Ed---I have had two 1994 Bigfoot trailers with skylights and they both had leaks. They were/are just attached with screws through the thin skin and not to any backing. They can become loose and develop leaks. In the NW they have to be watched carefully.

Well, we finally got our trailer, thanks to all of you for the comments and advice. The BF 21'FB unit that we ended up buying did not have a skylight so that was decided for us. It has two fantastic fans (one exhaust by the stove and one two-way by the bed) that seem to work great. We have most of the options on our trailer and just had our first trip from Eugene, Oregon to where we live in northern Calif. We spent four days doing this and had a good experience for our first RV/trailer trip (tried the range from full hookups to dry camping)-- the BigFoot is great and we are very happy with the selection.

GREAT Ed, glad everything is working out to your satisfaction. Please keep in mind the Oregon Gathering 2008, I'd love to see it in person

PS: Now you get to change your profile from trailer type: none to BigFoot... through "My Controls."

My 25B21RB had the kitchen skylight. Right between the sink and the dinette, centered. It never leaked and provided much needed light within the cabin area with the drapes closed. I'd rather have that skylight than not - anytime.
