After reading a thread about "wavy roofs" on certain years (80s) Bigfoot
17s I have to think that there must have been a switch in the construction process sometime between the very start of production and 2005 (when the switch from the 1500 and 2500 series happened).
The reason for this is the roof on my 97 is super strong...I was up there again the other day and it feels like I could do a jig up there....and I'm 200lbs! It's real stiff under foot. As far from "wavy" as you can get.
This leads me to think that sometime between the late eighties and the early nineties there was a change at the factory....think of it from going from "no series" to the 1500 series trailers maybe....Does that make sense to anybody? If so I wonder what year it was that the switch happened.
If I'm right it would mean that there are THREE "series" of BF17 trailers....not just two....Waddya think?
the pictures are a cross section of the roof in my 97...bottom up, it shows the wet bath enclosure...space...the glued-on headliner...the thin plywood/styrofoam insulation...the fiberglass roof....putty....and the hatch frame
