Heartland uses a "Drop" frame in front of their larger units. It a a 12" frame, and one of the benefits is getting HUGE basement while still being able to stand up in the entire bedroom and keeping total height of fiver around the 13'4" range.


Thank you for answering a question I've had for awhile - how they make these 5ers with headroom up front, still have basement storage and stay under height restrictions. Makes sense.

Any opinions are my own and not of my employer.
