    Is there a difference

    We have spent months looking at 5th wheels and have finally decided we want the Grand Design Reflections, however we are torn between the 303 and the 337. Both have the floor plan we like but our question is what, if any, is the difference in the living space. Is the only difference in the two the smaller bath and bedroom?

    Re: Is there a difference

    There were a couple of reasons we selected the 337. 1. The front cap closet is huge! When we are on the road for extended periods of time, that makes a big difference. 2. We like the bath in the 337 much better. The 303 has two doors to the bath. That is a waste of space that wasn't needed.

    Re: Is there a difference

    I had the same questions before I bought my Reflection. I went with the 303 because I did not want the bed on a slide and because of the overall length. I had an Everest before with the bed on a slide and just prefer the wardrobe area on the slide. I can tell no difference in the living area and the bathroom is large enough for me. I'm 6'2, 220 pounds and the shower is the best of any RV I have ever owned. The wardrobe in the slide carries everything we need for a long trip. My Everest had the closet in the front and we never used half of it. Obviously, everyone has there own preference. One of the things we like best is the entry to the bath from the bedroom.

    The most important thing to me was keeping the overall length of the RV to the shortest possible in the Reflection line (because of places I like to camp.) I also looked at the 293 but didn't like the placement of the entertainment center.

    LBnM,

    What do you think of the basement storage? Is it sufficient?

    Re: Is there a difference

    Oh, one other difference we liked with the 337 - In the kitchen, there is a separate pull out pantry right next the stove that is not included in the 303. It's a great place for spices and such when cooking.

    Awning is bigger on the 337 , unit stands a couple of inches taller , underbelly storage is bigger , walls have thicker insulation , shower is different layout ( go to photo section on grand design website to see )
    Also has the option for a king bed ( what I ordered )
    It is 4 ft longer than the 303 , has 16 in tires ( 303 has 15 )

    All of these things are why I ordered a 337 . Either way they are both great units and the main living areas are almost the same , just different from the bathroom forward .

    Re: Is there a difference

    We had also shopped for several months and had decided on the Grand Design due to construction features. We had just returned from an RV show in Dallas and really liked the 303 that was on display. My wife then noticed that the 337 had just been introduced, so we delayed our purchase until we could see it in the showroom. Once seeing the 337, we knew we had found our RV. The main reasons were the shower configuration, the longer island and counter space, and the improved kitchen layout with the pantry and slide out kitchen storage.

    Like others have stated, both are awesome units and you can't go wrong with either layout.

    Enjoy!

    Re: Is there a difference

    We picked the 303 for the shorter length and 2000 pounds less weight. We also liked the closet slide since that layout has decent size nightstands. We put 16" wheels and LT tires on ours (swapped from our trade in). We have found there is tons of storage, and still have several empty cabinets. I put spices in a little basket from the dollar store. The pantry is huge, plenty big enough for a 20# bag of dog food and a case of beer on the pantry floor, also big enough to carry a peck hand basket. I put my mop, stick vac, camper wash brush in the front of the basement along with the patio mat, small air compressor and the bottle jack. The main basement holds a large plastic box with hoses and stuff, another full of ham radio stuff, a Coleman grill, two anti gravity recliners, two bag chairs entry mat, and wheel chocks.

    We have been on the road for close to four weeks, and are not feeling cramped or crowded.

    It is for us. I carry lots of stuff and we use about half the space. As I said, length was the key issue with me. I would have gone to another brand to stay at, or under, 33'. My longest trip to date in it has been 10 days and it felt very comfortable. + everything 2hams said. The two Westies love it also.
