Those of us with "flushies" can use them in the freezing temps too. A jug of water to flush and some antifreeze in the tank to keep the valve from freezing. No big deal.

Does anyone know if the frame is steel or ALU? I read it was Galvanized but must have overlooked the material, thanks in advance.
Post#130 I mentioned "Winter use" as a positive note. I had a cassette in my T@da and used it year round.

Your valve, water and contents will freeze in a conventional setup unless you have heat pads on the black tank and valves. The cassette will not, I've used the cassette in single digits without any issues. There are no exposed drain lines. Try dumping your black when it is 5 degrees outside. With the cassette you empty in a heated restroom toilet. With a cassette you fill the supply with antifreeze, I've used windshield antifreeze. The trailer heat keeps the bathroom and the toilet warm.

Yes, Ken. The trailer is Galvanized Steel.

Or just stay in south Texas, southern California or Florida when the weather gets cold everywhere else!! That will solve most problems with freezing pipes. That's my plan!

I'm just waiting for the right time.

Not true. The black tank is inside the trailer in most of the trailers. The toilet sits on top of it. And the antifreeze takes care of the valves. Granted I haven't camped in 5 degree weather, but have camped when it's below freezing. I don't hookup to water and keep the trailer "winterized." The jug of water to flush the toilet sits in the bathroom. Hasn't frozen yet!

Ok, I'm sorry to interrupt this stimulating conversation about toilets but I have a real problem.
Wake Up Little Susie has been stuck in my head for well over a week now. I've tried everything I can think of including a failed attempt to replace it with I've Got a Brand New Pair of Roller Skates...which usually works.

Help!!

Peter, try "it's a small world after all." That tune should knock everything else out of your head.

Melissa, when you get your new trailer, please track your gas mileage and speed, and let us know what you get. I'm especially interested to see what this thing can do aerodynamically as far as fuel savings. I sort of wish Nicholas had tapered the back instead of (or in addition to) the front, as the teardrop rear slope seems to be very efficient... Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion car comes to mind.

Mike, you stole my thunder. What I have learned from aerodynamics research is that rounding the front but leaving the back flat nets only a small improvement . Rounding only the back instead provides a several-fold gain. Tapering the back but not too quickly (ala T@B et al) is the best. Boats that glide well take wisdom from fish tails (not tales).

Nicholas, turn the shell 180 on the trailer and test pull that with a ScanGauge. Seriously!

Perhaps that was the thinking with the design of the Oxygen. A 20 foot all molded trailer that's tapered front AND back.

Mike and KamperBob,
Funny enough, the original design for the LiL Snoozy was a tear drop. We reversed it early on because, though it works very well on the smaller T@B's, with the larger size of the Snoozy, there simply wasn't enough "wiggle" room for floor plan changes. The flatter rear section allows for the rear door, and the rear door allows us a tremendous amount of space.

My vote would be to name your TT: DELTA FLYER

FSD: Starfleet Shuttlecraft - Delta Flyer

The original Delta Flyer was lost in battle, so you may want to consider: "DELTA FLYER II" Delta Flyer II - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki
Which was designed with increased comfort in mind.

Looking further at the pictures, the axle seems far back on the unit. What is the tongue weight?

What are the criterion for getting listed on the home page as a mfg'r?

We now have Lil Snoozy as well as ParkLIner.
