My wife, daughter and I are looking for a reasonably priced 13' Boler or Trillium for camping.

Hi Jeff,

The market is pretty slim right now for Trilliums 13's. I sold my 72 today.

There is this 1976 in Mission. No fridge (and installing one can be fairly expensive, $600-$700 before install) but with electric brakes. I would say the price is a high for a non-working fridge model. As a comparison, there was an immaculate deluxe 1976 that sold to a member on this forum last month and it was listed at $4500.

Thank you very much for the response Booker. We've been looking for something for a few months now without any luck. Every Boler we find is way over priced or just completely trashed. I've looked at the one in Mission but it was out of our price range.

Thank you again,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

I have spent a LOT of time searching for Trilliums this year.

The small FB market in BC is more expensive then anywhere else in Canada and with gas prices going up I expect that will continue. On my 1976 I just bought there were 4 others inline to purchase it and on the 1972 I just sold there was a ton of interest - sold it sight unseen over the phone in a day.

Honestly, I have not seen a decent quality Trillium under $4500 in BC this year, and though I don't monitor the web for Bolers as much I know on Vancouver Island there hasn't been anything decent under $4000 and right now they all seem to be running over $5000.

There was (and might still be) a Trillium in Surrey at a used store that was under $4000 ($3700). It had been painted outside and looked pretty rough. The inside FB looked good but the cushions were destroyed - one look inside and we passed on it. There was also a trashed Trillium for $1500 that sold in 2 hours last month (just missed that one)

If you don't mind driving then there can be some great deals in Calgary or Edmonton. There was a 4500 in amazing shape for $4200 last month. I recommend checking http://usedcalgary.com / http://usededmonton.com / http://edmonton.kijiji.ca/ or calgary.kijiji.ca. They don't seem to use craigslist in Alberta.

The other thing you can try is driving around looking for the abandoned trailers and offering to purchase them.
