Here is another 4500 to add to the list.

I bought it just over a month ago and it's my first travel trailer. I am the third owner I believe, with the owner before me having owned it for 30 years.

I thought it was a 1979, but looking at your list, it must be a 1978.

VIN taken from the insurance papers is 4511000929. Whatever paper may have been attached to the back of the closet door is long gone.

Details, since there seem to be so many curious people
- butter yellow interior
- toilet (avacado green) with port to the outside and hose stored in rear bumper
- front sink (molded butter yellow fiberglass)
- folding jump seat between toilet and front sink
- bi-fold door enclosing toilet and opening to create private "bathroom" space
- fridge - Dometic RM26E
- furnace - Duo-Therm 65512-002
- over the dinette shelves on 3 sides (back has doors that close, sides are open)
- drawers under the port side dinette seat
- dining table with a removable leaf you can use to make it bigger or smaller
- cutlery drawer in dining table
- two propane tanks
- electric brakes
- 1 7/8" ball hitch

I do have the owners manual (with the green cover) in French and English. I also have 3/4 of a vintage Trillium promotional brochure. I could add either of these to the document library if asked.

Sounds like a 4500 Deluxe with a front bathroom. I will add your trailer to the next revision. Could you please post pictures?

Is the fridge an RM26E, or RM36E?
Does the window in the door open?
Does your trailer have brakes?

The documents you offer are appreciated, but I believe they are already there.

We bought ours about 2 months ago and I don't see it on your list.
It's a 1980 - 4500 with the front bunks.
Serial # is 45-1121667

Phill, In your avatar, which one are you?

Also, please post pictures of your trailer. I would love to flesh out the later years of Trillium production, (I think 1981 is the last year). Yours would be the second last 4500 in the list.

The pictures I am requesting are:
Outside, front and one side.
Outside, back and the other side.
Inside, from the front to the back, floor to celing.
Inside, from the back to the front, floor to celing.
Inside, kitchen, floor to celing.
Inside, closet, , floor to celing.
Inside, data sheet that should be on the inside of your closet.
And any details of the appliances you want to share. Think data plates. I am especially interested in the converter that should be in the dinette side of the kitchen.

Yeah, I am kinda high maintenance.

Thanks!

Phil, Nice trailer!
Your furnace is different then all the earlier 4500 Trilliums. It is a forced air model, all the previous years used a gravity furnace. That is, no fan. CSA determined that the surface temperature was too high on these. This forced all trailer manufactures to abandon them. Yours would likely put out more heat. The old furnace was below the closet. I would like to see what they did with that space on your trailer. I would think they would put a door there.
Thanks for the pictures, your trailer will be on the next version of the list.

Your Awning probably slides into the metal groove above the door. Typically it is a rope sewn into the awning edge that attaches to the trailer. The rope is threaded into the grove. I would have a better idea if you post pictures.

Yes the heater puts out a LOT of heat. Good thing is it will also work on 12v (if you have a good battery I guess...I still have to pick up a deep cycle)

Interesting about the fan. I've included a pic of the closet with a swing out cubby near the door. I guess the rest is taken up with wheel well. Inside the closet is a door latch type thing that I couldn't figure out until I realized the table has a leaf and that is where you store it.
I've also included a clearer pic of the door sheet.

Mine has a roller with something to slide into the groove. The poles are supposed to attach to the other end of the awning when it is pulled out and sit on brackets on the bottom of the trailer so you're not bumping into poles on the ground. Trouble is I can't figure how to attach the poles to the pull-out part. I think something is missing or has been changed.
