We're the new owners of a 1973 Trillium
1300 (in Vancouver, BC), and I've read this and these threads (https://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/...ody-43598.html
) with great interest. In inspecting our rear storage areas, it seems as though the 4 original screws holding the body to the frame at the rear had snapped off (proof - the original heads - still there, years later). On one side it looks like they have been replaced (and still holding), but not on the other side. I also noted that at least 1 of the 2 front bolts holding the body to the frame are also extremely rusted, loose, and need replacing.
I'm not super handy but can certainly drill and screw/bolt things - but we have 2 very young kids and so I don't have much time these days. I'm wondering:
* Is it really is that simple to replace those rear screws / front bolts (front bolts seem much easier)?
* If so, for the rear, do people have better experience with U bolts, single bolts or new screws?
If not, I'll probably just take to our local RV shop (seems like others on here have had good experience with TravCo in Burnaby).
Thanks everyone for the plethora of information that exists here already, and for any more current advice on fixing these issues.
