Lil Snoozy 1st trip

We went camping for the first time this past weekend in the itza doozy, lil snoozy. It was great to finally get out in the camper.

It felt very spacious inside. The bed was super comfortable, best bed yet that I've had in any camper. It's a queen sized bed, and doesn't do double duty as a dining room table. The light was terrific. The extra big windows create beautiful lighting.

The four dogs fit well inside. They had lots of floor space.

It towed well. Felt very comfortable towing it.

Had people all over stop and admire the trailer.

The refrigerator and microwave worked very well. I really like all the counter space available. I had room to prepare dinner, when it was pouring outside.

I did have some problems..... There are some kinks to work out. One of the problems is that on Sunday, we had trouble with the slope of our camping space and the grey water draining well. I called Alan Smoak, and he was very responsive to all our concerns. Lil Snoozy is going to redo the drain under the trailer.
The problem with a new trailer is that there are some issues that no one realized it was a problem yet. lil snoozy has been terrific, friendly and concerned, and wants to work with us to address all issues. I feel very well taken care of.

I forgot to say that every time I go camping, the heavens let forth and it pours. Without fail, I get caught in torrential downpours. I sure am happy to have a fiberglass trailer, and not a tent or popup trailer. I felt very well insulated and comfy while it stormed all around us.

The camping site was great. Would recommend James river state park in Virginia as a really nice place to go camping. We went kayaking on the water, good fun.

wonderful good to hear. It's like getting a new car, it will take a while to figure everything out. I bet it's fun chatting with folks as they come over to look. Thanks for keeping us updated!

Sounds like a great 'maiden voyage.' This Texan used to spend time in Virginia when I was a kid and someday hope to get back there.

I'm looking for a new trailer w/in the next year and I've been fascinated to follow the Lil Snoozy development. Can I ask what your are pulling Itza Doozy with?

Hope you have many wonderful trips in it!

Karen

We have more pictures, they are just not on my camera. Here's Ben resting up, we exhausted him.

I found a good used truck on craigslist, and pull with a toyota tundra. it gets lousy gas mileage, but is a workhorse for pulling trailers.

Nice picture... I have a yellow lab too, as well as a younger terrier so your experiences with the dogs are interesting.

Oops, not a yellow lab. He's a shaved golden retriever. We go camping with four dogs: one golden retriever, two chinese crested powderpuffs, and one dachsund. When we went kayaking, we turned the air conditioner on high, and left the dogs in the trailer. The whole point of the trailer is to be able to go away with my dogs.

I have the lab, a Decker rat terrier and a dachs also so that interior room (as well as room on the bed) is real interesting. Normally I camp with only one or sometimes two of them. The lab gets ancy in my little 13 but he's a great hiking buddy and I hate to leave him.

Loved your post Ruth. Congrats on the maiden voyage. When you posted the first pictures I thought how spacioous and open it is. As one who wants to travel with my dog I was glad to hear the A/C did the trick while you went off. Hooray for Itza Doozy!

Ruth, Thanks for the review and glad Snoozy is working out for you. I'm sure it will take a little getting use to, and there will be a bug here and there to work out too. Its nice to know that Alan & Nick are taking care of you, I'm sure they want to make Snoozy a great trailer.
