Kampfirekid, thanks for the kind words. Like you, we were definitely on a budget, but we got our 2017 DSBH through RVDirect/RVOne for far less than every 2016 DSBH that we saw on a dealer lot, and with several more options included. The '17 does have some really nice enhancements over the '16 model year as well. Might be worth an exploration. Good luck in your TT search and I'm happy to share everything I can about my rig if it can help you in any way.

That's the gray scotch brite. Hopes is ok but not really necessary and really doesn't do anything but make it a tad more glossy. I use hopes on my SS and Quartz counters once in a while. Take a picture of the streak before you sand it, can't imagine what it is, other than perhaps silicone that wasn't cleaned properly and attracted dirt etc. May want to just wipe it with denatured alcohol see if that removes it. Good Luck and keep us informed as to the outcome. Use to know all the folks at LG when they were located here in Az, but, since they moved headquarters to Ga most have moved on.

The Scotch Brite and polish did a nice job!

Are the solid surface tops only an option in the White Hawk line?

No. I know the Eagle line has it. Not sure on others but you can check options lists on each line at Jayco's website.

Solid surface is available anywhere in the country and is an easy mod after the fact. Lots of choices other than LG. Scores of colors, sinks etc.

Glad you were able to easily take care of the issue, that's one of the nice thing about solid surface it's easy to renew if something happens. FYI I would suggest you get an acrylic based product (most are) rather than a polyester based product. Acrylic is what is used in Plexiglas and is more forgiving when movement is involved. That being said I had a number of great installations in large custom class A's of poly products. Poly can give you a much deeper look as you can use far less fillers than an acrylic product.

Happy Camping !

We have been looking at a 28DSBH as well. Thinking of ordering a 2017 from RVDirect. What enhancements do the 2017's have over the 2016's? It looks like the advertised dry weights are slightly higher on the 2017 so something must have changed. I see you are using an F-150 as a TV, any troubles towing your rig with that setup? I think the 28DSBH is at the upper limit for a half ton, but I think mine would do just fine with it. Trying to hear from people actually towing this rig with a half ton and get some real world experiences/stories....

Oldnnew,

There's an extensive discussion of the 2017 mods here.

I've towed twice now, and both times the experience was as I described in this thread. In a word - nice! Not sure what your 1/2 ton can do but the 28dsbh is definitely towable by a properly equipped 1/2 ton like mine.

We bought via RVDirect, PM me if you decide to go that route, but I described that experience pretty thoroughly in this thread too.

Best,

Mike

Oldnnew,

Here's another thread on towing our 28DSBH with our 1/2 ton, as well as more on our RVDirect experience. Hope it helps!

Thanks Mike! Excellent write ups and lots of information! My TV is a 2001 F-150 4x4 with the 2V 5.4. The old 4-speed auto makes the engine work pretty hard under load, but she still gets the job done. Our current trailer is a 2012 Prime Time Tracer 2670 BHS which weighs in at about 5,400 lbs. Going up another 1,000 lbs. to a White Hawk has me a little concerned. I did install good LT Load Range E tires and have upgraded trans cooling, etc. Truck only has 100,000 miles on it and is in beautiful physical and mechanical shape. I would still be under my GCWR and GVWR.
