It should be noted that even though Tom Young's web site, (www.trilliumrv.com) says that the original tail lights are discontinued and they don't know any place to get them, they are available at:

Trillium Parts -Don't hold your breath getting them ASAP

One month ago, I ordered new door hinges and T-molding from one of the dealers mentioned above and still have not received the order yet. The order was confirmed and pre-paid.

Fortunately, we were in no rush to receive the order as it is fall/winter and we are not actively traveling, but it will be more difficult to do the repairs as the weather gets wetter and colder. Epoxys take forever to cure when it is colder.

With the first post, perhaps things are about to change, but time will tell.

Parts Arrived Yesterday - Hinges and T-Molding

Hi! Just want to thank Tom for getting the parts to me. He apologized for the delay.

Heard from a reliable source that Trilliums are going to manufactured again in Canada by a company with experience working with fiberglass that has a very good track record and should produce very nice new Trilliums. A formal announcement should be coming soon if it hasn't already been made and was missed.

Hummmm Seems to me they have been making them in Canada longer than they were in the US Its just that when Tom took to making them in the USA the name was changed in Canada to Outback from Tillium. The Canadian manufactures Webpage can be found at www.trillliumtrailer.com

Earlier this year a company called GreatWest Vans who are also in Canada, started making what they now call a Sidekick in a 13' & 15' - believe this is who Tom has handed/sold? the production of his US Trilliums over to.

Carol,

You are correct in what you said, as that is what I heard and was referring to.

You are better served to order it from Tom at Trillium: trilliumrv.com Search parts $95.00/Pair.

Not sure what you are referring to as "hatches"?

Yep, Spanke is correct. "Hatches" is typically a marine term. If you're Googling for info, try "baggage doors" or "access hatches." Tons of vendors. You just need to know size, keyed or thumb turn, and whether or not you want "waterproof." Pricing is all over the place!

I bought the hinges from McMaster Carr a few years ago. Part number is 1276A52. As I recall, the 3/8" offset was not listed but when I entered the number they showed up. They were about the same price with shipping and they take a credit card.

As far as the Great West Trillium, moving to Canada and going through dealers seems to have increased the price of the 1300 to about the same price as a 15' Escape or Parkliner. Raz

McMaster Carr still stocks the Kason #139 hinge with 3/8" offset. Just a few days ago, I ordered hinges from McMaster Carr for my Trillium. I entered part number 1276A52 on their web page as mentioned in the above post. I have already received and installed the hinges.

On one of the hinges I received, the pin was inserted for a left hand door. I carefully tapped out the pin and re-inserted on the opposite end of the hinge.

That's not bad. I think I paid $55 a few years back. As I recall I had to swap one pin as well. Oh, by the way, welcome to the forum , Raz

Raz, thanks for posting the original information (the hinge source). The old hinges were extremely worn after 38 years. Also, thanks for the welcome. John
