We ordered ours Last week of Aug. We were told then about 9 to 11 months out. I like they build them by hand, 3 a month. We watched on YouTube a 25 foot Camper being made in 7 hours. I am sure it was top quality..LOL.
Since winter is coming we don't mind the wait. We are at the age we want something of quality & the Fiberglass seems to fit the bill.

LiL Snoozy build times

They have four on staff including Amy in the office. They contract out the shells(Falcon Boats), The trailer frame and axle (Wesco) and the cabinets. The staff puts it all together including plumbing ,wiring and assembly. I was there last week. The quality of the shells was impressive.

Hey Tim, Doug and Roxanne here in North Potomac. Sorry, but we got ours in August of 2017 and our order was in November 2016.

Agree that the wait is worth it.

Maybe we will see you at a regional fiberglass RV event.

I think they got used it (big down payment) early on and with continued orders rolling in, why stop?

It could have an opposite effect where competitors Raise their down payment requirements. As interest rates slowly increase, getting zero interest working capital is pretty sweet.

Well Casita gives you a time and date to pickup your trailer when you order it, it's even down to the hour on the day it's ready. What I think is so funny about Casita is their lot is full of Casita's waiting to be picked up, 50 plus on the lot at one time, don't owners want them. Ours was ready for pickup as soon as it was finished and we got it a couple of days later, I didn't want it to just set on the lot too long an just collect dust. Casita delivers only 4 per day and it you miss your pickup date you get pushed back for a opening date that someone has cancelled or rescheduled there's. Casita is pretty much run by the book and it all seems to workout for them and the customer, is that not what you want and should expect from your manufacture.

I placed my Snoozy order in April of 2017 and It still hasnít been built. They gave me a 6 month window. Iíve called them several times and it seems they are having issues with getting fiberglass shells. I hoping this means that quality is better (and slower) than quantity. Mine is supposed to be started soon. Any info to the contrary would be appreciated. Thanks

For those that have been waiting a while already or are close to their build (or just picked theirs up), what are you hearing from Snoozy on actual pick-up vs. the time you were told when you placed the order?

Since they gave me a 6-8 month window I'm just going to assume it will take them 8 months. Reading through the forums I haven't heard of a situation where someone accepted delivery earlier than what was originally expected.

Hopefully this thread will help those of us waiting anxiously for our LiL Snoozy. I will admit having 10k locked-up in an R/V that doesn't have a "firm" pick-up date makes me pretty nervous, so it's good to hear stories from others.

Sorry to here about Snoozy time delays and how long it takes to get one. I haven't heard of Casita having these delay problem and the time is 3-4 months for deliveries.

We ordered ours August 8, 2017 and are still waiting. The last estimate they gave me was mid-Feb, 2019. I've spoken with a few other customers who have recently taken delivery and it seems to be running in the 16-18 month range. It sounds like they had shell problems this summer and some ongoing workforce issues. At this point, we've pretty much missed the camping season so it probably doesn't make much difference if ours gets done tomorrow or next spring. I know the floorplan, all electric design and cassette toilet aren't for everyone but if it's what you are looking for, the quality of the build still looks very good to me.

I hope it meets all your expectations! The floor plan would be the best 4 me, thats what got me looking @ them
I just dont think it would meet my boondocking needs . They need to offer some type of solar option to complement the genny option. The bed is another big selling point 4 me
I like having a permanent bed with a real matteress. Im sure the wait os gonna be worth your while!!

I'm Scott and a new member to this forum. I made a deposit on a Snoozy in mid October and was told the waiting list was 14 months.

I would like to add that this will be my first RV and would be appreciative of information, experiences and suggestions from others, especially involving the Snoozy. I'm retiring in early December '18 and plan to make use of the wait time learning about on-board systems, options and upgrades. I don't plan to travel continuously but will be spending a lot of time in the RV.

Welcome Scott! The wait for our Snoozy was worth it!. We shopped and planned how we wanted to personalize ours. The time will go by quickly.


I would also like to add that Mitzi in a post she made a long time ago, suggested buying an extension cord for the electrical hookup. We did buy one from Amazon while we waited on our build. Figured we would never use it! Well, our last trip this Fall to Edisto Beach we were about a foot too short reaching the box and couldn't back up any further so the connection could be made. I highly recommend this to other Snoozy owners!!

I would rent an RV (perhaps a smaller Class C motorhome) and take a trip when you are retired. Some great state parks in SC, GA and AL. Figure Florida will be PACKED all winter with snowbirds.
