I have finally gotten around to modifying my trillium
1300. We have had it for about 8 years and towed it through Saskatchewan, Alberta, Alaska and the Yukon. But the bed was always too small.
We never cook inside ( except my wife's morning coffee ) so a full kitchen is not needed. We have an ARB fridge
in the truck with the rest of the food/kitcheny bits.
Anyhow, heres what an afternoon with a grinder and a an oscillating tool can do...
I plan to create a wardrobe, the same as the one next to the door, where the front half of the kitchen used to be. The back half of the kitchen will be an extra seat in the daytime and the extra bed at night.
The oscillating tool with a regular blade is perfect for harvesting the ensolite. The removed material will be replaced once all the construction is done. I might have to harvest some from inside the existing wardrobe and replace it with bubble wrap.
Picture 1 shows some wood framing from the drawer unit I built when the icebox came out.
Picture 3 shows the roof reinforcing where the wardrobe wall will go.
Picture 4 shows where I have filled in the holes in the wall. The big hole was for the furnace
. We will be installing a Propex furnace
when I can decide on a good spot. Right now I am leaning towards putting it under the front couch (quieter at night).
Let me know what you think
