Weren't those built in Oregon by a spin-off from BigFoot?

I wonder if the trailer must be unhooked from the tow vehicle before letting out the bed? It looks like it sticks out there a long way. Interesting design, but I'd worry about the seams on the front every time I had to drive through rain.

The trailer was made here in BC and you can see it in detail online 2009 brochure. Not sure what year they actually stopped making it.

Northern Lite is another fine BC Company up in the interior that has been around since the 80's or so - build very popular truck campers - They were for years probable Bigfoot's biggest competitor in that area with the fishing and hunting crowd. May even have taken over the truck camper market in these parts while Bigfoot was on its shut down.

Edit to add: Looks like 2011 was the last year they made the 16' trailer.

Its certainly an interesting idea to make a small trailer seem larger... but for me it still brings in the problem of when it rains on packup day you still need to set it up to dry somewhere.... but to each their own.

The really great part is the rear dinette is also a bed. So, if it's raining when you go camping, you sleep on the dinette/bed. If it's really nice, you can sleep under the canvas. I know a lot of people talk about missing that when moving from tent trailers to all molded.
