We bought our 25B25RQ when we didn't know what we were doing or the differences. We literally looked at every available trailer type and model and by sheer luck stumbled onto the Bigfoot
and immediately fell in love with it. Two years later we are still learning and still in love. We have no regrets of any kind. Ours is a 2008 and does not have the front cargo. I can appreciate you wanting one, but I have never understood the idea of adding more tongue weight
. I am sure that you have your reasons, but my only advise is stick to your wants as you can but since the Bigfoot
line is somewhat rare don't worry if you don't get the front storage. You will find a way to store everything you could want another way. By the way, our first trip with our "BigApe" was to your beautiful state. Good luck.
