Concern about shower dome design in 2020 Micro Minnie

I was doing a visit of a 2020 2108FBS micro minnie today, and one of thing that I notice is that the done was single layer and that from the shower you can touch the insulation and wood from the ceiling if you put you hand on the side of it. Even the part clerk was amaze of that design. My question if condensation from the shower, where will the droplet go when sliding down the dome? The higher end Winnebago travel trailer and cheaper brand are fully seal from the inside.

Could reassure me on this?

I think I can reassure that the condensation will indeed run from the dome into the wood of the roof.
My guess is that somebody left off the bottom, inside, portion of the skylight.

I got a call from Winnebago product manager and it seam that all 2019-2020 unit at my dealer have all the same issues. Technically it should only have a liner and not a 2nd dome inside. This look like a poor design.

To clarify my initial statement about the shower.

If you look at the picture where the trim in on the ceiling of the shower, the dome is at least 1.25 inch bigger. This allow you from the roof to see inside and allow you to touch the insulation from the shower,. This seam to be standard design on most 2019-20020 Micro-Minnie, I am still waiting to hear from Winnnebago if they intend to rectify this issues before I purchase and more important how?

We just purchased in March a 2108DS and the shower seems to have the same issue. I’m also interested in what Winnebago has to say about this issue. I talked with the dealer we purchased ours from and he was aware of the design concern and is willing to work with us if it becomes an issue.
Thanks for the heads up!

Any update on the shower dome? I'm going to look at micro minnies this weekend so it would be good to know what can be done.

Smile REPLY from winniebago about my shower concern

Reply from Winnebago product manager:
''Following up from last week. We have a solution which is a new inner shroud. It is large and covers that gap you mention. See the attached photo. It will finish off and look like this.

I’ve asked my Service team to proactively reach out to your dealer and work with them to replace the unit you’re interested it. It is a very easy fix as it requires removing 4 screws, switching the shrouds and replacing the 4 screws.

We’re having the new part made at our supplier so there may be a little lag time as we’re all just starting back up from our COVID-19 shutdowns.''

We are getting it next week so I will need to go back to have it modified. I have talk to several previous owners that were not aware of this issue.

I am very happy with the way Winnebago dealt with the issue.

Good response... just wonder why those units left the factory/quality control in the original condition? That sounds like someone in the Trailerables division is not paying attention properly. They should have never been delivered to dealers like that.

Here’s what is under that dome on ours.
Also I figured they would have overlapped the roof material to the inside...but not so

Thanks for your post! We are picking up our 2108DS next week in MD and will be sure and check for this issue! Did the Winnebago rep mention if this seems to be an isolated problem, like within a certain time frame of manufacturing?

I’m concerned about this too. We’re supposed to pick up our 1708FB next Friday from our dealer and will have to check our shower dome for this issue. It sounds like an easy fix though if Winnebago is willing to send the new upgraded molding to retrofit the older design. I’d rather do it myself then drive 3hrs back to the dealer to have it replaced.

I just send a picture to Winnebago to make sure we are all on the wavelength here? The only way that can be fix is by getting a second dome that will seal water access to inner roof. My dealer is suppose to get the part sometime this week.

From the shower I can touch the plywood and insulation meaning all the condensation and water from the dome will reach with no effort to that part of the ceiling.

All the 2020 at my dealer on the Micro-Minnie 2020 had the same issues.

I would like to know from previous Micro-Minnie owner if you all have the same issues or if it is only related to 2020's?



Best regards,

I spoke with our dealer today and they were able to verify that only the inner shroud needs to be updated. I was told that after I pickup my trailer this Friday they will order the replacement part and have it shipped directly to me so that I can replace the shroud.

That sounds fine, but we caution folks buying a new RV/TT to not take possession on a new RV without everything fixed before you close and take possession. No, "IOUs" etc.

Sad to say after the sale dealers routinely forget that you ever existed.

Hoping this goes well for you on this obvious flub on Winnebago's part.
