Ok I realize this no biggie to alot of you but after copious research AND then deciding that a 21 ft Bigfoot is what suited me AND only seeing pictures of one, I finally saw one, in person, for real!!

I was in the "Chicagoland" area for a seminar and it just so happens that one of the few Bigfoot dealers is located about an hour from the seminar, Kramers Kampers. Needless to say I made a bee line there and saw my "dream rig"
2008 21 ft FB

It didn't disappoint! Just a little beauty. I loved the fiberglass!!

And the folks at Kramers Kampers couldn't be nicer.

I have pictures of the 21ft FB and me in the rig for my "hope chest"

My house is still on the market but when it does sell...

BTW the 2008 models being produced now will cost more $$ because they will have different 30 Anniversary graphics and logo

Hi Joanie,

Yes, Bigfoots are pretty! The prices also have something to do with the weak US$. Ours came from Kramers originally. Hope you get yours soon!

+++++++++++++++++++

I believe that 65% of Bigfoot's market is the US. With the higher Cdn$ Bigfoot's already premium priced trailers should be even a bit higher now for US customers. I wonder if Bigfoot will adjust prices down to possible increase sales, if so, I would have paid more than I should have. I did remark that the Cdn$ did rise since their price sheet was printed, so the cost of material should have been less, but this was not reflected in the MSRP.

WOW Total Price: $44,997 Canadian is pretty pricey!

Kramers has the best prices for new I have found so far

This is the front bed model although I want the sofa instead of the dinenette

Having the fold out sofa would give me a foot more of floor space

Kramers can make me a "fold out" pedestal table for the sofa

Kramers quoted a higher figure of US market. Either way, no doubt that the bulk of Bigfoot market is American

Can't wait to do a interior redesign!

And yes dreams do come true!

That's the "RB" rear bed version. I want one to full time in.

Joanie's choice is the "FB" front bed version.

My aim is to fulltime also

I choose the "FB" because it has a bigger bathroom for my "girlie stuff" and according to Kramers more storage

Oh the 2008 model has a large therma-pane skylight by the entrance with shade.
The amount of light it allows in is great
Also as you walk in to the left is a neat coat rack area with hooks and some storage

Also has a rollaway shower door and top or bottom down shades on the large windows

Just lots of practical extras that add up
