1970s Bigfoot owner's manual

I recently inherited a circa-1970s 17' Bigfoot travel trailer (SM Deluxe?). It's awesome, but didn't come with an owner's manual and I'm a new trailer owner. Would anyone have a copy of a manual they could share? I've contacted Bigfoot directly but they don't have any manuals that "vintage!"
Thanks, Kerri

Welcome Kerri! In the Documents Center here there are a couple of Bigfoot manuals to download - not sure what years they are for though. You may have to download them to find out. Most of our trailers use the same makes of appliances and you will the manuals for many of the old ones in the documents center as well.

Hi Kerri, welcome to FiberglassRV.

Carol has pointed you to the right place... the Document Center. All kinds of manuals available there. Just write down the brand/model of your appliances, etc then download to your hearts content. If you have a need for something that's not there... give a shout out. I'm betting someone can help... then we'll add it to the Document Center

Kerri,
Don't know if you noticed, the Document Center just added the manual for Hydro Flame furnaces. My 1980 Bigfoot has a model FA 7912 PF. I've downloaded it, so now have a copy of the manual that should have come with my 15B17G.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I have downloaded the owner's manual so will have a look at that tonight. I need to get the trailer winterized for now, and then will likely be looking through the document centre for information on how to run all the other parts, like fridge, furnace, etc. I'm sure I'll have more specific questions at some point! Cheers, Kerri
