Hi from Waterdown Ontario

We just purchased our first egg a 76 trillium, haven't camped since 05 when we took the bike (64 panhead) to Sturgis SD bike rally but that was tenting in 100+ weather. Getting to stiff for that stuff these days...So we got Tipsy and dragged her back home from near Listowel, she is in very good almost original condition,No front window guard but I have some great ideas -thanks to everyone here- so much great info ... Our game plan is some short runs to sauble falls area,we have some family there but the ultimate goal is a major road trip to the Bonneyville salt flats for speed week in september It's on the bucket list and we have a very big hot rod family sooo cranked about it. Will try and keep everone posted on our new adventure. thanks all. jimnval

Welcome to FiberglassRV Jim n Val, we're glad you're here. There's several salt flat fans that hang out here as well. I'm sure you'll find all kinds of things to discuss.

Thanks for posting the pic. Tipsy looks very clean

Thanks for the picture and welcome, same colour as my 73 Trill. If you are looking for something to do this summer we have a rally in Southern Manitoba from 17-19 August. Many great people and trailers with lots of ideas and projects. Check the Rally thread if interested. Enjoy your travels!

Hi: Tipsy... And WELCOME!!! Hope to see you at Bolerama in July. Now held at Long Beach Cons. Area south of Wainfleet Ont. Last year there were over 90 fiberglass units and great weather too.
If you don't go to the salt flats there's always Niagara Wine Escape in mid Sept. I will be finalizing plans for N.W.E. in a couple of weeks. Watch for posts in the Rallies section.

Welcome jimnval from St. Marys Ont.
I have a green grape 1975 Trillim. At present am working on it and hope to have her ready for use soon. I picked mine up in Brockville. Too bad they don't come availible in our areas when we're looking.

Welcome from another Trillium fan near Sarnia, Ontario. I know you are going to make lots of fun memories with your 'newtoyou' Trillium. Maybe we'll meet you at the Bolerama in July!

BTW, Ron, I bought my first Trillium, a 13 ft'er from a man that lived almost across the road from me. I towed that little camper everywhere for for 15 years. Last year, in a nearby small town that I pass through regularly, I saw a Trillium 4500 for sale and snapped it up bf anyone else could grab it.

Great Noreen
I would never be that lucky, if it was me I'd be following the just purchased (by another) with the FOR SALE sign still in the window.
