First, do not believe the factory "dry weight" that is often used by sellers and appears in Bigfoot
Industries literature. No 17' model every left Armstrong, B.C. at 1900 lbs. My 1980 15B17G Standard with nothing on board but propane
weighs 2390 lbs. Ready to camp it weighs 2700-2800 lbs depending on how we pack. The weight
change happened gradually due to larger and heavier equipment. Then there is the issue of different models and their standard equipment. Bigfoot
made 3 models in the 1500 series 17' trailer. They are Standard, Deluxe, and Spiritwing. Our Standard model has no shower, hot water heater, or oven. That equipment was included in the other models. In 2005 the 2500 (17.5') models began and weight continued to climb.
