Sorry for the sideways picture, it wasn't like that in my photo library? I thought it was an early model with the "170" which I thought must be the sequential production number much like cars. I also noticed #163 is in B.C. and here 7 trailers later and mine is in Nova Scotia with the original selling RV dealer sticker on the back....kinda cool! I guess they were scattered all over and not shipped in bulk to certain areas.

I am fairly sure that they were made to spec. Lots of customization on some of them.

Your trailer is a bit of a mystery. The blue stripe was usually 1978 and later. Actually, your blue is kinda light. What kind of kitchen do you have?:

Red face Trillium S/Ns

Dave,

As far as I can tell, there is NO S/N on my Trillium.

Besides the title, this is the only thing affixed to the unit:

Good thing I took this picture because the sticker didn't last long out in the weather, and is now gone.
Since then, the reccommended tire pressure was upped to 50psi
I have not found anything stamped on the frame. I think that my unit was #3 made.

I got you on the list Roger:
Roger C H:..........1T9BV131695(S?)948127..'09 Front Dinette

I think that is an S, but could be a 5.

The stripe seems to be original? The original brochures that came with the trailer show it with the blue stripe, but they are not dated, one shows the trailer hooked up to a Plymouth or Dodge Volare/Aspen and the other shows it hooked up to a Toyota Celica and a Ford Maverick... The guy I bought it from had it advertised as a 1979, but the registration says 1977, the kitchen is the same as the third picture in your link, no jut out and one drawer and cupboard under the sink, and the fridge is a RM211, I believe I read on here that the jut out didn't start until 1978, I'll snap a couple pics later today and post them for you to have a look.

Hi again David, here's a couple pics of my kitchen, I just replaced the original stovetop with a Suburban 3 burner model from Camping World (should of got it from Amazon, got dinged a $100 for duty and taxes..lol!) I was happy that it turned out to be the exact same dimensions as the original and dropped right in!, only had to manipulate (carefully) the propane line as the pop out hole was in the middle in the back of this unit and not to the far right as the original. I must say it is a major improvement to see as you enter, the original top got rusty and was repainted a chrome style silver paint....argh! Sorry, I can't figure out how to get those pics to upload properly....lol!

Well, Given your serial number, your kitchen, and the fact that the window in your door does not open, I am going to say you have a 1977, possibly 1976 Trillium 4500.

BTW is your blue stripe painted on, or is it a sticker?

The stripe is a sticker, and yes it is registered as a 77 so maybe this one was produced and sold in the same year, seems a lot have been registered as later models than they actualy are.

The whole point of this thread was to figure out what year of Trillium I bought. It was registered as a 1979, but I knew that was wrong.
CANADA - 1979 - Trillium - 1300 - $1500

Turns out it is a 1972.

Well it turned out to be a great idea to start this, shall we say registry, I actually found it trying to figure out if mine was an actual 77 or 79 as advertised. Your 1972 looks great! And the price was fantastic regardless of the year. Thanks for your hard work!

Another entry for you

Hi David & everyone else reading this!

Here's my data sheet & a few recent pictures. Unfortunately I don't have any good photos of the interior, but it does have the front gaucho. It also has a Coleman furnace even though this isn't shown on the data sheet.

Well Vince, looks like you were correct, your furnace is a PO mod. Nice job from what I can see.

Also, your trailer serial number is in a part of the list that is kinda lacking, so thanks!

I notice something above the propane warning sticker on the front of your trailer. That is were, sometimes, a sticker, that gives the manufacture date, is located. I don't suppose that is the case with your trailer, is it?
