Hello and welcome

Welcome to FGRV. I haven't been in Ontario since Thunder Bay was Fort Williams / Port Arthur and then we stayed in motels. Although we did try sleeping in the car at the top of Lake Superior. Can you say big, black, hungry mosquitoes?

We also come from a tenting background. Our Trillium is luxurious next to our tent.

Hi: Shelley Brinacombe...Can't say much about Conservation areas. We've only stayed at Warwick C.A. because family have a "Stickey" on site there, and Saugeen Bluffs C.A. for family reasons also.
We're still trying to stay in Provincial Pks. till we've seen every one, and that could take the rest of our camping lives...and then some!!!
This May 24 weekend we will be in Point Farms Provincial Pk. near Goderich as the Pinery Provincial Pk. is always full of "Young" folks running about drinking liquid from "Big Gulp" mugs. LoL.
WELCOME to the fiberglass flu...its an epidemic that's hard to shake!!!

Hi there...I found the trailer on this web site. I was just looking and not intending to buy for another year or two.
The fiberglass trailers are few and far between in my area....had resigned myself to having a friend in Calgary find something there.
I was just playing around on the computer and the Trillium came up for sale in a near-by town.
It only had two owners....no smoking or pets in trailer.....decent condition and everything worked.
The sellers were super nice people...ended up buying it. The Trillium is at a rv shop right now being looked over....picking it up next week.

Welcome Shelly,
The conservation areas are a hit and miss in Ontario. One of our favourites is the Elora Gorge. There you have a choice of boondocking to full hookups. One year we tried their "sister" Conservation area downstream near Ayr after staying at Elora. We were so disappointed with what was available that weekend, we actually turned around and set up camp in Elora again. Part of the problem in recommending campgrounds is not knowing what you want or like. Some are OK with camping in rows a few feet from your neighbor. We prefer to have a bit of space and some form of shrubs / trees between us and our neighbours. One hint I can give you is that your Trill will fit onto many "tent only" sites. If you know your campground, you can usually reserve by phone rather than online since the online reservations will not allow you to put a trailer on a tent site.

Welcome Shelly to the (Old) Trillium trailers. What year is yours? I have just purchased a 78 1300, needs a little love and care but looking fwdg to my winter project.
We have a great Con/area near us here between St. Marys & Stratford Ont. "WILDWOOD" , lots of camping, lake and marina. Ontario has a lot of private camps also. Keep us informed of your trailers progress.
Ron

I'll try this again, John, I'm a techno idiot, so bear with me.
I love Michigan...have relatives there and spent a great deal of time at my Aunts place on the Ausable river in Oscoda.
Can you give me suggestions on good places to camp in Michigan?

Hey Ron, asked you to be my friend....hope that's cool. The old trillium owners have to stick together....besides, everyone knows that they built things better back in the day. I'm even thinking of dressing up in 70's style to match my trailer when camping. A 70's theme rally would be cool, especially if there was a dj spinning records of all the great music. All the best, Shelley

Hi Shelley
Friends we are. The wife and I have been camping since the 1960's. Had a soft top camper for 20 odd yrs, then a hardtop till last year, sold it (set up getting too much) got the itch again and "green grape" it is !
Still not sure how this site works as to placing photo and contact messages but learning.
Ron

Thanks for your reply...don't think that the CA area was too damaged by the tornado...most damage in downtown Goderich.
Thinking about doing a road trip (sans trailer) to check it out and jot down some good site numbers.
I'll let everyone know how it goes.

Hi Ron: just learning how to navigate this site as well. I started camping as a kid with the neighbors and their pop-up. As an adult, did a lot of tent camping in Algonquin. moved up to buying a log home in Huntsville, Ontario.
Sold the cottage a couple of years ago and have been missing the north ever since.
Since I have a bad back, figured that tenting is a thing of the past, so bought the trillium.
I can't believe the excitement and love that people have for these little trailers.
It's going to be a learning experience, but I'm sure I'll struggle thru'
All the best. Shelley
