Elkridge 5th wheel

I am looking for feed back on Elkridge fifth wheels. We are interested to know how many people have them and like them? why and why not.
They look like a very nice fiver...but look a bit on the heavy side to pull.

I don't have an Elkridge but know several people with one. If you go to the Heartland Owners forum you can ask your questions there and get plenty of information.

You might want to join in the forum in order to ask question, like most forums do.

There is hardly any more small 5th wheels, as most trailers are towed with HD diesels anyway. And most smaller ones have very heavy pin weight for 1/2 tons.

Sundance and Elkridge are lower profiles then the rest of the lineup.
But I believe Elkridge is design to be towed with 3/4 tons. and some Sundance models can be towed with 1/2 tons. They do around here anyway.

We have a 2010 ElkRidge. It is a good quality product, and Heartland does take care of issues.
If you can do without the "luxury" bells and whistles, it is a solid coach. 3/4 ton is a must, we have a 1ton and feel very comfortable pulling it. It is a full profile coach, the only tight spot for us, (5'8" and 5'11") is headroom right at the door to front closet.

Big 5ers will take a well equipped DRW truck to pull them. If you do not want to use a DRW truck, you need to look at smaller 5ers.
