In this post we are happy to share the nuts and bolts construction review of the Grand Design Reflection. You can find specific model tours/reviews, such as the 303 RLS here as well. But we all know that no matter how tempting it is to just focus on the floor plan and finishes we must know more about construction.
The best thing about doing research and sharing videos on these topics is that we are always learning something new. It may be because things change or it can be because someone has shared new information with us, (which we fully encourage, we just need to see information sources to go with opinions).
One piece of new info that came up since we filmed this video was that each manufacturer calculates their R Values differently, so it is really hard to compare them. Grand Design uses a reflective foil as well as different types of insulation products (foam or fiberglass). The reflective foil reflects but as I understand it, it doesn’t actually insulate, so that’s how those numbers get funny.
Another change that we learned about was starting mid 2017 Grand Design began using Dexter axels. I was not told what the reason for this change was but I guess they felt it would be a change for the better and you can expect Dexter axels on today’s Grand Design trailers.
We did this review on a 2018 Grand Design Reflection in November of 2018 at Camper Clinic in Rockport, Texas. You can get more information on the Reflection from Camper Clinic or Grand Design themselves.

Please remember that these are just our opinions based on our research, (you can have your own) and we receive absolutely NO COMPENSATION from any manufacturer or dealership to say anything we say. It’s just us and our thoughts and opinions.
