    Any glaring issues with Mallard?

    I'm interested in the Mallard M32, because I like the floor plan, and it is one of the few fiberglass sided travel trailers in my budget ($20K-25K). The one thing giving me pause, is that Mallard is only available from Camping World in my neck of the woods, NC/Southern VA. Any input?

    Re: Any glaring issues with Mallard?

    Hello Askibum02 and welcome to this great forum. Lots of great information here about camping and your rig.
    The Mallard is built by Heartland from specs of Camping World and sold only by Camping World.
    I don't recall any glaring issues.
    Hopefully some Mallard owners will chime in with their thoughts.

    Peace

    Hey folks,

    Just a kind reminder that disparaging remarks about our dealers is a no-no "on the forum". Please share this sort of commentary privately.

    Thanks

    I purchased my Mallard M27 in Aug 2017. I am very satisfied with the TT. I didnít have any problems with it.

    I have a 2017 M26 Mallard and love it. Have made three long trips to various states. We had a few issues at first but I understand most RVs have a few warranty issues at first. Love the bunk house floor plan and all the standard features for the money makes the Mallard a great value. Heartland has been great to work with when I have had questions - Patty

    Re: Any glaring issues with Mallard?

    I just purchased a Mallard M32 this month. I haven't had a chance to take it out yet because of the weather so no advice there. I looked at Forest River, Coleman, and Pioneer. The m32 had everything I was looking for. It has bunk beds in the back for all my kids, lot of storage space, an awesome outdoor kitchen with grill and tv. The electric awning is great and the wife loves the built in vacuum cleaner and outside led lights. I'm excited about the Bluetooth outside speaker system. There are a couple of features I wish it did have like an electric tongue jack, a ladder inside the back room for kids, and some other small things. None of these were deal breakers and can be purchased later. It is observation/backup camera ready if you want to install one. I plan on it. I pulled it from Camping World to home with my 2007 Ford F-150 (2 hour drive). Dry weight is 6700 lbs which was important for me. I use the 10,000 lbs ezlift weight distribution kit with sway bar to transport it as well.

    Re: Any glaring issues with Mallard?

    In my shopping experience, the mallards are very similar to North trails. The major differences being floorplans are somewhat modified, Finish is somewhat different (fabric, colors, etc) and the availability of options tends to be limited based what the CW dealer is willing to stock on their lot. One dealer was willing to custom order but even then the options available was still limited compared to North Trail.

    There may be some less visible differences but not sure it would be too much considering the extra engineering costs that may be involved.

    The Mallards would have been an option for us if the western Iowa camping world would have been closer to us. Now we have three CW's in Iowa.

    Re: Any glaring issues with Mallard?

    I am planning on buying a m32 Saturday in Raleigh nc. This will be my first new tt and need some pointers. I know that I get to do a walkthrough but no idea what to look for. Will they hook up water, test ac, fridge, water heater, greased axles? What do I need to be looking for! I want it right when I drive off the lot. Nervous!

    Plan to spend quite a bit of time inspecting your own unit.
    Take a flashlight and maybe a screwdriver.
    Notepad and pen/pencil

    In the owners manual section there is an rv pdi check list by one of the members.
    https://manuals.heartlandowners.org/...06-07-2017.pdf

    Go through and test, inspect and view everything to your satisfaction.
    Make sure that anything that needs repair is addressed to your satisfaction.

    Be sure to test operation of water pumps, tanks, city water inlet etc.
    Test any slide-outs and verify location of exterior circuit breakers usually near the battery and interior fuses and circuit breakers.

    Test with and with out Shore power(AC) hooked up.
    12v and propane systems should all work. Including Lights, refrigeration, stove, water heater, furnace, etc. Air conditioners will not work on 12v but nearly everything else should.

    Verify that water heater has water in the tank prior to testing electric heating.

    It may take several hours to test everything. If you don't know how something works, ask the dealer to show you.
