If you have two more to work on you must have been Trillium hunting aswell.

Check it out and it will fit both the 4500 or 1300...Pictures......I have the piece that goes on top the piece that goes inside the A/C unit and the control panel......

Well I worked hard on the ole 1300 today trying to get the "BIG" hole in the roof repaired where the roof A/C was before...The hole in the roof is huge so I used a piece of 7/16 plywood rounded the edges and glued a piece of marine grade vinyl on it..I looked and looked for a piece to match the interior and the piece I got really matches the interior very well..Alot better than I thought it would..Working alone makes it hard at times but I managed to get it installed with the help of 3 dead man braces I built....First I bowed the plywood with some old car batteries I had laying around.....Here's a few pictures..

The first of the week I plan on fiberglassing everthing in and getting the roof ready to be repainted, then I can start back redoing the inside..

After the Plywood piece has dried and is in place I've started finishing the roof..First I used fiberglass cloth that I cut into 3" strips and embedded them in fiberglas resin along the seams once dry I covered that with Short Strand Fiberglass filler, after that I sanded down the rough surface to some degree not totally smooth,(wanted to make sure it was rough enough for the bondo to get a good grip to the surface) and now starting to smooth it out with bondo..been a long day..will try to finish the roof tomorrow....A picture of my progress..(still pretty rough right now)...looks like tomorrow there will be alot of grinding going on.....

Do you do the roof work from a ladder or do you get up on the roof? If on the roof, do you support the roof inside the trailer. Raz

I've got a 6' rolling scaffold that I use......still a stretch to get it done though, but a lot better than a ladder..Check this out...Husband Ladder Accident

Here's a picture of my setup while working on the roof.....After 5 hours of work and 10 lbs of nose buggers after all that sanding I think it's ready to paint...It's not as smooth as a baby's butt...but then again it's not as bumpy and rough as my butt neither..It being the roof I'm going to put 2 coats of paint and 3 coats pof clear on it..I think 3 coats of clear will be good for the top since it take the most abuse from the elements...

I've also got 3 sets of used hinges for sale if anyone needs them..I posted them along with pictures in the classified section.....
