I think all of Randy's are on that list:

As for the difference between a 1300 and a 4500, take a look at this link:
What I like about a Trillium 4500 vs. a 1300
I'm leaning strongly on the 4500, (he has one with purple interior and one with green/orangey interior I think.) Not green on the outside!

I have scoured this site for all information and pictures time would allow me to see. I like your post which explains the differences, thank you for sharing.

Now I just need to get down there to see which ones he has available. I think he has two.

I'm looking forward to this and figure the process of transition will take a little bit. Still have to get a hitch for the car and stuff.

I still understand and respect this to be true. Even though I am hopeful to be the new owner, I totally agree with this rule of fairness.

I don't have a green 4500... it has a green stripe... That's how I keep them separate is by different colored stripes....

Hello!

Nice to see you checking in. Agreed, no green, just green stripe and themed interior.

Hello,
In case he doesn't reply today I wanted to let you know that he had more than one up for sale, so the odds are good. Although, I plan to pick one up this next weekend.

New to me trailer!

How nice?!

Yesterday I made the easy drive to Ardmore, Alabama to see Randy's Trilliums and they are really, very nice! Awesome for me!!

Not only that but Randy is humble, kind and generous so I feel very lucky that his '78 4500 was waiting for me, (it will be my fulltime home for the next three years.) Sweet.

Plan for me is to get a tow bar/hitch put on my vehicle and then pick her up.

Some really nice rehabbing was done to this trailer, structurally and aesthetically too.

Interesting note, my vehicle tags are from when I was stationed in Alaska and the trailer tags are from Alabama and I think its neat.

Thank you Randy!!
Jen
p.s. I changed my avatar and ownership status too
p.p.s. On my way home, in Clarksville was the first time I saw someone else with a fbrv in the area, it was a Casita, about 13'

Thanks for the kind words and I'll have it ready for you when you return with a hitch...I'll throw in a few extra items while its setting here, I've got comforter's, sheets and pillow cases I can throw in there, you might want to stop and camp before you get home....

It is a gorgeous looking Trillium! Nice work, really awesome! Sweet!

I was thinking about the hitch and wonder if I should just swap my vehicle, (found one that is priced right and after talking with the owner today I might get it.) He has an F150. As of now Randy I was hoping to pick her up at the end of November. SO nice!!

! I'll be camping alright!

Jennifer,

CONGRATS! Getting one of Randy's trailers. I don't think you could have started out any better way. I personally think a Trillium 4500 is my favourite trailer.

I hope this is not too personal, but how do you plan to shower? I have some ideas, but I would like to hear yours.

There are a couple different ways to shower and places too. However if I don't want to leave the trailer there are ways I learned when I rented a dry cabin in Alaska. Easy one is to use a plastic tub as the shower floor, use the coffee pot to heat water, mix that with room temp water and a squirt bottle. Any bottle that squeezes and that you can put holes in the cap will work. That is the quickie extreme. The other is, since I'm a nurse, there are showers at the locker room and also, since I'm Military, there are also showers at the gym on post too. !

I'd like to get a 5 lb shower bag though and a shower tent for a longer shower outside too though.

What are your creative ways?!
Jen
p.s. although any of my friends who see the picture I am using in my avatar say, "it is so big?!" It is 8x15 and does feel big.

Jen,
If this trailer is sold, I'll be shifting the thread to our 'Archive' area which locks the thread down. But I've also started a new thread for you, to discuss shower arrangements. Its in the General Chat area, titled 'Showering in your Egg?"
