Our New Trillium 1500...

Eggers : A huge shout out of heartfelt thanks to Tom Young of Trillium RV in California !!!

Despite some unforseen setbacks along the way (catalitic converter repair & some nasty weather..) Tom rolled into Romulus Michigan at about 4AM this morning after a loooong drive cross-country...& the wife and I were there to meet him and help unload our new Trillium 1500 off the flatbed trailer.

He will be at the Toronto RV show this weekend (Fri & Sat & Sun) with a new 1300 & 1500 for those of you that may wish to see them.

Our whole purchase transaction (even considering the hour..) went off perfectly...Tom's obviously a pro at handling the paperwork things, and we were hitched up & on our way home in a very short time.

For those of you who may never have done it, the details at the Canadian border were a breeze...& it's an interesting thing to note...as we were told this morning at Windsor's Ambassador Bridge...that they are processing paperwork for at least 60 cars per day bought in the states by Canadians !!!

Ya just gotta love Can $$$$ at par !!!

Anyway, our new 1500 Trillium is safely parked beside our house now & patiently waiting for better weather !! (pictures to follow...)

Obviously, we are very pleased about all this & can't wait for summer !!!

I'm also looking forward to teaching some of you how to speak "eggtalk" (something I never thought I'd actually ever use..) at Bolerama 2011 !!

Cheers, P.

So Canadians but and import american cars one at a time? Can americans buy and import candaian cars? I would think there would be all sorts of pollution control issues.

Don : As I understand it, some modifications occasionally need to be done, however, the savings are to the point these days that it still makes cross-border importing an advantage for many Canadians.

It certainly did for our new 1500 !!

Cheers, P

Congratulations on the new arrival. Can't wait for the pictures. Just curious, was there a benefit to taking delivery in the U.S.? Why not meet in Canada? Raz

Hi Raz : In speaking to Tom about buying a 1500, I found out that he was bringing two trailers to the Toronto RV show in Feb & his (original) plan was to cross over at Niagara Falls & then proceed to Toronto.

He let me know that since the trailers were coming up to Ontario & since there was room for just one more on the flatbed trailer, he could work out a good deal for me, if I were to act right away.

So...with Can $$$ & US $$ at par...an RV show discount...the ability to import the trailer personally by running it accross the bridge on my own, and a couple of other personal reasons...I really couldn't expect to ever have things work out any better & that's why I decided to go for it.

Of course, now that it's home...I just can't stop smiling when I look out the window at it...it's just sooo cute !!

There's just something special about our molded fiberglass eggy trailers that set them apart from all those square cornered, white sided chip-board trailers out there.

Perhaps it's just the personal satisfaction of knowing that it's really an heir-loom...something that will endure throughout the decades.

It's how much freedom we have to just pick up & go that it represents & how easy...due to it's light weight & compact size...that it is to have one in the family.

And speaking of family...how about the community here in the forum...where we're all glass-eggers & support each other with tips & helpful advice.

They're smooth to the touch, they look so nice when they're shined, they pull down the highway so easily & (best of all) so many folks envy us.

And they should !!

P.

Congratulations! I saw a new 1500 at Quartzsite Feb 12/13. I had an immediate case of '2 footitis.'

However, until we get a new tow vehicle, we will have to stay with our under 2K# 13'.

What appliances, etc. did you get with it?

Congratulations on the new trailer.
Be aware that the last time someone brought a brand new trailer to "Bolerama" they were inundated with well wishers and Iwannaseeit'ers. Hardly had any time to themselves.
BTW Iwannaseeit!....... and learn some new 'eggtalk too. Will look forward to meeting you
Jim

James : Egg-talk is (sort of) a form of pig-latin...& lots of fun if you practice it a bit.

What's done is to drop the word "egg" in front of every vowel sound in a word that you're saying...for instance...

Your name "James" would be "J-egg-ames"....or to say it fast...it would be "Jeggames".

I am "Peggaul"...and my wife Mary is "Meggar-eggy"...and so on.

The multi syllable words are sometimes a little challenging, but often quite fun, & when you start practicing this, be prepared to laugh !!

A friend back in my high school days taught me how to speak "egg"...& to be honest, even as cute & funny as it all was, I never really expected to have the opportunity to teach it to people later in life...and then I discovered the FRV forum !! I guess you should never say never !!

The young gal responsible for teaching me to be an "egg-liguist" was called Andrea, who's name in egg-talk is..."Egg'an dregge-egga" and for obvious reasons, I've always liked saying her name !!)

Anyway, I'm looking very forward to sharing all this silliness here, and at the Bolerama too...because life should be about a bit of fun after all...and, I'm sure that many here can agree about that !!

Ch'egg eers, Peggaul.

Actually, the plan is to leave the stern table set up as a bed & just eat at the forward table.
