Hi Ches,
You did a beautiful job on that door. It is very satisfying to make something better. I really enjoy seeing everyone here willing to tackle these problems and solve them.

Trillium Hinges

I to have a 1978 Trillium 1300. My hinges were bad and I had replaced them from Kason. I installed them with nuts and bolts but this required making holes in the door and wall. Since I seem to be rebuilding mine (very slowly) I did not think it would be a big deal. I can post pictures if you like. My door is very solid now.

Steve

I have replaced 4 of the 6 hing screws with stainlees screws and nuts on the inside i covered the expoed treads from the machine screw with an acorn nut this prevents things getting hooked like seat cushions and my skin

Sorry it took me so long to post the pictures. I hope they post alright. Its no wonder it is taking me so long to get anything done with the trailer (no name yet).<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f0b59a5e0a06innerdoor.jpg/> <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f0b5aea1d4d2doorhinge4.jpg/> <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f0b5b0681661innerwall.jpg/>
I cut into the door jam and kept the piece to fiberglass back in when Im done. The ones in the door are in the open space betwen the wall and door when it is closed and I plan on either fiberglassing the hole in the door closed or putting a rubber plug in it. The door is very solid now and I really don't notice any sag or spaces. Im trying to work on the trailer more but way to busy. Feel free to rebuild my trailer Ches, you seem to be doing a very nice job on yours.

I was thrilled to see all the posting about sagging doors after unsucessfully tinkering with my own hinges.

I was wondering if anyone knew where I might find some new hinges or at least new bronze bushings for my hinges.

I did not think I would ever get these loaded. I have loaded pictures here before, but somewhere along the way I went brain dead. There was wood in the wall if I remember correctly. Maybe I should have put metal behind the nuts. I can always change it since it is taking me so long and it is still apart.

wood lol

i was not brave enoght to take the door or hinge side apart but i did enject a lot of minwax wood hardener into the holes . this is not the intended use as you are suppose to clean out loose wood and fill with wood putty but i gave it a shot i also used plastic srew inserts all seems to be tight <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f0b62bf493fanewhinge 001.jpg/>

Stephen-
It's hard to tell about size from photos but that "brass ball", as it is called on the Scamp parts list, looks just like the one I was fiddling with on my hinge assembly. The good news: it is only $1.50. The bad news: my hinge is somewhat different looking, so it may not be a match. Worth a toll-free call though: 1-800-346-4962. Ask for Steve.
