Mike, you are clearly collecting across the various fibreglass types. You have a Boler, a Trillium, and a Buro, the three major groups. I am impressed.

I'm guessing the roof caved due to snow load. Am I correct? That's enough of a project but a floor as well. There are several threads that talk about replacing a Trillium floor but no one has posted a how to that I can find. Because the " furniture" is all glassed in, complete removal to properly replace the plywood is major surgery for sure. This is where the rivieted trailers are at an advantage. Still, Weren't you looking for a new project? Raz

I think the "project" will be one of dissection. I plan to prop up the roof with jacks, or something, then I will try to remove all the furniture. I intend to do this in a reversible way. I don't plan to repair the trailer, but I would like to come up with a way to replace the plywood in the floor of a Trillium.

I am starting to think of this as a science experiment.

My brother tells me that an ozone generator will help with the smell and mold.

We use an ozonator many times. It truly does help.

Cleaned it up

I got my 19 year old to help me wash the trailer.
The more I look at it, the more I think I can save it. It now smells more like bleach, then mold. If there is any rot in the floor, my jumping by the kitchen should have caused more flexing. It feels solid.

This week, I plan to try to push the roof back up.

Dave, I feel your pain...But, I bet you can save it if anyone can. I am trying to learn working with fiberglassing now and am a wimpet. Fiberglass is so strong and I think you are also. I will watch for your decision and progress attentively. Good Luck.

Maybe.....just maybe.

A couple of wood supports, and it's a Trillium again!

OK, I have decided. I am going to fix it.

David,

It's so cool that you are able to do this kind of thing. The poor little thing was dead and now has a chance to live again.

What jolly fun! NOT!! Too bad you can't find a good upper and bad lower for your bad upper and good lower. Maybe you will? Soon you'll have them all, eh?
