Grand Design Recreation Vehicles Co. was honored with a 2018 Top Debut award by RVBusiness as well as a Best of Show by RV Pro for its new introductory level Transcend travel trailer that debuted at the recent RVIA National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky. The new travel trailer is one of only 25 RVs selected annually by RVB for Top Debut honors.
“Grand Design has always been focused on high quality, high content, and high value in every segment of the industry that we have entered, and our new Transcend is no exception,” stated Don Clark, president/CEO of Middlebury, Ind.-based Grand Design RV. “In a segment of the market that has gone relatively unchanged for many years, the Transcend bucks the market trends and delivers on Grand Design’s mantra of ‘We strive for nothing less than customers for life.’ We are honored to have received the Top Debut Award, and even more excited to welcome a whole new segment of RVers into the Grand Design family.”
Micah Staley, General Manager for the Reflection, Imagine and Transcend product lines added, “The introductory level Transcend will carve its own path in the industry, creating opportunity for both retail customers and our dealers by providing more value, better floorplans and more features for the end user.”
Transcend features include a power tongue jack, power awning and aluminum entry steps. On the inside, the Transcend features upgrades like leather sofas and cushions, upgraded bunk mats, seamless thermal-formed countertops and deep-seated stainless steel kitchen sink. An upgraded insulation package and standard 15,000 Btu air conditioner help make Transcend an extended stay trailer. The first available floorplan will be a 32-foot bunkhouse that sleeps 10 and weighs in around 6,400 pounds. It will sell in the $20,000 to $30,000 price range.
