that they will discontinue this are limited.

My only wish is that they build stronger frames so that the cargo capacities could be increased. My Eagle can barely hold 1800 lbs extra.

Makes it difficult to add a battery bank, ceiling fans, and some of the other fifth wheel options if they are already close to maxed out already.

Sadly the website will likely not update the 2017 specs until August, if past trends continue despite the new model year beginning many months before.

I agree. I did not get specs until late December on my 2016

Sure, dealers should get the specs as early as the system is open to order new trailers, correct? Should be May/June for WhiteHawk based on what happened in previous years...

We were just at out local dealership on Friday inquiring about ordering an Eagle 330RSTS and the manager had to call Jayco to see if we could order recliners (like the 5th wheels already have) instead of the theater seating. He came back and told us that we could because he was told that Jayco is currently moving to 2017 lineups and that at least for the Eagle TT line, they are going to be able to be ordered with almost every option available in the Eagle 5th wheel lineup. The manager said he should have the 2017 specs/pricing sheets from Jayco this next week.


He told me that Jayco said things like larger fridges (12cf and residential) will now be available in the Eagle TT lineup as well as the recliners we wanted and even auto leveling. Color me skeptical (SOP when listening to a salesman), but if true it looks like Jayco could be yet again stepping up it's game big time and the DW will most likely send me to the poor house if all these new options become available on the Eagle TT lineup.


My biggest question is what that will do to the specs in regards to cargo capacity because as Fairenatic mentioned, the Eagle is already below 2000# cargo. Hope it doesn't go down even more due to these changes, or makes the dry weights increase dramatically.

Jayco confirmed that the proto’s of 28DSBH 2017 should start showing up in the schedule next week for April / May production.

We put a deposit on an (already ordered) Eagle HT 27.5 RLTS this morning. The dealer spoke to the rep yesterday and they are 95% sure ours will be a 2017 when it rolls in some time around the middle of May. 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.
