Don, A 4500 is almost exactly like a 1300, but with ~18" more length. This is distributed as a larger bed, kitchen, closet and front gaucho.

We looked at a 4500 last summer. We thought the extra length was quite noticable. Anyhow, it had some issues so we passed on it and instead started to modify our 1300. Always more than one way to solve a problem.

Doors on and carpet in. The carpet is a matt from canadian tire that I cut to size. Quick to remove and shake outside for cleaning but nice on ones feet in the morning.

I am not sure if I will put a door on the kitchen for a couple of reasons...its a nice horizontal surface to put things and it makes the trailer look wider if I can see inside. I was going to put a fold down door that would double as a small work surface.

Let me know what you think

I like the idea of the extra kitchen space with a fold down door. Put a towel bar on the outside of it so when it is closed, you can hang a decorative tea towel there to provide a focal point and added colour.

You'll want something to keep your items in place while traveling so a fold-down door would do double-duty. Depending on your design, it probably couldn't take much weight and could be a bit in the way of the aisle or awkward to access the inside (depending on the height/depth)-- an option could be a half-height door. You might want to round the top/outside corners for less bruising. Love the idea to add a towel bar!

Thanks for your replies. I love the towel bar too. I could put it on the lowest door so all the doors above it could open easily.

You could also build an edge on the inside of the kitchen door so things cannot slide off onto the floor. Kinda like a built in tray.

That would strengthen the door too. Maybe I should put a door in.

Don't forget the chain to hold the door level.

We just got back from 3 days in Jasper. The new layout worked very well for us. We will not be putting a door on the kitchen as its nice to have a surface to put things and it would limit our already limited floor space. Dog slept under the bed extension and our son took the couch. Couch was much better with the back removed.

Needless to say, I went to bed every night with a big smile on my face.

A quick shot of the trailer and my Tacoma in Wabasso campground just south of Jasper. I am not in the picture, they are friends who dropped by.

I have the Dremel but there some much cheaper knockoffs. There are lots of attachments but I used the rectangular blade that is about one inch wide
