Trillium Progress!

I bought my 1974 Trillium 1300 a few months ago and have spent my evening and weekends refreshing the interior and exterior. Just got the trailer back from the painters and am super happy with the new paint job!

Thanks Fred! Just took a look at yours as well and it looks AWESOME!!! I am still working on the inside and find myself to be slow with the picture taking so interior pics will be coming in the next week or so. I didn't see to many interior pics of your 4500, do you have any posted?

My interior is a "Work in Progress" shall we say. ;-). Photo Attached

This weekend I taped and covered the windows in preparation for an interior spray coat of paint.

I have a July 4th trip planned; I'm hoping to get my electrical systems and water systems in place by then.

You are spraying the Insolite? You will have to take pics so I can see how it turned out!

Oh wow, I have done quite a lot just to get it back up and running. I don't think a thing was touched, or cleaned since 1980! I went through all of the electrical and replaced what was needed. Upgraded the electrical outlets and replaced all of the lights. This weekend was plumbing. My least favorite part of the reno, but it all worked out just fine and I was able to replace the kitchen counter with a wood top that a wood working friend had made for me while the kitchen sink was out! The cushions come back this week from the upholsterer and the draperies go out to be made up! I am hoping to be camping in it by the end of June! Interior pics to follow in the next few weeks!

Moon,
Can you elaborate on your installation of electrical outlets? I'm wondering if I should install electrical boxes like I would in a house, or if there are possibilities.

What kind of paint for the interior. I met a guy in LA who was restoring a Burro and he found some flexible paint and had painted onto his ensolite like insulation. It was green and seemed very sci fi. Soft flexible, alien skin like walls. But looked awesome for easy clean up. Not sure how durable over time.

Eventually, I'm going to have to figure out something to replace/cover my Scamp's rat fur. Can't take that bare fur to the fine powder "sands" of Burning Man!

I had 3 electrical sockets to replace. Mainly because when I tried to plug in my corded tools the sockets were so old that the plug would just fall out... Not good. Two of the sockets were original and one was added way back when. On the two original they were located under the bench seat and on the side of the kitchen. For both of those I used the typical blue remodel j-box from Home Depot. I had to use a Dremel tool to make the opening a little larger but I wanted to make sure that the rear electrical of the outlet was properly covered. For the additional one that was added on, it was located on the front/side of the upper cabinet in the kitchen. For that I used a shallow box so I would have not encroach on the space for storage, but again, the rear part of the outlet was properly covered and makes sure no electrical shocks would be had.

Door Weather Stripping

Hey All!

I've started working on the Trillium again, as the weather is finally cool enough to do so! One of the final items that I am looking for is the weather stripping for the entry door. From what I can tell from the old piece that I took off because it was basically disintegrated, is that there is a rubber U-channel that hooks on to the body of the trailer, and a piece of weather stripping that attaches to that. If anyone knows of a good source, let me know! Thanks!
