George, Your trailer looks like it is in good shape. More pictures would be good. Wide angles, hold the camera in one corner of the trailer and shoot to the other corner. Optionally all four corners. The outside is the same Shoot all four sides. This can be done with two shots. Your first shot is a good shot of the curb side and the back. Another picture of the road side and the front would be good. With six pictures you could document most of the trailer.


As a buyer I look for a long list of things in a Trillium.
The things I look at are:
Kitchen window, door window, escape hatch, shelves front and back, furnace (factory?), fridge (inside and out), stove, cupboard doors on closet and gaucho and kitchen, drawers, table, curtains (rods), interior lights, cushions, factory tail lights, tank, battery, frame (square tube?), coupler, chains, reflectors, wheels / tires, spare, door lock, hinges, door fit, condition of fibreglass, size of roof vent, condition of window rock guard, bunk (fall prevention?)


Most of this, I can't see.

Thanks Dave, for the comprehensive list! I'll upgrade my pics shortly. This one is seems stock with some work to be done. A week ago, as I was making up a "to do" work list for the spring, along came this 19.5 Bigfoot, so now the Trillium is on the market.

Nice! The ensolite looks like it would not be too difficult to repair.
The only pictures missing is of the road side, and the closet.
The furnace is a Hydroflame. It would have been installed later in the trailers life. They were a heater installed in Bolers, and most everything at the time. This is why I'd really like to see the road side. The last Trillium I bought had the same furnace, but it was installed so bad, that it was not safe. I took it out. One of the best things about having an ice box is, the logo on the road side. I like that. If it has a fridge, then no logo, or worse, if it had a fridge added later in life, a mutilated logo.

I wonder what the posts above the front and rear windows are for?

I think, over all it is in good shape.

Hi Dave,
Yes, it has the full logo on the driver's side. I, too, am curious about the posts. The plates seem quite firmly mounted and are threaded with 1/4 " bolts. I'm assuming they were used to stabilize some form of window shade or tarpaulin?

It looks to me that someone removed the front and rear windows at one time in its past and got them mixed up and reinstalled them in the wrong place..the front wiondow has the escape window in it and the rear does not..all of my Trilliums have the escape window in the rear..As far as the post above them...I have no idea what they are for....Still a pretty good looking trailer....Would like to see the other side.....

I've seen a few with the same setup, Randy. Maybe it's a Canadian thing?? I have more pics in my album, but can't access it?
regards, Geo.

I like these trailers. The work you would suggest, is it something a shop can do at reasonable cost? I'm in Seattle right now, but a road trip is always a great excuse. I hope you can send me photos of the the things that are probable repairs or upgrades needed.

Hello Patricia, I have more photos in my album and can send further photos to your email. I have not checked out shop rates for repairs as I was planning to do the work myself in the spring ... then along came this 19 1/2" tandem Bigfoot ... so now the Trillium is for sale ...
The things I am aware of are mainly cosmetic ( re-waxing, "T" trim piece re stretched, Ensolite in corner re-glued) The stove and furnace propane system is fully functional. The water system has not been used for the last 10 years and should be looked at.
cheers, George

Hi again. Where are you located? How far from, say, Vancover? Do you know anything about selling to an American.
