Milestone 379FLML by Heartland RV
With the Milestone 379FLML, Heartland RV has added a front lounge configuration to its fifth-wheel line which was introduced at the 2018 Elkhart Dealer Open House. The Milestone line, now four models deep, was developed as a brand that’s “heavy on features, light on weight and easy on the wallet,” said Rob Reid, regional sales manager for Heartland.
“We wanted to bring a new brand to the marketplace that had special features, special floorplans at a really value-based price to the dealer and to the retail buyer,” he said.
The 379FLML is a bath-and-a-half unit that measures 42 feet, 8 inches long with a UVW of 12,600 pounds and a 2,352-pound cargo capacity. The front living room offers sleeper sofas in opposing slides and theater seating opposite the front entertainment center. The half-bath is located mid-coach, just off the island kitchen, and includes a second set of opposing slides, with free-standing table and chairs in the campside slideout. The 70-by-80 king bed occupies the last slideout, which gives way to a three-piece rear bath.
Other highlights include a pair of ducted air conditioners, 55-inch television, residential refrigerator, and a heated enclosed underbelly.
“We also have a 13-foot, 6-inch straight roof line. That allows us to have 6-foot, 5-inch slide boxes and bigger windows throughout,” Reid pointed out, mentioning the 379FLML will fall right in line with the other Milestone units and carry an MSRP in the high $60,000-range.
