LOL Thanks for the welcome to 4500 family, Francesca. I too, am very interested in learning more about our campers. I do have a medallion outside my door.




Dave, when I posted last night, I had just come in from the camper, in the dark and cold to check the information inside the closet door. You're right. The fridge is not a 3607, it is a 360TF. (in the dark you can see how I made that mistake) It is a big fridge for a camper, measuring 30" from floor to top. And the base of the cupboards had to be made deeper to accomodate it. I will post pics of the inside of the camper so you can see what it looks like.

And, yes, the weight has been noted as 2000lbs or 910 kg.

Noreen, Your kitchen looks kinda like mine. You however have the staggered drawers above the cupboard door. I have seen that before. I have wondered about the reason for this. Is there something installed in the side of the counter, facing the dinette? If so, could you please post a picture of that?
I started a thread on the different versions of the kitchen:

Dave, here's a couple pics of the inside of my camper, taken when I was in Florida last winter.

Noreen, Very nice trailer! I notice that your shelves above the dinette are still the same colour as the Ensolite. All of the plastic has pealed off mine. Cute cat too. The distinctive factory front dinette is not very common. There are people searching high and low for one. Are all your cushions the same plaid?
After comparing your closet sticker and mine, some differences jump out. Your converter is a different model. That is what I think is installed in the dinette side of your kitchen. My converter is installed below my furnace. Your fridge is a bit bigger then mine as well. More than an inch taller, and a little more than half an inch deeper.

Dave, I must live right....or perhaps, have an angel watching over me. Years ago, when I decided I wanted to find a 13' Trillium to use when I retired, I found one for sale just around the corner from my house. I used it for many years. (couldn't bear to give it up so gave it to my daughter)
Then I decided I would like a 4500 Trillium, with the front dinnette when I started going to Florida in the winter. I spotted this one just a couple miles away as I returned home from visiting my daughter. I did not waste time 'thinking' about it. Of course it was in excellent shape and spotlessly clean. I had only the usual safety items taken care of since I've owned it.

Sorry, forgot to answer your question re. the plaid on the cushions. Yes, all the cushions are the same and match the colour in the curtains. I believe a previous owner must have re-covered them.

1978 4500 Serial number

Thought I would try to post pictures of the sheet inside the main cupboard, serial 1100893 for my 1978 4500, front gaucho.

Am also including a picture of the drawer unit, with new lexan sides and drawer bottoms as the previous wood had mould.

I replaced the overhead bin bottoms (also mouldy) and doors with white lexan, but still need some way to stop the doors from sliding.

As I have the new tires, the tire manufacturer recommends 50 psi. Doesn't that replace the original posted recommendation?

I see that they made the same conversion error on the GVW. 4410 Kg is a bit more then the axle can carry.

Here is the data sheet for my 1300 trailer I call The Wedding Gift. It is a 1977 1300, with a front quarter bath room, (porta-pottie closet).

Not surprised! given the year of the trailer I suspect most of us where still a little rough in regards to calculations in metric. 1977 was when the cars and road signs where all changed and not until 1981 that fuel changed over....

Edit: Looks like instead of calculating 2000 lbs to kgs they converted 2000kgs to pounds. 2000 kgs = 4409.245 lbs.

According to the conversion from kilo grams, back to pounds on my 4500, I can carry 9700 pounds. I don't think I will give that a try.

Here's mine from my 1978 Trillium 1300. No bath. It's interesting that the first 2 digits after 13 are 22 instead of 11 but the last four digits are only 198 apart. 5688 vs. 5886.

Don't know what it means, but, it's interesting!

Cantaloupe Serial number.

The closet door has been changed, but this is what was attached to the inside. I think it may actually belong to this trailer.

The important info:
The serial number is 13-609. Fairly early.
Under Gas-burning apliances it says "2 Burner Stove" it has no model number.
1200 lb max GVW.
130 lb tongue weight.
6.00 x 13 Recommended tire size.
28 lb max load recommended tire inflation pressure.

So, to update Franchesca's table:

Francesca:45- 1100758...'78: Front Gaucho
David: 45- ......1101043...'78: Front Gaucho
Noreen:45-... ..1121733...'81: Front Dinette
Scot M: 45-.....1100893...'78: Front Gaucho
David: 13-.......1105688...'77: Front 1/4 Bath
Spanke: 13-.....2205863...'78: Front Gaucho
David: 13-.......609..........'73: Front Gaucho

Here is where someone could really help me identify the year of my Cantaloupe. If another 73 is 610, well then that would be proof positive.

From an old add

I was going through old adds. I am trying to figure out when the 1300's changed the furnace to the rounder style.
I came across another data sheet from a 1979. It is lower resolution, but readable.
SN: 45-1121172
Furnace: Duo-Therm 65512-2
Range: Brown ZML 003Y
Fridge: RM360TI
Power Converter: Pro. Dynamics PD-6921

Bering a 1979 the Metric mass is correct at 910 kg.

If the interpretation of the serial number is correct, this is a front dinette unit. All the pictures from the ad were exterior shots, so no way to tell.
CANADA - 1979 - Trillium 4500 - $2000

1979 - 1300 Front Bath

Thank you to Brett (bgurholt) for providing this data sheet from a 1300 that had a factory front bathroom across the whole front, with a sink and everything. That has got to be a very rare unit. As Trilliums go, it is loaded with every available option. It is advertised for sale in the following thread:
http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...tml#post369079
It looks like the serial number is in the same format as my quarter bath unit.

So, to update the list:
Francesca:45- 1100758...'78: Front Gaucho
David: 45- ......1101043...'78: Front Gaucho
Noreen:45-... ..1121733...'81: Front Dinette
Scot M: 45-.....1100893...'78: Front Gaucho
Unknown:45-....1121172...'79: Front Dinette (assumed)

David: 13-.......1105688...'77: Front 1/4 Bath
Spanke: 13-.....2205863...'78: Front Gaucho
David: 13-.......609..........'73: Front Gaucho
Brett: 13-........1106227...'79: Front full bath
