Hi Gary, to FiberglassRV, we're glad you're here.

You'll have to stand in line for the cover. Lots of folks are wanting one. Since Bigfoot is back in business, I think most are hoping they'll start manufacturing the covers again.

Best of luck!

Actually Donna, Grant from Bigfoot responded to an email, and said one could be made and fitted! The only waiting I'll have to do is for enough cash saved up to get it done. Thanks all the same!

Did Bigfoot give you any idea on pricing? Interested in supply only, would like to self install.

I just ordered a replacement fender skirt from the Bigfoot factory early this month. Even though it was an older style not currently in production, the Bigfoot guys had it molded and shipped within two weeks. I was impressed with the great service.

Hello Roy, yes they told me it was a design from 1993. A little pricey at $500.00. That I believe was the price before he told me to come down to get it trimmed and fitted.

Regards,
Gary

Wow $$$$
10 years ago I made a mould off of my Manx dune buggies rt rear fender for a friend. A number of coats of a release wax, then glass and resin. It popped off great, no damage to my fender and the replacement piece was made from it. No gel coat or color but it all was painted later. Think it came out to be around $75. If you could talk some one into using their box for a mould......
Actually you wouldn't need to make a mould. If you're careful with the glass layup your finished product would only be a tad larger than the original, that may work out fine. There's my 2 cents worth
