Sounds to me like you got just the Triller you needed. Hope you and the family will get years and miles of enjoyment from it. Congratulations.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.

Already we have decided that our two little ones will sleep together on the lower bunk...with a pillow at each end...they both add up to the perfect length! I'll keep you posted on that one...expecting a few issues...'Greta's kicking me!'

How do people get up on the higher bunk? I can't imagine without a ladder...maybe a 6 year old could climb up. My girls are only 2 1/2 and 4 years old.

Does anyone actually use the top bunk for sleeping?

My boys take turns sleeping on the top bunk...They love it!
I need to build some sort of ladder to make it easier for them, for now they climb up using the counter/stove area as step...Not ideal but it works! We also use a colapsable bed rail to keep them from rolling off the top bunk. We store the rail under the bottom bunk cushion when not in use.
Pretty soon my boys will be too heavy to sleep on the top bunk and we will have to come up with a more sturdy support system for the top bunk or it's out in the tent for them!
Congrats on your "new" Trillium....Enjoy!
Cheers! Emily

Congratulations on your 'new' Trillium. It is a nice looking unit. I well remember the excitement getting that first egg caused in our house.

In case you missed the advice, make your first 'camp out' in your driveway so that you have the support of your house in case you forget something.

Congrats Melanie!! I'll be in Halifax next week with my '72 Trillium. I grew up in Purcell's Cove and most of my family lives in the Metro area.

There seems to be some special cache with these older Boler and Trillium eggs. May I ask what that is about? Are they made differently? Better? What's the inside scoop here?

Have you seen one in person?

I just got a 1977 trillium...although I haven't even slept in it yet...I love it. Never mind the fact that they are light, fun to work on, very spatious, etc. etc...they have a lot of character. A Canadian icon...I think.
