REVIEW: Lightweight Winnebago Hike 100 FLX tiny toy hauler

Winnebago’s Hike 100 FLX tiny toy hauler packs a whole lot into a tiny, lightweight package. This is a great small RV for active RVers like bikers, hikers, kayakers, etc.

Join the team from We’re the Russos in the video below to take a full interior and exterior tour of this small toy hauler travel trailer.

Full disclosure, the video is sponsored by Truma, which makes sense as Winnebago uses top-of-the-line Truma products in this trailer.

One of the unique features of this rig that really caught my eye was its metal exo-skeleton that allows you to hang and mount various accessories from it.

Look at everything they packed into the tiny Winnebago Hike!

I think this is fabulous. Better, so much better than a tent, my opinion! For all those people who enjoy getting out for their special few days this would be a lovely clean way (the saying – leave the area cleaner than when you arrived applies here & easy to do). All the comforts and mostly private to enjoy adventures: fishing, hiking, kayaking, State & National Parks – small compact comfortable. If necessary: visiting friends to stay overnight with the Exception the outdoor not private Shower is nice idea. Sponge Bath works indoors. Yes this is acceptable.

Interesting. I saw one on the road yesterday. It looks narrow so it stands out. There are things I like and things that would be deal breakers. But I am old now. A younger me could have bought into it better. What I really love is the exoskeleton. What a great idea even if you just use it to attach things after you park. And it looks like you could haul your bicycle on the side. For a small camper Iike the cassette toilet. If you carried an extra cassette, you could camp a long time before you found a place to empty them. I can see using this for long weekends off grid. I like the concept of keeping the kitchen out of the camper. I almost never use the stove inside anyway.
What I don’t like the most is the single axle. I feel more comfortable with 2. I don’t like that the bed doesn’t come down lower for sleeping. These old bones would have a hard time in the middle of the night. I don’t like the awning. There must be a better way than having tent poles in the way all the time.
