Here are some pics of the "Lil Snoozy" rally this past weekend. The first shot is at the factory in St. Mathews. There were supposed to be seven Lil Ones but only four made it. We made quite a stir at the campground. Could have been those mummy types that joined in our campsite.

While I have been planning the purchase of a 13 foot Scamp Deluxe I continue to search all trailer brands with the hope of getting just what I want. I have recently discovered lil snoozy and have made plans to visit the plant on December 23. Have you weighed your trailer? Weight is a concern. Also, with no front window, how do you find ventilation when sleeping with no air conditioning?

I have not weighed the trailer, but the manufacturer has. I think it's under 3000#.

We opted to install an additional window in the bed area, to match the one that comes standard. We liked the idea of cross ventilation. Haven't had a chance to test it, but with a fan in the bed area, it should be fine. Remember, it's a Full Quenn size matress, NOT a piece of 2" foam on a board!!

We often camp in the woods with no electricity. If I opt for the lil snoozy rather than the Scamp, we would also get the additional windows. I would hope under 3000#. It is advertised on the web site as 1900#. I asked though, because from what I am reading the Scamp generally runs about 30-40% more than it's advertised weight.

If thats the case then you may want to take a closer look at the features as the lil snoozy may not be the best trailer for your usage.

I wouldn't necessarily say that. There's always the generator option to power the microwave, water heater, and whatever else. Even without that though, one can use a portable 2-burner LP stove with 2 lb mini tanks for cooking and heating water. Or use Sterno, for that matter.

As for ventilation, a vent fan on low (running on the battery) will draw air nicely into bed area windows even when there is no breeze outside.

The choice of trailer amenties(sic) is all about camping style. There's lots of owners that use their trailers like hard sided tents... they only cook outside, etc. With interior LEDs and judicious battery monitoring.. an all electric trailer is perfect for them.

Hi: The trailer has a window type air conditioner in the rear next to the door. There is a window by the foot of the bed and you can also have one installed at the head of the bed. We have not purchased the trailer yet, as we are waiting for our 5th wheel to sell. The trailer weighs around 2000 lbs. It will vary as to what you put in it. The tongue weight is approximately 250 lbs. All these weights vary as to how you set it up. You have a choice of putting a generator & battery up front which will add weight. If you put more weight in the back the tongue weight will be less. We really enjoyed our trip to the plant. Allan Snoak showed us a lot of what they are doing. This man is full of ideas, but always looking for input from the customers. He was a real pleasure to talk to. We have also looked at the Scamp Deluxe both 13 and 16 foot. We like the idea of a Queen size bed that you don't have to take down and put up all the time. You really have to decide what you want in the camper. Lil Snoozy has a completely different approch. And after you think about it for a while, suddenly it hits you that this will work. I first thought I needed gas for the stove and the heater and the refrigerator. Ok, have you ever run out of bottle gas, and had to go find it in a strange area. If you use a generator, there are always gas stations. My next thought was cooking. Get an electric skillet, a crockpot, or a hot plate. Plus you have a microwave. Have you ever stopped at a rest area to eat, when the temperature is 100 degrees, it is hot in the camper. Fire up the generator recharge the refrigerator, start up the AC. Wow that cool. Well I'll stop rambling on. But, you can see we are hooked on the Lil Snoozy. Enjoy your trip to SC

Mike and Donna you are both correct - note I did use the word *may* :-). Agree a lot depends on how they like to camp, where and at what time of year. Yup generators are an option but there are an ever increasing number of places they are not permitted.

I know from camping in BC where few Provinical parks have ac that I would really have a hard time lasting more than a day or two without propane as an option. I have LED lights and a solar but it depends on sun to keep the battery charged up - something that is often missing on the wet coast. Without the sun, ac or propane to run the fridge & furnace on those two items would make short work on my battery power.
