North Point Comments

For about a year we have been looking at different floor plans. Recently I walked in to a North Point 387 rdfs and really liked it. I am not very familiar with Jayco but feel they seem to last and are quality units. What are the opinions of your unit, specifically the North Point? Does the build seem solid? Does it seem well insulated and maintain consistent temp throughout? Does the 'pleather' couch material resist stain? Being a new build is it plagued with problems as a lot of first time items are? Personally I think it is built very well. Please provide some real life weights if you have any.

Thanks for the replies.

Nobody has any comments about their North Point? Good, bad, would you do it again? I understand they have not been out very long.

I will be honest. We have a 2016 377 north point. This is my 13 rv and never have we had this many problems. The quality and careful eye on details just isn't there. They have used cheaper parts (awnings, slideouts, insulation, frame, brakes, etc.) then in previous model years. Now we love the floorplan, but the rig is 11 months old and we have had brakes, lead springs, tires, outriggers, awnings, and CD stereo replaced. Imagine the time and headaches. Right now are slide out is stuck half way out due to a Schwintek problem. I will say ours was built in the first 3 months of production, so the newer ones may be a bit better. Just beware it is not what we have become accustomed to from Jayco. We love the rig, just being honest about the quality.

We have a 375 BHFS North Point and I have nothing but good things to day about it. We have had it out 4 times now and absolutely love it with no issues. It even pulls like a charm with the MorRyde suspension and pin box. I was a bit apprehensive about buying a FW that was so long, but other than not being able to book some sites, I can't say it bothers me one bit. I would buy it again given the opportunity. Big fan of the auto level as well. If given the choice of getting the extra AC definitely do it. I could not imagine trying to cool with only one. We have two and it takes a little while to cool down, but once it does, it keeps pretty cool. I have read some horror stories about other folks experience, but I feel that we only hear about the bad times and not enough about the good times.

I'll have comments when I get back from Top Sail SP. This will be our 5th trip and longest (11) days. We will be home on Thursday night, so I'll have time to type some more comments. But, so far we love ours. Sure, we've had some problems, but nothing that I would consider major.

Thanks. I will be looking for your comments. Cosmetic stuff not a worry.

We have been very fortunate that ours hasn't had any real problems at all. Ours was built in January of 2016 and it must have been on a Tuesday in the morning .

We love it. Sure, there's the occasional screw that comes loose or a door latch that can be adjusted, but that's about it. The faux leather seems to be holding up just fine with 3 kids and a small dog constantly playing on it. Yes, we would do it again

Our 377 is a very well built camper and has many features that you only find in much higher end models. I have had issues but they are minor and Jayco has the 2 year warranty!
