first post

Hi all, I just bought a 1989 17 foot bigfoot trailer. Pretty sure I will be asking a lot of dumb questions as my RV experience is pretty much 0.

1979 Beachcomber

Hi all, thanks for having this forum! I currently have a 1979 Beachcomber, gutted and sitting in my yard. This is my first trailer (and so excited it's vintage!), and I am looking forward to putting her back together. I have a campground in the forested part of my 4 acres, that friends have parked their trailers for the summer. We call this amazing place Gypsy Town.
As I get her closer to completion, I am sure I will be researching and reaching out. Thank everyone in advance for tips, tricks and ideas that will help.
Cheers, and happy canping!!!

First post from a wanna be newbe... I have never been rv camping before and suddenly have the urge to go!. I have recently bought a F150 ecoboost with airbags and a 5th wheel set of rails in it...Meant to be? Perhaps. I have lots of time off from my job,I work 28 days and get 28 days off. I live in St Augustine ,fl so plenty of places to go within a days drive. Thanx for having me..Jack

Welcome to New Members

Welcome, Jack! You’ve come to the right place for small, lightweight, all-molded fiberglass trailers and fifth wheels.

Since you mentioned the rails, we’ll start there. Scamp and Escape both make molded fiberglass fifth wheels (technically Scamp’s is a gooseneck, but their in-bed ball mount uses the same rails). There are also vintage Bigfoot fifth wheels to be found, along with a few other very rare vintage molded 5-ers.

They’re all smaller than the typical framed and laminated Elkhart fare and all are half ton towable.

Best wishes in your RV journey, wherever it leads!

Starting our journey!

Hi everyone. I've been referencing the forum for a while as my wife and I both love the idea of having a fiberglass RV for our long term trailering needs and wants.
We're in the process of finding the right one. Bed size is important! The bathroom is important! Weight is important! The ability to maintain for years to come is important! - LOL
Hoping to find a well maintained, older Bigfoot 21FB that we can make our own soon!
If you have any tips/tricks or recommendations for us to ensure we get ourselves a nice trailer please feel free to PM me. Anything on the Bigfoots from the mid 90's to early 00's that I need to look out for?
