I am kinda focused on Trilliums. Not being a snob, but Bolers are just not my thing.

I think some Boler fanatic out there should take up the challenge though.

Yeah, but the build sheet does show something interesting that I never noticed before. I has the CSA # on it. I'm wondering if that is the same number as what is printed on the red sticker on the outside. Those #'s are worn off on my Trillium.

I wonder if any of the Trilliums have the CSA # on the build sheets?

Hi David,

After a 5 year absence, having moved "up" to an R-pod and a 27' trailer, we are very happy to have returned to the fibreglass fold with a very original 1977 Trillium 4500.

Would you be so kind as to add it to your registry.

Today I visited a 5500 up for sale in the Montreal area.
Turned out it's the very next one that came off the line after Curtis Barrett's unit above, with serial 55-3320073.

I took a lot of pictures, including the data sheet inside the cabinet. Let me know if you want them.

It's this one:
1980 Trillium 5500 Travel Trailer | Brossard, QC, Canada | Fiberglass RV's For Sale

Trillium 5500 | caravanes classiques | Longueuil / Rive-Sud | Kijiji

We decided not to go forward with the purchase.
Too late now, but I wish I had time to visit Curt's trailer and make him an offer! I was too slow on this one (too busy at work in fact), lesson learned!
So I'm still shopping around for a nice 5500...

Carl

Carl,

Yes, please post the pictures you took. There is not many 5500's in the list, and the more info, the better.

Here are the pictures from the the ad that you linked to.

Actually, I realize that most of the pictures I took are from "issues" we saw when visiting the trailer, and reasons why we didn't make an offer on it. Most are closeup pictures of specific details and not very interesting, and the best pictures of the interior are those from the ad above. This trailer was a "Deluxe" model, but the shower, water heater, water pump, screen door and oven have been removed. The trailer is still up for sale as of today, so I don't want to post my "issues" pictures for now, but here's the data sheet and an outside view:





By the way I've been looking around for a nice 5500 for about 3 years now. Since then, I've copied pretty much all 5500 pictures I could find from all these ads and websites, including fiberglassrv.com. I now have close to 200 various photos of 5500s, interior and exterior shots. Unfortunately I can't relate which photo was for which specific trailer (except in a couple cases) but they are all from 5500s. I can send or dropbox these to whoever is interested.

I'm a patient man, I'm confident one day I'll grab a nice 5500 that suits my taste. I've visited a few, specifically at the 2012 Quebec Bolerama where there was no less than six 5500 (a record apparently), two of them being amazingly nice units (but unfortunately not for sale - yet!).
This year alone, there have been, as far as I know, seven 5500s for sale in Canada and US, and 4 of them are still showing up for sale as of today, one for the 2nd time this summer by a different owner.

Well, I am of two minds on the "issues" pictures. I am a fan of brutal honesty. Were I someone thinking of traveling hundreds of kilometers to see a trailer, I would want to know of any deal breakers up front, to save me the trip. The seller is obviously hoping a prospective buyer does not see these issues. I see my self in the position of the buyer, and as such prone to giving prospective buyers a heads up. $7500 is a lot of money for a trailer with issues. I see it doesn't have the original rock guard.

Unseen issues are probably why the same trailer is for sale again.
