Trailer: 1978 Trillium 4500 Deluxe
Posts: 295

Hi Everyone,
Over the years on this site there have been at least a couple Trillium Owners that replaced their logos and stripes. I bought 1 logo set for my side entry door from one of you about 5 years ago. I would like to get another one for my front window guard/awning. Also I would like to get striping for my sides of my Trillium 4500 Deluxe which needs to be that "Royal Hawaiian Blue" color. Please let me know if anyone has any sources other than referring me to "Team Trillium"
Thanks,

Dave

P.S. I did the taping and painting of my stripes 6 years, but is beginning to peel. I need to take it to the next step and carefully remove it and simply apply the decal vinyl tape striping on to make it fresh and new again.

I am planning to replace the stripes/logos on my 4500 this spring.
If anyone has already done the homework on this it would be great
to see how they did it.
If not I'll show mine when i I'm done.

One of our members mentioned doing a vector graphic version of the Trillium logo - however I haven't seen it posted. Maybe I will see if the graphic designer in our office isn't too busy =)

I've spent many hours last spring redoing mine in a high quality designer-grade vector format, but am reluctant to distribute them without getting some sort of approval from someone since the exact same Trillium logo seems to be now owned and used by TrilliumRV / Escape... Any advice?

Edit: I just sent the question to TrilliumRV to see what they think.

Hi Chris,
I would be interested on what & who you find. Now, my actual "Trillium 4500" that is on the trailer is still real nice, how is that portion on yours? May we can save money if the company that does make 2 sets. Please keep me posted.

Hi Booker,
Thanks for the feedback. It has been a while since the two of us talked! How was your 1st season with your Trillium? Yes I would be intersted in what you find out from your office. Please keep me updated.

Hi Daniel,
This is new to me. I would think it is'nt a big deal to use the same logo, but good that you are double checking for good measure. What color did you do yours? Can you get different colors?
Let me know!
Thanks,
Dave

Hi Dave
The 'Trillium 4500' above the stripe came out pretty good on mine after a light buffing but the stripes themselves are pretty cracked and faded. Got a good match on the color written down somewhere. The local sign guy said he would order the stripes in any width I want.
The trillium logo on the front window stone guard was faded to almost nothing and glass fibers were poking out. I took the stone guard off, unscrewed what I could, and flipped the panels around. After buffing the aluminum it looks factory fresh. I am looking at replacing this logo in the spring. I'm guessing the hard part (cost) is in programming the design into the computer.
I haven't measured yet but I think the door logo is the same size and I saw a mirror finish vinyl sheet at the shop!

Chris

Dave suggested making two sets... how about three?

Hello Trillium people! I am the proud owner of a 5500 with the Hawaiian Blue Stripes and very faded logo on the front window fiberglass panel. I have the bold TRILLIUM name above the stripe on the rear sides as well. The tape and words are cracking but have only started chipping off in a couple of places. I don't have the raised logo on the door like many other have.



Wonder if it would work to lay new tape lines or cut out sticky letters to put right over the top of the old tape? If I had a template I'd love to paint the guard logo bright again. Please post if anyone can help me figure out how to do it! Helen

Bad news first. Response goes along these lines: it's all trademark material so we officially can't just create any loose mockup of the logo work and stick it onto our trailers. Good news is that 'due to owner requests, TRV has decided to make certain decals available'. They will be on the Parts page in January. So stay tuned...

I could understand that a person couldn't make them up and sell them; OTOH, I don't know how there could be anything illegal about maintaining one's own trailer striping and logos?

Good question. I'm not an expert, but I'd say it's a branding issue with registered trademarks, and they probably just don't want people making approximate copies of the logos and making them red or blue or yellow, using the wrong font, etc. which is hard to control and diminishes the value of the logo. And unlike other companies that are long gone, Trillium still exists and seems to care, so... I think the fact that they are willing to consider making "proper" ones available is a good thing.
