1978 Trillium 4500 in Oklahoma

It is for sale on Craigslist in Northwest Oklahoma. My wife and I went to see it but we didn't buy it because it wouldn't fit in our garage. I'll try to post the link but I'm not very good at that sort of thing. Vintage Trillium Trailer

This camper looks like it once had a roof A/C unit on top you can see in the pictures of the outside where the added build-up piece is on the roof.. Also looking at the kitchen picture there is a metal post that helps support the roof that other Trillium's do not have, wish he would have posted pictures of the ceiling inside the camper so we could all see just what is going on there.... Couldn't tell if this one had a toilet in it at one time or another because he didn't supply a picture of that area either.. The kitchen cabinet is extended out for the larger refrigerator also...

I looked at the trailer. The seller told me he thinks the built-up area on the top of the camper was designed that way to accommodate an air-conditioner. He said a relative of his bought it new, so I infer it has never had an a/c. From up top, there is a crack on this built-up area. From inside the trailer, the ceiling is concave in the corresponding area. In the middle is a white cover about 12 inches square attached on the corners with screws.

This trailer is equipped with a toilet. It is behind a door next to the fold- down seat at the hitch end.

I've had one with the A/C on top but it was shot and I took it off because over the years the roof had started to sag.. I fiber glassed the hole and threw the built-up piece in the garbage because no one wanted it.. It was huge and weighted a lot would have been very costly to ship anyway.. If that camper was closer I would jump on it front baths with a toilet I've found to be scarce as hen's teeth...

Someone needs to grab this trailer! It solves the two issues my wife had with a Trillium: air conditioning and a toilet. Love the front bench seat!

13 foot vintage trailer plus bathroom plus roof air = priceless.

I need to resist!

Randy, that looks like a bunk above the dinette.

Yes. It has a bunk above the dinette. It also has trailer brakes.

Seller told me someone is supposed to pick it up today. He said he will call me if the deal falls through.
