Thanks Doug for the feedback.
The Outback I'm purchasing is fom a fellow in Nova Scotia. Although it's a 2004, it has never been on the road. I called Joe at Trillium in Calgary three or four times for info and although there wasn't any money in it for him, he took his time and answered all my questions. He spent half an hour on the phone with me going over the manufacturing process. I was impressed and thankful for the assistance he provided. It's reassuring to know that the manufacturer believes in and will stand behind his product.
The Outbacks have a window that can be popped open as an emergency exit. This may be a safety requirement for manufacturers. There's a lip above that window that looks like it can trap water. I'll seal that with some silicone. Otherwise, I don't see where water leaks
may be any more of a problem than in my '72 Trillium, but time will tell. I tried out the furnance. It's rated for 12000 BTU. It appeared to be giving off lots of heat. But again, time will tell if that's going to be sufficient. There was frost on my windows
this morning. I'm thinking of treating the interior with Scotch Guard.
My '72 Trillium is 1100 lbs and the Outback is 1400 lbs. It looks that that extra 300 lbs is mostly in the frame. I don't like the idea of towing an extra 300 lbs but I do like the looks of the frame. I'm picking up the Outback today, about a 200 Km trip. I'll get to see how it tows.
Well, again thnks for the advice. I do believe that if you ask a seller questions when buying a trailer that they'll be honest with you...it's just knowing what questions to ask.
