Soon to be a new "to us" 2018 2106DS Owner

Hello Everyone!
I will be trading my Jayco Hybrid in for a 2018 2106DS this comming thursday.
We are excited to get this little Gem. She needs a little polishing to bring her back, but thats part of the good $$ deal we made. Cold weather camping is goign to be much warmer!

Hi JSBCustoms,
Great floorplan on that 2106DS
Brochure
The last time I went cold weather camping I was in a small tent which had a fixed vent on the ceiling. I never could get warmed-up all night. I always prefer the trailer/motorhome camping; much more fun that way!
Welcome to the forum.

Thanks Eagle5. Looking forward to it. Cant wait to make this one our own.
I feel in love with the Mini in Red back when I forst saw one at a campground. I idnt think the wifey would go for it but to my surprise, she was tuggin me out the door when I showed her the dealers listing. Of course Red is her favorite color. :-)

Hoping to find some schematics for this unit. Winne's website seems to not really offer much for these units. Seems to be more for the motor coaches. Really love the features they offered on these though Im not a huge Shwinteck fan when it comes to slideouts. they are pretty easy to work on.

Check out this LINK for information on obtaining wiring and construction drawings for your unit.

3: The Wife found some baskets that fit perfectly behind the sofa under the bed that we can load up with our dry goods, spices, etc. that we carry from the house and will stay out of the way and stay put during travel.

4: Reupholstered the Valances to match more with the red and replaced all Hinges/Handles/Pulls to black hardware to break up some of the bland-ness that the interior had.

Wow, what a HUGE difference that polishing effort made!

Be sure to post your efforts over in the travel trailers forum if you find the time. You'll get a ton of interest over there.

I started a wiring diagram thread a while back that should pertain to your 2106DS. Find it here: https://www.winnieowners.com/forums/...ram-360528.htm I primarily discuss the wiring under the rig vs. how the wiring is routed and divided into circuits inside. I really need to do that sometime. From your photos, yours and mine appear nearly identical except for dinette vs couch.

Hi JSBCustoms,
That is some mighty fine work you did there. That trailer looks better than new.
Regarding the oxidation on the exterior, would you please share if you used an electric buffer, your polishing compound, and any protective wax?
The dogs look like they are having fun!
Many thanks, Eagle5
