Can anyone identify this trailer, sort of Trillium looking?

Our neighbours said a local dealer had a 'Boler' trailer. We stoped by but they were closing so only got a quick glimpse of this trailer which when we saw it from a distance thought it was from the Trillium family - jalousie front window, Trillium looking roof with small vent. Maybe a 15 footer. But on closer inspection it had a single straight door set in on the passenger side and then at the back double straight doors that looked like they were original with a bargman lock. Inside had the kitchen and cupboards on both sides and the the u shaped dinette at the front. As i say just got a glimpse and will go back tomorrow to look again but couldn't indentify it and my finger is getting sore from searching.
Looks like from the 70's, same cream as Trilliums.
It didn't look like it had been modded, anyone have any ideas

Double back door's? Never seen such a thing....... I would think that had to be a aftermarket mod........... But you never know! Do take pic's and post them. It will be interesting to figure out....

Was the dinette built in same fiberglass? Or something else?

Doubledoor? Possibly a Harry Potter.

Went to see it this am

Okay, this is an odd trailer!
I wonder if someone just bought as shell as the interior looks all added in - homemade wood cupboards etc. There is no insulation on the walls, the back doors look like they were original or someone was very good at fiberglass, they are really inset and with smooth curves etc, the side door may not be original but it looks like it was always inset. There are hardly any windows - very strange. It has the Trillium type rock guard on the front with no insides.
Sorry was so perplexed by the doors forgot to take pics of the insides.
The dealer said it is on consignment and he didn't know anything about it apart from fact owners said it is a Trillium - it is a 13 footer.
They wanted $4000 which i think is over priced and it's been sitting there for 4 months, out back though so hard to see.
Would be a neat project for someone who wanted to carry bikes or a small kayak.
Anyone have any ideas, it doesn't look like any Trillium i have ever seen.

Kinda looks like this one:
Trillium Utility Trailer - $2,900 (Winter Garden, FL)

I'd say it is a Trillium utility trailer that has been camperised.

I see two city water connections, one on the back.

I would love to know what furnace it has. I don't recognize the vents.

It has a Bargman L400 on the rear door, but I don't recognize the latch on the side door.

I love the step bumper.

Pictures of the interior please.

It looks Trillium'ish, there is no Trillium emblem on the opposite side of the door. The rear double doors look like a very good mod. I highly doubt they are original and the entrance door looks to be the same as the rear door. My best guess is that it is a highly modified Surfside but would need interor pics to be sure.

David, that one you found looks just like it. Thanks thats amazing.
Rick - I wondered about something from the Surfside family also but after seeing David's find it does appear Trillium made a utility trailer - who would have known!
This forum is so helpful.

The utility trailer in Florida has a window on the curb side that belongs on the back of a regular Trillium. It also has a road side window on the back.

This trailer has the small kitchen window on the road side, but more windows in the doors.

Based on the significant differences I assume that Trillium was very open to custom trailers.

It looks like the fiberglass for the tail lights is the same, but they used different lights.

I am really interested in what is behind those vents.

Do you think it's fiberglass or composite? We have seen several composite trailers that were made much like fibglass travel trailers.........




most of the composite trailers seen have been made for Electrical companys, reserarch companys, etc..........

Kinda like those composite truck camper, van-ish looking trucks sitting on the side of, on ramps testing the emmisions output.

Tom did say at bolerama this year that the Jubilee got its start as trailer meant for a cigarette company to use for it's product demonstrations at public events. Perhaps it was easier to make a whole new trailer than modify an existing one.

The doors,tire holder and bumper mods appear to be the same as the trailer David pointed out in post #7 above.

I wonder what years these are listed as being. Would they be during the time Trillium was producing or after with someone modifying a mold?

No logo on either of them. Could be after Trillium went belly up.

More pics

It is for sure fiberglass as it has a ding and you can see the fibres and the inside is just like the inside of fiberglass.
The furnace is a hydra flame and the 3 vents are - furnace, fan above stove top and one that doesn't appear on the inside so it is a mystery!
Apparently someone offered $2800 and they refused.
Couldn't see any identifying trailer info anywhere.
