Bigfoot 5th whl trailers - 2 sizes? 19 and 20?

Recently looked at a T 20 Bigfoot 5th whl trailer. While this one was not for me, I noticed that the 5th wheel frame etc looked more substantial than one that my brother looked at and took pictures of for me. Were there 2 models of this type of trailer?
Both were single axle.
Unfortunately, the trailer that my brother looked at did not have an
information sheet in the closet, so I can't tell what model it actually is.
Both look very similar other than the bathroom on the one that I looked at is bigger, entrance step to 5th wheel bed area had more steps also.

As far as I know there was only one size, people just measure them different. The frames were changed through the years in size and configuration. There are at least four different floor plans that I know of and a couple variations of a couple of those. The bathroom sizes are all the same in the ones I have pictures of ( I have saved every picture I've ever seen), they are installed at different heights in the trailers.

The dual axle has a raised interior floor which sandwiches the holding tanks between it and the exterior fiberglass. That also make the ceiling height less and the upper cabinets smaller. It also requires an interior step up inside the door.

The beds had different step configurations too depending on the year, floor plan and how many martinis were had at lunch.

Hope that helps.

Bigfoot Fifthwheel

As I see it the single axle fifthwheel was designed after the 17.5 trailer and the tandem axle was designed after the 19 ft trailer I did find some pics of both Rick....
