Hi all, im new on here, so hopefully im in the right spot to post this.
I have a 72 trillium 13 ft, the foamy wall covering on the wall looks a bit scadgy. does any one know where I could get some new stuff, preferably in british columbia, and I also need some of the plastic trim that clips in between the joints,

Define scadgy.

If it's not painted or damaged, household cleaner with bleach does wonders on dirty ensolite, and shrunk/puckered trim can be re-stretched in hot water. Ensolite that is peeling off can be re-attached with contact cement, and can also be painted with proper preparation and the right choice of paint.

Lee ...from a fellow T lover from another (yet Canadian) site, http://www.canadianrodder.com ...!!!

Your query about the inner linings of a Trillium sorta have me stumped.

Sagging fabric can usually be reglued with an injection of whatever sort of adhesive stuff appeals to you and that can be injected into the 'bulge', and flattened out by hand and loose dangly pieces may need to be amputated, LOL at their roots, leaving a rather unsightly mess. There is also a way to use chalk as a conceiler. There IS an earlier 'pre-hack' thread on these seam hiding strips but I can NEVER find'm, relying most often on fellow lady rodder Donna to direct to the appropriate thread. DONNA, can you work your magic once again and come up with the thread(s) on seam joiners (the plastic paneling strips, PLEASE???

Wow Doug, that's a lot of pressure to put on Donna =)

Daniel V. posted a great description on how to repair Ensolite.

Cheers!

but IF you planned ahead, your T could pull something like THIS IF the trailer had electric brakes. Another rod buddy from the BCHRA DOES tow a Boler with a 27 T roadster turtle deck though...
The pic added here shows a Shay replica that towes a 17ft Escape (made in Chilliwack). The Shay is a pinto powered 4 banger with auto tranny, but the frame is BUILT to haul the weight of the Escape!!

The plastic strips are available at hardward stores. I didn't buy any, but the prior owner of our Trillium said he bought it at Home Depot.

Those tears are rather big, I'll have to think on that.

Is it localized or in many spots? It could be improved, but ultimately depends on how much work you want to put into fixing it. I doubt you'll find new ensolite like the old one, unless you pull it off another area in your trailer (or someone else's ).

Or...... you could just hang your hat over it.

there is a couple of other little spots but that is the worst by far, sounds like maybe I will have to just patch it up the best I can, and just live with it
