The Trillium Saga Continues

It appears that Sterling RV (AKA Great West Vans), latest manufacturer of the US version of the Trillium trailer (not to be confused with the Canadian Outback), is officially defunct:

May 14, 2016

Looks like some bare Trillium chassis are among the items up for bid.

Will Tom Young or someone else be able to raise Trillium from the ashes yet again?

Hi: mzuzel... I noticed the lack of molds in the liquidation pic's of assets from Sterling RV. You'd need them or a Judas trailer to work from.
If someone raises the trill from the ashes it could be called a "Phoenix".

Too bad, I realize that there are lots of reasons for companies to "go under", or go out of business. But, still makes me sad when it happens. Specially the smaller ones.

Isn't that a mold sitting between two roughed-out top shells in the background of one of the chassis photos (the photo showing blue ConQuest boxes mounted on the wall)? If so, if one mold is still there, then the others are also likely still there, and all molds will then likely be sold in the auction. But that's just a guess.... Dale

Hi: War Eagle... You're right. My wife said I need glasses... but I thought that was because we don't see eye to eye!!!

Fiberglass dust?

Somebody, tell me that the fine white dust covering half that shop, tools and inventory is not fiberglass dust! If it is, it doesn’t take much to imagine that OSHA paid them a visit very recently and the report was shall we say, not good. Even if some of that is sawdust, still not good. I wouldn’t attend that auction without a respirator and body suit.
