The Grand Design Imagine is a lightweight trailer that makes road trips comfortable and stress-free, allowing you to enjoy nature and let your imagination run wild.

Out of six floorplans, we’ve decided to explore the 2800BH. It has an unloaded vehicle weight of 5,685 lbs, hitch weight of 680 lbs and gross vehicle weight rating of 7,495 lbs. It has a length of 32’0” and height of 10’11”. For liquids, it has a fresh water capacity of 52 gallons, grey water capacity of 71 gallons and waste water capacity of 39 gallons.

Built to last, the Grand Design Imagine won’t quit on you in tough weather conditions. Its aluminum cage construction features laminated aluminum-framed rear walls, sidewalls, end walls and roof. The 5” radius wood-framed roof has a one-piece roof membrane, which comes with a 12-year warranty. Insulated storage doors come with magnetic storage and entry door latches. The Larger than Life Package provides you with a walk on roof, diamond plate front guard, aluminum entry steps and pass-through storage compartment. The Power Package adds motion sensor pass-through lighting and motion sensor entry lighting.

Inside, the Grand Design Imagine perfectly combines nature with modern décor. Large panoramic windows remind you that you’re in the wild outdoors, while the residential décor reminds you that you’re right at home. Pre-drilled and screwed cabinetry features frosted glass cabinet door inserts, solid core cabinet stiles, solid hardwood drawer fronts and drawers with ball bearing full extension drawer glides. The living room is the perfect place to kick back and relax, featuring a tri-fold sofa, which could be replaced with theatre seating, and an entertainment center that features a 32” LED TV. Conveniently, the television is visible from the u-shaped dinette so you can enjoy the news while eating dinner.

Speaking of dinner, your family chef will love using the Imagine kitchen to whip up family meals. You can store food in the double door refrigerator, rinse veggies with the high-rise faucet (pullout sprayer included), and cook food on the stainless steel three-burner range, which comes with an oven. If your family doesn’t have a designated chef, you can take turns cooking or rely solely on the stainless steel microwave to heat up your TV dinners. Either way, the Grand Design Imagine has the tools to keep you well fed. It even includes a pet dish for the family dog. As an added bonus, the Grand Design Imagine also comes with an outside kitchen, allowing you to enjoy Mother Nature while cooking.

Let’s explore the residential bathroom. Built for comfort, the bathroom is not your typical trailer bathroom. It features a 30” by 36” walk-in shower and a skylight above. A mirrored medicine cabinet sits above the sink, allowing you to conveniently store your toiletries. There is ample counterpace for grooming and organizing, and there’s even a linen closet for all your towels. Last but not least, the bathroom is equipped with a porcelain toilet.

The Master Bedroom is located opposite to the bathroom. It features a comfy queen-size bed with a beautiful bedspread and oversized under-bed storage. You can also store your belongings in the overhead cabinets above the bed and on the nightstands. Equipped with TV and cable prep, you can fall asleep to your favorite movie or show. If you’re travelling with a big family, you’ll be happy to know that the Grand Design Imagine 2800BH can sleep 10 people. There’s even a bunkroom that can also be used as bike storage.

Since camping is a year-round adventure, Grand Design Imagine provides you with the Extended Season Camping Package. It features a residential heating system throughout the trailer, along with moisture barrier floor enclosure and high-density roof insulation with an attic vent. To top it off, the heated and enclosed underbelly comes with suspended tanks.

The Grand Design Imagine 2800BH sells for around $37,000. For more information, visit http://www.granddesignrv.com/.
