RV Upgrades

O.K., so I came across this youtube video of Will Smith's RV and I'm thinking, Wow, there are some cool ideas here that I'd like to incorporate into my '73 Trillium 1300 renovations. I'm curious to know if anyone in the FibreglassRV Community has implemented similar upgrades

Being a coast-dweller, I decided on a different approach for my Trillium remodel. She's much more nimble now that she's amphibious.

I wonder if it is over the weight limit to tow with my Pilot?

Even if they would trade, I couldn't afford the fuel.
I'd just have to go with the tides. And that wouldn't be good.

If I were a lot younger, I could build my own on a smaller scale.

Never mind, Carl...we're happy to share with our friends! Any time you're in the area we'll roll ashore and take y'all aboard- Snoozy, tug, and all. There's a Super Special Beamer-Upper under the awning there.

Does it come with flanges for electric brakes?

Much nicer then the monstrosity that Steve Jobs had built for a mere $200 million.

During the remodel we decided to just stay with the original Rub-r-Ride axle, factory equipped with brakes already.

We did upsize the load range on the tires, though. Had quite a time finding LR "∞" to fit the 13" factory rims, but we so wanted to preserve as much of the Classic Trillium 4500 look as possible!
