We are looking to buy a rock guard for our 1972 13ft Trillium. We desperately need one as the rain splashes up and into the window, soaking the bunk beds. We have tried contacting Team Trillium in Calgary but they keep telling us they'll call back and then don't. Apparently the rock guard (oval shaped) for the new Trillium does not fit the square window of the vintage Trillium.

Hi
i had a sign shop make the trillium logo on a piece of aluminum.
the Frame i had was in good shape. and the sign shop said to use 3 m double sticky tape to mount it . Yes double stickie lol but it worked great
an aluminum frame would be pretty easy to make if you are missing your frame.

HI
Thanks for the help. Unfortunately I don't have a frame, but If I can't find one I may have to do that.

Thanks for your reply! I will try to get a hold of them today. I'll let you know how we make out.

Thanks again,

hummm, the gravel guard will certainly help to keep water away from the window when the trailer is going down the road, but it sounds like you've got a more serious issue going on . The gravel guard isn't going to stop the rain from running down the window when the trailer is parked. You should seriously consider pulling the window out, resealing and reinstalling.

I second that motion. In a "Driving Rain" (Pun Intended), We soaked the cushions in our Fiber Stream even with a rock guard!
All is dry after I pulled and resealed with caulk-tape my windows.

Hi,
The window is not leaking when we are parked so I don't know about pulling it. It was newly caulked about two years ago. I think the weather stripping is all dried up and needs to be replaced, so I could also use some advice as to where I might get new weather stripping
Thanks!!!
