Trillium year? Help!

I just purchased what i thought was a 1973, 1300 Trillium. The owner told me many times it was a '73 however when i took him to the insurance place to do the transfer, the insurance papers said it was a 1980! I can't find where it would say in the trailer, as the paper inside the closet door has everything but the year It has the fish plates welded to the frame where the recall was so this made me think it was in fact a '73. Can anyone help?

David Tilston has a Trillium serial number thread you might find useful. Also David is quite good at determining the date of Trilliums so a message to him might get your answer. Raz

Yes, if you post some pictures David is great at narrowing the year down.

Big differences between a 1973 and 1980. The fix for the frame was to add the plates. This was done at the factory after the recall.

Thanks guys!! Sorry for the late reply, my wife and i are expecting our first child in 7 weeks so we have been busy getting the house ready ect. After finding out about Davids Trillium serial number thread, i stayed up till 2 in the morning reading all 36ish pages :P VERY cool and i learned a lot about Trilliums. I also learned from my serial number that our trailer is infact a 1980!! I will add our info and pictures to the thread soon.

Thanks again.
