94 • RV PRO • September 2018 rv-pro.com R V M A N U F A C T U R E R S residential refrigerator and a USB charging station. It also comes with three 15,000-BTU air conditioners that can run at the same time without an energy management system when the coach is connected to 50-amp shore power. The garage door can be raised and lowered at one touch on an electrical lift system from Challenger. But standing out in the 4125 is the elegant walk-in shower with a sliding glass door that minimizes splash. The same shower is featured in the high-end Pinnacle fifth wheel. Senior Product Director Mike Aplin said the 4125 has an MSRP of around $120,000. A pair of North Point fifth wheels also stood out for some practical differences. The 387RDFS has a raised rear living area that provides massive storage potential under the room. But Jayco's design allows for the most usage of that space thanks to a large sliding cargo tray that Senior Director of Product Devel- opment for Luxury Fifth Wheels Matt Fisher said is designed with kayakers in mind. The design also allows for easy side access to the storage area. The 387RDFS has a starting MSRP of $87,500. North Point's 385THWS isn't so much a toy hauler as it is a fifth wheel that comes with a built-in shed. Fisher said the unit is designed with the extended stay crowd in mind who might park the vehicle for the summer and want to bring along a lawnmower or bikes or even a large barbecue grill. The 385THWS has a raised rear bedroom that allows for the shed space to be located below. Inside the shed, built-in drawers line one wall and a set of cubbies are overhead. At the front of the coach, a large living room area is open to the kitchen below, although a pair of TVs, one facing each direction, can rise from the cabinet for viewing or to tow sep- arate the two areas. The 385THWS has an MSRP of around $90,000. 2019 Motorized Offerings Although Jayco fielded another solid lineup of Class C motorhomes for 2019, it was a pair of higher-end Class A's that stood out. The Precept Prestige comes in three floorplans that will compete as a higher-end gas coach with a 320-horsepower engine. Each will be 36 feet long. Along with higher-end features such as the Furrion kitchen products and a 21-cubic-foot residential refrigerator, the Pre- cept Prestige models will have a 40-inch fireplace and upgraded hardwood throughout, according to Ryan Eash, director of product development for the motorhome group. Above the driver's area is an overhead bunk on an electric lift system that is rated at 750 pounds. It is a queen-size bunk that can easily support two full-sized adults. The Prestige line MSRP is around $190,000. Embark's luxury line is built on a Spartan K1 Raised Rail Chassis with a Cummins B Turbocharged 360-horsepower diesel engine. The Raised Rail aspect provides plenty of underneath storage space. The porcelain tile that runs throughout the coach is laid separate from the cabinets and is cut to fit around the cabinets and doorways. Embark's three floorplans feature a multiplex control system. MSRP for Embark was unavailable at press time. The Embark Class A diesel pusher is Jayco's top-of- the-line motorized RV, featuring tile flooring, a Furrion Chef Collection kitchen and large bedroom with opposing slides that allow plenty of room to walk around the bed.
