Hello Folks...

Hello,

My Name is Michael and my family and I are the proud 'new to us' owners of a 1986 17ft Bigfoot trailer. It may sound silly but I think the people here may understand-we are absolutely giddy about our new addition! This is the first trailer we've ever had and we love it Funny, I think we're (ok me..)are dealing with a bad case of 'trailer fever'...symptoms include:

. Constant forum reading
. Excessive trailer cleaning/polishing
. Staring out the window at our new BF with a huge smile
. Telling everyone we meet about our sweet new BF...

Hello, my name is Michael and I have 'Trailer fever'

Welcome Michael,

'Trailer Fever' is only the start of it. Then you get mod madness. Twofootitis being the final stage.

I'm sure others will pipe in with their treatment modalities.

Welcome Micheal, It is almost one year for me and my boler. Trying to finish my restoration/modification so I can go to the Prairie Egg Gathering in July. If I did not have the boler I would be chasing down a bigfoot right now!

A Boler was our original intention but it was just too tight. I've always loved the cool, retro look. Good luck with your restoration.

Yes, the fever is overpowering. I, too, find myself gazing out my back window in awe. Our first weekend trip was great and, although we have a two week trip to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia planned, we are searching for somewhere nearby to go before then.

Let's see now, about 6.5 years, several hundred nights, and and and.. Yup the fever is still alive and strong.
That's what you to look forward too.

Have you checked the 2012 Rally Map? There are 3 out your way coming up in the next month. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...aps-48254.html

Indigodave posted a good link about a site that helps find campgrounds.
A good Link

I tested it out for places in my locale and it showed many more than I knew about.

Hi Ginger and Byron,

Thanks for the welcome! We stayed in our BF for the very first time this weekend. As we live on the west coast, it was of course a downpour No problem, we were warm and dry inside...Yep, love it.

There really is no cure, disease can only be managed by regular camping trips. Or extensive mods that you can dream about using on future frequent camping trips. It's a tough malady but rarely fatal. Except to the bugs that hit the front of the trailer.
