Hi all, family and I are considering a FG trailer and as far as the newer models go these two seem to be it (also we're in canada and these two are built in BC). So, wanted to leverage any folks out there who have done a comparison of the two. Of the basics I'm aware that the bigfoot
is a wide-body and weights very close to 3000 lbs dry, whereas the escape
is less than 2000. We did look at an owner's 17' casita
in the states a few years back but were turned off by the heavy chemical smell of glued down carpet liner, etc. Ended up buying a small '69 airstream which I towed with a truck. Both were sold in '04 and we're now looking for a smaller rig as we live in toronto now, as such we're looking at the new Rav4 with 3500 towing capacity (we have 1 city parking space). So, the bigfoot
is probably too heavy though we do like the photos of the 'G' model even though the rear sofa only makes into a 42" wide bed and there are 3 of us. Comments/suggestions?
Also, I have seen prices as low as 22K cdn for both, new.
