I purchased a new Minnie Winnie 331K in 2013. I too thought that Winnebago was a better product, as this was my second RV. I had several issues with the front cap leaking during hard rains.
Two trips to my dealer were of no use. Calls to Winnebago were of no use either. I finally purchased RV-Plex sealant from Camping World and sealed ever seam on the entire coach, a real job but solved my problem.
I hate to gripe about companies, but Winnebago really disappointed me with this unit. I don't believe I will purchase another Winnebago product. Jayco seems to be a good company and I would think they are as good as Winnebago.


Do you have a fiberglass front cap? Jayco is also high on my list right now. We are still trying to narrow down floor plans first.

The seamless B+ cap on our rig has has never given us trouble. Not only seamless, but it resonates so much less compared to a typical class C with an frontal over-hang. 10 years and 36,000 miles later, the few seams located rearward show no signs of stress.

If you don't need the big frontal portion, I would avoid it. If you must have it, try to get one that is seamless like the Winnebago View/Navion.
