CANADA - 1973 - Trillium 1300 - $2550

Another cantaloupe. Much nicer shape then mine. Looks like it is painted like mine. No appliances, other then a stove, and an ice box. The means it will have the logo on the street side as well as on the door.
I notice that the logo is also like mine. It is not a parallelagram, but a trapazoid. Maybe this will help me put a date on my Cantaloupe.

Look in pretty good shape. It won't last long at that price.
If it was here in Ontario it would be log gone.

Love seeing what's for sale. Giggled when I read an earlier post regarding some--who shall remain nameless--collect these little trailers. And to think, I used to get irritated when the crystal beer glass collection outgrew the cupboard space!

You are either referring to me, or Randy Bishop, who's collection puts mine to shame.

Got me! It was a post dated 09-06-2012 and, being a minimalist married to someone who believes an awful lot of stuff may be "handy some day" it was funny. (Admittedly, oftentimes he's been right.)

My collection does have a purpose, besides entertainment for me. I think of them as luggage to give to my kids when they leave home. I watched a movie once called Joe vs. the Volcano.
Joe Versus the Volcano (1990) - IMDb

It is an interesting movie, but what I really got out of it was the idea that good luggage can really save your bacon, (literately if it has a fridge).

So as the kids leave, and one will be 18 very soon, the collection will get smaller and smaller. The next oldest are a set of twins, who are 15. Their trailers need work, so it is good that I have three more years, at least. I hope!

Wonderful idea! I left home with a rickety metal trunk that DND (Dept of Defense) movers managed to destroy before it reached me in Germany. Amazed you don't have others' children lining up for adoption--and maybe a few adults as well. Kudos!

Some on this site have suggested getting adopted. I have five kids. I think that will be enough.

Randy!

How goes the U-Haul renos? Are you and the son getting quality time? I had the girls out working on their trailers this weekend. When I get the pictures off my wife's phone, I will post a picture of my pink haired daughter sanding on the roof of her trailer, the Cantaloupe. The paint is coming off slowly, I power washed off about 1/3 of it. The rest is being sanded off with an orbital sander. We got about 1/8 of the paint off this weekend. Since we are going to paint, sanding is kinda killing two birds with one stone.

I thought that you weren't allowed to be in the referrals section. I am still allowed to shop, but I am restricted to buying a parts 1300, for less then $700. I need a frame. A kitchen window would rock too. I have a very specific type of trailer that I need, one I can't save. I made an offer on this unit:
trillium 1300 - Oakville / Halton Region Travel Trailers, Campers For Sale - Kijiji Oakville / Halton Region Canada.

Clearly, the seller has unrealistic expectations on the price, and it's too far away. I will be in Ontario this summer to pick up my second 4500, it's possible that I could go pick it up while I am there. I guess I could leave it at my dad's place. Then tow the Cantaloupe there in the summer of 2014. I would change out the frame while I am there. Come back with the the finished Cantaloupe.

This all sounds very unlikely, and it doesn't have a kitchen window.

Love the hair.....The U-haul project's are going very very slow all work stopped this summer when it got so stinking hot..Now it's cooled down my son's been really busy and now Teal season has opened and I'm busy duck hunting..One thing they pretty much hold thier value and we are not in no kind of a race to finish them right now...Got one sanded down primed ready for paint and the other one is used for storage...
