Here's another 13' Trillium to add to the list.

This was my first Trill. When I got the 4500 I gave this one to my Daughter. I finally got over to her place to take these pictures.

There is a long story of how this camper got registered as a '79 which I do not believe it is. I think it is a much earlier year.

It has a front gauncho and no kitchen window. The window in the door does not open. It has an ice box.

Thanks, Dave and Noreen. Your serial numbers have been added.

Noreen, I would say it's a 1976. The logo and door lock changed in 1977.

Dave, I am guessing, but is your tralier a front gaucho?

Looky what I found!

While stripping decals and removing front rack, I came across this label with a build date of Feb. '75. Has anyone else seen this decal?

My Conversation with Tom Young

OK, I just spent almost two hours on the phone with Tom Young of TrilliumRV.com. He filled me in on the model number code. The first two digits refer to the exterior, and the interior color.
1 = Antique White
2 = Green
3 = Orange, (Gold)
The Third digit was not used until later years. It was for the floor plan, but he was not positive of the codes.

So, The Cantaloupe would be 13-2300609, if it was numbered the same as the later Trilliums.

I will post other details of the conversation in a new thread.

I don't get it...can you decode a number into its parts as an example?

How about 4:
Spanke: ....13-2205863...'78: Front Gaucho
220 The first two means a green exterior the second two means a green interior the zero is meaningless in this year. (I hope Spanke's trailer is painted)
Roy:.........45-1111339...'79: Front Gaucho (almost dinette)
111 The first one means white exterior, the second one means white interior, I am guessing, but I am going to say the third one is for front gaucho, (almost dinette)
Noreen:.....45-1121733...'81: Front Dinette
112 The first one means white exterior, the second one means white interior, also guessing, the two means front dinette.
Randy B:...45-1131567...'80: Front Full Bath
113 The first one means white exterior, the second one means white interior, guessing again, the three means Bath

Thanks, David. I am finding this thread very interesting.

I have learned more in the last year about my Trilliums from this site and from you than in all the previous years since I bought my little 13 footer in '98. The more I know the better I am able to take care of my camper and the safer I am able to keep it.

White exteriors? Did first gen exteriors even come in white?

Didn't you post a number a number for ivory or whatever they call that cream color I thought all first-gen Trilliums came in?

You are correct, Dave. My trailer has been painted, really poorly painted! It was originally green outside and inside with front gaucho.

Soon to be repainted correctly, but not green.

Thanks for all our research, I find it really interesting.

I would really like to hear from those of you with another Cantaloupe, that is green on the outside and orange on the inside. It would be nice to have an example with the colour codes. This colour scheme was not uncommon at one point.
