hi folks. I'm.
Ian Baker the product specialist here at American RV in Grand Rapids Michigan and today. I'm excited to tell you all about the 2018 Winnebago mini plus 30 RL SS it's a beautiful triple slide couples coach the floorplan is inspired by fifth wheel. So, something you see a lot in fifth wheel you don't see very often in travel trailers and.
I'm really excited to show you, but let's start on the outside here we'll make our way around and head on in right up front your power tongue jack on a nice high-end travel trailer you expect it to be a little bit easier to hook up and disconnect and that's exactly what this guy does you also have a light there at night right behind that is your propane tank cover very easy to access the tanks just undo the two thumb screws and lift up the door and there are two thirty pound propane tanks in there that way you can camp for an extended period of time behind that are the rails for your battery box then coming up the front here is the black diamond plating which helps protect the front end from any rocks or debris that gets thrown up by your tow vehicle you'll also see on the front that many Plus sports a nice three-quarter front cap really gives it a great look then it also has LED lights here that are inlaid as well now when you come around to the side one of my favorite things about the outside is this right here take a look at the size of this door huge outside storage you can see the big pass-through going all the way through there and this is really neat. So, you have a couple lights in here excuse me one of my favorite parts about the exterior is this right here take a look at the size of this door and the pass-through storage compartment is nice and big. So, you have two lights one on either side the cool thing about this is it has several ways to get into this storage you have the exterior doors here you have two interior doors in the bedroom this one right here as well as this one down low this is a cool thing that this does is this part right here the shelf actually drops down.
So, that way, if you want to use this from the inside this can become your usable storage or again, if you have taller items that you need for travel or, if you want to be able to get those taller items from inside you can leave that up. So, just nice and versatile, but. I think they did a great job they slam latch baggage doors as well as you saw to take a look right underneath couple things to want to talk what under here one is the propane quick connect, if you're someone that likes to grill when you camp this is perfect you can set your grill up right here go ahead and plug that in then you can feed off the 60 pounds of propane up front rather than bringing these separate bottles the other thing.
I want to talk about is the frame to take a look right here you'll see this is a hot bowl. So, the Winnebago travel trailers use a Huck bolt frame which is an upgraded frame the reason it's better one what you're number one place to rust on a frame is right where the weld is. So, by eliminating welds and going to hot bolts you have less of a chance in your frame to rust Anya also it is stronger in the event of an accident it's a lot easier to repair as well so, if you do have any kind of damage it's a lot easier to repair entire sections then right up here you'll see a couple things one you have power stabilizer jacks that's a big deal too and what you notice this has dual control it'll have dual control in the front and the back that way each individual leg or each leg rather can be controlled individually it's something you normally don't get normally you have one control for the front and one for the back.
So, it is nice to have the independent system there also right here you have outside TV hookup you'll see they did put a backer right in the wall itself when they built the side wall. So, that way, if you want a TV out here you can have it installed right there electrical outlet and of course your cable right there too and that is underneath your big power awning. So, speaking of you can see the power awning there just touch a, button that rolls out 15 to roll back in LED light strips sewn into that as well see you don't have to get up there and hang up your lights it is a little bit taller travel trailer and just makes life a lot easier you'll also see outside speakers here those are controlled by your multimedia Center inside, but that unit is Bluetooth capable let's talk about the side wall socket here itself this is a beautiful side wall and this coach the Platinum exterior and Winnebago has one of the best sidewalls in the industry in the travel novel trailers the reason is this is a troop or gelcoat exterior this is the same thing.
I have on my half a million dollar diesel motor homes it's a beautiful sidewall excellent construction you can buff this and it will keep that shine and life luster for the life of the coach. So, definitely a big advantage over most travel trailers in this segment here getting into the Winnebago is nice and easy too you see you have three stops aluminum steps down there they have the rubber grips here too to help you get traction, if it's raining or, if it's wet then you have the foldable easy grab handle as well again just making sure the entrance and exit into the RV is nice and simple we take a look right underneath this slide out here you can see the wheels there you have aluminum alloy wheels less chance for any kind of rust to corrosion nitrogen-filled tires and then you also have torsion axles that's an upgraded system over your normal leaf spring that way this will tow a heck of a lot better than most travel trailers out there as. I mentioned right back here you'll see the dual power stabilizer control.
So, when you come around to the very back here a couple things. I want to talk about one is this guy right here. So, your rear mounted ladder makes it nice and easy to climb up on the roof for any kind of maintenance, if you have to get up there to sweep it off whatever it may be, but this way you don't have to carry a ladder with you in your path through also you have a spare tire right here with the cover that is mounted to the bumper then you'll see the nice big rear picture window so, if you are backed up to a beautiful sight you can certainly enjoy that right there on the off door side right here in your pass-through storage they have gone to a convenience center.
