First Look at the Jayco 38FBRK

Main Differences Between Pinnacle vs. North Point

While we often have the same or similar floor plan between North Point and Pinnacle, the new 38FBRK floor plan is so far exclusive to Pinnacle.

Let’s see some main differences between Pinnacle vs. North Point. Unlike North Point floor plans, Pinnacle has 102 inches of body width (while North Point has 96 inches) and is characterized by luxury features such as a molded rear cap (while North Point has a flat wall), power cord reel (while North Point has a detachable cord),  a full body painting with the Diamond, Sand and Steel Paint options, day and night shades (while North Point has only nightshades), a smart TV mounted outside, between high-quality materials and assemblies throughout the RV.

New 2024 Jayco Pinnacle 38FBRK: The Exterior

For those familiar with Jayco, the new Pinnacle 38FBRK fifth-wheel floor plan surprises us on the exterior with two electric awnings with integrated LED lighting.

The first 15-foot awning is located at the left of the entry door. It covers the entertainment center with speakers, an outside 32″ 4K Smart LED TV, cable and power connection, and an external grill quick connection classic of Jayco. The second 19-foot awning covers the entry door up to the front of this fifth wheel.

Also, you will find exterior compartments, including a pass-thru compartment for storage and 360° security cameras if you choose to add this optional kit.

The climate Shield designation allows you to extend your time enjoying this RV outdoors, even in cold climates. Plus, there are 120V heat blankets on all tanks and 12V heat tape on the freshwater line, so you won’t need to worry about burst pipes.

Let’s take a first look inside the new Jayco Pinnacle 38FBRK, and let me tell you about some of the changes Jayco has in the Pinnacle line for this year.

Inside the 2024 Jayco Pinnacle 38FBRK: A Review

The new 2024 Jayco Pinnacle 38FBRK 5th wheel travel trailer offers a sleeping capacity of up to 4 people, one of the largest living rooms on the RV market, a spacious walk-in closet prepared for a stackable washer and dryer combo in a front king master bedroom with bathroom en suite. Let’s review the Jayco Pinnacle 38FBRK floor plan.

A Luxury Master Bedroom

I definitely love this floor plan. For me, having the kitchen and the bedroom on opposite sides of the RV is a blessing. So, that is one of the things I love the most about this new Pinnacle floor plan.

As you can see on the floor plan above, to the right of the front door, you will find the steps that lead up to the front master king bedroom, completely private with sliding doors. The Jayco Pinnacle 38FBRK standard is a 72″ x80″ king-size bed, easy to walk around the bed, optionally changed to a 60″ x80″ queen bed for a small extra cost.

The Pinnacle 38FBRK bedroom has two nightstands, reading lights on either side of the bed, power outlets, and USB and USB-C connections. In front of the bed is a chest of drawers with a dresser and a Smart LED TV that allows the couple to enjoy watching the TV in a comfortable position.

The bedroom also has a spacious en suite bathroom with two hand basins, a medicine cabinet with a large mirror, a porcelain foot-flushable toilet, a walk-in shower with a teak seat that folds up and down, and a large shower head, shampoo and soap holder, vents and several cabinets for towels.

After walking through the bathroom of the Pinnacle 38FBRK, you will find the massive walk-in closet with shelves and hanging space for clothes, as well as a stackable washer and dryer combo with prepared connections within the closet.

In front of the entry door is a half bath with a foot-activated toilet, a hand basin, a large mirror, and linen cabinets.

Pinnacle 38FBRK: The Living Room

To the left of the entry door of the Pinnacle 38FBRK is a large living room located in one of the three slide-outs of this unit, right in the middle of this RV.

This living room may be the biggest in the new 2024 floor plans. I should measure the Pinnacle 38FBRK and compare it with the Jayco North Point 387FBTS to see which of these new 2024 living room layouts is bigger. Still, the L-shape arrangement is unique. No other Jayco’s fifth wheels have this modern arrangement between the couch and recliners.

