Wow some people live lucky lives. hope it works out, and the price is better. course it's a little older, but with these who can tell.[/quote]

Well not to put too fine a point on it but there are design line changes that will be noticable once you bring it home and start to compare. 5000+ US seems like a little too much to pay unless the buyer in this case knows the history. eg One owner?

If it has an awning that might be the first thing that needs replacing at about 1000.00

Good luck and don't be hasty.

Mike

Still ticking

No call back from the Bigfoot folk, and their answering maching is still turned on.

Kitty's Bigfoot Lead

Kitty, I paid $6000 Canadian for my 84, 17ft last spring. There was another one listed in the local classifieds a month later which was the same year but with ac that was listed at $7000 canadian. Hope this helps you with your negotiations.

Kitty! You got the rig? Yeah!

Like Rick says. Pictures! We want pictures!

We also want details. They finally called you back? How did you make the purchase? Sit on their door step!

Oh yeah, did I say we want pictures!

>>knows nothing

Kitty, my wife thinks I know nothing, too. But hey, I love her and know she can do no wrong.

So light a couple of candles, put on some music, dress appropriately, and when he walks in the door, say "honey, I was a bad, bad girl today. I bought a trailer!"

He'll love it!

I know I would.

*ZAP!*

So the one thing I forgot to look at on the trailor was the wiring connector. I bought a flat four male to female, figuring I could make an adaptor. The trailor had a round fitting, but I was stuffing wires into it, making the brake lights work and feeling confident that it was all good, when I shorted out the car's rear running lights.
:red
Doug met me at the rig, and was thoroughly impressed by it. He followed me home to give me a little more rear coverage. I'll go back tomorrow with my elder daughter and try to collect the little thang.

Pictures will have to wait until I unearth the connection cable that hooks my camera up to my computer.

It's a B-17 Gaucho, FWIW.

Now to do all the work I didn't do today. Ahh, the joys of self-employment.

Kitty

Kitty ... they make a 4 flat to 7 round connector. Sell them at rv places, camping world, etc.

Thing you have to check is ... does the round connector on the trailer use blade or pin contacts.

I believe it is called a 7 pin Pollack connector on the Big Foot. The pins are flat.

The Gaucho model is very nice. Now my recollection was the Gaucho was Sans fridge?
