The End of 4-foot-itis

We started down this slippery slope by buying a very well-used 16' Scamp from a neighbor in Anchorage, Alaska. We needed quick, inexpensive shelter for the salmon run on the Kenai Peninsula. We also did a rather epic drive up the haul road which roughed up the Scamp a lot more. Nancy liked this new form of road trip shelter. But she thought we should get one with a bathroom and a little more space. I thought a 17' Casita would be perfect. It was for several years. We moved to the lower 48 and started doing more road trips with the trailer. Nancy wondered if anybody made a fiberglass trailer with a little more space than a Casita 17. So I found a deal on a Bigfoot 21. The extra four feet seemed luxurious. It would have remained so if we hadn't attended a Bigfoot rally that same year. Nancy's eyes lit up when we toured someone's 25 foot Bigfoot. I knew the 21 was doomed, but I held out for four more years. Last week the perfect deal materialized right here on FiberglassRV. Hugh in Montana had posted an ad for his 2004 Bigfoot 25RQ in July. We missed it while we were on vacation and Hugh already had a buyer by the time I called. Weeks later, the buyer had backed out and I was on my way to Montana last Tuesday. This trailer has been stored indoors and looks like new. Nancy loves it and nobody is making a molded fiberglass trailer four feet longer than this one. (Let's not tell her about the exceedingly rare Bigfoot 28 currently listed in the FOR SALE thread.)

While returning from Montana along I-90 I saw eight fiberglass trailers last Friday. None of them returned my wave. Can't really blame them. The Bigfoot is not a cute little egg that turns heads everywhere. Now I'm thinking I need to get me one of those for my little fishing expeditions to the mountains. The same reason I needed one ten years ago.

Meanwhile, I'll be getting the 21 ready to sell if anyone is interested. It's a 2001 in very decent shape. We live in northeast Wyoming.

I think your safe with your size if you stick with fiberglass trailers. It's an interesting story of change. I'm just now looking for a 21 rear bed, but want a pretty cheap one as I plan on tearing out the interior and putting one in for our full timeing needs. I'm also kind of waiting to see what the new 21 foot looks like from Escape. The 25' rear bed is nice and I've thought about it, but after attending the last NOG meet ended up liking the 21 as it seemed a little more open inside. Have a great camping time.

Glad your getting another sasquatch; I was eyeing that 25 but prefer the 21.

If you can convince the misses on a trade, you could have your fishin' shack
