Thumbs up Lil Snoozy Purchase

Well folks, I finally did it. I wrote a check and ordered a new Lil Snoozy. I want to thank all of you that contributed to my questions and helped me decide on which Egg was best for me. While all trailers have their positive points and faults (this is subjective to each individual) I feel confident that I got just what I was looking for. I want you all to know that I have been researching Eggs for 3 or 4 years and just discovered this site a few months back. Your willingness to answer questions has allowed me to gather in a few short months as much information as I had attained in 4 years.
My experience up to this point has convinced me that the people at Lil Snoozy, Alan and Nicholas, have the desire to build an excellent quality trailer and truly do take the time to provide every reasonable effort to satisfy their customers.
I would want to encourage anyone considering a new trailer to not ignore the Lil Snoozy. I feel confident that you will be impressed as I am and not sorry you took the time to investigate this up and coming builder. While I find the established manufacturers quite reputable and builders of quality trailers, I am now convinced with prejudice that Lil Snoozy has taken fiberglass trailers to a new level.
As my experience with Lil Snoozy progresses I will keep this thread updated for anyone with interest.

Now comes the hard part: waiting!

Be sure to post some pics of your first camping trip, when the time comes!

Congratulations on your decision!

Please tell up what options you ordered, sometimes if you want to modify something, it helps to tell the manufacturer your wants so that he can make any changes he can to accommodate your ideas. An extra light there, an extra outlet here, I know I always need at least 2x12v outlets in any rv I've owned. If you plan on converting to led's maybe you can purchase before hand and tell Lil Snoozy not to install the regular bulbs and send them the news ones, or they may offer the upgrade. It's going o be fun planning your new little home. enjoy.

Ditto Harley's 12 volt outlets. We have two inside and one outside, useful for running our 12 volt compressor among other things. We use one inside continuouslly for our Internet booster and typically have a rechargeable flash light plugged into another.

The other thing that's easier to add during construction phase is more AC outlets - we have 10 with one of those outside.

Glad to hear of another Snoozy order. We were disappointed circumstances arose that required us to cancel our order and enjoy hearing of others purchase/adventures. We too were impressed with Nicholas and Alan and wish them the best in the New Year. Congratulations and be sure to post lots of pix!

Tell us what you like best about their design and execution, Bill. What are some of the factors that take it to a new level in your view? Shell strength? Interior finish? Other things? Please do a 'compare and contrast' for us.

Lil Snoozy comes Standard with 4 GFI 120V receptacles and 3 reg 120 V receptacles. LED lights are standard. See Lil Snoozy web site for standard options.

I ordered additional cabinet as some of our camping trips may be for as long as 4.5 months. We ordered rear awning, spare tire, 2 additional windows. We did electric range top delete so I may add my own propane stove & tank.

Shell strength and interior finish are definite pluses. Other factors I consider pluses are no plugs through fiberglass to lead to future leaks. Galvinized and/or Stainless fittings, frame, & fixtures to eliminate rust, disc brakes, and a solid screen door. Other positive factors include items such as air conditioner, refrigerator, etc. standard items easily accessible from almost any appliance store which can be easily and cheaply replaced.

I love the open design that is not claustrophobic with a full time bed and a regular queen size mattress. I also like the front of the trailer design that eliminates much wind buffeting when towing.

The only negatives from my viewpoint are they are prohibited by their insurance carrier to provide propane appliances. They will, however, construct in such a manner to allow you to easily do your own retrofit when you get it home. I would also prefer electric brakes rather than surge brakes. They do, however, have what is probably as good as you can get surge system with discs rather than drums and an electric lockout when your vehicle is in reverse to allow back-up without unwanted braking.

As I said in my thread, "I think they have taken fiberglass trailer construction to a new level", and as this point I could hardly be more pleased.

Thanks! That's good to know. Waiting is the hard part now. Did they say when it should be ready for pickup?