I love when manufacturers do this it's a lot easier to hook up and disconnect you can see you have a spray forward on here filling your tanks is nice and easy you can just flip the switch to either fill the tank or go to city battery disconnect located in here as well satellite cable and then right there you'll see an edition electrical outlet then you can just bring that up right here to the floor all your hoses and stuff can just go right through there that way you know, if it does get any water runoff it's going right down onto the ground which is nice you'll also notice right out here the unit is prepped for solar so, if you not solar on this coach all you have to do is buy the portable vamp panels that have the controller built-in plug it in right there and it will start to trickle charge the battery lastly about halfway down the coach there is also your detachable power cord as well as a black tank flush welcome to the inside of the 2018 Winnebago mini plus 30 RL SS this particular model is in the cobblestone interior as you can see it's nice and open in here thanks to the dual opposing slides and then you also have the barreled ceiling. So, it really makes it nice and open right over here on our campsite slide you see the freestanding table and chairs currently there are two chairs here, but you do have two folding chairs that are stowed away underneath the bed you'll also see big windows on this side of the RV that way you can look out to your campsite it also allows a lot of natural light to come into the camper right over on the wall here you will see an electrical outlet as well as dual USB ports which is great that way, if you want to sit here at the table and do work on a laptop or tablet you're able to do that then same thing right over there on that wall by the cedar seating it also this nice light fixture right up top here that way you don't want to eat a meal obviously at night. I have some dinner you can go ahead and turn that guy on there right here's your theater seating this is probably the best seat in the house for watching TV because it's a straight shot right across both of these do recline you have cup holders here as well and then a little bit of storage here in the center for your remotes and as.
I mentioned you have the plug ins right there then along the back wall here you have a nice long couch you can see how big that is this will easily sleep in adults, if they want to lay you know just on the couch itself, but it is also a trifold sofa you can see the bed right here nice and comfortable to sleep on to dry folds, if you're not familiar with them are the preferable type of sleeper mattress because you don't have a bar in your back like your traditional pull outs or have to worry about an air mattress that's going to deflate on you as. I showed you we were outside nice big rear picture window dual windows on the sides wall sconces there for additional lighting still Brij all across the top you have this nice decorative glass on here strut support it as well. So, that way it's just one hand operation you don't have to hold the door open with the other hand all other thing.
I want to mention this is pretty neat to run underneath you will see both sides also have electrical outlets and do a USB port. So, again same thing need to plug in any electronics you can easily do. So, from the couch then as.
I promised right across from your theater seating is your entertainment center TV here multimedia Center right underneath this is the one that was Bluetooth with controls the speakers outside you can go ahead and control the zones right up front here you can see that on the side this is your radio CD and DVD player so, if you do want to watch a movie you can pop it right in there underneath that you have this nice kind of pseudo brick surround here this nice fake brick that way it's nice and lightweight you don't want real brick in here be too heavy, but it definitely gives it a really nice look and you have the fireplace right in the center which is all electric. So, the fireplace is great because it looks really nice and, if you don't have to pay for electric at your campsite that is essentially free heat then, if you move forward a little bit more you move into the kitchen beautiful kitchen here in the third er LSS you see right here you have the solid surface countertops to kind of have a little flack in there kind of like a sparkle almost just a great looking countertop then you have the matching sink top covers when we remove those you'll see the double bowl under mount stainless steel sink you can see they're almost you know like zero radius right down here in the corners which is really nice too because that we are able to utilize this whole bowl it's not a rounded bottom where everything comes to the center. So, it is a very usable thing kind of a farmhouse sink you know again following along that residential trend high rise faucet as well is a pull out faucet to make washing and rinsing dishes a heck of a lot easier and then you have the light fixture right up top the light switches right here built into the island which is nice because that way it makes it easy to turn on and off now the cool thing about this.
Island right here on the side you have the handle this opens up opens up some nice extra space there you can put canned goods chips you know s'more fixings whatever you want right in there do electrical outlet to plug anything else blender toaster whatever you want to plug in there then right underneath you have plenty of room under the sink for both your cleaning chemicals as well as a trash can they're right over across the way here back into the slide nice big pantry in here again like. I said this is something you see a lot in 5th wheels, but this floorplan you just don't see a travel trailer so. I'm really glad that they did this right here your microwave up top of course you have LED light right there underneath over here to the side some additional storage space your fully functional hood with the light and fan here again you know you can use this for prep space, if you want.
