A further concern I have is the rear door and airconditioner coils getting really crusty in dirty driving conditions.
Too bad they didn't make the beds along the side walls ala Little Joe. We found when sleeping one against the wall the other not, that the one against the wall disturbs the front one when getting up for potty break, etc, and the rear one is more subject to claustrophobia especially with that ceiling coming down like that.


Glad to see a prototype. I was somewhat concerned there at first.

I do like the large screen door, the aerodynamic shape, the outrigger wheels.

I see no problem with the front bed arrangement, it is the most efficient use of space. The shape will help with gas, otherwise you have the box like straight walls in conventional trailers. Truck campers have for decades dealt with a similar sleeping arrangements. Windows on either end or a skylight helps with light. I see no problem disturbing another one that exists different than that at home. Let's not forget, it is a lot better than sleeping on the ground!!

There are floor plans for 2 single beds. Here Mr.Smoak mentions it.

"Floor Plan LS2B:
I am sure this is the floor plan you have been waiting for. All of the
LiL Snoozys will use the same kitchen and bathroom/shower, the difference is in the living and sleeping areas. For this model we have reduced the length of the entertainment center and seating area in favor of two single beds running longways with a narrow isle between them. We are able to retain the same plush swivel rockers as the LS2."

With the door being the size it is and the straight in entry, I would think it could be be fairly easy swapping out bunks, sofa, dinette modules, etc., because they are "built in" rather than part of the molding process. Of course that would depend on the original configuration of the bed and available FLOOR SPACE.

My bad Not very familiar with the listed trailers which use the same configuration. Just thought there would be a lot of shock and bounce at the rear with the majority of the weight of the AC hanging out in space.

Hi Roger, the production model A/C will have a molded plastic vented cover to protect it from road debris. They are also installing rubber bumpers to protect noggins.

Cargo Trailer

Hi Mike! I saw the Cargo Trailer and it seemed huge! I dont recall losing a lot of floor space with the curve. You could contact Nicholas and he'd give you all the specs you're looking for.

Kip is right about the swivel rockers. There is even a photo on that other snoozy locked thread.

Moderators, can the the other snoozy thread be unlocked now that we see the company and product are real, no a hoax? That is, if you think it's Appropriate. I was just tossing the idea out there.

It will be interesting so see what they come up with for the rear door for the cargo model and if the queen bed is allowed to stay and still carry a 4 wheeler, or Harley inside there. Looks like it would.

I would think the rear a/c would get a vinyl cover like Chalet and A-liner to protect the coils getting muddy in dirty driving conditions.

Interior headroom

Well, the website says 6'2" but Hubby is 6 ft and had an entire hand's width between his head and the ceiling. Now the flooring hadnt been put in yet so that will eat up a little but not much.

. I think this thread and the earlier one split drom the Classifieds discussion are much more positive venues for discussion of the RV. If you want to refer to the old thread, it's there in the Hello forum, but for the sake of new readers I would prefer not to reopen old wounds. It wasn't our proudest moment.

Regards,

I see from other posts in this thread that you will be heading from WY to TX and back to FL during the July/August time frame. Why not make a stop at Camp Hale for the rally on July 18-20? Depending on your path south from WY it could be just a small side trip. Lots of beautiful mountain scenery and friendly 'glass owners.

Camp Hale is located near Leadville CO about an hour drive south of I-70.

What is your destination in WY?

Three things occur to me:
1) I'd like to see the brake lights and the turn signals higher up on the body. Easier to see.
2) Will the shape effect the tongue weight. Since it is shaped like a wing, will the air flow push up or down?
3) The roof appears to be supported by the privacy curtain "arch" replacing the role of the cabinets in the traditional egg. This should allow lots of freedom in the layout from there back. If I were rebuilding an old camper and wanted a larger bed, it would be worth consideration.

Hey Melissa, ain't you havin' fun. Raz

I could not disagree more,but what else is new?

To me that thread was what this Forum can do best,look out for each other.
It seems to me that if we do not ask questions and hope for accountability why are we here?
I take certain comfort in this and I don't think it ever got out of hand or nasty?
I look at it as Prudent,maybe that is just me?
