Micro Minnie 2108DS

Hey folks... I am a newcomer to this forum and hoping to get answers to a couple quick questions I have on the 2108DS. I tried the search function but didn't find the required intel.

We are narrowing down our short list of smaller travel trailers and the 2108DS checks off a lot of our boxes. The smaller kitchen with limited storage and small fresh water tank are the only drawbacks I can see so far. Won't know if the 7' width will seem tight until we go see the layout in person at an upcoming show.

And now the questions lol ... after watching a number of videos I could not determine if the dinette has accessible storage underneath. Anyone know?

Also is backup camera prep an option?

Thanks in advance!

So, according to the dealer... yes to storage in the dinette and no to factory rear camera prep. Thanks anyway.

Welcome to the group. I only joined a short time ago when I bought my 2108DS. Only got to try it out once because the cold weather was closing in on us. But, it seemed to have plenty of space for the two of us, the slide out adds a lot of room. I like the narrower 7' width for towing with my Chevy Colorado. I mounted a backup camera using some ingenuity and the spare tire mount. I have also heard of someone else mounting the camera up high and getting power from the clearance lights. I use a camera that links to my Garmin GPS.

By the way, there is a lot of storage under the dinette seats!

For a rearview camera, it is simple to replace the center clearance light with a wireless camera. I replaced ours with a Furrion. Took less than an hour to install. The 7' wide trailer is a mixed bag. Its tight around the bed but much nicer to tow. I am able to use the stock mirrors on my Tundra just fine with my 2106DS.

Thanks for the heads-up on the camera. Looks like the way to go.

The storage under the dinette is large, but not easy to access. We added a 12x24 drawer to each side that pulls out toward the galley. Helps a lot.

Purchasing 2108DS

Hi All:
I'm in the process of purchasing a 2108DS. I'm hoping to increase the battery capacity by running with two 6 volt batteries. The battery tray looks small. Will it accommodate two six volt golf cart batteries? If, not what would you recommend?

Thanks for the help.

Batteries

We had the dealer add an additional 12v battery as part of the deal. Haven't done much off grid to fully test it yet.

I've since moved the camera to a position just under the center clearance light and wired it to the light. The camera is a Garmin, is wireless, and works with my Garmin GPS. I made a small plastic plate to mount the camera and then used VHB tape to mount the plate in place.

I ordered two cupboard doors to fit the ends of the dining room benches. It provides much easier access to the storage under the seats.

Yes, two 6 volt batteries with protective cases will fit on the battery tray, So glad a friend of mine convinced me to go with the two 6 volt batteries instead of the 12v battery.

I’m new to this too, how exactly did you wire it to the light? I’m wanting to add a camera but not drill a hole into the trailer and search for a power source? Any advice will help!
