Thule makes an off the shelf version of these boxes. Not sure you would want to put a generator in it, however.

Will a Honda 2000 fit in the front box on a 21?

It should as the width is a hair less than 12". I believe there is enough height (need 17").

The front box sides are just thin fiberglas, is the genie in a box? it may fit but the weight is such that stop and go may do some damage if it moves due to inertia. Probably 80 lbs for that one item plus lifting it in and out maybe awkward.

Thanks Jim.
Just checked and the Honda2000i is 45.6 lbs. If there is a solid plate or platform underneath, might be able to secure some rails to that and secure the generator then ? Security then becomes a question. I have a long way to go, but the generator transport was in the top 5 of my list of questions. Not sure if the 2000 will run the 11,0000btu Dometic as is, but hope to be able to figure that out.

Actually there is nothing inside, no platform, just storage space. You may ask Escape to install wooden floor in the middle, similar to one in the 19 box that support the batteries.

Fred, before you worry about how to carry it, make sure it will run your AC. We had a new Honda 2000 and just sold it because we were convinced it was not strong enough to run the AC, especially the start up. I had hear of putting a "Fast STart" on the AC would help, but all in all your asking your generator to do too much and it probably would not be good for theAC.

Thanks Nancy. Had heard the new easy start would do it, but will now look into it further.
Might give Dometic a call.

Jim,
Are the batteries on the 21 behind the box?
I really need to get out and see one. Now all I need is a free weekend....

The batteries in an Escape 21 are inside the trailer, under the dinette - either on the passenger side (with the standard dinette) or at the back (with the U-shaped dinette).

There's no room between the front box and the trailer body, for batteries or anything else. If the trailer is ordered without the front box, there is nothing in that space.
