After repeatedly caulking and sealing our framed, laminated, and screwed together project camper for the past four years, I can barely contain my enthusiasm for two-piece molded fiberglass campers. No frame to rot or sweat. No lamination to de-laminate. An approximately 5-to-1 reduction in external seams and the countless screws they require. Ladies and gentlemen, after everything we have seen, two-piece fiberglass construction is the best way to build a truck camper for long-term durability – period.
Bigfoot 25C10.4 Final Analysis
The 2018 Bigfoot 25C10.4 is an exemplary example of this superior construction approach, but that’s not the whole story. The 180-degree panoramic rear view, enormous dry bath, highly functional kitchen design, nearly ideal holding tank balance, and excellent battery, propane, and battery capacities add up to something much more. This is a very special non-slide truck camper.
That doesn’t mean the 2018 Bigfoot 25C10.4 is perfect. During the course of the review I found a number of design details that are less than optimal; Center of Gravity stickers that need to be moved, entry way light switches that need labeling, dinette cushions that don’t quite make into a bed, an awkwardly placed television antenna crank, and an inconvenient heat duct location in the cabover.
There’s also a shortage of 12-volt and USB outlets in the kitchen, dinette, and cabover. To be fair, the JVC stereo in the dinette does feature a 12-volt outlet, but I would prefer to see a dedicated 12-volt and USB outlet in that area; preferably with more than one USB connection. While we’re at it, the cabover needs an additional 110-volt outlet on the driver’s side for a CPAP machine.
Quibbles aside, the quality and quality control on display throughout this camper are beyond reproach. Everywhere we looked we found evidence of a manufacturer and team who cares about the quality of the materials, appliances, construction, fit and finish. With a base MSRP of $43,260, the 2018 Bigfoot 25C10.4 is a premium-priced non-slide truck camper, but you can literally see the quality at every turn. Put bluntly, this is one of the best built RVs on the planet. Well done, Bigfoot.
