Hit up the search button on here about other Heartland owners, mostly good but some are not happy campers.

Generator could a bigger issue, what did it have? Probably an Onan 5500? Might be worth having it checked out and make an offer pending that it passes or gets repaired at an Cummins Onan shop. Could be bad gas, could also be the altitude adjustment wasn't set appropriately.

We have found one we think we like, but are unsure of the brand and durability/reliability... We have been looking at a lot of new and used Raptors, but yesterday we stumbled across a used 2012 Heartland Road Warrior 405.

It has all the standard features, plus these optional features:

Hydraulic front landing gear
Electric rear stabilizing jacks
5.5 Onan Generator
3 Power Vents with rain sensors
3 TVs
Multi-Zone Stereo (Living area, Garage, Outside)
Central Vacuum system
2 electric drop-down beds in garage, bottom one converts to picnic style dinette (not the U shaped one)

Here is a link to the floor plan:


The only flaw we could find is a small tear in the rubber garage floor, and a scuff on the exterior of the garage ramp door. Oh, the generator only has 3 hours on it. I started it up, and everything inside worked as far as we could tell. However, the generator dodn't run smooth. It surged an sputtered, kind of in a rythmic pattern. Clueless sales dude said that was normal, I say it's not. it could be old gas in there, but who knows... Thoughts on that?

They want $53K for it. What do y'all think?

Heartland builds a great product and their customer service is excellent. Visit their Heartland Owners Group for all the news...good and not so good. Here is the link:

Heartland Owners Group

I would call Gillette Interstate RV in East Lansing, Mi. They have several sister dealerships and will beat most deals. If you called Lakeshore RV, you have already entered their group.

Good luck in your search
