I have a Trillium 5500 with orange decals. I just need to make small touch-up here and there and do not want to scrap the existing decals. Is there anybody who have the exact colour recipe. I would like to get a quart of matching paint. Thanks!

Normand,
The colour 29 years ago will differ from today. You will either have to go somewhere where they use the computer colour matches or find a paint shop that matches by eye. I can suggest a place in Toronto for the latter, but instead recommend you call a couple of interior decorators in your area to see who they use for paint and colour matching.

An alternative would be to get replacement decals from Tom A who has recently posted the availability of parts such as decals elsewhere on the forums.

I was thinking the same thing Roy. A 1980 trailer redoubtably has had some color bleaching of the decals and I doubt any one color would match all the trailers... even of the same vintage.

I see Tom Young has posted Trillium 1300 decals (orange) for sale on his site here:
Trillium RV Parts List, if you click on the icon next to $ 14.50 Trillium 1300, you'll see an image.

At least it's something....

Have you tried going to a paint store that has the small, free, cardboard color sample cards? Most have 30 or 40 oranges. Take a few home and see if any match.

Thanks Donna,
I got my Tom's mixed up.

Edit to add:
Now I'm mixed up. This post by TomA talks about the decals being available. Is TomA here Tom Young in the real world?

No Roy, they're the same person. He must have forgotten his login password and re-registered with a new name. Unfortunately there's no way for us to merge the two memberships into one name. Drat.
