Thanks. I didn't know what to tell him. My brother uses an Ecoboost f150 to tow a 9000 pound stick built and has no trouble. I have no idea how strong the v6 is on a Dakota.

yeah well....

Thar Ford technology (Mazda's really) gives some pretty impressive numbers....twin turbos? 325hp out of of 2.6L engine ?!?!?!


sort of complicates the discussion about "Can I tow a BF with a V6?"..don't it? My V6 is 3.7L.....and would NOT tow anything weighing 9000lbs...


EcoBoost is a series of turbocharged, direct-injection gasoline engines produced by Ford and originally co-developed by German company FEV Engineering and Mazda.The Ecoboost 2L and 2.3L are Ford turbocharged versions of the Mazda L engine. EcoBoost engines are designed to deliver power and torque consistent with those of larger-displacement (cylinder volume), naturally aspirated engines, while achieving about 30% better fuel efficiency and 15% fewer greenhouse emissions, according to Ford.

I know right? He gets 14 mpg towing too! If I could afford it I would get one but the Bigfoot is a big enough expense without adding that in the mix.

The gaucho made into a bed is 26.5" x 78". I didn't take photos of the dinette made into a bed but I measured 44" x 77.5" when I just checked for you. Let me know if you need anything else. John.Click image for larger version

Just to be sure I understand, the gaucho bed can be pulled out to be made into a bed? If so, in the bed position , how wide is the bed?
Thank you,
Bob

42" wide as a bed with the gaucho. Yes. It slides out into a bed. In the stock configuration you could not open the bathroom door with the gaucho made into a bed. Ours has a folding solid wood door that lets you open and close the door even when the gaucho is deployed as a bed. We also have the stock bathroom door so you can put it back as soon if you want.Click image for larger version

yeah, that's better....

when I first saw the 28" number, it didn't sound right....


it's the usual (other than the FB model) BF bedding arrangement: 42" wide deployed....or as I like to call them: generous single bed for one....OR....if you're in your twenties and in lust, it's a double....


that's why there have been so many bed mods in BF 17s....seen lots of great examples/ideas over time....mine was this: the "T-bed" mod in my CB model (uses the dinette table to fill in the area between the fridge and the kitchen)....makes a GIANT bed for the top 42"...then it's 40" wide the rest of the way


"you can't have EVERYTHING...where would you put it?"

The 28" was with the gaucho closed. I got my pictures mixed up. We really love the trailer but health wise we need a permanent bed. We want to get a 25' so we can.

Bigfoot questions

John,
A few more questions some due to our limited knowledge of Bigfoots. Is this Bigfoot insulation with heated tanks and are the windows dual pane? Also, what size are the tires and how old are they and when was the wheel bearings inspected and repacked. Do you by chance know the weight and tongue weight of the trailer and are those weights with empty trailer or packed for a trip?
Thank you,
Bob

Bob, it DOES NOT have the 4 season package. As for the weights, I will look them up later. I am going to my daughter's wedding rehearsal and I can't right now. I will dig in later tonight and get you the information.

I believe that they are double but not triple pane like the 4 season package. I will look later. I can say that it takes very little a/c or heat to keep it comfortable. It is well insulated in any case. J.
