What we love about our Bigfoot 5th;
-It tows much better and smoother than any bumper pull we have ever towed including the 13 ft Boler
-Easy to hitch, easy to back up.
-We love the twin bed set up we went to. No more crawling over each other to go to the bathroom. I can have my soft bed he can have his firm bed.
-Lots of storage.
-Big bath with separate shower.
- We can comfortably seat 6 for dinner (eight in a pinch) and we can still have floor space and elbow room.
- Eric can walk upright. I can do jumping jacks.
-The big windows
The disadvantages as we see it;
- We would like to have dual axles but could not find a Bigfoot dual axle
that we could afford and was in striking distance. We would still buy one if we find one.
- We miss having the full truck bed.
We have a 2001 short bed 4x4 Dodge truck, with a Superglide automatic sliding hitch so we never have to worry about hitting the cab, even in very sharp turn. We can u turn any where we can u turn the truck. It still amazes and amuses us. The trailer we bought was already lifed to fit a taller truck. We have a storage box in front of the hitch that is bed height so we don't have to worry about hitting it when we turn. We have to figure out how to carry our new bikes. We don't think they will fit safely as in the picture Donna posted. I think the trailer would hit them, will have to do some measuring and see. The dogs ride in the truck.
Escapes and Bigfoots are 5th wheels, Scamps are goosenecks unless the have been converted to 5th hitches.
