1988 Bigfoot DLX

After much agonizing, I am selling my 1988 17 ft Bigfoot DLX. I am the second owner; my parents were the first.

It is functional and camping ready, but certainly not pristine at almost 32 years old. Many things are original, and some things need attention or replacement. I am disclosing the problems that I am aware of that are not obvious in the pictures see Needs Attention below . The main issue is water damage around windows and the storage cubby under one of the benches in the dining area.

The Bigfoot is licensed in Oregon, but the tag expired in 2016. For 33 dollars, proof of insurance, and some other requirements, you can purchase a Recreational Vehicle Trip Permit from the Department of Motor Vehicles that is valid for 10 days, allowing you to tow it home legally.

The Bigfoot is being sold As Is. It is easy to view; ; but there was no listing for a coast location. cash only, no trades.


  • It's a Bigfoot!
  • Clear title in hand.
  • All original manualsincluded.
  • The 4 burner stove andoven are fully functional.

  • Optional 28 gallon freshwater tank instead of standard 23 gallon.

  • Main roof vent hasshroud to keep out rain when open; new vent lid in 2019.

Well Bob - you are closer than I am. Google Maps says 40 hours of driving
Yes- she is asking 4K - indicating there is water damage to manage. If I took a week off now my boss would fire me... so tempting though. My husband has a physical disability and that type of wet bath would work well for us.

I think his price is reasonable considering the work that needs to be done.
