When hubby and I were touring the showroom we decided we liked the (Hawk) side dinette more than the front dinette since it was nice to look out the side window while seated. But it seems most, if not all, of the dealer inventory builds we've seen online have the front dinette. I'm wondering why. I'd love some feedback from Hawk owners regarding why you chose either option, and if you have any regrets on the layout of your choice.
It seems like such a big decision!
I don't have a FWC Hawk but I can give my opinion on a side dinette.
I have a 2009 ATC Bobcat,slightly narrower then a Hawk.
We ordered our Bobcat with a side dinette the second one made by ATC.
We have spent 8 years camping with it from Alaska,2 times,to Yellowstone 8 times and many places in between.
We really like the additional space it gives over the roll over couch.
Also IMO the front dinette makes it harder to get into the bed and takes up space we use for our Truckfridge cooler.
With the side dinette the table can stay up all the time and it also makes it easier to use as a "bed" when down.
Have you looked into the "other" pop up camper,ATC. Check them out. Marty and team are great to work with.
Either company will build you a quality camper
Have fun building your camper.
