Yes, you are right about the rating. I guess I meant to ask about people's experience towing -- is it bad to have it so close to the max? I have never towed anything....

If 340 on the tongue is the light weight then that's going to go over 350 when loaded up, that seems awful high for a small trailer.

Back from Lil Snoozy with Eye Candy!!
Okay I've just read through what seems like a thousand posts. I will say that I like the looks of the Lil Snoozy. It is now officially on my list to check out. Would sure be interested in finding out what a production schedule looks like. If I decide to order I don't want to be looking at Oct-Nov or later. I'm ready now (or within 2 months. Of course I also realize that these things aren't built until ordered and that takes time.

That's still lighter than the Casita 17 Deluxe. They advertise 365 tongue weight dry on the Casita website. Like you say though, anything over 350 may take a lot of tow vehicles out of the running.

Those Parkliners look Very nice. Real clean look to them. Fibreglass trailers are catching on more all the time!

Emmitt, Lil Snoozy is the "pointed on the front" trailer you are referring to and it does have a full wet bath. The pix was of the prototype so it wasnt complete yet.

Melissa are they actually taking orders or are they still in the prototype stage. I sent an inquiry to them but no response yet. I really like what I see from your photos and very interested.

Nick, you can also blow-up those photos for a better view. It's an interesting trailer, but with a cassette toilet instead of a black tank. There has been quite a bit of conversation here regarding the cassette toilet. I was not familiar with it at all. So keep reading!!

Hi Nick---

Yes, Melissa has ordered one and hopes to take possession in June! Wish she'd tour the country so we could all see it!!!!!

I know you can put your name on the list to hold your place for when they start production. When I spoke to Nicholas a couple of weeks ago our shell should be ready this week barring any complications. He has several shells ordered until he gets his plant producing them. Now I'm not sure how soon he will start finishing the shells since they are still completing the plant itself. They are working Dawn till midnight basically trying to finish the plant so communications have been spotty. I think the best way to reach him would be by phone and he did say the plant office phone has been installed. Leave a VM on his cell as reception inside the plant is lousy.
