Who Makes Bigfoot Campers?

Who Makes Bigfoot Campers?

Bigfoot campers aren’t new on the RV scene, but they have gone through many changes that have molded who they are today. Let’s find out who manufactures them and learn a bit about what makes a Bigfoot camper unique. 

Who Makes Bigfoot Campers? 

Bigfoot campers are manufactured by Bigfoot RV, which was founded in 1978 by Clyde Burgess, Erwin Kreig, and Terry Mayall. Terry was seeking a way to have his own company. Meanwhile, Erwin owned Boler, a small trailer company. So the three pooled their skills and visions to create Bigfoot.

Bigfoot RV temporarily shut down in 2008 due to finances. One year later, the company assets were reacquired by a previous Operations Manager named Grant Bilodeau. Bilodeau relaunched the company in 2010, making campers that continue to delight RVers throughout North America.

About Bigfoot Campers

Bigfoot campers are known and recognized for their quality, thoughtful design, and attention to detail. They make both truck campers and travel trailers.

Customers can order Bigfoot campers through factory outlets located in Canada and the United States. And because they are a high-quality RV, you can often find used Bigfoots in great condition through sites like RV Trader or Facebook Marketplace.

Where Are Bigfoot Campers Made? 

Bigfoot RV operates a facility in Armstrong, BC, Canada. Bigfoot builds its campers in an 85,000 square-foot multi-building complex.

Is My Bigfoot Camper Four-Season? 

You’ll be camping in comfort regardless of the season when you’re in a Bigfoot camper. The heated underbelly will help keep your pipes from freezing, even in frigid temperatures. In addition, the solid walls and thermal windows add to your comfort year-round. Many Bigfoot campers have dual pane windows.

Are Bigfoot Camper Trailers Fiberglass?

Yes! The original creators of Bigfoot campers, Terry, Clyde, and Erwin, had extensive experience in fiberglass. Before starting Bigfoot RV, they owned a fiberglass tub company.

Due to their experience, they knew that using fiberglass in an RV would create a high-quality product. Their goal was to create a camper with minimal seams and weak points. Not only are Bigfoot trailer fiberglass, but their truck campers are, too.

Bigfoot Camper Models

Bigfoot RV focuses on quality versus quantity when it comes to the models they offer. They also have a reputation as one of the best-made truck camper brands. Let’s take a look at the models Bigfoot has available. 

1500 Truck Camper

The 1500 series truck camper line features three models for both short and long bed trucks. The models include the 8.2, 9.5FS, and 9.5FR short box models and the 9.5FS and 9.5FR long box models. This model series is the lightest weight. Each unit features R6 1-inch high-density EPS insulation as well as upgraded features and options.

Features include thermal windows, a fan, and a porcelain toilet. You can upgrade your camper with additions like an air conditioner, rearview camera, or solar setup. 

2500 Truck Camper

Bigfoot camper 2500 series provides models for both long and short bed trucks. Choose among the 9.4 and 9.6 in both short and long box, and the 10.4 and 10.6E models. The 2500 series features R8 1.5-inch high-density EPS insulation and a 30,000 BTU furnace perfect for those chilly nights. 

Many great features come standard, such as electric jacks, rear door awnings, microwaves, and living room skylights. Some great upgraded options available include a rear backup camera, exterior speakers, and a solar setup.

2500 Travel Trailer

Bigfoot offers more than truck campers. The company also offers a travel trailer line perfect for those who want a towable option. Each Bigfoot travel trailer features a lightweight two-piece fiberglass exterior and high-density insulation. In addition, thermal pane windows make for a great all-season unit. 

Enjoy standard features such as porcelain toilets, spring-filled mattresses, day and nightshades, skylights, and deluxe fabrics. There are also Fantastic Fans, dual propane tanks with auto changeover, a black tank rinse, and enclosed heated water tanks. 

If the standard features aren’t enough for you, you can upgrade to solar energy, an air conditioner, and an awning, among other things.

Older Bigfoot Camper Models

Bigfoot RV stopped making some camper models in 2008 when it closed that haven’t been resurrected. But there are still a few floating around that you might be lucky enough to spot at a campsite. Here are a few options to snag an older model. 

Bigfoot Motorhomes

While Bigfoot has said they’ll never bring back their motorhome, it was available for a while. These motorhomes were wide-bodied and spacious. They ranged in length from 24.8 feet to 29.8 feet. 

These motorhomes boasted the patented Fibercore Wall System. This system, unique to Bigfoot motorhomes, provided superior insulation.

3000 Series Truck Campers

The 3000 series truck campers were the top-of-the-line in the Bigfoot truck camper lineup. These campers featured the same great durable construction as other Bigfoot units with the Fibercore Wall System, ensuring they were well-insulated. Additionally, there were three wide-body floor plans available.

Standard features included a slide-out dual battery compartment, high output 30,000 BTU furnace, and enclosed, insulated, and heated holding tanks.

2006 Bigfoot 2500 10.6 Winter camp in Alaska. No solar, no on board generator. We used to have a trailer, but got tired of limitations to where we could go. Now we go almost anywhere, and love it. Ironically, I also have a bigger kitchen than in my trailer.

That's awesome! We love that we can go just about anywhere in our Bigfoot, too.

Hi Tom and Caitlin, Thanks for showcasing two of our Bigfoot videos here. We really appreciate that and I'm sure we've gotten many views because of it. Hopefully someday in the near future we'll own another Bigfoot, we're looking at the 10.4 Truck Camper. Just wanted to stop in and say thanks! Carla and Todd (The Runaway Roses)

Hi, Having watched the Go North series many multiple times, I would like to add my heartfelt condolences for the loss of one of the series’ stars, Mocha. She will be missed! Her role in the series makes each episode so much more authentic and watchable, no matter how many times I queue it up.

So very glad to see you return to a truck camper! The Go North series is so epically well-done, inspirational and instructional that it’s the best news that you’re returning to that RV mode to add to the adventures. Best! Alan

We had a 1999 Bigfoot Class C. We had a custom boat made that fit inside. We found that after we put HWH jacks on it and other "stuff" we were 1800lbs over gross when fully loaded. The reason we moved up was that the dinette was hard on the back -= was vertical not sloped like Triple E's cushions. It was great for traveling but poor for sitting in the evenings. We asked them to make a bigger (chassis)model for us - NO. So we bought a 35Triple E with 2 slides - lots lf room. So then they came out with a bigger unit.
