Trailer: 1977 Trillium 13 ft
Posts: 16
Hello all. I am remodeling my 13 foot 1976 Trillium. Remodel sounds so formal, doesn't it? Anyway, I am replacing all of the doors and hardware. The doors are easy. I am a cabinetmaker by trade. I have no trouble locating cabinet hardware for a kitchen, but obviously, I need positive latching. I've searched these forums and looked online, but I don't see any that even remotely match the existing. Is there a source for these original type latches and hinges? Thanks.
Jim

Hi: Jim... I'm not sure what type of latches Trillium used but
I have seen some at Vintage Trailer Supply that are the type used on Bolers and Airstreams

Jim, you n I prolly have similar latches. In our cosmetic makeover of our Trillium, try as I might I couldn't find duplicates. What I ended up doing is removing the old hardware, giveing each piece a mild scuffing and a good deep clensing wash/rinse and painting them the color of my choice (in this case it was a gray hammertite(?) finish. Has held up 95% thus far for 2 years now. Not too bad for just splashing some paint on, huh??

Hi Jim,

We have a Trillium 1500 and are remodeling over the winter. I need one cupboard (closet) latch to replace a broken one. I'll be watching to see if any turn up. If you replace yours with a matching set, I'd like to buy a latch from you.

Good luck,
Kathleen

Those latches/catches seem to be the 'stock' cabinet hardware for MANY r/v's. I know thats what is in our Trillium..
