New To Us! Minnie 2455BHS

Just put in our down payment on a 2019 Winnebago Minnie 2455BHS. This is our first trailer and we are looking forward to it as we both grew up camping and now we want our girls to have the same fun times like we had.

We hired an inspector to check it all over and got the dealership to agree to repair anything that the inspector found within reason. Is there anything in particular I should have the inspector look for?

Nothing racking up a $1200 Amazon cart for stuff to outfit us so when we take delivery we want to get it all ready to roll in spring.

Congratulations! I like the layout of that model, I'm sure your going to love it.

Suggestions for the inspection I guess would be the obvious, emphasis on roof and all caulking up there. Slide seals. Check every single appliance and system in the camper, don't just take anyone's word it works.

If it doesn't have already, get a slide out topper installed on your slide. Want to keep that water and debris off that thing and possible intrusion into camper.

Congrats Coles,
Towing safety stuff would be highest on my list. Since your new trailer is 2 years old, check for any signs of rust or decay on frame and rear bumper. Condition of brakes should be checked and proper operation of breakaway switch. Bearings should have a fresh repack. Tires the most important thing. If the tires are the originals, you should consider replacing them right away. If dealer put new cheap China bombs on it, insist on a quality ST tire.

Thanks everyone. I got the inspection coming up on the 24th so if all goes well should be picking it up next week Friday. Soon as I get it home it’s going in to get ceramic coated then off to storage until April. Once I get it I’ll grab some pictures and post them especially after the coating.

Have any preferences on the slide topper?

Got the inspection report back today. Very minor things my inspector found such as:

Small leak on outdoor sink - cold water line
Screen door didn’t always catch
Toilet didn’t hold water in bowl - thoughts?
Seal for slide out was not in line perfectly - thoughts?
Small area on rail was missing a dab of sealant

Overall the trailer did score in the 90s and dealer is repairing them all prior to me taking delivery tomorrow morning. You guys have any thoughts or concerns about the things I mentioned above...

If the dealer is repairing them all, it seems like you're in a good spot. My only follow-up with the inspector (assuming nothing more was said) would be to ask if he/she looked for water damage related to the leaking outdoor sink, missing sealant, and slide-seal. You'll obviously want to make sure you are satisfied with the repairs. Toilets that don't hold water are pretty common if the seal over the valve has been allowed to dry out.

Brought it home today! Dealer fixed everything and I double checked to make sure they did. Only thing they wouldn’t do was the roof as it was still under warranty and it was within tolerances for how the roof is.
