New Trillium owner

Hello from Oshawa, Ontario.
Owning a little fiberglass trailer has been something I've wanted to do since before kids. Now that I am newly retired, I finally have a little Trillium '76. We got it painted before the snow last year. We brought it out of storage last night and plan to hit the road next month. It still needs some work before we go. We have no experience with trailers so we plan on using this site frequently.

Here's a picture. We have since taken off the front window cover (louver?) and are looking for a replacement. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm not sure if they are still in business but you used to be able to buy parts from Trillium Outback in Canada and or the Trillium company in the US. Confirm that they are still in business before you send money though. If that fails then you could probably rework the one you have. Make sure to keep the frame.

Get replacement panels plexiglass or whatever. Recreate the Trillium logo on the center panel. The rock guard/front awning is one of he nicer features of the Trillium, and something to repair and keep!

Thank you for your input. Yes, I do plan on replacing the stone guard, frame and all.

Don't toss the frame. Someone will want it.

Laurie, I agree with bill, I would renovate the window guard shown in your photo. That's what I did with my Trillium 4500. I used a thin sheet of cellular PVC, but plexiglass or polycarbonate would also work.
