Sailboat Jealous of Snoozy

Well it's about time I introduced myself. I have been following this site for about a year trying to figure out what I wanted. Sailing is a little confined with our lake is 45í low due to this extended drought, so time to see some new ports. Much thanks to all the open and sharing people on the FGRV site, they'll never know what a big help you were in making our decision.

Another major factor in our decision process was Alan & Nicholas and the Smoakin Concepts team they were so patient and accommodating in making this build truly ours!
(To make it really personal they all autographed her for me)

As many of you, I just canít leave anything stock I have to make it unique and personal. I will keep yíall up to date on Mods and things learned about our caravan. To start with I had to have the graphics match my TUG and again the Snoozy team and their graphics contractor worked with me to get the image I was looking for. (Donít want to count the e-mails)

For more images of our adventure back to Texas, mods and the start of our travels picture album go to our registry:

Well here we are! Yíall are stuck with us, expect more posts and comments from this new RVer. Hope to see some of you at the
Bluebonnet Rally @ Bandera, Tx this April
(Our first big gathering canít wait)

Happiest of New Years to All, Itís starting off Great for us,

Welcome to the Fiberglass Forum! I, and I'm sure many others here, look forward to reading more of your travel ventures and modifications. Many of us are very curious about the Little Snoozy and want to learn more. I refer to my trailer as a "land yacht" since it's so much like sailing on land.
Happy Camping!
Gilda

Hi Tommy and Linda, I was racking my brain (not a hard feat) trying to figure out where I saw your tug/tow combo before: Like y'all we love the windows The yellow really stands out and it's one of my very favorite camping colors as it reminds me of the

Donna,
Ya caught us, thought it was time we came out of the closet. Iíve been foraging around your site for a while now, itís been a big help.

Just wanted to share again,
Just had to have one when viewed CindyLís Christmas present.

http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...brv-55793.html

If anyone is needing a heater. (little heavy but this time of year, it's OK). It truly is better looking in use than when I saw it in the store. Canít believe the color, I painted it, matched our counters so close, total accident, I just wanted the wood stove color.

Thanks again for the welcome!

Hi! I'm Ruti, new to this forum and a SC resident. I want a Lil Snoozy so bad I can taste it. My husband is not on board though. I enjoy following your adventures and love everything about the Lil Snoozy, especially the layout. Do you have the big screen TV in yours? If so, can you watch TV by wireless internet, such as Netflix, Hulu? Love those old movies! Happy camping!

Ruti, the American Boler trailer looks neat too but nobody will say when it will come to market. I didn't know if you have seen it or not so Just passing it along since it caught my eye.

Hi Ruti,
We chose to go for the extra window instead of big screen space. We use a large screen lap top for movies and internet streaming, when at campsites with wireless. We love having the extra window especially with the gas supports to hold it open.
Having so much fun modifying to our needs. Latest mod is a Generator and front storage area cover. Hope you can talk the hubby into one soon, good camping weather just around the corner.

Personally, I have never been a big fan of the Snoozy, but I have to admit that front storage area looks really kool!

Thanks Dave,
I'm glad I have a friend who is a sail & canvas maker.
I like the layout of the escape 19' was just too heavy for my current tow vehicle.
Have been thinking about an FJ as my daily driver are you happy with yours and what kind of mileage do you get. My SSR gets about 17mpg hywy and 14mpg towing hywy (avg).
Thanks again for the compliment
Tommy

I have an FJ and have towed a Casita with it and been very happy. If you Google FJ Forum you'll find a place where there's a whole section of postings on pulling various rigs with an FJ. My mileage wasn't too bad, about 14 mpg with a Casita and is about 20 w/o. Hope that helps. Be sure to put a sway bar on it.

Deryk,

Just curious, but why did you buy your ParkLiner instead of another boat?

Thanks y'all for the FJ info and direction.
I have found several for sale in yellow to keep the Tug & Tow color scheme going.
Again Thanks for sharing your experiences and knowledge,
Tommy
