Keystone Hideout totaled...New Jayco White Hawk
We bought a '15 Keystone Hideout 280 LHS in early June. On the second weekend we had it out, we got hit with ping pong sized hail. $2100 damage to the truck. $9400 to the trailer...Totaled it. We bought a new 2015 Jayco White Hawk. I wanted to get a fiberglass sided trailer to alleviate the risk of hail damage.
Keep in mind these trailers are the same floor plan. The Jayco pulls so much nicer. My 2014 halfton cc sb chevy handles this new trailer so much better.
Tongue weight: 900 lbs
Dry: 6600 lbs
Tongue weight: 650 lbs
Dry: 5500 lbs
This goes to support all those who preach to the newbies to keep the trailer weight at or below, (preferably below) 80% of the GVWR for truck and trailer. We are on our first family week long vacation. The drive last night was much more enjoyable with the Jayco than it ever has been with the Keystone. The keystone was a great trailer, the wife likes it better. There are more features on the Jayco, but we paid $$ to get these features.
Overall we are very happy with the Jayco.
Just my $.02
