Adventurer Driver side Door

Well looks like the driver side door on the 2016 Adventurer is gone. I like the door sometimes but don't like getting wet when I forget and open the door when it is raining.

edgray, There was a picture posted yesterday on Facebook from Winnebago of the new Adventurer at Dealer Days and I could tell looking through the windshield the door was gone. Now the new floor-plans are posted on the Winnebago website.

A cost cutting measure on the part of Winnebago?

I don't use mine that often since it requires some awkward gymnastics but glad I have it. I just wish the darn thing wouldn't squeak so much on rough roads.

Hey Rochy68D .. I had that darn squeak on mine as well. A little vaseline on the striker post solved the problem. Might work for you as well.

Thanks, it's worth a try. Nothing else has worked.

The "awkward gymnastics" came close to getting me killed! I let go of the door frame as I was getting out at our campsite and missed the stirrup step at the aft edge of the wheel well with my right foot. As I started to fall backwards, I managed to get the hand-hold back and pull myself back up. We were on a concrete pad at the campground.

Three months later, I needed surgery for an extruded lumbar disk. I guess it was less painful than a fractured skull. I never used the door again except for cleaning the floor in front of the driver's seat while standing on the ground.

It worked. I owe you a beverage of your choice! Or two.
