Hey Paul,
I bought a set from Paul Neumeister for my 1975 Trillium. They were very reasonable and Paul is a really great guy, very helpful.

It might just be my eyesight, but those lights do NOT seem to be original equipment and further may be hard to find a direct replacement lens, good luck in your search....!

Doug, those are the originals. The wider ones (that Paul Neumeister sells) became standard a year or so later. I almost bought a '71 at an auction (ser.# about 700!) and it had the smaller lights, two- pane jalousie windows' and a solid front window.It didn't look near as nice as Paul's classic rig, though.
Nice trailer Paul! You could install the larger lights on your rig. I doubt anyone carries the small ones anymore. Or...you could go hi-tech and bolt on some big LED lamps instead.

Well, I'll be....!!!!
I learn something new every day. I just assumed (and I DO know what usually happens when one ASSUMES something, LOL!) details like tail lights would be the same over the years Trilliums were built! Ours look to be longer and narrower.... but then again I have swapped them off to a more generic/rounded light with corners that more resemble the shape of the trailer.

Alistair, your exactly right. It seams like the '71 is a bread of it's own from the windows to the tail lights & the door handle & I'm sure there is more differences. It just make things difficult to find...just have to migiver things.

Hi Roy: I would be interested in buying a left tailight for my 79 Trillium if you still have one.

Thanks,
Your tail lights look like Miro-flex #340.
