The serial number suggests to me it’s a 1977. Anyone else...?

Hi I own a 1976? 1300 my serial is 110 1134007. If your data sheet has metric info on it it would probably be 1977 or later as the system was introduced in September of that year. Mine has all jalousie windows and lacks the single large pane as an escape hatch at the rear road side. I don't know when that change was introduced for sure. My trailer is from Nova Scotia too from the Alma Trailer sales in Pictou when new. Check the list of serials on this site and see where yours falls on that list. These trailers would have a license issued in the year of sale not the year of manufacture which adds to the confusion as to build date. Ontario issued a permanent trailer plate also, I believe they still do this. Hope you enjoy your Trillium, I know mine is not going to be sold as I know a good thing when I see it! It's warm dry and tow like a dream at any speed. Congrats ,Duane

Duane and mensi, Please oh please could both of you post some pictures of your trailers? It doesn't matter where, I can link to them.
Guide lines for pictures: two of the outside, one from the front on one side and the other from the back on the other side. The inside pictures I am looking for are all interior features, this includes closet, dinette, kitchen, gaucho, (or whatever is in the front). Preferably from floor to ceiling.

mensi, I agree with Michael, 1977 seems likely. But, your serial number is in the middle of an empty section of the list. Even more reason to post pictures, (please).

Here are some pictures of my new Trillium.
Sorry that they are all sideways, not sure how to fix that.

mensi, Very nice Trillium 1300! Thank you for posting these pictures.
A couple of observations.
Your Ensolite seams are quite rippled. This can be fixed by pulling them off. They just snap into a track that is glued to the fibreglass. Once off, boil them. No this is not some weird soup. The heat will soften them up. Then lay them out and let them cool. They will be totally smooth. Then just snap them back into place.
You are missing the bottom door on your furnace. This can be hard to find. I have one I could spare. PM me.
Your 110 VAC light has the plastic cover still. This is not common. People put a bulb in that is too hot and melt it. Lucky you.

David,

Thanks for the ensolite trim idea, I was wondering how I was going to fix that , either get two sided tape or use that flex caulking.

As for the furnace grill thing it is there it is laying in the sink.

Right now I’m Restoring a Boler which was in awful shape,as it had been sitting in a pasture for almost 20 years. This Trillium has been sitting for the last 5 years or so in a farmers yard , this is going to be next winters project , but I had such a good deal on it that I could not pass up and had get right away.

I have a Trillium 1300 that is 1970ish. The guy I bought it from was using it as a deer lease because he never got the title from the person he bought it from. I was hoping you could tell me the age of it. The serial number is 13 1106052. Thank you.

As a comparison, Sis-in-Law's 1300 has number 6429, it's a 1979.

Christine, If you post some pictures, I will add your Trillium to the next version of the list.

OK, I like it! Optional windows in the kitchen and door.
You will need a propane tank.
The rock guard is there, but no Filon. You could use some Lexan, or get some Filon. They don't sell the clapboard style anymore:
Crane Co. - FilonŽ

Have you any interior pictures? Please.

I'm totally redoing it. I've got a tank going to do the lines. I'm getting a fiberglass sheet and painting it orange and having a vinyl logo made. Click image for larger version

Coroplast (think election signs) could be an option too. UV resistant, not too expensive and available in many colors, including "almond" which would probably match the trailer.

Does the tank leak? They all go black. The trick is to install a deck fitting so you can clean it.

Fibreglass sheet?
Looks like some custom work on the front, a desk? Do you have the gaucho back? This can be recreated if you want.

I hate to be a bother, but any pictures of the kitchen?

But, I saw a different fridge in the other pictures. Do you have the propane fridge, or a bar fridge? The stove and fridge are easily replaced, what is not is the furnace. I suppose in Texas that a furnace is not essential. Maybe just blank off the exterior vent, and use it as a cupboard.

Does the 12 VDC converter work? That is, if you plug in the trailer, and turn on the converter, do the 12 VDC lights come on?

But I am now confused. What is the vertical bar at the right side of the kitchen? Is that a wall? Was this a front bathroom Trillium? The drawer is not painted either. I assume that this picture was taken at a different time.

Someone took the bunks out. The fridge is a dometic 221. It works. They unhooked the gas so the furnace was never tested. The converter works but I want to update it and add 2 more outlets and a maxxair fan.
