Pickup Lil Snoozy July 10th

We're very excited and want to thank all of you who helped us in our FG search. We live in a suburb of Chicago and invite anyone that wants to see a Lil Snoozy around Chicago to let us know.

We ordered a Lil Snoozy and are picking it up July 10th. Of the FGRVs the Lil Snoozy seemed to be the lightest for what was important to us. We'll be towing with a 2010 Forrester. The dry weight of the Lil Snoozy is about 1900lbs according to Alan. It has the full queen and the quality appears great. We went down and saw them back in April. Alan and the whole team are very accomodating and very nice. We're also having a 2" receiver hitch put on the rear of the Lil SNoozy for our bicycles. We had a transmission cooler installed on our Forrester just to be safe.

TRAVEL STOP SUGGESTIONS: Any must stops between SC and Chicago on our return trip with our Lil Snoozy?? We're also going to see our kids around Woodstock NY in August and are thinking about going up to the finger lakes region and maybe into Canada going around the Great Lakes back thru Detroit on our way back to Chicago. If you have suggestions let us know.

Thanks again for all your help! Never done this before.

Dave

Sounds like New York is the place to be. Thanks for the suggestions. We'll give them a try and let everyone know.

If Jenny Wiley represents the quality of KY resort parks, be sure to stop at one of those. We are staying at Jenny Wiley for the third time the last week of July. The park has spotless bathrooms, full hookups, a restaurant (where they feed the critters outside the large windows, so you can watch), a hotel (if you need to stay overnight on the way down - we have stayed there), canoeing, fishing, a swimming pool, hiking, a unique golf course (not there but near - revamped coal mine), and a semi-pro musical theater (We are going to see Grease. One time, we laughed ourselves to stitches watching Nunsense.). If you watched the Hatfield and McCoy series, Pikeville is not far away either (The court cases happened there.).

We are also staying at Blue Licks State Park, so it will be interesting to see what it seems like, compared to our experience at Jenny Wiley.

I may want to tour your Snoozy. I live in Oak Park. We love our Uhaul VT, but at times, I dream of something different, especially when I whack my head into the curvy headroom and/or the stove fan (That is going though. It is on the hubby to-do list, especially since the directions with pix have been posted) or dream of being able to have a camper where we can pass in the hallway.

Will you be able to get in and out of the Snoozy with the bikes in place, or will they have to be removed each day?

If you are in the finger lakes region, I would suggest Letchworth state park in NY. We had a great time there. It is kind of the mini grand canyon of the East.

Cindy,

Thanks. I'll check out Jenny Wiley! Send me a private message and I'll send you my phone so you can stop by to see the Lil Snoozy. We're in Skokie. We should be back in Chicagoland the last week in July.

We have a bike rack that swivels down and out of the way (with bikes still attached) so the door should open cleanly without removing the bikes. Might be problem if you want a step up to the door. Just don't know. We use it on the end of our Forrester all the time with easy access thru the Forrester back door. It's a Softride. About $225. It's a 4 bike rack even though we just have 2 bikes. Don't know if they make a 2 bike rack. It's the best! Good for friends if they want to join us. When we camp we'll probably just put it on the car hitch after parking the Lil Snoozy. Or just put the bikes in the Lil Snoozy while we explore in our Forrester or just go hiking. Hope that helps.

Thanks Eric. We'll definitely put it on our list as we head north from the Woodstock area. Our son and his girlfriend wrote a screenplay that's in theaters now. It's Love Peace and Misunderstanding with Jane Fonda. She plays a hippie grandmother. How's that for type casting. They live in Kerhonkson NY. Don't know how long it will be in the theaters. MY SHAMELESS PLUG.

Thanks Denny. We spoke on the phone recently. If we go thru the Detroit area in August I'll try annd touch base to see the mods you are making. I'm not as handy as you but would love to see what ideas you came up with.

We will be gone the last week of July, camping in our Uhaul at Jenny Wiley and points east and south, so it will have to be August. Better yet, take it to the Michigan get-together, and everyone can see it there.
