Ball Mount Recommendation for Towing a Winnebago Micro Minnie 2106DS


I am about to purchase a Winnebago Micro Minnie 2106DS. I think I may need to purchase a new shank for my hitch. I need the coupler height of the trailer when its level, and I cant find it anywhere. Do you have that information?


Expert Reply:

Since coupler height isn't a common measurement that is given by trailer manufacturers I don't have that information readily available but I do believe that I can still help out some.

If your Winnebago Micro Minnie 2106DS weighs less than half of the curb weight of your tow vehicle then you can you an adjustable ball mount like the B&W Tow & Stow # BWTS10037B (5" Drop/5-1/2" Rise) or # BWTS10040B (7" Drop/7-1/2" Rise). These not only provide you with a variety of height options but they also give you 2" and 2-516" hitch balls.

If your Winnebago Micro Minnie 2106DS weighs more than half the curb weight of your tow vehicle then you need to use a weight distribution (WD) system to help keep your vehicle from sagging and to add sway control to your towing setup. The current 2106DS models have a GVWR of 7,000 lbs so if this matches your model I recommend using the Reese Steadi-Flex # RP66560 for your application. This comes with a shank that has a 4" max drop and an 8-3/4" max rise which should fit your towing situation. The only other thing you need for this setup is the 2" Hitch Ball # A-90 or the 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # 19286.

I have attached some review videos for you to check out.
