Had our shakedown trip this weekend, 2 nights at a local lake. Weather was quite mild, so was able to relax a bit; there were a few squashed bugs on the front of the trailer, so we ended up washing the trailer and applied some fibreglass wax.
I made special instructions to Bigfoot
when I placed the order:
1) make provisions for two 6 volt batteries together with the 30 lb propane
tank. As you will see, that was not accomplished, with the two batteries at the front of the trailer and two 20 lb bottles fitted in front. The dealer is going to install a piece of ready rod to hold the tanks down.
2) do not install cupboard doors where microwave
would be installed. This was accomplished
3) do not install the drawers under the front queen bed. This was also done, with a great amount of storage space for large items such as my LaFuma recliners.
You will notice that Bigfoot
now puts some checker plate at the front of the trailer - good idea to protect against gravel, etc.
I included a photo of the front underside of the trailer when the optional generator
would be located.
All in all, I am very pleased with the trailer, with a very efficient furnace
(only ran for about 2 to 3 minutes at a time). Fit and finish was first class, excellent job on the fibreglass work and interior wood work.
It is now back at the dealer, getting my solar panel
installed and attending to a few adjustments and repairs.
My last two trailers has A/C and microwave
; really of little value for dry camping
. I opted for two fantastic fans, but the trailer is roughed in for both the microwave

I guess I am now again a fibreglass rv owner, and only need to work _ years to pay for it
