Just wondering your personal experience with owning them & camping?

Please if you have never owned one & just wanna bash the TT LIne, dont waste our time.

I want to hear from people that own or have owned Piopneed TT's.

I hope you meant Pioneer and not Piopneed. But Yup! Purchased a 2018 Pioneer RL250 the size and setup we were looking for. Love our Pioneer>

Like all RV's, they are built to a price point. In this case it's about the lowest price point but that's fine as long as you're OK with it.
I don't think they have any more severe build issues (leaks, delam) than any other brand or PP.

I have a Heartland Trail Runner which used to be the entry level travel trailer Heartland offered. When I was at my dealer last summer, I inquired about the Pioneer. He said they are now the entry level travel trailer by Heartland. That isn't a bad thing. I went into a couple of them and they seemed to be quite nice from what I could tell.

took the wife today to see the 250RL Pioneer by Heartland after going to see the Wildwood by ForestRiver & we both agreed on the PI RL250 over the Wildwood.

The only 2 things I liked more on the Wildwood 27 RLSS was the larger Pass through storage door & the fact that it has many more cabinets inside than the Pioneer, but that is basically due to the fact that its about 4 feet longer.
& that gave the additional space for it.
But being I want as much bang for the buck & restricted by my storage parking space , we are choosing the Pioneer by Heartland RL250.
Right off the bat $5K cheaper.

I forgot to mention, even though the Pioneer is less expensive, at least the radiant heat underbelly is fully sealed with foam insulation & the valves tucked in.

The Wildwoods at $5K more do not have foam insulation to keep the heat in & have all the valves exposed on the outside & being we always do a big winter trip between the 22nd of Dec to about the 5 of Jan, I need the stuff warmer than colder.

I been through the frozen valve issues before.
