Not sure when this one was built...probably before then since it is a 2015.

Hooyah, Chief.

Knowing that you have the warranty I wouldn't be concerned with the purchase. Check the outriggers and if you see a problem see if the dealer would make the repair before you leave the lot.

Perhaps do some price shopping at the online cheaper dealers and get prices on a 2017.
You'll get a 12" frame instead of the 10", you won't need to worry about the floor supports, it will have the latest version of ground control 3.0 (much better than 2.0), the option of having Goodyear tires, 500:1 slide motors.
Pretty sure the awnings are updated.
And depending on how early the 2015 is that your lookin at, if it has the brown cap it might fall into the paint fading problem (I don't know if it affected pinnacles)

My neighbor's late build 2014 Pinnacle (which is pretty much a 2015) had his Dexter rear axel break loose and the rig headed off into the other lane of the interstate.
Also within the first year he blew three of his China bomb tires too.

What sort of online dealers? I think the MSRP of a 2017 will be about $30K more....


That's some expensive piece of mind.

Did he figure out why the axle broke loose?

I swapped out the garbage TowMax's for S637's before I went anywhere with my trailer (bought used). New tires are cheaper than the damage repair.

He said two springs were broken, but maybe happened when the axel went sideways.
I just saw pictures of it. It happened around 10 hours from home.
He could see and feel something funny going on back there and when he stepped on the brakes the axel twisted sideways and swung the rig into the passing lane.
The guy who towed him off the interstate had a comparable axel at his shop and got him underway the next day.
Lucky no one got hurt.

That must have been one scary scene!!! I would have crapped in my truck. With as many RVs on the road I guess this sort of thing is bound to happen.


My dealer just told me if I still want the 2015 they will reinforce the outrigger braces prior to pick up. Gotta discuss with boss lady this evening but way to go Valley RV in Kent WA!

One of the reasons I went with the new 2015 was the price. I have a budget but paying cash...don't want to finance and I cannot really afford what they want for the 2017. Wish I could...would definitely go with the RV fridge over residential. We are hopefully retiring soon and the plan is not to have any bills.

That said....still having second thoughts. Wife loves the floorplan, as do I. But reading some bad stuff on warranty issues on this forum and the frame issues.....just not 100%.

Don't be discouraged...there are thousands of 2015's out there. My northpoint has no problems but the floor supports. Soon to be fixed.
Plus I got the 7 year warranty for 2k Canadian. Don't known why it's so overpriced in the US (3700 ?)
