Bigfoot RV - Truck Campers & Travel Trailers - Recreational Vehicle Manufacturer doesn't build motorhomes, but truck campers and trailers only. What you saw is just named "Bigfoot" and has no relationship to FGRV maker.

We'll "sighting" you tomorrow then and you can do us. Are you coming for the music festival?

Yes. We are going to try boondocking in the parking lot this year to save the drive back across the bridge.

Well they are using the name and Bigfoot creature logo on it. A google search turned up a few used Bigfoot motorhomes for sale. They were 2003 and 2004 units and also had the logo. Copyright infringement maybe, or paid for the logo rights ??

Edit; tomorrow I'll compare the image on the trailer and motorhome to see if they are exactly the same, but certainly looked it. Too dark to see now.

Here's the Bigfoot Class C I sighted a few posts back. Made in Canada in the late 90's into the early 2000's. Well insulated and double pane windows. Talked to the owner who recently bought it in Texas, think he said it is a '93, maybe '98. He has a youtube video of the inside, under "camper van Kevin.

We ran off the Class C Bigfoot for not being a true molded fiberglass camper and now have a Burro 13 next to us. Two Casita 17's just came in too. So counting us and the Bigfoot trailer, that's 5 fiberglass campers in this campground. Also an Escape 5.0 is in the parking lot at the water park. An official rally now.

Have a Scamp 16 from Michigan owned by Bruce and Carolyn Miller. Bruce is BatDude on this site and he mounted a Bat monitoring device last night and detected two brown bats feeding in the vicinity of a park light.

Bruce, an expert on bats, and his wife Carolyn, an expert on large cats, are extremely interesting.

Saw a Scamp 13' pulled by a candy apple red SUV (with a tan kayak or canoe on top) headed north on Hwy 411 near Hwy 136 in Northwest Georgia. They looked like they might be headed to Fort Mountain or Tennessee.

Funny how I never noticed fiberglass trailers until I became interested in them. On the way to Florida from Ohio on I-95 I saw 3 Scamps (I think 2-13's and one 16') and then in Naples we saw what looked to be a really nice Burro. I never once noticed the tv's. But I did get a tad excited each time, only to glance over at my wife and see an expression like she had just seen a bear ride by on a moped, as she is looking at me. And another thing I noticed way, WAY too, much was people texting while driving. Cars are very close, usually moving at 80-85 mph and they feel safe doing that?? It exceeds my comprehension.

Pulled in to Cedar Breaks cg at Lake Georgetown TX; our reserved site was across the road from a Scamp 19 deluxe! Turns out she's a member here, so it was nice to make the connection; she said we'd just missed a Lite House that had been a few sites away for a few days. Next to us were camped our friends in their Casita. It was like a mini-FGRV rally.

There was also a Meer Kat, which was very small and very cute - but those are aluminum sided with FG top, so aren't represented in the FGRV stable.

We have Theresa and Dennis Palmer (Theresa P) from New Brunswick in their Trillium this week at the Escapee park in Wauchula, FL. Charming folks and the park's first Trillium. A resident owns a Casita 16 and we have our Scamp 16. Two other Scamps have visited the park this year.

The area is crawling with Fiberglass trailers with the Scamp Camp nearby.

Saw an EggCamper pulled by a grey pickup at Petrified Forest Nat'l Park this afternoon. Great weather to be "egging" in Northern Arizona- it was in the 70's today! Big change from just a few weeks ago.

At a Corps of Engineers campground in Florida today, two Scamp 13's and a Eriba Pan (I know, it's not fiberglass, but interesting just the same). At another COE campground yesterday, a Casita 17.

You probably spotted us. We were at the Petrified Forest Park on the 13th. Our tow vehicle is a black Dodge RAM with a fiberglass ARE bed cap - add a little dust and it looks gray. We are now hiding in the rapidly diminishing contingent of campers at Quartzsite.

Cool, Orlen! I was on the freeway headed home from a meeting in Window Rock and you passed across the overpass just as we went under. I'd never seen an EggCamper in person, so that's what caught my attention. Hope you're enjoying the early spring out here!
