Buying a 1990 Bigfoot 3000 series

Hi all, I am new to this forum I live in northwest. My fiancée and I really want to get a fiberglass truck camper and found this 3000 series 1990 Bigfoot by looking around, I would like some recommendations since I am very new to this and this camper is as old as us, I am handy so I can deal with minor repair as long as the camper have good bones. What you guys think of this is it too old? The camper seems in good shape for is age.

Nothing is too old in the FG camper arena. It’s all about how it has been maintained and stored. Poorly maintained and stored outside with no cover, 10 years might be too old. Stored and maintained 50 year old could be ok.

When I bought my 42 year old Trillium last fall, it had not been maintained. But it had been stored in a garage for the last 20 years so it was in pretty good condition.

I'll take note of that thank you ! Now i need to evaluate if my truck can handle the weight of the bigfoot 3000 series, apparently they are very heavy.

First , that is not a 3000 series, & I don't believe the 3000 or 2500 series was available in 1990. I can see by the windows in the picture that they are single pane windows ( dual pane appear somewhat recessed ) so that is what we now would call a 1500 series. About as light as you'll find in a BFTC. look for a sagging roof as many then didn't have factory AC, & may have not had proper bracing added when it was built.
FYI, a 3000 series had a molded front, rear & bottom section with flat 'sandwich' sides & a rubber or (later models) FG roof section. VERY well insulated, but not a true FG (as we consider them) with a clamshell top & bottom section, as is the one pictured.
