We purchased this unit brand new. We were looking at other models but we thought Winnebago had a much better quality so we paid almost $5,000 more thinking that we were going to get a better unit. A soft spot in the floor developed. So I researched it and found that that model between 2015 in 2019 had that issue. We brought our unit to a Winnebago dealer. They looked at the issue and said it was not from water leaking in. When we asked Winnebago what they could do for it they told us nothing. It is clearly a defect in the way it was built. They have fixed others on a good faith repair who were original owners. They said the warranty had lapsed. Now we're stuck with a $4,000 repair bill. When I called Winnebago to talk about it they brushed me off. They were going to always get back to me after each phone call and never did. Marquardt RV in Oregon Wisconsin lookrf the unit over and did their best to get Winnebago to fix the issue. Markquart RV was excellent to work with. This will be the last Winnebago we ever buy.

Despite seeing a few negative reviews, I decided to buy a Winnibago Micro Minnie. It had several things I wanted: dual axles, queen size bed and a large slideout. My mistake! In the first 10 months of ownership I've had to do, or have done, 12 repairs. These include five water leaks (they had failed to glue the pvc drain pipe sections together), replacement of a defective water pump, repair of the furnace, repeated repair of loose or broken stovetop fittings, drawer slide failure, entryway handrail failure because of stripped screws, two factory recalls and, most recently, failure of the slideout system with significant damage to the wall of the RV where screws holding the slideout frame were pulled out. This last failure happened in the middle of a cross country trip, leaving us to live with the narrow aisle between the closed slideout and the fixed interior cabinetry. As for warranty service; Winnebago only gives you the name of a local dealer and leaves it for you to make an appointment (usually in a few weeks) to get the repair done. Not terribly useful if you are on the road! Winnebago never again.

I've been using this RV for long stays dry camping and I had to take out the bed and sofa to make enough storage and walking space comfortable. It's a shame that I had to install an inverter (because the manufacturer doesn't supply one) to use the 110 outlets while boondocking. I really like the kitchen and shower set up. Nice 3 burner stove and oven with very large refrigerator/freezer that all ran on propane were very helpful when dry camping. The Zamp dual solar panel was very helpful after I installed 2 AGM batteries. The dual propane tanks provided were very helpful since there's no monitor for gauging when you're running low, the second tank acts as a backup. The outdoor shower and large water tank were also really useful for dry camping. I have a gray water dumping setup so I was able to water the plants and trees around me with the gray water while dry camping and lessen the load on the holding tanks. When running on electric hookup, the A/C worked perfect.

Do not! Do not! Do not buy a Winnebago RV. The craftsmanship and reliability are terrible! We bought a 2019 Minnie; brand spanking new. On one of our first journeys, in Nevada in early spring when the temperature was below freezing, out heater failed! Splendid work guys! Our local RV dealer indicated that the part that failed on our heater, is well know for failing, yet Winnebago continues to send this travel trailer out the door! Wow! Then our water pump failed. No city water? Our pump just sputters and fails to produce a stream of water! Wow! More nice work Winnebago! So... you either stay hooked up to the city water supply, or you have no water! Thanks for the freedom, Winnebago! And... one of the "pins" that holds the bedroom curtain in place failed. So your window curtain no longer stays in the lower position. The "pin" that held the curtain in place against the wall was barely implanted in the wall, they slapped a little glue on it, and called it good. It was NOT good. Winnebago should be embarrassed to turn a product like this loose on the public. Oh.. and I have not yet mentioned the silly double battery holder on the front of the trailer. By the time you have all the cables in place, and we had to add an inverter, the battery box lids do not fit in place over the batteries! You can leave your batteries and cables exposed to the elements, or invent your own solution. Winnebago ought to be ashamed of themselves. Do they think the ENTIRE public is stupid. (Psssst: They're not...). So, while Winnebagos are cheaper than some travel trailers, you are wasting your money if you invest your hard earned cash on a Winnie. Doug LeClair