It has a large tri-fold sofa for two people and two theater seats. The tri-fold sofa allows you to increase the sleeping capacity of this RV by up to four people. This spacious living room has an entertainment center with Bluetooth speakers that allow you to pair your smartphone, a ceiling fan, an LED fireplace with an electric heater, and a Smart LED TV. Across the living room is a table with four foldable chairs and a desk that allows you to improvise an office or use it as a coffee table.

This area also has power towers with USB and USB-C plugs and a wireless smartphone charger.

Pinnacle 38FBRK: The Rear Kitchen

Continuing walking towards the rear of the new 2024 Jayco Pinnacle 38FBRK is the kitchen. I will never tire of repeating the advantages of having a rear kitchen in an RV, opposite the master bedroom. Food preparation odors disperse so quickly that it is my favorite recommended layout whenever possible.

This fifth-wheel rear kitchen layout is U-shaped with ample meal preparation area. In addition, the kitchen can be extended with the easily retractable butcher block that swings up and down. Not only is the kitchen spacious and comfortable for meal preparation, but it also has plenty of drawers, cabinets, and a large pantry. All finishes are high quality with solid wood materials, maple-finished shelves, and silent closing mechanisms.

The galley has a residential-size convection microwave with a built-in air fryer and a four-burner stove with an oven. The standard Pinnacle 38FBRK has a residential-size refrigerator that you can optionally change for a 20 cubic foot 12v refrigerator. It also has a large kitchen sink with modern matte black faucets and a potable water connection independent of the fresh water tank. The under-sink dishwasher is an attractive option in the luxury package.

The kitchen also features two power towers with USB-C, USB, and power plugs to connect all your necessary appliances easily.

This 38FBRK RV has high-capacity tanks (75 gallons of fresh water, 87 gallons of gray water, 50 gallons of black tank, and 120 pounds of gas), solar panels, a 30 amp controller, and an inverter to enjoy off-the-grid stays.

Optionally, Jayco offers the Overlander and Luxury packages with options to increase the number of solar panels (up to 6 solar panels of 200w each, 100 amp/hour lithium batteries, battery chargers, 3000w inverter, etc.) to extend off-the-grid periods. I would recommend adding a generator when there is no power access.

As standard, the 2024 Jayco Pinnacle 38FBRK has a 40,000 BTU furnace, and it is possible to add a third 15,000 BTU air conditioner in the living room for a small cost.

If you Jayco always offers, buyers should consider some nice luxury options, such as the 360° security system with a 7-inch monitor and comfort upgrades such as dual panel tinted safety glass windows.

The price starts at $153,436 MSRP (USD). For more information, I encourage you to visit Jayco’s website or contact a dealership in your area.

What is New In the 2024 Jayco Pinnacle 38FBRK? Pinnacle Floor Plans Comparision

The new Pinnacle 38FBRK differs from the rest of the Jayco Pinnacle floor plans by having a front bedroom and a rear kitchen, plus an L-shaped arrangement between the long sofa and the reclining seats in the large living room in the middle of the RV.

It is the first time we have seen this unique L-shaped arrangement for an RV living room. It genuinely looks like a fancy apartment inside. Plus, guests can sleep while keeping the privacy of the master bedroom.

About John Smith

For more than 30 years I worked in the exciting world of RV manufacturing. I liked knowing that I could improve the campers with customer feedback and see the improvements and upgrades on floor plans, delivering the best designs and the best quality RVs, year after year. After traveling with my family in RVs and small rented campers across the USA, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and even North Africa, I feel that I must share personal experiences, guidance, concerns, tips, and news. At Camper Outdoor, we share our biggest passion, weekend getaways in a camper, RV vacations, extended stays in RV parks, the quiet life of senior couples who choose to spend more time enjoying their RV, and boondocking experiences (which as in the beginning was unsuccessful, we have good tips to avoid the same thing happening to you!).
