Building a Bigfoot Fiberglass Slide In from Truckcampermagazine.com

This is an interesting article on how they build a Bigfoot Slide In Camper. You can also see Bigfoot Fiberglass Trailers on the assembly line.

It's a safe bet that many of the procedures outlined in the build of a "Fiberglass Slide In" camper transfer to the production of Fiberglass Towable Trailers.

Enjoy!

LOL, I was just getting ready to post the same link! What a cool article and a testament to Bigfoot! I think this is part of the equation on why we seem to be seeing more attention about Bigfoots these days.

That was a neat look at Bigfoot's quality, and a surpsisingly small workforce.

Hope they're still around in 20 years and using the same business model when it's time to buy our retirement trailer!

I was reading the article when I saw that the spray booths were made in Osseo Wisconsin. I grew up about 10 miles from there.

Progressed from wanting an Oliver then? As mentioned here before, if I was to move from my Escape to any other trailer, it would be a Bigfoot. Darn, those Canucks are good at making trailers, eh?
