Hi Laurie, I will be in the Richmond area this weekend and next week. Is the 1973 Trillium still available? If so, could I take a look at it? Please let me know, when you have a few minutes. Ben L (Roanoke)

Hi, Ben. Yes, you can come take a look. Tomorrow (Saturday) morning would be okay, before noon. Next week we are around Monday and Tuesday and possibly Wednesday. Then not available to show the rest of the week.

Also, I just looked at the title and it's a 1978. ☺

Pictures

I hope I am not overstepping. Below are pictures from the original thread.

If it is OK, I would like to make some observations:
This trailer is WAY under priced. Baring any unforeseen issues this is a great deal and should have sold by now.

It is a nearly loaded 1300, the only major option it seems to be missing is a shelf above the dinette. New cupboard doors and a matching table look nice, if heavy.

While there may be no fridge, it is set up for it, and RM211's, (the factory fridge) are easy to find for ~$100.

I would like to have seen a picture of the front window rock guard. Is there one?
Could you please describe the required TLC?

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, it has an intact Rick guard. The trailer needs to be replaced. It works fine but has some rust at the ends. Needs some of the rubber strip that goes in the belt around the middle. We think it's a good deal and hoping to sell quickly. We know of no major problems. My phone battery is low, so picture of rock guard to follow in a new comment.

The rubber strip is trivial $20 max


I don't understand what you mean by "The trailer needs to be replaced". Are you saying that the frame needs to be replaced? That would surprise me very much. Can you please post pictures of the problem?

Attached are photos of the rock guard and the front and back portions of the frame. I think frame replacement would be primarily for cosmetic reasons, but I'm not an expert.

I know there's someone out there who will live this trailer for a great price!

From what little I can see, that frame looks fine. Some paint and it will look brand new.
