Front Window Stone Guard

I have just purchased a new (to me) Trillium Jubilee Trailer. Very much looking forward to this whole experience. So far the only thing I can see wrong is that there is no cover or guard over the front window. Is this a problem that I should be concerned about and if so can someone tell me where to get one?
Also I read here that the Jubilee was only made in one year (1979) but my ownship says jubilee and the trailer looks like the picture of a jubilee.. but the ownership says 1982 so I'm confused about how old my trailer really is... any ideas?
Soon as I get it home (this weekend) I'll take some pics and try to post them.

Rock Guard/Rock Shield/Stone Guard

Wayne:

Unless you want to suffer a bad case of window blow-out, I would recommend a Rock Shield. If you can't get a replacement in Canada. Let me know.

I just did a search for Jubilee and found this person who has an 81 so the 1979 only year must not be right.

Ray:

That was my feeling too so I will be looking for a stone guard. Thanks for the reply. If I can't find one locally I will let you know.

Jana:

I saw that post as well but it turned out to be an 18' 5500 which is an awsome unit.. Maybe mine will turn out to be something else too. Thanks for the reply.

I'm sooo looking forward to getting it home on the weekend so I can go over it thoroughly and start making warm weather plans

The guy I bought if from says it is a Jubilee and the ownership says it is too.. I think it is about 15 or 16' but not sure yet. I may have a manual with it as well. It appears to be somewhat bigger than the standard Trilliums that I've seen. We have been looking for one for about 3 years. Needed the right time, deal, etc to come along and it finally did..
It dosn't have a bathroom or furnace or any luxury items. It does have a 2 burner stove and a 3 way fridge. Sleeps 3 with a small 2 person dinette at the front and a bigger one at the back. We liked the idea that we could leave the bed made up and still have a place to sit for a snack.

Hi Wayne

Welcome to the wonderful world of Trilliums. We have 75 1300 green Trillium.

The Jubilee's are longer, 14 or 15 feet, and are more squared off than normal Trilliums giving more interior space. Because of their squared shape they often come with an aluminum screen door.

Can't wait to see some pictures.
Nancy

YES! Nancy:

That is what our new trailer looks like.. more boxy and it does have an aluminum screen door.. Kool.. soooo I guess it is most likely what I think it is.. now I just have to determine the true year.. maybe on the trailer somewhere will be a date of manufacture?
The guy I bought it from said it looked like the old styrofoam containers that McDonalds use to use for their hamburgers and it is somewhat close to that.
I'm looking forward to posting pics.

That's something I can't get use to. you Canadians,(I know don't group people) don't seem to care about the year of something. when I went to get my trailer, they had advertised it as a 78. when I got there they said oh no it's a 73 or 75. THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE. to us US-ers. on the inside of the closet was a manufacture page with year. 1975. should have cut the price, but I wanted it so bad. He had me and he knew it :yep

You are right. The year is not any where near as important as the condition and the features. I was looking for a unit that the shell and frame were good. Not worried about cosmetics as that can be cleaned up etc. Was also looking for the abiltiy to have a bed that could stay made up and still have a place to sit when it was just the two of us. Sooo the one we found sleeps 3 and two people can sit at the front table. The shell and suspension etc seems excellent. AND the whole thing was affordable for us. IF it turns out to be a 79 or an 82 is irrelevant. I'm more curious than anything else.

front window stone guard

Hi Wayne,
If you go back to Janifer's post there is a picture of a Jubilee just about at the bottom of the forum. It is a 79 and owned by Floye Doull. Post some pictures of your when you get it home.

Age of trailers

It seems to me that the year is more important for stick built trailers than for fiberglass. Stick builts have more rot areas to deal with as they get older.

Scamp Rock Shield

I recently purchased a 1995 Scamp Deluxe and am trying to get it ready for its first outing. It does not have a rock shield on the front window. Where can I get one? How do you install a rock shield? I can't see any evidence that it ever had one. The plexiglass window isn't pitted or scratched. Do I really need one?:conf :huh
Is it possible to make one?
