Heritage Glen 356qbq

Stepped up into a 5er today. Big jump from the old TT. Pulled well, big difference from a bumper pull. Tipped the scales at 19920 truck/trailer unloaded. Time to start loading it for the shakedown trip next week.

Quick Question for you. For your bunk house ladder, Are the steps round bar or flat wood? We have the round bar and it kills our feet when we step up to open/close the window. Just curious.

On the ladder that came built into the bunk/ entertainment center, that is wood with round rungs. The one in the picture was a ladder I made for my last bunkhouse TT that I kept and reused for the other side in the back. The steps are flat. i made it out of poplar 1x3 finish boards. The stain doesn't match now but I really don't care.

Thanks for the response. The rungs that are round hurt when you step on them. Good idea on making your own.

Sweet looking unit. We are awaiting word on when to pick ours up. Haven't towed a fifth wheel that size before so plan on having a friend come with me to do the driving who has a large fifth and is used to the size. Intimidating for me but he assures me it won't be a problem. Really enjoyed the pix of yours and makes me want to have our new one now. Any hickups or bugs your had after delivery?

So far towing has been really nice, coming from a 34' TT. Turning is practice along with backing. The 5er is not as reactive compared to the TT. This unit is better balanced than my older TT, you can feel it. Few minor hiccups. 1st the black/gray handles on the front tanks were switched. Found out quickly dumping gray water and it was the black tank. No big deal, just swap the colored handles. 2nd was the grille wouldn't light, not even get propane to it. After some digging into t, I took off the quick connect valve last night and found the 90* elbow piece of black pipe was a bad cast and was completely blocked off inside the elbow. I was able to drill and break out the metal and cleaned it up, grill works great now. 3rd issue was the Dometic 300 series toilet has internal leaks which allow mostly water/ urine to collect within the 2 piece bowl. Constant stink if you could imagine. Only 1 of the 2 toilets were affected, I called Dometic and the are sending out 2 new 310 models to replace the faulty one. They should be in today. Keep an eye on yours and call Dometic if there are any issues. I'm doing the install rather the dealer just based on travel time and fuel costs. Otherwise I got a ton of compliments and looks. It's a very nice trailer, fit and finish were good. We had 3 adults and 2 kids the first trip out and there was plenty of room for everyone. Enjoy when yours comes in.
