Thought Heartland and Forrest River are 2 different companies.

White Hawk has aluminum wall studs. We are very happy with our White Hawk.
Daughter's in laws had a large Hartland 5th wheel which had to be taken back to the dealer several times to correct problems. He was totally dissatisfied with it and traded it on a $300,000 motorhome.

Always heard good things about Jayco but the are about making things look pretty. Each will have entry level and higher so it would be good to hear which two actual trailers you are looking at.
GaryWT, thanks for the lead on the Keystone Premier. Both Keystone and Heartland are subsidiaries of Thor. The Premier like the North Trail has the Wide Track system which is developed and patent by Heartland. (BTW the Jayco WH uses this Wide Track system, . I like the 2015 Premier 26RBPR floor-plan (opposing double slide) which Heartland NT does not offer. Please share your insights on your Premier.
Thank you

We owned our North Trailer for 2 years and liked it but had a few issues, the biggest was it was too low so we had trouble getting in and out of the driveway. It only had 2 steps. Fast forward, we bought a Premier 31bhpr 2 years ago from the same dealer. This trailer sits higher and tows better than the North Trail. We love the Premier and everything about it. We have spent 84 nights in it over the 2 years. The systems have worked well and we have no at had any issues with it. We are always looking but have not seen anything we like better. Good luck.

There are issues with all brands. Do your homework and assume they are all lacking in quality control. Good luck.

We Purchased a Jayco Jayflight 26RKS 2 years ago and it has a huge slide, we choose the bunk bed model ... Only 1 issue in 2 years, (the plastic nut under the kitchen faucet broke off) that's it. We ordered the TT, got the Thermal Packge and the Elite package ...everyone that walks in it comments how solid it is. I pull it with a 2007 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Crew Cab, 6.0 l gas... in tow haul mode we barley know it's back there.. Yes, we are using a stablizer hitch with sway bar control... Love it!
