Lil Snoozy back?
I just drove by the plant where the Lil Snoozy was produced and there was a sign saying, “We’re Back” and another sign about a Snoozy II. Hope this is not a hoax

Hope they handle deposits a lot differently this time!

The manufacturers of the Lil' Snoozy galvanized trailer frame, Wesco, have reportedly resurrected the trailer as Snoozy II. There are periodic Facebook posts from the new owners about status but it still seems a bit in the future.

You know what they say...You Snooze you loose...

Yep they are back. Not open yet. We had one on order & when we lost out, we bought a Casita. Because of that we found out an all electric camper would not of worked for us. My wife loves the closet. We have used the propane more than we thought. It's nice to use it during a rest stop, use the propane for hot water or heat while resting while you travel. Best advice I have read was to rent a camper & see what you like.

Yep, Lil Snoozy is back thanks to WESCO, the manufacturer of the galvanized undercarriage of the original Snoozy.

We met the new Snoozy team at the 2019 Camp Snoozy held at Charleston, SC. What we heard was impressive, especially when their immediate goal includes working with those folks who made a down payment for a Snoozy without having had the opportunity to take possession.

This is not connected to the class action suit in any way, but an honest offer by the owners of Snoozy II. Not sure how they progressed towards that goal, but it sounded sincere, especially when learning that the person in charge of WESCO trailers has been assigned to help resurrect Snoozy.

We also learned that one of the 1st steps was to rehire former Snoozy staff actually involved in building the original Snoozy.

My suggestion as a very happy 2016 Snoozy owner is to be patient and keep looking for Snoozy trailers with the new logo, namely Snoozy II.

FYI: the consensus of all Snoozy I owners attending the 2019 Camp Snoozy was very positive in terms of WESCO's general reputation.

By the way: Comments like "you Snooze, you loose" may sound funny to a few folks but not appropriate when a new comer on the block is offering to help without being obligated to do so. Perhaps it makes more sense to embrace positively the idea of ones down payment towards a Snoozy I being worth something towards a Snoozy II. Obviously working out those details is between Snoozy II and those still hoping to end up with a Snoozy, even if it is a II instead of none.

Thanks Karl for that excellent post.

Do you know anything about the original molds and if they had to either make new ones or do a lot of repairs to them? I seem to remember talk of that being a problem too. The trailer in the link in post #6 looks excellent. I wonder if that is a new finished Snoozy ll?

They are going to use the original molds. They did have to refurbish them. Their last post on FB indicated they had the factory prepped and were waiting on final material shipments. We don’t know yet about what they will do on deposits. They told us at The Charleston rally that the new Snoozy 2 will be a gray color. They are looking at producing off road and hunter versions as well as supporting the Lil Snoozy from the previous company.
