Inside our 1975 Trillium 1300 - cupboards

I decided to take out all the propane appliances, which I still have if anyone is looking for parts. I cut out the area where the fridge and stove were and installed a new electric fridge. Where the propane heater was situated, I now have a cupboard for storing my pots and pans. The colour of the inside is now Honey Gold by Benjamin Moore, as is the screen door. This stain is great for keeping your wood in good shape, will not warp and is also an excellent sealer against dampness. I kept the sink and water holding tank in case we decide to boondock at some point. I installed a cupboard above the sink, with doors, to keep our salt, pepper, etc. in while traveling.

Very nice....I really like that fridge.

Do you do your cooking outside? I don't imagine we'll do much cooking inside out Scamp, never did much when we had the pop-up years ago.

Excellent!! The fridge top still provides the same amount of 'flat surface' so you really aren't losing anything! And if you want to cook, you could use a small electric hotplate or a portable propane burner sitting on on top the fridge. GREAT IDEA!

Hi,
I have a two burner electric hotplate (acquired at Canadian Tire) and I carry a portable propane Coleman as well as a portable BBQ. If we are going field tripping for the day, and if electricity is available at the campsite, I put on a full meal in a Crock Pot and it's always ready at the end of the day.

Hi, Aubrey

Love your screen door! Did you build it?
Can you post some pictures of the frame?
I'm wondering how you compensated for the trailer curvature when you installed the door...

Thanks

Francesca

Hi,
I'm looking for a replacement steel top for my Brown stove. If yours is in better condition than mine, I'd love to get it from you.
Thanks, Dee

The door looks a little lopsided in this pic and it's because I am shooting with a wide angle from above. A scribe was used to outline the frame of the door and the inside is squared off. The screen door sits inside the outside door by about 6 inches. Take a look at Gord 100's web site on his Trillium and you will get dimensions etc as to how the door comes together.

Hey Aubrey,
Looking good.
If the lower fridge vent is available and matches that for my 4500, I'd like to put dibs in on it.

Gord is a super friendly guy and loves to visit. Last time I saw him at a gathering or on one of the forums was several years ago.

Hi Aubrey, I saw that you sold your Trillium but was wondering, did you make your own screen door? I am looking to get on made for my 1977 Trillium 4500.

I live in Orleans ON. Do you know if anyone makes them in the area?
Thanks,
CorinneL
