Grand Design Recreational Vehicle Company today announced its lightweight travel trailers.Imagine travel trailer

The Imagine travel trailer series is the follow up to the firm’s Reflection travel trailers and fifth wheels, flagship Solitude extended stay fifth wheels and popular Momentum toy haulers.

“Following the bar set by these brands, Imagine stays true to the company’s commitment of focusing on the customer to steer design and fuel innovation,” said General Manager Micah Staley.

With floorplans starting well under 6,000 pounds, Imagine travel trailers hit the towing sweet spot of today’s medium duty trucks and SUVs, he added

“We wanted Imagine to not only hit the weight goals, but do it without the compromise that so many feel forced to in the pursuit of lighter weight. Industry leading tank capacities, 30-by-36-inch walk in shower, 60-by-80-inch queen beds and 81-inch interior radius ceilings are just a few of the areas where customers will no longer have to sacrifice,” said Staley.”The early buzz from dealers and customers point to another home run for Grand Design.”

Imagine travel trailers debut on dealers’ lots the first week of August.
