Seems like he is in the minority. The White Hawk line appears to be very popular. Sorry you had so many problems.

It pulls great behind our Ford F-150. We go camping with my brother and his wife, they have their own camper, and the kitchen/living area is big enough for the four of us to be in there cleaning up from dinner.

So far my biggest complaint is the side to side movement that others have complained about. I did find a fix though that takes care of 80-90% of the movement. I bought two of these rv stabilizers Universal RV Stabilizer - Valterra 020106 - Stabilizing Jacks - Camping World and place one on the frame in front of the bumper and one on the frame in the front under the nose just behind the a frame. Both of them run left to right and I don't use any on the side frame because the for and aft movement is pretty much taken out by the x chocks. I did read a review that some use one under their slideout to help take the movement out of that, but I haven't found that to be a problem.

Hope this helps
Those stabilizers are very cool. Going to have to check them out.

Has anyone found a set of locking chocks that work on the 24rdb with its wide axel spacing? I was looking at the Equalizer XL (which will work according to my tape measure), but I worried about how it would work when you had to raise the wheels to level the camper. I did find a BAL X-tended Fit X-Chock on Amazon, but I am not sure it will work given its maximum spacing listed at 17 inches.

In anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them

The WH have wide tandems and our BAL 28014 X-tended Fit X-Chocks work even if the tires are on lego-blocks as it fits between the tires ... the ground has no impact. Very happy.

We also use the BAL 28014 X chocks on our 24RDB Whitehawk (two of them) and they work great. We got them from Amazon Amazon.com: BAL 28014 X-tended Fit X-Chock: Automotive
A little advice, use a cordless drill with a socket or you will be there all day extending them with the wrench that is included. I use a cordless drill and socket to lower and raise the corner jacks as well. Makes the setup process go a lot quicker.

Caution - to get a 'pair', order two!

Bal lock arm on mine took almost all the rocking movement. 1 set in one front corner the other set in the opposite corner at the back plus a x tend a chock on one side of my 24rbs made the old crow happy !

The left and right rocking motion is my only real complaint of the 24RDB. So far we really have enjoyed the camper. I will find out tomorrow night if the expense for two RV Stabilizers was worth the money. They had really good reviews and is what was recommended by my local Jayco dealer. But of course their price was a lot more than I could buy it elsewhere (online). I have told them numerous times if they would lower their prices and be a little more competitive price wise they would get a lot more business. I can't see paying 30% more for the same item, and then sales tax on top of that. Camping World is even cheaper, I just wish we had one a little closer.
