Bigfoot "Silver Cloud"

Yes, I have no doubt the Oliver is much more nicely finished that the EggCamper or any of the other double-wall trailers, consistent with its price and four-season mission. But all use a similar build method with large trailer-size inner molds and a shiny gelcoat interior on exposed surfaces.

You can see the outer shell (or insulation) inside the cabinets of a U-Haul and a Burro, too. Neither was intended as a four-season camper. Happier Camper is a bit different because the inner molds do not include integrated cabinets. For that they have their proprietary Adaptiv modules.

Goodness, they dropped the price, too!
Yes they did, I wonder why. Maybe it needs a lot of work as it is 33 years old. I have went to look at RV,S, Automobiles and when you get there the pictures don't tell the real story. Someone will buy it at the right price.

I’d tend to be wary. The photo of the front hitch area indicates general neglect. The advertised renovations might well be repairs for water damage. The interior walls, floor and ceiling appear to have been replaced and probably represent a significant investment to the seller, however some of the interior cabinetry that helped set the Silvercloud apart has not been restored. As Cindy previously mentioned a substantial oak dining table has been removed and I note that the upper cabinetry in the living area is missing doors, while the oak side table has been substituted with lesser materials. Even so, If the moisture problem has been addressed and the frame and the subfloor are sound it could still be a fine trailer. It would be nice to know that there is another Silvercloud on the road.

I actually seen this trailer for sale about a year and a half ago. It was in pretty bad shape. I think they have been restoring it for a while now. I went to see it in its present condition. and yes there are things missing with this trailer not in bad shape for 33 year old trailer but it still needs work. But it is one of 12 made and rare yes. Some one will buy it and make her perfect. I see you own or owned a Silver Cloud was yours the one that was for sale in the interior years ago and worked on at Gilmay rv in Vernon.

As long as the frame and subflooring was in good shape and IF I had a tow vehicle for it, I'd still buy it! A couple of missing upper cabinet doors are inconsequential and I wouldn't want the living room table anyway.

I'm a new member today. I also have the exact same trailer 28' Bigfoot Silver Cloud 1987 with twin beds and bathtub. Unfortunately no manual. Did you get one with yours?

Deb,

Yes, we have the manual. Just a caution, it is pretty generic. I thought I scanned it, but my computer died during a thunderstorm last week. I may have uploaded it somewhere. I can look around. I suspect it might be in the files on one or both of the Bigfoot Facebook pages, maybe even here.


I will let you know if I find it.

Yep, I found it. I uploaded it to the 2 Bigfoot Facebook groups you may wish to join: https://www.facebook.com/groups/108876309153853/files

and

https://www.facebook.com/groups/91079926641

It is a generic Customer Manual for '80s Bigfoot campers. Look for it in the files and post pix of your camper. Not much in there about the Silver Cloud, but it came with our Silver Cloud.

Congrats! We love ours!

That’s three road-worthy and one project Silvercloud in this thread. I know of another in central B.C. I wonder where the others are?

One showed up in California a while back. He was on Facebook for a bit asking questions, showed off his new awning, and then disappeared.

And doesn't Grant have one? I have heard this.

So perhaps we have four known Silverclouds. A new awning would be nice. The mechanism on ours is unreliable so we don’t use it and I’ve never seriously looked into replacing it.

Well I guess you never get any wind. Where I am in Southcoast Mass I can never leave the awning out because of the sea breeze/gale that we get most everyday.

Actually, Thomas, what I meant was, when we use the awning, we always try to put up the screen house. If the wind threatens, we take the screen house and awning down.

Lance, sorry for being so late to this thread! You mentioned you needed new axles on your Silver Cloud. What were the symptoms of the bad axles and what type of axles are they? Because of the foam insulation covering, I can’t really tell…torsion? Did the new axles raise the trailer up a bit, too? Final question…you mention in another thread that the Prest-O-Fit Blueline (?) sewer hose fits in the Silver Cloud holder. What length hose…10’?
