Rotten frame-Trillium-where to get fixed

Hello I am new to this group. I just purchased a 1974 Trillium. It was a private sale from Kijiji. I drove 3 hrs west from home to pick it up.
We have been restoring the interior, and having a lot of fun doing it
We just took it to Jensen's trailer in Oshawa, ON to have it inspected for safety.
The frame is rotten! So much for honest people...not so nice. Does anyone know where we can get a new frame built in the GTA, Durham Region Ontario area?

Gypsee, It is generally considered bad form to post the same thing in three threads.

That said, you can buy a frame from the folks at Trillium / Outback, in Calgary.

We had looked at that one as well, my husband poked around underneath and told the guy that there was serious issues with the frame. We are pretty sure he knew but was saying it was the first time he had heard that.
I'm sorry that he sold it to you without full disclosure.

Greetings and welcome. I noticed you mentioned Jensen Trailer so I'm assuming your are in the Oshawa area. You might try AJ Manufacturing also located in Oshawa. I'm not sure if they'll make a trailer frame but did use them for some custom fabrication work and they did a great job for me. If they can't help they could maybe point you in the right direction.

It was not listed on this site. Kijiji only as far as I know.
And I am guessing you paid the price he asked.

Well, I have. Got lost getting there. Arrived late. The sun had set, and the mosquitoes were HUNGRY! I thought it was a good price, so I just wanted to close the transaction.

Turns out the furnace was installed so badly, I considered it a death trap. The frame is from what must have been an experimental phase in Trilliums history. It is made of bent plate, and has leading swing arms. I am in the process of getting a second hand replacement frame for it. I go to pick it up this weekend.
