New-to-me '78 Trillium 4500, S/N 45-1100994. While I have the sticker, it is not affixed to the closet wall. It was actually folded in half onto itself, so I took 2 photos and put them together as one.

Nice! A 4500 deluxe, in excellent shape. New covers on the cushions.

I can't tell from the outside shot, is the rear bumper a 4"x4" square tube?

Is the white, (Colonial white?) finish on the upper cabinets original? It has fallen off on all my 4500's.

Is the axle rated at 2000 lb?

On the list, your Trillium will be between two of my trailers. Yours looks just like them. They are nice eh? I think I know your trailer, almost as well as one of my own.

Yes, David...the rear bumper is a 4x4 square tube and the finish of upper cabinets is original although definitely showing its age somewhat! I was told the axel was rated at 2000 lb, but I didn't verify it. How could I go about checking that? It's a great camper... I'm SO ready to have more freedom to GO! (Working on that!)

Nice!

It looks like you have the split dinette table; did it come with the leaf that goes in the center?

Yes, Francesca...I have the leaf for the dining table. It was stowed in the closet at the time I took the photo.

Unfortunately, the only way to check the axle, as far as I know, is a data plate, about dead center on the axle. I had mine jacked up to see it. Since you are in Florida, at least you wont have to roll around in the snow. Also, the brake on the original were 7".

Are the brakes 7"?

The reason I was asking is because I suspect that your axle is original. If it is, it is possible that it is still good, but may have less travel then when new. If the arms on your axle are still more or less level, then the rubber has at least not disintegrated, though it may be harder then when new.

I changed my 2000 pound axle to a 3500 pound unit, with 10" brakes. I also changed my coupler to a 2" ball, also rated at 3500 pounds. I think I went with too much axle capacity. If I had to to do it over, I would shoot for 2500 pounds, and 7" brakes. The coupler would be the same.

In my opinion, you have just about the best trailer in that size range. You are fortunate. Enjoy!
