New leaf springs on the truck? Or on the trailer?

last pic was site 42 or 44 I think. Lots of room in those and fresh water is right behind me.


Wow, those are some wonderful looking sites I can go there and stay at least two weeks.

We have the 2017 336FBOK Jayco Eagle and have enjoyed it tremendously on all of our trips. We have had few issues and it has plenty of room for my wife and me. We only stay at RV parks so we did not opt for the auto level feature. It is a quality RV for a great price. It weighs approximately 13,000 lbs loaded.

I would take your F250 to a CAT scale and weigh it under loaded conditions (full fuel, passengers). Subtract the CAT scale weight from your F250's specified GVWR..., and subtract the CAT scale rear axle weight from the F250's specified rear GAWR.

The least 'delta' weight of the two is your "available" payload capacity to support a loaded FW pin weight and hitch weight. Average loaded FW pin weights ideally fall in the 20% to 25% range of same FW gross loaded weight.

Also, ignore the published FW UVW's (web site & brochures), refer to the 'as-shipped' UVW's noted on the yellow sticker attached to the side of the FW. I bet the yellow sticker UVW will be at least 400lbs heavier..., possibly more depending on options.

I agree! We had a 2016 F250 Supercrew short bed with 6.7 diesel when we bought the North Point DLQS. Plenty of power but not a good base. We were overweight before we put anything in the camper. Air bags made it ride level but I could feel the camper pushing the truck on curves and when stopping.

Upgraded to F450 DRW, now I can relax.

I have a 2500 Silverado HD Duramax diesel and the payload capacity is only 1835 lbs. Double check your door sticker on the F250.

Tforbes. We are looking to moving up to the Eagle 336FBOK. I have a single axle 2016 Ford F-350 Crew Cab to pull it with. Trouble is, I cannot find this model anywhere near me in Upstate NY. It is a beautiful camper we will be upgrading from our 2017 Eagle HT 27.5 RLTS.

I pull my 315 with my '12 F250 6.7 CC. 2WD LWB 6100# GAWR. Weight (actual CAT scale), on rear axle fully loaded, 4240. Actual weight of North Point 13744. Have air lift bags on TV, Over 30k towing miles, just returned from Rocky mountains 7.5k trip. No issues. As stated by others comes down to your preference, however the more miles and time spent in. RV, the less you will enjoy the light rig. Been there,done that.

We have a 2018 Northpoint 315 RLTS that we are, unfortunately, trying to sell. My husband has been diagnosed with a lung disease and subsequently isn’t able to work as much as he needs to. It is 100% smoke & pet free and is kept in a building when not in use. Please feel free to email us for location, more information and pictures. Gdjjm@aol.com

We have a 2018 Jayco 321RSTS. We use it a lot for 5 to 10 day trips throughout the year. We just finished a 45 day trip through 15 states. We've looked at the Northpoint and Pinnacle but felt the Eagle was sufficient for our needs. (A lot cheaper too!) We did get a washer/dryer installed and I've added a few things to make our life easier but nothing major. We found we had plenty of room on our long trip but we will never be "full timers" so I can't comment on the very long term usability! Of course, we have issues like all of us who RV as we're towing down some bumpy freeways and things shake. I am in the process of upgrading my pin box and installing shocks on the trailer to help smooth out our ride. Our 2017 Ford F250 Diesel handles this trailer with no issues. Good luck...

This is good to hear that it work out for you we love ours and are getting ready to go back out next week for two weeks. I have look at the NP and the Pinnacle but what we have is good enough for my wife and I.
