SOLD - 1981 Bigfoot 17B Deluxe - $18,000 - Tucson, AZ

We hate to see her go, but the time has come for us to sell our updated 1981 Bigfoot 17B Deluxe (gaucho model). Off-grid ready with 200 watts of solar installed on the roof and a 1000w Renogy inverter, we made a ton of upgrades and spent two years traveling all over the west in our beloved Bigfoot. Lots of original features (including an oven that works great and a 4-burner stove!) and character with modern touches. Four-season, lightweight, and easy to pull with TONS of awesome windows and an open floorplan. This is a one-of-a-kind camper that we hope will bring its next owners as much joy,  memories, and adventures as it did us. 

I’ve listed the upgrades we made and work we’ve done below, and am happy to answer any questions or send additional pictures:
