Mine has 4 vents. Bunk, Back bathroom with a tiny fan and power lift, kitchen upgrade to Fantastic thermostatic vent(option), front bathroom northern breeze fan(standard). Second ac in BR (option) closed my fifth would be vent.

Maxx air II's on all without any issues of ventilation. You could go for the special ones at $80.00 each, but I seen no real sizable advantage between that and the II's due to the three sides.

Is an option now available from the plant to add these? My were all added aftermarket. I also added a clear lid to my kitchen vent since it was opaque white. Nice natural light now with a white cover.

A Maxx air I or Camco might have an issue with volume due to their designs having less open vents. Just my opinion.

Thanks 3's. Our current Rockwood TT came standard with one fantastic fan in the bathroom. We opted to have another one added in the kitchen. Those both came from the factory with a special fantastic vent cover over those. I added the Max Airs to the two additional in the unit.

By the looks of photos I can find online of the North Points (which btw there are not many photos available), it appears that they do not come with vent covers at all. From the dealer spec sheet we are getting a fantastic fan in both bathrooms (bath and a half). No where on the spec sheet was there an option for additional fantastic
Fans nor was there an option for covers. I think I will pilfer the ones off my Rockwood and "transplant" them.

Thanks!!!

Got an email today from my salesman and my unit is due to be off the line and ready to be picked up at the factory on August 11. Has anyone purchased an extended warranty if so for how much and how long?

Nelson,
Congratulations on the new trailer and welcome to the forum.

Regarding the brakes over heating: I am assuming you mean the truck brakes. Here are a couple of things.... How 'high' are your trailer brakes set on the brake controller? You may need to increase that setting to get more 'help' from the trailer's brakes. Also, using the 'tow/haul' setting on your transmission, when braking it will 'downshift' the transmission to make it easier on your truck brakes.

Eric. That's great news! I am very anxious about getting our new rig as I'm sure you and your family is. I ordered mine about 2 weeks to the day after you. I'm very curious to see if they will be coming off the line about two weeks apart as well.

Thanks for the update!

I got word from my salesman that it looks like we may take delivery of our new North Point right around the 2nd or 3rd week of August.


This wait is KILLING me!!! and it really hasn't been much of a wait yet. LOL

We are towing with a 2014 Ford F-350 CCSB diesel so we choose a pullrite super glide hitch and will add airbags if needed. We have to sell my cap and put on a roll and lock tonneau cover.

We ordered it from Rhone's Travel Trailers in Cogen Station, PA which is a family owned dealer. I have bought many vehicles of all kinds over the years and I must say that Guy, my salesperson, has been one of the best sales people that I have ever done business with and I also spoke to the owner a few times and took time to answered all my questions as well. We might not have gotten the cheapest price out there but I felt I was a good deal. The 314 we bought at the cheapest place but everything else about the place including service was terrible.

Looking forward to see all the new upgrades to the 2016's
Courious.. When you order from Rhone's did they make you put 10% down? I've never dealt with them but They are close enough to consider. We have been looking to order a North Point 5th wheel. Problem I run into is the two dealers I talked to want 10% down and made it very clear its non-refundable. I have never had a dealer car/truck/RV ever ask for more than $500.00 and most agree if the unit has any issues on arrival it's completely refundable. I'm not comfortable giving a dealer 6-7k of my money to hold for 8-12 weeks and not have an option to refund it if the unit has any serious issues upon arrival. The reason we are having to order is no one stocks them with generator or generator prep.

Ericrom. I called Jayco directly this past Thursday. I spoke with the sales rep for the NY area. He pulled up my order and told me our 375BHFS is slated to come off line THIS Friday, August 7. Possibly Thursday. They then need to contact the transport company to haul it to NY. Strange that mine may be off line prior to yours. I ordered two weeks after you.

I was originally going to give them $4000 down but ending up doing $3000. I understand why for an expensive fifth wheel because if you cancel that is a lot of money setting on there lot. Talk to Guy Snyder at Rhone's and I am sure they can work with you. Tell him Eric Romberger referred him to you.
