Getting ready to trade!!!!

My wife and I are getting ready to trade our x17z for a larger model. It's down to 26bhsw or 28dsbh. What are your guys thoughts on the 2. I'm looking for pro's and cons.

The x17z is a hybrid. It's ok but living in the northwest we want walls and a little more room. When we got it we were looking for light weight. We got a new TV, so our options are now a lot better.

I'd vote for the White Hawk

Jacko, does you truck tow your white hawk good? We have a 2015 Silverado 5.3. Also what made you go with the white hawk.

I haven't actually towed it yet, I'm talking delivery at the end of April.... It's 1k heavier than my previous trailer, I've invested in a propride hitch and the new trailer also has the wide stance axles... I had no issues towing my older trailer except for passing tractor trailers or very heavy winds, I believe this one will tow better with the setup I have, only issue is pushing the envelop on payload, but should be in range...

I'm going from a Jay flight to a white hawk for the weight savings... From the models we walked through, I feel the white hawk is a premier ultra lite, they use all the same fixtures, cabinets and furniture as the Jay flight, where as other ultra lite models save their weight in those places.

We walked through a lot of models trying to keep an open mind about possibly switching manufactures, there were few that were on par with jayco in regards to materials and craftsmanship imo

We looked at both of these models as well, and went with the 26bhsw. We've only had it a month, but I love the layout. I especially love the L shaped kitchen. The weight was the real deciding factor for us, we didn't want to max out our payload. Good luck on your decision!

We decided to go with the 28dsbh. We pick it up on Saturday next week.

Awesome, congrats on the new trailer! We have a 2015 Jayco and LOVE it. Great features, we were pleased with the value for the price too!
