Hi All:
Just came across this, this morning and it appears to be a very nice Bigfoot.

http://toronto.kijiji.ca/c-cars-vehicles-R...QAdIdZ174407039

The price is certainly very fair, and at $4000, a great deal for someone,
just don't have the funds myself, right now.
It is located just north of Toronto about 30 miles.
If anyone is truly interested, I would be willing to view/ take additional pictures for you, as I like the hunt and trailer shopping, even if not for me at the moment.

Cheers, Jake.

That makes 2 17' Bigfoots within a few miles of each other. I was hoping to take a trip up to see them both today.

I have contacted the one I posted and am waiting for a reply,
as Rich is interested and it does seem like a very good deal.
Good luck with your search as well Roy.
Have a great day!
Cheers, jake.

Hi All:

Further to my initial e-mail regarding this 17' Bigfoot.
The reason for my recent Sunday drive and visit to the RV Storage place, was to
view and take pictures of this trailer for Rich in the US.
He has decided that this is a little too large for his purposes right now, and
is no longer interested.
I took about 25 pictures of it, and can say that with a weekend of exterior cleaning and scrubbing, perhaps a wax job, after the fact, it is a really nice trailer.
The Interior, although original, is near MINT condition. Fabrics are clean and show next to no wear, and the woodwork excellent.
I am in NO way affiliated with the trailer, but did have the opportunity to meet and discuss the trailer with it's current owner of 9 years.
Unfortunately for me, it is too heavy for my car.

If anyone is interested, I will gladly forward the pictures, and provide a critique
on my visit to see it?

By the way, to sell in the next week or so, she will accept $3800 CDN for it.
She is a very lovely lady to speak with.

Cheers, Jake.

Looks like a super deal to me. That's about half of the 'going' price in this area! Of course, it has to be seen in person. Defects in plumbing, electrical, refrigeration, furnace, etc., could make the deal 'not so sweet'!
AND don't forget to check the date on those tires!
Good luck to someone!

I totally agree Michael.
I did spend over an hour checking it out, taking pictures
and looking through the binder that the seller has.
It includes: every manual for all appliances, the trailer itself and a
step by step, proper Winterizing article that they use.
It has been properly drained and winterized, as evidenced from
the Pink stuff in all drains and toilet etc.
It really is a great deal for someone, just too heavy for my car.

Thanks, Jake.

Well Jake;
You could get a different Tow Vehicle! My Bigfoot 17CB hits the scales at a full 3500 lbs when loaded normally!
That is the limit for my Honda Oddy with a WDH, added coolers for tranny and Power Steering, and the AirLift 1000 airbag lifters! It tows well and is a real treat to have a bathroom with shower, 4 burner stove with oven, and a real working freezer section in the fridge!. The 13' L'il Bigfoot, and our previous 13' Trillium were just a bit too tight for us, although we trailered across Canada and down to Florida several times. As we aged, our needs for more comfort over-ruled our 'smaller is better' attitude!
It does sound like a good deal at a price just a grand more than many of the Bolers, Trilliums, etc. I paid more than twice as much for my unit.
Good luck.

Mike:

I guess it's one of those good news/ bad news situations!
Bad news: Cannot afford another new/ used tow vehicle right now.
Good news: I really like the car I have now, and really have no need
or desire to change it, I just have to stay with-in my 3000 lb tow limit.
I just have to find an Egg that I can afford to buy,
and hopefully a fixer-upper, as I really like the challenge, the work,
and finally the end result.
So, my hunt continues, and I have several possibilities to follow up on,
so a little foot work, wait and hope one pans out.
That's Ok though, I enjoy the hunt and looking at all these great Fiber trailers,
I think it has become my new hobby, LOL!

Cheers.

Well, this great Bigfoot SOLD Today.
Purchased by a good friend of mine here in Ontario, he looked at
it today and bought it on the spot.
A little exterior scrubbing, and it will be a wondeful trailer.

Just as an FYI, he currently has a 17' Boler, that MAY be coming
available in the near future????
Will keep you posted.
Cheers, jake.
