Hi everyone! I am looking at purchasing a one owner 06 Bigfoot 15c9.3 and wondering if anyone has experience with these campers.

I noticed on the roof the fiberglass is separated from whatever it is layed over in a couple spots and also wondering if this is cause for concern.

Sounds like a legit concern since it's not supposed to be like that. Couple silver dollar size spots or big enough to use feet and inches to measure?

I wouldn't buy it. 16 years old and the separation won't be easy to fix.

Bigfoot campers are a fiberglass shell laid up in a mold like a boat hull. Everything else including insulation is glued or built inside that shell. If that shell has a hole in it then how did it get there, and why?...cracked? Split? Damaged ?....I would be very wary of it myself.

@OP... you use the word "separated." Generally that is not a good thing.

Pictures help a lot in assisting us understand your dilemma. This site is not user-friendly for posting images... use THIS SITE for dropping images.

Welcome aboard and let's see what you're up against.
