The Ensolite looks like it is in good shape.
No problem user mods.
Kinda hard to see how the front seat converts to a bunk. There is no back rest.
Windows on the door, and the kitchen are not factory.
The furnace is not factory.
The cushions for the dinette don't match what is left of the gaucho.
No pot supports on the stove, and no clips to hold them.

I'd like to see more exterior pics- four sides would be nice.

Is that some kind of rack on the back of the trailer? And what is meant by "invertor" (sic)? Are we talkin' 110vto 12v inversion, or a converter for running interior 12v off shorepower?

Also:

I see black/red wires at the base of the "icebox"- what's the story there? Is it in fact a three-way fridge (propane/12v/110v)?

Thanks!

Francesca

Don't think it is a 3-way fridge. There is no vent on the outside!

Don't know what the mystery wires are, maybe a connection for 12V?

Good call- I hadn't noticed the lack of a fridge vent. I guess my attention was arrested by the Trillium Logo on the streetside- was that standard on this model year????

I think that Logo is part of the mold. On my '78 the logo is there, but, partially cut out for the fridge vent and the remainder is hidden by the fridge vent grill.

On my Cantaloupe I have a street side logo. Any Trillium that was sold with an ice box has it.

Now that is interesting...do you think this one has an ice box only, and if so, what do you think the black and red wires are for at the bottom right of the fridge(?) in this picture???

The white, plastic looking frame is typical of an ice box. The wires..... well... they look like they come out from under the cushion, and just below the ice box do a loop, but I don't think that they go into the ice box. They look to be exiting the bottom of the picture. I am making this assessment from about 25 pixels. In other words, I am guessing.

Maybe the wires go to the cushion, which vibrates like motel beds used to do - do you see a slot for a quarter anywhere?

Asked Jim some of your questions.
“Kinda hard to see how the front seat converts to a bunk. There is no back rest.”

“It doesn’t convert into a bunk” this is my mistake….(gary)


Windows on the door, and the kitchen are not factory.”
As far as I know they are


“The furnace is not factory.”
As far as I know they are

“The cushions for the dinette don't match what is left of the gaucho.”
“yes they do all the cushions were recovered”


“No pot supports on the stove, and no clips to hold them.”
true

I'd like to see more exterior pics- four sides would be nice.
Send me a pm on this board and I will get them for you if you are interested. (gary)

“Is that some kind of rack on the back of the trailer? And what is meant by "invertor" (sic)? Are we talkin' 110vto 12v inversion, or a converter for running interior 12v off shorepower?”

no rack, inverter 110 to 12


“I see black/red wires at the base of the "icebox"- what's the story there? Is it in fact a three-way fridge (propane/12v/110v)?”
no, those are inverter wires

please send me a pm with any other questions(garyu)

FYI as to terms:

An "inverter" is the opposite to what the description inducates the trailer has- if it converts 110v to 12v, it's a converter. An important distinction, as some trailers do have inverters, which changes 12v to 110.

Per the fridge:
Is it an "icebox" which uses ice for cooling rather than an external power source?

Thanks!

Francesca
