Speaking of vibration, get those wheels balanced.

All 4 of mine took a surprising amount of lead. I can only imaging the vibrations that caused inside.

Just back from our 3rd trip in the Minnie great time , did not see any other Minnie's on the road. PhxJohn did you get the new trailer and truck yet< if so had it out yet . pictures please , your last set up looked killer , love to see the new one.
We went to Sunset Crater outside Flagstaff AZ and the Wupatki Indian ruins. Sunset Crater Volcano erupted about 950 years ago and the lava flow left behind ( see picture) looks out of place in the forest that has grown around it.
The night time picture I loaded is the factory LED awning lights on the Minnie , boy do they light up the patio.

We just traded our 2006 Itasca Horizon MH for the 2015 Winnebago 31RLSS Ultralite towable. Alot of differences from a MH to a towable. So far we have had no issues that are notable.

Congratulations and welcome to the Winnebago towable crowd. If you haven't looked, there is also a couple of threads in the Winnebago Owners' section of the forum.

We traded our 2004 Journey in for our 30RESS and we love it. Just had 3 slide toppers installed today. Haven't been on our maiden voyage yet but soon.
Probably will be much cheaper to maintain. Seems like we have more room than the motorcoach.

I'll be really interested in the experiences of these that just got new Ultra Lites. I still haven't given up hope.

27RBDS

Our 27RBDS is approx. 5 months old. We've had a couple of factory issues, that is SLOWLY being addressed by Giant RV in So Cal.

1. Day of delivery, took it out for a shakedown and found a nipple on the sewer connect to be broken and started spewing gray water. Got some crazy glue for a temp fix. That worked.

2. Found a decal on the entrance door cut from dealer having the door and passenger-side bedroom window at the same time. Decal on front cap defective, due to a lack of sealant.

3. Both compartment doors were buckled at each end.

4. Silicone sealing job from factory was sub-standard, some areas no sealant at all.

We were given an appointment and took unit in for repairs and left it for two weeks. Compartment doors replaced, door decal partially replaced and a new sewer connect was replaced. When I tried to dump at campsite, the new sewer connect started squirting gray water WAY more than the original problem with broken nipple, partial re-sealant job completed. Now I've been waiting 3 weeks to hear from Giant RV on when they can complete the defects.

Other than that, we are pleased with the unit. So far, we have 4300+ miles. I've noticed a couple of things. Don't open the passenger-side bedroom window and the door at the same time. That causes interference and cuts the door decal. Also, don't set the thermostat to a value below 74 to get sooner
cooling, it will cause the A/C to trip the C/B. This may be an issue just with my unit.

I will contact Winnebago and see if I can get some diagrams for my unit, like water, electrical and whatever they can provide.

Just got back from a 6 day trip to Fools Hollow Lake in Show Low, AZ. Our first trip in the new trailer and first time at a full hook up camp ground. Very convenient, no worries about using up our water or full tanks. Nice but not my idea of camping. All systems working as designed, didn't have to work on anything.

Any new reports on the Ultra Lites? I'm about 6 months away from trading up... need all the feedback I can get between now and then.

Can't wait for spring.

Went to first RV show of the year, and bought a 2016 2455BHS. This is our 3rd TT in 6 yrs. and we love it. Took the top fullsize bunk out as just the two of us + dog. Trying to figure when I would ever use the outside kitchen. Are there any other Minnies in Ga.
