Hello from Ontario Canada

Hi everyone,I'm from Elliot Lake Ontario Canada and I'm a proud owner of a 1975 Trillium 1300,I inherited it when my grandfather passed away in January 2011,I used it all summer of 2011 and we mostly boon-docked it except for one trip to Missisaugi Provincial park last August.I didn't do too much to it the first year I had it but I plan on putting new floor covering in it and some other minor repairs as soon as the weather gets a little warmer up here.Well just wanted to say hi and tell everyone who I was take care.

Welcome to fiberglassrv, eggtastic! And know that you can't wear out your fiberglass trailer. You can honor your grandfather by fixing it up, using it, passing it on to your grandkids .

Hi Lee from Elliot Lake Ontario Canada, this is Donna D. from Portland, Oregon USA... welcome to FiberglassRV! It's tough to lose a family member, but it sounds like your Grandfather knew he was passing the Trillium to someone who would use it and love it. Please post pictures when you can.

The Trillium is definitely a fixerupper,but by looking through the many threads on here I can tell alot of people here know their stuff when it comes to these types of campers,I know my grandfather and grandmother had an Old Boler many years ago because I have a picture of it,I am not sure when they decided to buy the Trillium or what became of the Boler though.Anyhow thanks once again,I am going to go take some pictures of the trailer now,take care

Hi Lee
We were in Elliot Lake last September. Camped in our Scamp on the town camp site. Really liked the town and surrounding area. We will most likely be relocating to there in the near future. What is Missisaugi Provincial park like for camping and fishing?

Sorry I am late with pictures,got to being busy yesterday and just had no time,anyway here is my Trillium.I will be doing my best to fix it up this year,the list of things I want to do are not too long but for being new to these types of trailers it does seem kind of over my head but anyway,I have a window that needs resealing,it is the one on the side that is open,I am concerned about past repairs to the roof because I can see a couple spots where it looks like someone fixed some holes and didn't paint that well.In the picture of the front on the bottom left corner you can see some paint where I think there was a hole before,the belly band material thing looks like it was removed before and whoever did that could not get it back in properly,the door needs a new seal as the bottom of it is gone.I guess it's not all in that bad of shape but when I look at it all I get worried,I think I will just tackle the problems one at a time and see what it looks like when I am done.Sorry no pictures of the inside yet but when I get in there to check out the leak I will take some.it sat in my Grandfather's yard for at least 7 years unused with the tires removed and the trailer on blocks,the inside trim on the side that got the most sun in wrinkled but I can fix that.Anyway there she is,take care everyone.

Hi Sandy ,sorry for the late reply,Missisaugi is a great place to camp,really quiet and laid back,there are no power hookup sites there as the park is outside the power grid.There are one or two bathrooms with flush toilets.As for the fishing I have never tried at the lake the park itself is on but I have had good luck at Flack Lake which is just up the road from the park.One of the things I like about Elliot Lake is that there are hundreds of lakes to fish up here,I can't wait until the snow and ice leaves for the summer and judging by the warm weather and the way the snow is going it won't be long before I go and do my first trip of the year.

Hi Lee Thanks for the info. Missisaugi sounds like my kind of place to camp. Today it reached 26c here in Ottawa and there is very little snow at all left. I have to pinch myself to remember it is still March. Good luck on our first trip. We will probably be up that way later on in the year.

Welcome Lee. It's time to start making some memories of your own in the Trillium now. They do, quite literally, last a lifetime and more. Hoping to stop in at Elliot Lake the next time I head west. I believe there are still a couple of 291ers living there that I should visit. If the answers to your questions are not already here, just ask. You will not have to wait too long for an answer.

Welcome

Hi Lee: nice to see a fellow fg owner from Ontario. I'm Shelley from Windsor, Ontario. I spent three weeks around your part of the province, last summer.
We spent most of the time at Sleeping Giant after scoring a cabin. In the future I would like to visit Elliott Lake.
I have a '75 Trillium as well, recently purchased and have not camped in it yet.
Mine is all original, right down to the flower power cushions.
A wealth of information here and everyone is eager to help out. Enjoy !!!!

Two Nine One [291] was the Canadian Military Occupation Code [MOC] for a dedicated group of Communications Research Specialists. We had Navy, Army and Air Force prior to integration.
We are all still connected through the Oldtimers Assoc. and even though many of us have 30 and 40 years of "retirement" we are still a proud group of former professionals. Unsung heroes of the cold war era with a proud tradition that still holds strong. D

Hi Dave so after reading your reply I did some reading on the net and I found alot of info about this,very interesting stuff,especially since radio communications is a hobby of mine,nothing even close to what you did but I do use my old C.B base station setup to shoot skip when the conditions are right and I also use a radio scanner to listen to various other things,I always wanted to get involved in Ham radio but the cost of getting setup always turned me off.Anyhow thanks for the reply,take care.
