I just joined the group today and found your thread. I am interested in the same 2 trailers. The 28DSBH is a bit less expensive than the 28BHKS, but I was leaning to the kitchen slide model. I'm not really sure why but it seems roomier, and I need space for a toaster oven. I'll be watching this thread, so please post the results of your search and your likes/dislikes. Thanks!

We've had the 2015 28DSBH since November 2015. Plenty enough space for two adults, 2 kids, and a large golden retriever. We bought it "as is" off the dealer lot, and only wish we had the booth dinette instead of the table and seperate chairs. Wish we had the extra storage under the booths and another sleeping berth that that would allow. Currently looking for a shade that fits the kitchen sky light, which is very bright, and hot here in Florida. The 2016 model comes with the shade already installed, ours did not.

One other thing I like about the 28BHKS model is the availability of 2 air conditioners. That's not available on the 28DSBH. We nearly melted during the day on our last summer trip. This is another minus for the Winnebago. I would have ordered one of those last year except for Winnebago's absolute refusal to add a second A/C to that model. One unit will not keep up when it's 105 outside...

If you need 2 ACs then sounds like the 28DSBH is not for you.

You can search the forum for info and opinions on the model or feel free to ask specific questions.

The size of the bathroom on our Jay Flight 28BHBE was one of the "clinchers" on the deal for us. We shower every day when we're out, and we're not small people, so having a shower bigger than the one at home is nice. You can now get that trailer with flat sides as an option too. Also, it looks like (from anecdotal evidence) they're putting a vent in the top bunk now; that's something I wish mine had.

The smaller bathroom in the white hawk 28DSBH is what i'm stuck on. The 28BHKS was also on my list but the bunk beds are just to close together, the outdoors kitchen is nice but I want more space for my 2 kids.
So i'm around 80% sold on the white hawk and im looking for advice to get me to 100%.

I maybe staying in the camper for a few months at a time and maybe longer, making some life style changes.

Thank you
Wattage, we bought our White Hawk 28 DSBH last November. Ironically we were also looking at the Grand Design Imagine 2800BH. I thought the quality of the GD was there and the layout and features were ideal. The only thing we didn't care for was the interior decor, it appeared too contemporary for us not warm and cozy. The price was about $6k more than the Jayco as well.

We also looked at the 28BHKS but with a slide on the door side we felt it encroaches too much on your outdoor space (Just my opinion).

After looking for a couple months, the 28DSBH was the perfect fit for us and we knew it once we saw it and walked through it. Good luck!
