We expected to have a V10 engine but Winnebago has changed offerings for 2016. Have concerns about this smaller engine having to power the same "box" not to mention a tow car.
Does anyone have this new V8 engine in a Minnie 22 or 25? Please comment on the performance. We have to make a decision on this deal Monday or Tuesday. All info very much appreciated!!
The Ford E series web site has specs out for 2017 VIN E350 and E450 chassis and all still use the 6.8 L V-10 engine and there is no option for a V-8 engine model.
The winnebagoind.com web site still states that all 2016 Minnie Winnie models use the 6.8 L V-10 engine and E-450 chassis, this combo of E-450 chassis, 6 speed transmission, and engine is rated at 305 Horsepower.
Unless there is a major re-design of some Minnie Winnies for 2017 to use a different chassis then all will continue to use the E450 chassis and the V-10. This makes sense to me as this is the cheapest chassis available for Winnebago to build on and the Minnie Winnie is the most value priced Winnebago RV line available.
