Hi everyone I'm new but have been visiting often A LOT the past few days to get all the info I can on these little gems. PLZ don't kill me as I'm not modifying my trailer to camp out of, more to work out of. I found a 74 trillium
for $2K and I'm driving 5 hours to take a look at it tomorrow PICS:
Any opinions welcomed here. I notice a lot of the trim is missing in the seam, is this fixable? Also on interior pic on ceiling where trim is I see a small lighter area is this light
coming through a seam if so is this fixable? Is this a decent price or should I consider a lower offer? It's on an RV dealer lot.
I'm not concerned about the inside as I will be ripping most of it out anyways to re build it to suit my needs. I'm converting it to a mobile grooming salon. Most everything will be ripped out I will be adding a large tub. A grooming table where the table is etc. Being in TX A/C is a necessity. I saw where someone added a slide out "drawer" for window unit.. INGENIUS!!! I Love that! How hard is it to install a rooftop mounted A/C on these? I will have to wire it to hook up to a generator
or shoreline (plug into clients houes) both actually to switch back and forth if the generator
craps out on me like it often does. Later I will be adding an inverter system. Any pointers on what to look for as far as flaws or potential costly problems to look for such as axles and frame?
I have done so much research lately on these types of campers I have fallen in love with them, wish I could get another just to camp out of but these won't work with 3 small kids at least not a 13' LOL
Here are pics of a '74 Trillium

Grooming Trailer after rehab
This was after $12K of rennovations. I'm hoping it doesn't run me that much.
Right now I'm using a van and it's been in service for over 10 yrs with over 120K miles on it. It's seen it's better days so I'm wanting to go with a trailer for more room. I'm loving these trailers as I'm hoping I can get away with pulling with a V6 mid size SUV vs having to buy a gas hog V8 full size pick up to tow a heavy cargo trailer instead.
Thank you and welcome any comments, opinions, ideas etc. I'm sure you will be seeing me a lot in the upcoming months if I get this trailer! LOL
