The storage box is our most used and favorite feature on the trailer. We would not be without it. They're made by Escape so you can take the trailer to them to have a box installed. I'm not aware of anyone having one shipped to them (the shipping charge because of dimensional weight would be quite high) but you can always ask.

As for "Carmicahel", if you mean Carmichael Saskatechewan, you're some distance, but it might be worth the trip. Escape can also check out and repair other minor problems while you're there, and you get to see beautiful BC.

Might call Escape first and see if the current production box will fit your trailer without modifications. The tanks might have to be relocated a bit forward. The should be able to tell you if you give them your VIN.


I absolutely love our "junk box" - all the bulky wet messy stuff goes into it (it has drain holes in the bottom.)We also store our power cord in it.

I hemmed and hawed about the storage box, and the price. I've had my 17A a month and I am sure glad I listened to the chorus of folks who love it. I have electrical cord, hoses, patio mat and beach mat, solar shower, tablecloth, chocks and levelers. It also keeps my side hatches fairly clean b/c as Tractors1 said, messy stuff goes there. I'm trying to keep it pretty light, so chairs are in a side hatch.

indeed, my E21's utility box behind the propane carries my leveling blocks, wheel chocks, hammer, spikes, hoses (except stinky), power cords, crank for the levelers, and so forth.

Highly recommend a storage box of some sort.

The last I conversed with Reace about the factory box the shipping was prohibitive because of the size and crating required. Although he did it for one forum member many years ago he also declined sending it to my area (NJ) with a load of trailers. It is still worth a conversation.

As was already pointed out you may need other modifications on the tongue to accommodate the box.

It all worked out because my mini-split condenser resides where the box would mount and we did a Stowaway box on the rear.
