Trailer: Bigfoot
Posts: 8

Hi, I'm Bill, we are in the process of purchasing a 1988 Bigfoot (19 foot)

We love it! It's replacing our Fleetwood Hybrid which was written off in an accident.
I'm looking forweard to camping and tinkering, so hopefully you lot can help!

I'm a mechanic by trade, living on Vancouver island (livi in Nanaimo, work in Parksville)

One wife, 2 boys (4 and 8)

That's about it... towing duties shared by 1992 Range Rover, (Liz) and 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee (Cherry-okee)

Tha'ts it in a nut shell

Welcome Bill!!

We'd sure love to see some pics of your trailer when you get it home! I love my U-Haul, but a Big Foot would be the only other trailer I'd want! (I have Big Foot Envy..but there isn't many out east here!)

Looking forward to hearing (and seeing) some of your camping adventures. Your boys are going to love it!!
