North Point 375BHFS experiences

We are seriously considering ordering a North Point 375BHFS and would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone that has/had one (or as I understand it was previously Eagle Premier). All input, the good, the bad, the ugly, would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your help.

We took delivery of our new 375 BHFS in August. My two boys, wife and myself absolutely love it! We were able to get in 4 trips before I had to tuck it away for winter.

It headed to the dealer for some simple warranty items like the keyless entry (it sucks to be honest), the main door was very difficult to open and close, the central vac was improperly installed making it impossible to mount the bag inside the vac unit, the front nose cap was chipped and needed repair.

It is literally our home away from home. There is so much room in it that it doesn't even feel like you are in a camper. I do wish the awning was a bit longer, but we compensate by setting up a large pop up gazebo when needed.

You won't regret the purchase.

Thank you for your response!

We have a 2012 F350 6.7L Crewcab SRW and are a little concerned with the camper's weight. How does your 2500HD handle it?

It does a fantastic job. I was concerned at first with the weight as well, and was going to add Timbrens to the rear. There is no need to thankfully. Hardly any squat at all! It handles perfectly.

Ill be honest though. I have never had it weighed. There is a good possibility that I'm overweight with my setup. I drive within my limits however and am as safe as I can be.

You're 200 lbs dry more then me and on my 2012 f350 crew I squatted a lot empty.
Ready to camp I was nose high and could feel it. Timbrens made all the difference..rides very nice now.
Those Chevy HD's must have some big spring pack.

What in particular makes the keyless entry suck? I also, like CampFlyer, am looking for the pro's and con's of the NP275BHFS. I have a 2016 on order for next spring and am going to be a sponge for information on here. Thanks in advance for your response.

I haven't been able to put a custom code in my keyless entry. I've given up and just use the factory code. The only time I use it is when the dead bolt slightly falls out and locks the door unexpectedly.
It doesn't seem to work 100% of the time. I keep a key in the storage just in case.
So ya.. It sucks.
I would rather not have it.

Klassic, In regards to the keyless entry... Have you contacted Jayco since they boast about their "2-yr warranty" covering it?

How's you Superduty handle the TT? We have the same rig with a LB.

I keep forgetting to tell them about it locking on its own cause it doesn't happen very often. I just don't bother using it.
They would cover it.. They have repaired everything that was wrong on delivery with a smile, but maybe that's just my dealer keeping me happy.
Jayco also authorized a complete brake tear down and inspection because my truck controller won't stop it very well, I suspected the trailer brakes... They are fine. It's Fords built in controller.. It also sucks for 2012. Ford will do nothing about it. So Ford also sucks.

I needed Timbrens. The rig was alright empty, but ready to camp I was front end high and didn't like the feel. The Timbrens made all the difference. Tows nice now.
I don't like the Morride hitch, this rig chucks WAY more then my CedarCreek with a 5th Airbourne.
The chucking is reduced if I fill the water tank.

Also, when in my driveway I have to hook up on a slight angle. The tailgate hits before getting hitched, a real pain in the butt. I have to back in then close the gate and continue. Never had to do that before.

Thanks for the info. Good to hear that Jayco backs up their product.

I will have to look into the Timbrens as the 275BHFS we orders weighs almost 2k lbs more than your 341RLTS.

I bought the truck used with 42k miles on it and it already had a B&W gooseneck hitch in it. I plan on getting the Anderson Ultimate for use with our TT once it arrives.
