Looking for advice

We are looking to buy a used fiberglass RV, I first fell in love with the Lil Snoozy after seeing it in a video, but research has shown me that finding a used one may be impossible. Searching in FiberglassRV site has been one of my best sources and I can't believe how much information I've learned in three day here over my search of cyber space on by own for months. So I thought I would ask a question. I saw a Casita Independence trailer with two twin beds. I really like that idea because of the ease of getting in and out of bed. Also the extra standing room between beds for getting dressed. Can anyone recommend another trailer no bigger then 19' that has twin beds?

Not exactly. The Independence, Lil Snoozy, and the larger Oliver Elite II are the only traditional side-by-side twin offerings.

Several small rear-entry units- Hunter Compact Jr., Trailswest Campster, Little Joe- work as twins, but they aren't self-contained.

Casita Liberty models (16' and 17') can be configured as narrow twins, and some owners have found ways to make them a little wider. They're more common in the used market- been around a lot longer than the Independence.

And of course side dinette models could be considered "twins" if one person slept on the back bed and one on the side bed. You could even reconfigure the back bed into a U-shaped dinette (minus the big table), with a single bunk across the back and you'd still have the wings for seating even when both beds are in use.

With small trailers you sometimes have to think outside the box!

Fiberstream are also easily used in a 2 Twin configuration but likely as tough or tougher to find than a Snoozy too!

Wait a minute, are you saying the Lit Snoozy come in a twin bed model???? I haven't seed that, but if it did I would order one of them new. So far hands down Lil Snoozy is my favorite.

Yes Fiberstream, just looked at that lay out. Thank you, looks great but as you say that may be like looking for a nettle in a hay stack.

I am, and they do (or at least they used to). Give them a call!

Good catch! I forgot about that one, and it does have a bathroom.

Liberty deluxe conversion

I am getting filthy working on my extension of the Casita Liberty Deluxe to wider twins but still convertible to a king. We love the versatility and the wet bath. 17', and 3500 lbs fully loaded.

Thank you that is great info, I'll call them and start thinking new., after all from what I see there's not much savings in buying used Lil Snoozy anyway. if you can find a used one that is. .

Our amerigo has two "twin" beds. One is U-shaped (permanent) at the back, and the other is up front (at a right angle to the 1st with the closet in between) serving as a permanent settee during the day. The two "twin" beds possibility was the reason we got this trailer, or the main reason. We both have to sleep alone (or with the pugs, but that's another issue).

We'll use a pop-up table between the ends of the U, the seats.

It's turning out well, after nearly 9 months of Paul's hard labor.

But, yes, the amerigo has two bed areas. It originally came with two gauchos that pulled out to make 50" and a 40" beds, but we didn't need that much bed. Just two separate areas. We call it our two-bedroom unit.

I noticed that they don't say anything about the twin bed version on their website any more. Maybe they will still make one if you ask nicely.

There was a used one for sale last year. The owners eventually decided not to sell, but the last post appeared to leave the door open. It couldn't hurt to send them a PM and see if they'd be interested in selling now. Here's a link to the ad:
