"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 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.

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.

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.

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.
Ali and JorgeWe own a 3055 --- 2007. We bought 2nd hand but had been used only a few times as we know the owners very well. We have had big problems with the under carriage--Springs, alignment, shackles, cracked mooride, wearing of tires. We also noticed that the fiberglass under the goose neck was coming away from the trailer which we had fixed last year. This year coming home from Az we noticed the same problem with the fiberglass bubbleing under the gooseneck. We took it to a reliable rv dealer and they took the whole front off. They have found poor materials holding the 5th up under the gooseneck, we are having new metal replacing the old material and welds fixed from not enough strength holding the trailer up. This has cost us close to $10,000.00 so far for the poor wormanship in this trailer. The warranty won't cover the costs and neither will the insurance company. Bighorn won't even return our calls. WE WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER BIGHORN 5th WHEEL!!!!! The RV shop has removed the top bubble part of the trailer along with the gooseneck fiberglass--they found poor material holding the floor up and the welds broken in spots. this is not covered by warranty or insurance. It has cost us close to $10,000.00. We do NOT recommend this trailer to anyone and will never buy from Bighorn again. The won't even answer our phone calls.
Bill KnightOne important plus for ALL Heartland products is that warranty service can be done by any RV servicer YOU desire to use - You Don't HAVE to go to your nearest Heartland dealer. You do have to make a phone call to Heartland Service BEFORE you take the trailer to the servicer to get authorization. I have a 2008 Bighorn 3670RL, and am pretty happy with it, and am very happy with the owner's online forum and Heartland's support of owners rallies around the country. There must have been at least 30 minor rallies, a 4 regional rallies, and 1 national rally last year.
S SmileyWe have a 2010 3670 of which we are having a problem with the kitchen floor bubbling-up because of the slide roller. So far we have not gotten any repair. Heartland is saying this is normal because the floor is not glued at the factory. The reason being that the roller would tear the flooring. According to our dealer Heartland's engineers are trying to find an answer. We have had a bunch of little problems that are just aggrevate you.
SidWe purchased a 2011 Bighorn 3585RL in February and we are completely pleased with everything about it. It is quality all the way. We love everything from the large opposing slides to the 42" tv. The king size bed is very comfortable and my wife loves the washer and dryer. The 3585RL pulls great and we have had no problems other than a small leak the bedroom slide which was fixed immediately under warranty. Very happy with this purchase.
Billy B.We have a 2008, BH 3055, Was new when we bought it. We like the unit a lot with the comfee room and all.BUT! A pasenger side front axle 4 leaf spring pack broke and dealer ended up replacing all four spring packs and both axles with a 6 leaf spring pack. We had to replace all four tires at that time. We took a trip this past November to Ms, Ark, & Az. and back to California. After the return trip I had the Right rear tire outside rib worn away real bad. The tire is like camberd in on that axle and the front axle. One Rv shop tells me I have bent spendales.Goes back in the shop to check the alligment on the axles next week. I have talked to another BH. owner and his did the same thing and was out a lot of $$ to get things right. The only way his was fixed was to redrill the spring shackle hole and move the axle back. I know from my experance in the commercial truck world if the axles are not square with the king pin you will ware tires out quick. Has anybody else had this problem?? Please share. Plus leak behind shower wall runs out above outside compartment door.
lynda2006 3055 needing electrical schematic for the towing system-everything is out: tail lights, blinkers, and trailer brake. Perfect in the truck. has to be the trailer. Made a funny clicking and brakes were catching during highway towing before total failure. help
Tony PGreat 5th wheel. We have a 2009 Bighorn and we're trading it for a 2012 before we go FULLTIME - yeah. Love RVing and love Heartland.
2ofus in CAWe have a 2009 Bighorn 3600RL. Great 5er with 4 slides and very few problem. We really like it. At the end of this year I retire and we're going full time. The bighorn will be our home and we're really really looking forward to it.
