1975 trillium 1300, price?

Hey all,
I just put a deposit down on a 1975 trillium 1300. Curious on what everyone's thoughts are with regards to condition and what they would pay for it. Im in Canada. Thanks!

Well since you already bought it, I am sure you did OK. Typically a deposit includes agreement on a price. So what you paid is really between you and seller. I wouldn’t back out if someone on the Internet said I paid too much.

Read up on Trillium window resealing, body to frame bolts and belly band repair as it looks like it will need at least some of that addressed, which is typical. You’ve probably already read many of those threads.

Canadian market for these tend to be less after currency consideration than USA.

Cosmetically it looks very nice. No way to tell the condition of frame, axle/bearings/brakes, tires, water-tightness of windows, belly band and other fittings through the shell, electrical systems, propane systems/fridge, plumbing, plywood subfloor, wood window frames, etc.

Welcome to the Trillium club. Your trillium looks cosmetically very good. You can't buy a new one, atleast not one with jalousie windows, so cost is market driven. Kind of like whats an MG worth. If you're happy with the purchase thats all that matters. As far as things to check, I would remove the door latch, lubricate it and reinstall with butyl tape. Its a bargman L300, no longer made and very, very expensive on ebay. Good luck, Raz

Thanks for the replies so far!
The frame is on good condition, had the recall fix done 2 years ago.
Bearings have been repacked every year for the last 5 years. Brakes are in good working order. No obvious leaks.
Propane systems all work, furnace, fridge, and stove top.
The ensolite is slightly coming away from the body above the dinette on the driver's side. Seems like an easy fix but I'm not entirely sure.
I plan on hacking away at the windows, belly band, and door come winter time.
The market here for these trailers is crazy. Usually sold within days.
Was just curious as to what the experts thought it might be worth.

Loose ensolite typically = leak. But sounds like you are prepared.

If Canada market is crazy then US market is totally insane. I see US Trilliums going for the same number but in US dollars. The design, the windows, the interior, Vintage Trilliums bring a premium.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Possibly from the roof vent? Thats the only spot I can think of

Trilly Price

You could check out the Trillium archive of sold trailers. or Moulded Fiberglass RV for Sale to compare prices. I recently sold my Trillium and easily got my price with 9 interested parties all over the US and Canada. They are rare, and if in pretty good condition, fun to restore and decorate to make it your own. Take the plunge, you will not regret it.

I sold our trillium this spring for $8000, I replaced the body bolts, lifted the body off the frame and inspected it all was good then I sprayed the entire thing with bed liner, replaced all the wood around the windows, replaced wiring, lights, new cushions, propane lines, replaced the old fridge with a working one. I think I did ok, considering I bought for less then a $1000, and it was a fun project.

Looks like a good trailer

Not an authority, just speaking from my own experience. Had a 1976 Trillium many years ago, paid $1900 and sold 3 years later for $2500.
Bought my 1975 for $5000cdn 3 years ago and have spent about another $3000 since then on a new axle, lights, wheels, furnace repair, battery, stabilizers etc. When I sell I expect to get most or all of that back.
Your unit looks pretty solid with an excellent interior in the pictures (some of us can still turn our heads sideways). My guess is that if you give that trailer a good polish and wax you'll be $$ ahead. Prices above are for western Canada. Hope this is helpful.

I am still in the process of dealing with leakage that came right through the roof of my 1974 Trillium 1300.

I had several spots of pitting in the gelcoat on the roof and in at least one location water was coming right inside the trailer...in my case, the cupboard above the sink/stove.

I filled all pits with System Three Quikfair, an epoxy based fairing compound and then put a layer of 2.3 oz fibreglass over the entire roof. Doing so pretty much meant painting the trailer which I am still in the process of completing.

So, take a very good look at all your gelcoat to see if you have any pits in it.

I was pretty gobsmacked to realize water was coming right through the fibreglass, it's just not something you consider as a possibility but it was definitely happening on my 1300.

Good luck.
