Checking out the White Hawk 28DSBH

Hello

I've spent the last few months checking out travel trailers with the bunk house floor plan and around 30' in length. I like the floor plan of the Grand Design Imagine 2800BH but i just don't see the quality or attention to detail that I see in the Jayco. 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

Welcome!!!

I haven't looked that close at the White Hawk, but is there something similar with more bathroom room in a Jay Flight?

Good luck with the purchase!

I've never found bathroom size a big deal on most TT's. Our Keystone Bullet had a smaller bathroom then our current WhiteHawk 32 dsbh, but even with the bigger bathroom the tub, sink and potty are all the same size. Neither is big enough for a party or a buddy shower.

Myself, I'd rather have more space somewhere else if I have the choice. However my wife thinks the bigger bathroom is a great improvement. Different strokes.

We are entering our 3rd season with the 28DSBH and have had no issues with size of bathroom. I am 6'2" and find the shower/tub to be big enough (with the skylight). The outside door keeps the kids from running through the the trailer to use the bathroom as well as provides better air flow through the trailer.

Like someone else said, the amount of room in the rest of the trailer that you get easily makes up for the bathroom. With the deep slide out, it's a large space.

Just took delivery of our 2016 Jayco Whitehawk 28 DSBH. We are a family of five and there is plenty of space. The bathroom is plenty big and the outside access door is great to keep the kids from bringing in dirt throughout the camper. Prior to this we had a 2014 Whitehawk 28DSBH, so we have plenty experience with this floor plan and love it! The 2016's come with many improvements over the previous model years. You will not be disappointed.

The jay flights do have similar floor plans and some do include larger bathrooms. It's a give and take, but I'm interested in the fiberglass sides of the white hawk.

I appreciate the feedback from everyone, this is great info.
I'm moving forward with the 28dsbh.
There is just something about the feel of this TT that I can't find in any other brand.

Many Jay Flights are now available with fiberglass sides for an upgraded charge.
