No, I did not order this one. The dealer apparently ordered it for his inventory and he just got it in earlier this week. It has the following options: A/C, TV antenna, privacy curtain, roll away shower door,shower skylight, Windswept color interior. I like that it is not "loaded" as I would rather add things myself as I determine that I want or need them.

If memory serves me correctly (at my age who knows?? not me!!) Boardman RV was the Bigfoot dealer in Colorado until 2 or 3 years ago. Both what they say about their hitches and their Bigfoot sales may well be true. I really know nothing positive or negative about them. All that I am saying is that I think that they haven't been in the Bigfoot business too long.

Wow. Every scene in there with a chain-style hitch is like watching the incompetent "before" people in an infomercial. I like the idea of not needing to disconnect the sway bar to reverse. Not so sure about their claim that normal swaybars can't be used in the rain, though.

Bob, something you might consider. Easy to install. This is the one I have on my trailer. Currently $227 on Amazon with free Prime shipping. A godsend. Getting too old to enjoy hand cranking....lol.

Dan, It is my understanding that all Bigfoot trailers now come equipped with power jacks as standard equipment. Their website is confusing and poorly maintained, but look at the "standard equipment" page.
