I just bought a Trillium
1300, that I want to fixup and restore.
There is a vertical crack about 3-5 inches long in the fiberglass outer shell on the left front corner, just above the belly ring. The two pieces of the fiberglass on either side of the crack do not mesh up evenly, didn't pop back out in the right sequence. So there is an actual bump in the skin.
There are also some small spider spider web stress cracks a little higher on the skin in the same gereral area as the deeper crack. I also can see a very small crack in the skin just below the belly ring that lines up with the larger crack above the belly ring, but this crack popped out in the correct sequence, so there is no bump in the skin below the belly ring.
Also, the belly ring seems to have been damged and popped loose (pulled a rivet or two out) towards the back of the camper behind the cracks.
The guy I bought it from said a friend of his cut it to sharp and bumped into something, which caused the crack. I decided to buy the camper inspite of the crack.
My question is how would be the best way to fix a crack in the outer skin of the fiberglass and what material to use. Also, how best to get the bump out of the skin where the two pieces didn't pop back out in the correct sequence without causing any more damage or any structual damage.
Any help or thought would be appreciated.
