sometime around 1989 there was a change in production and all BF17 left the factory built and equipped the same way (with that 2 piece all FG wet bath and no options) and offered in two models the G and the CB....so sorry you didn't "score"
....you just bought a trailer built after that production change
a easy "identifier" is the front rock guard....if the supports for it are outside the guard it's a "pre-change" model....if the supports are inside the rockguard (thicker) it's an "after change" model.....all built the same way from about 1989 to about 2004...
the two molds that make up the trailer body were unchanged from 1980 to 2004
in 2005 the "17.5" model...(2500 series) was introduced (different molds, double pane windows
, thicker insulation, weighs about 800lbs more)
