That ad has been around for some time now. Anyway I don't think many of us could afford to buy a new home in Canmore.

No kidding - that ad has the prices at $300 - $500,000 - and that's probably just for an apartment style condo. Ouch!

Hey, we drove by Canmore in our affordable vacation unit this year and it looked just this... but beige.

On the geekier side... what's odd is this is a Trillium Body style but with only 2 panes instead of 3 and no flower on the door. Did surfside do a 13' model?

Actually, the Surfsides were 2 pane copies of the Trillium! Helps pricing when you can reduce the size of your windows by 1/3.

Howdy, I`d spent some time in Canmore in 1963 and our Honeymoon in 64....relatives there tried to get me to buy property in that coal mining town at about $500 a lot......man....if I only knew....Duh! ..... but then again money was tight.....still should have taken a long shot chance! .....And that was when they still had Cougars in Cougar Canyon across the highway from the town....Benny

Ah yes, but Surfsides came only in a 4500 mold from what I have read so this 1300 with dual panes is an anomaly - I guess it is just photo shopped.

Excellent find Raya - a member found an ad with a Trillium style trailer on it. It had only 2 window panes and we could not figure out what it was.

Oh neat, a tie-in. Just by the by, these windows also look "taller" to me than those in the (15') Surfside.

I kind of hope someone here takes a look at it or buys it. Then we get to see inside

Booker: Just imagine what kind of funky color the inside might be!

I had a fellow with an older Trillium stop in at the shop looking for parts. When he was describing some of the things about his trailer, things weren't making sense so I had to go out for a look! Didn't pick up on the windows but I would presume it had the same double pane style. What was odd was there was no front rock shield and a solid front and rear windows. None of the window areas in the shell were flattened out (if that makes sense) for the window to sit flat in the curved wall. The frame was bent at the axle step rather than one stacked on top of the other and welded. The body was also molded to match the bend. There was also no bumper. The frame rails were capped off. Now that could have been a mod at some point but it looked stock. The other thing was the door latch. It was a round style with the door molded to match. This unit did not have a furnace or fridge/ice box. Had me scratchin my head till now....early model!! He is supposed to come by with it one of these days to show the upgrades (furnace and rock shield) so I will try to find out what number it is and year.

Oh yeah....and it only had a 2x2 frame! Now that I think about it....I believe it had wood cabinetry inside, no fiberglass. Man I have to take some memory pills!!! Next time I see it I will grab my camera. When I saw it I thought with the light frame and lack of interior maybe Trillium made some construction trailers.
