I've been perusing this excellent forum for weeks. I recently purchased a 1974 Trillium
1300. It requires some upgrades so that we can safetly and comfortably take a cruise down the Pacific Coast. Some photos in the Album.
I don't have time to carry out a full reno. This week I'll have Outback install electric brakes
, check the frame and bolt integrity and fix me up with a front rock shield and awning
rail. There is some cracking of the internal fg at the front end. All fixable, I'm sure. I'll likely tackle re-installing the windows
and fixing up the wavy trim and ensolite re-glue. There are numerous drill holes that require plugging. The furnace
requires a new pilot supply tube and the fridge
is a bit of a mystery. Ofcourse, essential to the comfort is new cushion covers and curtains! The Clerk of Works is pushing for new foam. The bottom bunk will become the bairn's cot area and top bunk will become a storage area.
A few questions; What is the purpose of the entry/exit hole to the left of the door? There is no hatch to close it off and it accesses difficult to reach space below the cupboard bottom. Maybe use this to bring in 110V.
Can I expect the fridge
(Dometic VT-24-1) to work?
Are lots of people still using their mid-70s Duotherm furnaces?
Still working on a 4-cyl TV; pondering an X-Trail that has 2,000lbs rating. The only Subarus I can afford have high mileage. Enjoy the pics, if you care to look. I'll update as progress is made. All very exciting.
