Looks like you changed the fiberglass colour. What kind of paint did you use?

That is the colour when we bought it. I have seen other Trilliums that colour and assumed it was original

Green and colonial white were the standard exterior colours available at the time. Green, colonial white and orange were the available interior colours. These colours were reflected in the serial number. 13-110xxxx would be all colonial white, 13-23xxxx would be green exterior and orange interior. This is detailed on the serial number list:

Well we did get out in our Trillium on the weekend. I did a post in the camping section " Algonquin Park Ontario" So I won't bore you in this thread except we have named our trailer Little Green Sprout.

So the only water line I am waiting for is the Evac sink drain. So I decided to have a look at what it will take to replace it. I put my hand on the hose and gave a bit of a tug and the whole thing broke off. Looks like the hose was puttied on from a previous brake or crack. The big egg shaped piece was Epoxied on so it wasn't coming off. Well I decided time to remove the sink so working on this project would be easier. Once I got the sink out I was able to use a Dremil to cut vertical slots in the PVC plastic and then use a chisel to split them and get it off. So I is all ready to go when my part gets in.


So is this the problem with these small trailers? You just can't help yourself from taking parts off and creating more work. I do like to tinker.

I got good news today. My Furnace is up and running and in remarkable shape. He tells me it will last for years and has had little use. Now I can put my Trillium all back together and put it to bed for the winter.

Quite big, yes. But, loaded with lots of woodworking machinery. Methinks my dear wife is parking outside again this winter.

A may just need a bit of consultation from a local Trillium expert.

The difference between an expert, and a student, is that one of them is still learning. Your fellow student is happy to lend any assistance I can.

BTW, I have studied the pictures of your trailer. That is one nice unit! Loaded.

I guess, as long as we are still learning, we are students. That sums up my everything.

I will definitely give you a good chance to study the real thing soon. The price of consulting fees paid always include a coffee or a cocktail.
