You put the bid in for $2,500? I still think becuse the way it was listed it will be looked over by many, many people. Now if they listed it as "Big Foot, Trillium, Boler, Scamp, Burro" it would be a different story for sure. Looks like you took my advice, and went for it. I live Michigan, no way for me. There is no way that this will get to $4,500!!!!!!!!! I think you may get for under $3,000!

It's sitting at the BIN price

It amazes me how some folks will risk saving a ton of money to save a penny or two up front.

I recently had an eBay auction go well over my BIN price... no complaining from me

I don't have an e-bay account. I was wondering if someone who does could ask this gentleman which holding tank is 100 gallons? I'm curious as I have never seen an 18' trailer, by any manufacturer, with a 100 gal holding tank. Black? Grey? Fresh? If one of them is 100 gallons, what size are the others? Or is it one big fresh/grey/black holding tank? If so, might I suggest boiling and straining.

Wasn't me Dave, someone else found it and put the opening bid.
We'll see where it goes.

I talked to the guy, It is'nt his, he is selling it for a friend who thought he said it was 100 gallons. I said it is more like 15 -20 gallon I bet. He has'nt been able to get back on that, but no biggie I think.!

I have a good bit of experience with what Florida does to vehicles and I see enough evidence that makes me think it has been down there for awhile. I'm not convinced it would be that easy a clean-up.

I'm with Greg on this one. If it's been in Florida since it was new, the frame could be paper-thin in places, particularly around the spring-hanger brackets/shackles. I don't think I'd be bidding on this one unless I had someone who was able to do a first-hand looky-see for me.

Roger & Greg,
That is one very "GOOD" critical point. The 3 Trilliums I owed and still own my original 1978 Trillium Deluxe from over 5 years were all from Michigan. So when I used a wire brush, sanded, and dusted all 3 frames were close to 100%. With that Florida SALT AIR Corrison would be a real issue. . But if it has'nt been there it's whole life than that's a different thing. If the frame is sound this 1 bidder is getting one hell of a deal, if it's like paper, than he could be doomed!

Well,
There must have been a lot of "Watchers". The auction ended with 15 bids and Sold for $3,801.00. If the frame is sound, they got a great deal I think!

Nothing happens on Ebay till the last hour or even less.

I was within $700 of where it went with my $4500 estimate at the top of the page. Someone would have won a hot dog and beer at Quartzite gathering if they called me on it.
