Sorry, I don't mean to hi-jack, but I'm sure there's a quick answer and we can all go about our business as usual.

After looking at the included photos...



Why does the kitchen area of my 1978 Trillium 4500 look different than this one? My stove/refrigerator doesn't jut-out like that and there's a wide drawer above the fridge, beneath the stove. Also my sink is larger (I think) and the drawer cover in the sink area is as wide as the cupboard door below it.

Edit: Wait. I just looked again. I only have one drawer in the sink area - this one appears to have two skinny drawers.

I suspect that the fridge in your unit is smaller. I have two 1978 Trillium 4500 trailers and both have the kitchen pictured. I have seen a variation where the two skinny drawers are offset from each other. I suspect that there is something installed in the cabinet facing the dinette, maybe a power converter? Since the stove requires the jut, is it possible that you have a two burner stove? Or it is possible that your counter is larger by being flush with the fridge all the way to the dinette.

I've got 6 Trilliumns and none has the cabinet pictured, and I thought I had seen it all...Guess you learn something new everyday...great looking camper... if I were closer I'd buy both of the one's you posted David and add them to the herd.

Yes, I could not figure out why some Trilliums have 4" bumpers and others do not over a number of years. While at bolerama last weekend Tom from Trillium RV said that originally the 4" bumpers were meant for washroom models, to hold the hoses. Apparently some, like me got the 4" bumper without having a washroom.

Tom jokingly asked me if I wanted to pay for the unintended upgrade. I suggested he ask the original owner.

I don't mean to contradict Tom, but I think the 4" bumpers were good for storing the awning poles. My first trailer has the 4" bumper. It was a 4" when I bought it, but when I asked Outback/Trillium to put a reciver on the back of my trailer, Joe Pointed out that the 4" bumper was made of bent sheet metal, not HSS. Not structural at all. My neighbour had a 0.125 HSS 4" square tube that he gave me. That is what now supports my receiver. If you look at the bottom of the 4" bumper, you can see the seam. On mine, Trillium only welded it in a few spots along the bottom.
I think my second 4500 has it as well, but I can't tell for sure from the pictures. It is weird owning a trailer I have never seen.

I did email these folks to see if they were heading on any vacations to southern Alberta or BC but no such luck!
Probably just as well lots of these trailers are a distance for me or I think I would have a 'herd' too.
This one looks really nice.
