Brad Whitehead, national director of travel trailer sales for Heartland says: The Focus addresses a new product sector for Heartland, adding another piece to becoming a full-line towable manufacturer. With the Focus, were catering to smaller families or couples looking for a trailer that is lightweight and cost-conscious, that still gives them the strength and finish of laminated fiberglass construction .
“Initially, the Focus lineup will offer five 7.5-foot wide floorplans and three units with tented ends, ranging in lengths from 13 to 22 feet. Several units will be equipped with single slideouts and most can be towed by crossovers and smaller SUVs.” (We show the 8 floorplans below.)
Just some of the standard features of the Heartland Focus 7′ Travel Trailers and Tent Ends “more construction strength and eye appeal”: Laminated Sidewall, Endwalls, Roof and Floor Construction; Heated and Enclosed underbelly; Crowned Roof – sheds water and debris; Large tinted safety glass windows; One Touch power awning; Outside speakers

Standard appointments include hand-rubbed, antique-glazed maple cabinets throughout the interior, night shades, porcelain toilets and fully extendable drawers with ball-bearing guides.
Heartland recognized the need for a full-featured product at a price point that traditionally translates into a stripped-down unit, Brad Whitehead said. We see the Focus as an ideal trailer to not only introduce people to the RV experience, but ensure they will remain loyal to the lifestyle.
