The Spyder product line will consist of four travel trailer and two fifth wheel floor plans. The absence of wheel wells allows for more compact vehicle storage and its overhead cabinet design extends to the ceiling.

Micro Minnie Fifth Wheel: Capitalizing on the success and industry leading growth of the seven-foot wide, Micro Minnie trailer, Winnebago Towables is extending the concept into the fifth wheel market with the introduction of the Micro Minnie fifth wheel.

“While the industry promotes 7,000, 8,000, and even 9,000 pound fifth wheels as half-ton towable, the new Micro Minnie fifth wheel in the 5,000 pound category will not only be best in class, but also work with the rapidly growing midsize truck category,” said Adam Christoffersen, Product Manager.

The Micro Minnie fifth wheel is equipped with upgraded features generally found in top-notch towables. A flush mount cooktop with glass cover, solid surface countertops, stainless steel sink, true gel coat fiberglass sidewalls, and plenty of large windows add to the allure of the compact fifth wheel.
