If that's a serious offer, Laura, I'd pay your brother bonus money to do so. This is the first time I've ever been serious about wanting a second trailer for the family....even if the hitch needs welding, I think this is a bargain!

P.M./e-mail me if the Bro's on board with the idea.

Unfortunately, that turns a great deal into merely a good deal. The road trip, though expensive, gas wise, it still counts as a road trip, and is therefore self justifying, (especially in the poop fly).
Trillium 1300 Rear Dinette Cushions

And likely in the the $1000 range with my current TV. I may be underestimating a bit. But paying someone an additional $1000 to pick it up, reduces this to a $4300 trailer. If I ever find one, This what I would expect to pay for one locally. As a rule, I don't buy any trailer that I can't sell for at least $1000 more then I buy it for. I broke that rule on the Cantaloupe, but I was looking for something I would not be afraid of messing up on. Kinda like a cadaver. Ya, I can really rationalize.

You Go Girl !!!!!!!!!!!!

I think of these as a picnic table on wheels I could feed my whole family in this trailer. I want one so bad, I can taste it, but to get it past my wife at this point, It would have to be next door.
Please don't get me wrong. She is clearly correct in saying that I have enough trailers. But, if it were next door, she would be pushing me out the door to buy it.

LOL, you guys are awesome. I had a bunch of questions regarding this trailer but thought you all (you know who are) jump in. Questions answered Wish I was closer, this is one I'd justify putting on credit if it was local.

I'm just trying to figure out what I am doing wrong. I've been checking searchtempest.com for trillium, but this doesn't pop up. Any hints? Are there other ways to see what is posted on CL?

Thanks Carol. I guess what I am asking is, as long as I put in 4,000 miles as the parameter, will all the CL listings show up? Or, is there a better search engine than searchtempest for finding these listings?

Lora, Searchtemp pulled it up for me but as always a lot has has to do with what terms you use inside the What? Would also like to hear what terms folks are using on their search with tempest.

I normally just check in at Fiberglass-rv-4sale.com as they seem to do all the work for us by picking up & posting most of the Craiglist listings & others. When looking for a specific trailer I would search Craiglist directly in the Cities I am willing to travel daily.

I usually use the term Trillium, see what comes up, then the word Scamp. It may have just been a delay the first time I tried it.
I also check FGrv 4 sale.
