Hello! 1986 Bigfoot Fifth Wheel

Hi Everyone,

Glad to join what looks like an inclusive and friendly community. My wife and I have recently purchased a 1986 Bigfoot Fifth Wheel. It is in need of some TLC. The roof sags and some of the panelling has come loose to mention some jobs we're planning to tackle. We are brand new to trailer ownership (thought I'd always be a tenter) and even to owning a truck, so I'll be checking here often for some expertise.

If you have any thread suggestions that relate to roof, panel or small fibreglass patching please let me know!

Heres my 86 Big Foot 5th wheel rebuild

The saggy roof is pretty common, as well as the paneling delamination. Worthy of a rebuild though, I did mine years ago and have many miles on it now.
I'll try to answer any questions you may have along the way...

Another link

So I noticed when I go to my old album using the link I posted that the link within the album that takes you to the complete file of the rebuild no longer works, so here is a fresh link to that photo file...
Hope that one works....
