Trillium RV Factory

Sterling RV/ Great West Vans

Sterling RV’s Sidekick is the direct descendent of the original Trillium trailer –  of Markham (Toronto) Ontario, Canada. The Markham factory produced over 13,000 units in various models – 1300, 4500, Jubilee, 5500 – and even boats & truck caps. At it’s peak, there were about 120 employees, building 5 – 8 trailers per day in a very modern plant. The Trillium was considered to be the “Cadillac” in the fiberglass trailer market, and earned the highest awards for design & customer satisfaction.

Today, the company is relocating to Winfield, Alabama.  The trailer was designed & engineered so well, that the same molds are still being used today. The goal of all the employees is to build the best trailer, with exceptional value, which will provide many years of trouble-free enjoyment.

The Trailer

Sterling RV produces trailers in 2 sizes – the 1300 & 1500, in 4 standard floor plans – a 4 sleeper bunk and a 3 sleeper front dinette. A corner toilet room is now available as well. The new trailers (now called Sidekick),  has an even higher level of quality control, some degree of customization, and top notch customer service. Most importantly, the Sidekick is manufactured today in the same fashion as before. We use the original molds; so the design, fit, and floor plans are true to the former high construction standards.

The real key to Sidekick’s longevity is the bonding of all the fiberglass parts. Almost none of the other fiberglass manufacturers can make this claim. As a result, most of the trailers produced since the beginning are still on the road today – 35 years – some over 40! Few can make a claim to such a long, rich history – a true testament to the quality, durability, and design. And, the innovative trailer idea of so many years ago – the light weight, aerodynamic fiberglass trailer – is needed even more today than in the ‘oil crisis days’ of the 70s.

We are establishing a dealer network across the US & Canada. If a dealer is not close to you, please contact us directly for sales info. Dealers can be found by clicking on the Dealers link above.
