There are many of us on the JOF that has the White Hawk 28DSBH. Instead of the U Shape Dinette and ladder for the bunk you get a cabinet setup. If your truck can handle it the Eagle 284BHBE, Jay Flight 28BHBE and Jay Flight Swift 287BHBE are all similar setups but have the U shape dinette and ladder. Worth comparing against the White Hawk.

we have one. the dinette hasn't bothered us but we have only camped twice since we got it in october. we asked for a ladder. I have 2 kids 7 and 10 and said how is one of them going to get up there. so they gave us a short ladder that looks like the one that goes up to the roof. we hope to make brackets for it this year but it is light weight and just stored it under the top bunk. would love to know what other people do

We just bought the 28DSBH and prefer the regular dinette. In looking at units we thought the U-shape would be nice but found most very tight (leg room). 2 Adults on each end and 2 small kids along the length is manageable but try and get older kids or adults around it and there is no leg room.

My family of four prefers the dinette in our 28DSBH compared to U shaped. My son who is a tall 6 year-old uses a three-step step stool to hop onto the top bunk. I swear he gets taller every month so soon he won't need a step stool. He'll step up onto the bottom bunk, through his top off onto the top bunk and wiggle himself up. The step stool has other purposes when not being used for bunk bed duty. It also helps me get my bike onto the roof of my Suburban.

Had the 28 DSBH. Made the ladder for bunks. Used 2" x 2" for the rails and 1" or 7/8" wood rod for steps. Mounted with 4 brass L brackets.

We had the u shaped in our previous TT and now have the regular dinette. We wanted the U-shaped, but really we barley use it in the summer and when we do we never have had a problem.

For the ladder, we bought this from camping world: http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...der-60-l/59160
It comes with 2 types of hardware. The hardware not show in the picture is what worked for us. It has 2 brackets that mount perfectly in the space between the upper and lower bunks and then has 2 hooks for the top of the ladder that hook into the brackets. What I really like about this ladder is that I can remove it and place it on the upper bunk when its not in use. I did have to cut a couple inches off the top of the ladder because it was a bout too long. I also can bring the slide in with the ladder in place. I will take a picture next time I visit the trailer.

Size:  17.2 KBHello! Here are some dimensions:

Here is the material from a previous post in this forum from another member that they posted.

Total Height = 51 1/4" (including 1/4" felt pads on the feet)
Total Width = 10"
Rung Width = 7"
Sides = 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" square fir (labelled as 2x2 though...but it's not!)
Rungs = 1" Hardwood round dowel
First Rung = 21 1/4" from floor
Second Rung = 31 1/4" from floor
Third Rung = 41 1/4" from floor

Use a 1" forstner bit to drill your holes, can do 1" depth into each side. Very strong!
Also, round over your outside top corner.
Check your height. It may differ slightly from trailer to trailer. I kept the top flush with the top edge to help avoid any clothing snags or injuries.
All purchased from home depot in the trim/moulding section.

Hope this helps! Cheers! JMR

We bought a ladder like this for our 28DSBH. You simply mount to brackets on the exterior part of the top bunk. You can then slide the top of the ladder into the brackets. The ladder is very light and easy to install or remove. We keep it up on the top bunk when traveling.


The 28BHBE is a very comparable camper to the 28DSBH but it's a lot heavier. You also get the u dinette with it though and I think you get windows in the sides of the slides. Our 28DSBH does not have windows in the sides of the slide. The 28BHBE also has the built in bunk ladder. I think the 28BHBE gives you a feeling of being more spacious inside then the 28DSBH but the 28DSBH gives you more storage.

Everything is a tradeoff. lol
