For those of you concerned that this is a real business look here:

South Carolina Secretary of State:*Search Business Filings

It lists owner name and address as well as inception date. Matthews, SC is in the mid-portion of the state geographically.
Ok, we have you, who just joined the group now so you can vouch for the company. We have Allan Smo (Smo, Smoak, any relation?) who joined in December so he could vouch for having towed the prototype. Over in Scampers there's Kip who joined in December and now vouches for having seen photos of the prototype. An interesting group of witnesses.

Nicholas, since you were willing to let one person see those photos, why not one or two more. We can tell you're a good natured guy, so let us impose on you a bit. Why not Private Message the pics to one or two senior members on the forum, people who have been around for quite a while (I nominate Donna for one). I'm sure we can be discreet and not distribute the photos further, but only tell what we've seen... photos that show your actual bullet-shaped prototype FG trailer. Since you were willing to let Kip see, what's one or two more? You want to build up our confidence, right?

Well, OUCH and thanks for that rousing welcome, Mike. Second post in and I've offended.

Wouldn't know Nicholas or Al if I bumped into them at the local Wally-World up here in Podunk.

Other than appreciating the conversation, the idea of proposed product and the possibility of new industry in my state I ain't gotta dog in this race, as they say around here......sorry if I stepped on toes yer toes, dude.

Mike, if I'm the Donna you're speaking of, I'm not sure I want that responsibility. But, thank you for the vote of confidence However, if you just want me to receive pictures so I can attest the trailer is actually being built? That I could do, but not pick and choose who should see them. I think that's up to the manufacturer.

I know how hard it is to be patient when a new brand of trailer is being built. It's doubtful I'm the only one who was anticipating the Escape several years back. In that build, Reace and Tammy (Escape Trailer Industries) did share pictures as it was going from prototype to an actual trailer. Maybe Nicholas will change his mind and will share with all of us too ...

J, I don't think Mike meant it as you perceived the statement.

You need to know, as a newbie, this fine forum of terrific fiberglass owners, have been burned more than once by folks that have joined with less than stellar intentions. Typically acting like outsiders excited by a new product of something desired by a vast number of molded trailer owners, only for us to find out the new member DID have a vested interest (financally) in the success of said product. The whole process came across to all of us as underhanded and a bit slimy. All we've ever asked is for people to be honest. We don't bite. But can bite back when things aren't on the up and up.

Having been on forums before, I know that they can be trolling grounds for all kinds. I understand being leery....one I have inhabited for a long time has been occasional feeding ground for excerpting information from vulnerable people for inclusion in books they were writing as supposed comrades-in-arms without being up front about it.

Still...it smarts to be new and have a senior member take a swipe at you without foundation. I reckon we won't know what Mike meant unless he says.

Y'all have a good evening I hear road maps calling.

2yax2go, welcome to the forum and I hope you won't take it personally.

Donna, I did indeed mean that you would be a good one to view the photos and discuss them, and I believe you would honor the intent of keeping the images from the general public while providing an unbiased review of their contents.

Thank you, Mike, that was very gracious.

As far as Lil Snoozy goes, I reckon we'll see in a few months time if they make their go live date if we see them on the highways. I sincerely wish them well in this endeavor.

In the mean while I've been using my snow day to roam the forums and soak up knowledge for our first real outing in Li'l Scamp as soon as the weather warms a mite. My optimum operating temperatures are as generous as they used to be.

There's an RV show in our capital city Columbia, SC :

SCRVDA SUPER SHOW AND SALE
PRESENTED BY THE SOUTH CAROLINA RV DEALERS ASSOCIATION

4 BIG DAYS
AT THE SC STATE FAIRGROUNDS - COLUMBIA, SC
FEBRUARY 18 - 21, 2010
10 AM - 7 PM THURS - SATURDAY NOON - 5PM SUNDAY


Maybe we'll see Lil Snoozy represented there.



Although, I have to admit I don't think I've seen "Eggs" at these before...can't be sure cuz we weren't in the market for one when we went to them before buying Li'l Scamp...we may have passed them by without even a nod (see red face here) . We're sort of accidental Scampers...which is a story for another day.

Mike, I for one was wondering when someone would put up a little radar.


Personally, I wish no one harm when pursuing their dreams of business ownership. But I question hoopla, that isn't backed up. So only time will tell. I wish LiL Snoozy the best of luck in their pursuit of the American Dream. But I for one will have to hold off on running threw the streets praising something that I have not seen for myself.

Please understand I am not saying that LIL Snoozy isn't gonna be the next brightest thing in the egg world. But until it's hatched, I would caution falling into the hype.

So 2yax2go, First off, Welcome to our lil glass world. Thanks for your opinion on the business venture. I hope you understand why a as, you put it Senior member would question. Actually any smart consumer would have questions. Not sure if you noticed but Mike is "Egg shopping" personally I think it's great that he is questioning a un-proven product.


Personally for me, I have a ton of questions. That I suppose only time will tell. As far as pictures? I personally understand why a new business adventure would hold off on it, kinda, but as a former business/business's owner I would question why the approach currently being taken. Just me!

Thanks Robin!

While there has been a filing of a company name, that in no way proves anything about the viability of the company. Anyone can file papers if they know how.

It's been two days and no pictures. Nicholas has had his chance to prove up. Game over. In my opinion there are no pictures, there is no prototype, and no trailers will be produced. Hopefully no one will ever send in any deposits or down payments to anyone without seeing or touching real FG trailers.

I would like to caution everyone that this is the New Member / Welcome forum and should be treated as such. We don't to this point have hard and fast rules but in the interest of maintaining a friendly and civil discussion in this forum in particular, let's refrain from the following:

1. Insinuation that other forum members are shills.

2. Expressing demands (for photographic proofs, or anything else for that matter).

3. Making broad statements that impugn the reputation of others.

I've closed this thread and referred it to the administrators to make a decision about whether to reopen it.
