Hi there, I just purchased a 1971 Trillium & was wondering what type of trim is factory around the door. I was wondering about the interior trim...is it available still. Also is it fairly easy to paint the interior cabinets??? I was also wondering if there were any laws reguarding fire alarms & C/O detectors. I'll try to upload a couple picts.

Thanks,
Paul

Hi Paul,

Great find, there are not a lot of 1971's around.

I would not recommend painting the interior. The fiberglass cabinets are really easy to keep clean are very robust - any paint job will require more maintenace and will never have the same fiberglass shine.

This website shows how great the orange interior can look with the right elbow grease:

I have seen the interior trim strips for sale at RV supply stores - if I find a link to a web site selling it I will post it.

I have black foam around the entire door like you have at the top.

I'd say that a good, two-part LPU sprayed paint job will be as good and long-lasting as the gelcoat, but that is not a casual proposition, and what Booker says is true about most "home" paint jobs.

I think the "pumpkin" interiors are cool, in a retro way, but that's just me. And the gelcoat is wonderfully hard and glossy.

And yeah, 1971....very early Trillium.

I don't know if anyone has ever found the exact plastic moldings that Trillium used on their interior seams, althoug people have made things work by trimming, etc. (I'm talking about the seam trim that fits into the little rail in between the insulation's panels.) If yours are just shriveled, you can put them in hot (near boiling, from what I've read) water and they will stretch back out "good as new."

Hi Paul, I am looking for a door seal (the mine looks exactly like yours). Can you let me know which one you have selected on the web site of trimlok?

Thanks!

TrilliumRV has this part listed on their website:

Hopefully that is the stuff you are looking for.

This is the door seal I used on my teardrop trailer. No leaks.

check your local auto wrecker. my door trim came from the trunk seal of a old Pontiac... works great. it goes on the trailer, not the door.
