One of those old Writer's Digest ads I mentioned yesterday had a graveyard
of dead trademarks. It was really interesting to see some of the common
words that used to be trademarks, but, like you, I can only remember one
example: trampoline.

considered a trademark. There are several examples of this but the only one
I can remember at the moment is escalator. Escalator was a trademarked name
about 1900 but apparently the company used it as a noun too many times and
it became the generic term for all motorized moving stairs.
