soon to be owner of a 77 13' Trillium

Hi All
What a terrific find this site is. I am sure that this info is on here somewhere but I could not find it: how long can a person expect a well-cared-for Trillium to last? We're looking at a 1977 13' Trillium for $5500 which seems high compared to other listings I've seen, but it's nearby to us and it looks to be in pretty great shape. I looked at the buyer's checklist and all looked good. But I am wondering how long a trailer this old can last if we continue to care for it and keep it in the garage...or what if we can't fit it in our garage? Will it be OK outside undercover? Any help is appreciated.
It's definitely in need of shining up and dusting off, but other sections of this site have offered great advice about the cosmetics.
Thanks a million!

Patty, molded fiberglass trailers can last generations. My 23 year old Scamp will probably go to my daughter someday. Just like anything, it's about maintenance. If items are taken care of quickly, rather than delayed, there's no reason they won't last forever...

Welcome to FiberglassRV, we're glad you found us!
