Newbie here Lance 1475 vs Winnebago Micro Minnie

Hi all, this will be my first purchase. I am looking to buy a used TT. Today I looked at a 2017 Lance 1475. Overall I liked it, like the idea of CC. I am also interested in the macro minnie 1706FB, I have not found one locally yet to compare. anyone who owns either one of these I would love to hear your input.

Hey ctina Check out "traveling Robert" youtube channel. He owns a micro minnie that I believe is a 1706FB model. He's posted many great videos of his travels in "Minitini," including several about the camper itself. Should provide you with lots of good information on that model.

If you're going to do any cold weather camping or traveling, the heated tanks on the Lance are a plus, and if it has the all weather package, it would be the better choice. Winnebago makes a good trailer and I had a 2013 Minnie 2201DS which we liked but decided to upgrade to our Bay Star. If I were making the choice, I'd be going with the one with the best insulation and ducted heat/AC. For a small trailer, I like the floorplan of the Lance...nice rig for a solo traveler.

Just looked at the specs for the micro Minnie and didn't see any options for heated tanks or all weather package. So...I'd go with the Lance as it will be better in the cold, and more efficient to cool in the summer heat. Just my opinion!

Thanks Rosebud1218 from your neighbor in RI, will look it up on YouTube.

Thanks scbwr, I did like the floor plan, like the fact I could even take out one CC. I will be traveling with 3 dogs which would allow a little more room. I’m hoping to escape the cold weather, heat not high on list but probably air condition.

There is just so much to consider when buying one. Sorry I could not respond to both of you in a separate post not sure if I can or know how just yet. I just joined the forum today.

For long time performance, quality, resell


Both have some quality issues.

But Lance has more quality and some nice long term qualities.

I would steer you to a Escape or Casita. They don’t leak, they’re light and low rate of depreciation.

Check them out on YouTube. Find one on the Escapeforum.org

Agree with check out 'Traveling Robert' on YouTube. I have both brochures. I see the little Winnebago has a GVWR of 7,000lbs and the little Lance has a GVWR of 3,700lbs.

What is your tow vehicle? I have a friend that has a little Winnebago and a Toyota Tacoma. He says that is as heavy as he would want to tow.

The Lance is good quality and easier to tow. The Winnebago is good quality and not as easy to tow.

Welcome to the IRV2.COM

Hello, I am a member myself and wanted to take some time to welcome you and your family to this IRV2 Forum. As you may feel somewhat overwhelmed by all there is to see, read and learn here from others.

So, if you will let’s sit and have a cup <[_]””[_]>’’’’’’ Here is the place to share what’s on your mind as it relates to RV’ing. Everything is here, just for folks and Families. I have some TIPS which I hope will make your visits here more enjoyable. Kind of your FORUM Driving Instructor lol.

Some TIPS:

On top are two menus and the one on top is the forum and the one below that is more helpful and personal for you to tell your story by clicking on USER CP.

So now I would like to show you your SIGN IN Screen. On top RIGHT, is where you click to login and you will find your name, but also are the messages sent to you by the IRV2 Administrators who keep everything running like a well-made Grandfather’s Clock. Now move your eyes to the TOP LEFT and you will see the HOME key, click and you will find a very easy forum menu for your review. But going all the way down to the bottom at the STATS MENU for the over-all Forum DATA. Now panning over from HOME to FORUMS, click and a small MENU will open showing you Community, RV Lifestyle, Reginal and RV Camping Forums. But there is more. The next two are RV FORUMS, OWNER FORUMS, PHOTOS, CLASSIFIEDS, CAMPGROUNDS, and MORE. One last point if I may, when you POST a NEW THREAD go down under the TEXT INPUT and add some TABS, anywhere between 1 or 5-TABS, EXAMPLE: dog, dogs, pets, Campfiredogs, and make sure to add a comma between each TAB. TABS act as FORUM addresses to get your post to others who are interested in reading about? “your dog stories” lol

But before you explore each of them something you should know about is THE MEMBERS MENU. Under the MENU I just told you about is your menu and lots to see and do here as well.

First, click on USER CP and once this opens a menu on the left from top to bottom will appear. Just take them one at a time adding your information as to what you would like the IRV2 forum folks to know about you? Next is about your REGISTER, FILES over to writing your own BLOG moreover to LOGGING OUT.

There is a lot to a Motorhome we call our Recreational Vehicle, RV. One last point as from time to time at the end of a word you will see down arrow ^, yes, I know it’s up, sorry did not have a down arrow on my keyboard. Clicking on them you will find sub-menus and more information to guide you on each of your IRV2 Travels.

Make sure to read and review the rules.

Any questions just post and ask the group as a whole or having IRV2 Forum Friends in your Personal File can also be helpful in asking bouncing questions off. Now we're coming to the end of this very quick intro

So, explore and when ready SHARE your knowledge skills and abilities with IRV2 forum.

Looks like my CUP is almost empty…[_]>’’ “”” ‘’

Safe Travels and Happy Trails, as you explore by RV the Freedom that is the American Road Trip.
