Welding up a new frame for Trillium

Hi folks!

My hubby and I are now well into our Trilly restoration and we were thinking of either buying a new frame or having a welder make one up.

Have any of you had a new frame built and can share what the cost was? I'd love an idea of what we are looking at for this.

Thanks,
Naomi

Naomi;
Suggest you contact FGRV 'woodm'. He had a new trilly frame built in Calgary, a couple of years ago. He may have some further advice.

Or contact the Outback factory. Their frames are a bit different, (no bends) but they fit 1300's.

We did, $2500 for a new frame from Outback. OUCH!
You know what, I think we're going to make the old one work

If it includes tires, wheels, brakes, coupler and mounts for battery and propane it seems reasonable.
