Wow, that is a beautiful trailer, Rick.

Could I ask you a couple of questions? I'm familiar with the eggs, but not specifically with the Li'l Bigfoot.

1) How much does it weigh? (Dry or with minimal extra gear)

2) What are the walls covered with on the inside? Is it fabric... or?

Thanks,

Raya

Nice looking trailer, I'm sure it will go to home where it will be much loved.

Cool looking magazine rack too. Is that stock from BigFoot or an owner mod?

Raya,

Thanks.
According to the original New Vehicle Information Statement the Shipping weight is 475kg (1050lbs) and the GVWR is 647kg (1425lbs). The new axle is rated for 2200lbs. I would pull ours with a van.
The walls are covered with a fabric similiar to a headliner in a car of the 1980s.

Donna,

The magazine rack was in the trailer when we bought it. It appears to be a factory thing. We have enjoyed the little egg.

Hello Rick:

Does this egg have bunk beds in the front so that it will sleep 4? Has there been any damage or leaks? Does the door lock from the inside and out?

Thanks,
Carl (Texas)

That's what Escape uses. Kind of a circular thing decade to decade. Go out to your tug, sit inside and lookup. Nice stuff!

Carl,

The front could be set up for bunk beds, the brackets on the bottom of the top bunk cushion are missing and the support legs are also missing. From pictures I've seen, it appears these parts can be easily fabricated. Usually our kids wanted to sleep outside in a tent. As it is now it can sleep three.
There were a couple of leaks which have been repaired. The vents leaked when we first got it and were replaced.
There is no outside damage except a small scratch, about 2 inches long, on the drivers side back corner and another on the rear bumper.
The door lock works both inside and out. There is also a screen door which I forgot to mention in the ad.

Rick

Thanks Rick for the quick answer. I just want to be sure I am understanding you correctly. The back cushion of the front bench has a hard backing so that it can flip up in a horizontal position which would make the top bunk? The brackets are missing on the top bunk (underside) which would receive the poles (also missing), but are the brackets on the bottom bunk (bench seat) still in place?

Could you post or send pictures of the brackets on the bottom bunk and have someone hold the top bunk in a horizontal mode in order that I can see what it would look like if the top bunk were functional.

We are very interested in your trailer and know it would probably enjoy some warmer weather down here in Texas...if I want to discuss purchasing, what is the best way to contact you?

Carl,

There is a picture of a 13.5' Bigfoot front bunk in this thread. I don't know if it is the same or not. I have seen some trailers use a couple of the square fold down legs like on the kitchen table for the front bunk.

Interesting, from the one photo it looks like Bigfoot used square "pads" of stainless steel resting on the front (lower) cushions instead of pole sockets. The poles do kind of smush the Boler cushions on their way to the sockets, but the plates look like they might dig in too. Wonder how it works in real life.

That caught my eye too. Makes me wonder if the plates were not meant to go under the cushions, but the poles look a little too short for that. Mod maybe?

I also found the tail lights interesting. They look something like those seen on one of the unidentified trailers for sale posted recently. No time to search for pictures today.

Judit, Carl,

I'll be happy to take more pictures. What a change in weather here, the pictures that I posted were taken yesterday. Today we have about 3 inches of snow and it's still coming down.

The poles from the top bunk down require the bottom cushion to be moved a little to make use of the deck holes.

And a close up, there is a hole on each side. the one on the left in the bigger picture is actually in the middle and is how you can access a storage area.

When they advertise this camper as sleeping four, they mean two adults and two children.

Sorry for taking so long to reply.
You have me learning more about picture taking and size reduction then I thought I would ever need. The old gray cells have been buzzing today.

Let me know if you are still interested. If you look at a map, we are located at the bottom end, south end, of Lake Huron.

Thanks for the great pictures Rick,

We have a few more questions and would like to talk to you over the phone. Can you send a number and a best time to call to my fiberglassrv e-mail or to green.satx[at]att.net.

Thanks,
