YUREEKA I think it's a Trillium that has been re regd. the interior specks are not the same, but I think this one was redone to accomodate much more creature comforts, micro, comode room with personal storage and such...it has all wood interior, I thought all Trilliums had fiberglass counters and wall units...oh well. Thanks to Carol for her efforts with the brouchure.

It is partially Trillium. The quality work on the interior is either a very skilled owner, or another shop that works in wood.

I am dieing to know what all those vents on the curb side are. Do you know?

I have thought that I would jump at the chance to have a Trillium utility trailer. I find one, but the inside is too nice!? Weird! If I ever find the this one:
Trillium Utility Trailer - $2,900 (Winter Garden, FL)

Then, I am afraid I would be willing to pay too much for it. Look at all those windows! There is the equivalent of a back window, with an escape hatch, on both sides, not to mention the regular front windows and the one in the door. Now that I have seen the windows in the door of your trailer, I think I would have to add those as well. I would use is as a work shop with a view. Working on Trilliums in a Trillium.

If anyone knows where this trailer is, I would love to know!

My wife says that four trailers is the limit. If I find it, then maybe the 18 year old, and his trailer, need to go.

BTW, he got a job roofing. $16/hr! Two weeks now.

My "five cents"..this unit has almost (but not quite) an identical body shape as our 79 Tril Jubilee...it's missing some aft side windows and a small "flat" panel aft of the door...and of course it has the rear "patio entrance double doors" ..but the style is definitely from a Trillium mold....same side door, same front window, etc. The interior is "a complete redesign" however...someone's done a lot of custom work?

The Trillium Sportman came empty if I am reading the brochure correctly so anything inside would be expected to be custom.

LOL I suspected it would give someone a few ideas! French doors would be a cool feature! I'm kind of wondering if there is a chance the trailer was actually taken to be finished off by Triple E thus the registration name mix up ..... but then again the inside looks newer than that or at least in the photos it does ... hummm hopefully the purchaser will be able to talk with the previous owner to get the whole story.

hi folks new to this forum so will try to be brief and accurate. I now own this trailer from the Kootenays. It is registered as A 1969 triple e Sportsman. Although it is a Trilliam. I have completely gutted it as the worksmanship in side of it was good it weighed to much for the axles to bear. It weighs 1298 lbs empty spare tire and propane bottle (full) left on at weigh scales. I removed 550 lbs of plywood out of it and it was a real struggle to remove as all was glued nailed and screwed together. The remaining items water tank, heater, sink, icebox and stove top might weigh in at 100 lbs combined if I throw the micro wave and curtains in with the lot. ( it had 4 motorcycle tie downs also) I have since removed the doors and replaced the backing for mounting of doors. The rear door has a 2x2 vertical steel frame with 3/4 inch plywood sandwiched in between fiberglass and steel, all backing was dryrotted from leaking doors seals. I reglued new plywood to these sections and butyl and remounted all the doors. When cleaning the dirt from where door mounts on fiberglass I found the fiberglassers witness tags for assembly of the two halves it is impressed in the fiberglass the number is 003 and yes I am thinking it is a early Trillium and some of the shoddy ways in which the two molds are put together unlike later ones.I will post the pics of the work so far when i figure how to do. I have a long way to go to totally rebuilt. It needs a few more original windows and new axle and cabinetry. as for frame it is real good and a far cry better than my Boler. I will welcome the extra 2 ft when done.
Someone asked about the vents on the curbside the small middle one is stove top fan vent and the heater vent next to door the rear most one is a opps vent!! someone in the past had cut a hole for looks to me like water filler, did not use it and did not do a great patch job so covered it with grill.

these two pics are of fiber glassers witness marks impressed into mould before assembly of the halves. When our fiber glassers at Waterway Houseboats made two parts for assembly to make one larger part they just etched there marks in and recorded them(no fancy die stamp marks) This gave them the required number of parts pushed out of each mould, so scheduling for maintenance and longevity of mould was always known at all times. These two marks lead me to believe they are the third pushed out of these particular moulds. Has anyone found marks in newer Trilliums?
