New MW 22M Owner

We are new Minnie Winnie 22M owners and just joined the group. We've been RV's for around 15 yrs in a pop-up, a 5'er and for last 7 years a 32' Gulfstream class C. We are also boaters and have a 19' bay boat that we tow on majority of our camping trips. So, we don't use a toad and depend on MH to get around in. With the kids grown and out on their own, we thought downsizing to something in the 24' range would make maneuvering around easier. The little I've driven the 22M since delivery on Saturday, it is much more nimble!

We are planning on purchasing a new MW 22M. Can you tell me what mileage you have been getting? Do you have any recommendations for options? Are there any things you especially like or dislike about it? Have you had any issues with it?

Thank You,
Patrick & Carol

Iíve not checked mileage but it seems to be slightly better than our previous 32ft class C which was around 7 to 9 mpg depending on speed, headwind, etc.

We bought unit from dealer inventory and it has the convenience package which includes most every option needed. We donít have the cameras on mirrors which might be nice. If I had choice, I would delete oven but add convection microwave for more storage space.

So far, we love it. Kids are grown so just wife and I now. So, size isnít issues. Iíve read some folks say they would not want the bed slide but we donít find it an issue.

Ive posted more info from trips and mods on the Minnie Winnie Owners Facebook group.

I did same thing so once I figured out positions, I drew diagram on underside of the small cover that goes over them. Hopefully, I've posted link to a picture of it and, even more hopefully, my diagram makes sense.

Congrats on your new (fantastic) 22M!!

For a small RV, I assume you are aware of it's great water tank capacities and generous propane tank capacity? It sounds like it's well optioned, too.

The 22M is a great little Class C to get around in ...and with all the comforts of home when you get there. Is your's on the Ford E350 or Ford E450 chassis? As you know, you can get that chassis serviced, repaired, and refueld just about anywhere.

Enjoy!

(Kindof in the same category as what you have - we have a Winnebago Itasca 24V Class C on a Ford E450 chassis, and it has been an incredible RV for us.)
