Ron from Camping Country RV in Fountain Co brought one of the new 24' trailers to the Bigfoot Rally at Mount Rushmore last month. They're nicely done, if a bit eccentric. Lightweight they're not with a curb weight on the 24' of 6170 lbs and GVWR of 8800 lbs and on the 28' a curb weight of 7338 lbs and GVWR of 9840 lbs. They're also really, REALLY tall trailers. They're really well done and absolutely high quality; they're just not aimed at the market niche most of us look for.

I totally agree - just wanted people to know they are out there. Bigfoot quality is in a class of it's own compared to 90 percent of the other 300+ names. Personally I think the new ones are kinda ugly! And I'm down sizing......

Uh, no... I believe it's $57,000 USD!!!! I have a price and equipment sheet from the one I saw at Mt. Rushmore... I'll check it if I have the chance later today and let you know for sure...

Bigfoot already started moving away from moulded fiberglass construction years ago, with their utterly conventional Class C motorhomes. This new trailer line seems like a straightforward extension of that trend. I hope that the model designation (3000 series, versus the 2500 series moulded units) is not an indication that this construction is their only future; in the past, higher series numbers seemed to indicate generation, not technology, so 3000 would logically replace the current 2500.

I'm not criticising these new Bigfoot trailers - I'm sure they're well constructed and suit some buyers' desires. It's just that this type of generic box is already more than common enough - we don't need more at the expense of a moulded unit.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Actually, Brian, the series number indicates construction method. The 1500 series has 1 inch of foam insulation between the glass layers. The 2500 has an inch and a half and uses different molds than the 1500 series. The 3000 series construction is used in their motorhomes and now the new trailers. They are a fiberglass/insulation/fiberglass sandwich wall of a design that is thicker yet. The 4000 series motorhomes are built on the Kodiac chassis. They abandoned the 1500 series in the trailers in '04 with the introduction of the '05 25B175CB and G trailers in the 17.5' length. There may yet be pickup campers built using the 1500 series materials; I don't know for sure either way.

I'm still waiting for the 21' Casita that was rumored over two years ago.

Thanks for the clarification, Roger. I was thinking of a succession, because in trailers a given size has only existed in one series at a time.

Yes, they do still build 1500-series campers. As their campers page shows, they actually do 1500, 2500, and 3000 campers - and indeed the 3000 is not moulded fiberglass, supporting the series-as-construction-indicator system.

The 3000 series camper page confirms that 3000 indicates the construction, and provides more detail. This is - suprising to me - a system with injected foam, not foam board.

I'm with you. But I'm afraid those stories are just that - RUMORS. I don't see Casita bulging. It sounds to me like lots of people are ready for a bigger one. What are we to do? D
