My experience with the Surveyor was good. It's maiden voyage happened unexpectedly when my job changed before we even got to take it for a night's test run. I lived in it for 2 months and had no problems. I'm an aircraft mechanic by training, but an IT guy these days...(pays better)... and I kept everything in top notch shape. I did have a cracked kitchen sink but replaced it with a stainless steel sink. I think it was a good trailer. The problems I had were pretty minor and it never went back to a dealer.
I researched trailers starting 2 years ago when I traded trucks. I knew with our grand-child population explosion...(6 in 5 years)... that I'd want a bunk model. Being trained in structures I looked at frames, suspensions, construction, and the like more than amenities. I didn't want to get something that was terribly expensive so I tried to get the best made trailer in the price point that I was willing to spend. Do I think the White Hawk is better than the Surveyor? Yes, but I would buy another Surveyor over a lot that I looked at. I had good luck with mine, but I maintain my stuff pretty meticulously... and keep it in covered storage.
