If your looking at the high end HL's, me again said it right in terms of the pecking order. Can kinda look at this in another way. Landmark = Cadillac, Big Horn = Buick, Big Country = Chevy. We bought a BC last year and love it. Yes had a issue that HL took care of and the floorplan/features/astetics sold us. Case in point. We have the 2nd fireplace in bedroom. Landmark does as well. Ours looks better IMO. Do like the ceiling lighting in the bedroom of the LM. Folks have probs w/ 150K and up coaches, so no-one is immune.

FWIW, I like GMC over a Chevy.

We purchased our 2011 Bighorn new and have not had any issues with it other than a missing screw on a wall sconce and the large rear window Day/Night Shade needing adjusting. This is one we are keeping and as a result have made several mods to it. Well built and well appointed too!

There's a reason Big Country, Landmark and Big Horn are warranted for full time use and the Pioneer isn't.

Pioneer is on the low end of the Heartland brand. Don't expect anything too great. They are built with the same methods and components as any other in their price range. There is only so much they can do differently.

according to Rv.net experts:

Thor = bad
thor owns heartland
therefore heartland = bad

Unless I missed the boat to China, only 2 players in the RV world: Forest River and Thor. Pick your poison. Both companies have low/end end builds and good/better quality. Name me 1 line from either parent company that's problem free.

Incomplete information, only the structure is warrantied for 3 years. I think bumper to bumper is 1 year and the roof is 10 years.

And the 10 year roof warranty like everyone else's...covers only the replacement fabric, no labor, no other materials. If that isn't bad enough it's pro-rated. Not the big deal the salesman wants you to think it is.

Howdy!

We have a Heartland Cyclone 4000, my answer would be NO. Personally I will not buy another Heartland anything.
