I got the Bigfoot level system installed as part of the deal. I think I beat them up a bit on the total price?? You park it, push a couple of buttons, and in a minute you are all set. It's great of your older. Still get a little wiggle, but not much.

$74K? Hummmm, I may have to go back and sharpen my pencil. It sounds like I definitely should spend the extra $$ and go with the Greyhawk.
This unit with the Jayride extras claim to be the best driving motor home. You folks that have one how does it drive? Is it still white knuckle when trucks pass?

Find the discussion about the hellwig springs needing adjustment. I adjusted mine to 2" gap and it made a big difference in handling.

Hi Tawoo,

We looked both the Redhawk and the Grayhawk. We chose the Redhawk specifically because of the things that it didn't have... We didn't want the tank-less water heater, the navigation system or the side cameras, and also didn't want the levelers. They added about a quarter ton of extra weight, lowered the ground clearance, and added the complexity of an added hydraulic system. Not to mention the added cost.

The Redhawk cost us about 12,000.00 less than the Grayhawk, and weighed considerably less.

We've had a leveling system before, and seldom used it... most commercial campground paved or improved gravel sites are quite level, and for the few that were not, we just put a leveler under one wheel.

As for motion, it's not like a trailer where you feel everything if you don't have the jacks down... we've experienced no perceptible movement in the Redhawk.

Whatever you decide, be safe and have fun!!

Same here. Passing semi's are not an issue like before.
