The way to answer this is to look at the official Winniebago brochure for your line of travel trailer. If you have an inverter it will be listed there.
I don't know what year your Minnie 2201MB is, so I can't look that up for you. But I did go over the 2020 brochure for the entire family of Minnie travel trailers and 5th Wheels and none of them came standard with an inverter nor was an inverter offered as a factory option on any of the models.
Until very recently inverters could only be found on motorhomes Class A, B and C. That is quickly changing. But this feature has not become a standard item on most travel trailers... yet. I'm confident this will change very quickly.
More than any other kind of RV, travel trailers are considered an "entry point" into the RV world and a low price is one of the key factors involved in sales success. So, manufacturers are pretty cautious about adding new features that could increase the price and harm overall sales.
PS. I just checked the brochure for 2022 Minnie towables and none of them included an inverter nor did they offer one on an option list. However, unlike the solar prep on 2020 Minnie models many of the 2022 Minnie models included a factory installed solar panel. So, things change to make towables more capable - but not everything all at once, it seems.
