LOL, NOT having A/C would turn us off as we live in the South and MUST have it. I'm working up a way to add A/C to the window of the T@B once it arrives. The little window units are much lighter than the rooftop style so it's not as much of a weight issue using them.

Nicholas: Will you be camping in your region with a Lil' Snoozy to drum up attention to it? It's probably more relaxing and less expensive than going to RV shows.

We all know how plans change, especially when starting a new buisness. My PLAN is to attend some rally's in the south east, as well as major events (IE car shows, airshows etc) Your right, it is tremendously more fun and relaxing being in a camp ground rather than a show room.

I'm having better luck posting here than via emails so here are some more questions for Nicholas-
is the frame galvanized painted black or a conventional 4" box frame? Who is manufacturer of disc brakes and any pictures of the brake set up, is there a picture of cross section of the hull/wall/floor showing thickness and insulation, what about blinds or shades for the windows, where is fresh water tank?

one answer is here, take care.
"The fresh tank is located under the couch, along with the Shurflo revolution pump."

I'm glad your asking the questions because they are all the right ones in my opinion that I don't know enough yet to ask. Keep going!

head room

Is the headroom really 6'4"? I thought Melissa had measured 6'2" when she came back from the factory. I was very excited about this trailer when I first saw the pictures from Melissa, since it's the only egg that has that nice sofa configuration. That would be perfect for us (dinettes don't do it for us at all). But my husband is 6'3", so when I saw the height I was disappointed. If it's really 6'4" then this will be on top of our list now. We had been thinking about Eggcampers because of the height thing, but the molded in furniture was turning us off. The new Parkliners are nice because of the price and the headroom, but they also have the dinette thing going on. Maybe I should have asked this on Lil' Snoozy's site directly. But maybe others might be interested in headroom.

My Hubby is 6 ft and had a hand's width between his head and the ceiling. You'll have to ask Snoozy for the exact height but Hubby thinks it has to be at least 6' 4" with the distance he had. With no subfloor to eat up height that may be where the benefit comes in.

I know Pa is not considered the Southeast, but it would be great if you could make the Pocono Eggfest in July. I see that Cpharley has an interest and so do we. Figured I'd put it out there...

bed size

I just e-mailed lil snoozy to get the bed size. After posting yesterday, I noticed on their website they mentioned underbed storage as being 72" x 60". That's queen width, but is really short. My hubby is 75". I've read on the forums that some folks think bed size is more important than ceiling height. We do want him to be able to stand up though. That may leave us with just the Eggcamper on our list. Their bed isn't really wide enough for us though (he's fairly broad too, not just tall). Finding that perfect egg is sure challenging.

It's very important to me also. I'm 6' 5" and the snoozy site say:
Lil Snoozy Specifications

Overall Dimensions Length: 17ft 3in
Height: 7ft 5in
Width: 7ft 11in

Living Area Dimensions
Length: 14ft 6in
Interior Width: 6ft 6in
Interior Head Room: 6ft 4in
Dry Weight : 1900 LBS** (weight varies on options selected)
Fresh Water - 35 gallons
Gray Water - 31 gallons


I can deal with an inch or two less than needed on height.....but the bed is more important to me. I see where the interior width is 6' 6". that's 78" and my queen here is 80". So it looks like it's going to be a close call for me.
I'll know more when we stop to see it in June. BTW.....I wonder how long the sofa is? If I had to sleep there and the wife on the queen that's ok too. I believe the Casita is 6'3" for the 17 footer and the Egg is about 6'7". It's the best for the tall guys, but I'm not certain about the bed size.
Have a great holiday everyone! And for all you Vets....THANK YOU!

It would be nice to have a heat pump or something else that would do both. In California the AC would be great.

I have a renewed interest in the Snoozy. I also have a couple of questions to ask.

Was a roof mounted AC ever a consideration? I really don't like the look of the AC, I would love to see picture of the new AC location and design.

I hate the 12x12 floor tiles, I referred back to the pictures, I'd probably opt to install laminate flooring over your tiles, how is the 1/4 round molding attached? I'd want to remove the molding to install the laminate flooring. My CT-13 only required 1 box of laminate flooring at a cost of $35 and it looks MUCH better than those tiles. If you had an reasonable pricing option to upgrade to laminate I'm sure you'd have a bunch interested. The sacrifice of 1/2 inch shouldn't matter for headroom, I'm 6'2".

Do you have a picture of the generator mount? I have a Yamaha 2000.

Are the wheel bearings sealed? Or will they require maintenance?

I see a floor mount in front of the couch, is that for a dinette table?

bed size

James, you might want to ask Nicholas directly on their website that list of questions. He might respond sooner. He just responded by e-mail today to my bed size question that I asked a few days ago, but hasn't yet on the forum here.
For all who are interested, the bed appears to be actually 79" x 60". So this one's a winner. Despite head room, Eggcamper can't compete with this great floor plan. We are used to a 60" bed, and the Eggcamper has a 54" I think. And having a couch is a great idea (for some of us that is). We don't even have a kitchen table in our studio apartment we live in, but instead eat on TV trays on the couch watching TV. So you see why the dinette idea just doesn't fly with us. I sure hope this company can take off successfully since we aren't ready to buy just yet. Hopefully the permanent bed and low weight will appeal to people. I think the foam insulation in these might be a little better than the new Parkliner (which also interests us mainly for the head room and low price). Parkliner uses astrofoil insulation with 'rat fur'. We want this for 4 season use in CA.
