Current (or recent) builders of 5th wheel fiberglass trailers?

I know that Escape is building the 5.0 and Scamp is building the 19' Fifth Wheel trailers.

Are there any other manufacturers building (or did build up to the mid 90s) fiberglass 5th wheels that a Nissan Frontier can pull easily enough?

The Bigfoot 5th wheel was a nice looking trailer however, it looks like they're no longer building 5th wheels.

That is it, as far as I am aware.

The last year Bigfoot 5th wheels were manufactured was 1994. A fire destroyed the molds.

Thank you Nita. A 90-94 model might do if it were in really good condition.

Some of these FG trailers have surprised me at how good of a condition they're in twenty years down the road.

The Bigfoot 5th wheels can mostly be found in the northwest U.S. and Canada. One was recently posted here for sale in Washington but he may have sold it by now. And be prepared to travel to get one. We found ours in Oregon and had it transported to Louisiana.

Best of luck in your search.
