http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...IT&viewitem=

This little trailer is in good shape and is ready to go camping. It sleeps 3, the table makes into a nice size bed for two. Cushions at the table are brand new, the cushion on the front couch is in need of recovering. It has new vinyl flooring that has the look of wood. It has Coleman mach series rooftop air conditioning that works great and a Fantastic 3-speed reversible vent fan w/thermastat. All the windows and screens are in good working condition. Has a rock guard over the front window, that lifts when camping. Has working microwave installed. The water system and small sink are in place and working fine with the exception of the manual hand pump(which may need either primed or rebuilt). Factory three way refigerator in place, it could possibly work, we have not tested it, the frame on the refrigerator is badly rusted, it will need replaced. This little camper is made of fiberglass and is very compact and lightweight.It is similiar to a Scamp, Cassita or Burro. It is 13 ft. long including the tongue. It is not perfect ( 33 years old )and could still use a little T.L.C. but is very presentable and usable as is. The frame is solid though it does have some surface rust (see pic. of front tongue) but nothing major. The tires are nearly new and it has a rear mounted "temporary use" spare tire on the rear bumper that is usable.There are factory leveling jacks mounted on the rear bumper. The towing lights are in working order and it has a flat 4way standard plug. All the Interior DC lights as well as the exterior DC "porch light" are in working order they run off the 110v when the trailer is plugged in or off the 12v battery when camping "off grid". There is a 110v ac to 12v dc power converter that runs the lights and charges the battery when plugged in to 110v power. All the 110v outlets work and there is a working outdoor switchable 2 plug outlet on the exterior by the door. The two burner Propane cook top works fine and there is still propane in the newer style single tank on the front of the trailer.

The reciever accepts a 1 7/8" ball

The exterior of the trailer has been painted a medium grey color.It is approximately 8.5 ft tall including air-conditioner and about 5' 8" wide at the widest point.

Located in Central Florida.

Camper is sold in as-is condition.

Low reserve

Trailer: Trillium 13 ft
Posts: 36
Has anyone seen the recent listing of the Trillium on Ebay? I was wondering if someone was close to Winter Haven and had seen the trailer in person. I am bidding on it; but am feeling a little uncertain about purchasing something without seeing it first. It seems to be a good deal; but not sure. I am a novice to fiberglass trailers; but it seems the Trillium are nice sound ones.

Can anyone comment of the condition of this trailer?

Nancy,
I live up here in Michigan. I have a passion for Trillium's in general. I feel they are the
"Rolls Royce" of the fiberglass world. I owned 3 at once 2 years ago. I still own my 1978 Trillium 4500 Deluxe ( 15 Footer). I seen this one when 1st posted. I sold 4 on ebay motors. This guy had such a "Crazy Low Reserve" that has been met already. This is excellent for you. What is your ebay name? If you get it for $3,500 or less it is a real bargain. If it was'nt painted I would pay as much as $4,500 to $5,000. With that said, if it gets to $3,500 with minutes to auctions close, I woulsd still go as much as $100 to $200 on your final bid over the $3,500. Do this with just under 1 minute to go if you need to. Trillium's are extremely hard to come by and only you become rarer. So this will only increase in value. Plus with the A/C unit in your area, adds about $1,000 value in my personal opinion with that extra comfort in HOT HUMID weather! Good Luck!

Dave

From the pictures it looks pretty clean for this year of trailer. Though I don't generally like painted Trilliums this one looks pretty smart. Two things I would be concerned about.

First there is a bit of rust on the frame and it's been repainted at least once.

The other concern is the changes to the roof with the added AC unit. There are a couple of non standard roof areas that could cause leak issues in the future.

However, it doesn't rain in Florida does it so maybe that's not an issue =)

Hi, This is Evan W.

I have posted some more pics of the frame before and after I wire brushed and painted it and yes I think it has been painted before because there is gray over spray on the belly.
the photos are at www.woodgraining.com/camper
thanks to all for this great resorce on these cute little campers!

Nancy,

I won't bid on it if you want it. I have kin in Florida that could use it until I pick it up. Merry Christmas.

Unhappy

I'm watching it closely. I hope to be the high bidder. We'll see if "destiny" intends it for my use! :-) Thanks for your consideration.

It seems most of the fiberglass trailers are in the Northern area; so I am excited to find one that is somewhat close to me....however, still is almost a 7 hour drive. You never know what is going to happen on Ebay sales; so will see if I am the lucky one.

Nancy,

Is it yours? It went for under $2000.....that 7 hour drive should be well worth it if it's yours.

Yep
I am very excited. I'm leaving here in the Panhandle around 1 a.m. so I can get there by 9ish and be able to drive the trailer home in Daylight hours. I can hardly wait to get there. I'll fill you in on all the details in the coming weeks.

I am officially an egg owner!
