Trillium size question

As part of my continued efforts to get a fiberglass trailer into my life, we are building a mock up of a Trillium out of cardboard to see how it might fit in our yard (off an alley). My husband's biggest concern is where will we keep it??

Here' s what I have found for dimensions of the actual trailer (without tongue). Do they call this the box??

12' long
6' 8" wide (80")
7'4" tall
Do these look pretty correct?

I am wondering what the height is of the trailer box, not including tires. I can't seem to find any info on the clearance so we can make the box and then add tires.

Here's photos of my workers, in the first one they're already on an "Otter Pop" break!

I'd go with 13' long, for a 1300, and 15' long for a 4500. Your width seems a bit wide. I think it is closer to 6'4" wide. Not sure on the height.

Thanks for the correction on the width, the specs just said "less than 80".

I thought the tongue added 3 feet to the length? We are going to add a 3 foot stick to the front for dragging it around. Hmmm...maybe put it in our red flyer wagon...

Oh, I was not considering the tongue separately. The fiberglass on a 1300 would be ~10'. On a 4500, ~12'. I will go home and measure it.

how far we got

Here's what we got done today. Ran out of big pieces of cardboard. This is the bottom and sides. It's bigger than I expected.



My husband wants to know if it's okay to post cardboard on a fiberglass forum??

Your measurements are pretty good . Hopefully you can convince your husband of the advantages - no, the NEED - to have one of these trailers. Then, he'll look past any space problems. Nice to see you're making this a family effort! We always like to see families when we go to Fibreglass trailer rallies. We've taken our kids with for the last 12 years.

Smile Our Trillium 1300

This thread got me to thinking, so I took my tape out and measured Homelet. Here is what I got. Understand I did estimate by sight:

Width: 78" Height: 92" Length: 178" *

* Length is is over the spare tire which adds about 10".

We have a unique trailer tongue which was not bent in both directions because at the time Tom couldn't find someone to bend the frame tubing the long way.
