Welcome to part two of our blog on Heartland fifth wheels. As we said last week, Heartland builds some of the highest quality RVs on the highways today, making them perfect for lifestyle RVers. In their luxury line, which includes the Bighorn and Big Country models, you can choose from a wide variety of floor plans and amenities that will accommodate the activities you love the most. If, however, you need even more space for an office, workshop or craft room, Heartland’s fifth wheel toy haulers can give you that extra square footage you’re looking for. Their Cyclone, Road Warrior and Torque models are the perfect blend of luxury living with a separate workspace.
Thinking Outside the Box-Traveling Office or Craft Room
Heartland’s toy haulers have always been designed to be flexible for multi-lifestyle families. Of course they have the same quality construction and luxurious features that have made this manufacturer renowned in the industry, but they also have that added “garage” that is traditionally used for ATVs, motorcycles and other vehicles. In the past few years, however, RVers around the country have been reappropriating that garage space and turning it into mobile offices, quilting rooms, workshops, art studios, tool and supply storage, and more. Close off the garage and enjoy an evening with friends in your homey living room, gathered around your beautiful electric fireplace, or catch the game on the large screen TV and set out the tailgate party beneath your patio. But when it comes time to get some work done, you’ll have your private oasis to retreat to. And the best part is that when it’s beautiful outside, you can just drop down the back ramp of your toy hauler, close the screen door, and fill your office or craft space with the sounds and smells of nature while you enjoy that wide open view of your beautiful campsite. The options for personalizing this former garage space are practically limitless.
Not Sure Where to Begin? Check Out What Other RVers Have Done
If you’re not sure where you would begin on creating your perfect workroom, all you have to do is “Google It” to find great ideas. Check out blogs like “ A Toy Hauler Can be More Than a Garage! Build A Full Time RV Crafter’s Room”. Doyle and Terri Johnson, of Full Time RV Road Warriors, converted their 8 x 14 Heartland Road Warrior garage into a combination office, crafting area and sunroom that we’re sure will inspire you… and they’ve kindly included step-by-step photos to show you their process.
Karen, a blogger at the Fun Times Guide, also has some great advice for creating hobby space in her blog “ Fulltime RVing: Finding Space For Your Hobbies, Crafts & Fun Stuff.” As a crafter who does demos in retail stores, she knows exactly how to make the most of every inch of space her fifth wheel offers so that her craft never suffers, no matter what highways or byways she’s travelling.
And of course don’t forget one of our favorite sources for inspiration: Pinterest. Try searches for Studios on Wheels or RV Studios to see some great ideas.
Cyclone, Road Warrior and Torque
There are a number of qualities that have long made Cyclone and Road Warrior toy haulers so perfect for creating office or craft space, starting with Heartland’s insistence on building high quality RVs that have flexible floorplans, excellent carrying capacity (they are, after all, built to hold ATVs), and garages that range from 10 to 18 feet long, so you can choose exactly what you need. These models also provide lifestyle RVers with the luxury amenities that make life on the road that much better—full kitchens and baths, master suites, central vacuum systems, cozy electric fireplaces, large screen TVs, handcrafted woodwork, the list goes on and on.
For a combination of best value and livability, also be sure to check out Heartland’s latest toy hauler, the Torque. The garages in this line run 10 to 13 feet long, and they have the same excellent separation of space that gives the living area a homey, residential feel, while still providing you with a versatile office or workshop. A nice addition to the Torque fifth wheel toy hauler is the optional rear ramp patio; this will provide you with over 64 square feet of raised, covered space where you can set up another work table or add a bistro table for lunch on the patio.
A Heartland Cyclone, Road Warrior or Torque toy hauler can take your RV lifestyle to a new level, whether you’re on the road for your job, or enjoying your retirement to the fullest. As with their other fifth wheels, Heartland works to keep the price on their toy haulers accessible, so also be sure to keep your eye out for pre-owned models that might offer you everything you need at the most affordable price.
