Entry Door and Door Hinges for Trillium 1300

Hi! I'm looking for a replacement entry door and set of hinges for my 1978 Trillium 1300. I have attached pictures of the existing items, so you can see why they need replacing! Used is fine as long as they are in good shape. Any help would be appreciated as I have had no luck finding anything up here! Thanks!

Your hinges might be OK, just the holes they screw into have enlarged. Steel Tech putty or equivalent in the holes solved my problem.

Hinges are available from TrilliumRV.com and maybe Outback trillium in Calgary. They are bar door fridge hinges that can be very expensive when purchased from the restraunt industry.

Have to admit, that is the roughest looking finish on a Trillium door I've ever seen.

Hi Roy... I'm sure it's the hinges themselves as there is an excessive amount of play where the hinge pins are. I will try and order the hinges from either of the sources you have mentioned, but that will still leave me with a rather rough door! Oh well... will keep trying!

Being fiberglass the door is repairable with fiberglass cloth and resin and kitty hair. The problem would be color matching the paint/gelcoat afterwards. How did it get damaged like that in the first place?

I also would like to know how it was damaged.

You can get both a door, and hinges at Trillium / Outback. Joe may still have the mould for a door with the logo, I don't know.

The number you have is correct. They had a melt down of their phone system. I would think they are answering emails:

Hmmm, it has been alright this way for 15 years and now it is a problem?

I don't know anything about those particular hinges but they look pretty beefy. I wonder if the bores could not be reamed a little and over sized pins fitted? For somebody that knew what they were doing it should not be too much trouble, especially if the hinges are not some kind of pot-metal. Might be worth a try if replacements are expensive/unobtainium.

I think David knows something about that. That's why he called his first Trillium the Launch Pad. To launch one out of the house.

Ours all moved onward and upward of their own accord... Not saying we won't get one back for the occasional school upgrade.. theirs, not ours.
