I purchased my 1978 Trillium 4500 Deluxe from the daughter of the first owner. She said it was $6000 when new. The inflation calculator puts that at $20400 in 2011. So they are a bit less expensive today.

I had the West Coast Trillium dealer do a quote on a fairly maxed out 2013 Trillium 1500 with front corner bath and all the fixin's... the price came in at $20,517... so it's just some pocket change difference than the calculated then & now price you posted. I don't know if that pricing is good/bad or in between. To me? It actually seems high by at least a couple grand.

$29,000 today was about $4,900 in 1970 according to bureau of labor statistics inflation calculator.

I assume that the front quarter bath added some cost. Mine doesn't have one. There are likely some other options, like power and music that were not available back in the day. My point is, they actually seem a little less expensive now.
That said, I purchased my first 4500 for... umm... less, lots less, and it was in good shape. The windows need to be re-installed and I still plan to remove the belly band, but I would do that to a new one too.
