AB (Canada) - 1975 - Trillium 1300 - $5600

I went and visited this trailer. It has some interesting features that I will post later. I got a picture of the data sheet, but it is at home.

1975 13ft Trillium ready for the road - Alberta Travel Trailers, Campers For Sale - Kijiji Alberta Canada.

1975 retro Trillium trailer ready for you to enjoy. Professionally reupholstered interior along with valances and blinds. Comes complete with fridge, two burner stove, furnace, table, storage. Sleeps 4. Fully refurbished and certified propane system including fridge, furnace, regulators and lines. Comes with new, filled propane tanks. Very well maintained in and out. Tires are near new. Trailer can be easily towed by most vehicles as it weighs only 770 kgs or 1694 lbs fully loaded. No rot or damage to be found. You won't be disappointed if you are looking for a sought after Trillium.

I really like the upholstery choice- perfect for the era/ interior fiberglass color. Using the same fabric for window valances is a nice touch, too. Sure softens the minblinds!

Question:
It's sorta hard to tell by the pics- is the Ensolite painted?

I don't think so. When I was there, I did not specifically evaluate that, but I would like to think I would notice if it was. I will try to post more pictures tonight.

I wondered 'cause the T-molding looks darker than the walls...no big deal, I'm just always curious as to how well paint holds up on a surface like Ensolite.

The data sheet from when I visited.

I kinda want to point out a few features of this trailer that have not been documented so well.
The furnace, and fridge are not orignal.
There are deorative rivits all over the inside of the trailer. I kinda think they look OK.
My Poop Fly even made it into one of these pictures.

Seeing the pictures, I think the rivets could be a very good option. Worth a try and way less work than I was initially thinking. I also like the valances in those pictures. More ideas!

Francesca, just FYI, I have always painted the ensolite in my boler, scamp and trillium with no problem whatsoever. Easy to do and great results. Good quality water based (latex or acrylic, I get them mixed up) house paint. I use Benjamin Moore, primer than egg shell top coat. The egg shell is easy to wash, but not as shiny as semi-.gloss.

Hey is this trailer still available? I am in Calgary and looking for a trailer that will suit a young family, getting the camping itch already with this beautiful January weather.

I doubt it. This is a referral that I posted almost two years ago. Not my trailer. You will find that fibreglass trailers move fast, if they are priced right.
