Trailer: 1978 Trillium 4500
Posts: 17
I have been lurking for perhaps 6-8 months now, and just last week found a 1978 Trillium 4500.
While I have been pretty quiet on my questions, I have been soaking up the details and information on this site.

A big thanks to all for sharing your experiences, this makes is much easier for us looking for equipment!

-Ian in Nova Scotia......

Good job, Ian!
You've taken the big step, paid the cost of admission and whether you like it or not....you've become one of us! With the admission of the Trill's purchase, you have become a member of the FGRV fraternity and are now expected to contribute your share of successful (and not so successful!) modifications and travel experiences.
Working on your Trill and travelling with it are all part of the journey to be shared!
The adventure has begun--ENJOY!
Kurt & Ann K.

Hello Ian,
Before you bought your trailer, did anyone tell you that you should find the closest chaper of FGA. (Fiber Glass Anonymous) These trailers are an addiction to be sure. You will find ways to customize it and make it all yours. When you start lying awake at night thinking of modifications, it is time to go to a FGA meeting. Unfortunately, you would only see others mods that you can do and you be hopelessly lost in FG land.

Ok, ok, to my room.

Welcome to the fiberglass family, Ian! (You have to go to the Jokes section and see our okra obsession to see why we have a dancing okra smiley.) Don't be shy about asking questions. That's the way we all learn from each other.

Hi Ian - Welcome and congratulations! You're in a great part of the continent for egging. Barb and I had a wonderful time in Nova Scotia two years ago. One of our best campsites was the municipal campground down on the docks in Louisbourg: a great place to play sea shanties on my old concertina.

Hi Jack, When we went East in 2002, I stayed very near your campsite spot, about the second or third trailer from the front road along that fence in the pic, a stones throw from the theatre......beautiful country out there isn`t it? ........Ian, where abouts in Nova Scotia are you located? .....Benny

Hi Ian,

We are planning a trip to Nova Scotia this summer in late August. Would love to visit that campground in Louisbourg. We won't have the Chevy with us but you wouldn't miss the bright pink trailer. If anyone sees us on our travels come over and say hi.

Hi Benny: That music theater was one of the great things about the CG - good Cape Breton Celtic music every night we stayed there! The fortress of Louisbourg was also a great attraction. We have very fond memories of Nova Scotia and hope to get back there in a year or two.

This hilltop just behind Macleod's Beach CG near Inverness was another Cape Breton site we enjoyed.

There are more than a few of us who wished it had been left under "O" in the dictionary.
