Greetings, First let me say Thanks to all who have shared their experiences with all of us who are on this forum. I have been on here a lot looking for information. I have asked a couple questions and they have been answered. I have advertised for sale a loaded 2015 Hawk which sold quickly.
My wife and I decided to change it up and go to a Hawk Shell. We found that the loaded Hawk did not fit our needs with regards to how we want to use it. We ordered one that will include the Roll Over Couch, Furnace, Camper Battery system with 2nd battery, 160 Watt Solar Panels, 12 volt outlets, curtains, Fantastic Fan and extra roof vent. It will also have the jacks, Yakima tracks only and Strut Roof lift assists.
We are to pick it up in the next few weeks. We now are planning on where to put a few things. The most important is to find out how much space we will have for the ARB Fridge-Freezer. We want to locate it between the storage box under the cab end of the Roll Over Couch and the opposite "wall". This is the wall that the turnbuckle access doors are located.
We will have no cabinets on this wall with the exception of the furnace cabinet at the entry door of the camper,only the "ledge-shelf" that allows the Hawk to rise above the wheel wells. My thinking is that the floor of the camper is 48" outside dimensions. After deducting +/- 3" for the plywood walls and the 2 access doors we are left with 45", again +/-. I can not accurately calculate the deduction for the storage box under the Roll Over Couch.
I am hoping that someone who has a Late model Hawk with the roll over couch will be able to go out and take a measurement and reply with it. It is possible that the side dinette with the storage boxes under it would be the same-I just don't know.
After looking at several images I am guessing that it is somewhere in the neighborhood of 15" - 16". I would want the dimension from the outside of the box to the "wall" opposite..
I added an image for clarity-Basically I just want the dimension between the storage box and the opposite turnbuckle wall. It will be along the wall that the window is on that looks into the truck cab. Please let me know if the measurement includes the turnbuckle door.
It would also be nice to know how much the cushion overhangs the storage box.
Thanks for your assistance,
