new (to us) Trillium

Good Afternoon everyone,
We just picked up a 4500 & dragged it home yesterday.
This one is going to take some work, not sure if it will be ready for the boler 50th.

Nice! A bit of work and it will shine up nice. First make sure it is fully road worthy, then with about other thing and you will be able to take it on the road. There will be a ton of great ideas for modifications at the boler 50th.

Thanks Jim, yes for sure, tires and brakes first, axle and wiring inspection.
It needs new marker & tail lights, then the cleanup begins.

Looks like a 1978 Trillium 4500, (Deluxe?). What work needs to be done? Any interior photos? Is that your 1300 in the pictures? Oh I am just full of questions.

David, Yes it is a '78 4500, not sure about the deluxe part.
You had originally posted this unit as a sale on kijiji.ca on June 7, we drove to Alberta to pick it up,
The list of repair / replacement stuff continues to grow, originally it was tires and brakes were dragging all the way home, the 2 marker lights on the right side work periodically, small holes in the fiberglass all around. Under the side benches the fiberglass appears to be deteriorated and the plywood is rotten beyond being plywood. The awning rail is pulled up from the trailer (not sure how to fix this one yet). But very happy to find one and upgrade to the options in this unit.
Yes that is our 1300 in the pictures.
