White Hawk - why can't I keep my mouth shut!!

We have a perfectly adequate Jay Feather, and by "perfectly adequate" I mean "I wish it had a little more room". On our last trip out I made the mistake of turning to the Little Missus and saying "you know, I wish we had a little more room". Once those words are out my friends, you can't put them back in.

So skip forward and we had settled on a Jay Flight 28BHS, having gone all the way through the dealer negotiation process. Yesterday we went down to the dealer to put down a deposit - we're ordering to get what we want - and my wife says she just wants to "take a look around". I don't know if any of you know how that goes, but the nice 7000 lb., 33' 28BHS suddenly became an 8500 lb., 36' 32BHDS and away we went!

Skipping forward again to last night and she discovered the White Hawk 31BH. It's a few hundred pounds lighter than the Jay Flight 32BHDS, but that money It's pricier than the similar floorplan of the Eagle HT 295DBOK. What kind of hoodoo is that?

I know we don't see much from White Hawkers on here - can anyone tell me why they're so expensive? And are they nice trailers?

Tom

This is our 2nd White Hawk. If it’s going to be Jayco, the White Hawk line is very nice. I’ve looked at Jay Flight and Jay Feather, but they use cheaper interior/exterior components.

I really like the Jay Flight aluminum sided option. Such a classic look. White Hawks look great though, but man they're expensive. Guess I'll be emailing the dealer tomorrow. Thought we were done but we're just getting started.

IIRC, when we were looking, the White Hawks were a lighter a less expensive alternative to the Jay Flights! That was a bit over 3 years ago, but maybe times have changed....

I remember the same Oldman and it wasn't that long ago when we bought our Jay Flight...

We passed on the White Hawk and went with the Jay Flight 28BHS for one reason and that was the fresh water capacity. We boondock when we camp and the White Hawk only offered 39 gallson of fresh water I believe and the 28BHS with the Elite package doubles that capacity.

My Whitehawk is pretty doggone solid. It gets towed across cow pastures so I have a cool, dry place to sleep when participating in dirt bike hare scrambles and enduro races. My 24MBH has had no issues in just over two years and I'm a happy owner.

Hello,


I have a 27 DSRL... Its nice.. I am not found of the layout.. My wife loves it.. Pulls well. Good quality. I like the 18's better. Nicer, more practical outside scheme.. and better layouts.
My main issue as another here called out is the fresh water, and grey storage. Lacking compared to other models. I would imagine their research says that people who buy these have a tendency to stay at sites with full hook ups. If you do.. I would recommend.. if you dry camp.. might look elsewhere.

I just went through this last night. We are bringing home the JF 28BHS on Thursday. I believe the main difference in price is the White Hawk is fiberglass construction vs. the aluminum on the Jay Flight.

Yes, I know that story. May the "mistake" of taking my wife to an RV show. What do I have to show for it? A new 28RLS and a new to me F-250 to tow it with.

Enjoy the new TT!
