CANADA - Trillium 1300 - 1976 - $2895

I have not looked a many green trilliums, but now that I own one, I see them differently. This is a nice one, at a great price. I wish I had paid more attention in french class now.

Petite roulotte fibre de verre - Gatineau Travel Trailers, Campers For Sale - Kijiji Gatineau Canada.

Trillium 1976 13 pied 950 lbs
Comme boler, scamp, u-haul
Tout fibre coquille qui ne peut pas couler
En outaouais a cheneville
Peu etre plaquer car deja plaquer

The ad reads: Small fiberglass trailer - Gatineau Travel Trailers... Trillium 1976 13 feet 950 lbs. Like a boler, scamp, u-haul. All fibre shell that cannot leak. In Ouatouais [region] at Cheneville. Can be plated as it's preveiously been plated.

The last sentence is interesting in that we bought our Boler in Quebec last year and the Ontario licence bureau had issues with the short VIN number. Even though ours had Quebec plates on it at the time of purchase we had to take the trailer to an RV dealership and have them write a note on their letterhead testifying to the Boler VIN. There were no challenges with the letter in hand but it was initially disconcerting.

Sorry, did not see this question till now.

Nothing special about green Trilliums. I just did not consider buying one before. Now that I own one, I like them more.

Hi Bonnie & Claude
I have a 75 (Green Grape) Truillium.
Noticed the add said can not leak, don't believe all you read. They do sometimes (as being vintage or ( old) leak. Usually around the windows so take care during your rento to reseal them. A note for the finish, I use a product called "ZEP WET LOOK FLOOR FINISH ! what a finish after 5 coats, goes on like water.
Ron

Happily our Boler was professionally restored and the belly band removed, joint sealed, etc when it was painted (and cost a LOT more than the Trillium Dave posted...wish we'd known of this site earlier...but we do love our trailer and now that we are apartment dwellers it's easier to have bought it 'finished'--if they ever are.) Your Trillium is lovely! Bit off-topic but see you have a bag awning, we just bought one thanks to the help of 'Roy in TO' and are having it installed by our trailer guru. Does it remain on in travel? If so, does it bang about or is it fairly stable?

The bagged awning just sits there at all speeds.
The biggest problem is keeping it from rubbing the door top. If you have a rain guard it helps with the addittion of some foar rubber to keep it a little higher at that point.
When extended out you can adjust the angle and poles to keep it off the door. Love ours !

Thanks for the tip...will try to find inobtrusive, non-permanent way to attach tubular polyethylene foam pipe insulation to the rain guard over the door.

You can raise the bag a bit on some awnings by removing the Welt or rope portion and sewing it back on about an inch or so lower, cutting off the excess bag. You have to leave enough room for the awning to roll up into the bag.

Sort of like taking in a pair of pants that are a little too baggy.
