For more information, read this topic: Outback vs Trillium. Especially the posting by Carl O., he has some interesting information from Tom Young... who also is a member of this forum: Tom Young Profile

You'll find Tom's topic where he is asking for information here: Trillium Owners near San Francisco, Looking for Owners of 1300 or 4500

In his post Tom says:
Quote:
The Outback & Trillium trailers will be different, [b]but share the same body. We are entering into a joint marketing/manufacturing agreement.
Now is everyone totally confused

He happened to find out about the Canadian company.
If I were about to manufacture a trailer, I think I would make a point of "finding out" about the competition... especially when there are only a handful of companies, and one is building the same product. How serious is this new business?

I got no information that the first units made in California will be made by the company in Canada; they will be made from the original Trillium molds as I said.
That information was directly from the Trillium RV (California) web site. They said the first units would be made (presumably moulded) in Calgary and finished in California. Changing plans and miscommunication, perhaps? I suspect that Trillium RV either doesn't really have a set of moulds, or they just can't use them yet because their factory is not ready, and getting unfinished shells from Calgary was (and maybe is no longer) the solution.

There were some questions on other forums as to whether the Canadian company is still in business.
As of a few weeks ago, Outback trailers were in stock in the Edmonton area dealerships and members of a different forum were discussing the level of service from this company. I suspect that they're still around, but not good at answering e-mail - we know that they have not been updating their web site, while at the same time making lots of trailers.

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

... and the answer has recently been posted in a related thread. They're alive and have just moved their facility.

(Just information for those not following the other thread and still interested in the Outback)

I read the other post. I'm glad to hear that the Outback is still being manufactured. I would be tempted to get one; however, Canada is a lot further away from me than Sacramento, CA. As i said in an earlier post, of all the "egg" or "teardrop" lightweight trailers that I investigaged on the web, I liked the Outback best until I found the CA Trillium company. I am planning to get one, also as I said befoe, as soon as they are available and I hope it is soon.
