Getting ready to order a Lil Snoozy

I'm putting in my order for a lil snoozy. Anyone out there have a lil snoozy already?? any advice on extras to order?? What did the pocono rally people think of the lil snoozy??

I just sold my 16 foot scamp. I dearly loved the scamp, but hate that they never upgrade and fix some of the known problems with their trailers. Scamp -- why can't you get rid of all the rivets?? Those little caps over the rivets don't age well, what a pain.... I also wish there was better storage in the scamp, wish the front door fit the scamp better.

I've been searching for awhile, wanting to upgrade my fiberglass trailer. Just want a trailer that will last and last, and has less maintenance to take care of

Or the infamous scamp door gap at the bottom. They sure sell fast and hold their value though. Well, we need a snoozy owner here so it sounds like you may have to take the lead and be the first one so we can harass you with a ton of questions about it ha ha. I sure like that they have no wood in the floor. Keep us posted on the buying process and how it all goes for you. We would love to hear.

I poked around in Lil' Snoozy at the Midatlantic Egg Fest, and BOY OH BOY what a nice trailer. Keeping in mind I am no expert! those guys have put together a really thoughtful design. I love the flip-up kitchen window, I love the giant bed, I love the easy-to-get-to front outside-access storage compartment.

Jen, so when you touch the walls, they are white foam with no vinyl, is that correct? Is the floor bare fiberglass like a boat deck or did it have carpet laid down? Did it have a tv on that counter top wall that has no window? Thanks.

Lil Snoozy was at the Poconos rally this past weekend and I went thru it thoroughly. First off, if you want any propane, he will install but you will need to make the final connection. In other words he will pipe everything and bring the hose to the tongue, but you will need to connect it to your own tank. His insurance does not allow propane connections. If you want all electric, there is no issue. The frame is galvanized, a plus because it will not rust. Disc brakes, a plus. Surge or electric brakes, depends if you have a controller. Huge back door with screen, cassette toilet is real nice, you can empty it in a restroom toilet. The walls/floor are about 3/4" thick with foam, maybe R-9
side window opens out, nice wood work finish, leather sofa and queen size bed. There is also a large storage area under the bed, accessible from both inside and outside. Discount is still available as 25 have not been sold.
Options I would want, another window opposite the dinette, another window by bed, window in bath for ventilation. Awning is definitely needed, side or back of both.

Vinyl floors, you can put down your own carpet, no tv, it is an option, I'd rather have another window which can be had. Walls are white, real neat electrical set up which you can see in one of the rally pictures.

I think Jim answered most of those questions, but about the floor, Nick had a vinyl flooring laid down.

Come to think of it, a bed-area window would definitely be nice.

There was no TV installed - I am guessing you would supply your own. You could get an additional window there, alternatively, if I remember correctly.

Just keep the frame away from winter road salt.

Ken C- Frrom what I have read, bear in mind I have not seen one in person, the inside walls are fiberglass gel coat. The entire structure is a foam core fiberglass sandwich. So no exposed foam. Please feel free to correct me, those with first hand experience, if I am wrong.

There are some pictures under the Rally section. The cross section I saw had the exterior gel coat and interior wall covering with a 3/4" foam core sandwiched in between. There is no wood or aluminum frame inside the walls. All the interior finished wood is free standing and attached to the floor vs rivets thru the walls or screws to framing. Because the compressor is outside, all noise and the water remains outside.

I started a yahoo group for people interested in the lil snoozy, to share thoughts if anyone is interested in joining.

Can't wait......
