Grand Design Imagine Review (a Travel Trailer for the Family)

Are you looking for a mid-sized trailer that can accommodate a family of five? The Grand Design Imagine is a worthy investment!

History

Grand Design was founded in 2012 by three industry veterans, Bill Fenech, Ron Fenech, and Don Clark. The veterans wanted to disrupt the RV industry.

They did this to help the industry focus on its clients, as they believed that the industry had lost touch with them. The trio wanted to offer a better RV-ownership experience.

The change in its business approach helped grow the company’s valuation, which led to its purchase by Winnebago Industries for $500 million in 2016.

Construction

When it comes to matters to do with construction, the Grand Design Imagine takes the mantle of the best-constructed travel trailer. It features a one-piece roof membrane, gel coated fiberglass exterior, and a one-year warranty.

Furthermore, its rear wall sidewalls and storage doors come with a laminated aluminum frame. The frame has been assigned an R-value of seven.

Its slide-out rooms feature the same frame on its walls and roof. On the other hand, its flooring has an R-value of thirty and features the laminated aluminum frame as well.

Please note that the manufacturer of the Grand Design Imagine has used fully laminated walls made using foam insulation instead of using soft fiberglass insulation.

RV experts have for many years stated that soft fiberglass insulation could occasionally settle, leaving behind uninsulated gaps on the floor and roof.

The Bottomline

Overall, and based on the reviews and comments I have found online, I think this is one travel trailer that will serve your family well. 90 percent of the reviews we have come across from Grand Design Imagine Owners have had a rating of four out of five.

I think this is a good rating compared to what others have received. The Grand Design team seems to care about its customers and has gone out of its way to provide them with anything they may need when on the move.

The travel trailer has lots of room, a great floor plan, and is quite functional in terms of design and functionality. All the available amenities and features are high-quality and well put together. I recommend assessing each dealership carefully before making your purchase.

Make sure to buy your Grand Design Imagine from a dealership you can trust.
