Shower Package $1000 ( the 17B came standard with a toilet only)
Tinted windows $200
Additional window at front dinette $150 ( in those days there was only one window at the front).
Fantastic Fan $300
Front rock guards $75
Front stabilizer jacks $100 (only the back were standard)
Upgraded hot water tank (DSI) $175
Fiesta awning $500
Locking water hatch $91
As you can see the trailer was a lot cheaper in those days but many of the standard features of today's trailer were options then making today's trailer a great deal.
The bathroom shower was smaller than today's 17B, it didn't have a sink and the taps were basically on the floor. The black tank was only 8 gallons and the grey tank 14 gallons.
The wait for a new trailer was a wee bit shorter than today. The trailer was ordered on Aug 23rd 2005 and picked up 2 weeks later on Sept 7th 2005
