MW 31D

We took delivery of the new Minnie Winnie 31D in Oct. We have only camped twice in it on 2 shorter trips but we already love it. We chose it for it's 80" walkaround queen (N-S), huge pantry, opposing smaller slides that create a liveable living space, TV nicely positioned over the dinnette, across from sofa, extra comfortable bedding, exterior entertainment package, airbags, jacks, rear pass through storage, corian counters, glass range cover. We are very satisfied so far.

We bought our 2017 Winnebago Spirit 25b on August 26. Unlike most RV buyers today, we wanted 'simple', with little glitz and few options. We could not be happier with our choice. Having owned a couple of larger Class A rigs over the years, I wanted small and manageable this time around. We don't full time.

What we love about it:

*First of all, the v10 and 6 speed with Tow/Haul. Awesome!
*How easy it is to drive, and how well it handles and rides.
*No slideouts.
*The 4,200 lb. carrying capacity, which we will never come
close to approaching.
*Dual pane windows, one of my must have options.
*The 15k a/c keeps it cool even in 100+ degree weather.
*Black tank flush. Gotta love that.
*Having a sofa and a dinette in such a short Class C.
*Good amount of storage, inside and out.
*The smile on our faces every time we go anywhere.

It has not been returned to the dealer for any reason, since the day of purchase. We have been on several short trips, and also a quick 10 day trip from Arizona to Illinois and back in October. Everything has performed flawlessly. Right at 6,500 miles on the odometer now.

Great features! Congrats on the new RV! Your check list is almost identical to ours! :-)

Sounds really reliable and great CCC! That is more than most gas class A's! Congrats!

I appreciate the posts! My RV is on order with estimated delivery date in February. Great to hear about your deliveries! At least that means they are cranking them out of the factory! :-)

My bad, I'm old and so are my eyes. It looked like the finger, I had to take a triple check.

Haha...ok, now I get the comment. No worries! Wish others would post photos of their Winnebagos! Mine is expected to arrive by mid-February due to "a shortage in the F53 chassis by Ford". :-)

WHAT? You are trading your 26HE?

Is it too old, small, dark? It seemed like you enjoyed your Vista.

I drove mine to Alaska in 2005 and am making it better since then:

Do you notice the 2 added windows on passenger side?

Tricolor, love your paint job and the extra windows!

We do love our 26HE. We've had it now for 4 1/2 years and 48 trips. :-)

When we bought it we were new to RVing and we thought we'd keep it 4 years to see if we really liked RVing and so we could decide what we liked and disliked.

The 26HE has been great for all of our camping trips, from 3-day weekends to 2-week trips all the way to Yellowstone.

What we'd really like is a little more space (sofa) in the living area, a window on the patio side (like you now have :-), and a full length queen with more space on both sides. I'm also looking forward to an upgraded electrical system, and the large GPS unit in the cab.

Would we be happy in the 26HE? Yes! Will we love the new Adventurer 35P? I'm pretty sure we'll love it just as much.

After we retire in a few years, I think it will also be more comfortable on longer trips.

My only concern is the length. The 26HE can fit into any state park, and the size of the 35P will eliminate a few state parks from the list, like Big Basin and Calaveras. Yosemite is still available, but only 10 sites!

With all that in mind, we'll miss our Big White Box, but look forward to new adventures in the 35P. To us, it just confirms how much we love RVing!

By the way, did you also paint the roof? Somehow looks a lot sleeker!

Not the whole roof... just what shows!

Back to the original subject, I hope you enjoy your new MH at least as much as your 26HE.
I am sure you will custom fit the rig and contribute to a new tread
