hi folks i'm ian baker the product specialist here at American RV and gorgeous Grand Rapids Michigan today. I'm here to tell you all about the 2017 Winnebago mini 2455 bh this is an awesome bunkhouse unit weighs little over 50 200 pounds the one we're going to demo today does have the platinum exterior as well let's go ahead and start right up here on the front first thing you'll notice is the power tongue jack this really makes it nice and simple when you're hooking up or disconnecting the tow vehicle just touch of a, button that will raise and lower the tongue there's also a light right underneath here to give a little bit of extra visibility, if you're hooking up or disconnecting at night behind that's your propane tank cover nice and easy to access just undo these thumb screws you can lift up the door and that will give you access to your 220 pound propane tanks behind that you will see the rails for your battery box then coming up the front here just diamond plating this diamond plating here helps protect the front end many rocks or debris to get thrown up by your tow vehicle that way it doesn't scratch up the beautiful fiberglass front end speaking of beautiful fiberglass take a look at this side wall Winnebago towables use one of the best construction methods in the industry for the sidewalls this is a true poor gelcoat exterior, if you're not familiar with that the closest thing.
I can compare it to is a bolt hall they have a very similar process and that's why you can see the shine and luster in here just like you can on a boat you can buff this out it'll be beautiful for the life of the coach. So, definitely very high end, if you get nice and close you won't see any fibers or anything in there take a look at the pass through real quick here. I'll open this up for you nice large pass through big door you have that same size door on both sides large opening and on that far side, if you notice there's a battery disconnect that's very convenient as well.
So, when you're done camping instead of having to disconnect the battery from the terminals you just go ahead and turn that disconnect that will kill all power to the coach large power awning on here as well you can see it starts in the front here goes over your doorway all the way back on the other side of the outside kitchen. So, huge power awning just touch, button that rolls out same thing to go right back in getting into the 2455 is nice and easy you have three steps here and easy grab handle this will help you from the first step all the way inside the coach, if you'd like to watch TV outside not a problem they have you covered right here's a little sticker to locate where the backer is that we know exactly where to mount your TV then your TV connections will be right here the electrical outlet obviously can be used regardless, if you have a TV or not, if you want to plug something else in like an electric griddle you can go ahead and do that too, if you want some music right underneath the pile rotting there you'll see two speakers those are connected to your blue two or the multimedia Center inside that multimedia Center is bluetooth capable. So, that way, if you want to sit out here under the awning you can use your smartphone or tablet be able to control it via bluetooth.
So, you can use streaming music services or go ahead and use music right on the device itself, if you look at the rims those are some pretty cool rims on there those are the deluxe rims Luminum alloy rims. So, less chance for it to rust or corrode and you have the blue accents on there to really gives it some pop and flare the nitrogen filled tires too. So, nitrogen filled tires.
I have more even tire wear and it'll give you a better ride while going down the road, but over here is your outside kitchen open this guy up you'll see, if plenty of room there in your fridge. So, you can fit some condiments there some beverages as well and, if you want to do a little bit of cooking just go ahead and open this up these actually come over and lock into place on both sides here you'll see you have additional storage right there just perfect for cops your sink right here and we open this guy up you have a two burner cooktop there. So, that's nice and convenient and again as.
I mentioned that is underneath the power awning. So, that way you'll make sure you get shade while you're out here cooking come around to the back side this is your rear mounted ladder so, if you want to get up on the roof or any kind of maintenance or, if you just want to get up there and hang out it is a fully walkable roof. So, you have the capability to do that window right here in the back is nice lets in some natural light will see that when we go inside a rear mounted spare tire the cool thing about this it does have a cover on here.
I love having a spare tire on a travel trailer hopefully you never have to use it, but in the event that you do it's a great peace of mind knowing it's riding right back here you know it's going to be in good shape because that cover is protecting it 30 amp detachable power cord there as you come around to the off door side here nice big slide on this unit you can see that outside shower this has both hot and cold access and black tank flush, if you're not familiar for black tank flush what that does for you instead of to drag a host through the RV you putting it down the toilet to wash out your black tank when you're done camping just take that hose hook it up right here the black tank has sprayers built in it will go ahead and wash it out for Nia all right. I know it's gorgeous on the outside let's go take a look at the inside welcome to the inside of the 2017 Winnebago mini 2455 BHS this particular model is in the Onyx interior let's go ahead and start off on the kitchen right here. So, you'll see you have nice big countertops good prep space they further aided that by having sink top covers here as well as your cooktop cover now anytime you have big countertops it means you're also going to get big storage underneath.
So, you can take a look right there see you have huge storage areas there which is awesome and then that will continue on here around, if you come right over here underneath the sink open that up for you as you can see right there again very large storage, but as. I mentioned they really fully utilize this countertop by giving you the covers both e sink top covers our cutting board quality. So, you can go ahead and flip them over to use them for such double bowl stainless steel sink with a high rise faucet makes it nice and easy to do dishes then right over to the side as.
I mentioned the three burner Atwood cooktop this does fold up. I like the atwood the front ones high output you have great flame control there on the front too and of course Alvin underneath, if you want to do a little baking inside of the oven you have a large bank of four drawers you can see they are full extension ball bearing drawers. So, it's perfect they're large enough you need your serving utensils like spoon spatula things like that you can easily fit those in there, if we take a look up top good storage up top here as well both fair a little bit of extra right over here in the sandwich in the middle there is the microwave then underneath you have a fully functional hood with a light and a fan LED lights here make it nice and bright.
