I too am interested in the Winnebago Micro Mini series with a preference for the 2108 DS model. In reading through the thread of responses on Subaru Ascent Actual Towing Examples, several people are towing with dry weights in the mid 4000lbs which contradicts the notion of keeping the total weight at a safe margin below 5000 spec for the Ascent Premium/Touring. The 2108 DS has a dry weight spec of 4140 lbs and a hitch rate of 410lbs. Based on other people's experience, is it possible to keep the total weight below 5,000? The 2106FBS is 300lbs lighter on the dry weight and 60lbs lighter on the hitch rate but my preference is the 2108 model.
