Redhawk vs. Greyhawk - Difference List?

Hey Gang,

Is there a definitive list of differences between the Greyhawk and Redhawk? Something concise and to the point? Going through the standards list provided for both models online leaves much to be desired.

Thanks much.

Biggest difference is no second airconditioner option on Redhawks. Not even offered. Also no leveling Jacks (option on Redhawks standard on Greyhawks). Rubber roof on Redhawks not one piece fiberglass like Greyhawks. JRide on Redhawk Vs JRide Plus on Greyhawk. Many little things but those are some of the bigger ones that stand out.

According to the specs the Redhawk also has less insulation in the roof? Perhaps a thinner roof? Formica instead of solid surface counters? There is a relatively steep price difference between the two models, but a Redhawk w/ slide toppers included for 10k less then a Greyhawk one wonders where the 10k went.

Oh, no heat pump on a Redhawk.

It'd be nice to have a full list.

Just a few more things. The running boards are larger where you step into the cab. The two privacy doors in the Greyhawk are wooden pocket doors instead of accordian type in the Redhawk. I don't think the Redhawk has the camera's in the rear view mirrors. The lack of a second air conditioner alone would would put me in a Greyhawk.

The 2nd AC isn't a option on the Redhawk 26XD or Greyhawk 26Y. Shorter coach.

The second a/c isn’t a option on ANY Redhawks. Just to be clear. You are correct that shorter Greyhawks don’t offer or need a second a/c.

The key here is no Redhawks can be optioned or purchased with a second a/c. Only larger Greyhawks offer that option.

Others...plastic toilet, different window shades, different front door (doesn’t have frameless window or window shade), countertops, cabinets, front seats, tv’s, outside baggage doors, running boards, rubber roof, and on and on.

Nothing wrong with a Redhawk. It’s just different. I do think they are a bargain for the price. It would just be silly to buy one and then try and upgrade it to match a Greyhawk. That would cost more than just buying a Greyhawk to begin with.

I understood that differentiation though it wasn't clear in my response.

Yes, and you save some weight there too. The industry standard is anything over 26 foot needs a second AC, but they sell plenty of the bigger ones without it.

Those 2 models are 28' and change. Cutting it close.
