New Owner from MI

Hey everyone! Figured I'd pop in here to say hi. Picked up a 1988 Minnie-Winnie about 6 weeks ago and have already done 3 weekends with it. Nice unit, no leaks, everything works and even has original floor mats and curtains all in great shape. Planning a week in the U.P. of Michigan in a couple of weeks to see the fall colors... then it's off to storage for the winter Next spring can't come too soon

Welcome to iRV2 . Glad to have you & post often.

Dave & I will be in lower MI in a couple weeks, also to view the fall colors. The change seems to be about a week ahead of schedule (due to the dry summer here) so I hope we don't miss the grand show.

Safe travels.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. Hopefully there will still be some color in the UP by the time I get there (be there the 5th). The west side may be past peak but the east side should be good yet. Northern lower peninsula should just be coming into peak that week. Hard to plan those type of trips when you have to put in for vacation early.... just gotta guess and hope

I've looked around the Winnebago Owner's Forum already. Luckily I haven't had any real questions to ask about the MH. The couple of small things I've figured out. Didn't know about the chat, I'll see if I can remember to stop in nexty week.
