Rare Bigfoot

Just purchased a 1999 Bigfoot Columbia River 24ft Trailer , Did not know they even made this model as I have seen it on the truck camper but I find out they were made in the Oregon plant along with the class B motorhome and then when the owner of Bigfoot died in a plane crash they shut down the Oregon plant and sent everything back to Armstong BC,and this is where my trailer comes from it is a 2000 Series they made them in 22ft 24 ft and 27 ft , I have only found one other it is a 22ft. I am just wondering if any of you have ever seen this trailer anywhere or howmany were made. Anyway it is beautiful in MINT condition. With Pics...

Nice looking trailer Rick.
But are these pictures of your Bigfoot? This one's tagged as a Colombia River and there is no mention of Bigfoot on the spec sheet. It appears to have fiberglass ends and composite sides. Shure is a lot bigger and roomier than our little Boler though.

Another bigun'. Rick, welcome to FiberglassRV. You've landed on a forum who's focus is light (all) molded towables. If you have questions, we may be able to help you... however, you will probably find more assistance at a couple of forums where like-minded owners hang out: iRV2 - RV Forum Community and the Open Road forums

Hi James Well yes these trailers wew made in Bigfoots Oregon plant in 1996 97 along with the class B Motorhome ,both great ideas of Owner Terry Mayhall Then there was a plane crash and Terry and others died ,they decided to close the Oregon plant and this is where my trailer came from they did make Columbia River truck campers,also The Oakland,and the Extreme, I also have a broucher of the same trailers as Bigfoots in 22ft 24ft and 27ftMy trailer was made in Armstrong BC in Bigfoot plant has a Bigfoot Serial Number and is registered as a Bigfoot. Let me tell you I sold my 1988 17.5 Bigfoot my Baby and I would never by another trailer they are the best and best ever made they are the Airsteam of the fiberglass,trust me I had a 1974 Boler she was great sold it for $6000.00. Then bought a Bigfoot a 17.5 I restored it and did not think I would ever get rid of it BUT This 24ft Colubia River BY BIGFOOT came up and I bought it. It even has the Sasquatches on it. It is a beautiful trailer. I also can send you pics of an Oakland {Bigfoot RV} Motorhome and The Bigfoot Class B.. And of a 28ft Bigfoot Silver Cloud which they only made 12 And also a 22ft Columbia River If you look at the colours of the Class B and the Columbia Rivers they were designed around the same time. Enjoy Rick

Hi Donna D My trailer weighs in at 4100 lbs. I think the 17.5 2008 Bigfoot weighs 3400 lbs.My trailer is Fiberglass front and back anf fibercore walls all designed by the owner of Bigfoot in the Mid 90,s It was made in Bigfoot plant has Bigfoot Serial Number and is registered as a Bigfoot. I just thought that somebody might like to see something different for once, as I have owned a 1974 Boler the original fiberglass trailer and then a 17.5 Bigfoot I enjoy Fiberglass Rv and have been a member for a while with my Boler and my Bigfoot. Bigfoot makes other trailers and Rv,s Have a look and enjoy.... Rick..............Click image for larger version

Thanks Rick. If I could afford it and a new tug, I'd love to have the 25' Bigfoot. I've seen several in person and they're truly beautiful. I was just afraid you'd start asking us questions about seams and delamination of the side panels and we don't have those

Hi Donna D It is not a 25ft, It is a 24 ft and if you have seen several well where are they as there is nothing on the net ,only one which I found in Alberta, Canada I am taking it to the Bigfoot rally in Canada this year which is in The Columbia River Valley should be a great hit..

Rick, I knew it wasn't the 25 foot... those are molded... At least the model I was speaking about. Like this: 2006 Bigfoot 25B25RQ Curbside-1

As you cruise the forums here, you'll see references to "stickies" That's how we describe your type of Bigfoot. Slab side panels, seams and built around a frame. All the trailers named here on this home page: http://www.fiberglassrv.com/index.html are molded trailers. Self-supporting shells, no inner frame.

You own a Dodge and are at a Ford/Chevy convention.

However, my philospophy is love the one your with! I'm certain your trailer fits your needs/wants perfectly.

I just checked out the rally info.. looks like a good time will be had by all!

So why does not even my Bigfoot but even most Bigfoots dont fit into fiberglassrv .com I did own a Boler Loved it and had to move on, then bought a 17.5 Bigfoot then found this BIGFOOT and let me tell you there are no sticks in it it has a fiberglass front and back and all Fiber Core walls, I am sorry but I rebiult my 17.5 Bigfoot yeh the outer shell is fiberglass but what holds all the wood interiour and cabinets yeh as you call them sticks an, actually more than a fibercore wall. As the fibercore wall is all fiberglass did you know And I do not like the shot you own a Dodge and you are at a Ford/Chevy convention. What does that mean??

Sorry Rick, I'm the last person that would purposely hurt your feelings, honestly. I was just trying to explain the difference between what we call eggs and your trailer. Obviously I've done a very bad job of that.

The Dodge at a Ford/Chevy convention was a parody. They're all motor vehicles, similar but not the same.

On edit: I found another topic about a Rare Bigfoot: http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...elp-41990.html

You do have a nice trailer Rick, no question about that. When we talk about "stickie" it doesn't necessary mean wood frame. An Alumalite, which has an all aluminum frame.. is a "stickie" to us. We just use stickie to mean inner frame work.

Stay around, hang out... share your camping stories. I'd especially like to hear about your Bigfoot rally this next fall
