Hello from Beaumont, Tx.

Hello everyone. Found this site doing a search on fgrvs' and it seems like there's alot of good info and good people on here. I recently bought a 1987 Bigfoot 17.5 camper and since it is my first fgrv I will be trying to learn as much as possible about it. Will mainly be used at my deer lease but will take some trips with it too. First step is to get it cleaned up and shiny.

Johnny; Welcome to the forum. There is a lot of good information available here on the forum. It looks like you have a 17G. I have a 1994 17CB. The G means G=goucho and the CB means center bath. The Goucho has an L shape couch that makes into a bed. The center bath has the bath center left side and a couch across the back. Both are nice units. Now for some of that friendly advice. Bigfoot did not make the 17.5 until 2004 0r 2005. Yours is a 17 not 17.5. I thought I had a 17.5 until I joined the forum and found out I had a 17.

It looks from the photo that you have the original axle with a 4"drop. Some of us with the Bigfoot 17 have changed to a straight axle lifting the trailer 4". I did just that and I'm glad because I drive on some pretty rugged roads. You probably have lots of plans for change already but if you go down forest service or BLM roads and fond your trailer dragging that's how you fix it.

have fun

Welcome to the website and to a very exclusive club of Texas Bigfoot owners. Your's is the 5th that I know of in the Lone Star State. I'm sure there are more that I've not met. Post more photos when you have time.
