One thing we lucked up on, is right before we signed on the spec sheet to order, we noticed the residential fridge option. This wasn't listed in the brochure or anywhere else for that matter. A phone call to factory, option verified, a few pictures sent of what it would look like, and that's what we ordered. Also getting heat strips put in both AC's and slide toppers. We've had heat pumps before, and were disappointed in the fact they don't work well below 50 deg, and not at all around 40 deg. We managed pretty well with 2 heat strips in a previous fifth wheel, provided it wasn't extreme low temps. Does anybody know if this thing is actually 13'4" tall? I believe that's what the brochure says. Rather tall if that's true. It wasn't practical to measure the one on the lot the other day. It'll work, but close. We'll be full timing in it, but it'll spend the first month in our shop getting rigged out and loaded up, and the shop doors have 13' 10" clearance. Close, but it'll go. Our experience thus far with Heartland has been great. Between this forum and feedback received from the factory, we feel we've made the right choice.
    Not sure about gateway but my BC with 2nd ac stands 13'1" at highest point which is the front ac.

    My brochure said 12'10", I didn't believe it. I measures our 2014 3650BH while it was sitting in storage (gravel lot, not perfectly level front to back) and I measured 13'3" from ground to top of front AC unit. I need to remember to measure it while it's hooked up to my truck, to see if there's any discrepancy there. Either way, you should be fine with a 13'10" door.

    Sounds like the 13' 4" may be the right figure, or close anyway. Seems like they'd use the low profile 13.5 AC on the front to reduce overall height a bit, but we'll take it how it is. We've never had anything over 12' 11" and never came too close to tagging anything, so a few more inches won't hurt.

    Does anyone know if a 4 or 6 point leveling system is available on any Gateway 5th wheel model?

    Our unit built Sept13 has the 6pt ground control(electric) on it. I have read a post where a owner had the 6pt level up(Hydraulic) installed on his. the level up install is done by lippert before the frame is delivered to Heartland and the ground control is added by lippert after the unit is built.
