We're asking $10,000 but are open to offers that are reasonable. I'd like to move this out of our driveway because we have just purchased a 25RQ and it's crowded!

Bought new in 1998. Structurally in great condition. New tires, greased bearings and new bushings this month (prepped for a planned trip) before idea to upgrade was hatched.

Cosmetically
1. Finish is faded a bit in areas
2. Water stain on the entry way linoleum.

Questions are welcome.

Mike

Francene, I have sent you a PM with some information.

To others, I can't seem to find the edit post button...but I want to edit my original post to reflect a price change to 10,000.00. This is more comparable to similar units on the market I believe.

Mike, I fixed your post for you.

I think lowering your asking price was the right thing to do.

I will. BTW I posed the following question to BF Industries on 8/25/08 and received the following answer.

**Some background, With the BF un sheltered I left the front starboard window open about 3 inches by mistake during the last winter season and rain blew in through the opened window.

Q: We own A 1998 1500 series 17 foot.
Water has gotten in by the starboard front window and discolored the
flooring (blue-ish stain) in the entryway. Is this only cosmetic or do
I need to be concerned about the subfloor? What is the subfloor
material? Thank you. Bigfoot Serial #: 08489


A: The floor is the first component that is laminated into the molded shell;, so I doubt water has caused this stain, but you can tell if the floor is soft.
The floor has a 1/2" plywood sub straight that the lino is adhered to.


My observations are the floor is NOT soft and I don't believe there is any hidden damage either.

Our kids were younger at the time we bought this and not so stain resistant so my wife made cushion covers from a stripped heavy fabric. The original cushions and fabric have never seen the light of day, aside from when the covers get washed. The stripped fabric is a little bold but it was durable denim like and heavily discounted at the time and there was just enough left on the bolt to do the job. I think it cost around 6 bucks to buy the lot.

I'll post a zoomed in pict of the stain for you a little later today as well as the interior w/o the covers.

More pictures.

BTW, when viewing the dinette please note there is a bunk overhead. It was an optional storage area that folds down to a bunk bed for a young person. Our 4 year old used it two seasons.
