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.

We purchased this RV NEW in Feb 22, 2023. We choose Grand Design because of family and friends who owned them and how pleased they were with them. At the time of the Dealership inspection prior to taking it off the lot, it was noted the refrigerator did not work. The dealer contacted the manufacturer and they replaced the refrigerator. However, that meant that our delivery date was Apr 06, 2023. So, we were making payments prior to receiving it. Love the floor plan, air conditioner works GREAT, Nice RV and smaller than our previous RVs. My husband loves towing it, very nice unit. During its third trip out in August of 2023, the slide quit working. We had our previous RV with two slides for ten years and never had an issue. On its third trip the slide refused to go in. Made awful noises, we had to manually push the slide in and pull it. We are in our sixties so no fun. Anyway, made a quick trip home and into the dealer for service on August 28th, 2023. Dealer assessed that slides were installed wrong! Just received our 5th Wheel back on November 9th. Still love the RV but very concerned about quality issues. Husband called Grand Design today to see if the warranty could be extended since we have only had the unit in our possession about 50% of the time, we have owned it (144 days out of 261 days). A week of that time the slide was a mess! Grand Design has said they will not extend the warranty as it is not OUT of warranty yet. I am hopeful that Grand Design will hold to its reputation and honor the unit past the one-year date. I am especially concerned about the slide.

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

This unit was great for our family. The floor plan has a surprising amount of space and storage for a short, 1/2 ton towable 5th wheel. My son loved his bunks and the separate rear bunkhouse made it easy to put him to sleep while still enjoying the rest of the unit. I tow with a 3500 diesel which is much larger than you need for this unit, but it still towed great, very stable. My family has had a Jayco and a Grand Design 5th wheel and we definitely liked the Grand Design floorplans better than the Jayco's, plus they don't run the toilet drain through your pass through compartment. Overall, we were very happy with this unit but we are looking to get something a little bigger for our family.

The 220RK is the smallest and lightest 5th wheel Grand Design RV has ever made and one of the smallest fifth wheels you will see on the road today. Most dealers here on RVtrader list the details incorrectly, so I will list them correctly. Most dealers list the freshwater tank as 52 gallons. This is wrong, it is actually 40 gallons. They also list the empty weight wrong, it is actually 6995 lbs. It only has a 2,000 cargo weight so fully (legally) loaded it weighs 8,995 lbs. This trailer and a few others are classified in as "Half-ton towable" but this is simply a marketing ploy and most experienced RV'ers recommend atleast a 3/4 ton to tow a 9,000 lb. trailer. I tow it with a 3/4 Superduty diesel which weighs almost as much as the trailer so it tows really well with zero sway even in high winds. Grand Design only sold about 300 of these trailers so they only produced them for 2 years, 2018 and 2019. 99% of them come with single-paned windows and the chaise couch which is terribly uncomfortable unless you're a tiny person. We ordered our 220RK in November of 2017. We custom ordered it with dual-paned windows and the optional "theatre seating" which is basically a triple recliner/couch with heat and massage and built-in cupholders. We also installed quite a few upgrades including solar, lithium batteries, a large inverter, a water softener, cell booster to name a few. We also changed out the Westlake "China bomb" tires and had a set of Goodyear Endurance tires installed. We have been traveling fulltime in this trailer (our home now) for the past 18 months and the only mechanical issue we've had is the water heater control board went bad, however Grand Design paid for a new one and we replaced the unit ourselves in about 5 minutes. The 220RK is the perfect size for a couple with no kids or large pets. We purposely chose a trailer under 30 feet to ensure we could fit into all national and state parks and most RV parks and campgrounds. We have towed this trailer over 12,000 miles around the US several times over the past year and a half and have always been able to park it in any spot we wanted, while we watch other people with larger RVs get turned away or drive around in circles all day looking for a spot they can fit into. This trailer has a lot of storage and the tanks are basically heated since they are in the same area as the furnace. We dry camp a lot, this means out in the woods with no hookups, and we've camped in temps down to the single digits and have never had any problems with water lines or tanks freezing which like I said is due to the furnace being in the same area as the tanks and the water controls and valves. The only thing I would suggest if you buy one is replace the tires with Goodyear or Sailun (MUCH better quality than what it comes with) and upgrade the piece of junk TCL TV that comes in all the Grand Design trailers. We gave ours away to a park ranger that was super nice and we installed a Samsung 40" with a nice soundbar and subwoofer, which incidentally, fits perfectly behind the couch! Overall we've been very happy with this little fifth wheel and we would buy another Grand Design in the future.

We bought our 5th wheel on Jun 3rd. 2 days later we went to the dealerships preferred business to get our hitch mounted. We had an appointment and they were ready for us when we got there. After the hitch was done we had an appointment to do our walkthrough. The walkthrough was WAYYYY to fast for us to comprehend anything. It was a whirlwind. This is our first camper so we really didn't know. Don't allow the sellers to hurry you through a walkthrough. Thank God my husband had studied our hitch. The business that put it in didn't set it up for a shortbed truck. The dealership fixed it but it's things like this that cause people to get their 5th wheel up against the side of their truck. We ended up taking posession with hail damage. Not bad hail damage but we didn't see it while it was out in the daylight at the dealership. Hail damage in Cheyenne is on just about all of the vehicles there. We've had it out 3 times on weekends only. We don't plan to live in it at this time. After our 1st outing we had to take it in for a few different reasons. We bought ours in Cheyenne WY and we live in western Nebraska. It's 110 miles to the dealership. We got there,they looked at my list & they fixed every item within a couple of hours & that allowed us to get home before the hail hit on that very day. Golf ball size hail is very damaging. The day we bought it I put a journal in it so we could keep up with any problems & the money we are putting into it. My biggest thing is that during travel the big window behind our recliners, the window in the booth & the large window in the bedroom come unlocked. They don't come open far but they're unlocked. I think I've seen just about every inch of it & everything works. My parents have traveled allover through the years and have never put a drop of water from anywhere without an additional water filter into their campers/ motorhomes. We could not believe what was in that filter when we changed it. Our gray & black tanks are empty but the black always shows 2/3 full. Seems like everyone has those problems. It just so happened that when we emptied the black tank toilet paper was covering the sensors. We took the filtered water and ran water through the toilet and it fixed our problem. Overall we are really happy with it. Living in it would be very different. Daily wear & tear on it would be much different than a home. It's just my husband and I but being in it daily I may have a different feeling about every.

Total s*** the steel I beams in the back look like they were rusted before they were painted and then put in the camper very disappointed I have to insulate the whole bottom of the belly pan myself When someone tells you are 40 you're thinking there should be some type of insulation in their correct they throw some space blanket over the water tank thinking that's going to take care of the heater what a bunch of s*** I hope somebody reads this before they buy one the amount of money I spent on this it should be spray foamed on the bottom the mattress that was in it total piece of s*** had to go get a new one right away man when you spend money like this on an RV you expected to be good I wish I could reconsider my choice too late now dollars are already in their hands.
