AB (Canada) - Trillium 4500 - 1978 - $4500

Wow, another black interior. He doesn’t state the year, but the opening window in the door, and the larger fridge make me thing 1978. At least the price is less then five figures. I wonder what he means by 80% restored? I think that thing on the roof, in the last picture is the vent. I think it may be a front bath unit. In two of the kitchen pictures there appears to be a sheet of metal, on a wall.
Since he doesn’t spell Trillium correctly anywhere in the ad, nor does he use the word fibreglass, (or fiberglass), it will likely be quite some time before it sells. I only found it because I look at every add in the RV section on kijiji in Alberta. It may be a good buy if your are into that sort of thing.

Light trailer - Edmonton Travel Trailers, Campers For Sale - Kijiji Edmonton Canada.

i have a trullium trailer for sale the inside is 80% resotred. is able to be on the roads. stove, fidge and furnace worls great. i have been restoring it threwout the winter but have to sell because no where to store it.

the 20' rims in the photo do not come with the trailer. just the only picture i had up close to the outside. rims r ment for somthing completly different.

4500. open to offers willing to trade.

I don't see any sign of cushions. Strange that he believes the lighting will be the big sell.

Here are the pictures from the new ad. My brother tells me that some of the logos are from race bikes.
I am more convinced then ever that this was a front bathroom floor plan.
Not a 1973, (these were not manufactured in 1973) more like a 1978.
I think he is referring to how light, (not heavy) the trailer is.

I was referring to how all the pictures are of the lighting strip, not the weight of the trailer.

Looks like a rattlecan paint job inside and out, and already peeling in places. Fixing that is probably a full-removal job...

This trailer deserves saving if one could acquire it at a salvage price.

I talked to the fellow that owns the trailer. He did not do the damage. Some kid that he bought it off did. He gave me pictures of the data sheet in the closet.

I may be killed for saying this. This may be the next Trillium. It already has a name:
The Honeymoon Suite
The one for just the two of us. The one that would get a proper front bathroom. Not the factory bath room, that's for sure. And yes, a paint job would be in order. I am blessed with indentured slaves, ah (cough) ... I mean children that will help out with sanding.
Who knows, maybe the paint can be easily removed with a mild solvent, that doesn’t interact with the vinyl in the elephant hide, (ya, right). For all I know, all the elephant hide is destroyed by a chemical incompatibility with the paint, and the trailer may need a new liner. Most likely, a new paint job.
But you can bet it won't happen at that price. And who knows, maybe there is someone out there that sees more value in it than I do.
