Just a side note. Even though we have a non trillium glass rv now we still miss the simplicity and quality of the early trillium models of the seventies that we owned. There's nothing out there like them. Great trailers!!!

Hi Dennis...
Thanks for your kind words & support over the years.

Phil:
Not that much to talk about, Molds disappeared after the GVW auction. I spent a lot of time on the internet looking for them, or someone building with them. Finally decided to hire a private investigator who found them through old fashioned leg work. The website will be updated as progress is made.

We met a number of years ago at your shop and thanks to you and your sharing of information my 1975 Trillium 1300 has been well enjoyed by many..

Good luck on popping out some new 2020 products..

Hope that the new rv's will be better than the 2014 made by GWV. Paid 25 000 cdn$ and found the poorly finish, (laminate doors instead wood, lack in the fiberglass on the top, hinges, propane heater located underneath the table, door isn't tight, blind letting sun coming through) . I still have it because i love the shape and it fits our needs.

Hi Pierre:

I'm sorry about your experience with the trailer built by Great West Vans.
They managed to ruin their own business, + mine due to their poor QC.

Please send me an email at Parts@TrilliumRV.com
I'll see how I can help you. (I'm not on this forum very often.)
See notice below if you happen to be in Toronto this coming weekend.

Tom

Toronto Show this weekend.

Our 1st 1300 build is coming along nicely. I had hoped to be ready for the Toronto Show this weekend, but time was too tight.
I now expect to be ready for the Kitchener Show Mar 20-22
I will attend the Toronto Show Feb 27 - Mar 1 - Without a trailer.
I'll be there to answer questions about the re-introduction in Kitchener.
(And anything vintage owners may have questions about.)
Note that the people at Outdoor Travel will not have any info at this time. Please look for me in their booth.
I look forward to seeing old & new friends there.
Tom

Kitchener Show Cancelled

Unfortunately, It's just been announced that the Show is cancelled due to the CoronaVirus situation. I'll advise shortly on how we will introduce the Trillium.

Thanks Tom
Talked to you in Toronto and was hoping to see the trailer in K-W. Maybe by the time this virus thing settles down you will have a 4500 built as well.

Trillium 1300 was my first fiberglass camper. So many things to like about it! One of those "wish I'd never sold it" things!
Actually the picture is of two of those" wish I'd never sold it" things!
