Trailer: 2005 13 ft Trillium Outback

Just got the February copy of Highways. On the bottom half of page 54 is a picture of a 13' fiberglass trailer with the caption, "Need something a little bigger?"

No, I don't need something bigger at this time.

They tried to anonymize the trailer, but I think the molding pattern identifies it as an early Trillium Outback.

I think I'm going to carry a grudge with rvSearch.com.

They are just jealous of the fact that you don't have to mortgage your house and grandkids to pay the gas bill to cross the country. Don't let them bother you, we know that if everyone experienced Eggs, they would want one also.

[b]YUP- -- On our first long trip with our Scamp a few years ago, Carrie and I were sitting in that beautiful rest area on I-5 on the CA-OR border having our morning coffee. A big class A was sitting there also. The man was out drinking his coffee and sorta looked at our set-up condensendingly (sp?) I sorta grinned and told the wench "we have less inour whole set-up than he has in his toad and you know what -our coffee is prob better, too!!" Life is a hoot Larry

I thought it was a stupid ad. The bigger the RV, the bigger the profit. Well worth the effort to sell one. The small, molded travel trailers don't need a lot of advertising to sell. They like to call us "entry level". Ha, Ha Ha!

I think I'm at a bit of a disadvantage here, since I haven't seen the magazine and would not even know exactly which one to look for at the store. Is this Highways Magazine, from the Good Sam Club? If so, the online version is for members only, and I assume the printed version only goes to members.

I used to drive an AMC Gremlin, and was familiar with the "where's the rest of your car" jokes. In that case, the car was just the cheapest thing one could get with wheels (and worth almost every penny...), but our deliberately small trailers are another matter entirely. Like most of us, I could buy a much bigger trailer, and no one is going to make me feel inferior because I didn't.

I think my Boler - like me - is old enough to have the maturity to let the insult roll right off.

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

The half-page ad is also in the February issue of Trailer Life, on page 84.

Hi: I think the reason the shoulders of our Boler were made round was to shed all the "Parade Precipitation" When I think of our initial investment and all the fun we have with it... I smile all the way to the bank machine

Good idea Kathie.

How about: Need: less monthly payments .... less housekeeping .... less gas bills and great fiberglass friends...
