Dave & Paula's Lil Snoozy mods in progress.

We sold our Scamp 13 Deluxe and ordered a Lil Snoozy "our way". Started with surge DISC brakes, installed air conditioner 6" lower to make room for larger overhead cabinets, MaxxFan instead of the Fantastic Fan, HEHR jaousey windows (also 6" shorter than standard Snoozy windows), 12 volt Truck Fridge,
sprayer style kitchen faucet. I added 3 12"x12"x36" overhead cabinets with shelves on each end, and relocated the microwave up over the flush mounted 2 burner propane cook top. I added and a custom frame mounted spare tire rack, & have yet to mount the 100 watt flexible solar panel, propane water heater, and a Propex furnace. Many personal touches yet to come.

It looks great ! We hope to see it in person soon. I'm thinking the rear door set up will be really nice.

Really nice re-design.
I like your cabinet setup better than the stock.
Makes for much cleaner counter top.

I see they moved the door latch.
Good idea.

Wow! It looks great. Bigger cabinets and the microwave up too are a much better use of space that 6" higher windows. I see you added shelf brackets to support the m-wave and larger cabinets. Good idea.

I don't know how much $ this would add to the Snoozy price but I also think it is a lot better than the stock configuration.

Thank you all for the positive feedback. I am having fun doing all the things to make it "US". The clock was a must have, as I have been working out inside the Snoozy in 108 degree temps. Today I installed Phlip-it latches on all the doors & drawers and was able to close the Snoozy up and turn on the air
conditioner, although not cold, it did help make it tolerable. The morphing continues.

3 Round 1/4" thick disc plates were 1st welded to the frame to distribute the forces on the frame. 1.5" 1.20 wall DOM was bent to hug the body's profile while keeping the spare tire aligned with the tire on the ground. I know of at least one person that has mounted the tire using bolts through the body but used plywood inside to distribute the load.
I hope this helps.

I don't know how much it would add either, as the people who make the cabinets for Snoozy were not interested in doing this for us at any price. I did keep the original two cabinets (one over head & one upright) and did not have them installed, as they only were going to credit me only $100.00 if they kept them.
I thought that I could possibly use them in some other application.
