Well Im heading down to mine tonight and will be spending the night in it! I have the portapottie with antifreeze in the flushing tank and some in the lower tank, just dont have running water since its not worth it for a night here and there and keep rewinterizing it lol.

For some reason I couldn't look the pictures on the old link.
It is bumped to the top and all the pictures are there. It really is a great trailer and I'd love it to go to a good home. I'm close than driving to Canada for a new one and there's no waiting (or border crosssing hassles, or licensicng and tagging issues either).

I have it listed on craigslist too. Hope that helps.

Is the 6'3 the height of the ceiling, or the length of the bed? It would seem odd for them to make a wider 4500.

Cathy, I have been watching your thread. I am surprised that your trailer has not sold yet. It seems like a nice one.

The interior height. I guess as people are getting bigger, so are the trailers. Shaq would still have to go custom made....

I agree with all that, but it is still 37 hours ONE WAY. My dogs would hate me and I might not be able to ever stand up again.

It's a great looking trailer, I'm sure it will sell!

If I had one I would rather spend most nights in it than at my regular home!

Have a great time!!

For the money you mentioned a newer Scamp 16 or Casita 17 are in your price range. Lots made so there are lots out there. For a little more a new Parkliner or Casita 17 can be had. Casita will to be cheaper now than in a month or so. Love the first gen Tundra. Wish I still had mine. Best of luck, Raz

I have a fair number of miles on this Tundra and I haven't had a single problem. I just can't get rid of a vehicle like that.

The Scamps and Casitas are nice, but neither are quite tall enough.

Near as I can tell, only the EggCamper, Parkliner, and Bigfoot meet my height requirement. Some of the others SAY they do on their specs, but the actual interior height is up to 2 inches shorter than stated.

When we were shopping I spent a lot of time reading here as I am sure you have. One comment still stands out. Bed size is more important than ceiling size. Most of the time you are either sitting or laying down. Raz

As others have indicated they are two *very* different trailers!

I can tell you that the Bigfoot is a nice trailer and has stood the test of time re quality but it is also a lot bigger and a lot heavier. They are a very popular choose here on the wet coast. A 21' on the Real World Weights listed here came in at 6360lbs total. In addition the Bigfoot is wider than most tugs so that will also result in a bit higher gas consumption on top of the extra weight. As far as inside space goes well as you can guess the Bigfoot wins hands down. As far as winter camping goes it will depend on where you plan to camp in the winter and the Bigfoot - some of them have a winter package option - which includes extra insulation etc.

On the other hand I have a 16' trailer and spend well over 120 days a year out in it and have had the good fortune to be able to do a number of trips in the past couple of years of a month & longer, some of them were doing the snow bird thing & involved a lot of miles. The little trailer was just fine for that. Even works out fine with two people and large labrador dog, although it feels a lot roomier with just one person in it. Due to its lighter weight I get good gas mileage towing it so a round trip of 6000 miles or more doesn't sting to badly. But now that I have done a few longer in length trips with it I now have my eye on a little bit bigger trailer for the day when I can spend more than a month camping in the south in winter. Bigfoot is one of two possible fiberglass trailer brands I will mostly likely move up to

As others have said which is the better trailer for you depends a great deal on how deep your pockets are in regards to gas funds and what style of camping you think you will be most comfortable doing.
