Lil snoozy

Has anyone been to the Lil Snoozy factory lately. I know they have made some changes. I would like to see pictures if someone has them.

Lil Snoozy visit in December

As you probably know from my thread I was at the plant in December and will be back in April to pick up the trailer I ordered.
I was never there before December so I have nothing to compare the current plant to.
I did see the changes in the trailers as pointed out in other FRV threads by Alan and Nicholas. They are constantly using peoples suggestions to improve their product. Inside cabinet space has been increased substantially. I was concerned about rear lighting on the trailer. They already addressed that issue by adding an elevated brake light and additional LED lighting in the back. They have made several other changes that I am sure they would be glad to discuss with you in detail if you contact them.
It is very obvious that their goal is to sell trailers and they aim to do that by exceeding their customers expectations. I wish every company I have ever dealt with for any reason had their eagerness to provide the best product and service possible. I could not be more pleased with all they have done to meet my needs in a trailer.

Or has anyone even weighed the tongue weight? Or indicated towed miles per gallon, a measure of the shapes efficiency?

I have already made arrangements with an acquaintance that owns an asphalt manufacturing company to use his scales. I will also check fuel mileage driving to SC with no trailer and fuel mileage returning with a trailer. I talked at length with 3 current owners and none had done either a fuel check or a weigh in. The best information I was able to get from one owner was that their Lil Snoozy towed as good or better with the same tug as their previous 13 ft. egg. Granted, that is not definitive information, but all that I had to go on.
I will update you when I have the information you asked for.

Great to hear Bill, please actually unhook it from the vehicle when you weigh it so we get to hear the real total weight.

Actually it would be good to weigh it connected to the tow vehicle and disconnected from the tow vehicle. The difference would be the tongue weight.

Thanks Bill for the information. I am looking forward to hearing from you when you get your Lil Snoozy. We hope to order ours soon. This forum is a great help to all of us, when trying to make decisions about our FRV's

Our tongue weights with the Honda 2000 Generator on it weighed in at 274 lbs. subtract the gen for less tongue weight. Also the customer has the ability to increase or decrease the tongue weight by the amount of items in the storage area under the bed. Our water tank is right over the axle under the couch so either empty or full it shouldn't affect the tongue weight that much. The refrigerator and all the kitchen cabinet storage items are behind the axle so that will have some effect also. We have not weighed the tongue since we introduced our news lighter weight frame or body but feel that will help some too. Also we are in the process of building two new molds for what we will call "Saddlee Bag" fenders that will be an option and retrofitable to all existing "LiL Snoozys" adding a good bit of storage in the rear portion behind the tire that will increase the consumers ability to balance, decrease or increase the tongue weight while also adding a lot of out the cabin storage. The new fenders will extend all the way to the rear of the camper and will be flared on the front for better astectics and air flow. We are so busy right now that these will probably not be available until next year but will be easily retrofit able in short order either by us or the customer in kit form if they live far away. Also as one customer said he mounted the spare tire out side on the rear wall to the left of the door and said he reduced his tongue weight a good but. He did not say or know how much tho. Another a customer built a bike rack on the rear also doing the same thing, So the customer has ways to change or at least control his weights with the "Lil Snoozy" . We are constantly trying to make it better and with all you guys advice it helps. Again Thanks a lot!!
The "LiL Snoozy" team
PS: As always if we can help with any of your projects just give us a call.

Ok I will bite what does the generator weigh?

What does the trailer that weighed 274lb on the tongue have in the way of options on it at the time? Did that include the battery weight etc?
