Registry
Trailer Name Kermit
Year 1976
Make Trillium
Model 1300
Length 13'
Packages One of only about 100 Trills manufactured with a head rather than bunks in forward end
History Purchased on EBay in 2005. Had been used & abused as a hunting camper & in need of tender loving care.
Interior
Replaced old dark carpet with Pergo oak flooring. Original carpet still in head closet and dinette area to remind of how ugly it was (plus is WAS the original)

Replacing contact paper-covered pressboard cabinet doors with old-growth redwood panels

Heater had been ripped out, so hole has been converted to utility/storage cupboards (power cable etc.), accessible from the outside as well as inside. Doors, instead of opening outward, are now oak tambour rollers, with redwood trim.

|Entry corner, where evidently a dog chain wore away all gelcoat down to raw fiberglass, was covered over with same oak tambour/redwood trim.

Original upholstery in dinette, new curtains

Exterior
No modifications to body other than exterior utility door & new door hinges

ORIGINAL 70s AVOCADO COLOR TO THE CORE

Other Information
AWNING: Kermit came with an awning rail but no awning. Current curved awning is an ON-GOING PROJECT to design one that does not require poles with guy-ropes. Current 'prototype' is a bed sheet & fiberglass tent rods, anchored in L-shaped PVC corners connected with a cord (the tension is OUTward). Last trip sandbags worked well to eliminate upward movement (wind lifts the curve). Photos coming soon

Tow Vehicle
2008 6cyl Toyota RAV4
