Sorry to be so slow to answer but we are on the road in our little trailer. Congratulations. We look forward to seeing you very soon at the NOG gathering.

I am now the proud owner of a 17.5' 1990 Bigfoot I am off to check if there are still spaces available for the Oregon Rally in April I can't wait to meet those of you that will be there!!!

Hi Andrea, Larry and I will be at the Oregon Rally. I'm sooo looking forward to it. I think I'm getting cabin fever, one of those must get out of town or go batty . Will also be right after my 40th birthday. Wanted to go to Hawaii, but to tell the truth I think this might be more fun and way less stress (and money).
Hope to see there.....

I have a question for Roger H or anyone who knows the answer. What is the weight rating of the axle on the 1500 series Bigfoot 17 footers? The rating for the 2500 series is 4400#, I think.

The axle on my '04 is rated at 3500 lbs. Can't address for sure what other year model 17's have, but they're probably the same...

...What is the weight rating of the axle on the 1500 series Bigfoot 17 footers?
According to the 1500 specs page which I downloaded from Bigfoot before it was discontinued, it is a 3500 lb axle (in both 15B17CB and 15B17G variants). I can't be sure of the model year... I believe that it was the last version posted before the 1500 series was discontinued, and I downloaded it in October 2004.

and for a bonus, the other 1500 stuff which I grabbed at the same time (while I'm at it)...

Yes, I believe that the 2500-series model (25B17.5xx) has a single 4400 lb axle, while the large units have tandem 3500 lb axles.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Just got back from the Winter Warm-up. Thanks for the info re axle ratings. I had planned to check out the 2004 Bigfoot 17 for sale in Irvine, but didn't get a reply from the RV place.
