White Hawk 31BH owner's opinions

We currently have another brand travel trailer and it is just too small for us, and will be upgrading come spring time. We have been looking online and numerous dealers at different brands and floor plans and have narrowed it down to the white hawk 31bh. It checks almost every single box for us except for the kitchen counter space. I've looked all over online and only found dealership walkthrough videos, only owner's comment I've found was someone on here who's suspension hanger already failed. So if you have one, how do you like it? Any input is much appreciated.

29 RKS may fit the need.

We have a 2018 Whitehawk 31RL. I would say the one option that I wish ours did not have is the front cap and windshield. My head hits the blinds covering the windshield when i am sleeping.

While the windshield does look good from the outside, I dont see any real benefit to having it and would prefer it didn't. From what I have found online it is rare to find a 2018 model 31bh without the windshield option and it became standard equiped on 2019 models

Its a big purchase.
Possibly second to your home.
My only recommendation is hire a professional RV Inspector.
Its a small investment and worth every penny!!!

Had our 31BH for a year. First season out this summer. No regrets. All around, a great model. Came from a Winnebago Minnie. Planned to go with another Minnie Plus, until we found the 31BH. A few pics from NC OBX.

How is the airflow / temperature balancing to the back bunk room? I'm a little concerned that since jayco put the thermostat right by the front bedroom door the 2nd a/c there in the master would affect the thermostat's cut in and out and make the back bunk room temps drastically different than that of the front of the trailer. Not exactly something I could check myself on a dealer's lot.

If the vent is not closed off under the main ac unit to force more air flow out of the ceiling ducts, the bunk room runs a little warmer, but nothing major. We keep the main air flow vent closed most of the time and the bunk room is fine, especially with the 2nd ac unit running in the front bedroom. We are all comfortable normally, including 90 degree plus summer days. 2nd ac unit encouraged. Placement of the thermostat is convenient, especially in the middle of the night when you may want to bump temp up or down a few degrees. I wouldn't move it due to that reason. Again, 2nd ac is encouraged if you'll be in warmer climates.

Picked up our new 2019 31bh last saturday, traded in our 26'. I didn't realize how much larger it was until I got it home and parked where the 26' was. Now I'm going to need to get a bigger driveway. I'm going to attempt to convert the spice rack "drawer" to a real working drawer this weekend.

You'll enjoy your new 31BH and adjust quickly to the larger size.
