I still don't know what it is. I bought it. Got caught up in the excitement of having a new egg. I think I am in over my head. It is stripped inside. I tried to be patient, but pounced on the first affordable one I could find. Ok. What is done is done. I need innards!
Is this the 1975 Trillium 13 ft, in your profile?
Because, I am fairly sure it is not a Trillium. I like the back window though.
So what do you have in mind for a floor plan?
With no front window, I would be inclined to do a front bath and shower. Same as a 13' front bath Scamp.
Has plates, but no title. All I will do is plan until the results of that come back. I guess bonded title? The guy I bought it from was going to make a hotdog cart out of it, but changed his mind. Mustard yellow and hot dog red/brown....heh heh.
For me it would be a front bath, a queen sized bed at the cost of a smaller closet and kitchen.
How big is it? The shell looks comparable to my 4500's. They are 10' long and ever so slightly more then 6' wide.
It seems to have what I refer to as pontoons. I mean gutters on the sides that give it a place for leaks to collect and not wreck any wood flooring. They would make a good place for a drain for your shower if you use a hepvo valve and a pump. Hepvo Waterless Valve
I have given some thought to putting a front bath on a 4500. That was the original reason that I have two of them. The design that I have in mind would be a bulkhead across the front. It would be just far enough forward that it does not interfear with the operation of the door on the trailer. I would make it from 1/2" of foam sandwiched between two FRP, (fibreglass reinforced panel) sheets, that is used for bathroom liners. 0.10" thick and perfectly flat. I would also take out the front window and glass over the hole. Probably put a small port hole in for ventilation.
Sorry to hear about the Trillium. My first three kids are from my first marriage. I understand the pain and loss of divorce. With time, this trailer may be even better then the Trillium, (that hurt to type).
I don't think it would be hard to fiberglass in wood to attach the bulkheads and galley in place...the walls look pretty straight. The bed frame could be free standing. Look online at rebuilding fiberglass boat interiors for ideas.
Kristi, take a deep breath! This can be a wonderful oppurtunity for you. If you look at the albums in my profile, my lil red vardo I built, which is now officially gone, my ParkLiner can come home next weekend! YAY! Now the lil red vardo is the 2nd trailer I built. Prior to the first, I never built anything...zero...squat. I spent alot of time reading about what people did, and am also on a very limited budget, and did it slowly.
The most important thing is makeing it legal and safe to tow. If the axle is good, or even if it needs to be replaced as long as its towable, you can use an air mattress and a cooler and a porta pottie in the begining. Then slowly tackle one project at a time...there is no better feeling then getting complimented that you did a great job. Most things are not really as complicated as they seem once you read about them and how it was done. Don't sell yourself short...confidence! (this is probably why the principal at my school calls me Mr Rogers lol) Take lots of pictures and ask lots of questions. There is a wealth of knowledge on the internet and just think how awesome it will be when you make it customized just for you! I almost went this route, but the place I would have rebuilt a camper at was kinda destroyed in Hurracaine Sandy, and my mom gave me grief about me and my "projects" I just got real lucky with getting my ParkLiner.... but still have a dozen projects to do on it and its a 2012 lol.
What do you want for it? Where in Arizona? Are you close to Vegas?
I've been gathering stuff for my 19' and have changed my mind so many times I have double and triple for most everything. Plus I just pulled the benches out yesterday and am pulling the base cabinets out today. I have two new convertors because I decided to go with the PD4045 instead of the PD9060. 3 sinks, 2 fridges 1 DC and 1 propane, 3 styles of flooring, 2 stove tops, etc, etc. It is a sickness I tell ya!
Thank Deryk. Deep breath taken. I really don't need much. I can bring an icebox and a bbq for a while. I have a portable AC.
I felt overwhelmed when I found my own personal water reservoirs inside. I am siphoning and using a coffee can to bail out the water now. Something was mounted on the back and drilled holes were left unplugged. Windows are not sealed. There is lumpy discolored insulation all around.
Steve, I would probably sell if offered enough, but with the problems I am mentioning here, I doubt I would get it. Are you selling your extras? I am in Tucson. Let me know.
