Also, unless ETI did the installation of tie downs beforehand, it almost goes without saying that you would not want to get the under trailer insulation.

In the 19" Escape there are a couple of bolts accessible under the bed, but trying to rig tie downs seems implausible under there. Otherwise the rest are inaccessible. Perhaps some sort of wooden storage box in the truck bed maybe better.

Thank you for chiming in folks. I had hopes that the ETI propensity to customize some things would shine through,
and that this innovation would be welcomed as a good addition
to the trailer. It could be used for securing many things
during a portage not just oxygen supplies.

It might still be. The body bolts are hidden in cabinets intentionally, but exposed locations are available, especially if using crossmembers (rather than the main frame rails, which may be far enough apart that they're entirely under cabinets other than in the doorway).

One challenge is that recessed tie-downs would usually need more thickness - usually twice as much - than is available in the Escape floor. In a quick search I find one which is shallower, but it isn't the nicest thing to have exposed in the trailer interior: Recessed Pan D-Ring M-15P. Although "light duty", it looks like it would be more than strong enough for the intended purpose. Something like this might be okay if covered by a removable mat while not in motion.

although not real aesthetic, that would fit into the plywood yes.
If you were going to mount to a frame or cross member, you could perhaps go thicker. And if It were hard against the outside
corners of the floor, out of the walk way. IMO you seldom
place your feet that close to the wall and would tend to walk
down the middle of the path.
