Is the box on the back on a hitch receiver?

I gotta ask though, what is in the little door under the furnace? I have only ever seen pictures of that, I have not been in a trailer with one.
Sorry for the delay. Yes the ABS plastic tool box is on a receiver hitch
The little door accesses a breaker for the 110V wiring.

My 75 Trillium has a cutlery tray there, is that what yours is? Not sure if you can still get the Jalousie windows, may have to hunt for those.

Sorry for the delay. The white thing houses a cutlery tray.
I see some have a solid window like mlne and some have dual jalousies. I guess the duals are factory.
I think I'll be looking for a modern style replacement. Easier to find and cheaper.

That is a cutlery tray
I have seen photos of other 1300's with a solid rear window on the left and jalousie's on the right. I assume the jalousie's are factory.
I think I will replace it with a modern slider window. They are cheaper and easier to find.
Thanks for the reply

No, the solid rear window is a fire escape. It doesn't have a screen, and the two latches on the side allow it to open so you can get out. There is, unfortunately, less ventilation that way. They did not have them on the earlier Trilliums. It seems kinda redundant on such a small trailer, but I am looking for one for my older 1300.

If you are looking to replace it, I want it. You may want to rethink that though. The jalousie style windows are valued for the fact that you can keep them open in the rain.

My dad has a place on Manitoulin island is that anywhere near you?

Manitoulin Island is the largest island in the world surrounded by fresh water. St. Joseph Island is the 2nd largest. We are located in the mouth of the St. Mary's River where it flows into Lake Huron from Lake Superior.
By the highway we are about120 miles from Manitoulin. By water only a few miles.
Whereabouts on Manitoulin does your Dad live?

Sandfield, on the largest lake on a fresh water island, Lake Manitou. He is fairly close to the South Baymouth ferry terminal. Looks like it is at the oppsite end of the island from you.

I just noticed on Google maps, accross the lake from him is a bay called Tilston's Bay. I guess we have some history there.

If you want to sell your escape hatch window, please let me know.
