Just wanted to send the word out on this forum that we are putting our 1989 17’ Bigfoot
on the market. We just moved up to a larger model, a Bigfoot
5th wheel. Since the 5th wheel needs some work before we take it out, we are taking the 17’ to the Northern Oregon Gathering this weekend. We’re planning to put the 17' on Craig’s List soon, but thought we should send the word out in case Oregon is closer for any of you, since we will be there anyway this weekend.
We’ll get the regular ad out the next week, but I can tell it is in really great shape. It has the fold-down bunk so it sleeps five. It’s fully self-contained with a bathroom with shower and sink. It is wired for solar
, including a Trace C-40 charge controller. We are keeping the solar panel
, because it has worked out great for us to camp with no hookups. We also installed a top-of-the line Fantastic fan with rain sensor, which works beautifully. It has a new, ultra-quiet water pump installed last summer. To top it off, we just put on new tires
a couple of months ago. The price includes a weight
We had no problems towing it with our Toyota Sienna minivan with a towing package. The trailer weight
listed on the sticker is 2,884 pounds.
We will get take new pictures of the exterior soon, but for now here are some interior shots. We took these pictures a couple of months ago because we intended to post our bed modification on the modifications forum, but never got around to it. We always found the bed to be crowded, so we modified it so that the bed now folds out to 54 inches wide (a true full-size). The only other 54” bed in a 17’ Bigfoot
I know of was this one: http://www.bigfootowners.com/gallery/mods.php#mods
but they took out the bathroom, which we really like having.
Please email if you are interested or maybe we will see you at the NOG. Thanks!
