"For weekend campers who don't want to purchase a special tow vehicle"

The Capri Micro is no longer in the Coachmen new trailer list

Coachmen RV say that their Capri Micro is intended for campers who want to use a traditional vehicle for those weekend getaways but don't want to forgo the features found in larger trailers.

Available in three innovative floorplans with exterior box lengths ranging from 13 feet to 17 feet, the Capri Micro features base weights starting under 3,000 lbs. "The Capri Micro is the perfect trailer for weekend campers who don't want to purchase a special tow vehicle. Many mini-vans can tow the smaller Capri (the 135 RE), and small SUVs and light pickups are sufficient to tow the other two models," said Kevin McMahon, product and sales manager for Coachmen's laminated lightweight towables. "A young couple or snowbirds who want something they can tow with their traditional vehicle find Capri Micros very appealing."

Adding to Capri Micro's appeal is its affordable price. The MSRP on this trailer ranges from $12,700 to $13,995 (2008).

The trailer is eight feet wide while most of the competition is only seven or seven and a half feet in width. The interior height is 79 inches compared with 76 for most of the competition. "We planned Capri Micro to be very roomy while at the same time it is small and easy to tow," said McMahon. "We have also used a lot of oversized windows, to add to the spacious feel of this coach."

"We have the only 15-foot floorplan with an actual double bed and sofa combination," said McMahon. The larger 179 QB has a queen bed. The smallest Capri, the 135 RE, sleeps three, while the other two models sleep four comfortably.

At 36 gallons, Capri Micro has the largest fresh water capacity in its class. Capri Micro also stands out because it has a "dry bath" with the toilet separated from the shower unit. Many ultralites in this class use a wet bath in which the toilet is included in the shower stall
