The Micro Minnie list of new interior features is extensive: the Dream dinette table and bracket, pocket-style doors for the bath- room to improve ease of entry/exit, a new Murphy bed design with flush fold-up and storage drawers in the base. Most models also will offer an option for a pull-out sleeper sofa to replace the old Jacknife-style or standard dinette. "This is a significant feature for the Micro Minnie and one that consumers have been asking for. Until a recent design change by one of our furniture partners, this was not able to be done before," says Eberlein. The Micro also has a number of new appliance changes. Stan- dard will be Dometic's 10.3 12-volt refrigerator; an option will be an 8-cubic-foot gas/electric type. Other features include a 1.1-cubic-foot convection microwave and Suburban two- or three-burner cooktop stoves and upgraded faucet w/pulldown sprayer and larger sink complete the kitchen updates. There also has been an update to hardware and faucets for the bathroom sink, shower and exterior kitchens. Win- nebago also will be introducing Coleman-Mach products on all brands this fall. For its part, the Micro will come standard with 13.5K-BTU Quiet Series A/C and offers an optional 15K-BTU Quiet Series. The Minnie trailer, a traditional 8-foot-wide laminated trailer, has many of the same styling changes as the Micro with new décor and interior, including a full overlay cabinet design throughout. Appliance and furniture updates are also the same. The more significant change is the overall interior presence of the trailer with an increase of interior height to more than 76 inches. However the exterior height will remain the same. The addition of low pro A/C keeps the trailer at 11 feet and maintains the flexibility for a transport to double haul to dealers. The Minnie will come standard with a second A/C prep and an optional second A/C will operate on 30 amps with an integrated EMS. Meanwhile, the Winnebago Voyage trailer and fifth wheel also will see all new interiors and enhancement to the front caps with partial paint feature. The focus for Voyage is new floorplans to complement the series overall lineup. For the fifth wheel, there will be five floorplans in the 2021 lineup, all built on the W-Series frame. Eberlein says the W Series has a best-in-class suspension plus the combination of a 7,000-pound axle, Road Armor equalizer and 16-inch G-rated tires. It also features a drop-frame design for more maximum pass-through storage. Floorplans for the Voyage FW start with the 3134RL. This model is just under 35 feet with a rear lounge. The second model is a 2932RL, also a rear lounge; however, the overall length is 32 feet and appeals more for those customers looking for high-end amenities in a more compact fifth wheel. At Winnebago's dealer meeting in March, the company intro- duced the 3436FL, offering a full-featured front living at 36 feet, pin to bumper. The RV sleeps six, has a U-shape kitchen for max- imum counter space and storage, and has a king bed option. The 3639BH and 3739RK will be in production this fall. GRAND DESIGN Grand Design first introduced travel trailers just two years ago – but has been quick to grow within the segment and build on its early successes for 2021. "We have a new travel trailer model coming, the 30G, that's really special," says Nate Goldenberg, general manager for the Solitude and Momentum brands. "It's wide open." The Momentum TT 30G is 34 feet, 11 inches in length, and has 20 feet, 8 inches of cargo space with a four-person dinette, two Euro chairs and a HappiJac dinette. "For people who have big families or camp with a lot of friends, it has a massive living area," Goldenberg says. "While it's not a huge floorplan, length-wise, for toy haulers, we're really excited about it because it has a private front bedroom, a double-entrance bath, and large windows on the camping side to really open it up." Momentum also is introducing a new floorplan for fifth wheels: the 395MS. "It's an updated version of a top-seller that features a new front end, remodeled bathroom and a completely redesigned kitchen and living area. The garage has also been expanded to 13 feet," Goldenberg says. Another popular floorplan is the 376THS, which is a 41-foot, PREVIEW 84 • RV PRO • September 2020 RV PRO ➤ NEW MODEL YEAR PREVIEW Rob Groover (above), product manager for Grand Design's Solitude fifth wheel, says new features will be rolled out in 2021 for the company's Solitude and Solitude S models, which includes new graphics outside and plenty of new amenities inside, including new countertops and flooring.
