ent]hi there my wife and I bought this little Bigfoot 2 years ago and set about doing a full restortation. We have replaced everything and added a new awning and add-a room. I have attached some pictures to show the progress and can add more should anybody wish to see them. We will be at Maple Creek Bolerama in July hope to see some of you there.

Trailer: 92 Bigfoot 13.5 ft / 05 Freestar

I was lucky enough to find a 92 model in April this year. We had just bought a 75 Trillium in Quebec and half an hour along the way home we saw this Bigfoot(didn't know they made a 13') sitting for sale at a service station. I knew the Trillium was for sale immediately. The only problem is the lack of a grey water tank. Do you have one installed, and if so do you have details and photos. Thanks in advance.

I did not install one but I am thinking of puttint a shallow tank under the the trailer behind the the wheels. I have installed a lift kit to raise the trailer 3.5" so I am hopeing that will allow enough room for the clean out valve. I just installed a awning and an add a room that allows a little bit of extra space.
There is a RV dealer not too far form Vernon that has NOS parts for the bigfoot trailers going back to the mid 80's. KENKRAFT is the RV dealer in case you need some parts.
I will post some pics of the outside of the trailer along with the awning and the add a room in the next few days.

Very nice Derek. I was wondering when you were going to post some pics of your wood work. When you post some pics of the outside please include your tug vehicle!!!! I think the other members would like to see that also.
When I have some time I would like to come down and borrow or copy your template for the rear overhead.
BTW yesterday we stoped at a garage sale down the road from us. They had a 1975 13' Boler for sale for $5500. It had just come from the body shop with new paint. It was a terrible paint job and the interior was awful. The lino was peeling and lifting etc. Based on what I saw yours should be worth at least $10,000

Your trailer looks very nice inside - what did you have to do to renovate it? Ours required a total re-do.

WRT the last post - really? $10,000?

How much do you think one could get for a 1990 that is completely stripped but no longer leaking from every orifice? We'd love to sell and not have to complete the reno but we don't want to lose everything we paid for it.

I recently seen one on EBay that sold for $6,800 and it was still orginal. I am not sure what you could ask for the shell....do you have pictures of it?
