Lil Snoozy @ the Gathering

I talked with Nick from Lil Snoozy down @ the gathering in Pa. over the weekend. I asked him some questions that I and others had, so we sat down and talked about them. Nick is a very nice guy, just like his Dad and more than willing to talk about new ideas and old standards alike. They have a hard job in front of them, but listening to other fiberglass camperís is a big step forward. And Iím sure changes will come along a little at a time, after all they do want to sell the campers. I wish them the best of luck on their new venture, it was a big hit at the gathering @ our pot luck dinner to have it right there for all to look and see. Nick and his Dad have some good ideas on building this neat little camper, like a new fender design with outside storage behind it. And at the same time raising the taillights up higher than where they are located now.

Here are some Snoozy questions that some members had along with some answers I got from Nick.
1.How are cabinets/furniture attached to the walls.?
There are holes drilled through the seam of the two halfís, then a bolt/screw is placed into the hole and through/into the cabinet. Also the oak trim is fastened by a L bracket that is attached to the inner wall and then to the trim piece with screws to the inside fiberglass wall.
2. Does the trailer come with disc brakes? Yes they all will have disc brakes on the trailers, the one that Nick brought to the gathering didnít have them, but they all will. The trailer he was going to bring up they sold just before the gathering, so Nick had to bring one of their prototypes.
3. Are the frames still galvanized? Yes and they will continue to be. They are trying to find some black paint to cover the galvanized trailer.
4. Any other floor plans like a dinette for 4 or Swivel chairs. Not yet but they are talking about different plans. To change plans sometimes means having to move the fresh water tank to under the bed, which means more tongue weight. But they are working on some changes.
5. Overall height and clearance underneath ? 7í5Ē for height and around 8Ē from gray water tank to ground.
6. Can you get propane installed, also a 3way fridge , stove top , hot water heater, & furnace ? Yes
7. Can I buy just the shell with nothing in it and make my own camper. Yes

If anyone wants to contact Lil Snoozy via email let me know by pm and Iíll send a email address. You can ask a question or if you have a recommendation/idea you think would be nice. By the way the pull out couch is very comfortable and makes a really nice size extra bed. Here are some pics.

Thanks for taking the time to write down all our questions and then posting this. We really appreciate it.

About answer number one, you can see the screws penetrating the exterior in a previous thread. It's the post with he password protected photo set. Escape also has S&S screws for some cabinet anchor points like this method here. Your photos turned out great

Ken, The base cabinets that are anchored inside are the ones that are drilled through the seam. The seam is glued together with a special glue, then is covered by the black vinyl type covering. So nothing is seen from the outside of the trailer, a very neat way of attaching them imo. Also the shell is very strong you could stand on it. Hope this helps. I also just posted inside pics except where you see the cassette toilet door in the rear of the outside camper. I figured there were plenty of outside pics posted already.

Looks pretty nice. Not exactly what I would want, but I'm sure those that purchase one of these will enjoy it.

Tim,
Thank you for posting the pictures and our conversation! I cannot begin to tell you (and the rest of the forum) how wonderful of a time Leslie and I had at the Rally. I cannot wait until we can go to another one.

Nick.... I really like the LiL Snoozy. If I had the $$$$ I would own one! I would have bought it instead of the U-Haul I just purchased.

Great photos Tim. Thanks for asking Nicholas many of the questions I had. He answered many for me earlier.

Glad everyone had a chance to see it.

Lil Snoozy - couch camping

Hope they come out with a floor with the traditional dinette. This would be good for TV watching but not for card playing on a rainy day.
