You will be fine, you are in good hands. We appreciate your business. Heartland watched over your order carefully today.

Nothing to be scared of. You have excellent taste in 5th wheels! Ours is our first 5th wheel but we have had several trailers from pop-ups to a park model. This one is the nicest. You're going to love it. Now let the major spending for accessories begin!...Don

Wow, congratulations on your new Big Country. We are waiting delivery of our new Bighorn and speaking from our previous Heartland experience, you have nothing to be worried about. You've got lots of family to lean on here. Welcome to the family from the NJ Chapter.

Congratulations on your new purchase!
Your fear will be quickly overcome with pride of ownership.
Im sure you will enjoy your new toy.
You have found the right place to ask all the hard questions.
The knowledge around here is amazing.

Concave on the new 5th wheel. I know exactly how you fill as ours was ordered yesterday. I can't wait and the count down has begun.

Bob, congratulations on the new rig. Welcome to the Heartland Family & Forum. Another 3250TS "movin on down the road".

Congratulations on the new rig! You will love the Big Country. They are a beautiful RV. We are very pleased with ours. It was about a year ago we went through the same "scared" (some say buyers remorse) feelings. I am here to report those feelings go away and all is good. Heartland has been a great company to deal with.

Best Wishes for many happy and safe camping adventures!

This waiting to see if our credit was approved is nerve racking.....

Congrats on the new rig. We too bought ours a few days ago and now have a very long 6 to 8 week wait. The wait will be long but it will be worth it.

Congratulations on your new Big Country. We also have the 3250 and just love the floor plan. Enjoy and travel safely.

Thats all it has ever taken when we have bought off the lot directly but this was the rv super show with 1100 rigs and the dealer did 69 deals in the 5 days plus there was probably 25 or more dealers there....I don't know how many rigs total were sold at the show.....

"Hang in There" as they say! If it is meant to be it will happen. I can only imagine the backlog of applications at a show that big!

Best Wishes!

When we bought at the Tampa show the finance rep was able to check our credit and even give us our score as we sat there. Did not take anytime at all. Call and see if they want you to order from somewhere else. That should hurry them up!

After breakfast this morning we drove over to the dealership and found out we were in fact approved the same day we bought. The person who was supposed to notify the service dept to get it ready for delivery or the service dept. dropped the ball on notifying us to come pick it up. If I would have had 1/2 the bucks that were being passed I would have gotten the camper for free.....I was waiting to be notified so I could get my hitch installed...I made a quick call and the hitch place said come right over and they would install it for me.....So we cleaned out the bed of the truck and raced over and waited 4 hours for them to do the job....20k Curt slider....

Hooray...you're almost there! Kudos on your choice of the 3250...once we decided on this floorplan, there was no looking back and we have enjoyed it soooo much! Our only regret is that we can't fulltime yet! We love our 4 day weekends in our 3250! This is our second Heartland product and we have been tickled with quality, service, and performance of both units. Have a blast in your 3250 and hope we can meet you on the road sometime!

Today we spent taking the stuff out of the old one....OMG I did not realize how much stuff we had in there.....The inside is now cleaned and polished next is the outside...It is supposed to be warm the next couple of days so I can get the dust washed off it....

We finally took delivery yesterday....all went well....the convection oven will be installed tomorrow....we do not like the cover that is on the bed it is just barely long enough to reach the head of the bed and will not cover the pillows when they are on the bed. A blind slat in the living room was broken at the rv show so that will have to be replaced and the recliners weigh a ton and are hard to move to put the slide in and out, I will need to work on the bottom of them....my other rv I had added some sliders to the bottom of recliner but am not sure what to do to that big round base on these....Even with a stool my wife cannot reach the top shelves in the kitchen....

We opened the drawer under the sofa after our walkthru and the guy said it did not have a drawer and found it full of staging stuff, some of it broken so I emptied the drawer into a box and went and got the vacuum hose and stuck it in the outlet and low and behold it did not work so I went to the basement and that one did not work either...I opened the canister and found a bag and spare bags so I installed a bag, still it does not come on....I suspect it was not plugged in.....so I had to go into our stick built house and drag out the big vac......

Congratulations on your new purchase!

Hang in there....always a few bugs to get worked out, then the enjoyment can begin!! We love our 3250 and hope that you enjoy yours as much as we do.

Welcome to the HL family.

Travel Safe!

Wow I think we are all just big ole KIDS at heart. Just like getting new toys at Christmas.. We actually closed the deal on the phone and told the saleslady we would pick it up in two weeks. When we drove from Oklahoma City to Tulsa that great day every thing was ready. All they had to do was install the Curt Q5 20K hitch in the bed. While that was being done, the Yech did the walk thru with us. By now they were hooking my 2010 Ford F-350 Lariat 6.4 FX4 to the BigHorn.. Oh yes one more major thing, write the check and go thru the paper work.. Wonderful experience.. spent this past week loading stuff in it and just enjoying the time we have spent getting it ready to go...

We had our Curt Q5 installed the week before....that was a long 4 hours waiting for the hitch to be installed and plug wired in....When we got to the dealer to pick up the camper ours was at the front of the line....they were delivering 6 units last saturday so it only took about 3 hours for the paperwork and walk thru and having the wd hitch removed from the tt that we were trading in then we were on our way.....We are waiting for the convection oven to be shipped from Heartland as it did not get to the dealer before we picked our unit up....I am still trying to find out what the brand name of the tv mount is in the bedroom. We also did not get an owners manual for the Air conditioner....I am exausted from hauling the stuff from the old tt from all the places we put it while waiting to pick up the new one....
