hi folks. I mean a baker the product specialist here at American RV and Grand Rapids Michigan and today.
I'm here to tell you all about the 2018 Winnebago mini 2250 des this particular floorplan is in the cobblestone interior this is a great couples coach. I really like this setup it's nice open floor plan just gives you a lot of flexibility let's start off right in the back here as soon as you come in take a look at this you have awesome wardrobe space there so, if you want to use this as a coat closet naturally it's right next to the door or, if you plan on spending a lot of time in here maybe you're living out of it and. So, you need some extra storage to hang your no normal clothes you can certainly use it for that as well then.
I underneath you have big storage again maybe you want to put shoes in there and on you know whatever else you need to use the storage for it is a very large space down there right here's the bathroom let's take a quick look one of the things before we enter that. I'd love to talk about on Winnebago towable products are the doors you'll see they're actually framed out in wood instead of plastic and they're true they're square they work every time when you shut it actually shuts it doesn't wiggle around won't pop back open on you like a lot of manufacturers out there. I know it seems silly to brag about a door, but.
I'm telling you when you're out there shopping compared to Winnebago to some of the others and you'll quickly see what. I mean right here on the door itself you also have a robe hook there, if we step in you take a look right down in the corner there you see the foot flush lever toilet plenty of room all the way around then right over here you have the Neo angle shower. I like the doors in here because they're in a roller track.
So, that way when you're done showering all the water just goes right down the door into the shower pan rather than all over the floor like your standard swing open glass door you also see you have some shelving in there a hand wand and a skylight up top just to give you an idea for height. I'm 6 foot and you can see. I can stand underneath the ceiling, but, if you're you know a little bit taller 6 3 something like that you can stand underneath this skylight it will give you that additional Headroom there over to the side you see the mirrored medicine cabinet here and then right down below you have your sink top nice stainless steel bowl electrical outlet for anything you need to plug in and then some additional storage right here underneath right across the way here is the Dometic fridge freezer combo when.
I open this guy up you'll see you have lots of space in here nice cutout for some taller items this unit does run off both propane and electric it also has automatic switch over right on the wall you'll see you have your Dometic thermostat that will run both your ducted AC as well as your ducted heat and then right down below there you'll see there's an electrical outlet. So, that way, if you're sitting in your nice big u dinette here you need to plug in a laptop or tablet something like that you have a place to do it speaking of the nice big new dinette take a look at that that is what is in our slide-out this is great for entertaining, if you have guests over you know friends family whatever it may be you can sit around the table here enjoy a meal together play games together not just again makes for great entertainment value also, if you do have any guests that want to stay the night the table does drop down into a bed you simply remove the legs and the flanges here in the floor as well as the flanges in the table and then this table will sit along the rails take the cushions from the back put it on top and you now have a bed that will easily sleep two adults you also see you have a light right here up top turn that on. So, you can take a look nice and bright and then you have windows all the way around those windows obviously let in some natural light as well as help with cross ventilation another thing that's cool the seats right here are nice leather wrap material so, if you have like you know kids or grandkids understand they're kind of sloppy eaters it's really easy to clean up, if they spill on the seat here then across the other side you have a big beautiful kitchen take a look at the size of the countertop space, if you're looking for a couple's coach that's open and has a ton of counter space this is definitely one you want to think about a lot of people automatically think about a rear kitchen, but that's not necessarily the case as you can see this has a much larger kitchen area than a lot of your rear kitchen campers out there.
So, you have the prep space here you have the three burner cooktop with a cover. So, you do get to utilize this as space here when. I peel this back you can see the nice three burner cooktop it is an Atwood unit the front one there is high output and then underneath you have an oven as far as storage.
I'll open this up for you can see you have great storage down there and then as we move forward a little bit here again more storage there as well as some additional storage under the sink. So, at honest storage all the way throughout here and then right on the end you have a bank of three full extension ball bearing drawers right up above is your double bowl faucet it's a double equal bowl they're stainless steel high rise faucet makes it nice and easy to wash and rinse dishes you also see it they kind of have a bar right here. I think this is really cool too a really nice idea especially in this floorplan.
So, kind of the bar top, if you look on the back side you can see you have plenty of space here for for your bar stool. So, basically you can just pull your bar stools up right here you can sit here again you know, if you have gas it's great for entertaining, if you want to eat your meal here rather than the table you can do that you have a great shot to the TV here as well. So, the TV it is on a swing arm out so, if you want to watch it in bed you can swing it out and around otherwise you can watch it here at the bar you have a great shot from the u-shaped dinette just an excellent layout you also see you have a little bit of storage above the TV there and then right over here is the multimedia Center that is your radio and CD player it's also a DVD player is already pre wired to the TV all.
I have to do is throw a movie in and you are good to go directly underneath that you see an LED light to help brighten up the kitchen then right here you have a dual USB port as well as a standard electrical outlet. So, that way, if you need a place to plug you know and a coffee maker toaster something like that you can do it there or there's another one hiding out right over here. So, a couple different electrical outlets giving you a couple different options as far as storage on either side of the microwave here you have a little bit of storage you can see that one there and then more storage right over there then as.
I said directly in between is your microwave here and then a fully functional hood with a light and fan. So, as. I mentioned you see that is a nice open floor plan and it flows right from your living space into the bedroom here, if you do have additional gas you have the curtain here you can close off for privacy, but the idea is the majority of the time it'll just be the two of you and.
