This 1986 Bigfoot FT-20 DLX 5th wheel is a classic 20 foot long vintage trailer with updated modern features in very good road-ready condition. It’s all molded fiberglass and streamlined construction design, coupled with twin axels, tows like a dream regardless of weather conditions or traveling situations. With its unique interior layout and classy exterior features, this trailer draws attention wherever it goes.
Standard towing and owner upgraded features; tandem axels each rated at 3600 pounds; dry weight at approximately 3500 pounds; breakaway switch; standard 7 pin round electrical connector; pin weight at approximately 750 pounds; a rear bumper mounted spare tire; the axels have been professionally flipped over raising the trailer frame 6 inches / creating extra ground and truck bed rail clearance; 14 inches have been added to the pin hitch frame length / allowing for extra swing room between the trailer and your truck; super bright LED signal and clearance lights. We tow with a 2014 Dodge RAM 1500 Outdoorsman 5.7 gasser with the 8 speed transmission and integrated tow controller, which barely works the power-train.
Standard Bigfoot FT-20 features; the single most striking feature is the “outside-in view” with three large windows that surround the dining area and provide wonderful views of the outdoors. The unique dining area features twin captain’s chairs and an opposing side bench couch, providing seating for four. Storage is abundant throughout: cabinets over the dinette and throughout the kitchen area, with two under sink drawers, a full hanging closet, and top and bottom cabinets in the sleeping area. The bathroom is all molded fiberglass with a corner shower and wrap-around curtain, which allows the sink and toilet area to stay dry. The exterior includes two standard propane tanks with switch-over regulators. Extensive outdoor storage, with 7 independent compartments, provides ample external storage capacity.
All major appliances are original and in working condition; the three-way Dometic refrigerator keeps food cold in any condition; the Wedgewood 4 burner stove / oven provides plenty of cooking space; the Atwood propane hot water heater quickly recovers; the Hydro-Flame propane furnace in combination with the Big Foot’s enclosed and insulated underbelly keeps you and your on-board tanks warm.
