Grand Design Recreational Vehicles, manufacturer of travel trailers, fifth-wheels and toy haulers, has added the Transcend, the company’s first non-laminated RV, to its lineup for 2018. Grand Design is expanding its offerings to include the non-laminated (aka “stick-and-tin”) travel trailer to appeal to a larger group of potential buyers. Production on the Transcend starts this spring with one floorplan available.
The 32-foot Transcend 27BHS bunkhouse is designed to sleep up to 10 people. Offered inside are upgrades such as seamless thermal-formed countertops, a deep stainless-steel sink in the L-shaped kitchen, a 6-cubic-foot refrigerator, overhead cabinets with glass doors, and Ultraleather dinette seating, sofa and cushions.
Creature comforts include a 15,000-Btu air conditioner, an upgraded insulation package, a 32-inch HDTV across from the trifold sofa bed and lots of windows on the street side. Below the galley’s TV are large cabinets.
Up front, the bedroom, with a residential-size walk-around queen bed and mirrored wardrobes, is separated from the galley by a sliding door. The galley and kitchen are at the center of the trailer, and the bathroom, with a 36-inch-wide shower, is at the back. Outside features include a power A-frame jack, electric awning and aluminum entry steps.
Grand Design broke ground on two new production facilities last year, one dedicated to growing the Transcend line. The Transcend 27BHS will weigh around 6,400 pounds and sell in the $20,000 to $30,000 price range.
