Welcome to the site...you will find tons of helpful information and plenty of helpful Trillium owners here.

I have some T-molding available (cream colour) if you are interested. How much do you need?

Hi WoodM
thanks for replying to my add & so quickly!! It took me over 1hr to log myself on this site, i hope it gets easier with time, lol.. Yes i would love to purchase what trim you have left, i want to redo all the trim, how much do you want for it and would you be willing to send it to me in the mail. I see you are from ONTARIO, I live in Whitehorse, Yukon. I will measure all areas, while you come up with a price for me. I am so excited Looking forward to hearing from you

If you are replacing the trim because it has become wavy, please be aware this can be fixed by pulling it off, and boiling it. After it cools, and hardens, it can be reinstalled. It just snaps in.

thank David for the infor. i am missing a lot, the previous owners put some molding up that looks like it was initally made for mobile trailer molding & it is such a mess, old dry glue & slicone around all the trim edges. I wish i knew where to purchase new molding or a similar item. do you have any leads?

Well, before Tom Young gave up on Trillium, I would have recommended him. Maybe give him a try at Parts@TrilliumRV.com. Or, maybe the fine folks at Side Kick might be able to meet this need. Sterling RV / Great West Vans at 888: 498-8267 – US; in Canada 204: 338-9303

So, from what I am hearing from Yukoner24, you plan to put the Trillium trim back in place where there used to be another type of trim glued in? I have the same issue with one run of trim in the trailer - it is some strip that was glued. I was wondering if I should tackle peeling it off, cleaning the glue (with what?) and purchasing some proper snap in Trillium trim.

Hello JRTrillium.. i don't know what to recommend to get the crap out from where the old trim was glued in.. currently i am using a paint remover knife "thingy" & its working fine, after that, then i am going to use a cleaner to help get the glue off the sides where it eased out of. Please if anyone has any ideas of what to use as trim in place of where the old stuff was... i am all EARS!

Wow you folks are right there is a lot of friendly helpful people on her, so glad i signed up!

Joe Thoen at Trillium / Outback, (403) two seven two-3941, actually has both the trim, and glue in socket for the trim. Not cheep, but it works. It is also compatible with the old socket, so if you have that still you don't need to remove it.

Woodm, does the spare trim you have for sale look like this on the left? I need a 12 ft piece that is missing. Everything else straightened out wonderfully with the boiling recommendations!
