The serial number does not tell the year, but that is why I started the serial number thread, referred to earlier.
The shelves I refer to are the ones close to the ceiling, not all Trilliums have them.
is an easy change.
I have seen several Trilliums, both 1300's and 4500's with the escape
hatch on the front. I can't explain it.
If you post close up pictures of the handle, I will try to advise you on how to get rid of it.
I am obsessed with Trilliums. Typically these obsessions last about three years with me. I am in the third year now. I suspect this one will last a bit longer. I hope to have 3D CAD drawings done of both the 1300 and 4500 models before it is over. The repair of my collapsed 1300 has got me started on the fibreglass of the 1300. Not exactly easy with all those compound curves. I have other parts drawn already. The last obsession was video games, you should see my collection of 700, or so, PS2 and PS3 games. My 5 kids have yet to play more then 1/3 of them.
