hi folks. I'm.
Ian Baker the product specialist here at American RV in beautiful grand rapids michigan today i'm here to tell you all about the 2017 Winnebago Winnie drop 170 pass this is a great short lightweight travel trailer it weighs just over 2,800 pounds which means it's easily towable by a smaller SUV like a Ford Escape let's go ahead and work our way on the front here we'll make our way around to that head on in well the first thing you'll notice this right here is your propane tank cover nice knees easy to access the tank just undo the thumb screw here lift up the door and that will give you access to your 20 pound tank behind that you have rails for the battery box you can see right down here a place for your sewer hose and coming up the front is black diamond plating this diamond plating helps protect the front end with any rocks or debris that get thrown up by tow vehicles speaking of front end this fiberglass right here this is great this is one piece fiberglass from the front all the way up and coming back down the back side a couple big advantages to having one piece fiberglass roof one you have less chance for any kind of water penetration because you don't have seams going across it's one less spot for water to get into and two because the teardrop shape water is naturally going to run to the front and back of the unit again where you have less seams. So, that is very advantageous we want to feel like to talk on the Winnebagos is the frames this is an upgraded frame be al-haq full frame hulls have a lot of strength and it's easier to repair in case you ever do have any kind of damage also the jacks on here you can see stabilization jack on each of the four corners they take a fraction of the turns watch how quick and easy this is to move these down you know most most the time you just be cranking cranking tanks forever your arm gets worn out that's all it takes you do that in all four corners you're done. So, very very easy to set this unit up take a look at the sidewalls the other thing.
I love about Winnebago products are the quality of the sidewalls you can see the luster and shine in here this is the Platinum exterior, but this is one of the best sidewalls in the industry this is a true pore gel coat exterior the closest thing. I can compare that to is a bolt hole the way that they're made is very similar in process and you know that you can buff that and it will stay beautiful for the life of the boat same thing with the Winnebago towable products, if you look real close you won't see any fibers in here like you do on a lot of the competition. So, very very well built great sidewalls this coach is going to it's built to last and look great for a lifetime take a look right in here.
So, great storage up front you can see right here this was a tool. I use for the jacks this is for your awning the awning on here is nice and easy to you see it has a hook right there all. I have to do is use that tool hook it up then you can just turn it and it will crank out same thing to go back in very very easy awning underneath the awning you have two speakers that way from out sit out here jam out to some music you can go ahead and do.
So, now those speakers are connected to your multimedia Center inside Hubbard it is bluetooth capable. So, that way, if you want to sit out here you can use your smartphone or tablet and you can rock out, if you need to plug anything else in right there you are you have electrical outlet you can plug in a cell phone let your griddle whatever else you need to make our way back a little bit further one of the other things. I like to talk about on the winning drop you know because it's built to be towed behind a smaller vehicle it is low-profile.
So, you only need one step to get in and it's even though it's eight inches with your wheel wells the box itself is only six and a half or eight foot rather sorry six and a half foot the big advantage of that of course is that you don't need mirror extensions on most vehicles to be able to see around the sides. So, that's really cool as. I mentioned getting into the coach very easy low profile one-step foldable easy grab handle here to ensure it is an easy entry not only do you have the big storage in the front, but take a look at this right here you can see you have nice large storage area right in the back move around to the backside again you can take a look see it this is the one piece it just folds right down like that which is awesome as we come around to this side over here detachable 30 amp power cord black tank flush on there which, if you're not fit with the black tank flush what that does for you is instead of having to take a hose and dragging it through your whole travel trailer sticking it down the toilet to wash out the black tank with this you just take that same holes hook it right up black tank has sprayers built-in and it will just rinse it out for you making the process of breaking down camp that much easier and take a look at this lightweight as.
I said you know in just over 2,800 pounds and you have a slide. So, that is awesome built into this slide right there is your outside shower with both hot and cold access, if you need to wash off your feet wash dogs Everett maybe you can do that as well, but. I know you're excited to get inside.
So, let's go take a look welcome to the inside of the 2017 Winnebago winning drop 1 70s this particular model is in the momba interior, if you take a look at the nose the RV you'll see your queen-size bed plenty of room there which is great windows on both sides as well. So, you can get a cross breeze coming through up top you have a shelf and the LED light there in case you want to do a little bit of light reading. So, you make our way over to the side this opens up into the kitchen right here's our Dometic fridge drop down ice box there and you'll see that the controls are nice and easy right up top here this unit does run off of both propane and electric and also has automatic switch over then up top not only is this a microwave this is a convection oven.
