We haven't posted on here in quite some time but are hoping for some input on selling our Trillium.

We have made two camping trips in our Trill and have decided that it is just too small for us. We are going to be selling it and are not sure what is a fair asking price.

The good: New three burner cook top, new blinds, new battery, all new 12v lights and a new 110 light and new propane tank that is full. I also think that I am going to throw in the bedding and rugs that we purchased for the trailer as they make the Trill even cuter.

The not-so-good: Three-way fridge that only works well on 110, missing a couple pieces of seam tape, cushions are clean and comfortable but previous owner did cheap-o cover job, back window leaks when we have washed it, has a couple of small dings on the outside and the gel coat has hairline cracks in it.

We live in Longview and one guy is looking at it tonight. When we told him we were ASKING $3,000, he about choked.

Any opinions would be most helpful.

You don't think that he thought was cheap ?

He needs to go do a "completed listings" search on Ebay for Scamps, Casita, etc. Some of them are going very high.
Even that Casita, with the torn up inside, had a $2950 bid on it, last time I looked. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...fault/ohmy.gif
It is 16' though, but that takes a larger TV !!

LOL! No, I don't think it was because he thought it was cheap. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...default/52.gif

Any other thoughts would be great (even if someone wants to tell us we are asking too much). http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...ault/winky.gif

From just your description, and not seeing photos.. taking everything you say in my minds eye..

$3500.

There isn't any major repair work there to be done, maybe the fridge fix, but.. who knows?

Window leaks are.. window leaks and every trailer gets them. Unless it's been allowed to ruin the inside, it should just be routine to find them WITH them, or to expect to have to fix one soon.

Nothing you have described should be a deterant for anyone that knows these. It all sounds quite good, actually.

I've just checked what were asking prices for Trillium and Boler around 1975 and in good conditions and they range around 4,500 + CDN$. That's valid for Quebec. Many Trillium 4500 to be sold around 5,500 CDN$. Some well updated and renovated (whatever is the size) in the 6,000-7,000 CDN$.

Update: The potential buyer came over last night and looked it over thoroughly. Let's just say that after looking at it, he didn't complain about the price again. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...default/14.gif He is going to talk to the wife about it so we have our fingers crossed. If he isn't interested, we might just take Gina's advice and list it for $3,500 and see if we have any takers. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...ault/winky.gif

About a month ago, I paid close to $4000 for a 74 Trillium in pretty good shape. Everything worked except a faucet and some lights. Based on ebay, I think it was a fair, if high, price. I really like the unit - it has a front toilet area like a shower stall and I enjoy the full stand up head room. I had a mini motorhome that had standup room only in the kitchen area and I didn't like it.

Even with the $$ diff. you're priced a little on the low side even for a real fixer-upper, IMHO http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st.../default/7.gif http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st.../default/7.gif

. . . . . .
So, what's next?

Upgrade to perhaps a 16 - 17 ft?

Bigfoot 25?

Airstream (or equiv.) 25 ft or larger?

Fifth wheel?

Motor Home?

or do you have a lead on a Bonair Oxygen?

There is no egg in our future. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...fault/ohmy.gif We are looking for a 19-23 foot trailer with a toilet, shower, full-size bed and LOTS of storage. We thought we could do a FGRV but realized we need more room (and a toilet and shower).

I love these little eggs but are just too small for us. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...default/52.gif

Guess your next new trailer could be a Bigfoot FGRV....Benny

I love the Bigfoots but can't afford one.

I hear you. That's why we haven't sold our 25ft Avion. It has those amenities and it is also well insulated.

The downside is it is larger, heavier, more cumbersome and takes more fuel. With our diesel Jimmy towing the Scamp, we get 18 to 19 MPG, with the Avion it drops to about 15 to 16 MPG. That's not enough to break the bank, but . . . . . the jury's still out.
