Hi Everyone, hi Pau!
"Maybe was a licenced design that Taylor bought from Trillium?"
it's possible, in early time ( 1978 )Ebro was a licenced of Jeep, and the Ebro Bravo in spain was the same Jeep wrangler in usa. I don't thing if you understand me... The same for RV...
Samuel, I didn't know Ebro had licenced Jeep for cars, nice to know! It's possible then that Taylor did licence to trillium. The trillium have also on the door a relieve motiv, but in the taylor case this motiv is an anchor form I suppose because their original field was boats. ;-)

Brian, you have nice photos on your casita blog also!! I can see you are a professional photographer. Nice images!
It's cool to see a combo of trailer and vehicle like yours, it makes it very solid!

to you too Pau! How fun to have you both join us...........

Fabulous slideshow! Thanks for posting it. Beautiful country your from.

Trailers require their own license plates for the most part, I say "most part" cause some states don't require older little travel trailer to be licensed but that's rare.

I am not sure about other States but know that here in Colorado some of the letter's do represent the county for which it was licensed. But other than that it's just random. Hopefully others will be able to explain how it works from their state. Again, Welcome and Thanks for the pictures!

Samuel and Pau, you both have said you like seeing different Fiberglass trailers, I wasn't sure if you had run across this post here on fiberglassrv of fiberglass trailers that their owners have painted. It's a long post ( cause it is years of collections of pic's posted of painted glass) Enjoy!

John, nice find! :-D
In spain the smaller trailers (less than 750 kg of weight) have to show the licence plate of the car towing them, and as I had two cars I had to change the licence plate on the trailer. The bigger trailers have it's own licence number and they have to show both plates, their own and the towing vehicle plate. How is it in US?

Yes, the letters are from the province the car is buy'd, and yes, B from Barcelons (my home town) and M for Madrid where I'm actually living. ;-) Four or five years ago they changed the way the licence numbers where given, doing a national numbering to all of them, so now you can't say where the car is from by the license plate.
How do you know so much about spain's licensing letters?

Thanks for your kind words about the photographs! :-D
Here, each trailer has it's own separate license plate, issued by the state (or province in Canada) where the owner lives.

I once lived in Spain for 2 1/2 years and loved it and have returned from time to time. I went back in 2005 and walked the Camino de Santiago, from France, over the Pyrennees, down into the valley of Pomplona, then turned gently to the west and walked along The Camino over the mountain ranges of northern Spain, stopping briefly at Santiago de Compostela, and then continued on to Finisterre at the Atlantic Ocean, the 'end of the known world' until Cristobal Colon. What a life-altering experience that trip was- almost 1000 km, or 600 miles and beneath every pebble I trod upon lay over a thousand years of history beneath it. You have a beautiful country, rich in history. I liked walking the Camino Frances so much, a couple of years later I returned and walked the Via de la Plata from Sevilla northward to Santiago but I was stopped by the cold and heavy snows in the mountains in December. Y, mientras el ano que viene es un ano Jacobeo, el ultimo hasta 2021, pienso andar, una vez mas, El Camino Frances, empezando en octubre!

Hi everybody, thanks a lot for your welcome and kind comments for the photos. :-D
Gerda, where are you from? Your name sound to the north of europe, german maybe?
Robin, that's interesting, I once though of painting my taylor pradera but I thought it was lots of money.
I'll attach some ideas we had and the design a friend of mine did for our taylor ... :-D
I'll check patiently all the topic you point at ... it promises long time enjoying colorful campers!!
John, it sounds great all the camino de santiago experience, some friends of mine did it also and told me the same, of it being a very profound experience ... And as Samuel say, la vía de la plata is a looooooong path ...

Hi Pau,

indeed I am from Germany. I grew up near the North Sea coast in the north western part.

Wow, the paint designs look wonderful. I only can imagine the laborious looking one would come pricey...
