I suspect you may be wrong. I know that at last one other manufacture - Escape - has arranged for problems that came up to be fixed while the owners where on the road rather than having the owner return to their factory.

That's good to hear, Carol!

Like I said, I only based my statement on the little that's on the various websites per warranty work, and Casita's the only one I could find that went so far as to say they'd likely hook folks up with someone more local to the owner/trailer.

I'm going to suspend this discussion for awhile to let things settle down, everyone has their opinions but little known facts. So rather than criticize one another let's take a break. We will convene again after lunch.

I have reopened this thread and it will be monitored for content. Please keep your posts on topic and related to the subject. Please refrain from criticizing other members ideas or thoughts. Hopefully other Lil Snoozy owners will participate now that things have settled down.

Just a reminder. If you find a thread to be getting under your skin but can't drive by without rubbernecking, click on Thread Tools at the top of the page of that thread. Click on Ignore Thread in the pull down menu and the thread will not appear in your updated posts list.

Similarly, if someone is driving you crazy with their posting style, Click on User CP at the top of the page, then in Settings and Options click on Edit Ignore List. Add your least favorite poster's screen name to the list and poof, their posts will disappear to you.

The only problem we had was the ac was not big enough Allen put in a larger one at no charge was BTU standard I think the 8000 Btu is now standard . Condensation was also a problem I ask a lot of ? from just about everyone , leave windows cracked a little that takes care of it unless it is real humid then the fan on low that will do it . I saw that prototype at 15 that would have been a real good buy . All in All I have had 6 RV`s 4 Casitas 1 Big foot fiver 1 class c .All were good the snooz is # 7 has been the one we enjoy the most , would do it again .

My wife and I would like to thank everyone that offered help, advice and support. We want to also apologize for being tardy in our response.

First we would like to confirm that we are still in love with #148 and the LIL'SNOOZY team can not be matched.
The main concern (laminate separation) was fixed and continues to remain stable and no longer a problem.
The small leak continues (small amounts of water under the sink - can not find source) but the expert design of the LIL'SNOOZY has made it not problematic.
Our new concerns seem to be the same as other owners and that is the condensation, and the sticky white interior surface.
We also suspect that the flooring will need to be replaced with a material that ''breaths'' and dries under it. A hint of questionable "mold" has appeared around the edge of the original flooring in front of the door.

We would like to thank the Smoak team for a great product and service.

Glad to hear everything has turned out well. I anticipated good results from the Smoak team. I have found them to be very customer oriented. After owning our Snoozy for a year and having pulled it over 6K miles I feel they have a superior product to all the other popular brands of glass trailers I have seen and researched. I do have to say here that I have yet to see an ESCAPE which have I read very good things about on this forum. After talking to owners of other popular brands that I have seen it is apparent that all brands have their pros and cons. It is my belief that the small cons I have experienced with the Snoozy to be far less serious than I have heard from owners of those other brands that I did see.

I agree with Bill, we have had a few problems too but I believe no brand is going to be perfect. Bottom line, I'd buy another one.

We have had a few leaks but the is no structural wood anywhere so no worry about rotten floors.

A possible source of dampness under the sink is water that splashes onto the countertop and then runs down the AC wiring hole in the counter top next to the sink. It could also be leaking through the joint between the countertop and wall. We swapped the short faucet that came with the trailer for a taller one. That helped somewhat with the splashing but its still impossible to wash dishes without getting the counter all wet.

We have condensation, too, but that's physics - high humidity indoors condenses on cold walls. You cant expect much insulation from 3/8" of foam between the skins. Carpeting on the walls (aka rat fur) might help but brings its own set of problems. Everything is a compromise. We started cooking on a gas hot plate and later switched to electric. The gas puts a noticeable amount water vapor in the air as a product of its combustion. The induction hot plate made a big difference in indoor humidity and waste heat. The initial stickiness of the interior gel coat seems to have improved with age.

I haven't noticed any mold under the linoleum flooring but I wouldn't be surprised if its there. The fridge accumulates ice on the cooling plate which melts and runs out the door and onto the floor after the fridge is turned off. Maybe no flooring at all, just a nice paint job on the gel coat would be a better solution. We were going to glue down a wood floor but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Do you have the vent on the back of the trailer? I wonder if leaving that vent open a bit while the trailer is not in use would help reduce moisture issues. I set my trailer up with vent covers on the top vents (I have 2) so i can leave them open all the time.

Best I can recall, it was late spring of 2011. Right after I bought some other brand.
