nice little units but pricey just the same. Though might be a good deal of the USA people as there dollar is worth way more than ours.

The slide-out belly drawer is interesting, but I can't help wondering how long it will be before someone thinks "I could carry my mobility scooter/motorcycle/jetski on that" which I feel may end in tears.

The pull out dog bowls really do it for me, I just need a 16 or 17 footer. Or dare I dream of a 19?. I see a lot to like which comes at a price. I have to wonder, why are we just now hearing about this? I mean this IS the FGRV forum and promoters don't make any effort to get the word out about their product? Are we supposed to look on Facebook or something?

Anyone else notice the pet crate built in under one of the dinette seats? Or did I see that wrong? What an idea to encorporate--maybe--in ours!

I find it makes little sense to lower the clearance by attaching an apparatus that can be easily damaged by a rock or a curb, and would be difficult to repair due to location.

It's actually a revisited Lil Bigfoot (that was a Boler mold set) on steroids.


I will be in Summerland, BC right after the first of the year and will try to get to Enderby/Salmon Arm for a look-see. They are all right up the 97 from here so I shouldn't get lost

Looks like a fun little FG unit, but if I'm reading it right, to get it outfitted comparably to a 13' Deluxe Scamp or Casita would put it out of sight.

Doesn't say if Canadian or US dollars, but either way the options seem pricey.

The pricing is about the same as the few other limited production 13'-15' FGRV's just coming on the market this past year. The site has Canadian $$$ prices. Multiply by about .71 for USD $$$


It costs a lot more to make a few new FGRV's than 1000's and, with 40 years experience, as does Scamp, they have a fairly decent business plan.

I like the fact there are no "screw covers" all over the with sealant outside to catch dirt. Nice clean design and I like the pull out bumper

Looks to moi that it has a bellyband just like the Lil' BigFoot and Boler from which it was derived. Only difference is that they put a strip of LED's in place of the usual cover. Look at the gallery pics.

Bob, I have a question about the recessed flat door. I know you once owned a Lil Bigfoot, and I believe it was the same as the Armadillo. The door appears to have a continuous hinge, and the shell bulges out just in front of the hinge. What keeps the door from contacting the shell? How far does it open?
