Refrigerator vents.

so if this trailer is lacking fridge vents then how can it possibly have a working fridge, which owners claim? Is it safe to assume that previous owners may have removed the vents which would explain the paint job on bottom??? Or would it somehow have come without them which just doesn't make any sense to me.

Maybe someone more familiar with Big Foots can answer. One explanation would be an all electric refrigerator that vents to the interior.

Ding ding ding... We have a winner. Heard back from seller. They apologized for not being clear enough. Stated that The fridge is only an ICEBOX. It has a furnace And a cook top stove. Also said that her father says the awning is there but mother says its not. Shall be a surprise when I get there tomorrow lol. Would kinda explain the bottom paint job, if they removed the fridge vents and did some fixing up then painted over???? Anyway fridge mystery solved!

I'll place another bet. I think the ice box is original.

We ordered our scamp without the fridge. One reason was that I did not want the vents that would allow spiders, mosquito, etc into the trailer. I also figured it was one less place for water to enter. We did not get the ice box either as I wanted the space. Ice cooler works for us.

Good luck with your day tomorrow.

I also think the bottom color is original. The stripe is still there.

Ding ding ding!!! You are on a roll today Nancy. Seller just emailed that indeed it came with the ice box originally. Maybe you should buy a lotto ticket lol


But



They said previously when asked about the two tone colour that the previous owners had painted the bottom half and they had the auto body shop paint tongue box to match the bottom.

Sorry I called your Lil' Bigfoot a Casita. I had the straight door in mind when I was typing however now that I think about Casita never put the straight door on 13 or 16 footers, only on the 17's.

Well there could be lots of reasons for painting, one that comes to mind..........'cause they wanted to.

People like the looks of Bolers which mostly are 2 toned. We have quite a few people on this site that have painted their trailers a variety of colors and patterns. So who knows why, probably isn't important.

And the trailer most likely never fridge just an ice box. Fridge is one of those turns that gets used freely.

Yes, get off the computer and go get that trailer.

I did notice yesterday you responded to my 2:00am post immediately and it struck me that it had to be maybe 4:00am in Saska.

So get to bed.
