Was just on the Titanium forum and there is a load of pictures and discussion on the new Bighorn/Titanium prototype. Looks nice. Wonder why it wasn't posted here first instead of on a site for a defunct, out of production brand????...Don :confused:

Hi Don,

The initial pics on the Titanium forum were pics posted there by Tony - pics he took at the plant :)

The exterior pic posted there today was one I emailed to him. I posted it on the BH Facebook page but ran out of time to post it here. We're outnof town for turkey day.

I received that exterior image from our resident RV hauler on the forum, Mike Jarrett. Thanks Mike! I obtained corporate approval to get it posted. Didn't take long to find it's way onto here and RV.net. Fun news travels fast.

Some time soon (December) we'll have more and better quality images to post.

Dang Jim,

Didn't take long for that secret to get out of Louisville. Guys and Gals, you have to see this one, The paint is simply stunning, absolutly beautiful, I can't wait to see the interior myself. This trailer stands out like a sore thumb in a sea of white trailers at the RVIA show.

P.S. Nice job cleaning up and cropping my cruddy cell phone pic.

11-25-2010, 06:36 PM

Awsum. You were the only one I sent or even showed the pics too so I know where the leak came from. Should we tell them about the Limited Edition Heartland Sundance 36DD Go Go Edition with the Kegerator, Bose stereo, mirrored ball, strobe lights, Jacuzzi tub, stripper pole and a red velour covered heart shaped waterbed.

Folks, The North Trail Caliber is a very sharp unit too.

Heartland Officers and Employees. Thank you for having me haul this unit to the show. I know how important a one off prototype show trailer like this is and I sincerely hope it exceeds all of your expectations.

This trailer is build on the same design as the Titanium trailers from Canada, did Heartland bought them out, heard they were in financial difficulties.

The cab over design was a pattented design.

They are the same company that manufactured my previous trailer.

Glendale RV went bankrupt around the first of this year, I think it may be pretty obvious now who bought the patent.

Willym

When Glendale went bankrupt, they had two divisions, one in Ontario that manufactured Titanium branded 5ers, and one in Alberta that made Kustom Koach Legacy/Travelaire Genesis 5ers. The Alberta trailers had the same overall design as Titaniums, but with different trim, layouts and graphics. I heard that a division of Thor bought the patterns from the Alberta plant, while Heartland (not a part of Thor at the time) bought the patterns and patent from the Ontario plant.

There are a lot of loyal Titanium owners out there, and many have expressed their enthusiasm at seeing the new Bighorn Ti design. My dealer sold many Ti's, probably more than all other Ti dealers combined. Fortunately for him, he switched to Heartland when Glendale folded, and is now really looking forward to selling Ti's again. He will sell a lot.

Jim is correct, I did post pictures of the interior and a floor plan on the Titanium RV owners forum with permission from Heartland. I really think that Heartland has a winner with this coach.

If I am looking at this right I would believe that you can't get to the refrigerator while the slides are closed. If this is the case, forget stoping on your way at the store for any kind of grocery's, well at least parishables. Going from campground to campground this would not work well. Have seen this before and just don't understand the thinking here.

That would be a good reason to have the door side slide on it's own activation circuit. Be able to move 5-6" to sneak around to the fridge.

Takes seconds to run a slide in and out far enough to get to the fridge. Sure wouldn't let that be a deciding floor plan in my decision.

We have owned several Titanium's and putting the slide out 10 or 12 inches only takes a few seconds. For us it has not been a big issue. We buy it because we like a floor plan. We currently have on order the BH Ti32. The Titanium that we just traded and the one before that had the same type of design. We got so use to it that we didn't even notice and it bceame routine.

I think there will be a concern with these Titanium's. But a fun RV for sure.
When you pull into all the campgrounds of America and Canada, it'll have everyone with Wow-we, What's that, Who makes it, hey honey come here, look at this fine 5th wheel coming in. Bighorn!? I thought they were white. Hey its a cab-over design like those Titanium trailers. Let's gave them an hour to set-up, I've got to see inside one of those.

Good day from Northern Calif. I just joined the forum and wanted to follow the Ti design on the Bighorn. I'm looking for my first 5th wheel and really like the front end setup on this model. Does anyone know where I can get the info on the Bighorn Ti?

First off, Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum.

Here's the thread on the Bighorn Ti (//heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/19620-Pictures-of-new-Bighorn-Titanium)

Beyond this we're all drooling and waiting for Heartland release more info and specs after the Louisville RVIA dealer show which ends today.

