A little more info...
It sleeps 4
Very clean.
I have the title.
No leaks (as far as I know)
If anyone is really interested in coming to see it I'll go through it with a fine toothed comb, make a list of what I find, and then they can decide if they want to come.

I am considering selling it because I think that I need a new motor for my boat more than the trailer. These are sad times indeed.

My personal email is : upwelling@hotmail.com

I sold my Trillium when I wanted to do something else. I regretted it almost immediately. Fortunately a lot of the fun with these little trailers is finding them and fixing them up the way we like them. Good luck on your sale and when/if your priorities change down the road there will always be another one out there waiting for you.

Heh Chris, my boat got totalled in Sandy and bought my ParkLiner with the insurance money. I had more fun in my little homebuilt tiny travel trailer last summer then I had on the boat in years...High price of marina's, so many drunk boaters with no regards to being anchored in a no wake zone would go slaloming around us... just got old. I thought of moving from sail to power to be able to get out further and faster away from the people but then if you think towing eats gas, drive a powerboat lol.

Think hard if you really want to give up your scamp

I think you also need to think hard about whether it is right to post here about thinking of selling your trailer?

This is a section for trailers to be sold and thus if you do not post that way no comments are really any more out of line here than yours.

Posting this elsewhere on this site makes complete sense for getting a feel for the value and helping you decide but trolling here for advise is just bad form in my eye.

Wow! I was just thinking about how nice and supportive everyone is in this community ...
So as not to upset anyone else, please just send me an email if you want to discuss.

Please don't be offended. Given the difficult nature of buying a good used egg it is a bit of a tease to say that you might sell or might not.

I think that when most of us readers see a new post appear, we don't pay any attention to the section in which it was originally posted, (at least I don't) and appreciate the opportunity to respond to a valid question.

But, that said, choosing a boat motor over a FGRV ???? Maybe a 30 day course of Prozak might bring some perspective to the situation (Lol)

Hey Eddie,
It's not that one, but it is the same layout.
I'm off the fence. $6K takes it.

The one on eBay must be the limited production, Hi-Helium content, low wind resistance model, per the sellers comment:

"I pulled this with my 1991 vw beetle and it wlks away with it, 85 mph easily it only weights 1350"

Claims it weighs a lot less than the later models.
So much for truth in advertising....

When a seller tells a wopper like that I tend to discredit anything else claimed in the ad.

Mine has an awning too. I took it off to clean it.
