Hey guys....I will decide today wich one of a Trilium 5500 or a BOler 17FT I will buy...of course there will have the general look or condition of the trailer but since I never own or see closely neither one of them, if you would have the choice, wich model would you choose and for what reason considering that in every one of them, I would have to built a bunk bed. For the moment, I will let the one from Saskatchewan aside.....

Isabelle, it looks like you have a lot of options with the Shawinigan 5500. I think bunks wouldn't be a problem, either permanent like in the brochure, or you could secure anything to the base, even a portable table as long as it could hold the weight.
What fun!

The buyers check list will help you know what to look for and compare the two trailers:

Thank you Ruth, it is the one that I like the most also...but I have to admit that I prefer the Boler exterieur )) I will have to check and put my emotions on the side and take the best one....I saw an old add where the guy had built in a second over head bdouble bed over the gaucho that he left on pkace as aanother double bed...I will see if we could make one in the Trillium...

HO thanks I didn't saw this...My god, there is so much things on this forum, I'm lost

Thanks to all of you...

The Boler is in Blainville so my brother could go and see. With that list, it will help. As for the one in Shawinigan, I will have to see on the camping forum if somebody can go for me otherwise, I will manage to visit my folks in Trois-Rivières (30 minutes from Shawi) and go check...

I know what made me decide between a Boler and a Trillium was the head room....My husband could stand up straight in the Trillium and had to duck in the Boler.....Might want to check the head room clearances as ducking everytime you go into the trailer gets tiresome.....Good luck with your search and I'm sure the right trailer will present it's self

It should be noted that one of the dinettes on the 5500, when set up as a bed is over 7 foot long. Depending on the age of you kids, they could possibly sleep four to a bed, with their heads to the outside and their feet in the middle.

Also, the Scamp layout 7 comes with beds for 5. I don't see any reason why the side dinette could not be set up as a gaucho. Then the trailer could sleep 6. It still would have a closet and a small kitchen. I got a quote last year for a new one, they were in the $11000 range.

The Trillium 5500 you were looking at is a 1980, that makes it 32 years old. How old does he need it to be? He will have to modify the bunks.

Just to confuse you more, some Scamp 5th wheels will sleep 6 based on the layout. But they are designed for the small pickups that rarely fit 6, and if it does it is not usually comfortable for extended trips.

HAHAHAH Roy, sorry I didnT express myself correctly. I should've said one that HAS to be redone (except for the body)....But I don't want that because I won't be able to use it NOWWWW. I dwould like one that I can use BUT, that we would be able to slowly, regularely cahnge somethings. For the 5th wheels, I knew it was existing...but didin't know it cold sleep 6. We actually have a sierra 98 (see, we like old things ) when we go camping. With the trunk, it is easier to bring everything, and also the bikes. It is a 2 doors, but it seats 6, for now, confortably. But I don't want a 5th wheels....don't want another attach, and don't want to loose my trunk.

I should have put my new topic here
When buyingan old Boler Exterior fiber??

But I still have a question, I found an old one just on my street that is in the back of the garden. Does the yellow, old exterior is the real originale color or was it white and yellowed with time?
