Any Jayco White Hawk 24RDB Reviews?

We are thinking of buying one. Any pros & cons?

We passed on on this model (assuming you are looking at the 2016s) for two reasons; 1) we got a screaming deal on the one we did buy. 2) when the slide outs are both retracted in, it is a pain in the butt to squeeze past the island. We tried to think ahead to a time when we may be travelling a long distance and have to pull up at ta rest stop or wal mart parking lot just to get some sleep. We didn't want to have to extend the slide out for just a quick sleep break.
However they are great rigs, we love our White Hawk.

We bought this model last fall and love it. Our only frustration is the amount of movement from side to side once the trailer is set up. Still working on that.

Different model, but like NVGun40 - a thumbs-up on WhiteHawk! Especially like ability to get into bed from either side AND it accommodates a queen-regular topper.

We have the 24 RBS - great trailer, love the counter space and larger bath. That side to side moving once set up is annoying - if anyone has a fix, I would love to hear it

We just picked up our 24 rdb last Friday, and we are very excited. There are just the 2 of us, and we love how the 2 slides give a large feel to the main area. We have a small problem with our water heater (not working under electrical power, only on gas) but we are confident that can be fixed after our "shakedown" trip this weekend to test everything out.

I'll keep a lookout for the side-to-side moving problem.

We had a White Hawk for two years. Nothing but problems. Shop around.

We bought the 24rdb this summer and we love it. It is just my wife, myself, and our little dog. It is the perfect size and has a lot of storage. My wife has never camped before and was very apprehensive but she loves it and looks forward to the next trip. We have been out in it twice so far and are leaving this week for a third trip. 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

I have tested them in the driveway and they worked really good but this coming week will be their first test while we are actually camping.

Without them, with the four corner jacks down and the two x chocks in, I can grab the ladder and with very little effort shake the camper and make my wife scream at me, I'm bad. With these two RV Stabilizers in I have to really work to get any movement and it is very little. I think you would be happy with the results.

Respectively disagree, very happy with ours and would select our model again - use it year-round and having a fantastic time taking weekend getaways!
