Another 4500

I am a bad bad man.

I went to look at this trailer:
AB (Canada) - Trillium 1300 - 1974 - $1000

That got me half way to Edmonton. I had seen an ad on kijiji for a 4500 for $1550, so continued on to Edmonton. Where I was the first person to show up. I feel bad about talking him down even further.

Please take a look at the pictures of my new Trillium 4500. It is the oldest 4500 on the serial number list, (when I update the list).

I guess I will have to update my profile.

Way to go Dave!

I'm surprised anybody would have enough money left over to buy yet another trailer to add to their fleet, after your recent, very expensive, trip to Ontario.

The daughter that was stuck with the Cantloupe has already claimed it.

So, having seen the photos, I have to ask: why was it so cheap?

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

A motivated, poorly informed seller, most likely.

What GM taketh away, Trillium restores.

But Mike may have a point. The seller even threw in a shower / porta pottie tent, just like what we usually use.

Is Karma egging you on to change your order for covers and decals for the new addition?

Well Roy, the daughter who has claimed the new addition, wants to go with a science fiction theme. So probably no new stickers. Besides, did you notice the orange stripe? The same color as her twins trailer.

I did however, discover a defect in the trailer. I am sure it has nothing to do with the price, but more to do with the fact that it is the 36th 4500 ever built. Take a look at the picture. Also, the road side tire seems to be recessed by about one inch more then the curb side tire. Weird.
