Jayco info

I'm seeking information about product satisfaction for the Jayco North Pointe.
We are interested in buying one and think its features are just what we are looking for.
Presently we have a 2010 Wildcat. We like it but what to move up.
In the Jayco, are there issues with the trailer wobbling when setup. Any problems with warranty work getting done.
We have been reading the recent issues with the Ranier tires and feel the experienced owners give great info for which we are grateful.
Any ideas from the forum would be helpful in making our decisions.
Thank you

Jayco info

We have the 377RLBH. With the 6 point leveling system, the rig is fairly stable but I added JT strong arms to the front landing gear for extra stability (I have 3 kids running and jumping around all the time).

I have not had any major issues with my rig. It has not been back to the dealer for anything.

As far as tires, I took my rig from the dealer straight to the tire shop and replaced the stock tires with some Sailun g rated tires. If you have a Wildcat and are members of the FR forum, you know well the "blow max". Rainiers are basically the same tire.

Good luck with your purchase.

I currently have a 2009 wildcat and we are planning to order a 2017 Eagle 293tkds. What model wildcat do you have?
You need to get with a good dealer. The dealer will make or break the experience. Especially for warranty repairs. Jayco won't be of much help to you if you're dealing with a crappy dealer. The warranty coverage is only as good and the dealer.


Thanks,
Earl

Thanks for your response.
We have a 30 LSBS 2010 Wildcat. We are looking forward to trading in and getting a good deal. NADA gives a value of 17,500. Of course, we don't expect to receive that in a trade, but hope to get close.

If you get within the same "area code" of that NADA number, I'll be shocked.

I currently have my trailer listed below what the NADA says mine is worth, and I could actually sell it for less that what it's listed at, and still be a couple of thousand plus above what the dealers have been quoting me.

Thus, I must sell my trailer before I buy a new one.

I thought Jayco was now putting Good Year tires on all the 2017 models?

We just visited a Jayco dealership that had Ranier tires on a 42 ft rig. We question the salesman and he said these tires were made in the USA. Reading the threads about it and that young man was very wrong. Goodyear tires are on option upgrade. HMMMMMMMMM Could be a deal breaker.

I think no matter what brand trailer you decide on, they all use crappy tires. See if you can negotiate better tires into the deal?
