hi folks. I'm.
Ian Baker the product specialist here at American RV and Grand Rapids Michigan today. I'm here to tell you all about the 2017 Winnebago Winnie drop 1 70s this is a great couples model let's go ahead and start up front here. I'll make our way around then we'll head on in.
So, right up front you'll notice the propane tank cover you do have a 20-pound propane tank in there very easy to access just undo the thumb screw you can go ahead and lift this door up and get right down into the tank behind that you'll see you have rails there for your battery box then right down below you have a tube here that's for your sewer hose this unit doesn't have a bumper. So, instead they just give you these in this compartment right here which is nice and convenient as well then coming up the front you can see the black diamond plating this helps protect the front end from any rocks or debris the debris that gets thrown up by your tow vehicle that way it helps again protect the front end. So, you don't get it all beat up, if you come around to the side wall this is the beautiful cherry red exterior on this unit and you can take a look at the shine and luster that you have in this sidewall Winnebago Tobal products have some of the best side walls in the towable industry this is a true pour gel coat exterior, if you're not familiar with that the closest thing.
I can compare it to is a bolt hole you know it's a very similar process and it has that shine in that luster you can buff it and it will stay looking nice for the life of the product. I know, if you look in here you can look really closely you won't see any fibers like you will in most fiberglass sidewalls on travel trailers to take a look right in here you will see the large storage you have here this is underneath the bed you can see how big that storage area is which is great and very easy to access here as well then right underneath you can see the jacks, if you take a look you'll see this right here - this is what they call a Huck bolt this unit has a hawk bolted frame Huck bolt is definitely a better construction method not only is it nice and strong, but it's also a lot easier to repair so, if you ever do have damage on the underside of this unit or, if you back into something you hit some this is a lot easier to fix a lot less costly as well. So, that is a huge advantage then the jacks on here themselves again these are ba L jacks these take a fraction of the turns of your standard jacks to put up and down which really makes setting up and breaking down camp that much quicker that much easier on you you can see the awning on this unit this is another thing that's a big deal to have on your teardrop shape this is a great awning all you do is you just take the rod you put it right up there and you just spin it you turn it it's nice and easy the awning comes out again phenomenal awning to have onto your drop most the time they have like a bag awning which is a huge pain in the, butt to set up.
So, definitely good on Winnebago for putting that awning on there to outside speakers here as well those are connected to your multimedia Center inside, but that multimedia Center is bluetooth capable so, if you have a smartphone or tablet you want to sit right out here and connect to that via bluetooth you can absolutely do. So, electrical outlet here too. So, again, if you need to plug anything in whether it's a phone or blender whatever else you need to you can do that there to take a look at the tire on here you'll see it is an aluminum rim which is great also nitrogen fill and, if you take a look right underneath here that is a torsion axle that's a big advantage as well great thing about the torsion axle is you know it's a better suspension system in the leaf spring so.
I really like that they went ahead and put that on there a little bit more expensive, but again you will definitely enjoy that especially with having a lighter weight model lighter weight camper like this because chances are you won't have a big huge rig pulling it then right over here you'll see your spare tire that's mounted underneath nice and easy to get to you see they have the rod extending out. So, that way you can just put the tool right in there go ahead and lower that tire down now hopefully you never have to use that, but in the event that you do you will certainly appreciate having that getting into the coach is very simple you have one step, but one step is all you need because again lightweight low profile they try to keep this low to the ground. So, that way you don't have the wind you know up over top of your tow vehicle.
So, again you get a better overall tow experience. So, easy to get in and out of the coach with one stop and you have the foldable easy grab handle to assist you there as well then right in the back here you can take a look at this a little bit of extra storage compartment this is great you know perfect size, if you have a grill or something you want to stick out here you can certainly do that or you know, if you have you know wood or whatever else you want to bring it's just great to have that there one other thing, if you come around to the back side one of the things. I do like to talk about on here is the width of this unit.
