I think your question was how to find a Trillium
? There is a very good checklist on this site. And it seems I've seen a couple offered for sale
on this site recently. We bought a 1976 Trillium
three years ago, so here are some things I'd keep in mind another time:
Appliances: be wary of the furnace
if they are original equipment, even if they appear to be working. Have them and the stove inspected. Also, the gravity fed furnace
on our '76 and the method of sealing the back of the fridge
were obsolete. This needn't be a show stopper, but may affect what you are willing to pay.
Frame: have a close look at the frame, outside for sags and twists and inside as much as possible for rust. Our frame was just fine but I had to replace the bolts that hold it to the trailer body - rotted off.
: Ask the owner about leaks
. On older Trilliums, unless the frames have been rebuilt, the plywood backing will likely be rotten and leaking. This is fairly easy to fix but again may affect what you want to pay.
Door: Check for sag and smooth operation. It should be absolutely firm and seal well.
Body: I would prefer the original gel-coat to paint
. You have a better idea what you're dealing with.
Hope this helps.
