Kevin said one chair from the pix was not there, so the sales person was going to look in offices to see if someone took it. He said you could see where it sat.
Hopefully they can find it.

And we are looking ahead to retirement with this purchase.

Whew. That's a lot of beautiful trailer at that price. Congratulations, I know you'll enjoy it and I hope to see it someday.

Very nice trailer! I own a Burro 13' that I love but like you would like to go bigger when the wife retires. I was looking at Airstreams but even on the Airstream forums many of the owners said they thought the Bigfoot was better built with less up keep and better four season camping. Now doing my homework on the newer Bigfoots. That is a really nice trailer but looks really heavy? Regardless, congratulations and have fun!

Thanks for the welcome, Kai, but my original post was kind of tongue-in-cheek. I have been on this forum for years, first with a 13' Burro, then a 17' Uhaul VT which we still have, and now the Bigfoot we just bought .

I hope you enjoy your Amerigo. It is a camper that I have always been interested in. I think I like the windows and the interior design. It seems more spacious than our VT.

Hi, CindyL,

Well duh on me, there it is: you're a senior member and I didn't even look! (Funny; and a missed chance for me to laugh--except at myself.)

Welcome to your Bigfoot, at least.

We like the amerigo size, weight, and floor plan a lot, though since ours is currently empty, we're going to nudge things a little when we put it back together. For one thing, we're going all-electric and are debating if we'll even "alow" shore water.

Your bigfoot is gorgeous...such spaciousness!

Best, and thanks for the reply!

Welcome to the Bigfoot family!

I really like those Silver Clouds! Have seen several for sale over the years. Yours looks to be in very good shape.

When you get it home I'm curious how long the beds are. We are very fond of any twin bed set up since we have different sleeping habits and I'm a Princess and the Pea person... where he is comfortable sleeping on a rock!

I have palmar and plantar fibromatosis and need to be in warmer weather in the winter when we retire, and we both love southern FL where we have vacationed the last 4 years.

It needs updating, but plugged in, it worked. I will post pix later when Kevin emails them. Here is the link:1988 Bigfoot Silver Cloud 28 Travel Trailer for sale in Eugene, OR

So, there you go. We pick it up in April. The RV place will have it ready by then, so we can tow it home.

Lizbeth,

I won't see it in person until the middle of April. That is when we pick it up. Kevin said that the beds were generous in size, and that we should leave them, since they are built-in (He can talk. The cats will all pile on me ).

Guessing that was tongue-in-cheek, but one forum member reported trying to get Escape to build a trailer that way, and they declined, saying it would make the back of the trailer "too floppy." A reminder that much of the interior of many eggs is structural.

Congratulations. So nice to know that there will be another Silver Cloud on the road. We're currently returning from Florida enroute to home base in British Columbia in ours. If you ever want to compare notes, don't hesitate.

Thanks, Lance. I know I'll have operational questions once we pick it up in April. I look forward to communicating with you in the future. Two basic questions right now: Do the Silver Clouds come with built-in leveling jacks? It was pouring rain when I looked at it, so I didn't notice. And, is the trailer considered a 30 amp or 50 amp unit? Some campgrounds have special spots for 50 amp trailers.

Thanks!

Ours is wired for 30 amps. It has standard manually operated jacks.
