I drove 18,000 miles on a six month round trip loop from FL to AK. Then FL to NS loop the year before. Everything considered this was the comfort cruiser we were looking for. Very comfortable! Our third trailer, and our first fifth wheel. You have to realize these modern style construction trailers are not real houses with concrete or brick walls that can withstand storms. The fiberglass sandwich outer shells are delicate. Their construction weight is a major consideration when they add in so many amenities and make them so large. That means they are basically cardboard-like boxes on wheels that you pull down the highway at highway speeds. Even the "high priced" models use the same construction methods and materials. If you drive too fast or don't take care on rough roads, they will break! It's up to you to be careful and avoid overdoing it. I've seen overweight trailers speeding down the highways that are a danger to everyone around them. A blown tire can be deadly. I think those owners account for most of the complaints you see in these reviews. If you are not "handy" with repairs you will be frustrated when something happens. You have to maintain constant inspections of all seals and structures keeping it in good condition or problems can compound. A leaking seal that allows water entry will melt the box. You have to observe your weight restrictions and limitations. No procrastinating! Don't think "nothing is going to break." It will!

We fell in love with this unit we had just sold Winnebago Tour Diesel pusher towing a VW so We were pleasantly surprised how well we liked what felt was extra living space in the fifth wheel we had three motorhomes previously and one other 5th wheel years ago my wife always like the old fifth wheel but I wanted a bigger motorhome. We have been camping 50 some years early tents to what we have today. I can honestly say we made this unit and the Dodge Ram 3500 4X4 exactly what we wanted so we had all the comforts of home we have toured 49 of the fifty states and loved every minute of it. We purchased both the fifty wheel and the Dodge Ram new from the dealers and added everything we wanted that the unit didn't come with also added items to the truck that we felt it needed like airbags, extra fuel tank allowing 800-1000 range so we could be particular on diesel prices and the stops for fuel. There is a toolbox for carrying supplies

Refrigerator keeps blowing fuses and not working the way it is suppose to. Plug into electric and it wont come on.Works ok on propane. Fireplace switch broke to turn on/off. Should not have these problems with the money we spent. Manufactures pushing hard to make them and too many mistakes.

Only issues were a a leaking hydraulic leveler and a dented porch light. A few cosmetic interior issues. We have been able to use the trailer. We are waiting to have the leveler replaced , and replaced the porch ourselves. There was a bolt missing from another leveler. That will be fixed as well . Appt is in February. Other than that, no leaks if any kind, everything works. All plumbing works no leaks. I’m happy with this trailer. We had a TT prior to this, COMPLETELY DIFFERENT MANUFACTURER Forest River Sunset Trail 32 ft . Had many issues with the fridge. Had to have motherboard replace twice. Couldn’t get satellite hookup to work. Had to hook directly from outside. So saying all this, EVERY RV MANUFACTURER is going to have some kind of issues, wether it be minor or major. Have had no problems with warranty.

Poorest craftsmanship ever!! 1 of 4 rollers on kitchen slideout ripped out tearing linoleum, $1000 repair to fix roller only (reference skrews complaint). Had to spend a week at RV Renovators, Mesa AZ,for repair. Strongly recommend them, they're awesome! Shower doors/bracket installed backward (obviously no quality control) drained onto floor. Broken hose under unit, wrong parts sent from mfg for repair. Bed sliding out crooked therefore wouldn't seal and keep out water. Mfg refused to have fixed because it still operated, we paid to have fixed (uneven cables). Gray tank leaked, pullcable had to be tightened. Drawer catches do not hold. Hydraulics leaked needed tightened. Multiple roll-up shades failed. Endless screw failures (not warrantied) too short--must be big discount on pricing for short screws??! So much buyer's remorse and fear what major fail would happen next that after only two years we traded it in for an Arctic Fox (Northwood). Previously owned one for 12 yrs--great quality workmanship!!! DO NOT BUY HEARTLAND, too many regrets.

We were looking for an RV floorplan that we could live in for a couple of years. We loved this plan but were shocked with all the problems we had right off the bat. We have had quite a few RV's and none have had anywhere near the problems. These are almost all factory problems. Heat ducts not attached so no air blowing out, horrible water leak down the inside back from the rubber roof so the whole rear had to be removed and roof resealed, lots of misc plumbing leaks, TV antenna wired incorrectly, lots of loose trim pieces, couch spring sprang after just a couple of weeks, carpet was not sewn into trim so it frayed and had to be replaced. These were all in the first few months and unit had been parked the whole time. There have been issues constantly. The first few months the dealer had it more than we did and we were living in it which is very costly when you have to be staying somewhere else all the time. We felt Heartland should have replaced the unit but they wouldnt consider it and after talking to a couple of other owners who have also had similar issues, it wouldnt have done any good cause they are just made poorly. We cant afford to trade it in so hubby spends lots of time coming up with ways to improve on their shoddy workmanship. We are planning a vacation but are so scared to take this thing on the road. This has been a real heartbreaker. We retired and were looking forward to doing some traveling and this unit has spoiled our whole first year. BUYER BEWARE! I dont know about any other years or Bighorns but this one is total trash.
