robn, I have a 2005 Bigfoot 25RQ. I sold
an older Airstream to get this unit, so I am familiar with both of these manufacturers. Like you, I wanted to have my rig at home and 25' was the max I could do next to my house. We originally tried to find a 25' used Airstream, but they are very hard to come by and super expensive. A stripped down new one was $45k and the local dealer is my golf partner.
Using a Chevy Silverado 2500 D/A and after towing the BF for a couple of years, back and forth to snowbird country, I am very impressed in the quality of this rig. For what it's worth, we also owned and towed a Scamp
16' for five years with a Honda Pilot and also liked that manufacturer. Just wanted a queen bed that you could walk around and lots of windows
, which the BF has. That being said, it would not be fair to compare the BF and Scamp
, because the applications are so different.
Our center bath is small, but no smaller than our Airstream 34'. It's all about trade offs in this game. Again, I am "over the top" happy in being a Bigfoot owner. Good luck in your search.
