Oh Yay! I second Ken C.'s request for a Trillium tour volunteer. It's a far drive from central Vermont and I'd welcome someone's take on the factory AND the 4500.

I'm confused. How many Trillium factories are there?

I did a quick online Direction search... and that Factory is 99 miles north of me, and it supposedly takes 1 hour and 35 minutes to get there.

I'll try to contact them and see what happens...

I can understand the quandary. There's Outback (Team Trillium) in Canada (which is a completely separate company from TrilliumRV). Escape USED to build the frame/shell for the US Trillium manufacturer, but now Mattman Specialty Vehicles is doing the build.

It's within a half hour of my home. I'll do it!


I owe you all pictures of my new trailer anyhow. May as well shoot away once I get the camera warmed up.

Just give me a day and time. Anyone else want to meet me? We'll make a day of it!

Before you make the trip, you may wish to call and ask if you can even take pictures of the building process... if that's the intent of the trip. I know at least one molded trailer manufacturer that doesn't allow pictures to be taken inside the plant. One other manufacturer actually encourages photos. Why the differences and why NOT? Otherwise you may only come home with pictures of the outside of the building.

Hi: Donna D... I'm confused??? I just looked at your link to Team Trillium and the trailer shown, not on the home page but the next "Outback" tab, looks to be built for a foreign market. The door seems to be on the wrong side of the trailer!!! Either that or I've had to much "Super Bowl" punch.

all the pics look like the door is on the curb side to me.

There is one with a larg door on the street side that may be an access door of some kind, or a photo shop oops.

It doesn't go the whole height of the rig.

I believe that whomever designed that page of copy decided to reverse the curbside photo in order to get the trailer to face toward the center of the page. I've seen that done with print ads for automobiles.
