We just took delivery last week of our new Heritage Glen 327RES and we are very impressed with the build quality. Took it out last weekend and it performed flawlessly. The only issues I have found so far is the touch screen wireless remote is not opening the bedroom slide... (I know, serious problem to have
) I noticed that the black tank and front grey tank handles were switched, no big deal they just unscrewed. there were a few screws missing here and there in the interior, fixed all that I found, keep a few extra around just in case. Going to be swapping out the king bed matress as it is not comfortable at all.
The L shaped couch is also a hide a bed air bed, it comes with the Aero-Bed that inflates and deflates with a knob, daughter slept there said it was comfy.
This is our first 5th wheel, it pulls like a dream compared to our previous 35' TT that weighed 3K Lbs less, it honestly pulled like nothing was back there. I am very happy with our purchase so far and would not hesitate to do it again.
As for the Schwintek slides, I do not think this one has them as all of the pics of schwintek slides I have seen they have the tracks on each side of the slide, none of the 3 on this one have that.
As for suspension, it is a leaf spring type and not the torsion axle that our Rockwood had but I will say this, it pulled so smoothly I am not sure I would have been able to tell the difference. It had NONE of the dreaded "Chucking" that I hear about from 5th wheel folks, I have the 6.75 bed and I am using the the B&W Patriot hitch and it was awesome to pull. I really could not believe how smooth it was compared to what I was used to, I had read so much before hand from people talking about the air ride hitches, air ride pin boxes etc etc. The ride hurting peoples backs etc etc that I even warned my wife before we left for our first trip that it may get rough. After about 45 mins of driving she turned to me and asked me when the rough part was going to start...
The tires are 16" ST Radials E load rated @ 80 PSI. They are the "Provider" brand, made in China,
but do appear to be well made and they are rated for quite a bit of weight, much more than what is on them.
Now of course, this one is only 11K Lbs, they have heavier ones...
