We plan on removing the table & chairs & setting up our dog crates in the dining area. We'll eat seated in the rockers just as you plan to do.

Isn't the power cord detachable? Is it stored behind the spare tire carrier?

Thank you for the information!

We really liked the White Hawks and eagerly waited for our local dealer to get them in. They arrived back in November and while we really liked the 26DSRB we were dissapointed with the actual weights. Jayco calls these ultralites, but the lightest of all the modedels was around 5800 lbs UVW. Just too much for my Tahoe. Had to start search over and ended up purchasing an Aerolite. Really like the Aerolite so far but have only owned Jayco before and am a bit apprehensive about another brand. Wish the White Hawks were true ultralites and that they had a few smaller models.

The spare tire can be shifted over to either side. It's attached to the bumper with u-type bolts.

That's good to know. DH hasn't even checked that out. Come to think of it I did notice it looked different today, when I decided to pull out the power cord and plug it up. Thanks

I'm not sure about it being detachable. We've owned 2 Jayco's previously, they had to be pulled out of a compartment, stretched out as far as they would extend. The White Hawk is basically the same. Maybe someone else could answer your question. I always hated the chore of stuffing them back in that little compartment. I have read where others have changed there's to a different connection. To answer your question, the compartment opening is directly behind the spare tire. DH thinks it's no big deal, maybe that will be his job from now on.

Captain Justice, I will answer your question. We were happy with the deal we got. We went to the same dealer that we have always used. We traded our 07 27BH Jayflight. We paid $16,995 cash, plus our 6 yr old TT. We had several issues with the Jayflight. As far as the deal, good or bad we are happy with it. We'll see as time goes how the White Hawk holds up. mrnoyb, The chairs can be moved anywhere,just like in your home, but the table is bolted to the floor with screws, so it doesn't fly around when traveling. I'm sure it could be removed.

Sorry I made a mistake. Our Jayflight was 5 yr. old not 6. We purchased it March, 07.

Are the table & chairs truly free standing? Can they be moved or removed entirely if the owner chooses to do so?

Thank you!

The 16,000 could not have been on the new one, right? Do you mind sharing the price you paid, before your trade, on the new White Hawk?
