Hello all

I just bought my first two Trilliums this winter. I got one in Grande Prairie, Alberta and the other from Winnipeg.
I will be renting these two units out this summer from Vernon BC.
Ill be looking for advice and ideas on restoring these fun little trailers.
First order of business is replacing the fridge in my 74. The RM24 Dometic model is no longer available and the replacement unit RM 2193 is a bit deeper than the original. Does this unit fit without any major modifications?
Also looking at upgrading the tires to a aluminum rim. Is the wheel well big enough for a 15" tire?
Thanks.

I replaced mine in the Boler with a Norco Fridge and it aslo was a bit deeper just about 1 1/2 inches.
It wasn't much of a job to build out around the fridge with square stock, I stripped out of 2X4 on table saw, Screwed into place from inside fridge cavity. Making sure it all fit. I then covered this wood with glue on RFB or what they have at Home Depot, for paneling that's waterproof, for ease of cleaning, complete with the plastic corners.
Took a day to do but came out real nice.
If you have any building in your backround you should do OK

Fridge

Once I get at it Im hoping the extra depth will be absorbed on the inside and there will be minimal build out on the outside.
My fall project will be repairing stress cracks and all the holes drilled along the back splash that held various items over the year.
Does a person just tape and paper over the ensolite when painting the inside of one of these trailers? I cant imagine it would go back on if you took it off.
