62 • RV PRO • July 2018 rv-pro.com R V M A N U F A C T U R E R S Cyclone kitchens are designed to be multi-functional with the most storage and countertop space in the industry. Cyclone offers rear patio options on all models and side patios on select models. Heartland made many of the same improvements with its Torque brand. Meanwhile, Heartland used its experience with high- er-end fivers and incorporated the needs and wants of those end users into Road Warrior with features not tradition- ally found in toy haulers. These include a 50-amp power cord reel, Zero G entry steps and larger Furrion oven and cooktop. Heartland also improved the TV location, placing it more ergonomically correct versus being placed up high. Additionally, Heartland improved the kitchen cabinet layouts; created a unique look with an "infinity lighting" slide-out fascia and silver metallic painted cabinet doors; and upped the quality of the kitchen backsplash. What's more, three floorplans offer swivel bar stools with gran- ite-look seats that fold up for storage. "Individually, these don't seem significant. However, collectively consumers are wowed by the changes and realize this is not the traditional 'toy hauler look and feel.' There does not have to be a sacrifice on features and look in this segment," Eberlein says. These new features did not significantly impact Road Warrior's retail prices, according to Eberlein. "It's been a segment we've led in the industry, so we wanted to stay in that same space. We are very conscientious where our prices land with consumers," he says. The response right out of the gate was rewarding. Heart- At left: new features in the Road Warrior include a 50-amp power cord reel, Zero G entry steps and a larger Furrion oven and cooktop.
