Question city water faucet for 1975 Trillium

I al looking for a replacement city water faucet for my much-loved Trillium. I want something authentic - not the massive taps the RV stores seem to offer. Any ideas?

Post a picture and I am sure someone can help you. Don't know where you are in BC but Escape trailers has helped a lot of fiberglass trailers owners of all brands with repairs. They also built the Trillium under contract for a year a few years back so they know the Trilliums well.

I put in all my trailers a hot water dispenser tap that I buy from Loews . I buy just the tap it cost around 35 bucks. It only has one water supply inlet so I only good for cold water only it is not very large but has a high goose neck so you can get a good size pot in the sink

city water faucet

Thanks for your suggestions and support guys. As Carol suggested, attached is a photo of the current, quite worn out tap. And I live in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island. Shurflo has something that might work - see picture from their on-line catalogue.

That's the one I use in my trailers works great and easy to install

faucet found!

Thanks for all your help guys - kootenaigirl's advice was right on. I bought a faucet from Canadian Tire (their part number 062-1029-0) for $32.99 plus tax, and it works perfectly slightly different from the one kootenaigirl recommended). I actually wanted to replace the standard hand pump, which takes water from the onboard tank, with a faucet tap that I could connect to my electric water pump, which in my Trillium only serves the toilet. I had to make an adapter plate both to cover the hole left by the old hand pump, and also because it is effectively impossible to attach the new faucet otherwise. I did this with a piece of plastic cut from an old house dryer vent. Photo attached.

One happy Royston
