We bought a 2016 lance TT 2295 after looking at the quality of the constructions of the Lance trailers on line as well as looking at a bunch of other trailers(a bunch). Our dealer went through the whole trailer with us in 1 hour and 40 minutes...Great dealership. I recorded the walk through using my cell phone in case I forgot something later. This trailer cost us a little more but we have had another manufactured trailer in the past and it didn't hold up (many problems). We have had the Lance 2295 trailer since Nov 2016 and have taken it camping 3 times. I tow it with a 2000 GMC 1500 z71 sierra pick up. Tows no problem...definitely get a load distribution hitch. We love the floor plan and cooking breakfast with the outdoor kitchen is an awesome feature for bacon and eggs!( Grease cleans up easy using the outdoor sink and doesn't mess up the interior kitchen) We would not buy another one with out it. The exterior gas connections works great for our portable gas grill. We bought a 10 ft. gas extension hose...works great. We did manage to bake and cook inside (roast dinner) stove and oven and all worked as advertised. Microwave works great and can heat up your coffee really well (30 seconds worked for me). Since new we have had some problems but were fixed by the dealership under warrenty. We had a bad awning led strip light, (bad connector shorted the LED strip light)fixed...now works great. Leaking bathroom ceiling near sky light. Unit was resealed...no more leaks. The door to the bath room binds and was repaired. I was told by a rv salesmen friend that trailers sometimes sit on dealers lot for over a year and the usual maintenance (sealant, calking)gets over looked. After these items were fixed have no other problems. The awning opens with one press of the button and has a built in sensor that senses extreme wind and will automatically close during a windy day to prevent damage to your awning. I tested it and it worked really well. Heating system works well, fantastic fan is a great feature as it brought in more air with it. We added vent covers installed on the roof to allow the vents to remain open all the time. Hot water heats up rather quick in either electric or gas. two people were able to take a 8 to 10 minute shower. The interior fire place is awesome feature as you do not have to use your propane to heat your trailer using your gas heater when connected to RV campground park power. Since your paying for electricity on a campground why use your gas. The slide works well (slide opens in a precise manner) and having it opens up the living room area quite well, its very comfortable with 2 people and 2 dogs. we managed to sit 4 adults around the kitchen table no problem and it felt solid and did not wobble when you moved around. Bed is not the greatest(hard mattress) we bought a 3 inch foam pad and problem solved and sleep is restored. There is allot of storage space in this trailer. There is more then enough storage for us. Plenty of power outlets and USB connections to charge your electronic equipment. The 32in HD LED TV power antenna is awesome and picks up local channels in HD better then the park cable at the campground we just went to. We also bought a Google Chrome cast to stream Netflix via the campground wifi...works great. It basically turned our TV into a smart TV. We also used our cell phone hot spot wifi connection for times when we didn't have the free wifi provided by the campground. The interior cabinets hold all we need and the pantry with the slide (lockable) tray is fantastic as food storage. Most drawers have a locking feature to prevent them from opening and allowing your items to be fall out while driving. The windows let in a lot of light and as a result our camper didn't feel like a dark cave. We have used this camper in the rain ( A lot of rain) and we love being able to open the frameless windows with out the rain coming in. Cleaning the trailer is also easy with no carpet and the flooring material has so far been good. The build quality is exceptional...compared to others we have seen (no trim strips to cover up errors in craftsmanship). One feature I would have loved would have been the to have the trailer pre wired for solar charger. But this shouldn't be too much of a problem to do. So far we are really pleased with the trailer even after the birthing pains with lights and leak and hope to put many miles on 5this trailer for years to come.

I really liked all the clever design features on this rig. The large sink, and 3 closets and under-bed storage really make use of the space in a very efficient way. The composting toilet is 100 times better than having to deal with dumping black water and all the accompanying smells and mess. Solar setup is great and can last several days without sunshine with the Tesla battery system. I love it!

We purchased a 3 year old Lance 1995 from a dealership who had taken it in on a trade-in for a larger unit. We saw it prior to the shop going over it and it was very clean and obviously not used much plus it had orginally been purchased at the same dealership. This assured us in that the product and dealership had return customers and that it had been well taken care of. The high cost for Lance is touted to be due to it being a far superior product. Fast forward several months and we find that both the fan over the bed AND the skylight in the bathroom are leaking. We are then told by the dealership that this is a “known” issue with Lance and 4 season only means the undercarriage. We are not new to RVs and have over many years had many different rigs. We have NEVER had an issue of leakage like this (around the inside seal, it is full of water), especially on a unit only 3 years old. Be warned. Lance is not the “Quality” they tout and at least this dealership knows it.

The Lance 1985 is perfect for a couple/small family. The layout is great and the quality of the construction is top notch. It has a nice bathroom with a large shower. It also has plenty of inside and outside storage.

We purchased our Lance 2285 in July 2016. This is the first travel trailer we have ever owned and we did a LOT of research prior to making our purchase. We also read a lot of reviews which I think are very helpful. I give the overall Lance experience a strong "B" I had higher expectations based on the price and quality reputation. The positives seem to be common among owners. The low profile and tandem axle pulls smoothly. Storage is also a plus with large outside storage compartments up front and in the slide. Fit and finish inside are high quality. The negative has been the leaks, which appear to be a common complaint among Owner reviews. Our shower leaked from day one which turned out to be a broken fitting from the factory. Our bedroom roof vent leaked with the first big rain storm to the point we had to cancel our trip. We have also had problems with our Atwood water heater but I don't hold Lance responsible for appliances. An electrical socket broke but Lance sent me a new one ASAP. Overall, I think all trailers, regardless of price are going to have issues, especially when you think about the amount of vibration they endure going down the highway 65 MPH. On a scale of 1-5 with 5 being the best I give Lance a 4.

Initially I liked the sleeping capacity of 7 in a 23 foot trailer, lets me take friends or extended out with my own. First couple months we used it a lot, then it got cold - Heater didn't work, dealer repaired - Then the batteries died - Apparently even in 2016 they don't use a charger with a controller so I fried the batteries by having it plugged in so much - Self upgrade with a PD9260 and 4 golf cart batteries. 1.5 years with it and I noticed that the shore water hookup area was leaking - Found that it was the elbow used to connect the outside faucet under the shower pan. For some reason they think a Pex fitting will work with a nylon braided hose with a pex crimp ring... Obviously this isn't a good idea as nylon braided hose has different structural qualities over Pex pipe... Replaced with a Pex to MFP type fitting and used a braided stainless steel faucet hose from Home depot to replace the nylon hose. Did all three under the shower pan as I don't want to remove it again. Then that week we spent 7 days on the Oregon coast.. The fantastic vent above our bed developed a leak. It was our last night so I just used a Towel to soak up the water and brought it home to deal with. Parked in its spot is pretty flat got up on the roof and noticed that there is a huge puddle of water near the fantastic vent and the AC. Not sure what to do about the roof leak yet... I'm out of warranty so I'll call the dealer and see what they suggest but I doubt they'll offer any assistance. Will likely just trade it in on Grand Design bunk model..
