Middlebury, Indiana-based towable manufacturer Grand Design RV has taken direct aim at the massive half-ton towable market with the debut of its Reflection 150-Series line of fifth-wheels.
With floor plans ranging from 26 to 34 feet, dry weights starting under 7,000 pounds, and 90-degree turning radius capabilities, the 150-Series, with a base MSRP of $39,327, is well within the capacities of many of today’s half-ton and short bed trucks, according to a Grand Design news release.
“The Reflection 150 Series delivers maximum living without maxing out your truck. The towability, spacious interior, and luxury features of the Reflection 150 Series are redefining what it means to be half-ton towable.”
The initial 230 RL floor plan features a spacious 60-inch by 80-inch queen size bed in the master bedroom up front with a large panoramic window on the camp side, and a rear living area with a 38-inch deep slide, and 72-inch theater seating.
Other notable features include an 8 cubic foot refrigerator with access when the slides are closed, four-season insulation, 80-inch U-shaped dinette, all-in-one utility center, all-in-one docking station, unrestricted pass-through storage, 17-foot awning, laminated aluminum framing, and gel-coated fiberglass exterior.

“The 90-degree turning radius capabilities without the need for a slider hitch will be the difference maker on this product.”