So, this is a six and a half foot box the reason that's important is because again you're prying it with a smaller SUV something like that and having that smaller the smaller box is big advantage because then you don't have to buy mirror extenders for most vehicles anyway to extend beyond it you can see without putting those on there. So, again that is very cool on the off tour side you'll notice a couple things here you have your 30 amp detachable power cord right there potable water fill your cable and then a black tank flush there as well down below you can see your termination both your gray and black empty out right here and then up on the slide is your outside shower with both hot and cold so, if you need to use that it is placed right there you take a look up top this is something else is pretty cool right on the roof you will see that they have a king Jack antenna we can take a look at that when we go inside as well, but the advantage of that is it's one last thing again you have to worry about when breaking down camp because to find the signal all you have to do is turn it you don't have to raise it up and you know forget about it and then it breaks off. So, again making camping just that much easier for you, but alright folks that wraps it up for the outside let's go take a look at that inside welcome to the inside of the 2017 Winnebago Winnie drop 1 70s this particular model is in the mineral interior.
So, let's start off right over here this is a camp side dinette. I really like when manufacturers do this because you have a nice window right here looking out at the campsite and that's exactly what you want to see. So, whether you're sitting here you know having morning cup of coffee or breakfasts you have a great view to enjoy also, if you need to do any work you will notice right down on the bottom there you have an electrical outlet.
So, you can plug in a laptop tablet or whatever else electronics you need to and, if you need some extra sleeping space this table does drop down into a bed you can see the rails right there in which your table sits on fill it in with cushions and you have your additional sleeping space LED light right here above you actually have LED lights throughout the coach you can see LED lights are great because they put out a lot of light pan they use a fraction of the power and don't put out near the heat and. So, especially, if you're camping where you don't have shore power and you're just running off batteries you will really learn to appreciate LED lights up top here you can see they have the nice glass open it up good storage space right up there and then right over here is a multimedia Center. So, this is what controls your speakers outside as.
I mentioned this is Bluetooth capable it's also radio CD and DVD player so, if you do want to watch a movie you can go ahead and pop it in here and you can watch it on your Jensen TV right over here now both these are gents electronics that's a big deal too because manufacturers pay more to have jensen electronics, but they are 100% worth it because they're built specifically for the RV industry they can withstand the shocks and vibrations from going down the road as well as the temperature extremes including even when it gets very cold. So, that way you know your electronics will work season after season that's just one less thing you have to worry about now right above my head here is the AC unit this unit does have ducted heating down below. So, you know being a smaller unit like this this.
I mean that's all you need it does a great job. So, we make our way to the back here go ahead and open this up you'll see when you walk in you have some additional storage right there which is very nice and then right in here is your rear bathroom it is a large bathroom you can see right over here is your neo angle shot our there you have shelving hand wand and an additional vent right up top of course your curtain all the way around LED light mirror on the wall their sink top and vanity good-sized countertop some storage underneath of course electrical outlet there and then right over here is our foot flush lever toilet up above that you have great storage you have kind of a linen closet with a wardrobe down below. So, that way you can go ahead and hang clothes there as well now as you make your way back out right over here is the kitchen is a slide-out kitchen which is nice helps open this space up again you know this is a six and a half foot box, but you would never know it having this slide-out truly opens this space up single bowl sink high rise faucet their electrical outlet over to the side so, if you need to plug anything in there you can certainly do that window to let a natural light LED here at night two burner cooktop right up above storage down below you can see you have good storage here underneath the sink and two large full extension drawers these are perfect, if you need to have any you know silverware of course.
I would imagine you'd bring with you and then you have the second one there for larger utensils like spatulas serving spoons things of that nature then right up top here some additional storage right over here now, if you notice this unit doesn't have an oven that's because they want with a convection oven which is great it saves space you know you want a microwave anyway. So, this is double right here plus it's easier to clean and it cooks faster than the oven as well and then of course because it is space savings you have all that storage underneath which. I'd already showed you right here is your Dometic fridge and food drop down freezer right here you can see that this unit does run off both propane and electric and also has automatic switch over.
So, it is running, if it is running off propane as soon as you plug it into Shore power it'll automatically switch over to electric for you saving you on your propane gas then right up front here is the bed you can take a look at that plenty of space there windows on both sides for nice cross-breeze you have the Shelf going across the top and again LED lights here as. I mentioned so, if you need to do a little bit of light reading you can do that as well, but okay folks that's pretty much going to wrap it up again this is a 2017 Winnebago Winnie drop 1 70s this one has the mineral interior. So, this really is a great couples coach it's nice and lightweight at a little over 2800 pounds you know has good space in here with a slide-out kitchen a ton of great amenities everything from the construction that.
I showed you on the outside it's the things you have inside like you're you know Jensen electronics you have the King Jack there big bathroom with wardrobe in the back this just really is a great one that you don't want to miss out on, if you are interested in you'd like price and availability you can give myself.
