1976 Trillium 13' (Parksville, BC) $4900

A change in health forces the sale of our Trillium. I never did get all the updates done that I wanted but the unit is eminently usable in it's current form.

I'm asking $4900. Details upon request if you're curious.

David, I am sorry to hear of your change in health.
I took a look at your ad. Very nice Trillium! I am a bit confused by your back window though. It looks like it is one pane. Is that correct?
Also, I don't suppose you would be willing to share a picture of the data sheet on the inside of the closet door? I have a bit of a research project going.

Hi Subie

It's actually a Trillium not a Boler, same idea, different mfg. and slightly different design. Similar overall size and weight though. Pulls just fine with my 2007 Forrester.

The bunk beds are the usual ones for the Trilliums of the era, i.e. the front sofa is setup so the back rest (being hinged full length along it's top back edge) swings up and is propped into a horizontal (bed-like) position by two prop-rods, one near (but not at) either end of it. These prop-rods are set into sockets so they would be somewhat difficult to knock out of the way. (though, I will bet a determined 8 year old lying on the bottom bunk, kicking and pushing at the underneath of the top bunk just might be able to lift it enough to have one or both of these rods fall out of position. I only mention this scenario because I could see myself doing it if my younger annoying brother was on the top bunk, and my parents actually had a trailer in those days rather than a leaky old tent.)

If I can answer any other questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

Hey. Thanks for the info. I have a 2009 forester xt. Glad to know it could tow it should the minivan be out of commission. I'll be on the island next month. If still available I come have a look.
Cheers.

I'm curious about the back window, too- it doesn't look like the double wide setup I'm used to....and is there a flipup awning over it that gives the obscure-lighting look?


Can you post a pic of it from the outside?

Something else I can't see in the pics: has it had the recall-related reinforcing welds done to the frame? (link to recall discussion)

Thanks!

Francesca

Hi Francesca

Soory, I missed the question about the back window in an earlier post...

The back window is a replacement, single pane unit done by a PO. What you are seeing there is my garage door that the trailer is backed up against. Unlike the front window, there is not flip-up covering for it.

About the reinforcing plates. I believe they are in place. If I read this correctly. There are apparently added on plates welded where the frame curves up at the front.

If you still want to see the trailer from the back, I will endeavour to get a shot for you later, once the rain lets up. (Long weekend, Victoria Day, and of course it's raining...but this is the Wet Coast)

Dave

Hi All

This afternoon (sunny!!) this little Trillium followed an enthusiastic new owner off the Island back to the BC mainland. I wish her great times and good trips with her new portable home.

Thanks to all of you who expressed interest.

Regards, Dave
