Bigfoot 21fb good deal

I have come across what I believe to be a pretty good deal on a Rv for my upcoming winter road trip and just want to get some opinions on it. It's a 2006 bigfoot 21fb has generator and a/c. 2nd owner bought in 2007 and only used a few times with only 10 hours on the generator. It seems in really good shape and he is asking 5300. Is that a good deal and what should I be looking for issues wise. I am pretty unfamiliar with fiberglass trailers but I really like the idea of it vs a normal one.

I would check it out very carefully. If it is in good condition, it is worth 3 or 4 times that amount. Sounds too good to be true.

So its pretty much a no brainer? I saw a couple classifieds that had them in the 17 to 20k range, It does seem to good to be true but I dont see how I can go wrong unless something is seriously wrong with it

Bigfoot 21fb good deal

“Tread carefully” means don’t part with a dime until you’ve done an in-person inspection that includes verifying a valid title in the seller’s name that matches the VIN on the trailer. For long distance purchases, arrange a pre-purchase inspection at a local RV shop.

If it’s a scam you’ll get all manner of explanations and excuses. Then you run.

If you’re tech-savvy, you can save yourself the trouble (and exposure of personal contact information) by doing an image search on photos from the ad. Scams are usually posted in different places with different prices and variations of the text using images lifted from legitimate ads.

It is a hour away from where I live, doesnt look at all like a scam add, I can usually spot them from a mile away. I am a mechanic and pretty handy so I feel pretty good looking at it myself as long as there is no common issues or things to look for.

If its legit, then it should have sold in about 30 minutes, 1 hour max, unless it is a private, unadvertised item.

Too good to be true = too good to be true. Inspect carefully and make sure title is legit. Something is off on this one.

1 hour away, you should be driving right now. If its legit, someone will grab it fast.

Sounds like a scam. Also why are you talking to us? You should be buying it, well if it wasn't a scam. But it is.

I have to agree. If this trailer were within an hour of me, I'd have been looking at it and investigating its legitimacy within an hour of knowing about it.

People expecting to get something for nothing tend to get the opposite.

Bet the seller has a story too. Someone died, they have to get rid of it to close an estate, grandpa gave it to them, etc. And then Western Union them a deposit and they will "hold it" for you. When you arrive, there is no trailer and your money is gone too.

But with a 10% chance it is real, I'd be driving. If they tell you they can't meet for a week, but ask for a deposit, alarm bells should be ringing.

Any legit seller in two minutes can find the fiberglass RV for sale site along with sold trailers and price accordingly.

Congrats to the new owner. I also was one who found this trailer online and did a lot of digging about the seller and his family. I was convinced it wasn't a scam based on what I had learned online. (It was helpful about what you can find online about a family in Semour Wi to help dispell the it had to be a scam thinking.) I wasn't certain it wasn't a scam until your post.

Logon (seller) had told me he couldn't show me the trailer till Tuesday (yesterday). He never called me back and on Monday the trailer ad and my chat notes with Logan all disappeared! Now I know why- enjoy the journey.

Bigfoot 21fb good deal

It’s really unusual for a 2006 to already be at the “project” stage. You’ll have to forgive our skepticism...

In fact, you’d be excused for gloating a little!

Congratulations, and best wishes whipping your find into shape!

Re: project skepticism

Project consist of resealing of roof, reconditioning of water heater, plumbing leaks, fiberglass bellypan repair, water damage repair, trailer tongue repair, and nonstarting generator repair. So yes, this would be considered a project. But doable. Very lucky indeed. Thanks for congrats!

Chuck,
Bigfoot sales are extremely rare in a Wisconsin. You are very lucky to find one.
I bought a 2008 25B21RB as second owner, but found it in Las Vegas in 2014.
I’m in Eau Claire. Where are you?
I have corrected many problems, large and small - You are very welcome to contact me or visit.
