Hey All,

My partner and I have both emailed Bigfoot asking them to please put a larger bed in the Bigfoot 17' model. I spoke with AZ Bigfoot rep Doug Sloan yesterday and guess what... they got our emails and are listening! Doug said that although he cannot promise anything, one of their engineers started working on a mock-up for a bed that would comfortably fit two adults, along the lines of what is in the Airstream. I just looked at the Airstream website and it looks as though their widest bed is 48", but that would still be an improvement over the measely 42" gaucho that the current Bigfoot 17' G model has.

If Bigfoot gets more email from users and potential owners who request a 52"-54" bed in their 17 footer, then I am sure that they may put some effort into engineering it! Roger and those of you who have come up with some great layout ideas... now is a great time to submit them to Bigfoot, because we have their ear! In our emails, we also asked them to rebuild their 19' and 20' model molds because those are sizes that would be in great demand!

We submitted our emails via their website http://www.bigfootrv.com/contact.php

They are apparently very open right now to customer and potential buyer input, so consider putting in your two cents!

Val

I found that they are very good about getting back to people. I used their online contact email form to ask about the weight capacity of the 1995 convert-a-bunk and they responded to me the SAME DAY!
Maybe I'll have to give them my request for a upper bunk in a 17' that can hold more than a 50lb kid.
The basic design of the bigfoots allows for more headroom towards the outer sides of the trailers than a typical egg, so there's lots of room for an upper bunk that can hold a larger person, it's just the weight capacity that needs improvement. I think a lot of people would buy a 17' trailer that had a 48-52" lower bed with a 125lb+ rated top bunk over, leaving the ability to have the dinette left up (but extra bed if needed).

Oh yeah? How 'bout a rear 80" queen!

Bigfoot seems to be a remarkably responsive company. Their after-sale service is amazing.

Frankly, one of the reasons we didn't go for an Airstream was the 48 inch bed - it's almost, but not quite enough for us to be comfortable. And, of course, the Bigfoot beds were way too small - we were really surprised when we first looked at them - otherwise love the trailer! Hope they go for at least 52 - 54" bed.
