Still looking

Just sold my little aliner, feeling kind of sad to see it go. My husband says there are better things ahead, I hope he is right. Well anyway this gets us one step closer to a FGRV. Now we need to sell the 5th wheel which I will be happy to see go. I keep looking at all the web sites and reading these forums. Right now I think the Lil Snoozy is at the top of our list with the Casita and the Scamp running second. Will take a roadtrip one of these days and go check them out better.

Congratulations on selling the Aliner. I'm very happy with my lil snoozy. I'm extending an invitation to come see my lil snoozy. It's easy to tow, very open and comfortable inside. I really like having a small trailer. It's all ready to go. Just pack up food, the dogs, and off we go on another adventure.

Yea, that sounds great. How many dogs do you have? How do they like the Lil Snoozy. We have two dogs. Not enough room in the aliner for the big dog, but she was getting used to it. We feel rather stuck at home right now with no TT.

We have four dogs and they love getting away in the trailer. 3 small dogs and one golden retriever. If I open the door to the trailer, they rush in, and I can't get them out.

Boy do I know that feeling! As soon as I start getting stuff ready to put in the camper( pack my Cpap,get pillows ready ) they go set by the door and don't even think you are going to get out without them. Of course you would think being Chihuahuas you could block them easy. No way they "know" we are going camping and there is no way they are going to get left home again. We did leave them one time so now they just go crazy when the camper gets in the drive and we start getting ready.

Welcome and Happy Camping .......Lynn

Sounds very familiar, I get flattened when my dogs see me packing something out to the trailer. One sits by the car and waits for the door to open, so she won't get left behind.

Hi Ruth, I got some more questions for you about your Lil Snoozy. How are you cooking in your camper? Do you have a generator? Did you put a TV in or did you make a change there? Where do you keep your clothes? Hope I'm not being a pain, but it's good to hear how other have dealt with these campers.

Thanks again
Laura

I like to cook mostly outside. I have a small propane two burner stove that I bought 33 years ago when I moved cross country to California. I bring a little smoky joe barbeque. And I have a microwave oven in the trailer. If it's raining, I set up the awning outside and cook outside under the awning. It's worked fine for me. I guess you could also buy an electric skillet, if you were afraid of the weather. My previous scamps only had two propane burners inside. I have only used the inside propane burners once. An electric skillet would have fit the bill.

No tv, I'm not interested in watching tv when I'm going camping. though, I do bring my ipad, and upload a movie or two on the ipad. Instead of the tv, I had another large window put it the trailer.

Under the place where the tv can go, or where my large extra window is, are storage cabinets. We each get a side. We each have 3 shelves. That's where the clothes and miscellaneous stuff goes. There is a kitchen area around the sink. We keep food in the top two cabinets, and in the 2 cabinets to the left. Cooking utensils go below the sink.

The most important compartment for some of us, is under the couch. that's where we put all the dog dishes and dog food and dog cookies.

We have hooks up next to the couch where the dog leashes belong.

That's how we've worked out things so far. It's nice to keep it organized, or I drive myself crazy trying to find things. I tend to be a big clutterer,so I have to be careful.

The largest compartment in the lil snoozy is under the bed. There is an access port that opens from the outside, and it also opens inside from under the bed. We keep all the bigger stuff there: chairs, awnings, propane stove, spare tire. So far we've only filled it about 30 percent.

So far, I'm not missing the propane. I have a small electric cube heater that I'm gonna get to try for heat, one of these days.

Thanks for the information Ruth. We are thinking of putting two small recliners in instead of the couch, which would put the water tank up front. I am married to a TV addict, so we would need to put up the TV. I have talked to the guy at Lil Snoozy, and he has given me some different suggestions. We like to camp in northern MN. where we would be off power, so are thinking we will need the generator. Our son is a senior this year, so as of next year we will be free to travel a lot more. Just have to worry about a 3 acre yard. Maybe I can talk hubby into going full time. Well we will just have to see what developes.

Get a couple of goats! Seriously, yard work is what keeps me home more often than I like to admit. If I could have a goat in my development... I would!
