Having owned both a 2016 North Point and now a 2017 Pinnacle, my vote goes for the Pinnacle. One difference which turned out to be very costly for me was the quality of the spring shackles. The shackles on the NP were way too light for the weight of the trailer. They had nylon bushings which disintegrated after 5000 miles of travel. This caused the bolt holes to distort and created wobble in the tires which destroyed all four of them. Of course this occurred while on a trip almost 1000 miles from home. The Pinnacle came with wet shackles by Mor Ryd. Much heavier duty. Also the tires on the Pinnacle were G rated unlike the E rating on the NP tires.

My 2018 came with wet bolts and brass bushings with the MorRyde CRE3000 equalizer. Sounds like it might have changed since 2016. I have replaced the MorRydes with Dexter but the hardware from the factory was all the heavy duty stuff. Not like what you described on the 2016's.

Mine too. The NP and Pinnacle lines were getting very similar. In early build 2019s Jayco took off the metal skirting that wraps all the way to the frame (from the door forward). I had ordered a 2018 which was moved a 2019 model and did not like this change. Apparently many people disapproved of the change so Jayco started building them with it again. I was specifically told it was removed to help justify the cost difference between the two lines because they are too similar. Jayco sent me the sheetmetal for free.
