We have 08 21' BF which we like a lot but have problem with parking, it is too wide for our driveway which is about 9'6". The trailer is 8'4" wide so if compared to the Escape 17' which is 6'8" wide our, per side, clearance would increase from 7 to 17" which would not be a problem.

So, if you have issue with narrow parking Bigfoot is considerably wider. We bought the trailer when we had practically unlimited parking space, in the new house parking is a major problem, to the point that parking is a major inhibitor for a few days long trips. We are in the midst of making a decision and selling the house is not an option.

The difference is double pane windows, thicker insulation, fiberglass incased pipes. In fact, one way to determine if you are looking at a 4 seasoned Bigfoot is to look underneath the frame. If the pipes are covered by fiberglass, you have a 4 seasoned trailer. If you can see the plumbing, you do not.

I read another post which described how the propane heater works to keep the pipes from freezing.

I wanted to get a 4-seasoned trailer because I do a lot of Winter Camping in Northern California. I have also taken it to Montana and in Utah. Prior to looking for a Bigfoot, I had decided on a Casita. I am glad I did not go that route as it would not have meet my cold weather needs.

My only complaint is the fact that I am sleep separately from my husband due to the bed sizes.

If ... you want to consider a comfortable, cold weather, "stick" trailer, Artic Fox is very popular in Canada.

BTW, there are several Bigfoots listed in the classifies of this forum: http://portland.craigslist.org/clk/rvs/2895299885.html Take a look.

Once again,

Good luck!
