Or one minute of use thirty times a day.

I was using a sort of rounded-up total there...we do all our reading while seated outside-
on lawn chairs, I hasten to add.

The same argument could also be made for multiple bathrooms in a house. You can only use one at a time! Obviously convenience for the owner and guests is the answer, but most people have pretty spacious bathrooms for little time usage.

If I lived in a house with an area of less than 80 square feet inside, it wouldn't have a dedicated potty-place, either.

Privacy is easily managed by the nonuser-step-outside-or-shut-yer-eyes method....

If you ever went into this bathroom and closed the door, you would wonder what it is for. I have one of these trailers. It is going to one of my twin daughters. She is the small one, so she doesn't feel so claustrophobic in it, but I would not be able to sit and close the door. So it would not be very useful to me. She likes it though.
It might make a good sized closet though.

It looks like no one bid on the trailer before the ad expired. It has been reposted:
1972/73 13' Trillium Fiberglass Camper in RVs & Campers | eBay Motors
Now it has one bid at $2000, but the reserve has not been met. I wonder what the reserve bid is? Especially since they want a $2000 deposit 24 hrs after auction closes.
Since the year has been corrected, (sort of). I am wondering if they have read our discussion. Based on the type of furnace, I would still put it later then 1973. Makes me wonder if they have title.
Here is a trailer that I beleve is a 73:
Fabulous Light Weight Trillium Trailer-"Trudy" - Alberta Travel Trailers, Campers For Sale - Kijiji Alberta Canada.
The logo is wrong, but I think it was put on by the owner. Note the style of furnace:

Of course they have- we're famous Worldwidewebwise as the Authority in the Field!

P.S. to seller, if you're "listening":

If I were you I'd wait 'til spring, when more folks' thoughts are turning to camping....better seller's market, in my opinion!

Here is a '76 that the reserve was not met. The pictures show what appears to be an escape window in the front. Can that be original? Raz

Dang! "Listing expired"- gone when I got there...too late to poach a pic!

But I think Trillium did put the first escape window up front...don't know what year. David might know...or Randy Bishop, if we ever hear from him again!

That would be news to me. I have seen them on the front, but I can't come up with a use for that. The door is just as easy to get out of from the front. I assume that they took out the windows, and re-installed them in the wrong place.

Randy Bishop is around. According to his profile, he logged on Jan 14.

Well, I sure don't see Randy posting- maybe I'm following the wrong threads.

Per Trillium escape window placement- it may be that the one just mentioned was a first attempt just to comply with a new requirement or something, but I think it's stock. They obviously came to their senses location-wise very shortly thereafter and moved the escape window to the rear. (Also fire code-wise, which requires a second egress "distant" from the first.)

Side note on the subject of attempted-compliance-but-badly placed: The brand-new Lil Snoozy's "escape" window is over the kitchen counter, and only inches from the door! Don't know how that got past inspectors...The effect is that there's really only one way out of that trailer, and it sorta makes my blood run cold to think that folks might attempt to retrofit a gas stove or something into that counter....
