Trailer: 1994 Bigfoot 21 ft
Posts: 6
Greetings,

I am new to this post and i feel like i should introduce myself - i am sure that will unravel over time....

I bought my bigfoot in January of this year and have been updating/tweaking it ever since. One item I am having trouble tracking down is the two aluminum 'pins' (i am sure there is a specific name for them) that lock the front window rock guard down against the trailer.

Also, while on this topic of rock guard, if anyone out there knows where i can find the trim piece that goes around the rockguard (vinyl i presume) to protect the edge of the lid from rubbing against the trailer when closed.

Oh, my bigfoot is a 1994 21 foot.

thanks!

simon

Hi, We tried to replace these pins last year with no luck. We contacted Bigfoot and they sent us to one of their dealers but we were told that the product was no longer available. The dealer told us that He had seen some people use an alternate pin but could not help me locate one. If there is a suggestion out there we are also interested.

That makes three of us. Our new-to-us 2003 BF is also missing one. Hope somebody knows a source.

I may have a lead on a 'guy on the inside'...if you know what i mean (the factory is 15 minutes from my house). I hope there's no hit out on me now.

Mine is a little bit different from the above photo. I can get those from my local distributor http://www.rosmanrv.com/

will let you guys know. my 'guy' is calling me wednesday.

I'm still interested in the rock guard "pins" that Donna and Chris show or if anyone else can give more precise information for ordering. Simon-any luck with your "inside" guy?

Tony, my new Littlefoot needs one pin replaced, so now I've been keeping my eyes open. An older sticky I saw while out walking the other day seemed to have a similar, if not the same, type of pin. Maybe scrounging some up from a trailer graveyard would pan out for you? That's what I'm going to try.

BTW the PO drilled a hole through the whole assembly and put a metal pin through it horizontally as a fix. Seems to function fine, just not the original design.

If not your RV supply store then I suggest a motorcycle dealer that has a body or repair shop. It comes in rolls and you can pay by the foot.

Simon was last logged in to FiberglassRV on 12th May 2008 - 11:43 PM. However, if you click on his name in the post, it will take you to his profile where there's a link to send him an e-mail. Maybe you'd like to try and get in touch with him that way?
