Trillium For Sale in Alberta on Kijiji

Hi guys - just noticed a new posting for a 1976 Trillium on Kijiji. Looks like a good deal, not sure. Not a big project for some of you amazing people!

Hahahaha, David, I knew you would be curious. It is posted on Kijiji, Alberta. I'm pretty sure it said it was in Wabamun. They were only asking $1,500 and supposedly minor damage on outside, mint on the inside. However, their idea of mint and mine are a little different. Still, it looked nice. Sorry, I don't know how to post the link. It was only posted today.

Oh, you mean this one!

CANADA - 1979 - Trillium - 1300 - $1500

I like it. I would like to find one that never had a fridge, and therefore still has the road side logo, but with every other option, (shelves, heater, kitchen window, door window). Then I'd put an electric fridge in it.
Actually I especially like the gel-coat colours. I call it cantaloupe, (sp?).

I just wish they had taken a picture with the furnace in it.

It won't last long, and the negotiations with my wife would just take too long. If it were actually in Calgary, it would be in my driveway.

OK, you talked me into it. I just sent the response to the ad..... I'm gona get in trouble.

Ha! Should have known!

I should have known you would source it out before anyone else! It didn't look like a 17' to me either, and some other "odd" features, but I'm still green. I'm still not positive what year mine is! Good luck hunting David, not that you need another one, but judging from your registry, the ones you find are much nicer than the ones I find, including the one I own. Gotta say, I'm a little jealous!

Yah, looks like they painted the logo at the same time.

I can't believe that this is still for sale. I am headed there tomorrow. At $1500, my wife understands that we will never loose money on this. Hey, there are far worse, and more expensive obsessions. One 40 ft toy hauler, like the ones that I see all the time on the highway, costs at least ten times what I have spent on Trilliums...... yah.... I know..... I recognize that I am rationalizing. Who knows, this may be the first trailer that I fix up and sell, for a small profit.

The twin sister of the daughter I got the 1300 for really likes the colour scheme, but she wants a Bigfoot Fifth wheel. They are such a good deal! In my neck of the woods they stay on kijiji for months at prices maybe $1000 more then a nice Trillium goes for. Need a pick-up truck though.

Truth is, Calgary is like the pick-up truck capital of the universe. That is probably why I never have had one. I am looking for a small ranger now as the replacement daily driver unit for the poop fly. It will look kinda funny under a Bigfoot fifth wheel, but I think the specs are in line.

"Oops I did it again...."

Darn that Brittany Spears in my head, Teeheehee, I knew it was just a matter of time! You know David, seriously now, if you need to feed your obsession I can help you out and you don't have to go purchase another one.......my Lil Darlin still needs some minor work (major if you want) and I just haven't been able to do it. Any time you need a fix we'll be here for you. I even have one of those nasty big trucks and can bring it to you! Remember to get all the juicy details on the one you are going to look at. I'm curious about the damage and how "mint" it really is on the inside.

Didn't think you would be able to resist, I know I wouldn't have at that price if it had been closer!
Awaiting all the details.

The boss, (at my job) gave me the afternoon off, so assuming that it doesn't sell before 6 or 7 this evening, I may have a cantaloupe.

Laurie, are you in Calgary? If so, I would be willing to take a look. I have yet to do any fibreglass work, I have been onto fridges lately.

I did just pull off the belly band on my first 4500. I will be cutting out the steel plates, and glassing over the seam. I was surprised by how bad some of the metal plates are. Actually it is not the plates, but the lower pocket that the plate sits in. It collects water, and I am sure when that water freezes it makes the pocket bigger. Then the next freeze there is even more water in it. Repeat until the fibreglass ruptures into the trailer, and you have a leak.

I would recommend that anyone with a Trillium get rid of the belly band and glass over the seam.

Looks more like a 4500 (15 ft) not a 13 ft.
Kijji list it as 17 ft.