Having seen the exterior first hand when delivering a trailer to the show in Louisville, all I can tell you is it's sharp, very sharp.

Jburks

That is very cool. I have two questions 1) where do you buy the raffle tickets and 2) when is the drawing? or at least I think it would make a great door prize at the 2011 rally.

I have heard that one of the problems with that cab over design is the stress placed on the frame and pin box. This baby must really have some beefed up frame.

The cab over design was a pattented design.

They are the same company that manufactured my previous trailer.

That is right. Our last Titanium had the washer dryer in the bedroom slide. It was only big enough for a combo unit which is what we used and had no problems. Glendale did add some reinforcing under the slide floor after some initial problems with the slide support rollers causing some deformation in the exterior skin. This slide was operated by a motor and cables (BAL Accuslide) and was generally very reliable.

Ask me any questions you want, I will do my best to answer them. The big advantage of this coach is it 5 ft shoter tow length compared to a conventional 5th wheel. It is alo more aerodynamic. I have towed this type of coach more than 200000 km's and love the way it handles.

As for pics, I don't have any more, I will have lots of pics when I get a new one sometime before Christmas. Then I will take pics from every angle an upload them.

Was there any wind noise from it, being that its a overcab? How much extra weight does it add to the pin? Do you know that 32 feet is the longest or are they going to make them longer? Are you going to be the first to get a Bighorn Ti32?

I've owned 3 Titaniums and now have a LM. There is no discernible difference in noise level between them. The pin weight range for Titaniums was similar to any other 5th wheel trailer. Manufacturers can vary this by setting the wheel location somewhat when they design the trailer. I travelled to Alaska this past summer with 3 Titaniums, and was getting similar fuel consumption to them. In fact, I was getting only slightly worse consumption than a 28' Titanium being towed by a 2500 RAM CTD with a 3.73 axle.

tonyl

No wind noise. Like Bill said, the pin weight is not really any different from other 5th wheels. For now the 32 ft pin to bumper is the only length for this unit. Thye will most like make a larger unit probaly in the 34 ft length. They are curently manufacturing a Cyclone Toy Hauler in the 35 ft length. Yes, we will most likely to be the first to get a Ti32.

Not sure about the 2 blue horns. Suggestion - make the 2 blue horns smaller and wider apart then move the Ram head down from the top closer to the wording BigHorn. Or even better yet, maybe have the Ram head behind the word BigHorn like in the older design. The Ram head from the ground seems to get lost way up on top of the cap.

beardedone
12-23-2010, 06:33 PM
If I got a little bigger ram on my Ram DRW then they would look very good together. Compared to my 03 Titanium the nose looks like it gives a little more headroom for the bed.

One thing to bear in mind with the nose cap on this model that a few of us quickly learned when moving these units to Louisville as a couple drivers had to swap units with each other to get them to the show... No CB antennaes or anything else above the cab of the truck with this nose.

The new Big Horn Titanium Edition is now sitting in our driveway. This is still not the final product, they still have to make design changes to the storage space both inside and outside the trailer. we are impressed with the quality of the rig. Excellent workmanship. Now to load load it up and head to Florida. I will take some pics of the interior in the next few days and post.

I don't have a pin weight for this unit, it does seem to be around the 2000 to 2100 lb mark based on the other trailers that I have towed with this truck and that is several different Titanium's. I would have to say that the picture angle has something to do with why the truck looks low on the back end. My truck has the TowBoss package and has a higher GVWR than a regular F350. The GVWR for the trailer is 14000 lbs.

Larry,
I was suppose to get full body paint, however the time frame was too short, I needed to have this prototype before Christmas. I will write a critique on it over the next few days. The one thing that I can say, this is the first trailer that I ever owned that I didn't have to fix something on (touching wood). Heartland did an excellent job in producing this rig with the time constraints placed upon them.

We love this unit but ...
We would like to know when or if you are going to build the Titanium 26/31. That Glendale model was a perfect towing size for our 3/4 ton Ford F250.
The reason I ask is we'd like something smaller, because the BH ti32 needs a one ton truck to pull it.

We tow our BH 32 TI with a 06 f250 powerstroke with no problems, added air bags to level the box. We are within the truck towing specs, it is a 4X4 with the fx4 package. Unless you go with a dual axle the tow specs for the f350 are not much better.
