It is a combination of styrfoam and very thin luan wood. The Jayflight line has plywood floors but I think the Whitehawks have the sandwhich style flooring.

Is this something that could be a cause for concern down the road?

I like Jayco's I-Beam frame, plywood floors and roof. After having my 2016 for a few weeks now I am NOT impressed with their cabinetry whatsoever. The shelves are paper thin, glued joints are messy and the methods in which the cabinets are constructed are very poor.

For example, I just spent a week at my friends house in California. He let me stay in his 2012 Dutchmen trailer. All the cabinets were double wall construction so none of the attachment cleats were visible. The outside corners all had 1/2" radius edges and the shelves were all double wall construction too. Everything about the cabinets in his trailer were far superior to my Jayflight. But his frame, floor and roof structure are not very well designed. If you want the best of both worlds I would spend the extra coin and buy a Nash, Arctic Fox or Outdoors RV. They are in another class altogether.

2016 WhiteHawks now have 5/8" ply floors

Also forgot to mention that JayFlight was the only trailer I could find that offered 80gal of fresh water capacity. I primarily dry camp so this was a big deal to me.

You must be mistaken. Amish cabinet makers are the best!

I have looked at new Jay Flights and their cabinets are not nearly as pretty as my WH

The 27RLS which is the equivalent to my WH is about #750 heavier. It has a pantry which I don't have but much less counter space; and bigger holding tanks.

It is a more heavy duty trailer than mine and may be a better choice for a larger family or back road use.

Jay Flights are also less Denari than White Hawks.
