Default FunFinder 189FBR to Grand Design Imagine Xls 18RBE

Hi all!

I have a wonderful 2008 189FBR, which I have totally remodeled to suit us. We love it and are now full time in it... But hubs is very tall and can't stand up under the a/c, bath is small and I'm getting to old to climb in and out of the bed. Haven't found another floorplan that we like... Until now! 2019 Grand Design Imagine Xls 18RBE Has anyone seen these or have experience with the Grand Design brand? Right now it's just daydreaming, but maybe in a year or so we will get one if the reviews are good. Would love to hear of others experiences. I think this is the first small trailer model. they've made. 22.5' big bath, no slides, a bumper, walk around bed, sounds good! Going to see one tomorrow. Share your thoughts?

Liz

I have no experience with Grand Design, but it's probably no better or worse than most other brands out there. Seems nice enough, although my preference would be to have a slide.

Well, it has R40 insulation in the ceiling and R30 in the floor, although the walls are only are 7 LOL seems like that would be good for full timing. It is very well built and very little wasted space at all. we don't want to slide so we were surprised to find one that was exactly the right floor plan

Actually, we have decided on the Imagine XLS 19rle because it has a U-shaped dinette with Windows all around it at the back of the trailer. That was the one thing I really wished I had in my Fun Finder.

R40’ in the ceiling and R30 in the floor is an exageration. The ceiling would need to be 20 inches thick. That alone raises a red flag of concern, if they are lying about the product- puts everything they do in question.

R4 and R3 would be more like it IMO.
