Lisa, Very nice Trillium! Does it have a kitchen window? I am going to need more pictures. I I would really like to add your trailer on this list?
Serial numbers on a Trillium
That is if you want to share your serial number.
Please post more pictures.

I'm glad you had a clear first choice between the two as that makes it much easier. I agree, beautiful trailer!

Thanks, everyone! We think we found a little gem! Appreciate all the tips. The door IS a little wonky. Appears as if one of the hinges has a loose screw.

ALSO...realizing we need to secure some a/c capability. What is the best way to do this with a Trillium??

Here ya go, all the photos I have right now! I am also interested in if I need to address the Trillium frame repair on our camper. The owner removed rust and "rustoleomed" the hitch, but the frame underneath is pretty rusty.

Lisa, I might suggest that you camp a few times in the Trill bf you go to the expense and work of adding ac. I have taken mine to Florida several winters now and never found the camper too hot. For camping in the more northern states, I doubt you will require ac.

Good suggestion, Noreen. I know with the humidity yesterday that preceded the storm that hit the Midwest yesterday, it got PRETTY HOT in the camper. Whew. We definitely need to get a fan. BUT, I do have to say the interior was completely DRY after that rain. Such good news for this former tent camper who has woken up wet on a few occasions!

I may be wrong but this looks more like a 4500 than a 1300 to me?
Is there a space under the floor of the big dinette that is either empty or has a soft plastic water tank in it?
Everything about the pics looks just like my 4500 did and not my 1300.
The sink area and a lot of other details scream 4500 at me!

Also if you can get a pic of the frame right where it exits under the trailer at the front we can see if it looks like the repair has been done or not.
Otherwise I detailed this in one of my replies earlier in the thread.

Paperwork says 1300. Two spaces under seats of dinette AND a plastic water tank included.

Also...camper doesn't have a battery installed and we'd like to have one. HOW to do this??

Will try and get out and take photo of frame when I get a chance...THANKS!!!!

Huh?
The water tank in a 4500 is under the floor section not the dinette and in fact if you fill it too much the floor will raise up a little!

Either way this is a very nice looking trailer.

Again the frame thing is not rocket science,you will either see metal plate welded over the area that gets weakened through time or you will not.

Are there any?

It's a 1300. The primary indicator is the location of the furnace. In this case the road side. On a 4500 it is on the curb side. There are a number of other indicators, but the kitchen window does make it look like a 4500. I would love to see a green 4500.
Your trailer has pretty much every option available. Very nice! Thank you for the data sheet. I will add your beautiful Trillium to the list.
Batteries are typically put on the tongue. There is a hole in the bottom of the trailer, on the road side. It can be seen in the gaucho, (front couch). That is where most of the electrical connections are made.

Thats a cute little trailor, congrats! They now have AC'S that are portable and have a catch bin for the condensation that sit in the floor. While it may not be the handiest thing to have with smaller campers, it would save you the hassle of cutting a hole in the roof or sides and could be left at home except till the few hottest months. I was looking at them at Home Depot, and they run a couple hundred bucks for a small but ample model.
