They have redesigned them and have paid close attention to detail. They are just a bit above our budget

We have one, and it is as near perfect for us as can be. It's our 4th trailer, 2nd 5th wheel, and it is top notch. It'made to full-time

I was impressed with them when I looked at them. Good frame...not top notch but good. Good insulation and overall a better than average 5er.

What didn't you like about the frame? The next step up is another $80,000. This Landmark in my opinion is as you say top notch.

Perhaps take a look at Heartlands latest recall, 130 coaches with axles in the wrong location. Instead of replacing the units, they are cutting, patching, welding, and adding ballast to the pinbox. This has shaken my faith in a manufacturer that I was previously a fanboy of.

All I will say is Heartland has had more than their share of issues with all of their RV's. I think most it has to do with QC during production. Hence over the last year the name "Heartless" comes up often. I would also look at the Redwood in the Landmark price range, as well as the Bay Hill.

If I sold 4000 units compared to 200 units I would accept 20 times more problems. And if the 20 were twice the cost I surely would expect no problem. Then I surely would consider the 4000 units very unreliable at 1/2 the cost.
It's the way industry takes care of free enterprise.
Our $40 000 unit is paid for and trouble free now for over 6 years and 6 years of comfortable full timing. The doors are still aligned with the original tires after 60000 miles.
I am sure the Landmarks are well build with the experience gained by selling high quantities.
Again it's my opinion and I do have lots of remarks about my opinion.
It has kept me safe for the past 65 years and no one need to correct me. I listen to no one but experience life and move on.

All manufacturer's have a re-call list. Not one of the is perfect. Our Montana had axle bushing recalls,and I had a 20 item list of things that needed to be replaced. To top it off Keystone was going through security kind of management change and they either didn't ha e parts on hand or a shipping problem. Parts were back logged over 6 months. So it's not just Heartland. I see Heartland recall #130 listed a recall of a Landmark that was built on Dec 24. When a manufacturer builds the perfect rig let me know.

My wife and I discovered this unit at the Tampa RV show last month and really liked it. We also attended the Dallas RV show last weekend and talked with Tom Montague, who is the head of the Landmark division of Heartland. I really liked what he had to say about the coaches, and yes, I know if an RV salesman's lips are moving, he's lying. The one thing I'll do first, if we buy one, is to take it to MORryde and have an IS installed in place of the 8,000 lb. axles. I think it would be $5600 well spent. One of the main reasons we took Redwood off of our list is that they do not offer a 3rd air conditioner. I wouldn't want to spend much time in Arizona in one of those.

We looked at Landmark 365s before we ordered our DRV. The Landmarks, especially the new 365s, just didn't have enough CCC to meet our needs. This isn't as big a problem if you're weekenders instead of full-timers like us, but then the Landmarks are pretty expensive for a 5th wheel you will only use on weekends.

We've been full timing in our Landmark and have had very few problems. The Landmark 365 is an improvement over the one we have, so when the day comes that we want to trade it will be another Landmark, this time a 365.

We full-time in ours, and it is a wonderful coach. It feels like home. Very comfortable, and I guess since we're not pack rats the cargo weight works just fine for us. I also never travel with any fluids In the tanks, and at the most 1/2 tank of water.
