Kev & Melis, maybe you shouldn't give up on this quite yet if it's just the weight
issue. Paul's logic seems sound to me: the tandem 5er may not be much more than 2900 lb loaded, and my Boler
17' is around 3000 lb loaded, so maybe there isn't much to be saved with a Boler
1700 or Trillium
5500. Have you actually seen the Bigfoot
paperwork, to understand which weight
is being quoted? "Bigfeet" only seem to get bigger with each generation, and even the heavier variation of the current 21' trailer (a 25B21FB, no 5th wheel model in production) is 3815 lb empty in the Bigfoot specs
; at the same time, even their lightest unit (17.5 ft) has a 4300 lb gross
If you scan and post the paperwork from Bigfoot
, I can point out what I mean or concede that my guess is wrong - either is fine with me!
And now the obvious question: Herschel
! What does your trailer weigh?