So, you can enjoy the open feeling residential 60 by 80 queen-size bed, if you're sick of having short queens, if you're a taller person when your feet hang off not a worry in here because again it is the full 80 inch length you'll see right over here these are your two propane tanks when the manufacturer ships and this is how they ship them this one does have the upgraded 30 pound tanks rather than the 20 so, if you plan on you know camping for an extended period of time having the bigger tanks is really nice also right underneath the bed you have excellent storage you can see your propane tank cover right there, but look how nice and easy this lifts up you have two struts and because the way they've the way they've placed them it actually lifts the bed really nice and high a lot of times the bed only comes up to about here and it's a little tricky to get in there especially, if you're older, but you know in this camper it lifts it up real nice and high and you can easily grab anything that you store underneath there on both sides of the bed you have some wardrobe space. I'll open this up for you. So, you can see you have a hanging rod there you'll have that on both sides and then underneath you have like a nice little nightstand right here you'll also see you have an electrical outlet on both sides and a dual USB port their storage going across the top as well as some additional LED lights you can see have a reading light here another one there in the ceiling then you also have a vent so, if you don't want to run the ducted AC you can open up your windows and get a nice cross-ventilation coming through here now that we've seen the beautiful inside let's take a look at some of the outside features of the Winnebago 2250 d/s starting right up front this unit is equipped with a power tongue jack this makes it nice and easy to hook up or disconnect from your tow vehicle simply flip the switch to raise or lower the tongue the switch on either side right here controls the light in case you need some added visibility at night right here is where your 230 pound propane tanks will go as.
I mentioned we just got this in from the manufacturer and. So, that's why they're still inside, but they will be hooked up right here behind that you have rails for your battery and then coming up the front is black diamond plating which helps protect the front end from some of the rocks and debris that may get thrown up by your tow vehicle coming around to the side well take a look at the pass-through storage here you'll see how nice and big and open this is you'll also notice on the far side you have a battery disconnect that's really handy rather than having to constantly get into your battery box and unhook it when you're done camping you can just flip that switch and it will kill all power to the coach right outside of that you have TV hookups electrical outlet right here cable outlet right there obviously you can use that electrical outlet for anything you want, but, if you do want TV that's why they put it there the backer for the TV is right here. So, this is where you'd install that mount gives you plenty of space and still being able to avoid the awning arm here and then your cable.
So, you would just dry or drop right there underneath large power awning take a look at that it pretty much spans the entire length of the RV just touch a, button to have that roll out same thing to have it go right back in then it also has an LED light strip there in case you want some light at night you'll also notice the two outside speakers those are connected to that multimedia Center inside, but again that unit is bluetooth capable so, if you want to sit out here underneath your awning you can use your phone or your tablet to be able to control that via bluetooth let's take a quick tour take a quick second here and talk about the construction Winnebago tools are one of my favorite when it comes to the sidewalls they are absolutely gorgeous top-notch sidewall here and it starts again with the construction most year manufacturers especially in this travel trailer class what they normally do is they use a product which is called lamb alocs which essentially is a fiberglass on a big long roll and then they will use like a luan backer in order to help give it some stiffness what Winnebago does is they actually use 80/60 fiberglass there's a big fiberglass sheet. So, this can't be rolled out it comes in a solid sheet. So, it has a lot of rigidity already then on top of that they put a true pour gel coat exterior which is one of the best you can have it's absolutely gorgeous that's why you don't see the fibers when you look in here and you can actually see a reflection and it's very similar process to how they make a bolt hole, if you know a thing or two about boats you know you can buff them and they will stay beautiful and this is the exact same way you can keep this beauty for the life the RV and.
I'm telling you when you're out there shopping take a look at the Winnebago sidewall you're see your reflection go to the one right next to it and chances are you probably will not right down here this is your gravity water fill. So, you know, if you need to fill it up you don't have pressure you can put it right in there it goes into your tank right down underneath take a quick look at the wheels here aluminum alloy wheels nine of those look awesome, but they also won't rust on you they help prevent corrosion and you have nitrogen filled tires that which will help hold the tire pressures for a longer period of time like any RV. I do recommend before every trip to make sure that you do check your tire pressures just.
So, you make sure that you're towing your travel trailers safely making right back a little bit further here this is the entrance to the RV three foldable steps with the foldable easy grab handle this gives you excellent control when entering or exiting the RV come around to the back side with me real quick you'll see right here you do have the rear mounted ladder this lets you get up onto the roof of the RV it is a fully walkable roof kind of like your tires. I do recommend you know making sure you do some inspections on your roof you'll probably want to get up there at least once or twice a year just for preventative maintenance right here on the back mounted to the bumper is your spare tire with a cover now. I does this represent your beautiful Winnebago RV more importantly it helps protect your tire from some of the elements.
So, that way, if you ever do have to use it which hopefully you never do, but, if you do it's great peace of mind knowing that it's right back here with you. So, come around into the off door side a couple quick things over here 30 amp detachable power cord right there your terminations are right down below you can see the termination here your great and black valve actually tuck them way underneath on the Winnebago you can see them right there and. So, you'll obviously want to you know drill when you do drain those make sure you pull your black first then your gray right up above you have the black tank flush this is nice rather than having to drag a hose through a whole RV to wash out your black tank when you're done camping just hook it up right there that black tank has sprayers built in and it will wash it out for you then next to that this is your city water fill pretty self-explanatory plug it in good to go right above that outside shower with hot and cold water access and then you have satellite and cable hookups right over here also in front of our slide toward the nose you do have zamp solar prep so, if you want solar on this RV all.
I have to do is buy the portable zant panels plug them in and it will start to trickle charge your battery alright folks that wraps it up again this is the 2018 Winnebago mini 2250 DS this one has the platinum exterior with the cobblestone interior thanks again for watching. I'm. Ian Baker and.
I can't wait to see you on the road to freedom you.
