Just got the Winnebago One 26RK

Hello everyone. I am new to these forums but not new to the camping and trailer towing life. I have had several campers over the last 30 years and have finally found one that fits our lifestyle. We just pulled the trigger on the new Winnabago One 26RK. My wife and I started out many years ago with a popup then a bigger popup then a TT with queen rear slide then a 33' TT and now that the kids are almost out of the house we needed a camper that was more tailored to my wife and I and sometimes my daughter. We saw this camper at an RV show and fell in love with it. I was surprised with the fit and finish and what seems like higher quality from what we are used to. This time around we took our time looking and we kept coming back to this one. Is there anyone else out there who bought the new Winnabago? Looking for others to compare notes with that actually own one also.....

Not a bad floorplan for two old folks. We had a Keystone Sprinter 25RK for 10 years and liked it a lot. The only thing your floorplan lacks that Darling Wife demands is a big closet. Those two itty bittie "shirt wardrobe" closets in the bedroom aren't nough for us.

Here's our new one: Walk-around bed, seperate bathtub/shower, and nice big closet. Skyline Nomad Joey 196s.

LOL...Smokey...Take a better look....We have the slide out wardrobe closet which is no way "itty bitty" Also the floor to ceiling linen closet in the bathroom is huge. We replaced a 2008 Keystone Hornet 27DBS with this new Winni 26RKS and have a ton of extra room we didn't have.

The floorplan for the 26RK on page two at the following link doesn't show a closet or wardrobe on the slideout.

It shows a large refer and lots of seating space under an overhead cabinet, but no wardrobe or closet.

The plans are woefully short on closet space for our use.....For a weekend trailer it would do Ok.

The wardrobe is listed as an option and does not show on their floorplan. The floor to ceiling closet in the bathroom is 17" deep and almost 19" wide. There is more room than you think in these. Look at one firsthand with the options. I am very impressed with the quality.

Here you can see the slideout from the outside. This option is not showed in the floorplan drawing.

There is also a twin pull out bed in the sectional. The floorplan on paper is deceiving. Look at it in person and it is very spacious. But hey, that is why there are many different brands and floorplans. What is right for one is not right for all. This unit will fit the needs for my wife and me and we have cabinet space to spare. The front outside storage compartment is also huge.

Re: Just got the Winnebago One 26RK

We bought the 26RK a few weeks ago. We previously had a Jayco 26FK that had two big closets. The Winnebago's slide out wardrobe and full closet in the bathroom are plenty big. The comment about the shirt closets being okay for a weekend is short sighted.

We love our Winnebago! The quality is definitely a step up from most RVs. In case you didn't know, the onboard Jensen electronics are made for rough RV service and hold up well to travel vibration. No cheapo consumer grade TV in this coach.

These are very nice looked at them when we got ours. Beautiful inside and out. We bought the Ultra Lite model 27RBDS. Wife loved the bath room and slides across from each other. I would have preferred the 29RL with the wardrobe closet. But she needs to Happy. Anyway we both love it.
Maybe more people will be buying them since Winnebago is back in the TT market. The dealer has sold a lot of the smaller Minnies also.

what do folks think of the new winnebago tt??

We are seriously looking at the Minnie 2101DS. Love the looks of it and the fact that it has two couches. We really don't like the dinettes, have one now and it is so uncomfy. Would love the One but our truck can't pull it, too heavy. Does anyone out there have one of the Minnie tt? How is Winnebago for warranty work? IS this a well made tt?

My wife and I just purchased a Minnie 2451bhs (Red) a few months ago. We've only made a couple trips with it, but we are loving it so far. I think somebody mentioned the dinette being uncomfortable, I would agree with that. That would be the only complaint we would have, and then it's just a minor one. Other than that, the construction looks good, better than most tts I've been in. I can't recall off the top of my head about warranties... Everything has its own deal. If nobody beats me to the info... I will hunt out my warranty info and fill you in.

waiting for one to get to the closet dealer so we can go see it

Thanks I would like to know about warranty info. There are no dealers close to me that have one of the Minnie tt to look at. I am waiting for the closet dealer that carries the Winnebago towables brand to get one in. So far it is on my short lifst along with a JAyco 20m with the murphy bed. Wish more brands had murphy beds!

Murphy bed

R-Vision Trail-Lite Trek has Murphy bed option. Just traded Outback 21RS for Trek 23RBS with murphy bed and love it. Lots of cabinet space and counter top space.
