    jdf--if no definitive feedback from forum folks, call Tony Lizzi, GDRV District Sales Manager (DSM) for Reflection line on his cell at 574 850 9581........if he does not know he will find out and get back with you or steer you in the right direction (or furrow as it may be in your case ! )

    jdf, back when we were discussing the differences that allowed 16" wheels and tires on the 337 but only 15" on the pre-spacer 303s, one of the differences noted was that the 337 has 10" frame rails and the 303 has 8" frame rails. I don't know about the 27rl and 29rs, but it would be reasonable to expect that frame size is proportional to trailer GVWR.

    Lippert may have upsized the newest 303 frame rails to 10" to avoid using the 2" spacers . . . but my early 2015 303 frame rails are definitely 8" (I just crawled under there to make sure . . . )

    The GD sales rep just happened to be at the RV dealer today and that was what he told me so possibly they did change

    Talked with Micah today AM and this is what he shared:

    1. The two Reflection TTs have 10" frames
    2. Reflection fivers up to 5200 lb. axles use 8" frames
    3. Reflection fivers with 6000 lb. axles (318, 323, 337) use 10" frames
    4. Reflection fivers with 7000 lb. axles (357, 367) use 12” frames (I was not aware that any Reflection Fivers had 7K axles but just add that to the long list of things I don’t know !)

    Micah shared that frame size is determined in conjunction with Lippert, based on several factors including but not limited to trailer weight, number and size of slides, trailer overhang, etc.

    Micah shared that further questions can be directed to Tony Lizzi, [email protected] - cell 574 850 9581 as noted in my post #2 on this thread.

    And we can add to this: the new 150 series has a 6" frame as does the 2500rl Imagine travel trailer - not sure about the rest of the Imagine lineup
