The bottom half of the mold on older Trilliums had an embossed Trillium logo (same as the door) on the opposite side of the trailer. If you take the top fridge vent off, you may see what's left of it around the edges, as most of it is taken out by the vent opening. I suppose ice box models without a vent, if such models exist, may actually have it intact.

I can confirm that, Daniel, as a Trillium nearby has neither a fridge nor a furnace and it has the matching flower on the cabinet side. Imagine, a Trillium without either appliance... you would think it was a Boler =)

Here's photo proof - this is my Trillium the day I brought it home (have put many hours into it so far fixing it up, with many more to go). You can clearly see an intact logo where the fridge vent would go. Notice the patch where the furnace USED to be (previous owner removed because it was falling apart). Don't mean to hijack a thread, but have any ideas on what to do with the hole left from the furnace vent???

How about a storage cubby door instead of a patch?

I've thought of the storage door idea - may end up doing that if I don't install a new furnace. On the other hand, an ice cream dispenser could be in my future...

I REALLY truly want to figure out how to do a doggie door in mine. You have one ready made!

On my 1972 a previous owner enlarged the furnace opening for a larger furnace - which is crazy because the Trilliums cook with just the smaller heater =). I was contemplating replacing with the original it but sometimes you just have to let things pass - really it works fine and looks ok.

I am amazed! What else are our Trilliums hiding from us?

If you're just concerned about the way it looks and you're not ready to start mixing fiberglass just yet, you could perhaps put a dummy vent cover over it...?

I think the idea of using it for outside storage has merit. I have seen several posts about having outside access for storing things like leveling jacks etc.. It's too bad it's on the non door side (unlike the Trillium 4500's) as it would be great to have it for dryfood storage for cooking =)

Well, you could put your extension cord, water hoses and stabilizing jacks. It's on the right side for those things. I would LOVE to have outside access to those things.
