The 2012 White Hawk is Jayco Inc.’s newest entry in the ultra-light travel trailer market. According to a press release, the White Hawk offers all the features and amenities of a traditional travel trailer, but can be towed by most half-ton pickups and mid-size SUV’s.
“We recognize the lightweight market is more competitive today than ever before,” said Ben Johnson, brand manager for the White Hawk products. “The goal was to provide a unit that could be towed by most family vehicles but offers standard amenities and features not traditionally found on units in this price range. We wanted to make the entire camping experience even more enjoyable for the owner, from towing to set up to take down.”
Jayco said that the 2012 White Hawk has a more spacious living area than other ultra-lightweight units because of a 36-inch deep slideroom, adding twice the amount of expandable space.
Standard features include the Chill ‘N Store outdoor baggage compartment with a 1.5 cubic foot exterior refrigerator; MaxView dinette window for extra light and comfort; Wide-Stance Tracker Axles for more stable towing; extra exterior lights for added safety and convenience; a thermal package with a heated and enclosed underbelly; and a standard premium exterior paint package. Other standard amenities include radial tires; four-inch crowned, fully-walkable roof; marine grade exterior speakers; residential style furniture and carpeting; high efficiency furnace and water heater; and central air conditioning with directional and closeable vents.
In addition, the White Hawk’s “Elite Kitchen” includes recessed halogen lights; designer-inspired kitchen cabinetry; large rounded countertops; deep 60/40 acrylic sink with sink covers; decorative backsplash; 6.3 cubic foot Norcold refrigerator with external temperature adjustments and black metal door inserts; and an Atwood high-efficiency oven.
The White Hawk also carries Jayco’s industry-leading Co-Pilot Warranty offering the original purchaser a two-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. In addition, all Jayco products have been Green Certified by TRA Certification Inc., an independent third- party certification agency. Jayco products have earned top-level certification through the use of sustainable materials, environmentally-friendly production methods, energy-efficient components and reduction of waste.
