Bigfoot is a mighty fine camper manufacturer, and about the only game in town for winter use units. For any of your future considerations, we love our hardside pop-up. Ours is a knock-off Rockwood from the Forest River family of brands, but the knocked-off unit is the A-Liner. I understand the A-Liners have powdercoated steel frames. Our Rockwood frame is simple painted steel and as such it will never see salted roads.
The hardside A-frame popups go from low-wind resistance towed mode to tall, roomy hardside units in literally one minute. Ours has a combination A/C and heat pump for hot nights and cool nights when hookups are available, and a propane furnace for boondocking on colder nights.
Thanks for the info! I'm always interested in the kinds of rigs folks go a-wandering in! Mostly the FWC/ATC truck campers here on WTW, but there are a few of we trailer-draggers lurking about. We have very good friends in West Seattle and they're pondering a lightweight trailer acquisition, focused mostly on R-Pods but still considering other brands/configurations.
