Hi Denny, I'm fairly new here but wanted you to know, as with all your upgrades, I really enjoy reading about the additions to your Lil Snoozy. My wife and I are leaning towards the Snoozy and had the opportunity to meet Richard and tour the factory last month. We were really impressed with it and feel it will be the perfect fit for us. It's a little out of our price range so I've decided that we will order ours about half finished and will do the rest ourselves over time. I grew up building houses with my dad and actually built my home so I have enough experience to feel comfortable finishing it up and adding our own touches as you've done. Can't wait to see what you add or change next. Keep up the great work and keep us posted on how your Snoozy's doing!

Hi Greg, I bought ours without the couch, bed, battery and charger.

One if the reasons we chose the Snoozy was the composite construction. You can fasten stuff to the walls or ceiling anywhere. It's a great blank canvas to make your own.

Be sure you post pics.

Will do. I've already sent several designs to Richard showing him how we want the kitchen side constructed. Just the framing. I'm going to build all the doors and drawers myself. We will be adding the Truck fridge but relocating it next to the entry door and moving a larger sink over where the fridge was. My wife doesn't like the idea of the sink sitting up in the corner and the faucet sideways. Other changes will include a large pullout drawer under the bed, two large pullout drawers under the sofa (going to eliminate the fresh water tank), and all drawers in the lower entertainment cabinets. I'm trying to eliminate any bending or squatting down since I've recently had total knee replacement in both knees. Basically we are having just the framing for things inside so they can run the electrical for me. But, we are still a good ways away from an actual purchase. Still have two boys in college, but we are definitely holding out for the Snoozy. Thanks for the reply and happy camping. I enjoy your other site too.

Here's the layout we are considering for the kitchen side of the Snoozy. Of course the picture doesn't show the sink or fridge in their new location but you get the idea about the wider center cabinet to accomodate the microwave and save our backs Windows would need to be ordered slightly narrower in width to make room for the cabinet. Just one of many ideas we are toying around with before beginning the build. Photoshop & Illustrator are wonderful tools for visually working out ideas.

Here is the way we were able to move the microwave up, by using HEHR crank out windows instead of the slider windows, that were 6" shorter in height, so large upper cabinets could be used. Snoozy factory had to install the air conditioner 6" lower than their usual install.
Planning is fun isn't it?

BAMA don't think I can make it. What year Snoozy?

Dave: Your ideas inspired me. My wifey likes the center cabinet so I am working around that.

The best idea will be relocating our sink so it's in the normal position and not up in the corner sideways. I will also install a larger & deeper sink bowl too.

Deb: That is a nice layout. Has it already been built? We are considering the Froli bed springs too. Dave brought this nifty product to my attention and it would make for a lighter bed weight so one could enter the under bed storage area from the top ~ with the help of hydraulic shocks.

I had to travel 2000 miles one way. Greg to answer your PM, I don't know how to attach my pictures there, but here is a shot of both sides. The windows can be ordered in any size you desire.
