November 2009 we purchased a 1980 17' Bigfoot (model 15B17G) and brought it home to Texas from Ohio. We began a series of projects including air conditioning, new upholstery, new flooring, new mini blinds, new battery, new tires, new wheel covers, new interior lighting, new clearance lights, new battery, new sewer hose, new tongue jack and many smaller items. For our first trip, we took our 3 oldest granddaughters camping in March. Then we attended the Bluebonnet Rally in April. We're not finished but are very happy with the results up to this point. Follow the link below to photos of our trailer.

Looks like it's in nice shape, Tom. Clean and very roomy. Enjoy it!
When do you use the Compact Jr.?

Best,

Nice slideshow, Tom. You really have your trailer shined up. I didn't realize there was an earlier version of the Bigfoot logo. He doesn't look as friendly!

Fran,
The Compact Jr is parked in the backyard. We'll sell it at some future date. We don't need two trailers.

BobB,
Don't know when Bigfoot switched to the "kinder and gentler" creature for their logo. The old one is different.

Tom,

Beautiful Bigfoot! I'm in the process of restoring an '87 Lil Bigfoot. I noticed from your pictures that you have the same molding around your kitchen counter as in my unit. Do you have any idea where I might find a replacement or something very similar in style.

Thanks,
Carl
San Antonio

Carl,
I have no idea where you can find the metal countertop trim with plastic insert. With the recent retro trends with formica tables there must be sombody who makes the same stuff.

Michael,
The wheel covers are 14" "Smoothies" which I bought online from hubcapmike.com.

Smoothie Hubcaps 14 inch

Looks really cute! Love the kitchen - the woodwork looks to be in great shape. I like the red and green color scheme too.
