Selling my 1977 Trillium 1300

At this time, I'm not going to put up an ad on this site, instead I can be contacted through my Trillium FB page.

This trailer has spent most of its life protected in a garage. I bought it from a guy that owned it for almost 20 years in a garage, and in the four years I have owned it, it has its own garage as well.

I've put hundreds of hours into it, taking care of the normal Trillium stuff like windows, proper belly band repair, door mounting, replaced the Bargman L400 with a NOS one, new power center, LED interior lighting, list goes on and on.

I bought it because I just like doing projects. Just finished restoring my 1934 home for example, which my wife suggested we buy as "you need a project"(I had just finished the 1934 house we were living in two houses down the street). Not sure what project will be next!

Since we have two molded FG trailers, I never really "needed" two. So I am going back to just one.

Firm price, I think it is actually low. I've seen some silly prices on Trilliums and other molded FG trailers, most not this nice either.


$10.500.

Again, contact me through my FB page which is part of my signature below.

Lots of factory extras like door and kitchen windows and upper shelves. Front gaucho, rear dinette that converts to a bed.

No discounts, I'm 51% gonna sell it, 49% just keep it.

Want more pictures? I probably have at least 100 pictures over on the FB page.

7 pin wiring, no brakes. I converted it to 7 pin as I like 7 pin better.

Fresh battery. Suitcase solar available for a reasonable price, although I still use it for my Escape, so I am happy to keep it.

Original axle, still tests out OK, but I was planning to eventually replace. Fridge works on 120V only. Stove top, sink, no water tank, original cushions with new foam, original curtains. I like to restore stuff for functionality, while keeping the original look.

I live about 30 minutes west of Asheville.

At this point, it is NOT advertised locally.

I like what you did with the data sheet in the closet.

David, between your terrific postings and Randy Bishop, I really benefited from your knowledge.

Yes, protect those data sheets. They are irreplaceable!

I reluctantly posted on C/L today, getting a flood of calls already. I would expect it to move on shortly, first appointment is in one hour. Of. course, C/L is the end of NO SHOWS. Reminds me I better go to the bank and get the title!

I wanted someone on the forum to get a shot at it. But we will see.

I too have learned a great deal from Randy Bishop. I have also learned from you. Truth is, I have learned from every question I asked, or tried to answer.

Whoever gets your Trillium will eventually figure out that they have made possibly the best purchase of their lives.

I'd keep the Trillium and sell the Escape. Just kidding. While that has to be hard, someone will get an excellent trailer.

First buyer lacked mobility, so its still available! Getting all kinds of scammers naturally....

My wife doesn't really like camping, and camping in the Trillium is a non-starter. So I have only used it on solo trips.
