Mike, they would be easy to add. Just drill a 1/2 hole and glue a piece of plastic screen over it to keep the insects out. Voila you have factory drains.

Sounds like the "factory" weep holes I had to install on my '68 Catalina's rear quarter panels. The seals were bad on the trunk lid so they would collect a couple of gallons on each side. No problems after the drains were installed.

It was a gas sucking beast. I didn't feel a bit bad drilling holes in it at the time.

That's it? No one-way valve or anything to keep out splashup when driving in rain?

I have never noticed any water coming in. We have 22,000 miles on ours. The floor is 1/2 inch thick plus the screen so that should work unless the floor is underwater.

Floor drain holes.

I bought my Trillium with rotten floor which is under fridge's bottom. It could be result of front window leak or fridge drain hose. Anyway, after replace new plywood with resin covered I replace fridge's drain hose going thru floor. Also drill 4 drain holes at 4 corners of Trillium. Each hole is glued with a hard plastic pipe about 2 inches going thru floor to prevent splash while driving in rain. No water condensed, no moisture ever since...
