Thanks Koot! Still have alot to do, but I am cose to having it weather tight to get it through the NH winter. Hopefully I can put a small heater inside and keep working on it and be ready for spring. That's the plan anyway.

Of the four Trilliums I own, two are 4500's. By The time they came out, the frame issues had all been worked out.
One of my 1300's is a 1977. It is not involved in the recall. It has lots of reinforcements. I think the other 1300 is a 1973. When I bought it, it was registered as a 1979, but I know that is not true. The frame is constructed from C channel, not square tube, and it has a leading axle. I plan to replace it all together.

Maybe the insert link thing will work better.

Your pictures are amazing! I am especially interested in your door rehab. While your trailer may have been in rough shape when you got it, you are clearly on your way to a pristine nicely optioned unit.

It seems a shame to suggest this, after all the work you put into your vent, but one of the better mods is a powered fan vent. Like a Fantastic vent, (http://www.fantasticvent.com/) or other models. It's like half as good as air conditioning, with 1% of the power draw. It requires a 14" vent, as opposed the 9" vent that both my 1300's have. I put a powered vent on one of my 4500's. They rock. After patching up the hole for the furnace on the Cantaloupe, I plan to put a 14" hole in place of the 9" vent it came with.
