Good luck,

Welcome, Richard.
It has been a lot of fun being in on the early development of the LiL Ones. Amy and I were seasoned backpackers and van campers in Colorado before moving to Charleston, SC. Never had a trailer, but learned real fast and did a 7200 mile trip with our Lil Boozy this past summer to Nova Scotia.

I want to bring my trailer up to you this winter to upgrade the a/c to the 8000 btu with cover. I will contact Alan to see when is a good time, but perhaps this is now your area of concern.

Let me know. I enjoy any excuse to visit the factory and see what's new in Snoozyville.

Best of Luck and

Happy Trails

Rumor has it.......

Hey Ken,

Yes, SusieNC did a great job summing up the story. My Dad and Alan have known each other for quite some time working with fiberglass, 20+ years. When the opportunity presented itself, I gladly joined Alan at Lil Snoozy becoming partners. We will transition over the next 5 -10 years while working together to build the Lil Snoozy Brand. It's been an exciting opportunity so far and we are looking forward to many great things ahead. Thanks for the warm welcome!

By the way, you would not by chance be related to the Mickle clan in and around Harrisburg, PA, would you? It was my grandmother's maiden name.

Rick
I agree, the site is great and an amazing information avenue for all parties. No relatives in PA that I'm aware of!

Thanks,

RM

I don't understand the part about not having propane. Alan, while he does not carry the necessary insurance required to install propane, will make your trailer propane ready.
This is not cumbersome at all. He builds the bracket on the front of the trailer for your tank and upon receiving the template for your stove makes your counter to top ready to bolt in your stove.
You then simply take your trailer down the road to a propane company and they run your lines, hook up, run safety checks and you are set to go. All for a very nominal cost.

Not having propane in a new trailer would be kind of a turnoff for me. If the manufacturer is not willing to install the propane themselves, could Lil'Snoozy not send the trailer out to this local expert for propane installation (tanks, lines, stove, furnace, water heater, etc) prior to releasing the trailer to its new owners so that, in effect, it does come with propane?

I don't think Alan can go as far as you ask and again due to insurance reasons. But, as I said, it didn't take much more than an hour to have my propane hooked up by the propane experts once Alan made the trailer propane ready, and it was very inexpensive.
I, too, find not having propane a turnoff and thus the reason I had it installed. Lil Snoozy is not the only fiberglass rv manufacturer that offers only electric for the same reasons.
I found in my search for a new trailer that some of these manufacturers won't tell you that they don't do propane because of insurance reasons. Instead, they go through a "song and dance" about how dangerous it is to have propane. They seem to forget that we see trailers everyday with propane and I can't even remember of having picked up the newspaper and read of one blowing up (not that it never has happened).

Transition over a number of years..........that sounds good.
No I won't feel like an orphan..........LOL
to the Forum. Hope to see a lot of you on here
if time permits. It's always good to dialogue with the builders.
I hope to make a return to the nest if time and weather permit.
I have #161. No name yet but have referred to it as the "Leper"
because of finish issues.

I feel that we are in good hands.

Welcome to the Forum Joe. Glad you have joined us.

The fresh water tank and pump are under the couch.
But that could be moved under the bed. Except for one thing.
I don't have the exact dimensions, but think the couch is five feet long.
I can get the dimensions if you need them. And also side of Snoozy
has a taper to it. Not sure if there would be room for the top of the
bed/combo as tall as it will probably be.

You may need to shrink the queen bed to a full bed or a twin.

Here's the photo shoot I made of mine when I got it home if you
haven't seen it yet. Might give you some idea what may or may not
work. Snoozy will work with you if you wanted to leave things out, etc.

Thank you!

I am glad to know that Snoozy will work with me on making changes...a full size bed would create more room for us (we are a family of 5...six including my daughter's boyfriend). I was not able to view those pics...I do not have an account with the web site that I was directed to. Thank you for your time! The Snoozy may really fit my family's needs 😊

I think you would be better off if you bought a Snoozy and then built & stained your own wooden unit for the space. Or ask Snoozy about building and installing one like that. It sounds to me like the unit you linked to would be too wide and perhaps too high for the top bunk to be used. But I think the concept is good.

The Lil Snoozy will be challenged (it seems to me) by having to accommodate a family of 6! My husband, the dog, and I fit very well, but this is a small camper! What does anyone else think? Maybe it would work if everyone is very cooperative and calm!
