My Trillium Herd!!!!!

A few pictures of my Trillium herd,I still have to put the belly band on the 4500 and do more work inside, trying to complete it before I start on the latest one I just bought from Nancy a 1300 that has been painted gray..Going to try to strip it down to the orginal finish and it's going to be a lot of work..looks like I've got alot to do this summer but I really enjoy it......

I think he said he's a HERDER...hmm...doesn't say where the rest of the trailers came from...maybe he's breeding them.
Could be the start of something big!

I can think of worse things to hoard. I have five cars/trucks. Talk about money pits. I think your idea is better Randy!

Yea, I started about 7 years ago with a 1976 Scamp that I bought for $400.00 just sold it not long ago..From there I was hooked since then I've had 7 other Scamps, 2 Burro's, 2 Casita's, 1 U-haul and 5 Trilliums, don't know what it is but I just like the Trilliums better for some reason so I've sold all the others.. out of all those only had one 16'er it was a Casita and liked to have never sold that one for some reason people seem to like the little ones.. the rest was really easy to sell so I've stuck with with the little ones..I've got people that stop probably 2 times a week asking to buy one but I just can't seem to bring myself to sell any of the Trilliums....So yes I've become a HOARDER and just love to work on them from rewiring them to sewing my own cushion covers..The sewing I really don't enjoy that much I broke my back in 3 places in 2000 in a motorcycle accident and I've been on disability since due to sever back problems and the sewing really kills my back, it takes me several days to do just the front cushions but tinkering with these things really helps me keep from stiffing up or I would probably blow up to 300 lbs and no be able to do anything..When your suffering with back problems it's easy to let it get you down if you don't find something to keep you going....so I'll go tinker for a couple hours and then come in surf the internet looking for items for the campers and rest a bit....I though about renting them out in the summer but don't know if that would work or not since I know some people wouldn't take care of them as I would but might give it a try..I sold a Scamp to a member on here "Sugermc" and it was in pieces where I had taken it apart but hadn't gotten it back together at the time but she wanted it "as is", I think she's been very happy with it too..the Trillium 1300 I got from Nancy on here is really going to put me to the test I think, it's in worst shape than I though but like I've always said to my freinds if the shell's not cracked to bad everything else can be fixed or replaced and I just love bringing them back to life...One thing about having so many is I've got 3 grown kids and we have some great camping trips together..............

You have at least 3 reasons to hoard or herd them then. Sometimes I wish we had managed to sell our Burro to our kids, so we could camp together, but they just did not have the space or funds. We needed the funds at the time, so we could not give them much of a deal.

I'll bet you guys really turn some heads when you all show up at a campground- it sounds like a great time.
Color me green with envy!

Cheer up! If Randy's breeding program is successful there might be hope....
Hey, Randy: Spring is in the air! How about turning the Scamp and one of the Trilliums out to the back forty together and let Nature take its course?
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you....the TRAMP!
