rv-pro.com November 2019 • RV PRO • 17 Heartland Bighorn 3375SS Want a rolling bedroom that's bigger than the one at home? OK, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but Heartland's latest use of the slide-in-a-slide technology sure makes the bedroom in the Bighorn 3375SS seem as big as anything else on display. All of that in a coach that is just short of 38 feet is saying something. The extra space doesn't just make for plenty of room to walk around the 70-by-80 king bed. It also means there is room at the front of the fifth wheel for a large closet and washer/dryer prep area. And it opens up the bathroom to make space for a large linen closet. "This is our first slide in a slide under 38 feet," says Andy Wesdorp, general manager for Landmark, Bighorn and Big- horn Traveler. "Dealers in the Northeast have been asking for some shorter models but don't want us to compromise on the bedroom." The solution, in this case, was the slide in a slide, which basically doubles the amount of space in the room without having to place slides on opposite sides of the room. A pass-through bathroom completes the upstairs portion of 3375SS. The back half of the fifth wheel is divided into an open kitchen/dining area with an island in the middle and the living room area at the rear with a sofa and theater seating. Two feature packages are available. The King of the Mountain Package includes features such as electric awnings with LED strips, a Whisper Quiet 30K BTU dual AC system and an 18-cubic-foot refrig- erator. The Premier Package has a hide-a-bed sofa, a 55-inch TV, residential flooring and a legless dinette with two chairs and two folding chairs. Three color options are available: Coastal Comfort, Shoreline Maple and Hardwood Gray. Wesdorp says Bighorn's five new floorplans show off the three areas Heartland is focusing on to help dealers: product, price and promotion. "Bighorn has been completely revamped top to bottom including the front cap," Wesdorp says. "We're ready to get these out to dealers so they can make the most profits." Bighorn 3375SS has an MSRP of $87,200. What impressed RV PRO: The 3375SS isn't the biggest Big- horn, but its slide in a slide in the bedroom gives it a surprising amount of floorspace and room for an enormous bathroom with a large shower. The bedroom arrangement also makes it so someone could stand in the back of the coach and see all the way to the front – but not be able to tell if the owner had made his bed or not. Using slide-in-a-slide technology, Heartland was able to build what feels like a gigantic bedroom at the front of the Bighorn 3375SS fifth wheel. Andy Wesdorp, GM for Landmark, Bighorn and Bighorn Traveler, says it is Heartland's first slide in a slide under 38 feet in length.
