Trailer: 1976 Trillium 13 ft

It's been a long time

Hallo

It's been over a year since I last posted a message so just wanted to say Hi!. We didn't get many days in the Trillium last year as we were doing a serious renovation on our new-to-us house.

I managed to find a beautiful Trillium 4500 at the end of last summer - the difference in the bunk and bed size is substantial! Our plan last year was to drive down through Washington / Oregon and Northern California but it got put off due to work until this spring.

After a lot of discussion we have decided we will be selling our 1976 13' Trillium (Hazel) - it's too much work to winterize and maintain 2 trailers over a BC winter. I built an overhang off my shop but it can only 1 trailer.

Anyway, since I am starting from scratch with the 4500 I will be posting all the updates as I go along - hopefully everyone will find it as useful as other posts I have done. Still trying to figure a name for her

Cheers,
Booker

Hi Donna,

Not yet, it's still tucked away in the over hang - we are working on getting our 13' all tidied up for sale.

I had been looking for a 4500 for the past 2 years but they are scarce in BC, I have only seen a few of them this side of the Rockies. My wife was talking to another parent at our son' school and mentioned the trips we had done with our Trillium - by happen chance her dad had a 4500 and was planning on selling it after the summer and would be willing to hold it for us.

I paid what he asked for as it was very reasonable. I had not realized that trailers had increased so much in value over the past few years until I starting doing price searches today - turns out he gave me an incredible deal. All it really needs is new tires and an awning.
