Dave,

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to ignore you! I just thought you meant to get back to you if I were going to list the Trillium on eBay and wanted to ask you for advice.

I decided to list it here first because I wanted to offer it to someone in our FiberglassRV community before going "public." I know how I feel when something I might have liked to be able to buy outright is listed on eBay before I get the chance, and then I have to wait through the (sometimes nerve-wracking) auction process. I'd like to just sell it "person to person" if possible, although I might list it on eBay if no-one here purchases it.

Thanks for your offer of help.

Raya

Thanks Raya! I thought I would have sold both here and this year I offered a 1976 13 foot Scamp, NO BITES!!!! I Sold that scamp for just under $4,000 on Ebay to a family of 4 from Penn. I would get some hub caps to enhance this little gem. 1977 & 1978 13" Ford Mustang hub caps fit these and I picked them up at a junk yard for $7.50 each. Get one for the spare too!

Ah, I was wondering if there were any "car world" hubcaps that would fit the trailer rims. I'll have to see if I can find some. I agree that they make a trailer look better all out of proportion to what you'd think, since they're mostly cosmetic.

Yep, definitely a 1300. The orange stripe is distinctive to the 1300 (4500's have a blue one) and the 4500 went with closed upper shelves front and rear, not open like this one has.

Beauty trailer Raya!
My 4500 had the orange stripes.
I have also seen both with either open or closed shelving.

This is just the first 1300 I have seen with the Poop Closet, so to speak.

I just sent you an email I think. I have never used this type of forum and am a little confulsed; however, we are interested in your camper. Could you tell us the total weight of the trailer and would the tires make it to Vermont. Also, I am asking if everything works. Is the fan in the roof a super fan. Also, is it a refrigerator or an ice box. Can an awning be put on this trailer?
Thank you

No worries, Mae. I got your PM (private message) also and replied to you from there.

Hi Raya,

What made you choose the Boler over the Trillium? I am an admitted Trillium Fanboy (mostly because I can stand in 6'2' ceilings) so I am curious on your final decision. If you covered this in a previous post please point me to it.

Thanks!

Thank you
Mae,

I sent you a few PMs, but I'm not sure you received them (perhaps you were expecting an e-mail), so I'll answer your questions here:

1) The empty weight posted on the sticker inside the Trillium is 1095#. Keep in mind that this is before you load up with water, propane, stuff, etc. I'd figure more like 1400# with that, although you can control that some by packing light, filling water when you get there, going with only one propane tank, etc. You mentioned towing with a Subaru Forester. There is at least one Trillium owner on this forum who uses that combination. I would think you would want to get the trailer brakes hooked up and a controller on your car for long-term use; but that's not to say you would need that to get the trailer home. I towed it with a 4-cylinder Volvo wagon without trailer brakes. I would want brakes long-term, but was okay without them driving conservatively.

2) The tires were fine for my (1,000 mile) trip a month ago. The tread is good and the sidewalls look fine. I mention replacing them because I think all tires should be replaced after a certain age, regardless of wear. The former owners did not tow the trailer much, so the tires are some years "older" than their tread would indicate. Of course it's not possible to say for sure, but I would be comfortable towing it "home" and replacing the tires on home turf afterwards.

3) Everything works (or did when I last used it a month ago). The only thing I can't vouch for is the electric part of the refrigerator. I haven't used that mode and where I have the trailer stored there is no electricity available. (I should tow it somewhere and test that function.) The propane part of the refrigerator I can vouch for.

4) The roof vent is the original Trillium one. You can just see it as a dark square on the ceiling in one of my photos looking forward past the kitchen. The chain that you can see operates the vent - you pull it down and the vent opens. The vent is screened.

5) The cooling unit is a Dometic brand refrigerator and freezer; it operates on electricity or propane. I have the original manual for it in the trailer.

6) There isn't an awning, but one could be added; that's something many owners do. You typically mount a length of track on the roof and then mount the awning to that. They range from simple and inexpensive homemade ones to simple or more elaborate purchased ones.

I hope this answers your questions. Please let me know if I can help you with further information.

Raya

Hmm, I can't figure out how to edit my original post in this topic, but I wanted to mention two things:

1) I'll be driving to my brother's place in Atlanta sometime within the next week or two (good thing I love driving ), so that's another "meet" option.

2) From some of the responses I've received, I'm not sure if people are sure how to contact me. You can either reply to the thread, or, you can send an e-mail or Private Message by clicking on my name at the upper left of my post and selecting from the drop down menu. I'm happy to exchange phone numbers after that in order to talk further.

Raya

I have a good friend in SF Bay, whom I'd love to visit, but I don't have any near-future plans to head out that way. I would deliver it out there for a price, but unless you for some reason just had to have my Trillium (which you probably don't), it probably wouldn't make sense.

Never hurts to check though! I do love a road trip, and I have friends scattered around the country whom I've love to visit -- a Trillium delivery trip would be a great "excuse" to do so. The only known destinations I have in the near future are NY/Maine area, Atlanta, and possibly Miami. And I could easily be talked into Indiana
