The height increase looks like even more than you would get by going to a straight axle, but maybe that and a spring mount change would account for it.

I called the local Bigfoot dealer. The sales guy there was familiar with the Extreme, but said they would not be available for some time. He had no technical information, and I think all he has to go on are the same photos we're looking at. He also wondered about the practicality of the brush guards, since they could catch on the very branches they are supposed to be guarding against, and rip holes in the shell.

By the way, he suggesting that if you really want off-road ability, you want an Earthroamer (no, he doesn't sell them). For us "lightweight moulded fiberglass RV" fans, note that Earthroamer has supplemented their line of heavyweight F-450/550-based models with a little Jeep-based unit, the EarthRoamer XV-JP. Even this little one is much more expensive than a Bigfoot trailer, but it's half the price of its big brother...

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

Well that sounds almost as nice as having a New Horizons custom-built, but I would have to borrow some serious dinero from one of those wealthy 30 year-olds someone mentioned was buying these things!

Nice! Do all 21' & 25' have solid sprung axles?

IIRC all Bigfoot trailers have leaf spring suspension, except for the "L'il Bigfoot" 13.

I agree that the trailer looks like a 17.5 Gaucho with cosmetic and trim changes. I wonder if the changes were made in a custom shop, as there was quite a lot of unsold inventory when Bigfoot Industries went under in Nov 2008. I've also heard of a Bigfoot 17.5 with a rear dinette which doesn't seem to be on the BigfootRV.com website either. Bigfoot is said to be beginning trailer building once again, but I haven't seen any inventory. Just campers.

I think we've resurrected a dinosaur thread here from summer '07!

Perhaps the archives should be read-only. Then we wouldn't see so many resurected threads.

Sometimes we have new things to add to an old topic, like the interiors and exterior paint threads. I'd rather people pay attention to the posting dates.... YMMV

I followed Bigfoot for sale classified ads studiously for a couple of years while I was selling one trailer then subsequently looking for another. If any Bigfoot trailer came up for sale I knew about it. There was a Craigslist posting for a 17 foot extreme in Palm Springs about a year and a half ago. Several good photos. I wish I had copied the ad. There was a significantly different interior finish. I did not like the brush guards added to the front as it looked to me like they could snag limbs and cause more problems than they solve. Then I remember one posted for sale by a dealer in Wyoming around the same time. It seems like it may have been a 21 foot. What I am saying is that these are extremely rare. They never did appear on the Bigfootrv web site. I doubt if over three of them were ever manufactured.

Well I guess I am "that" 30 year old they were looking for. Cause I am the one that bought the one in Casper, WY. I don't know how many were made. It has been a great camper for us.
Pics are in my profile if interested.
