1978 Trillium 4500 $4000

I will be taking my 1978 Trillium to Windber Pennsylvania next week and will be there for 3 or 4 days. I took out the front bathroom and put in a dinette so I wouldnt have to keep making the bed.In fact I have a double mattress I put on top of the seat cushions of the rear bed so sleeping is just like sleeping at home. It is in good condition and has a new axle that is a year old with electric brakes. I had the tongue changed to 2". I sealed the belly band. I have not used the fridge or sink since I bought it. But the heater and stove work fine and I believe the sink and fridge do too. I am in Massachusetts and will be making the 10+ hour trip Wednesday night stopping at a Walmart along the way and getting to Windber Thursday morning. I will be leaving Windber Sunday sometime to return home. It may need some TLC that any new to you camper owner would do,but it is 100% roadworthy and ready to use right away if you want to go camping. If you want to look at it at Windber I will be done using it until Sunday and you can take it from there then. Or if you are along my trip from Massachusetts to Windber PA. I can drop it off on the way back. There is no title because we do not need them in Massachusetts for a trailer of this weight. It is registered and you will get a bill of sale. If you search my name and posts you can see plenty of pics. It shines with several coats of the Polyglow. Randy

I will try to get some pics tomorrow in the daylight of the interior. It has new curtains and the cushion covers under the matress I had made of dark blue durable denin with vinyl on the bottom like the originals. The dinette I made for the front has some thrown together cushions but they work. Like I said it will need some TLC by the new owner to make it their own. Randy

Here are some pics of the inside. As you can see it does need some work. But again. It is roadworthy and very comfortable. I am going to start packing it up today for my trip this week. It also has a canopy that attaches to the canopy rail on the door side. The L-400 lock works great and also comes with a rebuild kit that I bought because I know these had an issue.

Sir,

I have a trailer that requires work. This unit is beautiful! I think that at $4000 dollars, the future owner is getting a steal!

I think your front dinette is nicely done.

How difficult do you think it would be to rebuild the bathroom?
If you still have the Trillium after your Pa. trip I would like to talk to you.
Regards,
Pamela

Pamela,

In my OPINION, The orignal bathroom in the 70's vintage 4500's was a waste of space. A flimsy bi fold door, no shower, and too big. The new 4500 from Trillium RV has a much better plan, once again, my opinion.
To retro fit such a bathroom on a 4500, (which I plan to do to one of my 4500's) would be quite a bit of work. I plan to glass over the front window and put on a small port hole. I will probably also remove the flat spot that the window sits in. I will follow the rounded curve of the front of the trailer. This way showers would be more private, and slightly more roomy. I am not sure if I will put in a sink, since one is in the kitchen, just outside the door. I will leave room for a good sized cupboard by the front door.

This trailer is good with the front dinette. You can leave the bed as a bed and still have someplace to eat. Good for a couple. I really like how Randy did not drill any holes in the shell to mount the table. Instead he ran a support on the wall, up from the floor. Just like how the factory does it.
