Join us as we explore the unique aspects of the Reflection 311BHS and discover why this RV stands out against its competition in the RV industry.

Spacious Living Room and Impressive Kitchen

The opposing slides in the living room and kitchen of the Reflection 311BHS, create a very spacious and open floor plan. This design allows for comfortable movement and ample seating area.

The living room features a comfortable theater seat directly across from the entertainment center, which boasts a Roku Smart TV. The TV is on a swivel allowing you to watch your favorite TV shows or movies from both the couch and the dinette. Above the couch Grand Design installed overhead cabinets for additional storage.

The kitchen in the Reflection 311BHS sets itself apart from other comparable models. It offers:

  • Generous storage and preparation space, making it highly functional and suitable for RVers who prioritize cooking and mealtime.
  • Solid surface countertops with rounded edges for enhanced quality and improved aesthetics.
  • An island, which adds functionality, convenience, and extra counter space for meal preparation and a central gathering point for family and friends.
  • Ample cabinet space with magnet holdbacks, which are an improvement upon the clips typically used for cabinets.
  • And upgraded appliances including the stove top, oven, and large 16 cubic foot, 12 volt refrigerator.
Outdoor Kitchen in the Reflection 311BHS

The outdoor kitchen in the Reflection 311BHS goes above and beyond what you typically find in an RV. It includes a large refrigerator, griddle, sink, cabinets, and a large drawer. The counter and drawer are made from galvanized rolled steel, making them durable and easy to clean.

Reimagined Shower Skylight and Other Bathroom Features

Skylight in the Reflection 311BHS

One of the standout features of the Grand Design Reflection 311BHS is its reimagined skylight in the shower. Instead of a traditional large hole cut into the ceiling with a piece of plastic, Grand Design has designed a recessed ceiling tray with a built-in light.

This innovation offers extra headroom and improved visibility during showers, even at night-time. Such attention to detail demonstrates the brand’s commitment to functional and thoughtful design. Grand Design sets itself apart by incorporating unique features that are not commonly found in other RVs.

The bathroom includes plenty of storage space from the two medicine cabinets, cabinet under the sink, and a dedicated linen closet and drawer in the wardrobe slide. One thing to consider is the medicine cabinet above the toilet can be a bit of a head banger for taller people.

Comfortable Bedroom Retreat

Bedroom in the Reflection 311BHS

In the bedroom of the Reflection 311BHS, you’ll find a comfortable and peaceful retreat for a good night’s sleep after a day of outdoor adventures.

The room features a true queen-size bed. Soft lighting fixtures and large windows create a warm and inviting ambiance, while blackout shades provide privacy and block out unwanted light.

The bedroom also includes bedside nightstands and overhead cabinets to store some of your personal belongings. There is a good amount of other storage in the bedroom including space under the bed, drawers, and a wardrobe. Though it is important to note that there is only a small amount of hanging space available, more can be added by removing the shelves in the bathroom linen closet.

With its cozy atmosphere and thoughtful design, the bedroom in the Reflection 311BHS offers a comfortable space for resting at night.

Well Designed Rear Bunkroom with a Half Bath

Bunk over the Outdoor Kitchen

The Grand Design Reflection 311BHS floor plan features a spacious bunkroom and half bath in the back. The bunk room includes:

  • A spacious bunk bed above the outdoor kitchen, including storage shelves beneath that double as the ladder.
  • Fold-down bunk bed above the couch
  • And a trifold sleeper sofa,

This provides ample sleeping arrangements for three to four people in the rear bunkroom. It also creates a space for kids to play and hangout during inclement weather.

Trifold Sofa and Flip-Down Bunk

The half bath provides a functional space for children to use the restroom without needing to walk through the entire RV. While the half bath is quite small, it will likely be used mostly by smaller children.

The addition of a hook to prevent the half bathroom door from opening too far when the slide is closed is a smart safety measure.


The Grand Design Reflection 311BHS is a feature-rich fifth wheel that excels in providing a comfortable and convenient camping experience. From its innovative shower skylight design to its thoughtfully planned bunk room and half bath, this RV offers a blend of functionality, style, and safety.

Grand Design’s commitment to reimagining traditional RV features and incorporating unique details sets the Reflection 311BHS apart from its competitors. If you have a large family that loves to go camping, then the Reflection 311BHS is a great fifth wheel to consider for your next RV.
