My dad has a bigfoot gas powered and takes it skiing every weekend. He hasn't froze up yet and hasn't had any problems with every weekend usage during the winter. Fit and finish have held up great and it still looks like new. he's very happy he paid the extra money for the bigfoot (compared to others you can get). He has an enclosed trailer throws on when he rides and doesn't sacrifice living space with a garage.

I found a motor home to be a PITA because I often find I need to drive somewhere after getting to a race site. I opted to go with a Carson toy hauler so I could disconnect and use the truck to drive around. Looking back I wish I had bought a simple travel trailer without the toy hauler option. I can fit all the bikes in the bed of a truck and have even more comfortable living space in the trailer.

Well, I took all of your comments, advice, suggestions and concerns, and disregarded everything. I'll be picking this bad boy up next week, if all goes as planned. Krystal on a F-550 chassis. It's nicer than our house. No, seriously, it's nicer than our house (cherry cabinets, granite counters, etc.).

Yea, probably getting divorced over this purchase, so I may need someone with whom to cuddle.

Well, it's comfy and way more high-brow than we deserve.

I see you said feet, not shoes. You know how eastern Oregonians hate shoes.
