Just curious, in the first photo, the decals on the side say Bigfoot 2500 ? Is that considered a 21 ft?

Bigfoot had different series of trailers. The 1500 series, the 2500 series, depending on which year the trailer was made... [b]and the series most readily refers to the amount of insulation thickness, NOT the length.
Each series had the different models, 17', 21', 25', etc...

So this is a 21' trailer in the 2500 series.

Congratulations on your nice looking Bigfoot, We have a 2500 series that is only 16 ft. long from end to end and has lots more space inside than the Scamp 19' deluxe we sold. The camper is sold as a 9.5ft. camper. It loads better, rides better and weight less than the Scamp did so we also get better mpg with it and can tow the Mule behind us. Again congratulations and enjoy your fine looking Bigfoot. We get out just about ever weekend with ours so get out and camp with yours.

Here's another congrats from a fellow Bigfoot owner. That trailer looks very good. We also sold a Casita when we got our Bigfoot - took one whole day. I wish we could afford to have kept them both, though.

As Frederick stated, the 2500 series does have a higher cold weather rating. This generally includes thermopane windows and all the plumbing and tanks being enclosed in the heated area. This only works with the forced air furnace being run. A portable heater would only heat the living quarters but would not circulate to the tanks and water pipes. If you look at your black and gray tanks under the trailer you will see they are enclosed in fiberglass. The furnace will send enough heat into this compartment to prevent freezing.

You will also find that the better windows and insulation will help keep the trailer cooler while running the AC in summer. That is a real plus.

If you haven't already done so, check out the Bigfoot Owners Club website. The annual rally is in Colorado this year and there are still some spaces left. Hope you can make it!

thanks but we can't make it to that rally this year. We are so pleased with our purchase and we will join the club but I do not have all the info needed right here to join at this moment.
