Prewire allows RV owners to custom pick the specific model of their choice achieving Heartland’s ‘No Compromise’ mission
BURLINGTON, Iowa – (August 10, 2011) – Heartland RV, prides itself in designing and building some of the most innovative, luxurious, fifth-wheel recreational vehicles in the market to meet the “no compromise” type of customers that choose Heartland. This is no different with antennas. Today, Heartland RV announced its decision to partner with Winegard to prewire for TRAV’LER antennas on two of its 2012 models; the Bighorn and Landmark.
“Heartland RV chose to prewire for TRAV’LER antennas because Winegard has earned a solid reputation in the RV industry for reliability and unmatched antenna performance,” said Kary Katzenberger, Heartland RV Bighorn/Landmark general manager. “Since the antennas are provider specific, we do not want to make that choice for our customers; so instead we decided to do the next best thing and prewire the RVs for units, making them easier to install at the dealership. This also guarantees that the customer gets the exact antenna they want.”
Heartland and Winegard partnered together because dealers can struggle installing antennas at times. With the Bighorn and Landmark models already prewired, installation is made simpler.
“Heartland RV is one of the leading original equipment manufacturers in the U.S. and we’re proud to partner with a company that believes in no compromises,” said Aaron Engberg, director of mobile products at Winegard. “They recognized that without the prewire installations can be difficult for the dealer, as well as costly for the RV owner, both of which are being addressed because of Heartland’s dedication to quality customer service.”
TRAV’LER antennas provide the unique ability to view multiple satellites at the same time, allowing the RV owner to enjoy satellite TV in the RV just as they do at home. TRAV’LER antennas provide the strongest signal strength and receive maximum SD and HD programming. They work with DVRs and allow simultaneous viewing with different programs, something domes and most other mobile antennas can’t do.
Winegard Company designs and manufactures world class antenna products for both satellite and over-the-air multi-media signal reception. With more than 55 years of antenna design, testing and manufacturing experience, Winegard’s innovative solutions have shaped the industry for home, recreational vehicle, truck, marine, medical, and automotive antennas. Winegard also offers commercial VSAT 2-way antennas that provide real-time broadband communication solutions for extreme and remote environments to oil and gas industries and to military and emergency response teams. A pioneer in antenna technology, Winegard has designed more than 1,000 different antenna models with more than 60 product patents, making Winegard products the benchmark for quality and performance.
