Very nice! The fibreglass looks good, and that is what really matters. The door window really lights up the trailer. The tail lights are original too. No awning rail though. But, not everyone wants an awing. Does it have a fridge or furnace? Does the door latch work?

The exterior is in great shape and yes the latch works fine, I would like to have a awning. It's on the list. It has a 3 way fridge and 2 burner stove. They are a little rough looking but I think they will clean up nicely. The stove works and not sure about the fridge yet. The liner is in pretty good shape but has shrunk pulled away in spots. No cushions so I will be looking for a template to have them made. I will take some before pics.

Your fridge is probably an RM211. I see them on kijiji all the time. If it doesn't work, you can find a replacement. Here is one:
http://ontario.kijiji.ca/c-cars-vehi...AdIdZ403060336
Try it on 120VAC. If it cools at all, it is good.

If you feel ambitious, I also occasionally see the furnaces. In fact, this unit:
Furnace for Camper - Stratford Travel Trailers, Campers For Sale - Kijiji Stratford Canada.
is from the manufacturer of the ones that were installed in Trillium trailers. This one is not one I have ever seen installed in a Trillium, but it has the correct vent assembly.
Putting a furnace in is no small task. You would have to cut a rather large, square hole in the side of your trailer.

'75

...congrats on the acquisition Dave and welcome to the site.

Our Trillium is also a '75 model. Although we have owned same for a couple of years now we have only just started to update a few things...replaced all interior trim moulding, LED conversion for tail lights and new lenses, removed furnace, replaced roof vent, re-keyed door latch/lock assembly, etc...plenty more to do. We have also recently deep cleaned and waxed the exterior using Barkeepers Friend cleaner and ZEP wax (as per threads on this site) and are thrilled with the results!

...enjoy...

Nice trailer. See you are also in Ontario. Roy in TO suggested we look on Kijiji for an awning--in fact he found the one we bought for $30. Incredibly it had green stripes and matches the Boler beautifully! You may want to look on Kijiji from time-to-time. Good luck with your renos!

Well...ours is a Boler but if we're not busy with the six grandkids, and if you are including all vintage fibreglass trailers we'd certainly consider it.

My wife Robyne and I are new to the whole RV thing and would love the chance to connect with other FGRV enthusiasts. Count us in.

Mike, if you could share some pics of your '75 that would be great.

What size wheels are you running on your Trillium?
