Wow That is the second 5500 FS in a week. Joanne has hers listed FS up here in ON.
A difference in price, but Joanne has the add a room, which is very rare for the 5500. The door looks sort of funky on this trailer when compared to Joanne's - link to her picture below.

I see what you mean about the door. But in this pic it looks more similar.

What I noticed was the diagonal line or support on the door and what appears to be a "ding" near the bottom below it.

Actually, it is not the second Trillium 5500, it is the third. Here is another that was sold a week earlier just down the road a few hours in the sunshine state...

It appears that is a diagonal brace used for support.

It is a turnbuckle. They must be combating a sag in the door.

Other than that, the trailer looks really sharp (what can be seen of it from one angle).

Those sure look like they are suppose to have two axles under them... I think some did. The wheel cut out is strange looking.

I have one and everything looks normal as far as the wheels are concerned. Out of +-65 there were may be 5-10 (at the most) made with 2 axles. I've really seen 8 of them and none had 2 axles.

This one looks IDENTICAL to the one above. It looks like if they paid 3,200$ (or less) for it and try to resell it for 4,600$!!!

I spoke with each of the two sellers of the two Trillium 5500s in Florida. They were definately two different rigs. Wish I lived about 3000 miles closer.

There is a 5500 from Florida that comes up to bolerama every year. I hope it is not one of those. I wonder if all the snowbirds brought those down to F.L.A.?

(I know, it is now FL, but I can't get Lou Reed's lyrics "walk on the wild side" out of my mind)

Looks like the belly band was dealt with on this rig.
