The maiden voyage behind us and yes, there were lots of smiles. Seven months of hard labour but, (to us) it was worth it!
We would like to thank all of you on the forum. Special thanks to the ones who gave us direct advice and fed us ideas and special thanks to all who posted their ideas and experiences in all the treads all over the board. Reading these treads, including ones I never replied to) helped us a lot. It helped not just to deal with problems but, mostly to gave us strength to persevere despite many setbacks in the rebuilding process.
Thank You ALL!
I still have to make the closet doors and the dinette table cushions needs to be sown but the trailer is now officially usable!

Good job

Also, on mine, there was only one window on the left side - it was at the back. The front, narrow window looks original where on Jubilee, I see it as a fair size rectangle. Than again, the shell and the raised portion of the roof seem a close match. Ah, mine has two roof vents. Not sure about the Jubilee.
I saw this listed as a 1980 Trillium. Looks like a Jubilee - but those windows!

Wow! Where did you see it???? Any more pictures? It certainly looks like the window size that my shell had original cut-outs for yet; when I talked to the original owner of Trillium company (forgot his name) he was adamant that they never, ever made a Jubilee with such large windows!

Listed in Alberta.
Looks like no front window? Yours was the only other one I've seen with those size windows - which could have been a mod. Still a bit of a mystery.

The front window - looks like mine originally did not have one. Left over ribs are exactly like the ones in the photo you posted.
Another thing; a "proper" Jubilee used to have a tank under the raised floor in the rear centre. Front to back, inside there was a step and access to valve(s) was through a hinged cover at the front of that step. Mine had raised floor in the rear and a lowered molded section in the bottom, rear of the shell but there was no sign of any tank. There was a glassed in plywood cross support in there so, (I think) it never had a tank installed. Custom built? Somebody got a hold of unfinished shell when the company went under?

Surfside? Triple E?... ah nope, after a second look, too square to be a surf!
