My First Backyard Photo Shoot of my Snoozy

We left last Wednesday to pick up our Lil Snoozy. From OK to SC.
Got home Wednesday (day before yesterday) and yesterday I took a lot of pics. Remember, everyone says they like pictures......LOL. So, hopefully I won't bore anyone with this. On our trip we had to spend one night in a motel, and after picking up our Snoozy we spent five nights in it on the way back. SC to OK via FL. Arriving home we stripped the Snoozy down and while the wife did the laundry, etc. I set the Snoozy up in the back yard and took pictures. It took a while to upload them and I will post them as I can.



















These are the outside pics for a start.......

They have switched back to the drum brakes for the surge system:

Wife said I was under no circumstances allowed to put stickers and/or bumper stickers on the Snoozy. She did not want it to look like an old people's trailer. Even though it is.

So, I bought a hat at a Flying J truck stop to put hat pins on. Of course not every stop has hat pins so will have to venture back to some of the states to find one. The hat band came loose from the hat, but that's okay as I will make a custom band for it.

Still need pins for NC, Tenn., Georgia, and Florida. Snoozy has already racked up around 2,000 miles in it's first week.

Whether I ever use it or even need it I wanted an outside shower.
Since I can't do so many things myself any more, I asked Alan if they could put one on my Snoozy. They did a good job for me.

I really like that trailer. I have pipe dreams of halfway around my cross-country trip picking one up (of course also with a bigger TV and a lot more money.)

What prevents somebody from walking away with your generator?

A .410 derringer and a 9mm semi-automatic...........LOL

In the event I think it may be a problem. I will probably transfer the generator into the LEER 180 shell on my tow vehicle that I can lock up. Throw a cover over it as to keep it from view. I know I won't be running it while on the tongue. I will find a locking system just to keep the honest folk honest. A thief will get it no matter what we do.

LOL your back yard looks like a great camping spot!!! Trailer also looks great in in it! Re the sticker issue - a number of the group I camp with have propane fire pits (due to frequent fire bans in the summer months). We have taken to putting the stickers of places we go on the fire pit lids, but even stickers are getting hard to find.

This is the Display Model on our first trip to the Snoozy factory.
We have the same bedding as the Display has.



This is the Display Model with the couch let down:



I had my daughter check it out to see if it would do for her:



This is my couch let down:



This is me trying it out: [I'm 6' and 280 lbs.]
My daughter is a head shorter than I am.



My head is on the mattress.

This is the 3-speed Fantastic Fan in the wet bath area:



We spent one night at a Walmart parking lot in Troy, AL. The generator vibrated too much as the trailer was just attached to the pickup. So I turned it off, opened the little bedroom windows, and turned on the Fantastic Fan. It wasn't long before we needed more cover. It was great!



Right side window:



Left side window:



Think that's it for today. Maybe more tomorrow.

Can you get it with a front window? I would miss a window there.

everyone says they like pictures......LOL. So, hopefully I won't bore anyone with this. Thank you soooo much for all the pictures. I have been studying any picture I can find of the Lil Snoozy, to determine what would be the best floor plan, and where extra cabinets could go. Do you find it has enough easily accessed storage for food, clothing, shoes, for everyday living? We looking to live in it 6 months or so at a time, so any comments on this subject would be appreciated.
Happy Trails

Actually, I think Alan would have them put one in the front if you really wanted it. Standard has a big window over the kitchen sink and one over the couch. And one small window on which ever side of the bed you want. Just the one large window makes it feel so spacious, I thought three would make it like you were still out of doors if they were open. Or not. lol.

One over the bed would sure make for some great star gazing. The only real thing that would keep me from putting one there would be the desire to have the absolute minimum of any holes in the top. But it can be done. If I were still young and spry I may have done that.

Hi Dave and Paula..........
I took so much excess baggage that I definitely did not have enough room. lol.
That's one reason we stripped her down when we got home. Mostly to do the laundry. And to learn what we need and don't need. This is our first travel trailer. Neither of us have ever been campers or much into the out of doors. We both HATE bugs...........lol.

I hadn't thought of it, but I did buy a few things to help in the storage department. I will take some pictures of them when it quits raining. We have 2,200 sq. ft. to live in and you can imagine the amount of "stuff" that has been accumulated. My out buildings are "full." So the camper is quite an experience. Our bathroom is bigger than the bedroom I had when I was a kid. So a camper bathroom is something else.........lol.

I already had a Tacoma pickup for a tow, and purchased a LEER 180 shell to help in the storage department. Alan noticed I had it stuffed when he hooked up our Snoozy. And it was stuffed when we got home. Boy, did I have a lot of NON-necessary "stuff." So, it's a big learning curve for me. lol.

But here are some pics of mods others have made in their Snoozy's. Being a self supporting structure you can take out or add just about anything you want.
