I am looking at a heartland fuel 305. I really like the camper but after looking at some reviews most are negative. Lot's of complaints about quality and warranties.
I would like to hear some positive feedback before I make my decision. Most people only post negative feedback.

Hi Twhite,

Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum.

We've got quite a few toy hauler owners on the forum, so I expect you'll hear from some of them soon.

The Fuel line of toyhaulers is produced by Heartland as a private brand for Camping World. CW doesn't get too many good reviews, so use your own judgement. Parts sales are fine, but trailer sales and service, not so much.

Unlike buying a car, these rigs are hand built one at a time by people not robots. Fit and finish are good or bad depending on how fast the production went. If you are expecting these RV's to be like a new car where everything is perfect....well if you are handy with there's usually not much most people cant fix on their own. I have had three new fifth wheels from heartland and so far they have had some minor things wrong. Never took one back to the dealer for anything other than a door replacement under warranty.

Welcome to the forum! For the most part, people never say anything when they don't have a problem. It's that way everything and not just RV's. I am not a fan of Camping World's sales tactics and I've only heard one positive review of there service. With that being said, if you like the Fuel and that's the one you want, you're gonna have to deal with Camping World. My advice would be to do a thorough PDI and don't sign until every issue had been fixed and your happy with the price.

IMHO...Spend the money for a Cyclone or at a minimum a Road Warrior - IF you can find a floor plan in these that fits your needs. You will be glad in the long run - there is a reason these models have beter resale values.

During the national rally in June 2019 we took the tour of the toy hauler factory. Fuel, Torque, Road Warrior and Cyclone are built on the same line. As a matter we saw all 4 on the assembly line at the same time. Looking at the frame you could see the difference in construction between the Fuel, Torque and the Cyclone & Road Warrior. Not only in the length of the units but the 5th wheel section as well.

In the Road Warrior and Cyclone the frame in 5th wheel section is doubled frame not a single frame as in Fuel or Torque.
