No longer a Wannabe!

I found a lovely 1978 Trillium 4500 right here in my hometown...for sale by the second owner...at a price that was too good to pass on. Sleeps 4, with front bunks. They even have the original add-a-room! Now what are the chances of that?! All paperwork is in order, so I'm picking it up this week! I feel sure I'll have lots of questions... and this seems just the perfect place to find answers. Thanks in advance!

Oh! I distinctly remember an ongoing list of Trillium serial numbers; I used it to check mine out. How/where do I add mine? Do I simply post it in that thread? (Feeling really grateful for this community...)

Welcome to FGRV, I'm sure you'll get all your questions answered here. Good find too, you never know what may come for sale in your own town

Hi Debbie,

Congratulations on your new trailer! Be sure to make it to at least one FG rally this year. They are great fun and very informative.

Congratulations! I am especally fond of the 4500's and would love to add your trailer to the list.

Just post pictures of your Trillium, including the data sheet that should be on the inside of your closet door. We love pictures.

How great is it that your trailer came with the add a room.

Letitia...I was at Gamble Rogers State park in Flagler Beach, about 80 minutes from where I live. It's a favorite, and had been there several times in the past in a motorhome...but this was a first with a trailer! I could hear the waves crashing just over the dunes in back of the camper! Love that!

Hi Debbie,
Would love to live close by that beautiful Park....you are lucky!
This past weekend we camped at Lake Manatee SP, but we usually have to settle for something closer to home 😉
