    Hello from Texas

    Sheila and I are retired teachers who live in Amarillo, Texas. During the last 20 years that we have been married we have enjoyed all kinds of travel in the US, Canada and Europe. A little over a year ago we bought a 31 foot light fifth wheel to pull behind our F150. Sheila never liked it much--no dining table, small bath and bedroom. We sold it yesterday to a couple from Kansas City.

    We were looking at RV's at a local dealer a month ago when the salesman showed us 3 Solitudes. We both loved the 369, but we thought if was too large for us. Anyway, a few weeks after that the F150 was traded in on a F250 Lariat, diesel, 4X4, short bed. Then all the goodies -- B&W Patriot hitch (which was moved from the 150), sprayed in bed liner, tint for front windows, running boards, mud flaps. Remaining item is to install a 45 gallon aux. fuel tank.

    A week and a half ago we drove to Oklahoma City to look at a Reflection 303. By then we had seen the announcement of the 337, but no dealers had yet received one. We liked the 303 and decided that would work for us, but thought we would prefer the 337. The salesman called us a couple of days after we returned with a special "RV show price" for both the 303 and the 337. Considering the modest difference between the 2, we ordered the 337. Arrival sometime in November. They said it would get priority on the build schedule before routine orders for dealers.

    We like--king bed, large closet (much like that in the Solitude), larger bathroom, small additional pantry in kitchen, larger entertainment center with a 39 inch TV. We get all of this from the floorplan. No idea what windows in bedroom slide. Solitude started with 2, then went to 1 although the 2nd is still framed during construction and can be added by the dealer (all this I have learned from this forum).

    In any event, we eagerly await our new 337 and our future journeys in it.

    Welcome Robert and Sheila,

    This is a good forum to learn about the Grand Design rv's. We are also retired educators who recently bought a Grand Design 5th wheel - we did choose the 369RL Solitude but they had not released the floor plan on the Reflection 337 or we might have considered it.

    These are wonderful units and I know you will be anxious for your new rv to get here - enjoy it when it comes.
