Looking for Full Time Trailer for Cold Weather

Hello everyone,
The tornados that hit the DFW area 3 weeks ago attacked my Arctic Fox 5th wheel and totaled it and I’m now in the market for something else. I have been fulltiming for the last 7.5 years and looking for a travel trailer in the 25’ range that can handle cold winters. I have to be in Salt Lake every January and have planted my Arctic Fox for up to 3 weeks at a time in Park City so I can ski. Bigfoot is the only molded fiberglass shell camper I am aware of that makes something that meets y requirements but am looking for used and don’t want to spend $20K for a used model. Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi Jeff, welcome to FiberglassRV. You're going to run into size issues. Right now Bigfoot is where it's at based on your size requirement, but you'd also need to plan on spending more than $20K for a 25' USED Molded Bigfoot. And there's a big reason. Molded fiberglass trailers hold their value much more and for much longer than stick built trailers like your Arctic Fox. Sorry to give you the bad news, but didn't want you to think otherwise and be disappointed.

Good luck on your hunt.
