I have a 1500. I bought it last summer in Ontario, Canada for $16000. At the time, I thought I was really paying up for it, but the law of supply and demand set the price. In hindsight, I think I did well in price. I have been watching Kijiji for Trilliums for over a year now and never have I seen a comparable Trillium at that price. Now, 40 yr old trailers are asking that much, and newly built Trilliums here in Ontario are starting at $24000.
As for the Trillium 1500, mine is solid. I had a leak issue by the front window which is now gone. I removed and re-installed to window cover. A previous owner had changed how it was attached. I got the proper butyl tape, re-installed, and all is good.
Mine has a toilet with a door in the front left corner and a single bench front right. It's just two of us so it works well. The fit and finish is good. The maple doors on the cupboards look nice, but freeze, thaw, and humidity has caused them to crack. It's just a cosmetic issue.
There is no furnace
. I have a Wave 6 now and it solves the heat problem economically. The fridge
does drain the battery
quickly, an issue I hope two 200w solar
panels will solve. Ontario Provincial Park sites are all pretty well shaded so keeping two stand-alone solar
panels in the sun becomes a slow dance.
I wouldn't hesitate on the 2011, if it's not too late.
