New To Me Trillium

Well I am back again , boy that did not take long....after selling our Bigfoot 5th wheel I said to myself that I never should have sold my 13 ft Trillium . I found a nice 1976 Trillium 13 ft local sale. The body is the nicest one that I have ever seen. No cracks or damage, all the windows work good it has a heater and a 3 way fridge. One problem with this trailer was the frame was cracked and poorly repaired. (not a deal breaker ) Over the years with all the rain water running down the body and onto the frame and then in the crack the frame is rotten. (purchase price was cut in half)

Now I have contacted Trillium twice with no response asking for a price on a replacement frame, and or cad drawings for a local fab shop to build a new one.

Does anyone on here have a picture or a drawing that they have done that they could share to help me with building a new frame for my new trillium.

Thanks In Advance
Craig in Winnipeg

Congrats on your purchase. You should bring it out to our Fiberglass and Vintage Camper Rally the 3rd weekend of August at St Malo Provincial Park. Look for more info in January when I do the Official invite for next years Rally.

Is this what you are looking for?

Increasing the carrying capacity of a Trillium

I did the drawing of a 4500, but it is my understanding that the 4500 and 1300 frames are almost identical, except the 4500 is longer behind the axle.

I have a 1300 as well, but rolling around in the snow to measure it doesn't sound like fun.

I could send you the 4500 drawings. Do you have AutoCAD?

trillium frame

Hey that looks great, I like how you put the spare under the frame frees up the rear bumper of the trailer for something else like a bike or lawn chairs.I put off working on my trailer today its -25 with a windchill of -36
