Wishing you the best of luck with your sale.
Time will tell if this purchase is or is not a scam attempt. A new Bigfoot with all my additions, especially airbag modified suspension, and 120W solar panels is not really available from Bigfoot and if it would be the price could be over $40K. When I was buying this trailer in 2008 the first asking price was in the mid forties. He had questions about softer suspension. When I install the airbags I measured the difference at different air pressures with USB accelerometer and at 10-15 PSI it was improved by 25%. He had several questions about it, the compressor on board, so, time will tell.

George.

Just Courious what the reason was given why they couldn't pay cash when they pick up the trailer? This reeks of a scam. Anytime they have to WIRE the money something stinks! BTW just cause his english is good Just means he's an educated SCAMER! Good Luck!

Updated survey says 11 to 0. This includes us and FBI. Quick conversation with the FBI agent, my wife called, concluded with a very high probability that it is a scam most likely from Nigeria. We just exchange signatures on the sale agreement with long distance delivery at full price splitting fuel cost. We should be there on Monday.
Thank you for all your feedback and be careful.
George.

Wow! The power of the multitude of friends!
So glad to hear you actually contacted the FBI.
Good thinking!
Safe travels to deliver and back your Bigfoot.

Don't know yet. After our trip to EU for 3 month we will make a decision. Our options, in likely order, are:

- Short/High Mercedes Sprinter with my conversion (all diesel and electric appliances, no LPG). I will look Ford Transit and Fiat Ducato in EU assuming they are coming to our shores soon.

- Small towing vehicle, preferably diesel and 13' - 15' FG trailer either new or no older than 2010.

- Keep the 99 F350 PSD and above like trailer with new towing vehicles in the future when more diesels would become available.

We use our Bigfoot rarely because it was too big and cumbersome. A van we would likely use more often. When we had 77 and 85 VW Westfalias a decision to go camping was spontaneous, we missed that aspect.
George.

I remember my Dad's cadillac Eldorado, huge v-8, air suspension, ride all day and never feel a bump. Then my first Mustang, so loud you could not hear the radio and after and hour you were beaten to death. Do you see the similarity, your big Bigfoot met your needs and now another smaller trailer will meet your needs, having both makes you appreciate the other.

Saud,
In the event George may have already sold his Bigfoot, there are at least 3 other 25' listed here for sale here--

Please note that George`s trailer is a 21 footer, not a 25 footer

That model number 25B21RB translates as

Series 25B - Which means winterized package with heated tanks and double glazed windows, plus extra insulation in the walls

21 footer

RB - Rear Bedroom


The 25 foot ones would be a 25B25 (and either FB - front bed, or RB - rear bed)

Dear Mansour,
The trailer has been sold and delivered, sorry. All along we were letting you know that our planned long trip put time pressure on selling the trailer. Unfortunately, there were too many questions in your transaction:

1.Our original agreement was that you would wire funds to our account or come to Portland and deliver funds in person – did not happen.

2.We were contacted several times by a person from WorldWide and their inaptitude raised serious doubts about reality of this transaction.

a.Person involved with logistics and shipping, did not know if Portland has a port and did not know were Oregon is. We were told that the transfer of funds would be by a company check. She asked us how we would like to take care of the transfer. It was not our responsibility to make arrangements to ship the trailer to Texas nor Saudi Arabia. These arrangements should have been made without our involvement.

b.During the last phone call the person asked us to deliver the trailer to the closest RV dealer and we would be paid by them. When we asked which one, the answer was the closest. WorldWide is likely a very legitimate business, but in our case it truly felt like a scam. We called the deal off.

There are Bigfoots advertised in this forum, but I would suggest to:

1.Sign the sale agreement and transfer funds in person to seller’s satisfaction.
2.Hire a vehicle moving company to move the trailer to Texas.
3.Hire WW to ship it overseas.

We are sorry that this transaction did not happen, wishing you the best of luck.

George.
