1980 Bigfoot is 17 feet long including hitch and rear bumper. Fiberglass "box" is 14 feet long. Our's is a 15B17G. For Bigfoot model names, the first 2 numbers indicate the series, either "15" or "25" for 1500 or 2500 series. The "B" is for Bigfoot. The second numbers are length in feet; 17, 19, 21, 25. The last letter is floor plan; gaucho (G), center bath (C, etc.

As Jon mentioned, the Casita Independence 17 features lengthwise twin beds with little tables in-between. From the photos on the Casita website, it looks as though with the tables taken out, you can make the twins into one big bed with no crawling over to get out:

details...

had to cut two inches off the table (bulkhead end) to make it fit between the kitchen and the fridge...

bedding consists of comforter bottom, two flat sheets, comforter top....all of it gets rolled up in a tight bundle and stuffed/stored in the overhead cabinet (center divider removed)

That's one reason I looked for my Eriba - a lengthwise bed in the back of the trailer.
I almost bought a Fiberstream but it was too heavy for the tow vehicle I had at the time. The Fiberstreams are nice trailers.

Crawl under instead of over?

Sorry! Couldn't resist.

Even the 21' Bigfoot has a bed that is up against a wall on one side. Which is why I was doomed to buy a 25' as soon as Nancy saw one for the first time. A bed you can walk around on three sides is a luxury we only imagined when we had a Scamp and Casita and the 21' Bigfoot.

Crawl over

I assume that you are not interested in a bunk bed? don't know how to solve your dog problem? I use a full-size van to tow my T4500. The van has a very comfortable bed inside allowing each person to get up (no crawl over). It also eliminates having to take the dining table down at night to make the bed and gives us much more storage space. I have never understood the pick-up craze? All your stuff gets wet or stolen and the interior feels crowded as the trucks get bigger every year and seem to have less useable space.

The 17' and later 17.5' Bigfoots are overall lengths, hitch to bumper.

Why not simply sleep in two beds . My wife or a male friend use the table bed , while I use the front . I removed the bunk set up , added a 4" custom mattress which gives me a twin sized bed .

The newer Independence model by Casita might offer a solution with a modification to fill in the gap between the twins. Take a look.
