Thought I would pass this along. I went to to see what I could find out about the new Trillium. This was my response from my e-mail there and I let him know that I saw his website on this one.
Thanks for your inquiry.
I am in the process of restarting the Trillium Company. I don't expect any difficulties, since over 13,000 trailers were built under my watch.
I am contracting the "Outback" trailer manufacturer to build the early models. They obtained a couple of the molds over the years, and are doing a good job of building a quality product. I've visited them several times recently to be sure of the quality of workmanship.
I will bring the trailers to the San Francisco Bay Area for the final finish and upgrade for the "Trillium" look. Later in the year, the entire trailer will be built here.
I haven't settled on the final items as standard equipment, so a price list won't be ready until about Dec. 20. Actual pictures can't be taken until I have the final product, which won't be until sometime in January. I am making pictures and layout drawings available from the old Trillium brochure. Of course, they're 25 years old, but the layout won't change. The interior will also be the same, but with updated cushions, curtains, appliances, and cabinet doors. I should have this as an additional web page sometime tomorrow, Wednesday at the latest.

I will advise you when I have new information available.

Out of curiosity, where did you hear about this? I've only had the site up for a few weeks.

Thank You

Tom Young

Thankyou for the new link to Trillium website
As an ex - 1977 Trillium 13 footer, this was interesting to see.
I'm confused though, I thought the new Trillium "Outback" was already going full blast, but maybe they stopped production. Hope the new 1300 and 4500 is better priced - can't see paying 20000 bucks for even a trillium.
Too bad they can't keep the old window system - that was the key ingredient for the Trillium.

I wonder how they will merge the 2 operations or if they will be separate. I gotta get a look at the the new 4500's when they are available.

I wonder how much will be changed from my 2005 Outback? Very intereesting developments.

If these folks had a dealer in the USA it would be great. I emailed a while back and they informed me there was no dealer in the USA.
