I am looking for feedback on Heartland 5r's. As much as I know about MH's I know very little when it comes to 5r's. I am helping a family member pick a TT or 5r and was very impressed with the construction and features of Heartland's 5r's. However, as we all know, what we do not see and don't know usually haunts us later. The only other brand we are looking at is Keystone. Heartland reminds me of Travel Supreme's approach vs. Fleetwood. Any comments would be appreciated.

Also looking for advice on selecting a vehicle for towing.

Thank you,

We have looked at the Heartland 5ers and in general they seem OK. But when you start to look into the nooks and crannies, you will see some items that are not really well finished. I was hoping for a bit better finish.

Best thing to do is to take along a good flashlight and look into all of the dark corners and pull out drawers to look into the backs of cabinets.

I own a 2007 Bighorn 3670RL. Overall it is a good 5th wheel. We have had a few issues but not too bad. It is a good value for the price, and the factory supports the customer well. Do go to the heartland owners forum and check things out.
