We owned a Uhaul
VT before getting the Bigfoot Silver Cloud
. The Uhaul
had proprietary parts, and as the only family that experienced a Uhaul
hub blowout, we were very lucky to fall
onto an old Uhaul dealer who happened to have 2 hubs in his stock in the middle of nowhere Wyoming and Montana. We never did find tail light
covers during the time we owned the VT and had to jerry rig proprietary door hinges. We were able to find new rims, but they were not matching to the camper. The challenge was both challenging and frustrating.
Next trailer: Bigfoot Silver Cloud
and they only made 12. After getting it, we needed to replace the fridge
, the tires
, the AC, the door, and some light
covers. All were standard RV parts and easily found. Yes, some parts will be tough to replace, i.e. bedroom blinds and repair of sagging couch, but that is doable, not like the years of looking into taillight covers for the Uhaul.
