Camp Off-Grid for Up to 5 Days in the Winnebago Micro Minnie FLX
New Minnie comes with thoughtful upgrades that conserve power and water.
Taking feedback from customers using its Micro Minnie towable RV, Winnebago has announced an upgraded model designed for better off-grid camping. The new Micro Minnie FLX (pronounced “flex”) receives several significant upgrades that enhance its boondocking capabilities.
Among the more notable upgrades to the FLX is the addition of a Truma Vario heating system, a Truma Aventa air conditioner, and the tankless Truma AquaGo hot water heater. All three units are quieter and more energy-efficient than those currently found in the Micro Minnie, directly translating to much better battery life. Each of these systems can also be controlled from a single panel located on the wall of the RV.
In an effort to further extend battery life, the FLX also comes with two roof-mounted solar panels. Working in conjunction with one another, those solar cells are capable of generating 380 watts of power. And since the towable is equipped with a 3000-watt Xantrex inverter, it should be able to power a wide range of appliances and devices.
With these upgrades, Winnebago says that the FLX is capable of comfortably functioning off-grid for up to five days at a time. That number is reached thanks in part to the inclusion of a Showermiser system, which can route water used while waiting for the shower to warm up back to the freshwater tank. This can conserve a substantial amount of water when used properly.
Available in four floor plans, the Micro Minnie FLX is an off-grid ready towable that will definitely appeal to boondockers. To find out more, visit winnebago.com, where you can download a brochure and request a quote.