I like the LED lights thieves a fraction of the power and they don't put out near as much heat as your standard incandescent bulbs now of course those give you light at night during the day you can see you have windows are there actually a lot of windows in this coat. So, it is nice and bright during the day which is awesome rounding out the kitchen right over here is the dematic fridge freezer combo you can see you have plenty of space cut out right there which is nice for taller items like a half gallon of orange juice or two liter of soda something like that this unit does run off of both propane and electric also has automatic switch over. So, what that means, if you're running it off propane as soon as you plug that into shore power it'll automatically switch over to electric for you saving you on your propane gas right here is the two bunks this is in the industry what we call a double over double the reason for it is both of these bunks are double wide so, if you need to you can sleep two children per bunk which is great or, if you have larger kids through on camping with teenagers there's enough room that they can sprawl out on here 250 pound weight limit on the top.
So, again as. I mentioned, if you do have two small children wouldn't be an issue lights on both top and the bottom and also a window on top bottom bunks too, but underneath here you have good extra storage area my opinion this is a perfect place to put a laundry basket that way you have a spot to go ahead and throw off the dirty lowes then right back here is the bathroom one of the things. I always talk one on Winnebago products is the doors.
I know it sounds silly, but. I'm telling you when you're out there shopping RVs open up some Winnebago doors on the inside here open up some of the competition you'll quickly see what. I mean these doors they shut perfect every time there's not a lot of slack it just goes to show you the quality that Winnebago puts in the product right in the back side of the door here is a robe hook pretty self-explanatory there down in the corner is your toilet plenty of legroom here all the way around.
I'll sneak on in kind of show you you know you can see here because the angle you have a lot of room both up top and right here at the knees over here is the shower i'll go ahead and step inside here for you you can see you have shelving running down the side there which is great what we're here is your hand wand you have this slide system for your curtain slides shut just like that pretty neat nice and easy then right up top here you have a vent. So, that that does provide a little bit of additional headspace there as well over to the side is a mirrored medicine cabinet storage behind that down below your sink top and vanity stainless steel bowl in here again showing you Winnebago quality upgraded bowls electrical outlet there and additional storage here underneath as we move out of the bathroom we can move over into our main living area one of the first things you'll notice is this right here. So, this is multi-purpose, if you want you can use this as pantry space or you can use it as hanging space for kids clothes you'll see a hanging rod right there up across the shelves are removable.
So, again you can kind of do with it what you want thermostat right here on the side electrical outlet down here the reason that's important because right here is your slide out dinette so, if you want to work on a laptop or tablet you go ahead and sit right here to dine that and you have a place to plug it in, but. I love having the u-shaped dinette and the bunk model is more room for everyone to sit around large table here as well that's the other thing to look at when you're looking at you shape dinette sometimes they have a big you, but this tiny tape there's no way you can you know fit plates on their not the case here it is nice and large also the great thing about you dinette is, if you have additional gas that need to stay the night this makes into a large bed you just take the the rails out there the poles and then the table sits on the rails all along the seat fill that in with cushions and again that makes a big enough bed that can easily sleep two adults large windows all the way around here as well letting a lot of natural light during the day which is nice the right up front this is the entertainment center not only do have a jensen TV, but you also have jensen multimedia center the reason i bring that up the reason it's a big deal manufacturers pay more money for Jensen electronics, but it is one hundred percent worth it the reason is these are built specifically for the RV industry. So, they're able to withstand the shocks and vibrations from going down the road as well as the temperature extremes from very hot to very cold this multimedia center is a CD CD player radio and a DVD player so, if you do want to watch a movie just go ahead and pop it right in also as.
I mentioned we were outside this is Bluetooth capable and it controls the speakers both inside and outside a little bit of extra storage right up here and extra storage right down below there as well let's step on into the bedroom here up front. So, on both sides the bedroom you have a car titian that you can close off for added privacy. So, again, if you do have extra guests or you know the kids are going to sleep you can go ahead and shut that for as.
I said that extra privacy this is really cool to the TV actually spins around. So, you can go ahead and undo a lock this will spin right around so, if you want to watch a show before bed you can go ahead and turn that around and and do absolutely that both sides do have windows. So, you can get a nice cross breeze coming through queen bed right here there is storage underneath as well strut supported you can see how easy it is to lift up you barely have to lift it and then of course you can access everything underneath very easily two different storage systems on the side this side over here you actually have hanging wardrobe storage there's a rack right here up top nice shelf down below and an electrical outlet so, if you need to charge a cell phone or, if you sleep with a CPAP machine there is enough room to go ahead and do that the other side you can see there you have a pullout drawer a nice night stand and again an electrical outlet.
So, same thing need to charge anything run a CPAP you can do. So, on that side of the bed as well storage going across the top here and, if you look right up top you'll see a nice event. So, again you can get good cross ventilation last, but not least right here is a king jack this is your TV antenna this is an upgrade over a standard antenna as well because you don't have to love raise it up or worry about bringing it back down when you're done camping it's one less thing to worry about it's not going to break off all you have to do is turn it to find the best signal all right folks that's pretty much going to wrap it up again this is a 20-17 Winnebago mini 2455 BHS this is a great bunkhouse unit you know you have the double bunks in the back you have the outside kitchen large you dinette high quality amenities you know you saw how well-built the doors are the true poor gelcoat exterior is second to none you definitely need to come take a look at this one, if you do have any questions or comments please feel free to leave those in the section below or.
