Well, when you do, make sure and get it back on really good, I can't follow you and Mary everywhere.

We haven't given too much thought to the tradition of naming our trailer yet.

Upon further reflection M-EGG-A doesn't quite fit as a Bigfoot doesn't really have the eggshape like the Casita, Boler, Trillium, etc.


How about YETI (as in the Tibetan Sasquatch/Bigfoot)? I can hear Sue now "Rick - we've been driving for hours.....are we there YETI?"

:laugh :laugh

Rick, why don't you look around for an Onan Micro-Lite 2800 that runs on propane and put in the storage compartment. I found a used one in the Buy and Sell and installed it my trailer, just turn on the propane start it up from inside the trailer.

* * * * * With the propane (2-30lbers) and battery cover on my Bigfoot I don't know where to mount it, if at all. *:wak *
One generator owner removed one of his propane tanks and put the generator on the hitch where that tank used to be. If I remembr correctly, the propane bottle and the generator were within about 5 pounds of each other in weight. He then enclosed the generator and propane bottle with a homemade aluminum plated hitch box.

Tow Jam - won't work PCD....ha!

I've finally succumbed to the EU2000 and it won't fit under my fiberglass 2x30lb-Propane+Battery cover............it was a great idea though.

P.S. I threw the blender in the trailer when I got home - MARGARITAS!

And before you all start on me, we dry camp in the boonies - and now we are going to live a little! :o

(ya...ok.....it's still sad...............:) )

Does that mean I can get my money back down the road? :o

I sure like Dave's checkerplate box for the genset. I just don't have the room on the hitch......hmmmm
