Yup dont disagree! It sure looks like one to me as well, just sharing what the party who sold it to Ryan told me last fall. He has owned and flipped a lot of fiberglass trailers and he thought it was a Sportsman when he first picked it up as well (but it wasnt registered as a Trillium) but after talking to Trillium and getting some more info from them and more measurements of various items he wasnt convinced it was a Trillium...... but as Ryan pointed out it does match the basic measurements in the Sportsman brochure.....

Just a quick update,It has been quite some time, all winter in fact since I last posted.I roughed out the interior and then dismantled it so as to put in the ensolite. I have just purchased it from Trillium USA. It arrives here Wednesday April 17> My weekends are all booked until may long weekend so I get it done.
Tom at Trillium has been quite a bundle of information, at first he didn't remember building these units in the mid 70s> they made 1/2 dozen for a tobacco company to haul around there advertising or something like that. That justifies why they put in the rear doors, to get larger pieces in and out. Tom was trying to buy it back but I have to much into it for him to buy. They discontinued them for lack of sales or ?. I will post all pictures once the ensolite is in. Thanks for the interest in my little gem,
Ryan

Whoot Whoot! Ryan glad to hear you have made some head way on this and that Tom now recalls these trailers!! Believe that was part of the reasons the previous owner questioned if it really was a Trillium. Post photos please! looking forward to seeing what you do with it!

Let's review!

I will try to post the brochure we got at the Markham factory in the 70s. This particular model could have been customer customized at the factory. Tom Young at Trillium RV.com might know for sure.

Well where to start? I thought before the weather turned to winter I would wax the exterior and I did use the high gloss Zep floor wax. It turned out to be a good workout for my arms. the worst was washing it down with Bar Keepers friend, After that it looked real good' lots of grime came off and I thought it was pretty good before now it looked terrific. Then came 5 coats of wax which I applied with a chamois cut down to cover over a block of wood covered with foam(like ensolite foam). Now it looks fabulous. I don't think the before picture and after picture show that to well. maybe you can see the difference? the other picture is of why work outside stopped in December. I started work on the inside also at this time hoping to glue in all the backing strips for the upper cabinets and benches before it got to cold to set the glue. I managed to get most of them in and will post the pictures of how I got the locations etc. I also got to a couple of wreckers and managed to get a fridge, 6 lights, 2 windows, switches and outside grates for fridge and storage compartment doors. I also bought a marine switch-breaker panel that combines 12 volt and 120 volt. In the next post or maybe the one after I will post a pictue of that panel.

Welcome back, Ryan!

Say-
Before you get too far into the reno, how 'bout starting a new thread on the subject?

Might be nice to sorta lop off all the prior discussion, PLUS you could name it "Trillium Sportsman Renovation" instead of the "What the heck is this trailer???" title the O.P. started this thread with!

Francesca

I think Bee is asking about a brochure for the Jubilee, not the Sportsman. There is a Jubilee brochure here in the document center, though.

It's a download at this Trillium documents link.

I appreciate the pointers towards the brochures....maybe what I should be saying is a brochure with LOTS of pics... I'm looking for interior shots and exterior....to guide the work I am doing!

David, interesting to note that the Jubilee manual states it's ~1500lbs, but my specs sheet says 2000lbs, do you know what makes the difference? It also stated its a one piece body....is this actually true?, I thought there were all moulded two piece, attached with the belly band...
