Based on one of its most popular floorplans, Heartland Recreational Vehicles is seeing strong consumer response for its new Gateway 3750PT luxury fifth-wheel, sporting four sliderooms, two true queen-size beds and a 60-square-foot side patio.
General Manager Paul Craven reported that the latest addition to the Gateway line is breaking new ground in the full-profile fifth-wheel marketplace.
“The 3750PT is one of just a few units to offer a side patio in a non-toy hauler floorplan,” Craven said in a press release. “It’s also the only fifth-wheel floorplan that offers two true queen beds – one in the front master bedroom and the other in a rear of the RV.
“We were able to accommodate a 60-inch-by-80-inch queen in the second bedroom by engineering a tilt mechanism that reduces the bed size when the two opposing slides are retracted. With the slideouts open, the room is approximately 13 feet wide.”
Craven noted that the Gateway 3750PT was adapted from Heartland’s hot-selling 3650 model, allowing for a quick rollout in time for the heart of the early show season. “The insight we gained from engineering and building world class toy haulers allowed us to adapt the side patio into a full-profile fifth-wheel,” he said.
Targeting growing families with two available bunkhouse sliderooms, the 41-foot fifth-wheel creates a spacious, homelike environment that extends to the outdoors with the side patio area.
“With the two bunk slides, it can sleep up to seven people,” Craven said. “Essentially, the patio creates an additional room, letting people get off the ground and still enjoy the outdoors.” Standard patio features include an overhead awning along with a large TV, built-in refrigerator and safety rails.
Sliding glass doors with a built-in screen lead from the patio into the 3750PT’s kitchen that is set off by solid-surface countertops and a “stone-look” base cabinet. The living area is outfitted for entertaining with spacious seating on a couch equipped with four recliners and a chaise lounge. A 40-inch TV is located in the kitchen for central viewing.
“The 3750PT has been selling extremely well on the consumer show circuit,” said Coley Brady, vice president of sales and marketing for Heartland, a subsidiary of Thor Industries Inc. “Our dealer partners are telling us that it creates a new niche in the rapidly growing full-profile segment, adding another value piece to their lineup.”
President Chris Hermon added, “The Gateway line continues to excel and deliver unbeatable floorplans that resonate with buyers. It is now the market leader in its segment, which was accomplished in just 2 1/2 years. More good things are coming soon for this brand.”
Other options on the 3750PT include a six-point electric leveling system, residential refrigerator, prep for a generator, dual pane windows and a king bed in the master suite.
Craven said that Heartland will be adding another “industry-first” floorplan in the coming months. For more information on the Gateway 3750PT visit the Heartland home page at heartlandrvs.com.
