Does anyone know of a New England area Fiberglass Trailer refurbisher?

Hi,

I live in Boston and I'm thinking of buying a 1977 Trillium that I may want / need to do some work on. I don't have a garage or a driveway or a place to work on the trailer myself (or the know-how) so I'm thinking I'd hand over the work to someone who knows how to do extensive repairs (if needed) on Fiberglass trailers.

I'd be willing to bring it to New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont or Massachusetts.

Any resources or recommendations? A highly recommended repair place?

Thanks!!
Kyle

I'd look for a Boat repair marina that sold and serviced fibreglass boats I'm quite sure they would have the know how and they might enjoy the challenge too,
Good Luck.

Good recommendation but those fiberglass repair shops are VERY expensive. Think it twice if the trailer necessitates extensive work. I've just had a repair that would have cost less than 2,000$ in a car body shop but ended to be 3.400$ in a fiberglass boat shop.... paid by my insurance company. :-)

Why don't you contact Randy Bishop for an advice on this, even before starting searches Trillium 1300 Renovation ? Randy is a contributive member of this forum and a "sick" and knowledgeable renovator who knows probably more than any one on this and especially Trilliums ('Got 6 now (4) 4500 and (2) 1300 and the sickness continues with no cure in sight..')

Thanks so much for your kind words, but he's a little too far for me, "BUT" I'm willing to give words of encouragement and help in any way I can to a fellow Trillium owner... just "PLEASE" don't mention you my want to sell it...that's when the sickness really kicks end
