    Hello David. I want to thank you so much for your valuable info on how to fix my door sag problem and explaining how to use the search on the website. Sorry for not responding sooner but my computer crashed and it is now just up and running. Thanks Peggy

    Hi David - I am asking for your help using this website. I have a 1975 Trillium with sagging door hinges. I can't seem to find the info on this site on how to repair them. When I use the SEARCH tab and type in "Trillium door" I get hundreds of posts. How do I find the info on previous posts about fixing the hinges? Thanks so much

    Hello David,
    First thing, thanks for sharing your knowledge about Trillium trailers.
    When in need of an idea or information I always go to your threads first!!
    I have decided to sell my 1979, 4500 after thinking way too much! I haven't used it since the pandemic. I was wondering about your thoughts about a price. She needs the bellyband repaired, I'm not sure about the electrical and I haven't resealed the windows for three seasons. The shell is in good shape and the cushions and flooring have been replaced. We are going into Fall so my thoughts were maybe a winter project? She is a bit of a rare model as it has the factory front dinette. If you could let me know what you think I could ask for her I would truly appreciate it. Thanks David. Warm regards. Lynda Devereux (Port Alberni, BC)

    Hi David!

    I was given you name as a Trillium Expert in Calgary :-)

    Would love some help with sourcing parts and information if you can help please....?

    I just took ownership of a 1999 Outback Trailer. Looking to change to 14in Rims as have heard they will be better.... do you know where I can get some nice alloys from or steel with chrome caps? I also wonder if these need to be hub centric?

    I have connected with Joe at Trillium Trailers in East Calgary and have mixed reviews on his work etc.... maybe for parts he is better for reviews?

    I have connected with little camper painter as need a tv antenna removed and repaired.... I feel i am pretty handy in general so feel confident to do much work myself...

    My trailer is cream all over but considering painting the bottom or what ever colour solution is out there..... not sure if a gel coat option is better or not, what are your thoughts on this please?

    Many Thanks for your time,

    Hello! I know you are quite knowledgeable on trilliums...I am currently restoring a 4500. I am now working on the awning rail. Plan is to take it off, clean up messy silicone and reinstall with butyl tape and aluminum rivets. You have probably gone through that type of work, so what happens with the rivets that are left there? They stay trapped under the ensolite and it is ok? Also any insight on the length recommenced for the new aluminum rivets? Thank you ��

    Hi David,
    Hi read a previous post from you about the propane furnace control valve. Good post by the way, it is very helpful. I have the same furnace than yours, and the previous owner cut the capillary thermal sensor from it. Do you have any idea where you can get that part? I know it’s an old post, but do you still have the part from your disassembled valve?

    It’s valve PN : RV18AA02

    I would prefer keeping the original valve rather then installing the replacement.

    Thanks.

    Hi David
    After attending a Bolerama in Quebec last September, we started making a list of Trillium 5500 owners. Then we found out that you already had such a list dating from 2014. Could you help us track the 5500 trailers left? Our trailer's number is 55332-0066. We are from Laval, QC.
    Thanks

    Hi Dave,
    We removed the old cauk along the belly band as it was old and ugly .
    What is the proper cauk to use and the proper way to cauk the trailer.
    It does leak a bit.Can you answer the same for the windows?
    Thank you,
    Rich

    Hey David, I have been told by many to chat with you about my Vintage Trillium. My trailer is a strange one, the taillights that would normally fit on a vintage model trillium will not fit and my decal where my serial number said it was made in Richmond Hill at 95 Newkirk Rd. I was chatting with Paul Neumeister (A-1 auto refinishing) and he thought all trillium's of that era had were from the same mold and should the lights should fit. In addition I have a plexi-glass window in the front, and one guy on the Trillium Facebook group mentioned he had a rear one. I just figured someone replaced it but he thought that those were original windows to that year.
