Heartland RV LogoFans of Glendale’s Titanium cab-over front cap system for fifth-wheel units will be pleased to learn that Heartland RV is bringing it back. According to a release, Heartland RV will be incorporating the distinctive, aerodynamic design to its fifth-wheel lines.

Heartland announced that it had acquired the Titanium’s intellectual property from Glendale several months back after Glendale filed for bankruptcy. Glendale one dominated the Canadian fifth-wheel marketplace with its Titanium lineup and Heartland RV is clearly hoping there is still some interest in the brand.

“We acquired all the patents, so we will be the only company offering this highly innovative design,” says Coley Brady, vice president of sales for Heartland. “Everyone familiar with the industry – trade and consumer – recognizes the Titanium cab-over cap as one of those engineering advances that really impacts the market. We will be offering the Titanium front cap in our luxury Bighorn fifth-wheel brand along with the Road Warrior and Cyclone toy hauler lines.

heartland0330Heartland Recreational Vehicles LLC says it is expanding its operations and has plans to hire as many as 265 new workers by 2013.

The manufacturer plans to invest more than $2.6 million to buy and equip a 125,00 square foot manufacturing facility in Elkhart, Ind. This news comes after Heartland RV bought the remaining trademarks of the towable brands of Fleetwood Enterprises Inc. in February. Fleetwood filed for Bankruptcy in 2009.

Heartland RV, which currently employs more than 900 workers, says the new workers are necessary as it phases in new product lines.
