Morning folks,

Just saw the morning news on TV today and noticed that a leak by a company employee says that our premiere RV manufacturer in this province of Class C motorhomes , truck campers and trailers is calling it quits after 30 years of building first rate RV's.

Big Foot Industries of Spallumcheen, British Columbia, Canada (near Armstrong, BC) is calling it quits, citing the economy and financial crisis of this industry.

Big Foot, as some of you are aware, built incredible two piece fiberglass Class C's, trailers and truck campers. They were always priced on the high side for me, but most owners would tell you that they were a good investment and re-sales always held their depreciation well.

Hopefully this blood-letting will end soon, but I rather doubt it.

Big Foot employed 300 people prior to making this announcement.
