    Camper tag says 1755 dry. I'd imagine I have about 400 pounds extra added to that. As far as tongue weight I'd guess 300? I would love to weigh it but don't have a scale like that. The trailer weight is probably right around 5k (2500 empty, it's a pig).

    I'm going to scale the whole rig one of these days and I will be sure to let you know.

    As far as modifications, I added Firestone Ride-rite airbags, the TRD sway bar, and E rated tires. The truck handles it like a champ with about 80 PSI in the bags (out of 100).

    Yes it has body roll, no it doesn't stop fast (faster with the trailer actually thanks to the trailer brakes), and no it is not rated for it.
    The whole human race is de evolving; it is due to birth control, smart people use birth control, and stupid people keep pooping out more stupid babies.

    Slept through sustained 80mph windstorm last night. Confirmed that I'm on the right track with the Bigfoot.

    Given the sparse details of the listing I'll bet it's a hoax.
    This category seems to be rife with that type of activity, we see a lot of that with Tiger listings.

    Those photos look like promotional material. Sooo clean. The lack of a front license plate is also a little odd.

    The locust tree in that pic looks out of place in Skagit county.

    Some engineered is paid big coin to design that bumper to only get butchered by some punk in a prison stamping cheap metal. I have never put a front plate on a vehicle I purchased new so I totally missed that detail.

    No problem, this one looks legit.

    https://reno.craigslist.org/rvs/6021863765.html



    Serro Scotty Regalia on a Dodge 3500 4x4 chassis with the most reliable and easy to work on 5.9 12v cummins diesel engine with only 7X,XXX miles. This is the perfect four season vacation getaway and Baja adventure package. I put this rig together to make the Pan American highway trip and local trips to the coast and desert, but plans have changed and would like to pass this on to someone who will appreciate and use them for their intended purpose. I'm not in a hurry to sell and I'm firm on the prices, especially the motorhome. The Regalia is the luxury model from Serro Scotty and the closest thing that I've found is an Earthroamer and they cost around $300K for a used one. The Scotty is a 1997 coach on a 1996 3500 Ram chassis and measures 25' long. Just put over $10k into the front end, new exhaust brake, airbags, new furnace, new generator and $5k for a rebuilt tranny and $1300 for new tires. The rig has almost $20k in upgrades through the years including engine monitoring system, water and air in the fuel purging system, solar panel for off the grid use and many more things that make this rig very well equipped.

    I have a 2005 Subaru Baja Turbo manual that tows beautifully behind the coach. It has 15X,XXX miles. New clutch, rebuilt heads, timing, brakes, snow tires....

    Looking to get $35000 for the Scotty and $9000 for the Baja separately or $42000 together.

    Priorities! shop/garage vs house.

    Sustained 80mph winds in the Bigfoot is VERY impressive! You are ready for a trip on the high seas.

    Sure, but why would it be preferable to deal with that hassle rather than represent the true condition of the vehicle from the outset?

    est. 500 miles with it, mostly highway. Seems to have eliminated the herky jerky buffeting that sometimes results from the wind between the cab and the cabover. Dunno whether it helps MPG because it's a new truck without a history of MPG tracking, but I can't imagine it hurts.

    Kailua_Boys, 8020 stuff is awesome, but it helps to source as much as possible from ebay. It gets $$$$ pretty quickly. You can find used extrusions pretty cheap. The fasteners and connection plates start to add up though.
