And - good, bad or otherwise - since the Lil Snoozy comes default with surge activated brakes, you don't need to worry about installing a brake controller and 7-pin electrical receptacle on your tow vehicle.

A Different View

Currently I own a wonderful very small trailer (no bathroom, can't stand up) and have been looking for months at many different units.

I visited Lil' Snoozy a few months ago, Prior to my visiting Lil' Snoozy I made an appointment. When I arrived only the young woman who runs the front desk was there and apologized the owner/sales person was not available. I spent quite a bit of time going over the entire trailer and was not really happy about the quality of the finishing of the interior. I had some specific questions about trailer insulation and was not comfortable with the answers I received. Still, I kept it in mind as a possibility.

Yesterday I spent several hours at the Parkliner factory, which is in Burlington NC. I made an appointment ahead of time. I was there for several hours. Tom answered all my questions in depth and shared his experiences camping in cold weather with the Parkliner. I toured the entire factory, looked into a trailer under construction and handled components that are used in the trailer. I also was in the finished model. I put down my money. They are going to build an all electric unit for me with the options that I desire.

I was at Snoozy a few months ago. At that time, they had an old model in the showroom. They've made some changes; the trailers are now white, the interior fiberglass finish is smooth. I'm surprised Richard wasn't there to greet you and give you the tour!

Leslie, I will say Parkliner was a strong contender, especially since I could have customized one for thousands less than LilSnoozy. Yes, Tom told me also that I could customize and do all electric. As I said, were I single and not a slave to 6 furry beasts (3 of which are ostensibly ferals, but when we took them to the vet were told they didn't ACT like ferals) I would have gone with Parkliner. There is an UNBELIEVABLE amount of storage for the space, and I could've left the big dinette down as a dedicated bed. However, the storage space couldn't be qualified as cat-able, altho putting up the bunks could've given us cat-space- for one. I think the Parkliner is a great option for 1, in my case, not for 2 of us.
But in the future...If I were a solitary camper, would seriously look at changing to a Parkliner.

I am very surprised that Richard Mickle was not there for Leslie's appointment and feel there must have been a serious miscommunication. He is usually so very customer oriented. So Snoozy lost a sale. I hope Richard sees this and ensures it does not happen again. My Snoozy is a great little trailer and we are leaving this afternoon for a very short trip up the road to test out our new axle. It was fun putting in clean towels, etc and getting Marigold ready for the trip. I have only seen Parkliner in pictures, but it looks good also. We considered it before buying Snoozy in Nov of 2013, but Parkliner was having so many problems then that we were scared off.

Best to everyone

Enjoyed all the comments. Seems everyone is happy with their own choices and having fun out there. Right now I camp with a tiny electric refrigerator, a two burner propane stove in an outside galley, no heat, no bathroom, no hot water. My coldest night got down to 17 outside. Been very happy with my current trailer but am going to be camping a lot more, including living in the camper for sometime (months) after I sell my home this summer/early fall. Thus, the Parkliner which is a giant step up for me.



I could have been happy in a Lil' Snoozy, Egg, Nest, Scamp or any of them for that matter. Looking forward to meeting you in the future.

Congratulations Leslie, I love my Parkliner and am really happy with my decision. I have never pulled a trailer before and am comfortable pulling, setting up and traveling with her. I know you will be happy, can't wait to hear of your adventures.
