2016 Jayco North Pointe 375BHFS

Saw this on YouTube and thought I'd post it for you folks who are interested. I really like the way this guy does videos because he spends a good bit of time explaining features, etc.

I saw this same video. He really does a great job and is very thorough. Although he tends to skip the bathrooms sometimes.

Our North Point 375BHFS has been on order for almost two weeks now. Hoping to see it soon!!!!!!

Thanks for posting the link.

It looks like all the slides are the Schwinteck In-Wall Slide systems.
Has Jayco gone away from using Through Frame Electronic Slide System and is exclusively using the Schwinteck In-Wall Slide system for all slides?

On my 2015 Eagle Premier 351RSTS, two of the slides are Schwinteck but the other (the one that houses the ODK, Dinette, etc.) is a different style. So apparently Jayco mixes and matches depending on the application.

Personally, I wouldn't mind learning a little more about the different slide systems along with some analysis on which is better and why.

I find the two Schwintecks are smoother and quieter in their operation.

We have the same slide systems on our 2015 Eagle Premier 361REQS as your 351RSTS.

My guess is maybe the Schwintecks have a size / capacity limit and for larger slides it's more structurally sound to use the Through Frame Slide System. At least that's my opinion and I'm sticking to it

They've made some nice upgrades to the 2016 North Point from our 2015 Eagle Premiers. I personally like the change to the aluminum exterior steps and full exterior LEDs.

I like your opinion but it seems like the slide with the fridge, stove, and theater seats is longer than the other. I've no idea on the weight though.

I also like the aluminum steps. Wondering if they could be retrofitted.

If the slide is of large size, the rack and pinion slide mechanism is used. For the the "smaller" slides, the Schwintech is used. I believe on the new North Point 375BHFS the only one NOT using Schwintech is the couch and dinette slide.

I had the exact same thought.
