Trillium Door Hinge Assembly

So when I took apart the two piece hinge, one of them had a small "bushing" or something between the two wear parts, only on one side, and the other didn't have any at all. Is there supposed to be a bushing or something on either side of the hinge to wear?

It was basically a very thin washer. I went and purchased 4 mylar washers of the same size (had to modify slightly) and installed those, they should work well.

The spare I purchased came with two thin metal washers.

This is a picture of the existing door hinge on my very old Trillium



Doesn't look like any washers at all!!!

Thank you both. Mine is more similar to P. Raz (I actually answered my own question by reviewing your thread again and seeing the picture) than the other one. There is definitely supposed to be super thin washers. I went with mylar, because it was the only thing available and it should provide the adequate support.

You drive the pin up from the bottom.

The ones on mine are definitely what you should be seeing.

In my trailer's dark and secret past, someone has obviously just scrapped the originals and put a couple of lumberyard "T" strap hinges on.

This has caused the shell and door to change shape and not work correctly.

I will remedy this somehow, just haven't got to that part yet.

As suggested you drive the pinout. It is held in place by spines just below the head. To replace the hinge I would leave it intact, duct tape the door in place and remove the 6 screws. The hinges are a Kason #39 freezer hinge with a 3/8" offset. They are still made but hard to find. In Canada, I would contact Trillium Outback in Calgary. Be aware on some Trilliums the screws screw into a block of wood on the trailer body side. Unfortunately over the years this wood rots.

Also, there is a flaw in the mold. No matter how hard you try, the door will never align properly. The raised band on the door can not be aligned with the raised band on the trailer. That one has driven a lot of folks crazy. Good luck, Raz

Thanks for the info . I have new hinges from Trillium outback. I did not know that the pin would come out. Two years ago on one camping trip ,I backed the trailer into a campsite , got it all set up and went to open the door only to be holding it in my hands. The top hinge came right off the side of the trailer. after getting the door back in place ,we went into town for new & bigger screws , but could not remove two of the screws as the pin was in the way I didn`t realise came out..
