Wanted: 17ft Bigfoot Travel Trailer

Hello,

I'm looking for a late 90s early 2000 model 17ft Bigfoot travel trailer, that has winter package ie. Dual pane windows, enclosed underbelly and larger fridge. Looking in Alberta, BC or Saskatchewan. Budget is $12,000. Thank you

I think what you might be looking for is the 17.5' BigFoot. It's only a little bigger but is a lot heavier. There are several listed in your area at:

Bigfoot Travel Trailers - Canada | Fiberglass RV's For Sale

BTW: What will you be pulling with, as mentioned, the 17.5 is a lot heavier than the 17'

Good Luck

You might look for a 2005 or newer when they had an option of heated tanks and double pane windows. The years you posted those option were not available. The model you want is a 25B17.5 CB or G. CB=center bath and G=Gaucho.

Keep your eyes on Fiberglass-rv-4sale.com. There is currently a 1999 17' Bigfoot for sale in Calgary within your budget but not with the winter package.

A Bigfoot 17.5 with winter package for $12000 would be a very good deal. Good luck.

I should clarify that when I said 17ft I did mean the larger 17.5ft model was my trailer of choice.

I had thought winter packages were available starting around 1995 as an option for the 17ft models?

Individually heated tanks aren't as big a deal as long as the tanks are enclosed in the underbelly of the trailer, so the furnace can keep them warm. Could swear I read somewhere that they also had thermal windows, that's where most of the heat would be lost, so I really hope they did come with them in those years. 2005 is definitely a lot newer then I was looking at buying... But obviously for the right price I'll take it

I do check fiberglass rv4 sale, as well as Craigslist and kijiji daily. I did see that model for sale and like you said it is without the winter package so that is a no go for me. I really want to do winter camping in the Rockies so that is a must have option for me. Thanks though, it did look like a great trailer from the pictures.

A 2003 21ft RB model sold in Red Deer, Alberta on kijiji about 3 weeks ago, fully loaded with winter package for $9500. Sold within 12hrs of being posted... Really mad I missed it, but realized later on I want the smaller 17ft model for my tow rig. So I'm hoping to get lucky like who ever purchased that Bigfoot

There is currently a 2003 17.5ft with winter package for sale in Vancouver for $16,000. They are firm on price. But it's been listed since June and as of 3 weeks ago still hasn't sold... So I don't know, don't think my asking price is that low. By yeah your probably right on the luck part, thanks

I may be mistaken but I don't think they started to make the 17.5' that you are interested in until 2003? or there about. Prior to that it was a 17'. Most of the 17.5' I have seen are being sold in the neighbourhood of $15,000 or more. If you can pick one up for less that it would be a real deal.

Ic, well if that is the case as long as the 1995-2002 17ft models have a winter package then I'm still interested. Though the extra space would be nice...
