One last straggler showing the four 12 V outlets and the thermostat.

Manual for the furnace stated thermostat should be between waist and shoulder height. If it turns out to be too high I will move it.

There is another 12V outlet on the other side of the new wardrobe for use on the couch. It is visible on a previous picture.

Oh my goodness YES we did!
No cushions, no heater, no converter.
Frame is in excellent condition. Inside needs a good cleaning. Barry used some ZEP mold and mildew spray on it today. Starting to look better.
We are looking to peeps like you for inspiration and guidance.
Long live the EGG!

Sounds like you have an eggselent frame, thats important.

Whats not important are the cushions ( get new ones with your fabric and nice new foam), heater ( old, unknown past, have you seen my furnace thread) and converter ( check on ebay the new ones are better than the old ones and smaller)

long live the EGG

Nope, its the original mattresses with an extra bit added on. It will do for this year.

I noticed that your trailer couch has its moulded edges removed. The depth of the moulding gives alot of strength. What are your plans for that area...dinette for two?

Nope. Barry has to fix all that. It is going to stay as a gaucho/bunk beds. For grandkids one day way in the future.

If you're looking for a custom mattress I know a shop in Toronto that might help. He made one for me. Check my build thread for pics.

Thanks but I think shipping to Edmonton would break the bank. There is a lady just out of town who does a lot of cushion/matress work for the sailing community. Lakes a long time ( there is a significant off season ) but i hear her prices and quality are good. I will try her and see if it fits with my budget.

I think Raff meant me, if I was looking for a mattress.

Very inspiring Collin. The only complaint we have with our Trillium is the size of the bed. After a summer of camping we are looking at options but I really don't want to remove the kitchen. I'll keep following the thread though.

Hi Colin,
I like your bed rebuild. I'll be doing the opposite in my Boler, if anything, since it's just the dog and myself. I would like to know more about the jacks you use to stabilize your trailer. It looks like they hook to the tongue/frame and the back bumper? Are they stock or custom? How do they adjust, do you remember the cost and where might I get some? I'll be near Canada next month, so CA Tire is an option if they carry these in stock. Thanks.

Hi Lisa.

I PMed you but here is a picture. Princess auto on sale at the moment for $25 each but they do need to be welded on.

They make the trailer rock solid with no movement at all. I have lost other stabilizing jacks in the past by hitting them on uneven road surfaces so being able to remove these easily is great.

Each one can lift 2000 lbs so they are total overkill. It also means that it takes almost no effort to turn the handle to level the trailer.
