With its all-new Apex Nano, Coachmen, a division of Forest River, is targeting families and couples looking for lightweight travel trailers that can be towed with SUVs and minivans. The 7-foot 6-inch-wide lightweight trailers, consisting of four models in both slide and nonslide versions, are claimed to weigh as little as 2,604 pounds.
Construction features include welded aluminum framing, vacuum-bond laminated fiberglass side walls and composites designed for less weight. Inside, the trailer has double-bowl sinks and crowned 6-foot 6-inch ceilings. The Nano is said to sleep four to six people, with generously sized dinettes that fold down to make into beds; three of the models also have queen beds. Spacious interior cabinets and large exterior compartments provide ample storage.
Coachmen claims that the Nano has some of the largest payload capacities in the single-axle market, with cargo ratings up to 1,200 pounds in the slide models. All Nano models have 30-gallon freshwater, gray- and black-water tanks.
The Apex Nano ranges from 20 feet 9 inches to 22 feet 4 inches, and has an MSRP starting at $17,000.
