What a great job! I am curious to know what the closet will end up looking like.

I plan to keep the upper cupboard above the closet, and make a second cupboard about the same size below it. Below that is room for the bed but there is about 6" from the edge of the mattress to the remaining wall of the closet and I was going to make some little nooks for glasses and IPads. The real bonus is a large slide out under the bed will return more storage space than what was lost with the closet.

I suspect that if you brace the remaining wall of the closet, you will have enough support on that side. The kitchen still has the back splash, but I would still put a pole above what used to be the middle of the kitchen. This location would be in line with the vertical ridge in the remaining kitchen cupboard. This is a problem area in all Trilliums. They should have had a kitchen support pole at at least one end of the kitchen. This is actually more of a problem in the 4500 model.

I think you will be fine, but watch the snow accumulation.

Thanks David.
I've built a shelter for the Trillium.

Also I live near Victoria, so snow isn't a big issue.
In view of that, do you think the pole is important? I was going to cover the backsplash with 3/4" ply and do a mosaic backsplash, but the real intent of the ply was to stiffen that wall.

I think that you have retained most of the structure on the kitchen side. Since snow load is not an issue, I don't think you need to put in a pole.

It is something I plan to add to all my 4500's. The roof, above the kitchen, on my three 4500's all pool water there. Less of an issue on my 1300's.

Thanks I am hoping to be fishing Nootka Sound about that time but if not I may come up from Victoria for a visit.

Doug, I did a similar mod with our Scamp 13 in order to squeeze in a larger bed. When I saw how you finished out the sink and counter (nice work!) I thought I'd share the attached pics. The cut out closet is faced with 1 x 3. partly to add strength, partly to visually tie it in with the other cabinetry.

Our unit came from the factory with a rooftop AC. Interestingly, with the stock set up the roof showed a slight sag. After the mods - and it's been almost three years with plenty of road miles - no sag. I did make an effort to build in some structural support and I'm thinking it was worth the extra time and effort.

I resurrected this thread in hopes that Doug will fill us in on where things are at. The last pictures were very impressive and I'm hoping we'll get to see the completed mod. Raz
