that seems like a fair price to me... it's clean and looks to be in good condition for the age... of course there is nothing like first hand, go take a look at it!!

The birth place of fiberglass "CANADA". That is an excellent value. I would buy in a heart beat. Let me know what you decided to do. I buy, restore, and sell these little gems as a hobby now , and still own my 1978 Trillium 4500 Deluxe, so I know a good deal pretty quickly. Good Luck!

that trailer looks pretty nice and like april says the price is also good. It looks like it has florida Tags on it so depending where you are would add to the price to bring it back.... the listing says Regina but not sure where that is?
lots of work done on it and looks clean

Not Florida, but Saskatchewan. With more snow and less palm trees.

I think I'd go there with cash in hand. If that's 2500 CA then it would be $ 1973 US

Trailers are always cheaper in Sask/Manitoba then on Canada's coasts - that same trailer in BC would be 4-5k.

Nice clean looking trailer. Well worth the asking price but go and take a first hand look at it. Make sure there are no surprises.

I'm not crazy about the fit and finish I see in the pictures. That would drive me crazy.

I agree with Lizbeth. "Completely rebuilt" means you have to lay eyes on it to see if the rebuild is up to snuff. The worst issues with trailers come from previous renovations.

Take a ladder with you when you go to look.

I looked at one here in the summer but passed on it. They can have a weak roof in the back center area so check it out.

Looks good in the pictures.

ETA: looks like the upper cabinet/bunk has been removed from over the dinette bed, that potentiall could be part of trying to remedy the roof sag in that area...
