That's true, though I could see thermal windows on the option list at some point.

But I'm wondering- does the original Parkliner have unusual condensation issues, beyond what is normal for a single hull design with single pane windows?

I'd say you could solve any condensation issues by coming to Arizona... but lately it never seems to stop raining and snowing and sleeting...

Jon,
We have had ours since spring of 2014. After putting well over 26,000 miles under it and more than a coupe of snowy weekends we have never had a problem. Of course I do slightly crack open a window a bit.
I would expect it is no better or worse than others of similar construction.

Crud, how did that happen and how do I fix it? Oh well you get the idea.

Lil Snoozy is over 18 ft??...is that the inside or total length with tongue? I have towed my 3 horse trailer all over Florida and its certainly over 18' so I guess I cant complain, but was really trying for shorter to accommodate a new tug in the future( which I haven't purchased and still have to decide on a make & model) Currently using an 00 Expedition V10 gas, so I can pull just about anything! Trouble is.. It will pass anything except a gas station!
Lil Snoozy would require Propane additions and Theteford cassette( I think) plus additional storage cabinets where the "entertainment" section is. Ill do without the extra window there. worrying about the condensation issues is my biggest hold back.
Still looking at the Parkliner...not willing to invest in it yet until a few of the molds have been changed to reflect the issues noted at RV show( minor and most people wouldn't notice them but they drive me crazy so I will wait). Tom assured me these were in the works, but its a process and will take time.

Mitzi,
Could you please elaborate. Would be curious to know exactly how many "propane, butane, and Coleman fuel mishaps" you have experienced, the severity of injuries which resulted, and/or the degree of property damage or loss incurred. I am trying to understand how and if the exclusive use of electricity outweighs the advantages that the use of other fuels may provide, or the true danger inherent in the use of those fuels.

Colleen, the length of the Lil Snoozy is measured from the tongue to the 1 foot overhanging air conditioner in the rear. Condensation issues can be cured by opening a bedroom window slightly, or by what we and a couple others have done, and that's by using reflectix insulation covered by marine headliner in the bedroom area. If you like making your own floor plan, there is a Lil Hauley (empty shell Lil Snoozy) for sale on this site by Mike Magee.

CPW your mileage may vary. There are other people's and organizations privacy needs also here. Suffice it to say that what I went thru left me very happy to go all electric, even if I need to run the generator while boondocking.

Mitzi......I'm not asking you to violate anyone's privacy, or for you to provide the who, what, when, where, or why. All I am asking for is a generic description of events that have led you to believe propane is so dangerous, e.g., I saw someone light a propane stove and get badly burned or I saw a camping trailer blown to smithereens due to a propane leak. It has nothing to do with varying mileage. I, too, was involved in scouting for several years and never experienced a single dangerous situation with propane or Coleman fuel. Suffice it to say that I keep asking propane/liquid naysayers for their explanation simply because I want to understand and all I typically get are elusive answers or deflections of my question. I'm beginning to think that someone who refuses to answer a question about their condemnation of propane and/or other non-electric fuels may be making statements without justification. It appears a bit skeptical at the very least, maybe like yelling fire in a crowded theater. I have yet to have someone provide any valid evidence that I should avoid the use of these fuels and go all electric myself.
