Hi Reece, welcome to FiberglassRV. We've followed the Trillium connection to the Outback for a long time on this forum. Glad to have you as a member. Please check in fairly frequently, it's possible YOU are going to receive a lot of questions or PMs about your particular brand of trailer.

As you may know, Escape Trailer Industries is owned by Reace (and Tammy), I hope this doesn't cause further confusion. It's bad enough about the Outback (out of Canada) and Trillium (out of California).

At any rate, WELCOME!

Well if it helps those confused Trillium RV bought their initial moulds from Outback. As we have been manufacturing some 8 years before Trillium RV.

Reece, what may help is to give us a bit of the history lesson, as you know it and tell us, as straight as possible, why do you refer to your trailers as "trillium". I mean, what are other reasons than the fact that the moulds that you are using are based on the original Trillium moulds / trailer?

Hello Reece!

I, for one, am still confused!

Owning/making molds at any point in time is one thing, but how did the Trillium brand name get so mixed up and why is there still confusion today?

When Joe Thoen of International Trailer and Team Trillium in Calgary purchased the rights to manufacture the classic Trillium trailers, he could not have imagined how strong the damend would be for these compact, lightweight, and aerodynamic RVs. Today, with more than 20 years experience in manufacturing fiberglass travel trailers, and fifteen years as a supplier of parts and accessories for the classic Trillium and Boler models, Team Trillium has the facilities to manufacture to order, and sell four distinct models direct to the consumer.
The 2008 Outback by Team Trillium is based on the original Trillium trailer built in Markham, Ontario beginning in the 1970’s. All of the advantages of the original concept remain – two-piece bonded construction that results in a “monocoque” body that is dust, hail, and water proof, will never rust, and is easily repaired in the event of a mishap. New adhesives not only cure faster, enabling more efficient manufacturing processes, but the use of modern appliances and electronics make the Outback trailer even more attractive than ever.

Glad to have you here. Your participation is bound to get the Outback onto our radar more. We are all interested in knowing the details of each 'egg' that's available so we can make informed decisions.

I don't see rivets on the sides of your trailer. Are the cabinets and things molded into place in such a way that they don't need rivets for support? What about the optional oak interior? Do you use rivets around openings, or anywhere at all?

Does the trailer come with holding tanks? If so, what are their capacities? (If this info is on the website and I missed seeing it, I apologize.) Am I correct in understanding that there's no provision for an inside shower, only an outside one?

Hey mike only the toilet floor plan would come with a holding tank. The direct drain water tank is 10 gallon. There are rivets it there is 3 layers of fiberglass that is applied on top of them making them sealed in from the elements. Our cabinets are glued in with a industrial strength adhesive called plexus. The oak is a option.

I just think that a manufacturer should be welcome if they are willing to actively participate on this group. It would be nice if other manufactures addressed the concerns and ideas of their potential and past customers here. This participation would be very helpful to the people on this site.


I realize that competitive pressures make attacking each other seem reasonable, but it is a no win situation if the various camps just attack.


Might want to get your selves on the manufacturers tab at the top.

I agree with you in principle, however there are many people here who feel attached to the Trillium name/legacy for whatever reason, so when talking about overlapping brand names it is never really clear who is attacking who, or "who came first", unless the confusion is cleared up by both parties, IMHO.
