Tight Turn Technology

The invention of our improved tight turning radius design was a game changer for RVers pulling fifth wheels with short-bed extended cab trucks.

Tight Turn Technology

Short-bed extended cab trucks are a popular choice because owners can park in their own garage or at a restaurant. But cornering with a fifth wheel attached has always been a challenge due to the truck’s design. Thanks to our patented improved tight turning radius design, owners can confidently and conveniently complete a tight turn when towing a 5th wheel—instead of hitting the cab.

The invention of our Universal Docking Center has made locating major 5th Wheel hookups less of an adventure.

Universal Docking Center

Formerly found only on expensive motorhomes, Heartland re-engineered the docking design so that owners at all price points could enjoy the same convenience. This innovative compartment holds all of the major hook-ups for 5th wheel models in one place including: city water, tv, phone, satellite, pull handles for holding tanks, and tank flush hookups. 

Carpet-Free Slideouts

We understand the need to wanting a carefree RV experience, which is why removed all the carpeting from our units.

Carpet-Free Slideouts

While we were the first manufacturer to offer the slideout room, we didn’t stop there. We topped it with another first: outfitting the slideouts with woven marine-grade flooring. Easy to clean, durable, hypo-allergenic. In short: the ideal floor for RVers with kids and pets.

Industry Leading Storage

We’ve done it again. This time, we’re leading the industry with the largest storage area around. Featuring our patent pending Stor- Mor storage with 30% more capacity on our fifth wheels and up to 67.5 cubic ft. of front end storage on most of our travel trailers.

Industry Leading Storage

When it comes to RVing, storage is at a premium.  We work hard to create unique storage opportunities by maximizing front end storage space and providing easy access, owners can enjoy more storage and better utilization of space. Coolers with food and beverages can now be separated from all the messy remnants of another great day outdoors, be it wet gear or dirty laundry.

Some great thinking has made enjoying the great outdoors that much more enjoyable.

Side Patio

How’s this for ingenuity? The ramp door on our toy haulers doubles as a patio deck. So you get twice the space without adding weight. Not to mention the simple pleasure of stepping right outside your kitchen or living room to take in the beautiful views—along with your morning coffee.

Versatile Garage Spaces

Taking your home on the road doesn’t have to mean giving up on space to do whatever you want to do.

Versatile Garage Spaces

Our toy haulers are cleverly designed with versatile garage spaces so whether you haul motorcycle side-by-sides or are just looking for extra space to use for whatever — a home office, workshop, mud room or spare room for kids or guests — you’ll find it with Heartland.

Hidden Toy Hauler Garage

A clever use of space in our new Cyclone 4214 Toy Hauler gives RVers the option of hitting the road with almost any stock side by side or small car neatly concealed.

Hidden Toy Hauler Garage

Who knew? With the touch of a button, the bedroom floor can be lifted all the way up to the ceiling to create a unique, unobstructed, 14-foot garage. Complete with a full-size ramp door patio and three season garage wall. What else would you expect from the industry leaders?

The Vault / The Vault XL

Exclusive to Heartland, The Vault provides central housing for 12V wiring connections. It allows owners to disconnect 12V power going from your battery to the RV, keeping your battery in the same charge state as when you cut power. To maintain safety, even when you’ve disconnected power, The Vault still powers the breakaway switch, and any installed solar packages will still be able to charge solar-connected batteries.

The Vault contains:

The advantages of The Vault include:

Inside The Vault, there’s an easy-to-understand diagram that identifies each item and circuit. All components listed above are easy to remove or replace. If you blow a fuse or trip a breaker, always identify the cause before you install new ones, and never use a higher-rated fuse or breaker than specified in your Owner’s Manual. When doing maintenance or repairs on your Heartland RV, please use caution. If you feel unsure of anything you’re doing, play it safe and call a professional service provider.

The Vault is standard on all Travel Trailers and The Vault XL is a larger version and standard on all Fifth Wheels.
