Hi Bernard, welcome to the forum and best wishes on your Egg-Hunt.

when cari & i were shopping...
In top handful of _must haves_ was vent-at-top/jalousie windows due to our wet weather. I believe most of the Trillium's had (& still have) the jalousie windows. If you camp in inclement weather you might shift this feature up toward the top of any "List" while shopping.

I know there are after-market mods for windows to allow for open-during-rain times...but none are quite as simple and elegant as a nice jalousie window treatment.

Thom

Not sure. It does appear to have the same logo front and rear below the windows. Can you zoom in on your original pictures?

sure looks like a ventura!
never heard that name before.

i usually like the rounded shape of the bolers, uhaul and older trillium but i'm open to anything in good shape that will serve my needs

i'm trying to get an appointement to go see it.

alright, another question for the boler owners
thats another trailer about 2h drives from here.

looks at this pic, see the bottom of the door how it does not fit tight?
is this repairable without replacing the door?


i know i'm asking lots if questions, these are what i can fin so far for a good price. there are some nicer trailer but a bit out of my price range . your answers help me choose where i will drive first to go see(most of them are more than 1h drive from my place)

It looks like typical "body bulge" on a boler. Could be the frame, floor or be fixed with a screen door mod. If you are lucky, just the hinges. I'd be more suspect of the axle needing replacement, looks to be riding a few inches low.

Few general questions.:

At first sight they look similar and have similar layout with some small differences.


Are there any reasons why i should choose onebrand over the other?

Any weaker/stronger point that would make one brand more attractive compared to the other?

What are your preference and why?

Any point i need to check specifically when buying?

Thanks
well i did it!

we bought a Uhaul
i've started a thread about it here.:

I did it! 87 uhaul ct-13
