Hello all, we just picked up our 2106FBS 2018 from lazy days in tampa and towed it back to Pensacola yesterday. 2015 Nissan Frontier V-6 with tow package. We down sized from a 40 ft Cedar creek 5th wheel and a Ford F-350 diesel. We are ordering weight dis hitch today. Towing back from Tampa sweet spot was about 64 mph averaged 12.7 mpg.

You drove all the way to Tampa to get the trailer? When we bought our 2106DS back in 2015, the Lazydays dealer in Tampa was not willing to quote me a price unless we were face to face. They must have realized they were missing out on a lot of business. Congrats on the trailer. If its as trouble free as ours, you will be very happy.

re lazy days

I guess it depends on the sales person that you are working with. We spent several weeks doing the research after having decided on the make and model.The price advertised had little to do with the price out the door. We did 95% of the deal on line then went down to do a visual then sign papers. Since we had full timed in an RV ministry for 10 years we knew what we wanted. Think we will be very happy with the micro minnie!!

Oil viscosity change for towing

Hi everyone,
My tow vehicle has a 7250 GVWR and we are going to be towing a 2108DS which will be about 4500 lbs loaded.
The question is whether I should keep the recommended 5w 20 oil or change it to 5w 30 for summertime towing?
Thanks for your help.

I would follow your owners manual recommendations. Because of regular towing I follow the severe operating recommendation which is to change the oil every 5K-7.5K miles as opposed to the normal schedule of following the sensor for roughly 7.5K to 10K miles. To make it easy I just use 5K. The same goes for any other checks or maintenance where I use the accelerated severe schedule.

Just joined here, just learned of the Micro Minnie yesterday after seeing one on the road. Our main reason for wanting it is the low profile, are they really only 9'8" tall with AC? We have a 10 foot garage door which seriously limits our options and were looking at Airstream but not sure about spending that much. Also I think the Airstreams are even more limited as far as storage. Our present tow vehicle is serious overkill (F-350) but it is a great truck and we will use it at least to start out and maybe downsize later. Does anyone know how much height the 15K AC unit would add? Or is there a second hatch for a second AC? (I am an electrician so a 50 amp conversion is no problem) We live in the desert and need serious cooling.

The model we are interested in is the 2106FBS and can't wait till the dealership opens tomorrow as we haven't been inside one yet.

Thanks and really looking forward to some discussion on the micro.

We like our 2106FBS a lot. I think the height might be over 9'8" with the A/C. I didn't pull out a ladder but the height from the ground to the edge of the roof on ours is 8'4". The top of the curve adds another 4" for a total of 8'8". Just looking at the the A/C unit and its mounting I would say it adds at least another 18" to the height. If I get a chance this week I will pull out a ladder to see how much it adds but I think it will be very close to 10' if not a few inches over.

As to the A/C our came with the 13.5K. We haven't had it out in the middle of summer yet (we live in NC) but we did have it down to Florida for some mid-80's temperatures and it was able to make the trailer colder than we wanted. Based on this I suspect the 15K unit should be able to handle just about anything you can throw at it. Of course you live in that "dry heat" so it might not perform as well because of the lack of humidity (from someone who thinks 100+ degrees is too hot regardless of the humidity level).

Thanks old_engineer, we actually went to look at one today, didn't realize the dealership was open Sundays. The height is not a problem but I forgot my ruler and couldn't measure the overall length with tongue and bumper/spare tire. I paced it off and it looks awful close to fitting in the garage which is a hair over 26 feet long. I emailed Winnebago with a request for more info.

At the dealership they only had the 2106DS which has the Murphy bed & dinette, more floor space when folded up and a couch pulls down in it's place but at the cost of 6" less mattress width, and I wonder about the comfort of the Murphy bed mattress?

What is your tow vehicle and hitch setup?

We have a 2106DS and live in Florida where we camp year round. I can't imagine needing a second A/C. If we crank it, our 15K unit will turn the trailer into a meat locker in the middle of summer. We have the old style fold up bed and not the new murphy bed. The mattress on ours is very good but from what I have heard, the mattress on the new murphy bed is one of the first things that gets replaced. We tow with a Tundra and an equalizer WDH. Sorry, never measured the height.

I use a 2015 F-150 2.7L Ecoboost for the TV. For a hitch I use an Equalizer. It handles well and has no problems with the 5% and 6% grades in the mountains we travel. We are nowhere near the max GVW of the trailer but I think we are at the practical limit to be able to keep our current performance and minimize excess wear and tear. If I were to go much over a loaded weight of 5K lbs I would trade in for a 3.5L although the math for my truck says 6900 lbs is the maximum.

I went and looked at the 2108DS again, although it is 6" longer than the 2106 it doesn't really show up anywhere as roomier inside on the floor plan drawings, I think the extra 6" got taken up by the Murphy bed/couch combo. I noticed that the slide out on the 2106 is noticeably smaller than the 2108 with it's dinette. One thing we haven't seen is the folding table, how exactly does that work and is it comfortable to sit at for meals? Is there ample passage space thru the galley with the table in place? Our dealer does not have a 2106 in stock.

Thanks, Brian

We ditched the table that came with our 2106 and replaced it with a table that is about half the length of the original. We can then position the table between the front couch and the slide out couch for eating, playing cards, etc. It consumes a lot less space so it is convenient without being intrusive. We were really hesitant about the couch instead of the dinette when we bought but now that we have had it for a while I think we made the right decision for our needs. I do wish the jackknife couch was a little nicer but so it goes. One thing I like about the couch instead of the dinette is that the slide out is very shallow. I think this leads to fewer slide out problems since it does not have to support as much weight hanging out in space. Also the surface area on top is smaller and less of a water and debris collector. Of course YMMV

I noticed that the slide was smaller too. The couch does not seem to be very comfortable, I wonder if two recliners could fit there?
