Hello out there

Hi all,
My wife and I picked up a 1976 Trillium 1300 in really good shape this summer. We are almost finished with some minor modifications. The previous owner did some refurbishing about 5 years ago so it did not need anything major. This is our first time venturing into this new lifestyle. I'm happy to have found this site and plan on using the resource to ease us down this road. Good luck to all the other tinkerers out there. Looking forward to learning and sharing with you.
Happy Trails...

Welcome, Ken!

I will confess to a little "trailer envy" whenever I see the large banks of jalousie windows on a vintage Trillium.

Enjoy yours!

Welcome! We also have an oldie, but a goodie 75 Trillium. It's the green one, we call it PeaPod. Among many other adventures, we have towed it cross country twice. Hope you enjoy yours as much as we've enjoyed ours. Stick with this wonderful forum.......you will learn so much!

:Nice thing about Jalouise W. is not rain unless windy and coming your way, can leave open at night but just to let you know Bears know how to remove the glass just as easily as you do.
I found that out one night around 10PM when sound asleep, I guess it could smell the food inside and me as I had to truck my water to the site and put into a 500 Gallon tank and I hated wasting it on me.
Bear removes the glass windows without making a sound or I'm a real heavy sleeper next thing I know I'm beating on the Bears nose, he/she backed out real quick and ran away. I went outside with a flashlight and each pane of glass was on the ground with none broken.
All I can say it was a real Scary 3 minutes and I could not go back to sleep.

Welcome to FGRV! A 76 Trillium 1300! Such cute trailers! The "marshmallow mystery" trailers of my childhood. Seldom seen but always a big hit when my sister and I DID spot one.


If you want to post pictures, go to the message box and hit "Go Advanced" below, then push the paperclip icon and browse your photos and upload them. You can only do so many in one post...


If you'll identify what we're looking at, it helps us.



Happy trails and welcome!

:I will work at getting a few of those Puffins up for all to see.
One of our friends was there the year before us and a Puffin landed right at his feet, what a Picture that makes, I said photo Shop and he said no it was God's truth that the little guy landed where it did and his Wife got the shot.

: when it comes to computers I can some things easily but loading pictures into what sounds easy to you folks is not easy for me.
I never have a problem removing them from my camera to the Computer, that is the easiest part for me and If I have a persons email address I can send them along real easy but not from my system to Group system.

Hi, Stude, yes, it took me months to figure it out here on FGRV. Right now having lost my previous photo editing program, I'm having a very hard time with my computer. I can still post old photos online, but can't quite figure how to get new ones into my system.


BEST
Kai
