Goodbye/Hello (2005 17B Changing Hands)

My husband and I have loved our 2005 17B for 3 years, and have loved everything about it and every trip with it, but found a really good deal on a Bigfoot 25B17.5G that we couldn't pass up. We went from 3 dogs to 5 dogs over the winter and the extra floor space and sleeping space of the Bigfoot makes a big difference!

Our Escape sold without ever being on the market; our friend who has a 16' Scamp borrowed the Escape for this past weekend's dog event were were both going to and decided she was taking it home!

I'll still be around but probably more so on the general fiberglass forums, and hopefully Tammy will be joining you all here soon

1: Our new Bigfoot
2: The Bigfoot and Escape camping together
3: Two of our dogs on the front bed of the Bigfoot with the Escape showing through the window
4: Two of her dogs (and one of ours) on the bed in the Escape. Our dogs were equal opportunity bed hogs since that used to be their trailer!

Welcome! You are in Silverton? We visit Silver Falls couple times each year. Any chance we will drive pass your Escape on the way there?

We live in the hills about halfway between Silverton and the park, but not visible from highway. We love taking the dogs to the park for hikes!

We've held a couple of NOGs at Silver Falls State Park. Next time we're there, I hope you'll join us... if we gave awards, you'd take the trophy for shortest distance driven
