Our mild Mid-Atlantic’s fall proved perfect for family outings in our 2014 Winnebago Minnie Winnie Premium RV. This Class-C motorhome, built on a Ford E-450 Van Chassis, is perfect for long weekend gatherings as it accommodates up to eight.
While Class-C motorhomes are much less expensive than Class-A models, you do get what you pay for. We expected a step down in luxury, but we also thought build quality, or at least dealer prep, suffered. Fortunately materials are still plenty durable.
Our 33-footer had twin power slide outs. They allow for a lot of room inside of course, but there’s still plenty when they’re retracted as well. Storage space rates high, especially the huge compartment in the driver’s side rear.
The Minnie Winnie managed hills easily. But, at even part throttle, you really hear the 6.8-liter Ford V-10 working away. Fuel economy at 6.4 miles per gallon after over 2,000 miles was deemed OK but not stellar. Still, this is more of a workhorse RV than an empty-nester interstate cruiser.
Focus a bit more on fit and finish and this Minnie Winnie would be a total winner for us.
