I gave Lori a call.

Hi Lori: We recently purchased a Rockwood Hardside A frame. We found it is very easy to pull and put up. It is similar to an Aliner, but has more standard features, and is about $5,000 cheaper. We looked at the Snoozy also and liked it very much, but could not afford it at this time. We feel that we made a very good choice with our Aframe.

Lil snoozy

I vote for a lil snoozy for you. There is a queen size bed that is always a bed ( though one person has to move for the other to get out). There is a couch that folds down for another bed.

The refrigerator is very simple to replace if it ever breaks. There is a microwave that you can you to cook in bad weather. There is much more free space inside to move around. you can heat with a little ceramic heater, easy to replace if it breaks. There is a shower, or just use the facilities in the parks you camp in.

Sounds like boon docking wouldn't work for you. You can plug into shore power for electrical needs, like air conditioner, heater, refrigerator and microwave.

I like the ease of use of the cassette toilet.

Alan and Nicholas can help you with modifications.

Come visit me in Williamsburg Virginia and see for yourself a lil snoozy. I like the way the snoozy tows. I don't think there will be as much maintenance on a fiberglass trailer as other trailers. I had an rpod, great looking trailer, felt very flimsy.

Well I drove to Virginia today. I got the opportunity to see the Lil Snoozy! I met one of the members on this forum (what a nice and comfortable person to be around)! She had the patience for me to dig around. I like what I saw! I liked her extra cuz she tried to knock my husband in the head (and anyone that wants to do that to him is my kind of person)!!!

I was expecting the Lil Snoozy to be bigger on the outside (even though I knew the measurements). At the same time the inside seemed too big for the outside (even though I was actually in it)! Weird thing is... I think it might be too much room for us for the majority of the camping trips with just my daughter and me!!! There is a couch (as you all probably know). If you took the section with the couch out (the whole middle section) I think you'd still still be longer than the T@B.

I also saw my first ever Casita (in person) today. It was an older camper. I don't think I could stand up erect in it (even though I am only 5'5"-5'6")! It was locked up in a parking lot so I couldn't see in or try to stand in it. I realize the Casita's I saw online were taller, but this one was amazingly short! It was like "a little play house for a kids" height! It was so short even my daughter realized I wouldn't be able to stand straight in it! It was simply adorable! I felt a little intimidated/scared by the rivets on the outside of the Casita, but I wasn't at all intimidated by the fiberglass on the Lil Snoozy (probably because of the lack of rivets, plus the seam around the middle on the Lil Snoozy is covered with a rubber type strip that made me feel way more protected from water!

One thing that everyone that I have talked to (about the Lil Snoozy) agrees about is the Lil Snoozy's builders are willing to bend over backwards to try and help you get exactly what you want and make it right for you! One thing I don't understand is... is one campers fiberglass better than another campers fiberglass (minus the fact that some may not have any insulation like the U-Haul I read about on this site)?

I really enjoyed meeting Lori and her family and showing her my Snoozy. She gave me some invaluable tips on curtains, shades, etc. Thanks!

Note to self: remember that the kitchen window can open at about 100 miles an hour - be sure to warn others that they need to stand back - Sorry for the close call Randy!

Just a quick note. If you still like the teardrop setup, Little Guy is starting production on the clamshell T@b. They are going to be available starting in the Fall of this year. Here is their website.

Little Guy T@B Trailers

Mike and I seriously looked at a T@B Clamshell (Thor, not Little Guy), but it was just a couple of inches too short for him. Ironically, our teardrop has a bigger bed than the T@B.
