$7500 off new Parkliner

I went to the Tampa RV Show today and the Parkliner was on display. There have been a few changes to the trailer since I last saw one. The water heater was moved under the front side seat where the A/C used to be. The microwave shelf is molded into the cabinet unit, no more wood shelf. The front closet has a fiberglass bulkhead and door. The sink and stove is one stainless steel unit and the bath has a mirror doors. It also has a rear outside side cargo access panel on the door/curb side. I forgot to see if the door hinges have been changed. List price $37,500. Show special price $30,000. My figures may not be exact but close.

What was the price before they put it in the RV show?
What comes standard and what are the options, and at what price?

The base price was $17k last June. How would you feel if you bought one at the new price and then found out the old price?

Probably not that dramatic.

The base price on the Parkliners are very stripped down versions. No fridge, no toilet, no stove, etc. All the normal amenities are extra cost. I assume the trailer taken to an RV show was probably a fully tricked out model, so comparing it to a stripped down base price isn't apples to apples.

But I agree, WAY overpriced for a small trailer like that.

If that price quote is correct it puts it well above the Escape 17B I have on order with almost every available option.

And you get the exchange rate advantage, unless you included that factor in your comparison.

The base price went up to $19,900 last July.

No matter how you look at it , going from $19,900 to $37,500 is a 90% price increase . Even at the discounted price of $30,000 , it still translates into a price increase of over 50%.
You can purchase a nicely equipped Escape 21 for less than $37,500 USD
A 15 ft Parkliner now cost's $2500 a ft.
It may be a FG trailer but it ain't no bargain !.
IMHO , they will either have to lower their price or they will go out of business. There are too many good FG alternatives to compete at that price point

There's another post from someone who was at a the Tampa show. Said the new Parkliner was double hulled and had an access panel, and a few other upgrades. Sounds like they are similar to Oliver which is priced close to. $50K.
