Latest addition to our '70s fibreglass collection

Like an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in chinchilla, LBM will bring you in and out of consciousness with alternating waves of outer space-like freshness and pharaonic opulence. You can think of the Paris based design firm like a renaissance man from the future, whose inspirations age timeless, yet capture and astound those in the present.

Latest addition to our '70s fibreglass collection

Dragged this home today :D

She's a 2 owner 1973 Trillium 1300 Deluxe. The blue has GOT TO GO, but overall it's very original and complete. Original propane stove and 3-way fridge work along with all electrical, includes original awning (super rare), and they threw in a whole wack of stuff from a Coleman stove/propane tree/lantern, to the TV they used in it.

Super stoked!

Is that similar to the Boler's Randy was shopping?

Nearly identical in every way. The Bolers are slightly sexier on the outside... more round and the tail lights are recessed and circular. They tend to go for a bit more as well.

This summer we've already eaten all our days and would lose a considerable deposit on a cottage booked for August so we're going to keep that, but next year we plan to do a couple weeks through Quebec into New England, and a bunch of weekend/long weekend trips :)

Link to interior pics we took today... we haven't even cleaned it yet, it was this tidy. Also there is no musty or stale smell at all. We have some interior plans... it'll be a good fall project for us.

I couldn't be happier with the deal in the end. Super nice couple in their 80s...owned it for the last 17 years and bought it from the original owner. I think they were happy to see it live on with our young family!

Now I have to wire up a 7 way hitch plug... Thinking if making my own harness as the kits are a major ripoff.

I definitely need to hit up PA... Frustrating that nobody makes a 7 pole harness for a vehicle with no preexisting wiring. They all adapt to 4 pole... So it's either install a 4 pole, adapt to it and run a separate power/ground straight from the battery and homebrew some sort of relay/fuse in there, or do a custom harness into a 7 pole plug.

SO STOKED

Just booked the maiden voyage for the Trillium... 5 days up north in Elgin on this piece of paradise:

Time to give it a once-over and make sure it's ready to go. Crap, need to wire up the CX9 too... good thing I didn't waste my time on the Escape as my above plans would have had me do, yay procrastination!

Will do! Going in August... I'll also post any improvements we're able to fit in on the trailer between now and then :)

Just ordered the OEM wiring harness from Mazda, for $80 it's worth me not hacking the car up. It terminates in a 4 pole connector so I now need to decide how much I care about 12v constant... the Trillium is 7 pole and the fridge/interior lights are designed to run off of the vehicle if wired up. I'm thinking I'll probably wait until we have a x-country trip planned to wire up the power circuit straight form the battery, for now I can just adapt from the harness' 4 pole connector to meet the trailer's 7 pole sans power and all my exterior lighting will be take care of.

If you need any of the pole adapters or any other trailer harness stuff, Princess Auto has just about everything, and for cheap.
