Grand Design RV
“We are excited to debut the latest enhancements and additions for all of our brands at this year’s Open House,” says Peter Kinden, general manager of Grand Design RV (GDRV). “From new floorplans, exclusive features along with a whole new look for some of the brands. We’ll also be unveiling products in new market segments to complement our current lineup. We are certain all of the new and /or improved enhancements and introductions will be a big hit with both our dealers and our customers.”
A newly named, price aggressive segment is coming to the Solitude fifth wheel lineup that will offer a feature-rich story. The new brand is introducing two layouts at Open House. The purpose behind the new brand is to offer the luxury fifth wheel segment and GDRV owners a price-conscious, feature-heavy option that goes hand-in-hand with Solitude.
The current Solitude lineup is also introducing two new models this fall, starting with the 417KB that features a spacious front bath and flush floor rear kitchen. Solitude is also introducing the new and anticipated 370DV.
“The new Solitude 370DV, a spin on our No. 1-selling 310GK, includes the crowd-favorite dual vanity bathroom of the 390RK,” says Tommy Hall, product manager for Solitude.
A slew of features will be new to the brand. Along with an upgraded, lithium-focused solar package, Solitude will offer 8,000-pound ABS brake axles to highlight the fall changes. On the interior, owners will have an exclusive residential “Smart Sink” kitchen sink with a built-in cutting board, strainer, glass and waterfall rinser, sprayer and knob-controlled drain, plus an APEX furniture redesigned booth dinette as a new option for all floorplans. A drastically expanded front gooseneck and “hidden storage” give RVers more space for valuables.
In addition to new features, Solitude owners can opt for a highly anticipated and innovative work desk/dinette hybrid setup, and TravlFi-ready internet.
New to the Reflection brand is the “100 Series,” a more price-conscious fifth wheel with MSRPs starting around $50,000. The brand’s sister 150 Series has a price tag starting around $63,000.
“This new subsegment will help the brand hit a growing price point in the fifth wheel market. It will also appeal to the increasing number of customers looking to purchase shorter floorplans,” says Tony Lizzi, product manager for Reflection.
Models in the 100 Series will range in length from 26-feet-11-inches to 32-feet-3-inches. The lineup will debut three floorplans, with the 22RK as the shortest, followed by the 27BH bunkhouse layout and 28RL double-slide that measures 30-feet-11-inches.
In addition to the new 100 Series, Reflection will debut its 362TBS fifth wheel as part of their standard Reflection fifth wheel lineup. The model will feature two bedrooms that will “appeal to customers looking to sleep adults and/or grandchildren that may be staying with them for limited or extended periods of time,” Lizzi says.
Coming to standard Reflection fifth wheels are flush floor galley slides and an upgraded “Chef Collection” oven from Furrion to provide a more comfortable cooking environment. Interior flush mount lighting will be upgraded and available on all standard Reflection fifth wheels and travel trailers.
All Reflection travel trailers and fifth wheels (excluding the 100 Series) will offer the following new features for 2024:
- 12-volt Distribution Hub
- Pet-friendly RVs
- Dedicated kitchen trash can storage and silverware drawer
- Water shutoff valves for shower, toilet and all sinks
- “Easy Entry” RVs
New 2024 options for the Reflection brand include the TravlFi Wi-Fi system for all travel trailers, 150 Series and standard fifth wheels.
“This is an onboard Wi-Fi solution that allows customers to choose between many flexible data plans while also not limiting themselves to one single provider,” Lizzi says.
“The entire Imagine team has been diligently working on the pursuit of fine-tuning our core floorplans with design and feature enhancements,” says Eric Landis, product manager for Imagine. “We are also very eager to highlight new floorplan concepts we believe will be essential for our future success and growth within the travel trailer market.”
The brand’s 2024 focus is on elevating current floorplans and introducing concepts to align with its three segments: Imagine, XLS and AIM.
“Imagine has positioned itself within the travel trailer market as a leader in innovation and refinement. Our dealer partners and retail customers will be elated to know we are seizing the opportunity and elevating our standard features,” Landis says.

Three new floorplans will be introduced in the G-Class fifth wheel segment for 2024 – the 325G, 355G and 415G. The first two will target the Open Box market, while the 415G offers an enclosed 14-foot garage and incredible amount of living and kitchen space at the G-Class price point.
