About Contributor

Grand Design RV is an award-winning manufacturer of travel trailers, fifth wheels, and toy hauler RVs. Founded in 2012, they’re a relative newcomer to the world of camper manufacturing but are making waves. 

Here, we provide an in-depth look at the Grand Design RV company, its entire lineup of towables, and provide several reasons why they might be your best choice for your next RV. 

Introduction to Grand Design RV

Grand Design RV may not have the household name recognition that some other manufacturers enjoy, but it’s been gaining in popularity since its founding and has even developed a good number of loyalists. 

Becoming increasingly well-known for their quality and affordability, Grand Design RV has grown constantly and recently celebrated the build of their 250,000th unit. 

This young RV manufacturer is building a lot of goodwill with their customers in large part because of their corporate motto: Do the right thing. Beyond that, there’s also a serious dedication to quality that extends from design to customer support.

Standout Grand Design RV Features

Image by Grand Design

Grand Design RV touts class-leading construction, and that includes the incorporation of several features that make these trailers both comfortable and high quality. That includes partnering with component manufacturers in the RV industry to include specific technologies that are beneficial for Grand Design RV’s trailers. 

Here are a few you’ll find on varying trailers. 

Racetrack Ducting

Their exclusive Racetrack Ducting system is designed to ensure the most efficient cooling possible. It’s available on Reflection, Solitude, and Momentum trailers. 

SuperChassis

Fifth wheels and fifth wheel platform toy haulers include SuperChassis, a system that adds strength to the chassis allowing for deeper slide rooms for more space and more stable jack placement. 

Lippert Components ABS 

In partnership with highly renowned Lippert—manufacturer of high-quality RV componentry—Grand Design RV helped develop an anti-lock braking system designed exclusively for travel trailers. 

Compass Connect

Compass Connect is an app developed by Grand Design RV that allows for remote control of certain aspects of your trailer through your smartphone. Lighting, slideouts, leveling, and awnings can all be controlled, and you can also run real-time diagnostics if you have an issue. 

Standard Solar

Most Grand Design RV trailers include fully implemented solar packages, with a roof-mounted panel, charge controller, and inverter prep. The size of the system depends on the RV. 

Arctic 4-Seasons Protection Package

The Arctic 4-Seasons package makes it possible to year-round in comfort, from anywhere. It includes a high-performance furnace and fireplace for 30,000 BTUs of heating power, plus heated holding tanks, a heated utility center, dual attic vents, and a tank heater controlled by a thermostat—and more. 

Grand Design RV’s Manufacturing History

Image by Camping World

Grand Design RV was founded in 2012 by Don Clark, Ron Fenech, and Bill Fenech, three men with over 60 years of combined experience in the RV industry. They focus on building travel trailers and fifth wheels and put as much emphasis on customer satisfaction and service as they do on construction quality and innovation in the industry. 

Just four years after their founding—and having experienced significant growth and accolades—Grand Design RV was acquired by Winnebago Industries. That influx of support, as well as Winnebago’s deep ties to the industry, positioned Grand Design RV to grow faster and focus even more on quality. 

Founder Don Clark is still affiliated with Grand Design RV, making certain the intentions behind his company stay true throughout the acquisition.

    Grand Design’s clam of building a four season RV with enclosed and heated underbelly is far from factual. My first camping adventure with the night temperatures in the upper 20′, the water froze in our Grand Design RV. Upon contacting customer service at Grand Design, I was told that I should have installed various types of protection around the RV to prevent freezing. Also, they denied their underbelly being heated. They DO NOT STAND BEHIND their products!
