    Hi John,
    I messaged you earlier about searching for a Trillium. I bought one for $9,000 CAN.
    The outside shell is good. I plan to first pull the windows and seal them with Butyle tape, and pull the belly band, pull out the metal plates, and fill the gap with bondo which includes the short fibered glass in it. I think I should do the fan too.

    The floor has significant rot under it.

    I was wondering if you'd be available to answer a ton of questions as I get started on the restoration. I really didn't want to deal with a really bad floor, but it is what it is, and I just have to get to it now. Hope you can help?
    Thanks
    Dino

    Do you know anyone that has a 13 foot camper? I would like to step inside and get the feel of it. Show the wife too.

    Hi John,

    I recently posted about members in SE Michigan. I live in Dearborn.

    I just missed buying a Compact II on Saturday. Still looking though.

    Ours only says 1700 on ownership, but came with many options. Took almost 3 years of looking to find an original 4 burner magic chef oven replacement ours was beat up and poorly painted. We got one out of a 1977 Earton boler when it was scraped out of the trailer.
    We have wet bath with new replacement taps and shower head, The 22" stove replacement is an exact match one year older slipped right in, hot water tank new 4 gallon, new replacement furnace, new sink taps, Awning replaced roller and cloth but still have original arms, replace both power cap vents with same size, new pins in main door hinges, all new pluming pipes plastic instead of copper, new cabinet hinges, most interior lights new but vintage looking and more. We have had over 10 years of searching out parts to restore the egg.

    Our front window unit is the same as your side window. The top seal we will try to use is close but think it will work, the middle and up sides of center section is exact but we can not find the bottom seal. What did you use for it and where did you get it.
    Thanks

    Did you have to change the seals on your side window? We have the same window on the front.

    It is unfortunate they changed the frunace design as it worked so well and uses only 0.5amps

    Hi my message may have not posted to you so here is the furnace data;
    MPD Atwood 80 series 8012-11 it has a very low current needs saving battery power for when shore power not available and the profile worked in the original location on our boler. The furnace sits on a small platform and required a intake and exhaust extension from Atwood original space meets all its clearance needs. The front vent is a little smaller than the original face.
    We just move the thermostat to the temp wanted and it starts works great.
