Smile Evergreen iGo vs Winnebago Micro Minnie

Hi Everyone!! My husband and I are so excited to buy a travel trailer, and we have narrowed it down to the Evergreen iGo C184RB or the Winnebago Micro Minnie 2106DS. They both have similar floor plans, but the Evergreen is somewhat cheaper. What are the differences between the manufacturers? Both are aluminum frame with dual axles, which is what is most important to my husband. Thank you in advance for your help!

When we bought our Winnebago Minnie, we also looked at an Evergreen. The fit and finish of the Winnebago was better, and I liked the longer awning on the Winnebago. At the time, the Evergreen unit had the Adzel wall construction, which I would have liked. Since then, in my internet reading, the Winnebagos appear to have fewer problems.

All you can do is check each unit very carefully and see what appears to be the better trailer. Do some online research and see what you can find out. Since buying our Winnebago, I've tried to keep track of any problems and as with any line of trailers, there have been some. But, a lot of owners have been very pleased and had few if any problems.

Be aware of the limitations of the fold up bed in the Winnebago model that you are looking at. We've always ended up replacing the stock mattress with something more comfortable, so I would want a regular mattress rather than a fold up, but that is strictly a personal preferance.

I'm also a fan of the outdoor kitchen which is one of the reasons we went with the 2201DS.

take a look at the Outdoors RV 20 FQ. Sort of in the middle of your 2 examples. While it does not have a slide, we really like the rear U- shaped dinette and that the bedroom is separate from the rest of the trailer. They also build a better trailer in my opinion.

Looked at both, and literally just bought the 2106DS today. I liked what I saw with the Evergreen, but saw some comments on the web that made me wonder. Ultimately, it came down to features, fit, finish and floorplan. RVs are still flawed creatures, but this TT is pretty pretty darn nice. So, you know where my vote is.

I researched travel trailers for about 6 months before we decided on a Winnie Minnie 2201DS. I also liked the Lance 2295 but there was not one available in our area. We looked at the Evergreen but I read some concerning complaints about warranty issues so I scratched them off the list. I guess all RV manufacturers have quality control problems but how they handle them was important to me. We've taken the Minnie out about 10 times since we got it in November. So far, we have not had any problems so the warranty has been a non-issue.

I-Go

You may have read some of my posts on the I-Go Lite. I just wanted to say I still stand by the fact that I will never buy another Evergreen product.After the problems we first had with seams not being sealed and the water damage caused by that.. I still get angry thinking about talking with Evergreens representative on that issue... He is the main reason I will never buy one again..The loose water lines that sent a stream of water through the camper on the first hookup with city water and the water coming in through the heater exhaust vent every time it rained that wasn't sealed didn't help. Reading posts here helped me with the on demand water heater over heating and tripping the shut off..Posts mentioned a recall that the dealer I had working on it didn't know about.. I called Atwood and a very nice lady there told me what to have the dealer order to fix it..It has worked perfectly since..We have been camping several times now with no issues.. I still like the floor plan and it is a good size for us... Evergreen had a chance to impress with service and blew it big time .
