I was thinking the same thing but the body shell shape, fender flares, roof line, front window/gravel guard, etc all scream early Bigfoot. It looks to me like someone did some major body work and used non-original windows (BF windows were/are made by Sun-View Industries) on the sides and rear. The front window and entry door are definitely original.

Hard to tell from the pix but it looks like the sides are not as smooth as an original body, especially the upper half of the right side. That would suggest significant fiberglass work. Why anyone would go to that much trouble though is beyond me. Unless it was badly wrecked at one time and that was how they "repaired" it. I would be curious to know how much it weighs.

Could this be a shell that someone purchased, and finished themselves?

Past owner told me he gutted it and refinished it to be a mobile office for his small business, he than exchanged the desk for the cupboards and counter top and used it for camping for years.

My 94 was actually built in September 1993 and the serial number is 2B9TJFE10RV006266. If they use sequential numbers yours was built after mine. 7 units later. I'm thinking yours is a 94 but was a special order or something. I know sometimes employees or friends can get special deals on stuff. There was a boat on the Columbia River (probably still is on the river) built by employees of the boat maker and they called it "Reject" because it was built from parts that had cosmetic issues.

I would email Bigfoot with photos and see if they could shed some light on this.

Best of luck. Nice trailer too.

I recall there was a Bigfoot owners club or forum at one time. Would they be of any help?

Except for wine, I would not consider a 94 to be vintage.;-)

Lol me either, I thought it was older, regardless it's nice and clean, fully functional and ready to use, and I only payed $700 for it. Im happy. I have 4 other campers I'm buyer/seller/collector.

I don't think there is anybody here that would not be happy getting a deal like that.

Nothing better than a happy camper.

The serial number on my 87 lil bigfoot is 2B9LDFLA0H006102. I'm guessing they had the same counting digit series for all of the models but it would be interesting to know for sure.
