Jorg, I would love it if you posted a picture of the data sheet on your closet door, as well as some pictures of the interior, and exterior of your trailer.

Yours is not the first front gaucho with a 112 in the serial number. Clearly, I have not figured out what that number means yet.

There are two data sheets. I have seen this before. I think the Trilliums sold in Quebec needed one in English and French.

Lots of work done on this trailer.

T4500 serial numbers

Hi Dave,

sorry for the time it took to respond. My best suggestion is to contact Trillium directly. I talked to a man there last year in Texas or near there who was also at the Markham Factory in the 70's. He should be able to decipher the code if there is one. Mine was sold in Ontario Canada, so there may be a country code.
George in Toronto

PS let me know if the pix get there?

George, Just to confirm your serial number: 45-1131172.
I have discussed this with Tom Young. It was he who told me that the first two digits after the 45- indicate color. He was also not sure what the next digit was for.

T4500 serial numbers

hi Dave,

my serial number is 45-1121172 NOT a 3 in position 3.

FYI, I am also attaching the front interior view showing the "bunk-bed" as it is now.

regards, George

Thank you. It looks like you are missing the front window. Also your fridge seems to have been replaced. Is that a drawer above your fridge?

I would love it if you could post some more interior shots.

T4500 serial numbers

Hi Dave,

the front window is not missing, stored in my garage because I don't want/like front windows on trailers, since they always end up leaking (in my experience). So I removed it and replaced it with 1/2 " marine plywood covered with a fibreglass sheet outside. I will send some of the pix when I get time. Just an FYI, the Fridge is not original and neither are any of the other appliances, cushions and curtains. They came out of a mid 90's tent trailer that was cheaper than buying new parts. The part above the fridge is just a temporary fix (sheet of arborite) until I decide to install a larger one. The Trilli was bare when I "rescued" it.

George

Ummm.... Bill...

I can't read that. On your registry, it looks like the serial number is 13-1202737? Is that correct? Some pictures of the trailer would be good too.

How did I miss this? I even posted it!
AB (Canada) - 1981 - Trillium 4500 - $5400

45-1101754 - This would be the youngest Trillium on the list.

Have had a 4500 Trillium # 45-1101109 for a couple of years parked in my driveway outside Boston MA. It had a bathroom at one time, but the porta potty was removed and the outside vent was closed. Now, there is a dinette in front, a mattress in back, and a lot of work still to be done. My next step is to remove all the extra pots, pans, chairs, milk crates, etc and take it to the recycling area to weigh it. Maybe, just maybe it will come in under 1500#. Last year had no usage due to illness but the previous year we took it to eastern NY and later to Cape Cod with my stick shift Element, the only minor problem was the rear tire air pressure being quite low coming back from the Cape.

The person I bought it from cleaned it up, put on a Pergo floor, put on a new front triangle with a 2" receiver, replaced the axle and it now has electric brakes. He also did something to the belly seam as a 4" +/- band of interior elephant skin is removed all around and not replaced. Haven't figured out what to do about that yet.

This was the first egg I had seen that was for sale, although I had stopped and talked to a few Canadians who were towing theirs in the lower 48.

Cheers and ciao.

Marvin

Marvin,

I am honored that your first post is in my thread. Welcome to the site. No offense to those who love their front bath Trilliums, but with no shower, I just can't see the point. A front dinette is way more useful. I would love to see pictures.

A 4" wide gap in the Ensolite is going to be tough to cover. Too bad you don't have the Ensolite that he took off, but it would probably be in small pieces anyway. All I can think of is that he was trying to stop a leak in the belly band. This is a common problem in the land of winter. Water gets into the socket formed by metal plates that hold the belly band on. Then successive cycles of freeze, and thaw open that socket up, till it leaks on the inside of the trailer. How I dealt with it is detailed here:
My Second Belly Band Thread

You might try getting a strip of new Ensolite:
Ensolite IUO Peel and Stick --- 1 yard (13.875 sq ft) - RAAMaudio Inc.

Then paint it with a matching colour. The seams could be hidden with a paint-able calk, or use the same T molding that the rest of the trailer has.
