The other two 1300's will eventually be fixed up and sold.
You shouldn't have disclosed that. Now a bunch of us will be writing and asking you to adopt us! I want a Trillium too, "Daddy"! LOL

...I agree with David. Here is my 1300Trillium with my towing vehicle as a little 4cylinder Toyota wagon. We have been camping for a few years with the same gear. The Trillium has capacity of sleeping 4 , no bath but with faucet and water tank for cooking isnide when necessary. It has 120VAC, 12VDC and 120VAC power alone it could even branch for....another pop-up camper..Just a share...

...When camping ...DRY in which we used to go with a group, my Trillium will utilize its smart charger and this charger would be charged by towing vehicle once a while. About bath, we use a make-shift out door shower( it is a formation of a tarp b/t 2 trees and 2 other make-shift poles. At night time, everyone in my family ( 2kids, me and the wife) can have a warm or really hot shower as wish. Our camping fire always has a big pot of hot water when we sit around camp fire eating and drinking. The fresh water is supplied from 2 of 200liter barrels( home made with valves, specialty for campings), take water twice a day by one of my friends' P.U truck. Believe me or not, both camping dry of hydro hook-up, we enjoy them very much. One way we have all kinds of freedom and privacy, partying all night...noisy all as wish and the other with park shower for convenience but...less of privacy or even got complaint from fellow campers.....If someone asks me to choose a light camper with bath,...my answer will be BIG NO...Just a share...

That has already been proposed, and rejected. The plan to supply a trailer to my kids started as a way to eject my oldest, (currently 19) who has very low ambition. I didn't want him to die, so I decided to provide some shelter, somewhere else.

The plan kinda backfired. After I purchased "Launch Pad", The twins, (soon to be 17) asked, "what do we get?". So began my Trillium journey.

The plan is especially off track, as my 19 year old still lives with us, for now.

I agree 100%, Randy. I think a built-in bathroom a waste of precious space in such small trailers.

Why dedicate what must be at least a third of interior space to something that might be used for an hour a day, total? "Privacy" concerns if using the porta potty are easily taken care of by the everybody-else-shut-yer-eyes-or-step-outside method. And it's not like any 13er will carry enough fresh/waste water capacity to last through more than a day or two of showers etc., so in order to use a shower much at all one needs hookups, which means campgrounds, which usually also means showers available.

We're dedicated drycampers, too, and also use heated water, solar showers, and of course the tried-and-true sponge bath.

Meanwhile, back at the trailer: There's room for at least six people to sit down and eat, and for four people to sleep.

Wait- once we had a toddler sleeping on the floor under the dinette...make that room for five people to sleep, so long as one of them is less than three feet tall.

...Unlike other campers....when the time goes by, their trailers would be mostly rotten, old and added more defects. My Trillium which I have my hands on all of the modifications will be changed after very camping trip. One could see from photos, from inside, outside , paint job or even a stripe. At every camping trip I always try to gather info, hand-on experiences from the trip. From the convenience to the necessity...from the other trailers to my every trip towing, when not camping, my Trillium will be gradually changed to adapt with....better campings. This year, we will have long campings and of course more changes to the Trillium...Also more photos of trips will be posted. Just share with you....
