We bought this trailer 2 years old and have had it 3 years ourselves. The original buyer must have had all the initial problems fixed because we have had ZERO problems with it, We take long weekends with it about 6 times a year and it is also used as overflow space from May to October at our mountain cabin. Our previous 5th wheel floorplan no longer worked and I considered just selling it without replacing it until I saw the updated bunkhouse RV models. My wife had come to dislike using our old trailer but LOVES this Grand Design because the bathroom is now up front and the bunk beds are in a separate bedroom in the rear. Now grandkids can take naps during the day and we can still be inside. This model has an unbelievable amount of kitchen countertop space and I like having countertop space along side the stove so I can have ingredients right there ready to add to the pot, and plates right there ready to dish out the meal, etc. I do have several complaints about design features, some of these GD has revised in newer years. For me, some I have remodeled myself, and some still left to do. The build quality is very good, design and liveability is average. There was a lot of hidden wasted space in the bunk house and a cubby was inset above a stack of 4 drawers. This cubby shelf was only made of cheap paneling so it was only good for pillows. Behind those drawers was another 12 inches of empty space. And the top bunk was very narrow, I was afraid somebody would roll over and fall off it. So my woodworking brother built entirely new full depth drawers that hold a ton more items and we put the "cubby" on the floor so that I could store cases of bottled water out of the way. There was a drawer under the bottom bunk but behind it was about 8 to 10 sq feet of hidden empty space. I removed the drawer and opened up that space for more bottled water and big bags of charcoal, etc. We framed out the top bunk to make it as wide as the bottom bunk to make it safer and more comfortable. The only heater vent in the living room was in the rear by the bunkhouse door so the front area was colder. Other Reflection models have a heater vent in the steps to the front bedroom so I put one in myself. The heater vent for the bathroom/front bedroom was a horrible design and not efficient so I put in flexible ducts to properly distrubute heat to the bedroom vent. The kitchen in my 2018 only has drawers under the counters so there isn't a good place to put pots & pans. Newer models had a fireplace put in there and that took up even more storage. Now the fireplace is gone and GD has put in real cabinets for pots/pans and added other drawers. That's a much better setup than I have. I may convert some of my drawers to cabinets. I didn't like having to open a cabinet door to get to the control panel to turn on the living room lights, so I moved the switch next to the thermostat and made it a dimmer switch. There was only ONE usb charging port in the whole trailer. That's crazy. So I put one in the nightstand in the front bedroom and one in the living room in an overhead cabinet. We dry camp a lot and run off 12v so I needed those usb plugs. I've beefed up some of the areas GD cheaped out on, such as the plastic saddle pans in the pass through storage. There was no support under them so they would break and stuff would fall onto the road so I could run it over. The wall divider in the pass through was flimsy paneling so I put in 3/4 inch plywood so I could mount battery terminals and other things to it. The shower control valves had no structural support behind them and the whole shower flexed and would eventually crack. So I carefully cut out the panel in the closet to put in extra wood framing to prevent the shower enclosure from flexing and screwed the shower controls to that framing. Reinstalled the closet panel with screws in case I ever need access again. I put 4 deep cycle batteries in and I have 2 200 watt solar panels that I place on the ground in the sun to charge them. I like to park the trailer itself in the shade to keep it cool, so roof mounted solar panels wouldn't work. I can move the panels to get the best angle. I have a quick connect on the wire from the panels to the solar controller so it's easy to connect them. Now the trailer is almost exactly how I want it.

Grand Design advertises a four-season trailer with a dedicated heat duct in the fully-enclosed insulated underbelly. During a camping trip, daytime temperatures were in the 50s and during the night temperatures dropped into the upper 20s. That night our water froze in the bathroom (shower, lavatory and commode) with the furnace running and maintaining a temp around 70 in the camper. Contacted Grand Design and was told that their advertised information would not be honored. Their customer service is a joke. The managers are not knowledgeable about their products but have numerous lame excuses why they won't admit a possible error during manufacturing my rv. Do not buy a Grand Design product!

I have a 2018 Grand Design 2800BH and have been dealing with a delaminating wall issue since early 2020.I have had to deal with a few different people at Grand Design and have not found a suitable option to fix this issue. The option for us to get the unit to them on our cost is not good enough, I need someone there to help come up with better option to fix this that doesn't cost me over$6000 in shipping charges alone. The wall is now delaminating all the way down from the top corner down to the bottom, to the point where I can push on the loose fiberglass and clearly see it moving from the glue letting go and I and now scared to even use the RV or pull it anywhere for fear it may get worse and worse as we drive. This wall issue has caused so much stress for us and has really taken the joy and excitement out of the camping and RV owning experience, I cannot afford to ship it to you, I cannot sell or even trade the trailer in the way it is and now don't want to use it for risk of the wall delamination getting worse. I assumed that Grand Design set out to build quality rv's and that's why we chose Grand Design and we love this trailer but I really need you guys to help me make this right. The wall should not be coming apart after minimal use. I am hoping there are some options we can agree upon. I know Grand Design is known for top notch service which was a huge deciding factor for us and we want to be able to rant and rave about the amazing service and products from grand design but we really need some help on repairing this issue.

Our Grand Design Solitude 375RES has truly been a joy. We have had practically no issues with this pre-pandemic manufactured unit since we received it. I personally like all the storage space available. This camper is full of luxury. We have mostly kept the unit on a seasonal site, but have travelled with it on occasion. We had upgraded to the unit with the MoRyde 8K Independent Suspension and Disc Breaks. We also installed an additional bi-directional storage tray and RV Cord rollup up unit. The camper handles like a dream and is a true pleasure to tow.

Wife and I have been living in the trailer as we travel the country for the past 3 years. Pros: We’re happy with the space, comfort and livability. We like the floor plan and the kitchen work space is efficient. It’s surprising how much stuff we have stored in here. The trailer pulls fine and is easy to manage the maintenance. We’ve spent weeks at higher elevations where temperatures got in the 20’s overnight. No problems with freezing using the propane furnace. Annual maintenance service has been great. We had one repair after an inattentive driver bumped the back and poked a hole in the outer wall. Dealer promptly fixed it—replaced the back wall with an improved version and they had it back to us the next day. Cons: our exterior black water valve stuck open / was hard to close, so I ended up replacing it. The grey water valves work fine. We have trouble raising and lowering the dining table for the bed when our grandkids stay overnight — but that could just be our problem and not a flaw.

We purchased a Grand Design Reflection 220RK, 5th wheel RV in September of 2018. It has been one problem after another with this RV. In Sept of 2019 I had to take it into the dealer to have the drawers and pantry shelves repaired, as they were coming apart. The plastic wheel skirts kept breaking. I am on my 3rd set and they are broken also. From there it was other issues that needed to be repaired or replaced. The problems got bigger and more expensive to repair, a thousand dollars here and there. I took it back to the dealer on January of 2022, to repair a leaking shower drain. The dealer told me the damage was caused by the furnace heat exchanger that was too close to the shower pan, causing it to melt. That repair for the shower pan replacement and to move the heat exchanger back away from the new shower pan cost us $1,107.50 that time. I notified GD by email about this poor design and the expense I incurred to correct
