Saying goodbye...

Hi Folks,
I have thoroughly enjoyed my reintroduction to camping these last couple of years since buying my Trillium. While there were many pros to my 'egg', I found it was short on features I came to find desirable. When I swapped my Jetta for a GMC Jimmy my ability to tow a larger trailer became an option. I wanted a proper bed that I could leave made up, a bathroom with a shower and hot water, a larger fridge and an oven. Upgrading to a larger fiberglass trailer with those features was a bit out of my price range. I found exactly what I was looking for in a stick built I could tow with my Jimmy 2 weeks ago. I listed my Trillium on Kijiji and sold it today; it's gone.

Thank you so much to my fellow campers on this site. You have helped me with your generous offers of information when I needed it most. Rarely do we find a fraternity of like minded people so anxious to help friends they have never met; I am richer for the experience and have learned from the interactions. The new owners, as I have often heard before, have owned a Trillium before. They moved on to larger RV's and are now downsizing back to a Trillium. They know what they enjoyed and want to simplify their experience.
Thanks again. Cheers!
Barrie

Barrie, having you as a member of FiberglassRV has been a pleasure. While I'm sad you're moving on, I do understand.

Safe travels... and continue to make memories.

By the way... I live within 2 km of the Trans Canada Highway at the Hartland, NB exit. I have 1.5 acres and can provide power and water to an overnight 'egg' passing through.

Barrie, I'm glad you had your little Trillium, and I'm glad you've found another trailer that will make your camping even more enjoyable for you.

Happy New Year!

Why say good by? Some years ago the site stated it was for enthusiasts also and 90 percent of the questions / answers apply to any type of camper and besides, you having had a Fiberglass camper you will be able to answer many of the questions.

Thank you, Darwin. I have towed my Trillium many thousands of miles and made a number of changes to my 'egg' that may prove helpful to others. I will continue to lurk in the shadows.

Hey Barrie, you'll be back....the first time you have to put that black gooey stuff up on the roof. Then again why leave? We'd love to see pictures of you putting the black gooey stuff on the roof! Safe travels, Raz

Congrats to you too, Yes, I've seen your posts on RV.net.
I got a '94 20' Cobra Sunrise tandem axle. It has a front double bed (real mattress), side dinette, 3/4 size fridge with freezer, full bath with small tub/shower with hot water heater, fresh/grey/black tanks, central heating via propane furnace; just turn it on and adjust the wall thermostat as desired. It has a 4 burner range with an oven, microwave oven, double sink, air conditioner. All windows have pull down blinds as well as curtains. It has a TV antenna that is raised and lowered via a ceiling crank (although I don't watch TV while camping). The couple I bought it from 2 weeks ago purchased a larger trailer, already in storage, and really wanted to sell this one to avoid storage. I was able to negotiate the price down to within $300. of what I sold my 13' '72 Trillium for; almost a straight swap.

Hi Barrie, you dont have to leave. When an Egg did not present itself in time for my summer travels last year Ed on this site graciously offered me his little Dutchmen T@b. I still feel welcome and most of the info still applies as the T@b is a 15 footer. E'thing from towing, to storage issues, appliances, electrical, water systems etc is still the same only the care and maintenance of my exterior is different. This is the friendliest place and the best policed too. I will have an Egg one day so I'm not going anywhere.
