Happy New Year to all you on this forum.
We bought the 17' Bigfoot
CB in Oregon and towed it to South Louisiana over Christmas.
Took about 7 days staying at some nice spots along the way, especially in New Mexico. Towed with my 2005 Toyota Tundra without any problems except the fuel mileage was about 9mpg...and this with a 3500 lb trailer. This setup proved to be a pleasure to tow. However one cannot use the overdrive when towing, thus bringing the rpms up...burning fuel. A friend of mine tows a 30' toyhauler and needs a Ford 350 diesal dually but he gets 12mpg. If only Toyota sold diesals here.
We are down here living in the Bigfoot
, plugged into my inlaws house while we cleanup the debris and whats left of our belongings from Hurricane Katrina. I am filming a documentary on our return and the devastion in our old neighborhood has been indescribable. Glad we got the Bigfoot
. Its easy to maneuver and fits in their driveway. The bayou here is a beautiful spot to camp out. Come visit if anyones heading down here. (Galliano, Lousiana off hwy 1) Down here at least until after Mardi Gras then back to Vancouver.
Again thanks for all the advice and welcome.
