The Winnebago Minnie packs maximum features into an easy-to-pull lightweight camper. This is a front living room, rear bedroom model with a single slide. This trailer is a great home-away-from-home.
A full 8′ wide box provides ample living space with the power slide out dinette area to add room and converts to another sleeping space. Near the dinette is a large sofa with a huge storage area underneath it, accessible from a large, exterior padded door. Features of the 2500FL include a private bedroom with a queen-size bed, extra large windows in the bedroom with bed walk-around space, spacious galley, hallway closet and pantry. The space is a bit tight here in the hallway, but this is a travel trailer, and space will be more limited.
This model’s kitchen features full-extension drawers, covered sink and 2-burner stove, double bowl stainless steel sink, a 2-way refrigerator/freezer, microwave and propane oven. Nearby is a pantry and closet combination cabinet to store all your cooking needs.
The bathroom is compact full bathroom. It has a stainless steel sink with countertop, dual vanity glass doors, shower door with a creative convex accordion door to maximize space in the shower, a ceiling vent and foot flush toilet. The bathroom does get dark at night and could use extra light.
The bedroom is pretty roomy with a queen sized bed and a clear walkway around the bed, making changing sheets and getting on and off, a much easier task. This is a memory foam mattress which can be lifted, assisted by gas-prop lifts, for more storage space underneath. Night-table tops on both sides, and storage all around the bed for extra bedding and clothes make this a highly functional as well as pleasing space.
Full linoleum throughout makes the camper easy to clean and the light-color interior with 6 fabric collections are a welcome change from typical dark interior finishes. There are 2 entrance doors (one in the bedroom), a large handled one entering the living area, adds to easy access and egress. The LED lighting from the awning is bright, but there is no ambient “porch” light and an addition of this would be welcomed when coming back to your trailer at night.
The 2017 Minnie’s Chassis has a NXG frame; this chassis from BAL RV Products Group is said to be stronger and lighter than comparable fully welded steel frames. A 5″ A-frame with battery rack, 2,000 lb. front jack, double 7″ entry steps, 3,500 lb. axles, 14″ nitro-filled radial tires, 4-wheel electric drum brake, and a 4″ square bumper with end caps for sewer hose storage.

Although “optional” and “mandatory” have opposite meanings in the real world, here these packages aren’t options at all but standard features. A long list of à-la-carte options means the Minnie can be outfitted in just about any way the purchaser desires.
