Smile Newbie!

Hi Everyone!

We just purchased a '75 13 ft Trillium!! We're super excited to start working on it, in fact we start today! We honestly have no idea what we're doing and will be utilizing the genius info from this forum. Wish us luck! Thanks in advance for any help and nice to meet you all! We're really excited to be a part of the 'egg family'

Here are the pictures from the sale listing:

Hey Fred - we're going to sand, paint and re-do the inside. My husband wants to paint the exterior too. We'll see how things go!
Hi Mark - yes, it was the trailer for sale in Victoria. I know there is one or two for sale up island.

Welcome Ashley. I am sure you will get lots of enjoyment out of your Trillium. We have a number of folks from the Island attend our Nor-West Glass Egg Meets on the mainland. Check out past meets on our Facebook page and if you would like to be on our mailing list for up coming meets send me a PM with your email address and we will add you to the list.

Nice looking trailer! I see that it never had the propane fridge. This means that you have the Trillium logo on the road side. If you plan to put a fridge in, consider a Danfoss 12vdc compressor style. They are low power, and will not require any large vents.

Trilliums ROCK!

Thanks Dave! There is actually an electric fridge already inside. Not sure what brand but I'll check here is our progress today so far. So glad we decided to pull the ensolite off because we've found two small leaks from the side windows.

Looks great, you are jumping in on your renos with both feet. I am sure you will have it all spiffy and ready to go camping in the spring.