After two years of searching and research, we settled on the Winnebago Micro Minnie 2106FBS due to our personal requirements of outside dimensions, bathroom and island bed. We were able to purchase a 2019 from the original owner who had bought the trailer in April of 2020 and was selling it after just a few months due to a family tragedy. Interestingly, Winnebago does not transfer its warranty beyond the original owner. It didn't matter to us at the time because of we had been led to believe Winnebago was a superior quality product. We had owned this Micro Minnie for nine months when, returning home from our first two week trip, we heard a noise from under the trailer. When we pulled over at a rest area, I was able to inspect the underside of the trailer and spotted an angle iron cross bar(which should have been supporting the fresh water tank)hanging down just in front of the tires. Upon further inspection it looked to me as if, during installation, someone had drilled two holes and broke a bolt off in one of them, drilled two more holes next to the previous ones, again broke a bolt off in one of those holes, then settled on just using one bolt to hold that side of the support up *which had fallen out*. I reported it to Winnebago Customer Service and sent photos of the hanging support and underlying problem. They refused any responsibility and stated it was not a structural issue. No additional information was requested. Neither did they schedule or request an inspection. After we returned home, what I found under the trailer was that in addition to the fallen bar, other parts including the stairs and stabilizers were also attached with inexpensive rusting zinc coated fasteners, mostly self-tapping bolts for ease of installation. This shortsighted choice could have caused havoc to us and anyone behind us had the fresh water tank (lacking its support) been full and fallen out on the highway. I went to the local fastener store and bought quality replacement bolts made of 18/8 stainless steel for just $6.00 TOTAL. I would have thought Winnebago would have put its campers together with better quality bolts in the first place. Upon closer inspection, I found plastic bubble wrap was used on the bottom of the propane tanks, I assume to protect the holding tray from damage. It didn't work. The tray was wear damaged and rusted. There have been other materials and workmanship issues on the interior such as curtain stitching unraveling, grommet cover distorted and hanging, wood picture paper peeling off cabinetry edges, couch and mattress going flat... I can put up with the lack of quality on interior issues but I never expected to see what I found underneath the camper where the highest quality should always be expected. Repairing the underside isn't something you would expect to have to do after less than a year and a half of ownership.

This travel trailer is terrific for the money. Great attention to detail - quality built in at every turn. Two axles allow over 3,000 lbs of cargo. Seven foot wide allows driving through narrow construction zones a breeze. Huge shower, queen size bed, futon couch (in slide), ample interior LED lights, microwave, big fridge, charging stations, quality exterior surfaces, large water and waste tanks, oversize air conditioner, power tongue lift, double SS sink, great awning, good audio/TV set up, lots of storage. It seems impossible the interior is as large as it is looking at it from the outside. Two people very comfortable, two with one child OK...no more. Perfect for retired couple. This a great trailer...now for some comments for improvement. Wheel wells are thin galvanized or aluminum sheet metal, some corrosion started already when new. I cleaned them and sprayed with truck bead coating. Bumper ends fall off easy - drilled small hole and used a pin to hold them on permanently. Door closure needs a little grease. Mattress was very thin (must be replaced), bought aftermarket happy camper mattress for $350 it is terrific. Bought dual AGM batteries for extended boondocking...the trailer is designed to hold two batteries so no problem. Bathroom sink is a bit tight - mirror too high. I’ve owned cheap, poor quality travel trailers...this is not in that category. We wanted an Airstream or Oliver for the quality. They cost FOUR times what this trailer cost. They are better, but not by that much. Save your money, do some touch ups yourself and enjoy.

We pull it with our SUV. In past year we have camped in local state parks as “shake out” experiences and then headed out further. We did a Western swing last year for five weeks. This year we have spent a week in Florida. Easy pull, great quality. We love the mountains in our area and have really enjoyed the comfort and convenience of being able to travel in our “bubble” carrying our food and staying in safety of our home on the road. It is our first adventure in the RV world. Ours is immaculate and easy to travel with. Fall will start some longer trips. We are in our late 70’s and enjoy seeing the nation,

Not good... 1. Don’t go down a dirt road. There is a hole in the floor under the sink. Where dust comes in and coats everything in your drawers and under the sink. 2. Sewer black water level is always wrong. 3. Trim along the front edge is cheap and always falls out of the track. We ended up just cutting it off. Black water and gray water closures on the outside always leak. Can’t empty sewer without sewer pouring out. They tried to fix it. But it still doesn’t work right. 4. None of the inside wood is sealed. So it gets dirty. And hard to clean. Especially by the stove. 5.The designer could have added 6 more inches to make the bed a full queen size instead of a kids double bed. 6. The TV didn’t last a year. Positive ... 1. Good Antenna 2. I like the light under the awning 3. The table can be brought outside
