We love everything about the Snoozy and I'll write more and post pics when we get home. I may talk to Alan about a/c upgrade when we might be thru SC next year. I just think in the middle of a hot day with the sun beating down the A/C can't handle it, but I'm sitting in the Snoozy in Brown County Indiana right now and loving it.

A/C in snoozy

We stopped by the plant two weeks ago on our way to camp at Table Rock state park in SC. We wanted to see the 12000 btu ourselves. Looks like it will keep you very cool...but it's a little too big a unit for my needs. I will keep my eye out for an 8000 btu that can fit into the original ( or slightly larger ) opening. If anyone knows of one, please let me know make and model. We camped for 10 days and it rained every day! The snoozy was great and got a lot of attention. We got to use our new back door awning and like it a lot.
I'll be posting some pics of the remodel I did last month on the Boozy. Happy Trails

I did see the 1200 installed in your trailer?

It looks like a nice unit.

I tried to join the web site last night but didn't get a reply in my mailbox. I'll try again later.

Dont know about that you will proubly haft to go to an 9000 roof air / heat strip , maybe put a window or stained glass where your a/c is now . I think Alan knows where to get the roof air.

This is the closest thing I could find that heats and cools. I think it is too large and too heavy. You are probably better off getting a good AC unit and a portable plug in electric heater. LG 7,000 BTU Heat/Cool Window Air Conditioner w/ Remote - LW7010HR

Now I'm wondering if there is a 7000 or 8000 BTU unit that is the exact same size as what comes with the snoozy. If so I'd be willing to swap that out myself and give it a try.

Alan told me he's looking into a supplier for roof top units that heat and cool.

They will be a little pricey, but the thing that caught my ear was that the generator we bought won't be able to push it and the refrigerator??!

I'm keeping an open mind before we upgrade...but I'm sure we will upgrade the unit sometime and sell original on Craiglslist. Any takers???

I think one of the biggest advantages of the snoozy is the seamless roof. You never have to worry about major leaks. If you add the AC to the roof you have one more potential leak to worry about.

Oh yeah,
We also discussed a cover for the abandoned unit, if we go with a rooftop unit. I suggested it be a solid cover about 2 to 3 inches in depth made of tan fiberglass for the outside and then I would build a cabinet for spices, cleaning stuff etc, where the old unit was. It's a work "in motion " and just ideas to improve an already pretty nifty trailer.

Camping at Stone Mountain NC next!

I agree about the roof, but that's why they invented silicone caulk!!
