Hi everyone. Thanks for all of the help you didn't know you were giving me over the last six months as I was lurking and reading posts to learn about what the best fiberglass RV for me would be.
We settled on a 1998 Bigfoot
21' towed by our 2007 Toyota Tacoma. We had been looking at the bigger Casita
models and found this Bigfoot
in a lower price range than we were looking and within a two hour drive of home.
When we went to take a look at the trailer, something Donna has said on here really rang true - it's more important to see how well a used fiberglass RV has been maintained than to just go on the year. This one is 15 years old, but doesn't look like it was used hard and was maintained with pretty meticulous records.
We've had it for two weeks and did a quick overnight at a full hookup park near home just to check everything out. The black tank was registering 2/3 full until we used the Flush King reverse flush attachment about 8 times and the water finally ran clear. The sensors now read empty when they are empty. Other than my victory over the poo sensors we haven't really done much with the trailer but are looking forward to some fun on the road.
This is our second trailer. Our first was a 16' 1959 stick trailer, so I'm used to roof leaks
and constant maintenance. It was a fun first trailer, but we're looking forward to more time camping and less time rebuilding/maintaining.
We are in Las Vegas and there is some great late fall/winter/spring camping in Death Valley and some of the surrounding hot springs nearby. We may be able to put together an informal camping weekend near here as our season goes a little later than most.
Looking forward to learning more about fiberglass RVs on here. Thanks for all of the help so far.
