Question questions re reno's to 1973 trillium 1300

Hi! I am new to the forum/have owned the above trailer for 8 yrs.....it was painted teal green above the belly band (B and black below BB to match the PO's hot rod! The ensolite is ok.....recently cleaned with bleach/water....it was brush rolled by PO in white. Here are my questions:
1/ does anyone know how to build the shelf/cupboard unit above the front and rear windows? If yes, detailed photos or instructions would be wonderful?
2/ can the entire closet and fridge/stove/heater fibreglass sections be removed and if yes, how?
3/ what kind of inverter and battery system do i need so that as I drive my truck, it charges that battery to run lights inside the trailer?
4/ has anyone ever relocated the factory heater from under the sink to the bottom of the closet and if so, how? (I worry about my sleeping bag catching fire with the original heater's location).
Thanks for any info and this site and its members are awesome! Have a great day.

We solved the worry about sleeping bag melting/catching fire years ago in our Boler at the time by fashioning a wire guard that kept the bag away from the hot heater surface.. Easier than relocating the heater I think!

The factory used a fibreglass shelf that screwed into the top of the window frames. The front one also mounted to a wood block, under the ensolite, by the door.

No. The closet, and kitchen hold up the roof.

If you have a 7 pin trailer connector, then there is 12VDC power supplied. The tow vehicle can charge the battery, and run the lights.

Here is what I did in mine.
It was pretty simple as there is wood around the windows all the way around so all I did was build frames from clear pine 1x2 and skin them with 1/4" birch plywood so they are very light and plenty strong too.
It would be simple to build them door fronts if thats what you need but I just used them to store bedding really.

Hope this helps.

advice for installing a shelf
