Thinking of a 2013 Bigfoot 25B21FB

Hi all
We have been looking at this trailer and are pretty impressed. Any thoughts or experience with the new BF trailers? Any help with this decision is appreciated.
Rob

I see a base price of $38,995 I assume that means without any options. At rv.net folks seem pretty seem impressed and loyal with their truck campers. Were you thinking or maybe 4 season enclosed tanks or any options like the Onan Generator? I guess camperoutlet would be your dealer. If so do you know if they have a good reputation? I am not familiar with them.

Our understanding is that 4 season is std. We would get the generator option. I am familiar with that generator and a gen is a must for style of use.

Ok I see it now, I missed it about the tanks I was looking at the 17 footer which is my interest. From my reading on the forum in the past, If your tow vehicle can handle the all up camping wet weight, I think you'd be very pleased. I would love to see one in person some day. It sure is a pleasure to see them back in business.

Edit: FYI, I assume someone will say check out the 21 escape also so I might as well type it here.

We did look at one and we like it. We have no experience with BF so are hoping to get some advice from this forum. The 22 foot model will fit in our garage, so it would be our choice. I like the 25 foot better, but it will not fit. I have an F350 diesel so do not expect any towing difficulties.

Sounds good. If you don't get the feedback you are looking for here rv.net truck camper forum might be a good place for warranty or feedback about the company, how they treat their customers ETC. In any event, it is one beautiful trailer.

Rob, It might be worth the 20-25 dollars to access the Bigfoot Owners Club International forum. Not real active, but a good source for info/opinions. Tony

Bigfoot's are heavy and wide just make sure your tow vehicle can handle the trailer. Escape will have a 21ft this fall for sale.

Does anyone have any idea what the 17ft model goes for? I am looking at the Escape but really like the roominess & finishes of the Bigfoot.

I heard the 21ft Escape will be $1500.00 more than a 19ft Escape. Is the new Bigfoot a front bed or rear bed trailer? Front bed units years 2005 and newer were not heavy enough on the front hitch. Bigfoot offered a 500# weight for the front hitch. Smaller tow vehicles rear wheels could raise off the pavement. No problem with a full size truck.
