SOLD 1978 Trillium 4500 $4800 OBO

This classic fiberglass camper is solid and reliable;we’ve camped in it for four summers. Top bunk bed has been removed for deeper seating and we used a full size mattress on the full time rear bed with plywood to allow for more storage under the bed (the dinette table and bunk bed parts are stored but included in the sale). All appliances (furnace, inverter, 3 way refrigerator and stove)are present but untested on propane. The fridge with all its shelves and a rusty frame, works on 110 v. We have never cooked in the camper nor used the water system. This Trillium has the emergency exit window above the rear bed which opens nicely for mounting a small a/c. All of the jalousy windows work and cranks are intact. All upper cabinet sliders work. The lower cabinet doors and latches work but there is a small amount of pealing of the facing. All of the plastic interior drawers in the lower cabinets are there. Our porta potty stores nicely under either bed. We have cut-to-fit rubber back carpet over the solid fiberglass floor. New back stabilizers were installed last year. New curtains and the single bed cover were made by my talented seamstress wife.

The door has a residential (house) style latch/lock. The previous owner added an old school TV antennae and made a cut out for an audio unit on the bedside closet wall. There is a crack in the gel coat above the top hinge of the door, but the rest of the shell is in really good shape. About a quarter of the belt trim insert is missing. The interior “elephant skin” is clean and intact with no tears. Some of the plastic trim is buckled in places. We have noticed some dampness in the front passenger side corner when the monsoon rains hit in the summer, probably coming from the front window.

With a bit of effort and time this old camper could really shine. But I am retiring and want to camp in, not work on our newly acquired Casita.
Stephen seven for oh seven oh one one six tu tu.

Given the serial number, the type of kitchen, and the fact that the window in the door does not open, I am fairly sure that this is a 1977 Trillium 4500 Deluxe.

Real good price. This will not last long.

1977 Trillium

Dave: Thanks for the info. I'll attempt to change the header. Hopefully this camper will allow someone else to enter tinto the arena. After many years of VW Westy camping the T was our first foray into the fiberglass trailer world and we love it. Looking forward to the newer Casita for longer trips in it and shorter trips to the restrooms for the wife.

SALE PENDING...

I will post “SOLD” when the deal with Larry goes through. My brother-in-law has a smaller, nicer Trillium model that may be up for sale soon. If interested in that or my deal fails... you can leave contact info on my phone (listed in the ad). I will not reply to messages here until then.
