Bigfoot closes

Looks like they may be the latest causality. They laid off all employees today.

More and more layoffs and closings everywhere. Most of the companies that I deal with are slowing down. Doom and gloom seems to be on the horizon.

Employees loosing jobs is always very sad and long time success companies closing their doors isn't good for our field of interest either. It's a lot easier to close down and walk away than to EVER get a new viable company going again.

So true. Chinook tried it 3 times - and failed again.

They have been sold (twice) but this time it looks like they will re-open with new owners in the same plant. I doubt existing warranties will be honored.

Their website http://www.bigfootrv.com/ is on-line and shows 2010 dates, so it's current.

One of my pals that goes under the handle " old and tired " ordered a window and the necessary window trim from them about a month ago.

This thread is from 2008, when the topic was most likely current.

I've closed this thread.
