Trillium 4500 15' $9600

For sale is our 1979 Trillium 4500 travel trailer. This is an amazingly cute 15-foot-long camping trailer in excellent condition. It sleeps 4 plus a small child w/optional toddler bunk (table transforms to a queen bed and sofa converts to 2 bunks in the front). The queen bed is much roomier than most small trailers, and it is surrounded by 3 walls of beautiful louvered windows that let in lots more air than most trailer windows do. Appliances include a 3-way Dometic refrigerator, 3-burner propane stove, propane heater, and Fan-Tastic fan. All appliances are in excellent working order. 12v converter allows electrical components (lights, fan, USB outlets, etc) to run when the camper is plugged in to 120V AC or off of a car battery. All original fiberglass and ensolite interior is very clean. Tows straight; electric brakes are in good working order; repacked wheel bearings in 2017.

Lots of updates and improvements:

- cushions re-upholstered with Sunbrella outdoor fabric.
- new tires
- all LED inside lighting.
- new T-molding and window levers.
- 120v wiring updated.
- new vinyl flooring.
- new window screens (all windows have good intact screens)
- propane system updated (new regulator and tanks and some lines)
- new marker lights and trailer light wiring harness
- re-sealed "belly band" around waist of trailer (no leaks anywhere)

Gross weight is 2000 lbs. Length is about 15' tongue to rear bumper. Clean title.

This is a wonderful little trailer and has served our family well. The only reason we're selling is that we've outgrown it (3 big kids now!), and are sad to see it go. Made in Canada and very rare, these are considered by many to be the best quality fiberglass trailers ever built, in part because the fiberglass wraps completely around the underside of the trailer, whereas other trailers (Scamp and Casita) use plywood underneath which rots with age. Price is pretty firm; please don't hesitate to ask questions.

Pet-free, smoke-free owners

Sorry I didn't include that info! We are in Albuquerque. We could perhaps drive 2-3 hours north to meet you if you're very interested.

+10 Sadly ads remain up and running without any confirmation from seller. It can be very frustrating to buyers.

I continually see people asking "is it still available?". When you see a seller with 3 total lifetime postings on this forum, the last two in this for sale thread, it is doubtful they are still around.

If I could be "king for a day" on this forum, I would automatically delete for sale listings in say 3 to 4 weeks unless the seller gave some type of update like "still for sale".

It would be rare indeed for a Trillium for sale to last 6 months.