I would probably put my coffeemaker right over here you see that they have the GFI plug there as well and then fold up you know this is counter sunk this cooktop is sunk down that way this is a flush mount cover on here which is nice again. So, you can use all this prep space, if you want, but that of course just folds up just like that to reveal your three burner cooktop with the oven right here underneath then take a look at the size of these drawers. So, you have a really nice drawer here perfect for silverware nice and big then look at the depth of these two underneath really deep drawers here which are great for pots and pans and then same thing you have another big drawer right here underneath the oven so, if you're looking for a camper with lots of kitchen storage space this is definitely one you want to take a look at right over here is the fridge freezer combo you can see you have good space in there and it is mounted a little bit lower which is actually a kind of a nice break a lot of times you know the refrigerators are really high and, if you're a shorter person it can be pretty tough to get in the freezer so.
I do like them all to this one a little bit lower this also does run off both electric and propane with automatic switch over you also see on the ceiling right here nice big skylight less than a ton of natural light ducted AC right over here now rounding out the kitchen right here you have this nice hot you can see it has wine holders right there a nice decorative touch wine rack rather. I guess. I should call it some additional storage on the side here a little bit up top and then some behind this decorative glass here as well again electrical outlet USB port you'll see that throughout the you know same beautiful countertops here and then again another nice big deep drawer you'll notice the bathroom does have two entrances and exits one into the main living area the other one here into the bedroom main living area has a standard beautiful door you're used to with Winnebago framed out in wood and again you know it just opens and closes extremely smoothly better than any other RV.
I've been in then into the bedroom you have a nice slider here for obvious space reasons right down here in the corner is your foot flush lover toilet is porcelain. So, a lot easier to clean to take a look over at the vanity here you have this beautiful stainless steel bowl you know Winnebago puts in nice stuff seamless countertop right here a little bit of storage off to the side a little bit of additional storage right here underneath the sink you have a GFI plug here in the bathroom as well make sure you don't electrocute yourself hand towel ring right there mirrored medicine cabinet you can see that a nice vanity light up top there in addition to the LED lights on the ceiling also on the ceiling is you have an AC duct and you have a vent there to help moisture quickly escape you have a neo angle shower here in the corner you'll see the nice doors. I do like when manufacturers put these doors on because the way they open and close magnetics shuts here magnetic field air that shuts, but the doors themselves the way they open when you're done showering all the water just washes right down into the shower pan rather than getting all over your floor travel lock on here too to make sure your doors don't open during travel you'll see you have a couple of shelves there as well as the hand wand and then up top again is your skylight let the natural light and also gives you additional head space.
I'll go ahead and show you how about six-foot just to show you you know this is a nice polish travel trailer so. I have plenty of room up here. I have a couple inches up above my head without even going into the skylight.
So, you know, if you're six four six five you're still able to shower in here then right over here you'll see the big linen closet which again you know. I love and manufacturers are able to do this too you have towels you have other bathroom accessories this is where they would go you'll notice that the bedroom and the thirty RL SS is nice and open you have a big queen bed here which is in a slide out that way you can pull easily walk around the bed as. I mentioned earlier the bed lifts up for storage you have the struts on here and as you'll see you have your two foldable chairs store right underneath there.
So, you take a look at the front the big wardrobe here again something you'll commonly see in fifth wheels, but not very often in travel trailers, but you have this nice deep wardrobe here shelf all along the top and then right underneath you will see you have a hanging rod. So, a big wardrobe space it's haunted space to hang all of your clothes you have the glass fronts on here to gives it a very nice appeal right down at the bottom one more time into electrical outlet and USB port there and as. I showed you when we were outside this actually opens up right into that pass-through compartments this allows you to easily get in there you have to make a quick exit or something.
I guess, but uh you know for anything that's in that path to do it the easy way to get to it and then right here this is what. I'm showing you when we were on the camp side there this is that drop-down shelf so, if you have toilet items you want to go the store in here you want to get to them you can do that or you can just drop this shelf right down just like. So, and now this becomes usable space here from the inside to take a look right over here you have a nice chest of drawers good little dresser there you know very usable drawers too you can see they are fairly deep which is great a window here to look out at your campsite let that natural light in then right up top you have TV connections while we take a look up top a couple more things LED lights of course ducted AC speakers however your vent right here is already pre-wired for a second AC so, if you do want another one in here it is easy to have that installed, but alright folks that pretty much wraps it up again to the 2018 Winnebago mini +30 RL SS this one has the Platinum exterior with the cobblestone interior, if you're interested in this RV and you would like price and availability.
