Trailer: Bigfoot 21 ft Rear Bed

What is your favorite trailer feature? Ours happened to be totally unexpected. We were first time RVers with the purchase of our Bigfoot 17.5CB and during the long journey home after picking up the trailer we discovered how pleasant it was sitting at the dinette with all of the surrounding windows. For lunch we would pull off the road, some scenic and others not so attractive (parking lots), and have lunch with full view of the surroundings. We found the same enjoyment in the morning with our breakfast while watching the campground coming alive. We generally prefer being outside but there are occasions that using the dinette is special. We like it so much that I can't imagine considering a trailer without a similar floorplan.

We love so many things about our GeezerEgg, it's tough to single out one, but I'll second Steve's choice. We love the light and open feeling of the large windows - wouldn't want to lose that front window over the sofa/bunk, even for a bath! Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday - L 'n D

The the awning is one of my favorite features. Protection from the rain and the sun. It provides a place to sit and relax in wet weather, or a place to keep firewood dry. We have a small folding table directly outside our trailer -under the awning- that supports a small stove and ice chest for pop and water. Oh....everything goes under the awning at night!

Like you said, but I'd add one other thing I love. (In fact, this is why I was so anxious to get another egg) I love being able to crawl into a bed with my own bedbugs and not having to worry about all the strange filth that is in ALL Hotel / Motel rooms. I don't care what you pay, studies have proved that they are all "petri dishes" of crud. Obviously, the cheaper, the worst, usually, but being in our own "stuff" is priceless.

My pop top. I like being able to close it at night for warmth, and pop it open in the morning and stick my head up like a groundhog looking for sun. Plus it allows for good ventilation and the trailer still fits in the garage.

having had an RV and having been a tear drop owner, we like having a bathroom handy. I have to say though as well we like being able to having a vehicle with our trailer as well.

For us, being able to sleep in our Liberty in comfortable twin beds (with a bathroom close by) and have plenty of room during the day to have friends in for chatting, games or eating. That makes camping easy and great fun for us.

Trailer: 1978 Trillium 4500 Deluxe
Posts: 295
With our 1978 Trillium 4500 Deluxe we love the 2nd room with a fully self-contained bathroom. My wife does'nt miss those years in a tent and waking up in the morning and having all the campers next to us and all around staring at you. Our son doesn't like using the public toilets, for that matter my wife and I don't either.

That's one of the main draws for a bigfoot 5th for us. The big windows.

I agree with Keith too, we like our own bugs!

I think that one of the handiest items is the outside table rail. We have made the bed a permanent arrangement with a front dinette and the larger table is used outside under the awning. There's also a 110v outlet under it, for a tea kettle or electric frypan. Great place for the kitchen. It's the first item I would add if changing trailers.

The bathroom that is fully functional even without hookups! Having a HOT shower in a US Forest Service campground that only provides vault toilets = priceless. The best maintenance chore I ever completed was replacing the 12 volt water pump with a brand new Shur-flo Whisper King with accumulation tank.

We had 35 people at our house on Easter Sunday to hunt for hidden eggs in the yard and help eat a big buffet dinner. Having the trailer in the back yard provided a much needed 2nd bathroom!

Trailer: Hunter Compact II

I have to agree with Bobbie, my Compact II with the 4 windows in the pop-up plus the 2 side windows and door window allow plenty of breeze to get in and when it is raining or snowing it's nice to close it all up and stay warm and dry. The stand up view is nice also when the top is up.
