Trillium Sleek and Modern Update

Well after purchasing our Trillium 4500 in May of last year we finally did the only thing I knew would make us finish this massive overhaul...we made camping reservations with friends. And so, with a week to go we knocked it out with the help of a few friends.

Completely new cushions in a modern, sleek gray vinyl.
New paint throughout...bright white! Bye bye ugly smokers yellow walls
Custom cut and glued hardwood floors...solid maple in an amazing geometric pattern.
Powdercoating of stove top, and heater cover.
New lights inside and out, with custom gold finish on the inside, courtesy of my clever wife and some awesome paint.
New paint on all the hardware fixtures.
Stripped off all the old tinting with a steamer...pain in the toosh.
New Jack and paint on the front frame.
Bye bye rotted belly band and hello bondo with a bright white belly band.
Baby moon rims and beauty rings to follow.
New shag carpet...gotta have something 70's right.
Gold Polka dots in the kitchen to define the space.
New bearings.

We finished the day of leaving for our trip with our kids nagging every five minutes "when are we leaving?" Always fun when you are super stressed and exhausted from sleep deprivation because you stayed up late painting hardware gold and cabinets white.

Our first trip was amazing!!! we are trillium lovers for life, even with our 3 kids in 15 feet of small, albeit posh space. I even fit my 6'4" frame on the bottom of the front bunk space quite nicely. I can't believe wifey slept all 4 nights tucked between 3 kids...she gets a gold star for that for sure.

So who knew in San Diego County (agua caliente) we would be in for a surprise rain shower our second night and wake to snow the next morning...say what! Surprising we slept comfortably in our little bubble without much notice until the next morning. Gorgeous and an added bonus for the kids.

In the end we wouldnt trade our little bubble for any of our friends pricey 30 plus foot RV's.

Here are a few before and after shots...its hard to believe how bad it was. We are talking black mold and rats nests. Yeesh. I remember when my wife wouldnt even step inside of it because it was so bad and she would make me strip down before coming into the house while cleaning it. Fond memories.

A labor of love for sure. Still got many little things to do on it and a few big, like redoing the electrical and adding solar. My favorite by far was the flooring, big bang for the buck. Post up some pictures sometime of yours.

Great job Barak! The difference between before and after, is night and day. I bet the kids are anxious for another trip. Thanks for sharing!
