We are looking at a listing for an '06 Bigfoot
17.5 CB. Just confirmed with the owner that it is missing the following options that we really wanted:
1. AC (we are in Phoenix, AZ and love the desert, so would be trailering in hot weather a lot)
2. Exterior shower (we are avid hikers so would prefer to at least be able to wash the dirt off our feet and shoes prior to going inside)
3. Stereo (we go into nature to be quiet, but would enjoy some low tunes when inside)
Hoping to hear from those of you are quite skilled at modifications on whether or not we could easily and affordably add these options at a dealership or service center? We are both very good at home improvements but are not electrically or mechanically-minded, so would not be inclined to do it ourselves unless it was fairly idiot-proof.
Post script: after reading in another thread how difficult (perhaps impossible) it is to fit two adults comfortably on one of the sleep areas of a 17.5, I am also wondering if others have found a way around this that still allows for a bed to be made at all times and a dinette to be used for eating? If we can't address that issue, we will have to look more closely at the Escape
or perhaps a Casita
... we can make do sharing a full, but there is no way we can share a twin bed.
Thanks for your input!
