The front box which is offered as an option is made by Escape, and only sold by them.

I had one on my 19' and it is the thing I will miss the most when we pick up our 5.0.

Nearly impossible to get. I inquired with Escape. The shipping is prohibitive and they were not willing to put in on with a load of trailers coming to my area (even though they had done it previously for at least one other customer from what I saw on the forum). Can't blame them. Worked out for us though because we ended up doing a rear mounted Stowaway box and repurposed the space on the tongue for a condensing unit as part of a custom mini-split AC system install that I did.

Just take a holiday to the Pacific Northwest and pop into ETI to have them retrofit a storage box onto your 19' Escape. However, you will have to be careful or you may find yourself ordering a new 21' or 5.0TA while you are there.

Yes, people constantly have this problem. Can't help themselves!

Yes, we agree. We were at ETI this morning working through the Build Sheet for our 17B being delivered at the end of January, and are already looking at the 19!!

I did a trip in 2013 which ended at the factory and had the front box retrofitted. Took a day and cost $850 then. I've been so happy ever since that I did it.

I'd order the 19' myself, but I would also have to buy a more robust tow vehicle. So, I'm just going to be content with what I have.

Yup, happened to us, we weren't even going to look in the demo 19, after all we knew exactly what we wanted.

I think you could write a book on the number of owners who "thought" they were buying a 17, and switched to the 19 -- us included.

We would like to, but can't afford a new towing vehicle as well.

It's all part of the slippery slope.

Buy a small trailer to fit your current vehicle.

A couple years later you buy a bigger vehicle, cause that old one really wasn't ideal for the job.

A couple more and you buy a bigger trailer...

Been there.

I also towed a 17 with a RAV4. I made the mistake of buying a "more robust" tow vehicle - a 21 is now on order!

This is a common situation for folks looking for a fibreglass trailer, often looking to fit a trailer to an existing tow vehicle, only to find out that the trailer will outlast a few tow vehicles if it is kept.

Would it maybe be feasible to sell your existing tow, and buy a capable used one to last you for a few years?

The route you are going though will still work, in that the 17 will hold value quite well, and there is a very good market for used ones. Once you have saved up a few more pennies (I guess that would be nickels seeing you are in Canada) and your existing tow wears out, you could make the move then. Who knows, you may then decide that something other than the 18 would suit you better.

I saw where you were moving up, but didn't realize it was to a 21. Keep that front storage box full of junk!
