Bighorn 5er owners!

We're thinking of buying a 2015 bighorn by Heartland. Pro & cons?

Loria, all RV's of any variety are going to take continual maintenance. We owned a BigHorn for 3 years and elected to trade it off after having an electrical issue in the refrigerator area. That scared us enough that I wasn't willing to continue with it. We also wanted a more comfortable RV, so traded it off for our current unit. The BigHorn was fun, we used it 3 years, we enjoyed it 3 years, but remember, all RV's require maintenance, and if your not doing the maintenance, you're not properly caring for the unit. I guess I would volunteer also that I felt that the workmanship as it concerns what you can't see in the Heartland BigHorn was not as clean as I would have liked. Wiring behind the basement bulkhead running everywhere unsecured, and as well, the PEX plumbing was not well attached and/or plumbed. Price point plays an important part in this though; the old analogy goes "ya get what ya pay for." We enjoyed the BigHorn, we had fun in the BigHorn, and, I would not buy another one.
