HEARTLAND BIGHORN FIFTH WHEEL
 
"Nothing short of spectacular - in both its luxurious interior appointments and outstanding design concepts"


See the latest review of the Heartland Bighorn
Heartland Bighorn exterior

Heartland have only been building RVs since 2004; already they're in the top 10 fifth wheel manufacturers and they tell RoTi that they expect to be in the top 5 soon.  Such rapid growth they must be good!

The Heartland Bighorn comes in 3 lengths and  7 floorplans.  The longest model is  33'7" long and the shortest 28'3".  We show 3 floorplans below.  

Heartland have advised RoTi that base MSRPs are in the range $40,000 to $45,000.

Heartland's patent-pending front cap design, which features a 30 percent increased turning radius, perfect for short-bed trucks. Heartland Bighorn front cap design

Heartland says: "The stunning new Bighorn is nothing short of spectacular - in both its luxurious interior appointments and outstanding design concepts. Featuring real hardwood cabinets, including stiles, oil-rubbed bronze hardware and lighting, elegant furnishings, flush-floor slideouts, and an abundance of interior and exterior storage space, the BIGHORN is truly a fifth wheel that is taking affordable luxury to the next level.

FLOORPLANS: 

The 3670RL floorplan is shown below. This has a length of about 38'3" and 4 slideouts giving a very spacious arrangement.  This floorplan features a side aisle. The 3600RL arrangement (not shown) is similar but with a center aisle.  We show a picture of the living area of this model further down.

Heartland Bighorn floorplan 3670RL

The 3400RL floorplan with 3 slides is shown below
 This is a mid length Bighorn with length about 37''.  This arrangement features a center aisle with a split bathroom arrangement.  2 other floorplans are available in this length, one featuring a side aisle and the other featuring a rear entertainment center.
(These floorplans - to maximize the space and make them as easy as possible to look at - are not shown to the same scale of course ..)

The 3055RL floorplan with 3 slides is shown below
This is the shortest Bighorn; the length is only 33'7" but a good arrangement makes the most of the available space.  The bedroom is shorter but the living room arrangement is very spacious.

RpaulI have a 2015 Bighorn 3755FL . The toilet tissue hangs in the 90 going to the tank. Took it in to Camping World for service . They agreed that there was a issue and called Hartland . They said use more water. Am I to put a sign over the toilet telling people to fill the toilet with water to flush. Has anybody had this problem.

Mike I want to know what frame material the bedroom slide rollers attach to on the 2006 3400rl big horn
D.PlaceI bought a 2012 Heartland Big Country new. I am so glad I purchased the extended warranty.My local rv repair shop basically gutted all the inferior flex line fittings and tubing and dock fittings due to leak after leak.5 thousand dollars worth over 3 repair trips.Then the lippert frame started flexing in the front nose creating gaps in the side trim while resting on the hitch.I sent pictures to heartland and they told me it must come back to the factory for repair.Because this happened in the 18th month it was outside their warranty period of 1 year.They offered to correct the problem no charge but i had to drive on my dime to Indiana from Seattle.I did it .
UnsatisfiedMy microwave quite working after 13 months toilet also broke a big piece of crap for all this money!!!!!!!!!!!! :-(
UnsatisfiedBig horn supposed to be 1 of the best. That a joke! They leak constantly.. Every since I bought this top of the line Rv it has leaked under the belly. They tell u that u can call and talk to people haha not true they don't stand by there word at all!!!!
Dave & Juliebout our Big Horn new (2012) to live in while building our house, we have had nothing but problem after problem with water lines we have had tear up our floor (mold underneath) had to disconnect the fresh water pump because it was leaking but couldn't figure that out because we have never dry camped so the holding tank had no water in it. The TV in the beroom just went out so we have had to replace it. the refrigerator went on the blink last summer and we had to live out of a cooler for over a week, we have never been able to use the VCR (no idea what the problem is with it) the front jacks pop all the time....this is our 5th 5th wheel and have never had problems with any of them until now
JimBought a 2014 big Horne in October 2013, possieon in dec 2014 after waiting 3 months for the dealer to repair minor problems and waiting for parts. Ben making minor repairs since. Now it's end of May getting ready to leave on vacation for summer and the micro wave goes out and one of the cooling units craps out. I will never buy another Heartland. To much investment for junk.
O'Donnell'sSave your money and Do NOT buy from Heartland, especially this type of unit, Silverado Bighorn! The entire roof is leaking and the dealership, "Camping World" or the manufacturer, "Heartland" keep giving us the run around. Both say the damage is due to "lack of maintenance," which is a complete crock. We have only had the unit for ONE year! Again, save your money and go elsewhere!

Julie and Jimmy2009 3500RL BC .... we love it! We are full timers and this coach feels like home!
JohnInTexasWe have a 2009 BH 3600RE that we bought new in 2010. Water wicks under the slide-outs and the flooring under two of the slide-outs is coming delaminated and mold has started growing in the walls and carpet. What the heck? The dealer from whom we bought the extended warranty disavowed any knowledge or responsibility and said that our extended warranty probably wouldn't cover it either because we most likely didn't do all the maintenance required. What a jerk position to take without any knowledge of what we've done. Our issues are analogous to having the doors start rusting out on your 3 yr old car because the seals didn't keep the water out. If this is how it's going to be, I'll be wanting to get rid of this thing and buy something with better quality. America made? Did it matter?
dougbWe have a 2008 bighorn and have had problems from square 1 , front electric jack 3 motors replaced, flooring crack and split. Why don't they glue it all down. Now we have cracking under the bedroom slide with heartland and lippert not wanting to talk or repair.
Corvette MaryWe have a 2009 3670 Big Horn and as of June, 2013 we have had it 5 years. We are SO disappointed in this coach. Heartland won't do a thing. All the slides have the wood underneath rotted and coming off on the inside of the coach, especially on the carpet when you move the slides in and out. The skin on the outside of the 5th wheel is separating. Bathroom lino is bubbled, kitchen lino is cracked from the slide roller, we have already had to replace the toilet. The glue on the ceiling in the bathroom and bedroom has come loose and bled through. A moulding on the outside full length has fallen off. Stereo antenna on the outside fell off. Awning is lopsided. What the hell??? $55,000 and this is the junk you get. Since 2000 this is our 5th coach, first fifth wheel and we always buy new. We will NEVER buy a Heartland product again.
JimCI am the original owner of a BH 3055RL and like the trailer. Had the weld problem with the 5th wheel stepup and Heartland made it good after 6 years (did have to take it to the factory in Elkhart, IN)and the shackels on the suspension have worn out (replaced with a wet bolt kit)and my suspension guy upgraded the springs by adding a leaf. This trailer is big and is hard on tires (storing creates a flat spot and separation). The edge wear is likely a separation problem rather than alignment, I had that happen. Overall a good trailer and a value.
