No shortage of kitty hair here... The wife brushes them daily!

Hi Rick... To be honest, I can't remember how it ended up in that condition... it's been like that for as long as I can remember, but not like that when my dad originally got it back in the 80s...

Thanks Donna! Now I just need to figure out what offset I have! Any ideas?

I believe the offset is 3/8".

David Tilston is correct. I've captured these paint codes for Trillium repairs. NO guarantee you will get a perfect match, due to UV (damage) to the color of the gelcoat. But, it's a place to start:

Omni AE acrylic enamel, Isuzu Parthenon Ivory #91110

General Motors NG GM 338, White Blanc, 40 WA 8554

Ok... by popular demand, here is the story regarding how my trailer door ended up in the condition it is currently in... This information has been carefully gleaned by my wife, Andrea, from my step mother who has been in the picture for 20+ years.

While my father had the trailer and when my step mother came into the picture, the door was still in good shape. Apparently the damage occurred over the a period of 5-6 years (prior to my receiving the trailer). My father annually stored the trailer in a damp corner of the back yard under a heavy maple tree. Each time it would develop a thick, green, mossy coating on the outside, and a gooey, black mold/mildew on the inside. It would have to be thoroughly scrubbed inside and out each spring before it could be used. Dad, however, did not understand the value of a good wax. So one would assume that any protective coating would be worn away progressively with each scrubbing, consequently leaving the door brittle and unprotected from the elements. The results can be pieced together more easily than my door!

I cant see how not waxing will cause that kind of damage. It looks to me like it has been hit by something a number of times. Like I said before it is fiberglass and definitely repairable. Matching the gelcoat color will be the hardest part.

Unfortunately my Dad is no longer around to confirm things with. And yes, I could probably patch it myself, but it would almost look worse than what it already does. I have zero experience with fiberglass -outside of ownership that is.

I believe these guys are close to you: Rayplex Limited | Fiberglass and Composite Materials
They should be able to help guide you through a repair or be able to suggest someone local that can do it.

Update: I have (actually my wife Andrea has) made an appointment with a fiberglass guy who is only about 20 minutes from here who may be able to repair my door. He'll be looking at it tomorrow evening. Hopefully the news will be good! *fingers crossed* Also, got in touch with a live body at Great West Van in Manitoba who may be able to ship me a set of new hinges if they haven't already moved their stock to Alabama (?!). Any reason Trillium manufacturers seem to be leaving Canada???
Andrea tells me at this time that the phone lines are STILL not up at Outback in Alberta. Anyone have any idea what happened there?

Looks like the phone troubles at Trillium / Outback continue. I was there today and Reese Thoen gave me a number that still works there: (403) two seven two - 3941
