My only regrets are of my own making. The White Hawk was and still is the right TT for us. However, we were so excited to make the purchase that we failed to fully accessorize properly prior to negotiation. A lot of these goodies can be had for significantly less money when negotiated into the deal. I lumped in the Reese Dual Cam WDH and max air vent but didn't have enough foresight to consider adding things like a roof ladder, folding stove cover, extra tv mount for bedroom (mine came with one on the exterior), and aluminum reefer panels (god, the black sticks out like a sore thumb). 30lb LP tanks are a must too, but they were already optioned onto my unit. My worst regret is buying into online propaganda & wasting my money on slide-out stabilizers.

Good info!

The manager suggested I buy 30lb tanks from Home Depot or Walmart, much cheaper. I looked online and that made sense to me! I'll need to get a new tank cover though, but not a big deal.

COMPLETELY forgot about the vent covers, darnit!! Need to discuss that one.

Comes with a roof ladder and stove cover, so good to go there.

thanks!

Hi guys,
We just bought a 27DSRL from a dealer out of Michigan and saved a bundle. We started as well with a pop-up, then to a 199 sport and our final now the DSRL. Our first and only shake down was 1300 miles with extreme bad weather. We stopped in Ogala Nebraska and had a tornado watch with just under golf sized hail. 45 minutes of getting pummeled I thought for sure we would have to contact our insurance for damages. Both my Tundra and the TT came through with no damages. Says a lot for hard sided TT over the corrugated siding.

No regrets here. Aftermarket purchases include a taller bathroom faucet, showerhead, X-chocks for the wheels, BAL stabilzer arms, larger medicine cabinet, Samsung smart TV and a few storage totes that fit inside the outside storage compartments for organization and cleanliness.

Went fom Seattle to Ohio last June with just one hiccup that fixed itself.

I was asked to post pics of the replacement medicine cabinet.





We walked through a number of different units in the selling dealer's inventory until we found a close match. Sorry, we not remember which model. The dealer ordered and installed it for us.

My wife and I are in the process of deciding between the 2015 White Hawk 24RKS and the Jay Flight 26RKS. We're leaning towards the Jay Flight because the larger slide and kitchen drawers. The only thing we're questioning is the weight on the Jay Flight. I tow with a 2010 Toyota Sequoia 5.7L with tow package. Max tow rating is 8800 lbs. I see several folks here with Tundras. I think my Sequoia is comparable. I'm right about that?

Well, we have spent 8 nights in our Whitehawk 24FBS, and towed it 889 miles according to the app in my F150.

I talked my wife out of the Jayflight 26RKS. I was tired of towing big heavy stuff.

Lots of things we both liked better about the Jayflight. She liked the center bath, and the ability to use it without walking by anyone sleeping on the couch or dinette. I liked how high it sets off the ground, the bigger slide, more room, etc. The Whitehawk doesn't have many plug ins or small lights as the Jayflight, which is a bit frustrating.

We had 4 of us hunting out of it for 3 days, then just two of us for 4 more days.

Then I towed it the 380 mile trip home today myself. Towed like a dream, again. Did I mention that the official weight of the Whitehawk was 4800 lbs, and the Jayflight was 6200 lbs?

For us, we normally tow a pretty good distance. I plan on keeping my F150 five more years. I'm going to forget all the reasons why I like the Jayflight better every time I hook up the Whitehawk and race down the road with it.
