Can you roll the awning part way in so the LED are pointing up against the awning so the light is diffused?

You cannot with these, as they are at the RV end of the awning, affixed to the RV wall.

Thank you Bill! We just got back from a beach trip to So Cal with our Sunnybrook/Winnebago and still enjoying it very much!

I really wanted an Ultra Lite 28DDBS but the dealers in my area sold out of them, didn't order more, and then proceeded to try to sell me the bigger one. I found one last month that had been used once and traded back in, but the dealer was asking the same price as new... :( ... and wouldn't budge... :( ... so I had to opt for a different brand. I am very happy with it but would have been just as happy if I could have gotten the Winnebago... who knows, maybe more so...


Just dropped back in on this thread to say thanks for all the advise while I was looking.


Safe travels!

What are you thinking about carrying? Most folks will advise against attaching a bike rack and bikes. But, if you're thinking of a tool/utility box or something that doesn't weight that much, it may be possible. But, I think you have to deduct the weight of the spare tire and rack from the 100 lbs. Does anyone know if that is correct?

I suspect the spare tire takes up most of the 100 lbs the rear bumper is rated for. You could probably add an RV grill but not much more.

the spare and mount isn't to heavy at all, I would remove them and put in the TV. the aluminum rack I have is about 15 pounds, I want to carry my champion 3100 inverter generator on the back. I have the curt bumper hitch on it, which by the way is the best design out there. My concern is the dumb way they mounted the bumper to the frame, instead of bringing the frame out another 4 inches, they welded a piece to the bumper than to the frame. I just don't feel warm and fuzzy unless I supported it better. I did open up the enclosed bottom and there are no other frame pieces to weld on to, all holding tanks. I have all the blue prints from the factory for the rear wall for my ladder rack, the floor and the roof.

After much research... I would recommend using direct mount to I-beam

New 2016 2201ds

hi, I'm new to the forum. We bought our 2201DS last July.We've made 2 trips to Yellowstone and one to Crater lake so far. Just love this trailer. Haven't had any problems so far. Some of the upgrades I've done are new Kicker speakers overhead and a pair of 4" Kickers in the sleeping area, a backup camera, a hanger for the tension bars. Had to put some expanded metal over the screen door due to the fact our pug likes to walk right through the screen door when it is closed. Also installed some magnetic latches for the accordian doors in the sleeping area. I kept getting stabbed in the back every time I entered the sleeping area Looking forward to seeing what other upgrades you all are doing

Can you share any details about the speakers you installed? How much of an imrovement did they make in the sound?

I hope you enjoy your 2201 DS as much as we've enjoyed ours.
