2014 Grand Design Momentum 380TH Toy Hauler Review
Grand Design raises the bar for toy haulers
With three floorplans to choose from, we decided to explore the 380TH. It has a gross vehicle weight rating of 19,500 lbs. and a dry weight of 15,300 lbs. Its hitch weight is 3,500 lbs. and its cargo carrying capacity is 4,000 lbs. Momentum’s exterior width is 101”, exterior height is 13’5” and exterior length is 42’2”. For liquids, the 380TH has a fresh tank capacity of 112 gallons, grey tank capacity of 100 gallons, black tank capacity of 62 gallons, and a water heater capacity of 12 gallons.
Moving on to construction, the 2014 Grand Design Momentum is built upon an aluminum cage. It features three slides, which expand the rooms within the space. The Momentum comes with an exterior travel centre, equipped with winterize and sanitize systems. It also includes a whole-house water filter system. It features 50 AMP and a 75AMP converter system. The generator prep comes with an hour meter and a start switch. The Momentum also features frameless windows, satellite prep and thick slam-latch baggage doors. Momentum’s exterior has security lights and a painted front cap, equipped with LED lighting. Finished off with a Lamilux 4000 high-gloss gel coat, the 2014 Grand Momentum 380TH will turn heads on the road.
Let’s talk about the most important room in the house: the garage. With an 8’ rear ramp door, rear cargo loading lights and optional rear awning, the Momentum provides ample space for your toys. The protective diamond plate will take care of any bumps and scratches, while the Tuff-Ply gas/oil resistant floor decking will keep your floors in top shape. There are 2,500 lbs. rated tie-downs and an optional rear screen wall enclosure. The Momentum is equipped with a heat vent and AC vents. You can also request a garage air conditioner. If you’re travelling with a large group, request a Happi-Jac bed/dinette lift system. For your comfortable living needs, Momentum’s garage is equipped with custom embroidered chairs, a 32” LED TV with theatre system sound bars, and an AM/FM/CD/DVD/Bluetooth entertainment system.
Once you walk up the aluminum “no rust” entry steps, you’ll open the entry door and find yourself in a cozy living room. Decorated with warm colors and furnished with residential furniture, you’ll feel like royalty in your fifth wheel. The cabinets have solid cherry doors and hidden hinges. The space is lit with LED puck lighting. The tinted windows come with nightshades. The living area features an AM/FM/CD/DVD entertainment system, equipped with Bluetooth and home theatre speakers. If you prefer the company of a good book, then you can relax on the sofa and read by the fireplace.
Instead of driving to your favourite fast food joint, utilize your spacious kitchen. Equipped with a 30” microwave, 22” oven and 3-burner range, your cooking options have no limits. Wash veggies in the stainless steel kitchen sink and chop them on the solid service counters. Store all your dry foods and condiments in the large pantry. When dinner is ready, serve it at the dinette, located across from the entertainment centre.
Momentum’s bathroom is as luxurious as its kitchen. The one-piece fiberglass Maxi Shower includes a skylight and a shower seat. There’s a porcelain toilet and a residential vessel sink. The medicine cabinet features a mirrored door and provides you with ample room to fulfill your grooming needs. The bathroom includes a heat vent, AC vent and a power fan. You can store fresh towels in the spacious linen closet.
When you’re ready to call it a day, escape to your bedroom. The 380TH comes with a Queen bed but you can upgrade to a King. The Everpedic mattress will give you a good night’s sleep. If you’re travelling with a large group, utilize the pullout ottoman, located at the end of the bed. With a shirt closet, under-bed storage and a walk-in closet, all your storage needs will be exceeded. The bedroom also comes with washer/dryer prep so you no longer have to make pit stops at Laundromats.
Under the Momentum Catalyst Package you get the comforts of a wheeled luxury home. The package provides you with a 12” I-beam chassis that includes a Mega Storage compartment. You also get the Onboard Energy Management System and Central Vacuum System. The package equips your toy hauler with Equa-Flex adjustable suspension, hydraulic front landing gear and electric rear stabilizing jacks.
The Grand Design Momentum 380TH Toy Hauler sells for around $105,000. For more information visit: www.granddesignrv.com.