I really like having a convection oven in a trailer this size because that gives you more storage in your kitchen which we'll see in a little while plus the convection cooks quicker and it's easier to clean now as we move over to burner cooktop here and because we opted for the convection oven rather than a standard that allows for two very large full extension drawers here underneath plenty of room for all the silverware and then take a look at this you have great storage right there underneath the sink as well speaking of the sink single bowl does give you a sink top cover it is cutting board qualities, if you want flip this over use as a cutting board you can certainly do. So, single Bowl you know again that's all you need to travel trailer this size you have a high rise faucet now not a ton of prep space you do have a little bit back here, but you know at least being able to utilize this you can swing the faucet out of the way that does give you some to work with right here electrical outlet in the back case you need to plug in a coffee maker LED light here to brighten it up a little and you have storage going across the top right back here is your TV jensen TV you have jensen electronics both the jensen TV as well as the jensen multimedia center the reason. I bring that up is Jensen products do cost a little bit more for the manufacturer to install, but they're definitely worth it they're top of the line in the RV industry they're built specifically for the RV industry the reason is they build them to be able to withstand the shocks and vibrations from going down the road as well as the temperature extremes very hot to very cold that way season after season your electronics will continue to work and it will be one less thing you have to worry about the TV is on a swing arm mount so, if you want to watch it while cooking or of course you can move it over to the dinette the bed whatever you want, but that way you get excellent viewing angle on there and then as.
I mentioned this is a multimedia center right here not only is this a radio and CD player it's also a DVD player so, if you want to watch movie you can pop it right in and it will show up on your TV of course then you do have some extra storage right here along the top nice decorative glass on there as you can see LED light here underneath and then our window right here the reason. I bring it up. I love having your door side dinette because you know this is the view you want you open this window up this is where all the cool this is your campsite this is everything's happening you don't want to stare out at your neighbor you know.
So, we're sitting here enjoying your morning cup of coffee breakfast Oh Jay whatever it may be you can definitely enjoy that view so. I love that they have that also this table does drop down it'll sit on these rails right here, if you want to make it bed that will give you some additional sleeping space then right along the back wall here open this guy up this is pretty cool you got some extra storage right there you know, if you want to use it for pantry for a quick access to go out the door you can do that or really whatever else you want, but you know. I like again that they just went ahead and put that there then right here in the back is the bathroom one of the other things.
I love what Winnebago products. I talk about every time is the inside doors on the product they are some of the best doors in the industry every time you use them they open they shot they're great you know. I challenge you when you're out there and you're doing some.
I review shopping you know it's looking all the other tear drops that are out there go and open and close the doors inside you'll pop open they don't shut well not the case here the other thing they're actually framed out in would, if you take a look right there most manufacturers just slap on a piece of plastic trim it slides and falls off not the case here Winnebago uses wood and. I'm telling you some of the best stores in the industry a lot of manufacturers could learn a lot of things about the doors they install now as we come into the bathroom right down here is your toilet as you can see plenty of room and especially a teardrop shape like this you have a ton of room in this bathroom then right above the toilet behind me take a look at that extra storage great storage and there you have the Shelf up top here very large for a linen closet hanging rod right there. So, you know you can put towels up top then right here you can put some clothes and it's big enough you have plenty of room to go ahead and change in here two large counter tops.
So, great countertop space your sink there of course electril outlet right here underneath and then some additional storage there under the sink over in the corner here is a new angle shower now it's not huge, but it is sufficient you know you do have plenty of room as far as height now about six foot tall you see you know, if you're too much taller it might be a little too struggle might have to bend a little, but again this is a teardrop you don't see you know a bathroom this size and a teardrop shower curtain going right along and a hand wand there makes things a little more manageable in what would be a little bit of a tighter space. So, you know this is a great floorplan folks as. I mentioned this is the 2017 Winnebago Winnie drop 1 70s, if you're looking for something that's lighter weight easily total buy your smaller SUV you know you have the family vehicle you don't want to have to go buy a big truck then is a great option weighing in at just over 2,800 pounds and you have the slide here you know you have the the beautiful sidewalls the well-built cabinetry on the doors this is one you don't want to miss, if you aren't interested in this unit and you're looking for price and availability you can either give myself.
