Looks like I am answering my own question, I've read a lot before buying my TT but I was not aware of this site and now I'm full of question, I wonder if I picked the right one...you know that feeling....

The delamination, and the luan styrofoam and luan bonded floor , bent frame ( Norco next gen IIRC ) makes me wonder if I choose the right trailer. Maybe it would have been better to by my first TT builded the conventional way ??

I know the internet can also be misleading, Jayco built thousands of trailer like mine so should I worry to end up with all the problem reported here on the Whitehawk I dont think so but you sure know about the Murphy law....

See you in April my friend not June LOL !

It doesn't sound to me like two equal TTs were being discussed. And only you can balance what's most important to you. Or you could toss a coin.

See you in the spring, lets say late June for our Canadian friends <grin>.

Bonjour from Sask...
Go with the one you like the looks of... I prefer the smooth fiberglass siding. To me it just looks better. It also does not dent in a hail storm the way the aluminum siding does.

You've already bought one, so that's the best one for you!

As for weight, personally I don't much care, as long as I've got the tow vehicle for what I'm pulling. Then there's mileage. I've had a toy hauler that got 10 to 11 mpg with or without a load. And our current TT weighs nearly double what the empty TH weighted, and I get 10, a tad more or less. Biggest factor is wind speed I'm driving in.

Homer, I ordered the 17Z a week ago and am going through the same mixed feelings that you are. I looked at many, considered several different makes and models and now ask myself, did I order the right one? We should probably stop overthinking our decisions and look forward to our first trip in our new trailers. I'm sure we'll both be happy with what we get Good luck to you.

We should stop overthinking period. No matter what we get there is always pro and cons, and thing we learn after the fact , if we decide to buy our model its because it was the right one at the moments. ( im convincing myself at the same time ):-)

We see trouble or bad thing here because we focus on jayco, if we would spend the same time on other brand we would feel the same im sure.

So we will wait for a few trip and see ok ? :-)

We have had both the Jay Flight and White Hawk.

Jay Flight heaver construction. In current models White Hawk about #600 lighter.
(27RLS 2015, vs our 27DSRL)

I miss the night stands under the wardrobes in the bedroom in White Hawk, but I also love the outside fridge.

We are very happy with our White Hawk and expect that it will serve us well until we have to give up camping. We are in our 70's and hope to camp at least another 10 years.

If this is your first trailer, chances are you will discover what you like and dislike about your floor plan and trade in the future. Floor plan is probably the most important thing about trailers and 5th wheels.

Welcome to the forum, you will learn much here!

enjoy your new trailer. Now is a good time to stop reading about different designs. Instead time to plan what accessories you may need and what your first trip will be.
