I'm wondering if there was more than one set of molds.

Well, there seem to be several 1300 molds, (Trillium / Outback have at least one set) but Tom manufactured the 4500, (1500) molds by taking apart an old 4500.

Looks like a Trillium Logo molded into that door panel. Just a rebrand name?

Full side view. I do like the smooth look of the windows and the
Trillium insignia is on the door.

This Great West Sidekick 13' was made with the same mold as my 2010 Trillium. Notice the area below the door. I meet an owner of an Ontario made Trillium who told me that was a cure for a door seal issue on the older trailers. Perhaps David knows more? This "fix" is not seen on a Trillium made during the Escape joint venture.

There is one other improvement. After mine was made they redid the door mold to correct the misalignment with the belly band. Up until then it was impossible get the raised band on the door and the trailer to line up. Both my 2010 and the original Trilliums have this flaw. Raz

Hi: All... I think Tom's the fly in the ointment!!! He may have "Sicked the legal beagle's" on Sterling cause he owns the trademark rights to name logo etc.
This seems to be a systemic problem in the fiberglass world. Takes a lot of capital to get them towing, with or without the "Right's". I wonder which trailer ETI sacrificed to build the first Escape? They have also abandoned the 13-15 foot market!!!

Chillhowee RV near Knoxville, TN still has a new 2014 for sale: #T98049 - 2014 Trillium Sidekick 1500ST for sale in Louisville TN

It has a toilet / shower in the front corner, and a double size bed (true double size).

The ad says a queen bed but I bet you're right saying a double. I wonder how you get the front screen out to clean it with the shower partition there. At that price I'm surprised it hasn't sold. Raz

I have seen the camper-- the bed is only a double. Chillhowee sales reps brought it to the 2014 Eggscursion in Townsend, TN to show it off - at the time, MSRP / asking price was $22,000 and everyone who saw it thought it was overpriced (including me).
The price has gradually dropped. I you compare it to a new 13' Scamp with the big bed, it's still higher priced for about the same amenities. The difference between it and a new Scamp is you can buy it / take it home right now.

The reason I bought a Trillium is the windows. Here in the north east public campgrounds don't have power so AC is useless. Being able to open a window on each side is very nice. That said a Scamp has a warranty and will be around should you need parts. With Trillium you are on your own. Raz

Raz,
What parts are you thinking of? Most of the components are off the shelf right?
I only ask because I have a family friend near there that is interested. Since you own one i thought you could offer some insight.
