Gut it? Then get the Surfside
. The entire interior on the Trillium
is fiberglassed in, to the outer shell, to other cabinets and to the floor. Removing stuff would be quite difficult.
rivets their cabinets into place, making them easier to remove.
On a full gut, the Trillium
1300 and 4500s would be my last choices. Hunter Compact, Scamp
, Amergo, etc. are better gut candidates. Think wood interior (not just cabinet doors, but the entire cabinets).
Scamps are probably the most plentiful, so I would look for one of them, even though the cabinets are fiberglass on the standard model. How do you plan to support the shell and the roof? The cabinets, closet, benches, kitchen, etc., inside a fiberglass trailer are critical to the structure. The outer fiberglass shell is actually on the flimsy side. Think a bowl of jello going down the road (if the interior support is removed). Read one of the threads on roof collapse. Typically its snow load on top of the trailer.
Want a long bed? The Hunter Compact would be an interesting choice. Bed already runs lengthwise, rather than side to side like most FG trailers.
Trilliums also tend to sell for a premium, making it an expensive project. There was someone selling just the shell of a Scamp
, cheap as I recall. Scamps tend to be lighter in weight
