Since decideding a fiberglass travel trailer is the way to go for us, and not finding one available within the 4 or 5 states surrounding Colorado, at least not what I want. Today on my way home, I drove by a home that I had spotted a older fiberglass travel trailer out in the back 40............ Well I jumped out of the car and just walked up and asked if they wanted to sell it. His reply was, Well, I have been thinking about it. I asked if it was a fiber stream and he was like well yeah, he didn't think a women would know her trailer brand..................... I just laughed, becuase 3 months ago I wouldn't have know a fiber stream. But after hanging around here I at least know what they look like. Couldn't get inside to look at it, cause the key is in his truck and his wife had driven it to work. He did tell me that the inside was pretty bad, so I think it probabaly won't work for us, but it gave me the gut's to jump out and hit every darn home I find with a fiberglass anything in the backyard.

I handed him my card and told him to think about it some more and call me if he decides to sell. Cause even if it's not for us, I can post it on the referrals............ But watch out anyone who live's in Colorado and owns a fiberglass travel trailer........................ I may come knocking! Robin

Get yourself a key that opens pickup truck toppers, usually the same key for RVs.

Well, heck I have a couple of those on my key ring. Oh well, he will call if he decides to sell. And though I am brave enough to go cold call/begging them to sell me their trailer, I can tell you I would never be brave enough to use the key. LOL Robin

If you are brave enough to walk up and ask someone if they will sell their trailer, are you sure you aren't brave enough to tackle renovation?

Yeah, I agree with Cindy. Just think of it: you could rehabilitate another Fiber Stream! (Those are such cool trailers...)

Yeah I am brave enough to tackle any re-hab, re-model but due to Dh's health issues. Taking on a project at this point, doesn't make sense. So I am going to look for road ready for now. Hopefully I will run across just the right one. Robin

I knocked on quite a few doors asking about semi-abandoned trailers. Nobody was outright rude but a few were a little abrupt. One woman was prepared to sell me her Boler after she cleaned it up.

However, I ended up meeting one couple who weren't selling but gave me the full tour of their Trillium and discussed all the positive and negatives, probably spent an hour with them. I learned a ton and that's what made me decide on a Trillium.

Booker, the only thing I worry about is the dog chasing me from the door .




Yep Donna, I have the list in my purse ready to go. Watch out if you live here in Colorado and own a fiberglass, cause it just might be your door I knock on. Robin

I got my first Trillium by making a cold call. I drove by it for a couple of months and finally decided to stop. I had to move fast because the guy had said that he had backed out once before. I have since added a U-haul that my friend had bought and changed his mind on. I now am being stalked as well. I have had 3 people ask me about my trailers last week alone. I am seriously looking at a brand new one because I've yet to get mine fixed up. Ellie is talking even more about not camping because of the condition of the trailer.
