White Hawk TT ?

I was looking at the White Hawk series and am wondering what the owners of these units think about the quality/fit and finish of their TT and also how they like the wider spacing of the axles on this unit. Do you think it make the unit more stable while towing and has there been any axle/ tire issues because of sharp turning radiuses made especially while backing the unit in the tight quarters found in many RV parks.

White Hawk TT ?

Everything is a trade off. We have had no issues at all though.

The white hawks are lighter then their aluminum sided counterparts in the jay flight line. Most, if not all have a large front storage area with a light and a mini fridge. Downsides of the white hawks are less interior height, I believe 3" shorter and no windows in the sides of the slide.

Welcome aboard. We've had our WhiteHawk for a little over a yr. now. We are loving it. It tracks real nice behind our truck, don't even know it's there.
As for the turning in tight areas I haven't noticed any odd tire wear and haven't had any issues with the axles.

We had a Heartland North Trail who piloted the wide track axle idea. Although the trailer was the biggest piece of garbage ever made, the trailer pulled and tracked fantascially. It was a pleasure to tow... when it was on the road. I really wish our 32BHDS had that setup. It would tow much better. The axle setup on the White Hawk actually has me thinking about that one next. Shhhhh. Dont tell my wife.

We have had ours now for about 4 months, and we love it. It tows very easily, easy to maneuver, and seems well built. So far, we have no complaints!

Love ours! Had a water leak issue with the slide not being sealed correctly and needed a new seal around the 1 side of the pass through storage both easy fixes and were fixed at the dealer in 2 days! Other then that no issues planning a 4000km trip for in 2 weeks!

Thus far, we've been very pleased with our WhiteHawk. It tows/tracks very well, and we've not had any issues with backing into tight spaces. The features that sold us on it: a) light weight compared to other TTs, b) big slide with rear living area, c) big windows on slide and rear. Everything worked as it should during the PDI, and on our first camping trip. We leave Aug. 8 for a 5K mile trip to WA and back, I'll try to post about our experiences while enroute. Our thoughts were that the WhiteHawk offered the most value for $$ compared to other TTs we looked at. (And the 2014 WHs have more interior ceiling space, awning lighting, and some other improvements, so you might hold out for that vs the 2013.)

We love our White Hawk! The windows in the slide are large and the lack of windows in the side of it is a non-issue. I pulls very well as did the 26BH we had previously. I have no idea if the wider spacing of the axles has any effect. I have to back down a long downhill drive at my house and that does not feel any different than with the 26BH. I am 6' and the ceiling height does not bother me. What I do miss is the table space under the wardrobes in the bedroom, which you have in your Jay Flight. I have put a 39 inch television in the entertainment center in our 27DSRL, which my DW absolutely loves.

Love our new 2014 Whitehawk. Tows easily, hardly know that it is there. The 2014 model has a radius roof so there is more ceiling height. Only one issue so far with the slide that was given immediate attention by our dealer.

Ours pulls like a dream compared to our 26 bh jay flight. I do miss the night stands and the manual stabilizers other than that we love it. My boys especially like the full bunks(there own rooms).
