We have had truck campers and then a 17.5' bigfoot trailer that seemed like it would finally suit us perfectly. However we found the rear bed to squishy and hard to climb over each other to get out. Sold it then bought a 21' bigfoot that we took 4. GrAndkids and us camping last weekend. We are sold on the 21' Bigfoot. We can tow it with my wife's new Pathfinder or my older 2004 Toyota, 4Runner. Going away for 5 days next weekend for dry camping on the Harrison River BC. Look at either the 17.5' or the 21 Bigfoot. The residual value is very strong also.

These trailers rarely if ever sway, but I still suggest a sway bar, inexpensive, easy to use and good insurance.

I have been waiting to see you post something so I could tell you how much I enjoyed reading the Tilting book you recommended. Had to get it from lending library. Thank you for suggesting it.

Thanks Gary Carolyn,

I assume the book you refer to is the illustrated book about going to cut wood.

We know an author on the island Roy Dwyer who has written four books about life on Fogo and in Tilting. We have them all plus a number of other books on island life. One that is hard to get but good is Latitudes of Melt. I've read it twice and visited every location mentioned in the book.

We have another book about women of Newfoundland, regular everyday, maybe not everyday women. They were real strength in NL because the men were often away for extended periods. The title may have been Island Maids.

It's how they lived and live that make the people special.

Thanks for letting me know.

Not sure if I need a translator or an update on what I missed in regards to what Parkliner and Lil Snoozy have come up with recently in regards to the engineering of frames & body design- built in anti sway? Really? When did that happen and how?

My computer has been having problems ever since I updated Google Satellite- it stops accepting keyboard strokes every now and then. Closing some of the multiple windows I run didn't seem to help. Currently this is the only window accepting keystrokes. I think the aerodynamic design was like one of the initial things they mention on the websites. Reinforced at the factory visits. And I couldn't italicize think...sorry about that
