Front storage on a Bigfoot trailer

At a CG near here, I recently saw what seemed to be a newer Bigfoot trailer (perhaps a 17') that had a front shroud/cover much larger than the typical sort that covers the propane tanks and battery. It was the full width of the trailer, came up to the underside of the seam between the top and bottom halves of the trailer, and seemed to have storage accessible from the top.

Does any know -

-- Whether or not this is a feature of newer models?
-- If so, can one be retrofitted to older models?

I wish I'd been able to take a photo but I wasn't.

The models with the front storage bins have longer frames, and existing trailers without one cannot be retrofit.

What Jim said. Might add the front storage units were on some years of the older models. My 08' 25B25FB has the unit.

Camping last week we meet a couple with a new Bigfoot 25', the owner ordered the Bigfoot with the longer frame, but not the storage box on the front. He was going to build his own storage box from aluminum diamond plate as he was a welder and can build one to his liking. The trailer did look odd with the long tongue, but I was thinking of all the uses you could do with the extended from frame.
