Will post some pics as soon as I figure out the process here. Actually, ruth covered it pretty well in the previous discussion. Ours is only slightly different, as they discover different ways to better assemble the trailers, they change a little over time. I hope they work out the "bugs" for the next batch of trailers, and let us know what changes are being made. We anticipate lots of interest when we go upstate next week.

It appears that the Lil Snoozy has no stove or furnace and carries no propane. Is it then designed to be all electrical? How will power be supplied to run the air conditioner, fridge, microwave? Is it assumed that the trailer will always be connected to shore power? (The 2000 watt generator won't be adequate for this.) Is it assumed that cooking will be done outside the trailer?

The lil snoozy can have propane added. I elected to go all electric. I plan to do my cooking outside on a portable propane cooktop and small weber grill.

The generator can run the air conditioner. I will have to turn off the AC to run the microwave. I can't have big power hogs on at the same time.

For the cooler camping, I'm gonna get a small electric heater. It feels well insulated, I prefer to be colder when I'm sleeping, so may not run that heater very much.

Had to pick and choose what extras to get. Chose the generator instead of propane. Wish I won the lottery, then i would have gotten both.

Actually, EggCamper is all electric. Either battery/solar or hookups. Years ago everything was propane-lights,heat,cooking,refer. Maybe there is a trend, but I do like the older ways.

LIGHTS were propane? That's curious.

We've been travelling from Michigan to and around Montana. Over 2000 miles so far and I was carrying our Honda 2000 watt generator on the tongue of our all electric Egg Camper. I'll never put the generator back on the tongue but will carry it in the truck. I had a propane bottle cover over it and it still got covered in dust plus the cover scuffed the generator quite badly so it looks old. It's new and has not yet been started. As for the propane lights, yes they were used quite a bit and one big downside of use in summer is all the heat they put out.

Yes, they do put out heat and smoke sometimes. In the winter they were cozy, no heat needed, in summer time you were in the dark! too hot

Bob,
We have the same generator, which we keep in the box, mounted on the tongue of the egg camper.The rails, that were put on at the factory for the generator, are now mounted in the bottom of the box using the same bolt holes plus there is still a lot of room in the box for odds and ends.Of course we do not run the generator when it's in the box.

Could you describe what kind of "box" you're using? What are the dimensions, and do you remember where you got it? I've been thinking about a heavy duty tool box set up, as well. Thanks

Hey, Don. We are thinking about getting a Lil Snoozy too, and I was reading the postings. I saw your link to Airstream FM and just want to say thanks! I have always loved easy listening music - bought my first FM radio in the late 60's so I could have it in the background. Take care, Ken
