"Easier to pull" is pretty subjective, and depends on MANY factors. I owned Bob B's 17 before he bought it from me. I also have a 25RQ. One of my close friends has a 19'. The frontal area of the Bigfoot is what makes them a little more difficult to tow than other designs, and I found that there's not a whole lot of difference between pulling the 17 and 25' trailers, even though there's about 2,000 lbs difference in weight
. My friend pulls his 19' tandem axle
with a Jeep Liberty and an e-qual-i-zer sway control WDH and reports that the Liberty is more stable when hitched than it is by itself.
I pulled both my 17CB and 25RQ with a Toyota Tundra 4WD with a 3.4l V6. I now pull the 25RQ with a 5.7L Nissan Titan 4WD.
There's a lot of opinions out there... I'd just suggest buying the Bigfoot with a floorplan you find suits your needs... and then get something competent to tow it.
