Thanks, I had posted in that thread that I had found them already from Barrie ..didn't know how to go back and delete the thread....................

As soon as the weather changes I hope to contiue with the renov. I just got back with Nancy's trillium and so the work contiue's makes number 5 now, I think now I might be able to start a rental business having 5 of them for a time if that don't work then it's time to sale I guess. I've got 3 grown kids and wanted them to go on camping trips with Mom and Dad but it never seams to all come together even when Dad's suppling the campers

Just according to how they are installed,on this one all of them had been removed and reinstalled by a previous owner who used all the wrong stuff to reinstall them , mainly siclone and they had to be pryed out, and then all that mess cleaned up..I've taken them out on all of ones I've owned because there has always been some water damage, rusty screws and wood rot to some degree around them.I put them back in with aluminum poprivets or stainless screws....I really don't believe you will have much of a problem removing them..I'm still using the RedMax and it really looks good and holds up great, really makes cleaning the camper a breeze.. dirt and grim just sprays off...Thanks Randy

Hey Randy, did this trailer come with awning rails on both sides? I have never seen that on a Trillium before.

Great threads by the way!

No I put the back one on for the buddy I bought it from, he was going to put awnings on both sides so he could store stuff under the back one when it rained but he never got the extra awning. I'm thinking about putting 2 bag awnings on the sucker

Rebuilding the overhead cabinet, the front overhead cabinet was coming apart and the wood was all to pieces.So here is my solution to the problem, I rebuilt it out of fiberglass panels so they will never rot again, the doors are two layers thick because they are a little flimsy, I glued them together with formicia glue. All I like now is putting on the stops, knobs and reinstalling it..A few Pictures....

This is the inside before I start.... I've scrubed all the walls and ceilings using 1/2 bleach and 1/2 water and the fumes were terrible so right off the bat I setup a large industrical fan on one end and opened all the windows and got'er done. there were several moldy spots and lot more dirt than I had first though. Looks good now..Pulled out all the rubber trim thats in the walls at the covering seams boilded them to remove all the dipples and reinstalled them already...I'll be putting in hardwood floors, wood trim around the windows and new curtains...
