Similar campers would use a smaller bed. The king bed makes room for pet or for tossing and turning without disturbing your partner.

The North Trail impresses with its construction choices. These include Azdel walls, which contribute to the RV’s overall durability and lighter weight. 

The plywood floor deck, rather than laminated, makes a solid and reliable foundation and helps avoid potential soft spots over time. 

The enclosed and heated underbelly extends your camping season.

Wide stance stability axles enhances towing stability and helps prevent structural issues while traveling.

North Trail’s Smart and Thoughtful Interior

Inside the North Trail, you’ll find many smart and thoughtful design elements that make camping cozy.

The RV is carpetless and uses marine woven flooring, which not only looks great but is easy to clean and pet-friendly. 

The spacious L-shaped kitchen peninsula creates lots of counter space for meal preparation. The large farm sink accommodates larger pots and pans.

  • Marine Woven Flooring
  • L-Shaped Kitchen Peninsula
  • Large Farm Sink
  • Single-Leg Table
  •  Individual Reading Lights
  • USB Plugs
  • Bunk Windows

The dinette area uses an, easy too adjust, single-leg table that’s easy to adjust. 

The booth-style dinette’s cushions come in a “selecta style” color palette, allowing you to choose between white and dark cushions to match your preferences. 

The bunk area is equipped with individual reading lights, USB plugs, and windows.

A Road-Ready RV

The North Trail 26BHSS is designed with travel in mind. It is designed to be half-ton towable and uses wide stance stability axles to reduce sway and enhance maneuverability. 

With a cargo capacity exceeding 3,000 pounds, we advise using a three-quarter-ton truck, especially if you plan to traverse more challenging terrains or mountainous regions. 

The RV comes with 200 watts of factory solar, ensuring a reliable power source even during off-grid adventures.

Why the Limited Availability? The Eastern Dilemma

While the 2023 North Trail 26BHSS Travel Trailer by Heartland RV is undoubtedly a sought-after model, its limited availability in the Eastern part of the United States raises questions for many potential buyers. 

Enthusiasts on the Eastern side wondering why this gem isn’t more readily accessible in their region while the demand for this well-designed RV continues to grow.

Heartland RV may need to consider expanding its production to meet the growing demand and delight camping enthusiasts all over the country.
