SOLD: '78 Trillium 1300 $7200

Since we have acquired another to spend my time and $ on it is time to let this one go. We picked her up a couple of years ago and the PO had installed a new axel, 2" coupler and new upholstery. Except for those items she was in need of some love. I have completely rewired and installed a power center and battery with 12 volt and 120 volt outlets and all new 12 volt LED lights, water pump and water heater. Also put in a new counter, ss backsplash, sink,cook top, outside shower, marmoleum floor coverings, hinges, cabinets and repainted the old girl. I had a professional plumber do the water lines with pex, including a water heater bypass and all new propane lines. Comes with an awning and front rock guard and porta potty. Does not have a refrigerator or furnace. I feel comfortable saying this old trailer is as good as new, maybe better. If you want more pics look at " Another Reborn Trillium" on this site.If you are interested send me a PM and we can get together and I can answer any questions you might have

I forgot to mention that I have pulled and resealed all the windows and replaced the roof vent and that last fall we put $400 worth of new foam in the cushions. another pic or two.

Interesting...it looks like the escape window's up front under the gravel guard. I thought they'd quit doing that by 1978, when codes changed requiring that it be some distance from the door. Is there another one in the back?

Also:
Did you remove the fridge and furnace and if so, do you still have them?

Thanks!

Francesca

Given the size of these trailers, can somebody explain to me why an escape window is required? Is it in case a tree falls on the door? I'm trying to imagine what could ever require me to use mine.

RV fire safety 101:

There have to be two separated means of egress in case one is blocked by fire.

As a matter of fact, homes require a minumum of two exits for the same reason.

Escape hatch was in the front as you see it. When I had the windows out it would have made sense to put it in the rear-hindsight! When I got the trailer there were nothing but vacant cavities where the frige, and furnace and electric panel had been.

Understood, but in a 13' trailer, I would think it's a matter of inches which exit to use.

This is especially true when it is in the front. It ends up on the same side as the door. When it is on the back, it is on the opposite side from the door.

As it should be..."secondary egress" escape hatches are supposed to be significantly separate from the regular entrance. And since the kitchen area is the most common place where fires start, having that exit in the back of even the smallest trailer will prevent the necessity to pass through such a fire should one erupt.

It's worth noting that while such requirements are actually codified for permanent structures via building codes, there's no such enforcement mechanism for RV's. There are even some current production trailer brands that don't follow this guideline. Compliance with such "rules" seems to be purely voluntary, unless one's seeking certification from membership orgs. such as the RVIA.

Per this particular trailer:

I don't mean to point this out as a "defect", as it would be very simple to switch the windows. (Exact match with rear, sizewise)

At least the right window is there, unlike on some earlier Trilliums!

I have a question for you. I have attached a photo of the escape hatch in the ParkLiner we just sold. It is in the kitchen area centered over the aisle, directly in front of and above the stove, in the 6'5" tall ceiling. How would one actually escape using this hatch?

I certainly did my share of adding to the "off topic" issue. However, this seems to be quite common on most threads I have read. Perhaps we need a new thread about escape hatches.

I totally agree- and since this subject interests me a lot, I went ahead and started one! Link: Escape hatch locations?
