Wow Fred, That's inspiring work, Well Done!
I have recently purchased a 1975 Trillium 1300(?) and it is in need of serious tlc. I don't think I could do all the cool mod's you have done to yours but I at least need to patch and refinish the outershell, replace all interior-walls, floors, upholstry, etc. and either refurbish/replace/86 existing utilities. I'm trying to soak up as much as I can so that I can make a plan... never have done anything like this!... wish me luck :}
Happy Trails,
mike

Mike,
Sure, it is a big project that can take a while, but it is very do-able, one small piece at a time.

I've discovered that you can fix things a bit at a time and camp with your trailer too.

Good luck!

Michael, at the top of the page near the right, click on Manufacturers, then Trillium. There's lots of Trillium only threads there (mine too, -shameless plug)
This is assuming you haven't already figured it out.

Fred: what was the size and brand name of the exterior hatch used? Looks great and we would like to do the same to our 4500. Thanks Greg

My hatches

Got the hatches from a boat place, just because the price seemed good and the somewhat odd size was hard to find.
