There are many threads which touch on what your asking about. A recent one, started 4-25-2020 was titled “Trillium Gaucho mystery??” You should be able to look it up. I'd share a link, but I’ve not quite figured that out yet.
In that thread, I enjoyed sharing my “not fancy” changeover from front bunk/goucho to small dinette, in a ‘79 Trillium 4500. There are many variations and customizations possible, but as you mentioned, the less ”structural” change, the better. My model year trailer allowed me to do it without requiring fiberglass work, or having to add any holes to the trailer interior, and still maintain flexibility to change the layout back. There are a few pics of the unfinished project.
Others also shared some ideas, and some quotes and references to interior layouts were shared.
Definitely check out what others have posted on FGRV about conversions and structural changes. There are many varied approaches and opinions on the forums, and being informed will allow you to weigh the viability of what’s offered.
Best of luck with your trailer!
