I've been told they build lots of high quality 5th wheels & used a lot of this quality of building in the Pioneer travel trailers & so the Pioneer RL 250 that I'm buying shares the build quality?

Whats important is that you personally don't have any severe problems with it.
All travel trailers are thrown together with junk parts.

Landmark, Big Horn and Big Country are their three top line models. These three go down the same production line and share components. We bought a 2017 Big Horn because it was 20-30K less than a Landmark and just a little more than a Big Country that does not have a rear cap.

My 2011 Big Horn has been great. A few warranty issues that Heartland paid with no problems. Their Customer service Dept. is outstanding. Was able to resolve issues right over the phone. i.e water leak under kitchen sink. I requested just the part that needed replacing, Heartland said they would just send me a whole new kitchen faucet & parts and would pay the RV Technician labor costs. I was not required to just take my RV to only a Heartland Dealer/repair. If I recommended this technician, that was good enough. Would buy another Big Horn in the future[emoticon]

By whom? A salesperson LOL?

No more quality, or less, than any other brand. The support after the sale may be better,......or worse, than other brands under the Thor umbrella, as Heartland still operates more independently than some of the others. They would need to work at it to get as bad and non responsive as Keystone or the brands Thor handed over to Keystone for customer service, such as Dutchmen.

Personally back in 13 I looked hard at Heartlands North Trail line, and found the fit and finish left a little to be desired from the Keystone and Jayco products we were comparing it against at the time.
