Researching Minnie 1708 to purchase new in 2021

Hello! Iím Allison. I had a tent trailer for many years but as Iím retiring (aka ďoldĒ) I am upgrading. The Winnebago Minnie 1708FB checks all the boxes. Iím still doing more research before I place my order. I want to do some cold weather trips. What else should I keep in mind to have included before I order?

I have a Toyota Tacoma V6 with tow package but it is a manual transmission. Iím hoping that will work as I live in the Colorado high country (near Rocky Mountain National Park). I frequently travel over mountain passes.

Iím looking forward to learning more through the forums!

Good luck on your new trailer and retirement. You'll get lot's of opinions pro and con on towing with the Tacoma. IMHO, it will be far less than ideal, especially in the Rockies.

Here's a recent thread on towing the 1706/1708, and the Tacoma is mentioned a few times.

What tow vehicle do you have for your Micro Minnie 1706FB/1708FB?
