Hi Everyone! My name is Rachelle. I just found this FBRV site and have never blogged about anything in my life! So I'm a complete newbie to not only RVing and Fibreglass but to forums !
I was given my 1975 Trillium
in late 2009 by my father, a few months before he passed away. I had used it prior to that time for my Skydiving adventures once my ex-husband decided to end our marriage. So this baby girl is all mine! I also have 2 wonderful children and a new man, Troy who have done some camping with me and the Trillium
I've done some updates since I took it my home (Halifax, NS) in late August of 2010, (I will post pictures once I figure this all out). In 2010, new tires
,. bought towing mirrors just enough to bring her from New-Brunswick to Nova Scotia safely. In 2011, she got a new front centre jack (Old side one just rusted away), new chains, new triangle tung box, all new water ins and outs and exterior electrical
outlets, new outdoor porch light
, new break lights
and side lights
. we also installed a new awning
and rail and a rear bike rack insert…. Last year In 2012 she received new sink faucet and new sink plumbing. Gosh I think that is it….haha!
This year (Last week actually) she didn't pass inspection due to a frame crack and rust…. So I guess this is where I am at with all of this… I just brought her to a friends house yesterday and we are going to take a look at it to figure out our next step. I think the frame will need to be pulled out and given a complete overhaul over the winter. She may not be ready for my vacation next week and will have to resort to tenting.
I will post a quick picture of the day took her to her new home. I know there are issues with the hook up and such that have been since rectified…
I'm hopping with the wealth of knowledge I'm seeing on this awesome FBRV Website that I will have some insight from those of you who are willing to share their experiences with a newbie and her new inherited/sentimental Trillium
. Restoration is new to me and I would love all the help I can get! I will post pictures as I go...
