Trailer: 1980 Trillium 13 ft
Ontario
Posts: 15
Took a wrong turn the other day and noticed a Trillium sitting at the end of a driveway. Took a couple of days to get the courage up before I inquired about it. The old couple said it was for sale as they were unable to take it to bluegrass festivals any longer. The price was too good to pass up especially for a front dinette model. Its a 1980 1300 even has an awning and an add a room. Needs a good cleaning and I am going to make new cushion covers if I can find out how to do it.

yep.. it does! That's how I got mine and now it is my full time home.

Congrats on your find! You'll have to change your profile now from "None" to Trillium on your RV type!

Good for you! The worse thing that could ever happen to an inquiry like that is that you'll get a "No". Even then, if you ooh and ahhh over it you can always leave your number and odds are that in the future they'll want to sell to someone they like, and that would be you!

Wow! Looks like new in the pictures. I wonder if this creampuff has always sat outside or if it spent a good portion of its life under cover? Congratulations on your good find.

No, but thanks for the heads up! LOL. Found this one in Peterborough...had a line on another one that's been sitting for years, but owner wouldn't part with it, was using it as a storage shed...even offered to buy a shed for him, but no go. What a shame!
