We are considering making the move to the bigger t@b. We currently have an S max. My wife doesn't like the port holes and the weird storage around them on the interior. However, we have not seen a 400 in person, yet. Anyone have any insight?
@boo We bought ours for $26k so that's $7k more than the 320-S. Also that price was from 2 different dealers here in NC. They were both within $100 of each other. I guess it does come down to the price you are able to get them at.

After two years, I finally sold my T@B last month. I wanted to look at the 400, but nobody around here had it. I have been looking at tons of travel trailers in the past few months. I felt like I wouldn't find anything that would satisfy me every time I looked at those trailers. T@B's quality is way above anything I have looked at. Every time I open the cabinets of non-T@B trailers and press down the bottom part of it, I feel like it's going to break on the first trip. They only use really thin boards.As other members mentioned, NuCamp's customer service is really good. I don't think you can get that type of service from anywhere else.I just ordered me an Winnebago Micro Minnie 1706FB. It is 4ft longer and 1ft wider than T@B Outback I had, but it feels like it's three times larger inside. The cabinets are built way better than other manufactures. I know I am going to miss my T@B (it was my first travel trailer), but I think I made a right choice. I will need to wait for 2-3 months for it to be delivered.
Best of luck with your Whinnie. Be sure to stop back and tell us what you like and don't like about it.
"My wife doesn't like the port holes and the weird storage around them on the interior." --rhaspyhonkerI don't mind the portholes, but agree with your wife about those those storage cubbies" around them. I see them as wasted space you have to fish items out of as you can't even see back there -- poor use of space, IMO. Must be a "euro" design thing that's popular over in the EU but doesn't make practical sense here in the US market...needs rethinking/redesigning.Not sure about the similar "storage cubbies" on the bathroom wall, either, so would like to see them rethought, too.Finally, do not like the stereo's location way up high on the wall in a very awkward spot you have one knee on the bed to access -- or contort your body around the corner to access. THAT makes no sense, either.I DO like the 400's fold-down bathroom sink (looks much better and more practical/functional than the folding sink in the Winnebago Paseo 48P Class B I'm also looking at).OTHERWISE, the T@B 400 looks pretty good. :-)Hope it has room for 3 large solar panesl on the roof and 2 larger (lithium) house batteries!-- BR

Justin_in_Seattle said:JiroTX, we also took a look at the Winnebago Micro Minnie. However the GVWR of 5,500 lb scared us off, since my TV is only rated up to 3,500 lb, and we didn't want to accidentally overload the trailer.Overall the Micro Minnie like a solid choice, if your TV can handle it. We went with the T@B 400 in the end. Arrives next month.
You might want to go to the CAT scale with all the passengers/cargo/full tank of gas and see how much your vehicle weighs and subtract that from GVWR of your TV (the tongue weight cannot go above this number).
