In this close up of our towel rack you can see the interior finish on the wall.

Doing your article today and looking for pics. This is a nice close up of the walls. I like the walls better than the casita or parkliner (although maybe the fuzzy walls do insulate better). I'm a bit of a weather-wimp so guess I'll find out.

Carl,
Mind if I use a few of your photos? I'm doing an article about the Snoozy.

You are more than welcome to them Debbi.
I like your blog.

Here's a few from the factory from a couple of the club members.
I think one pic is the original prototype......

The cassette is an "option." I think the standard is the porta-potti,
but you can delete that for adjustment.......

Cassette toilets are great. You can empty them in public restrooms and if you get one with it's own fill tank, you can use it in the winter with auto windshield antifreeze as your liquid.

I was kind of excited when I read your posts on the windshield
antifreeze, but then determined mine uses the fresh water tank.
I thought,,,,,,,,,,,,hm, bummer. But my tank is on the inside so
can manage when camping.

Correct, but you would have to fill your entire water system with rv antifreeze, maybe 4-5 gallons with the separate source, 1-2 gallons of windshield antifreeze is all you need without intermingling it with the rest of the water system in the trailer and no sanitizing in the spring. I wonder if snoozy offers the other model, it was in my T@da!!

Thanks for these too. I'll take a look. Been reading a couple of other threads about single and double hulls...still confused if the Snoozy is a true double hull.

I do not think Snoozy is, Bigfoot and Oliver both are, not sure about anyone else.

I'm sure Alan Smoak would mail you a little scrap of the fiberglass/foam sandwich. Then you could see exactly what the material is.

Last part done: many years ago surge drum brakes went to "free-backing", which means they don't apply when moving rearward. This doesn't work for disk brakes, so with them you use a solenoid which disables them when in reverse, which means the trailer must be wired to the tug's reverse lights.

There's no reason why a surge system can't provide just as much braking as electric, but that would require configuring them correctly, rather than randomly (as is normal practice).

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

The core material in the Snoozy's walls (between the outside fiberglass and the inside fiberglass) will add insulation value.

The Snoozy is one hull, but it is thick, being constructed with outer and inner fiberglass layers sandwiching lightweight core material, all formed together in a single moulding operation.

We went through this in excruciating detail in another thread within the last few months.
