Could you not take the loan and immediately turn around and pay it off? But truthfully, after all that they are putting you through, I would be hard pressed to give them my hard earned money.

Well, we just bought it. Whew, talking to the finance/sales manager was an ordeal...but it is water under the bridge now. Picking it up Feb 19

Well, congratulations are in order then!

Yes, Henry, that was your 500th forum post!

Oh, and I guess you also own a fine new travel trailer too.

I've seen you over on the Airforum where I occasionally lurk. I guess I like the silver twinkies for their aesthetics and their old-school aluma-rivet vibe. But, there's nothing like molded glass for practical.

I hope your new Bigfoot turns out to be everything you wish for!

Thanks Mike.

Kevin, we just paid cash, no loan.

We were about to buy an Airstream, which is why I had pre approval for a loan from our Savings and Loan. I just happened to come across the BF when I was trying to gauge AS dealers while looking for deals or sales. Of course I knew about BF but did not realize they were now expanding into the eastern USA. I MUCH prefer BF to AS, although AS is pretty tricked out. To be honest we prefer the molded cabinets of the Casita and Oliver, but the Casita(what we currently have) is 90% of what the Oliver is and much less expensive, so never considered a move to the Oliver. Neither is quite big enough however. The BF is less susceptible to hail and hopefully strong enough for a full sized man to walk on the roof... I just realized I did not ask anyone about that. Oh well too late now...

Also BF uses off the shelf materials for the most part whereas AS has a lot of unique to AS parts, which means hard to get and expensive.

Atleast you got the discounts, that’s the important thing. I hate it when someone tries to jack you around.
Welcome to the BF family. You will ��❤️ It!

Congratulations! I agree with your assessment of AS vs. BF. The extra insulation and double pane windows will be really nice in both hot and cold weather. The $30-40K or so you saved will buy a lot of gas and camp sites.

After our last vehicle purchase, I felt like I needed a shower. Do what you need to do and move forward.

Happy travels!

Congratulations! I walk on our BF 25RQ roof no worries. I have done a bunch of mods (as I did to our Ollie), mainly things my wife wanted but a few of what I consider improvements. This trailer has great bones, and real step up for liveabilty. Enjoying Florida right right now.

Now the modding fun starts! My wife thinks that is the main reason we bought the BF.

I am having the dealership install a micro air easy start.

Unfortunately this year, interest on loans for Travel Trailers are no longer deductible, only the Class B, C, A type motorhome loans are.

Well then, major kudos to you! No doubt everyone is happy. Time to load up and take 'er somewhere beautiful. That's what it's all about. Congrats on the buy and persevering to get what you really wanted. I'll flash my lights and wave if we happen to pass each other on some lonely highway. We're off this spring to BC Canada and perhaps Alaska to boot, just for the heck of it!

Onward! Tallyho!

Bigfoot

I saw Bigfoot in the wood,
Just a shadow where he stood,
A giant standing in the dark,
Vanished without leaving a mark.

Howling, knocking, crashing thru trees,
A shiver up my spine and a knock in my knees,
People say I am as crazy as you can get,
What I saw I'll never forget.

If you find yourself alone in the trees,
Smelling some flowers and enjoying the breeze,
You may sense that you're not alone,
But right in the middle of Bigfoot's home.

Thanks!
Meet a couple camping last fall and they were in there new BF, said they got the best deal on a BF from the dealer in Denver, Colorado and they had checked them all. They were very happy with the trailer, they do live in San Antonio, Texas

I too have a 25B25FB and walking on the roof is not a problem. I'm 6'2" and 225 lbs. Just use common sense and don't step and put weight near any the immediate area of the roof openings...i.e. A/C, skylight, fans, etc.

Congratulations on your Bigfoot. Welcome to the Bigfoot family. You may want to join up at the Bigfoot Owners site. Lots of old and new information there.
