Grand Design Imagine Review Summary

Overall and based on my online research, I think the Grand Design Imagine travel trailer is a very good travel trailer. On average, it is getting a 4-star rating which is very good compared to other similar travel trailers, Grand Design themselves seems to take customer service seriously, and from what I’m reading they seem to be very responsive to customer issues.

The Grand Design Imagine has lots of room, the floor plan design are very functional. The available features and amenities are high-quality. Like all other travel trailer manufacturers, there’s a chance you might end up with one that’s not well put together.

Keep that in mind, as it is usually not a sign of the entire line. Make sure you are dealing with a reputable dealer who can address any issues you may have with the Grand Design Imagine in an expedient manner.
