Wayne and I live in Lebanon, Oregon. We did own a 13' Boler but sold it four years ago for a small Fleetwood. Live and learn. Fleetwood is now sold. We are back to looking at fiberglass but something bigger than 13'. Possibly a Park Liner but keeping an open mind.

We will be sleeping in the back of our Honda Pilot at NOG A39 unless a yurt opens up.

Looking forward to a tour of fiberglass homes.

Looking at a 1996 Bigfoot M-17-Center Bath today. Good news it is only an hour from our house and a reasonable price. From my reading, I am a little concerned about the bed size for two people. Ideally, would like the rear goucho to be a permanent bed and then use the dinette for sitting.

Hi and welcome to the group

The side bed in the 17' BigFoot is a bit smaller than the dinette. For that reason most 17' Bigfoot owners seem to either: a) Use the dinette as a bed and install a table at the side couch or; b) Redo the side couch into a larger bed.

If you look under "BigFoot-USA" For Sale on the <<<fiberglass-rv-4sale.com>>> site you can see a 1979 17' Bigfoot that has the side couch converted to a permanent bed.

That said, IMHO, the 17/17.5' BigFoot is one of the best choices for a mid-sized, single axle trailer out there.

BTW: I thought that the terms small and Fleetwood were mutually exclusive !!!

The handshake agreement has been struck and the exchange will happen tomorrow. We will be a bigfoot owner.
