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!
