SOLD: 1981 Trillium 4500

From my Kijiji ad which you can see here

This trillium is in very good condition and a Great canvas for all your creative touches.

I've ended up with 2 of them and was going to use this one to rent or for friends but I just haven't found the time.

The 4500 is 18" longer than the more typical 1300 model. This gives you larger sleeping areas and more counter space. It's noticeably more comfortable for a couple.

Layout is front bunk beds. Has rear shelf option.

All electrical works including fridge. Propane stove is working but have not tested furnace yet. It oddly has 2 furnaces, I assume the larger one doesn't work and would be a great spot for more storage.

Fibreglass is in good shape and door is hanging straight. All insulation is in good shape and no signs of mould. Windows all work properly.

Has updated curtains and rear bed cushions.

Tires in good shape and it tows straight. Bearing Buddies installed.

Retro/vintage fiberglass trailer similar to Boler, Scamp, Casita, Burro...

No lowballers please.

Have erratic work schedule so I apologize for delays in responding. I will get back to you by email. If it's still listed, it's still for sale. Located in south Etobicoke.

Pictures from the ad.

A couple of observations:
-The rear shelf is made of fibreglass, like the ones in a 1300. I have never seen this in a 4500 before.
-The front shelves are aluminum.
-The fridge is an RM211.
-The stove is a two burner.
-There are no drawers, or door, in the dinette seats.
-The gravity furnace is not a Duo-Therm, the one that Trillium usually installed. I suspect it is installed by a previous owner. The forced air furnace looks factory.
-The front bunk is not assembled.
-There is an unidentified structure on the outside front of the trailer, just under the front window.

Yes $5900 is correct.

I am on the west side of Toronto very close to mississauga. South of the QEW.

Not sure the history of this, don't think it's a user install
-The front shelves are aluminum.
-The fridge is an RM211.
Was it normal for these to be upholstered to match the seats?
-The stove is a two burner.
-There are no drawers, or door, in the dinette seats.
-The gravity furnace is not a Duo-Therm, the one that Trillium usually installed. I suspect it is installed by a previous owner. The forced air furnace looks factory.
This is interesting, I assumed the larger one was original. Did I read somewhere they stopped using gravity fed in 1980?
-The front bunk is not assembled.
The hinge is there to re-install, I was going to reupholster so I didn't re-install it, plus I would need an extra set of hands
-There is an unidentified structure on the outside front of the trailer, just under the front window.
That is wood bolted through to the bunk support, it's an odd mod. I don't see any rot so I'm not sure why they did it. Maybe to increase the bunks weight capacity?

I am sure that this is factory, just not very common.
-The front shelves are aluminum.
-The fridge is an RM211.

I have seen this before.
-The stove is a two burner.

It was around this time that they stopped using gravity feed furnaces. The surface temperature was considered too high, by CSA, (and DOT?). Trillium started installing forced air furnaces instead.
-The front bunk is not assembled.
The hinge is there to re-install, I was going to reupholster so I didn't re-install it, plus I would need an extra set of hands
-There is an unidentified structure on the outside front of the trailer, just under the front window.

Strange thing to do. The wood is exposed to the weather, and there are now additional holes in the fibreglass.

Trailer has been sold.

Can I remove this ad or does it just work it's way down the list until it's buried?

I'll mark it as sold, and move it to our archive for classified ads.
