It's too late Ken, but I think you should have had custom decals made and have it say: BIGgerFOOT

It's been fabulous following the build!

Hi Donna, Thanks for your decal idea, great play on words. We played with a couple of different ones but picked Westcoast Edition. Our second choice was the one below

Thanks Ken

I like the West Coast Edition too and mentioned it in an earlier post. But you have to admit, yours is definitely a BIGgerFoot than most!

Impressive work. I've seen boats lengthened. It makes good sense to lengthen a trailer, especially since you are renovating the interior. Congrats and keep the pictures coming.

Have been very busy could not work on the trailer for the last month. Found some free time so I started working on my closet / a/c cabinet, here is what is done so far. I have seen a menber use a fridge vent for his a/c and it looked great so I thought it would be a clean look to use two one for intake and one for exhaust. made a drip tray out of wood a covered with glass to water proof it ,the water will drip out lower vent. The venting is all done just need to panel and install A/C

Don't forget that air needs to flow from the side of the A/C to cool the condenser section:

Wow!!! You have done all this in LESS THAN A YEAR??? Although...I do have to say, the thought of cutting my little egg in half freaks me out...I figure I would probably let you do it though :-) Of course, you would have to let me live in your "new and improved" Bigfoot while the work was being done...'sigh', guess I could live with that! Looks GREAT! Can NOT wait to see the final pics!

Hi Bruce, I think condenser coil should be OK. I have fresh air coming in under and around the drip tray, here is a better picture of the air intake.



Monica , Thanks but if I had to start again I would not. It has been a looong year. We had planned to see the Oregon coast this Oct but I'm sure it will be just as nice in the spring . Trying to find a shop to finish, the glues and sealers don't work to well in the cold.

Thanks again, more pics soon

Just a few things that I can write off my list of things to do. I installed my ladder on the back of my trailer along with the bathroom window. The ladder was from a motorhome that was damaged at the bottom ,I just cut that part off and it fits great , it is mounted to the bumper so no real weight is on the fibreglass mounts . I put 1 inch of plywood in the wall to screw into for the mounts . Should be installing batteries and hooking up solar this weekend I hope

Take care

start of solar install

Got started with install of the solar / charging / inverter system today . Build two battery boxes for under the benches. Cut the hole through the back of the bench as to fit inverter, one end will be under the bench the other inside a small cabinet that will also house the fuse panels 110v and 12v. Putting things in place 55 amp charger and transfer switch will wire in tomorrow. That is it for how ,hope to get batteries in and wired soon
