Heartland RVs is introducing its new mid-tier fifth-wheel model, Corterra, just in time for Elkhart Extravaganza.
Named for the Latin words “cor,” for heart, and “terra,” for land, Corterra represents the essence of what Heartland does best, the manufacturer said.
Corterra draws upon high-quality materials, construction, design and interior decor to create an RV aimed at long-term consumers.
Corterra’s exterior features include Goodyear tires with a built-in tire pressure monitoring system and 7,000-pound Dexter axles. It also comes with Dexter Tow Assist, which includes anti-lock braking, sway mitigation and a towable odometer, which provides trailer mileage so consumers can perform recommended maintenance at key intervals.
Corterra is built around a 10-inch I-beam frame with 2-inch crush tubes. A new aerodynamic front cap includes an expansive windshield. At the entry, solid steps by MORryde with an extended grab handle offer stability while walking through the tinted, all-glass entry door.
Corterra General Manager Jon Gust said: “Corterra’s construction is strong but lightweight, and features innovative new elements like the all-glass entry door and the panoramic window in the front cap. It is a capable, well-built RV wrapped in a beautiful exterior.”
Inside Corterra, residential amenities abound. The kitchen includes a lighted wine or coffee bar, a pull-out trash can and a hidden storage drawer. A residential appliance package provides a 30-inch over-the-range microwave, and a 16-cubic-foot refrigerator. A hidden pantry behind the entertainment center provides storage space in the mantel.
In the bedroom is a standard residential king bed, dual wardrobes, and dresser storage. Every Corterra model comes standard with washer and dryer prep.
“We have leaned into a more minimalist feel with Corterra,” Gust said. “The most important thing has been to perfect the essentials campers rate as the most important while maximizing every square inch of space.”
There are new dimmable lighted batten strips overhead throughout the coach. The light strips do not require placing holes in the ceiling for puck lights. A standard SOL 190 solar package gives consumers a source of renewable, low-maintenance energy.
Corterra includes features such as built-in pet bowls, hidden storage in the stairs and dinette seating, sleek hardware-free drawers and cabinets and flush-floor slides.
