Trillium 1300 in the mitten.

Hi I've been a member on here for a year or so when I was searching for a new trailer project. I found a 1978 Trillium 1300 that needed a lot of just about everything. I put a years worth of weekends into it and now we are going to take it on its maiden voyage.

Looks beautiful Matt!

I like the upper, wrap around shelving. I intend to eventually do something like that with mine.

I am impressed with the amount you got done in a year. It has taken me lots longer, and, I am just getting on the road now. And, mine doesn't look as good as yours!

Thanks! The shelves are stock on a Trillium. I have done a lot of work to this bad boy for sure. We are taking it to the upper peninsula in Michigan this weekend for it maiden voyage. More pictures are coming.

We just returned from the UP. Went to Fayette Historical SP, Copper Harbor and Tahquamenon Falls. Beautiful weather and little traffic. Enjoy your maiden voyage and let us know how it went!

Hi Matt just a hint for you . If you add a bungie in your guy ropes then hook that on your pegs the canopy will stay up better when it's windy. They will stretch and take the strain and allow the tie downs to return to their original tension.
Enjoy your new trailer and happy camping ! Nice work you did as well ! Duane

Nice job - we have the upper shelving as well and love it. I really like what you have conjured up for an awning - please tell me how you attach yours to your trailer? Right now we take an umbrella with stand and prop it to the side of our door. Works well, but would really like to have a larger shelter.

Nice job, Matt! Very clean looking. If you haven't taken the Pictured Rocks cruise yet, I suggest you try that. Have a blast, and keep us posted.
