How Much Does a 2024 Serenova 160LG Travel Trailer Cost? 

Table of Contents

One of the biggest headaches people have when choosing a smaller travel trailer is that sometimes quality gets sacrificed as you scale down. 

Well, Grand Design’s new Serenova 160LG blends compact with glam. It’s loaded with quality features as well as a surprising amount of storage for its 20’ length.

Bish’s RV understands that compact campers aren’t for everyone. We strive to match the right RV with the needs of the person. So, if you’re looking for something larger than 20’ we have plenty of other reviews for you. If you are interested in learning more about a compact glamper, then stick around!

Living Area

Being 6’ 2” when I hear the words “compact RV” I instantly picture myself having to hunch over inside of the RV. Thankfully that’s not the case with this 8’ 10” tall Serenova. 

The ventless floors make cleaning easy. 

The ducted heating system warms the RV very efficiently.

The Euro door comes with a built-in screen to keep the critters out. 

Plus, the integrated trash can at the bottom of the door keeps your space neat without a fuss.

The dinette has a telescopic leg that locks in for dining or folds away to make an extra bed. 

Tucked in the corner you’ll find an easy-to-watch TV on a convenient, swinging mount.

The expansive windows let in plenty of light. Check out that massive rear window! 


The functional kitchen of the Serenova 160LG comes with a convection microwave and a spacious Furrion 12-volt compressor fridge. 

There isn’t a pantry, but the cabinetry maximizes storage. This camper proves that “pretty” design can be smart, too. Check out that added storage space above the fridge!

The fold-down sink and stove give you the countertop real estate when you need it most. 


The skylight in the Serenova 160LG’s shower makes it comfortable for taller individuals. You’ll just need to make sure you don’t lean too hard left or right otherwise you might get an unwanted bonk on the head. 

For reference, Josh the RV Nerd is just over 6’.   

The on-demand water heater will help that shower stay warm!

The central medicine cabinet has shelves inside of it as well as on either side. 

The folding sink tucks away to maximize space. This feature gives you more room in the bathroom, but it might be annoying to have to fold it every time you need to use the toilet beneath it – be aware.

See Josh demonstrate sitting upon this throne below.

The bedroom area has a true queen bed with a side-crawl configuration, which might be a quirky feature but also leaves room for additional storage underneath. 

The airflow at the back of the RV is awesome thanks to that large rectangular window that pops open. 

In the corners of this area you’ll find storage space between the cabinet sets as well as outlets to keep your devices powered.

Storage is generous, with double dressers below the bed and a versatile hanging wardrobe closet that doubles as extra kitchen storage.

Road Mode

On the road, the Serenova 160LG has great towing dynamics. The narrow body and wide axle balance provide stability, while the torsion axle and suspension ensure a smooth ride. 

The lightweight all-aluminum chassis means easier towing and longevity.


The exterior of the Serenova 160LG is thoughtfully equipped for the great outdoors. It boasts an anti-slam Euro door with a screen, a power step for easy entry, and an awning for instant shade. 

Reliable Goodyear Endurance radials help you stay safe on the move.

The heated underbelly keeps the RV’s systems working in colder weather.

There’s an outdoor mini-fridge added as well here. 

What Are Potential Problems With the Serenova?

The Serenova 160LG’s sideways bed might limit who can get in and out of it. 

If you find that your joints just aren’t what they used to be and crawling across a queen bed sounds miserable, you’re going to want to pass on this RV. Also, keep in mind if a couple is sleeping here and one wants out of bed and the other doesn’t, there will be some brief “squishing” or awkward scooting around each other.

The 260LG is also heavier than similar RVs. Grand Design doesn’t skimp on quality, but those features can add extra weight. If weight is a concern, you may want to consider some of the lighter options below.

Good or Bad Fit?

The 2024 Serenova 160LG Travel Trailer from Grand Design RV is a great fit for solo journeys and couples, but it might be a little tight for small families. 

Given the compact size of the RV, it packs a lot of great features into it.
