Unhappy


I must be totally hooked on Fiberglass Trailers.

I just bought a second one.

It is a Bigfoot Fifthwheel.

I will go and pick it up the middle of this month.

Have you ever bought something 1200 miles away with only limited pictures to go by?

I hope it turns out alright ?????


Seems that this forum is addictive also, I find my self checking here several times a day.

No wonder it is so hard to find a good used egg...all these people who own more than one are taking all the best ones.

I know what you mean Harvey.
A couple of months ago I drove about 3 hours and bought a fixer upper Scamp 13. A few days later someone posted a Scamp on this site dthat was about 45 miles from my home and I went to look at it and bought it. It is in almost like new condition. Since I joined this group I have bought 4 Eggs. The last Scamp 13 I bought is the one that I will keep, it is geat and needs nothing but a water pump and instant hot water heater.
Now I have a winter project with the fixer upper I bought.

It's funny how sometimes you think you're the only crazy person, and then someone else confesses. Last January I bought a 13' Trillium in Buffalo for a winter project. It snowed heavily the same night I bought it which meant I couldn't bring it home until 2 months later. I knew then I wouldn't have it ready for May vacation, so when i got a response to my wanted ad from a lady in Quebec(550 Km away) we decided to go for a mini weekend vacation and look at the 13' Trillium she had for sale. It was dirty from sitting under trees but otherwise in wonderful condition so we bought it. Half an hour later on our way home with the Trillium we came across a 1992 13.5 Bigfoot for sale on the side of the road. The next day we owned 3 trailers. By this time spring fever was in force and the two Trillium's sold quickly. Since then we've used the Bigfoot with front dinette and know that this is the way to go. At the end of August I found a 4500 Trillium which is what I initially started looking for, and hope to refurbish it with front dinette and queen size bed over the winter.

Harv, I think you did real good with the fifth wheel Bigfoot.

I'm on my 8th RV, so never say never. Something might come down the road that catches your eye. Just keep it fiberglass!

I went 575 miles to get my U Haul. I sold my Airstream to a guy that drove 1400 miles based on the pictures! Internet GOOD, thanks again Al Gore. I'm sure it will work out for you too, Harv.

Yes:: Lisbeth it is the one from the bay area.

I will leave here in the afternoon on the 13 Dec. And drive to Saltlake City and spend the night with folks that have become friends through going to carshows for many years.

The next day drive to Calif. Not sure how far i will get but i will have a co-driver(one of the guys from our car club.

I spent the weekend getting my pickup ready to tow the fifthwheel.

I wanted that one really badly but we were out of town the week of Thanksgiving. I hope you got as great of a deal as I suspect you did. Someday a great deal on a 5th wheel that has my name on it will come along, hopefully a double axle Bigfoot.

Please keep us (me!) updated on your adventure with the trailer.

We can understand both thoughts. We bought a 19' Scamp 5th wheel sight unseen. It's a 2005 and it sounds like it's in great shape, so we're eagerly awaiting the moment when we found out whether the pictures and description match the hype we paid for. It's our first egg, and I go down to pick it up on Friday.

We also thought there's one heck of a lot going for 13' eggs, too, and have discussed getting a well-used 13' Scamp as a fix-up-project I can tow behind a smaller, more economical vehicle. That may be a while down the road, but we're already talking about it and we haven't even picked up our first trailer!

We bought our first Scamp sight unseen, no pictures, nothing. I saw it on eBay and hit the "buy it now" button paying the full asking price before the first bid was placed.

It turned out just fine and we had a lot of fun cleaning it up!
