Micro-Lite Trailer Manufacturing LLC, Elkhart, Ind., has introduced the all-aluminum 17-foot Vymeron light-weight travel trailer series. “It’s meant to be a cabin on wheels,” said President Chuck Ornduff Jr. “It’s easy to maintain, easy to tow and easy to afford.” The 6 1/2-foot wide Vymeron, with a 1,250-pound dry weight, is available in three traditional and two SURV floorplans. The Vymeron Semi sports a small living area with bunk bed, a kitchen and an open 5-foot 8-inch front platform. An appliance package that includes a refrigerator, air conditioning, heater and microwave adds 550 pounds to the unit. Ornduff, whose company also manufactures the Wazat travel trailer, Mo-Jo cargo trailer and Moto-Mate motorcycle trailer, said that size and weight will become increasingly important to consumers. “People are going to come around to this type of trailer,” Ornduff said. “It is easily towable by a mid-sized V-6 SUV.” MSRP: under $10,000, depending on freight.
