I can't tell you specifically about Trills, you might want to print out and take the Buyers Checklist with you.
I looked at one for someone recently. It seemed pretty standard, and this generic list pretty much covers all the areas.. add your own common sense and intuition!
Thank you Gina,
I'll be armed with the checklist. For the benefit of others searching this site, I found a recall notice on Transport Canada for frame cracks in the Trillium
Affected Year(s): 1973 1974 1975 1976
Units Affected: 3030
TC Recall #: 1980007
THE TRAILER FRAME MAY CRACK NEAR THE FRONT BODY-TO-FRAME MOUNTING POSITION. IF BOTH SIDES OF THE FRAME SHOULD CRACK, THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THE TRAILER BODY AND ITS FRAME COULD SEPARATE FROM THE TOWING HITCH A-FRAME.
Elsewhere in the forums I found the thread Trillium Frame Concerns
which led me to look for this information. Knowing the problems and fixes helps one better determine the value of a trailer.
I understand that this site is being rebuilt since being hacked. I think it might be a good idea to try to incorporate some technical info along with the albums
section of the site. There is a wealth of information here and in the members experience. Having everything together to archive the information could help record the history. It would be nice to be able to find the technical specs, model differences and history, known issues and fixes etc. not only for the trailers themselves but also the various components.
For example, I found a reference surfing about the ammonia cooled fridges. Seems that if there are cooling problems some of them can be fixed by merely pulling the fridge
and turning it on one of its sides or back to let the liquids and gasses move to the right location. The poster said this fix and which way to turn the fridge
was model/brand specific. Do it the wrong way and you could make things worse. Having this info available just might save someone a few $$ that can be better allocated to somewhere else in their eggs.
BTW the recall notice provides hidden information. Extrapolating the data, one can determine that approximately 757 Trillium 1300's were produced a year from 1973 to 1976.
