Here's the successor to our previous Bigfoot 17.5CB. It's a 2005 Bigfoot 21RB.
Let me know what you all think even if it's to point out any flaws.

Looks great Steve...

Are those outside speakers i see, and fiberglass spare tire cover?? Looks like its loaded with all the options..


The only problem i see, is that its not being towed behind your truck yet.

Thanks Phil! Yes, it has the factory outside speakers and fiberglass spare tire cover. I'm not sure about the need or want for the speakers but they're there.

Soon to be traveling along Interstate 10.

Nice looking trailer. It has the Phat ladder. The awning looks like it needs a good cleaning.

Thanks Bob! Not only the Phat ladder but it also has the Maggie Rack instead of the typical wrap around rack. I don't know if I like it or not yet but on the surface it seems a little more versatile, especially with the availability of the Thule and Yakima accessories. Yes, the awning is dirty. So is the rest of the exterior.

Beautiful Bigfoot! I like the "skookum" ladder and I would bet that you will find that you enjoy the outside speakers in the right environment. Have fun with it!

Congratulations! It needs a good bath and polish, other than that it's a beauty!

Congratulations’ Steve,

We really like our Bigfoot 21RB travel trailer. You should consider joining the Bigfoot Owners Club and come to this year’s annual rally in Colorado.

Steve has been a member over there, since he had his 17ft

Way 2 go Steve! You'll like the extra room moving up from the 17'. Let us know how you find towing the larger BF.....

Thanks everyone for the replies. Now all we have to do is pick up the trailer. Our last one took us up to Portland, a distance over 1100 miles from San Diego. The 21RB is in the opposite corner of the country and about twice the distance. It looks like there is at least one rally along the way. Hopefully our timing will allow attending one of them.

Phil is correct. We have been members of BOCI since owning our 17.5 Bigfoot.

Skookum? Another word added to my vocabulary. So far it's been fun trying it out.

I have to admit we struggled with the decision to buy either a Bigfoot 25RQ or the Bigfoot 21RB. The sleeping arrangement with the 17.5 was the only issue with us. The trailer was almost perfect otherwise. It was easy to tow and had all of the amenities we needed. And the construction quality was top notch save the cabinetry. We're hoping the 21RB will pick up the slack.

I mentioned earlier that our new to us 21RB has a Maggie Rack, manufactured by the same company that makes the Phat ladder, and that it is designed to accommodate Thule and Yakima accessories. That got me to wondering if anyone uses the top of their trailer to store stuff. Has anyone used one of those enclosed carriers for roof storage?

Steve, I'm curious to see the replies on this as I have never observed anyone using the top rack on a BF to store anything. The rear ladder option however seems to be a popular spot on many RV's to hang another...... ladder.
