I thought Winnebago had one. Not in the Minnie line, but the ultralights... one size up.

Reread my last reply & apologizing, I will send files of Winnebago One 29Rl wiring to those who wish to have them. Love the mods, especially the rod rack.

Thanks anthonyv.

I bought a new table for the Minnie. As you 2101DS owners may recall the table that came with the Minnie is in an awkward place to lift out. It also weighs around 23#. I ordered an inexpensive one from Wal-Mart that is a perfect fit and about 8 pounds lighter. It is very sturdy. I like it a lot better than the other one. Here are some photos and a link. The top photo shows the stowed position.

Just an FYI. There is quite a display of the Winn trailers at the Pomona RV show with a factory rep there. They claim Fit and finish to be the best.

Easy! The table legs are removable. Lift the table up and remove legs from either the floor mounts or table top. Remove bench cushions, place table top across the opening, replaces the cushions using back cushions along with seat cushions to make a mattress and you're ready for the bedding.

We shopped all brands for nearly 8 months. I'd say they are correct. Unfortunately, the industry average is pretty low, so being the best still leaves room for improvement... We've been very happy with ours except the dinette to bed conversion. Specifically, once the table is down, the cushions do not fit flat. They are slightly too big and tend to pop up, so making the bed can be frustrating. Fortunately with bunks, we have never had to use it.

We did a lot of looking also before we settled on our 2101DS Minnie. The design, fit and finnish is very good. However, the mattress was not as comfortable as we wanted. We ordered this topper from Amazon and it made a world of difference. I used a sharp butcher knife to remove 3" from the length.

new 2015 winnebago 2101 FBS

Purchased a pink Minnie Winnie 2101 FBS at the Hershey show. Took it to the Jersey shore to test it out before it is put away for the winter. Tows great no problem with our Ford Explorer Sportrac. We like the workmanship of the camper,seems to be well made. Tows great with an equalizer hitch and sway control,probably overkill but I don't want any problems.We traded in a 2013 R Pod 178 which we were also happy with but we liked the layout and larger bathroom of the Winnebago. Many people were interested in seeing the inside of the Pink Winnie. Fellow campers at the campground were impressed when we informed them that Winnebago donated $1000 for each pink camper sold to the Cancer Society. We're enjoying our pink camper so far.It does start conversations . Getting ready to winterize it, was only 38 last night. I looked for info on winterizing in this forum and was helpful.

Congratulations Carl on the new Minnie. We really need a few photos. Don't think I've seen a pink one.

I finished winterizing our Minnie on Saturday using TDI-Minnie's method.
