White hawk or open range

Hello all
New to the forum but not new to camping. We presently have a trail lite camper and we are ready for a new camper. We are looking for a couples trailer and are looking hard at the Jayco Whitehawks and the Open Range travel trailers. We are kinda leaning towards the open range. Any feed back from personal experance would be much appreciated. Both seem like really nice rigs.

Just got a new White Hawk, and I can't find anything to gripe about.... nothing.... nada! Oh well.... life's tough....

Looked at the Open Range trailers but nothing fired my rocket, but that's more personal taste, and nothing to do with quality.

Good luck with your choice.

Open Range all day over the White Hawk, the Jayco Eagle line would be more comparable imho!

When we were shopping it came down to those same two brands. We ended up choosing the open range ultra lite UT2504BH. Five trips out and we have been nothing but happy with it. Tows great everything works flawlessly. So far great product, in the end I believe we would have been happy with the white hawk as well. Both nice trailers.

Personally I like the looks of the White Hawks better.

We bought a 2015 whitehawk. 32dsbh. Did about 5 months of research on all different brands. Talked to a lot of people. In the end it seemed most people are very happy with the quality of the Jayco brand. We just pulled it from florida up thru Tennessee and North Carolina in the mountains and the hemi did a great job. We also do a lot of close by weekend trips and we have not had one issue with the trailer. It's only been a year, but if I had to get another trailer I would definitely go with jayco again. Happy camping my friends

Nearly all, except for the ultra light models of Open Range have a slideout in the awning side. I hate that.

We have a 2013 Whitehawk 31DSLB and have been very happy with it. We liked the layout and the use of space it had.

Bigbear1737, I thought I was seeing double! We just bought the exact same TT, a Jayco 32DSBH 2015. Camping World still had a brand new one on the lot so we got a heckuva deal. I agree, so far, it's fantastic. I'm towing with a 2016 Expedition EL. We haven't taken it more than 50 miles away yet, but next summer the 5 of us are going out West for 3 weeks.

Williamsrx, you can't beat the two ac units. Lol. We love that option. It's a great trailer all around for sure
