1976 Trillium

Has anyone seen the Trillium on Austin, Tx Craig's List? The person finally posted some pictures. Wondering about roof a/c that I think is a add on.

The A/C is definitely newer than the trailer.


Trillium did put out models set up for air conditioners- the mod was a roof mounted molded fiberglass cap that was designed to provide the extra roof support needed. Can't tell from the pic if this trailer has that asset or not, though the inside pics don't seem to show any interior sag.

side note:

Be aware that there's a frame recall out on 1300's from 1973-76. Link to recall
Fix is relatively simple, requiring welding on of reinforcing plates. Can't tell from the pics if it's been been done on this trailer frame....not a deal breaker I guess but if you buy it and it is that age range, do see to it for your own safety!

I hope you are shorter then 5' 10, because that AC unit hangs down kinda far.

I have to disagree with no interior sag. The road side rear corner is clearly sagging. In fact, it looks in danger of complete collapse. This AC unit has ruined this trailer.

The rest of the pictures from the ad are included for reference.
