This forum is an absolute gem and will still be lurking around Iíve gotten so much good advice here but after having our daughter we are searching for a bunkhouse floorplan and Weíve looked at every bunkhouse fifth wheel in our budget in the Heartland arsenal and neither my wife or I really like any of them. We have narrowed it down to two Floorplans both being SOB. I have literally looked at dozens of differant fiverís and in our budget all have the same build quality and workmanship so the only thing Iíll miss is this forum and Heartland customer service, fortunately Iím able to fix most things myself so ive never really used customer service that mucjh anyway. We havenít committed to anything yet so who knows what will happen but unless Heartland comes out with a layout we like before spring we will be saying goodbye. 😔

We felt the same way when we replaced our 12 year old Cardinal, and could not fine something in their line up that suited our wants and the capability of our SRW 3500 RAM. We however found a new family here!

Best of luck with your "change of families".

It took me over a year to work out all the bugs (mfg. defects) and since then it has been wear and tear. I agree that most of the new units of other manufacturers are reasonably the same in engineering and built quality. This makes it harder to settle on a new unit which I will be buying when I get back to Florida this winter. However, I think I will make a more informed choice this time as to what I need and look for as well as being much more demanding during the POD. My limitation is that I will not be buying a unit that requires a Dually TV. I am stuck with a SRW because of garage limitations. DRV is offering new luxury unit that was designed to be pulled by a SRW TV that has struck my interest. So I will be looking closely at it.
I don't think buying a used unit is a good idea because of hurricane damage this year........

Weíve picked our replacement fifth wheel and unfortunately its not a Heartland. We chose a GD reflection, after looking at both finalists its the perfect fit and very nicely built. I have nothing bad to say about Heartland or our sundance it has served us well. Thanks to everyone on this forum that i have gotten advice from and technical support from, i will continue to lurk and learn, lol.

Good luck with your new rig. Still doesnít keep you from traveling down from Galeton to Elysburg to the rally in May. Details will be on the forum soon.

Wishing you all the best with the new unit. Keep in touch with your Heartland pals here on the forum and at a chapter rally here and there.
