Waiting on Snoozy response

I'm not too concerned about this at this time.
But I am interested in the opinions and advice
of all the engineer types on this forum what you
think of my thinking on a Triple-Twin Bed-Model?

If our health and finances improve, I'm thinking
of jumping back in sometime in the future........
Whether next year or when I'm 90.........LOL

I know they already have the Twin Bed version but
I'm thinking I can incorporate McDenny's version and
this together to make a Triple Twin Bed version, or
even a couple bunk beds and a Twin..........

Any ideas for me?

Hi Richard.
I have been tweeking some ideas I'm having.

To begin with:
A 36 inches wide twin bed platform in the very front running from side to side.
The dividing boards behind that with a 12V light on both sides of each side board.
Four in all.
A 110V plug-in on the passenger side for a cpap machine for the twin bed platform.
A double-door access underneath the twin bed platform. Possibly outside access
doors on both sides of the trailer under the twin bed platform.

Then on the drivers side a 24" X 72" platform with 3 pull out drawers underneath.
Needs to be seat height (after adding 4" cushions) to be used as seating area.
A escape window with those hydraulic rods that hold the window open.

Opposite that, another 24" X 72" platform with 3 pull out drawers underneath.
Also, needs to be seat height (after adding 4" cushions) to be used as seating area.
A escape window with those hydraulic rods that hold the window open.

At the end of the driver side platform, a 18" chest of drawers at counter height.
Will need a 110V plug-in for cpap machine to sit on top of drawer cabinet.

At the end of the passenger side platform, a 18" chest of drawers at counter height.
Will need a 110V plug-in for cpap machine to sit on top of drawer cabinet.

On driver side behind drawer cabinet a cassette toilet; No shower.
A Maxx-aire fan above the cassette toilet.

On passenger side behind drawer cabinet a 24" X 48" counter top with 2 double-doors
underneath. A 110V outlet at each end of the counter top. No sink needed.
Above the counter top; the A/C unit.

Then the entry door at the back.
A rear bumper with step.

For power connection, a 30amp inlet connector. No stuffing a wire inside.

We loved #161 but had to let her go because of health reasons.
Wife and special needs daughter now need cpap machines as well and the standard
setup no longer fit our needs. It was our first ever camper so there was a big learning
curve. lol.

Since I don't have the trailer here anymore I was guesstimating the measurements from
the website. You can inform me if this will work or not. I'm sure there will plenty of
tweaking needed to my rough draft tweaking.

I tried answering your questions below.

Thanks, Carl

Hey Carl,



Working on your quote. I’m trying to drill down exactly what you would want included on this unit so I can quote correctly.



- Empty Snoozy shell mounted on galvanized trailer frame.

-Standard trailer build (hydraulic drum surge brakes).

- Exterior (side) Running and (rear) Brake Lights? [Yes] to this;

- Aluminum Mag Wheels [No] to this; standard wheels.

- Grey Water Tank [No] to this; no plumbing.

- Mounted underneath? [No] to this; no plumbing.

- Plumbed to anything? [No] to this; no plumbing.

- Interior Lights? If any, how many? [Yes] to this; Thinking (4) 12V at this time.

- Windows or Cargo Doors? If any how many and installed or just included for customer install?



Thinking (2) escape windows with lift supports.

Thinking regular back door with screen door.





Thanks for your help!

Hello,

Carl Keigley here.



Can you give me a quote for just an empty Snoozy?

Perhaps with and without the grey water tank?



Thanks,

Carl

Carl, I know that I have tried Richard's patience with my many questions and modifications, and have to say he does get back with you via emails & by phone. Richard called me today to clarify my request for a 7 pin plug to be added during our Snoozy build for a 12 volt charging wire and for a solenoid to block our surge DISC brakes while backing up. He is also installing jalousie windows (even in an emergency escape window), a Maxx-Air fan on the ROOF, mounted the air conditioner 6" lower so I can install larger overhead cabinets myself, and they are installing a 12 volt TruckFridge and a kitchen faucet with built in pull-out sprayer head. I rec'd our flexible solar panel & controller (same as McDenny). Richard really does try to give you a personalized product.
The beauty part of the Snoozy is you can start with the Lil Hauley (empty shell) and build it any way that suites you, as the roof does not need any supports.
Best of luck with your new trailer.
Dave & Paula

At best I'm thinking it will be a couple years before we are able
to buy again. I traded my Taco off after paying it off for a new
Honda Odyssey for the wife. Can pay it off in two years if I only
make the payments. Then I turned around and bought a new toy.
A John Deere 3032E with brush hog, box blade, front loader and
18 foot bed trailer for it. I financed it for 5 years but plan to triple
up on it and pay it off when we pay the Honda off (or sooner).

Then if my plans work out we can go at it again.

I think I can make 3 twin beds fit.

If you want to come by and measure inside my Hauley, let me know. Also there's another Snoozy just 2 miles south of me (belongs to Lloyd Wayne).

Empty shells are in the $7k ballpark, I think.

Thanks Mike.
I'll keep that in mind.

They priced a Hauly to me at $9500.
So you want to keep that in mind if you decide to
sell yours some time.

He did say he'd make me special price as a repeat customer.

2 miles south of you. That's cool.
I'll keep my eye out when I'm out and about.
One in Enid as well, unless that's the same one.

Just had a brain storm..............LOL
I could make some templates how I think it would work
and then lay them in your floor to see how it is in reality.

Templates, yup. (Brainstorm? I thought I saw a flash of light in the sky! )

No idea about the one in Enid; can't be the same one.

The trailer will be sitting empty in my back yard from Memorial Day until mid-August.

That says a whole lot for the LS if you just sold yours and want to buy another LS in the future. I guess that says you were happy with the product, nice to hear.

We were happy with it.
It was personal circumstances and health problems
that caused us to sell it.

Well, actually we didn't put it up for sale.
I just mentioned we would let it go and wham. SOLD.
I could have backed out but I'm not that sort.....LOL

But it does take experience to whittle down the real needs
you have and don't have. That was our first trailer so we
got a good education and some memories from it.

Great infö for us that are still setting up our order, share what your thoughts are. I know I like the queen bed so the standard floor plan works for us. Other options such as window placement, bumper, 12v fridge are what I am reading on now. I was also told by Richard that there is a possibility of getting an all white one since they inject that color also into the inner mold. He was going to look at that and get back to me. I would rather have a white one if it is all possible and close to or the same price.

Thanks
