Any thoughts or Input here?

My wife and I are in the process of looking for a new camper. We have I believe narrowed our search down to 2 Ultra Lite Travel Trailers. They are 1) The Jayco White Hawk 25BH and 2) The Keystone Passport 2400BHS. These two models pretty much fit our needs or wants in our next RV. Like anything else there are things that we like or dislike about these two models. We have not yet been able to walk through these particular models as of yet. We have walked through both the White Hawk line and the Passport line of TT's, but the dealers did not have these particular models on the lot (of course). We will have to drive a ways to be able to see these 2 models. Are there any owners by any chance here of these models and if so do you have any input that you could add? I have watched many video's and read brochures on these two models but I'm anxious to see these up close. The White Hawk is just a little heavier but not enough to make a real big difference. Jayco also has the 2 year Warranty which is a real consideration. Any feedback here would be Greatly Appreciated. Thanks in Advance. RR

I would go with the JAYCO unit. I use to own a Keystone product and when looking to replace my 5er; I would not look at any Keystone units. I replaced this with a Cedar Creek from Forest River. Enough said.

Unless you routinely carry bikes, I'd pick the outside kitchen over the outside storage door unless you preferred one brand over the other. I use my outside kitchen ALL THE TIME and love it. I actually ended up giving up the bike door on my "must haves" list once I saw the outside kitchen on my new TT.

ALso I notice the Jayco has an extra storage closet inside, whereas the passport only has a pantry. Storage is worth lots.

Have you seen the Coachmen Freedom Express 257BHS?

Same basic floorplan. A little heavier, but i'm not sure what you're towing with. They use Azdel Composite and Aluminum Structure.

If you want lighter, Coachmen also makes the Apex 257 BHS or the Apex 259BHSS has opposing slides and an island kitchen.

Just some food for thought. That is a very popular floor plan and almost all brands make one.

We are helping my Son buy his first TT and so far with everything we have looked at Jayco seems to have the best fit/finish as well as floor plans in his price range. Plus they have the two year warranty. I have talked to numerous people who love their Jayco TT's.

Also see how large the fresh water tank is. Back when we were looking for a new tt, the Jayco's had small tanks (23 gallons) that was for the 2012 models. Our Aerolite has a 54 gallon fresh. I believe since then they have gone larger. If they plan to only go weekends or use a full service site then the tank size will not matter. But if you looking to take vacations I stay on a site for a week, then something over 40 gallons is a must.

Floor plan and available storage space is also a biggie.

Even after one buys a new unit, one is still looking out for new models, or industry trends. We're on our 2nd hybrid. I retire next year with a planned trip to Alaska while still using our current camper. But, I'm tossing around what may be next. I'm thinking I want to stay under 30' (close to the 26' we have now would be ideal) more 3 season equipped, ducted AC & heat.
Camping right now in SW Ohio and plan to go to Tom Raper RV (SE IN.) tomorrow just to see what they carry.

Happy shopping
