That would be perfect. I think the width I am looking for is 2 1/2" which seems to be a little hard to find. 2" doesn't cover up some of the flaws and 3 is a little over the bend. But I will get some 3" painters tape to check and see. Thanks Randy

I actually found a place that I am having my coupler replaced at that does spray on bedliners. He said he could do the belly band as well as the lower front where rock chips occur. I will let you know which route I go. Even if I do the belly band with the bed liner I think I will get some of the reflective tape for parts of the side for safety.It looks like that stuff really sticks out when the light hits it. Thanks Randy

Stripes

[QUOTE=Gumpit;229614]The new stripes are

Where did you find stripes so close to the original??? I need to do belly band on my 4500, wet sand and polish finish with new stripes would be ideal.

DecalZone, Solid Vinyl Roll Striping I got the Olympic Blue. It is a little lighter but looks close enough for me. You can probably get them to send a sample of that or another shade.

$14.50 for 68"... That will do one stripe next to the " TRILLIUM 4500" logo.

I bought the 50 ft roll. So I could do the lower stripe as well.

Mine does not have the lower stripe. Maybe because I don't have the "deluxe" model.

Thank you Gumpit, and Roy in T.O. I noticed Decalzone also offers striping in 4", perfect to cover the belly band repair in same blue... Best news I've had this week.

Trillium site offers a tire cover with logo, seems expensive but i like the idea of original look with logo, may pop for that too if resorative work turns out well. thx.

I'm not sure, this page says six models.
There were standard and deluxe options for the 1300, 4500 and 5500. But that did not include washroom layouts. Or were the washroom layouts automatically deluxe? Time for the Trillium King to pipe in.

Roy, that brochure came when we bought our 1980 Trillium 4500 recently, and I uploaded it to the document centre a couple of days ago. I only got a very old photocopy, not the original brochure. It appears to be from 1977, which I think is the first year that the 4500 was introduced (because the Trillium RV website says so). I don't think, but am not sure, that it refers to the 5500 model yet.

I have been puzzling about the "6 models" statement as well. I think, but am not sure, that it refers to the 4 that are pictured, the double front bunk and toilet model for the 1300 and 4500, and also the front dinette model for each as well. We have the front dinette model, so I know it existed by 1980. My guess is that it existed in 1977 as well, but I am not sure. Have I mentioned that I am not sure about it?

Well, this is getting far off the belly band theme, but I just had a look at the Trillium 5500 introductory letter in the document centre. I was surprised to see a 10 year anniversary medallion on it listing 1969 - 1979 for the company, because I had thought that the first Trilliums came along about 1970 or 71. The other thing was that it seems from that letter that the 5500 was introduced in 1979, so it would not have been one of the models referred to in the 1977 brochure.

Well I have decided to remove the bathroom. I have already removed the holding tank and toilet the previous owner installed. I took out the top where the sink sits and wraps around the front. I believe I have to unbolt 2 of the floor body bolts to remove the rest. Has anyone done this? Do I need to reinforce anything or can I just fabricate seats and mount a table on the floor. I plane on laying down 3/4" plywood on the floor first for support. Randy
