“I love the Minnie Winnie name and it’s great to see it back on a product that looks great, even better than I expected at this price point,” said Steve Jung of Colerain RV in Cincinnati, Ohio. “Winnebago Industries is right on target with the product and the price.”
“Everything about the Minnie Winnie says Winnebago quality with a great looking product with a lot of features for the price,” said Steve Flagg of Flagg RV in North Smithfield, R.I. “In fact, I just picked up a 2011 used Class C at auction for the same price the Minnie Winnie comes in at brand new. As an Itasca dealer, I’m looking forward to getting the new Spirit on our lot.”
