How does this trailer compare to the Triple E Surfside or Beachcombers?

Trilliums are better I would say, but I am biased. I have heard a story where Trillium sued Triple E, (and lost) over them copping Trillium's design. So, very similar. The major difference is that Trillium uses fibreglass for their interior furniture. Triple E only used fibreglass for the front kitchen models, and not all of them.
Beachcombers are significantly different from Trilliums, kind of. They are much more like the Trillium Jubilee. Wood floor. square corners. Both use wood for the furniture as well.

I'm brand new to the forum and am thinking I should have joined up earlier. I put some $ down on this yesterday -- excited to be going up over the weekend to pick it up (weather permitting). It was the cheapest I could find in this neck of the woods -- and most of it seems original -- at least it looks like not much has been messed with. I did drive up and look at it in person, the stove grills are in a cupboard. I'm definitely going to be looking for help to get it into better shape.

Robin, I assume you are in the Edmonton area. I am in Calgary, but there are many members in Alberta.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Trillium.

BTW. The ripples on the T-molding can be fixed by pulling it off, (it snaps back on) then boiling it. No, this is not a bizarre soup. The heat will soften it up and allow it to lay flat. When it cools, and hardens, just snap it back in.

I'm actually closer to Airdrie, but I figure it was worth the drive. Thanks for the welcome, I am hoping to be enjoying my Trillium this summer!

That's good to know about the T-molding - thanks for the tip!! Do you have any tips for the "elephant skin"? It's peeling from the ceiling as well. I was just going to rip it out and start fresh -- but maybe you know something I don't. I'm a total noob and haven't had much of a chance to search the forums yet.

Please oh please do NOT rip out the Ensolite. It can be fixed, and there is no replacement that can do a better job. If you like I can come take a look and offer advise. I will however take pictures and include your Trillium on the serial number list. PM me if this is acceptable.

DON'T TOUCH THAT ENSOLITE!!! It can be fixed (if needed).


The 'T' strips (with heat) can be straightened and reused.

On a side note, our Trillium also came from (somewhere) in Alberta.
We made it showable and so can you....!

We just drove up to get it on Sunday, and I'm in the middle of putting flooring in my daughter's room, so I haven't touched it at all - except to get it in the back yard.

This is why I ask the questions!!

Thanks for the advice!
