If anyone is looking for a really nice small Bigfoot there is one on ebay now that would be worth the money if you could get it for 25k or less. The guy has been running it off and on for six months. I bid on it once last summer but didn't meet his reserve. He may have lowered it by now. I found another one. I don't know the guy and never did talk to him. The auction ends in a couple of hours.

One might have to pay back registration on that trailer if they live in California. California is pretty money hungry right now. I guess if you can afford 30,000+ for a trailer... a few thousand more won't matter.

Quite a few 17 footers have languished on the market, but there are very few coming up for sale. We paid $17,500 for ours when it was 3 years old. NADA guides was $13,450 at that time. Ours was in very good condition (featured in albums). All I can say about the price on the 17.5 above is WOW! Anyone buying that one should spend some time figuring out what the loaded cargo carrier does to tongue weight. I think you would definitely need a truck to pull it.

We got a great deal on our 2003 BF in 2007 because the previous owner only asked for the NADA price.We just happen to see it on a residental street and asked to take a look inside. Had the Scamp 13, but the price was too good to say no. Only downside was the need for a larger truck. So it does happen.

I looked for a little over a year for a Bigfoot 17 and they tended to cost around $8,000 for 1980's versions. I did see one for closer to $7,000 in Oregon,but it needed a lot of work. The one I eventually bought cost less than usual and even though another buyer called the owner first, he was trying to get her down to the NADA value (around $1500)-at which point I swept in and got a great deal paying the price she was asking. I had to put about $1000 worth of repairs into her, but even at that I paid a lot less than the prices I had been seeing and think I got a great deal. After you have been looking for a while it will be easier to pay the higher prices as you will get used to them.

I am very happy with the way she travels and the comforts of camping in her. My only "issue" right now is that she has a ton of storage and when I fill it all up (bad habit) the trailer gets too heavy and pulls a little slowly up hills with our 6 cyl. smaller sized pickup (those 8,000 ft. passes in Yellowstone Park were an ordeal one summer). I think that is more my fault than hers and I am trying to cure myself of the "overpacking" I have done in the past-If I don't I am going to have to rename her "The Kramalot Inn!

Know what you want to spent and what you want to buy.
When you find one at the price move on it fast, the good ones go very fast.
