Buying stuff for my Parkliner

So, I have been on a shopping spree for "Folly", buying bedding, towels, glasses, I found a small outside table, all in orange. I will be visible from space!!!!! I am having a ball. 20 days until we pick her up, I am getting so excited. Lots of plans for her this fall, the Fiberglass rally in Michigan, which is practically in my backyard, a dog show in September being held at a fairground, a canine musical freestyle event in October, a couple of agility trials, she will be well broken in by winter and hopefully I will use her enough that I will feeling confident by the time I put her up for winter. Of course, we may decide to head down where it's warmer for a while in the winter. The possibilities are endless.

Good for you Pat! We just bought burgundy double cell darkening shades for the 4 big windows, and aluminum wheels. We're about done for now, and about ready to head out for an overnight on Lake Oneida near Syracuse.

Enjoy!

Frank

If you didn't order a 12 volt receptacle with your Parkliner, you might want to order one (if you don't know how to install one yourself).

Next to the light above the small table. I installed another one above the stove. I often have a fan plugged in one and charging something on the other.

I was thinking about mounting mine next to that dinette light. That's the same wiring I hooked my volt meter to. What wiring did you hook to above the stove?

Thanks!

Frank

on 12v outlet...
I had Chandler put in an outlet under the side dinette near the outer wall. The first attached image is a shot with a cord to a USB outlet mounted with velcro under the table.

The second image is showing a 3 outlet 12 volt + 2 USB outlet that i ran 8 guage (overkill) wire from my auxiliary battery terminals to the box. It comes in handy every outing.

It feels so much better having everything ready to go. My first few trips, I borrowed everything from the house. Between big lots, Walmart, and good will, I had mine fully furnished before the last trip. Sooo much less stress. Throw food in the fridge, and the suitcase in, and hit the gas. Get home, take the food and suitcase out, and lock it up until next time.

Yep, I'm with you. It's great fun to "furnish" the trailer glamping style! Let's see photos when you have them.

OK Huck I didn't order a 12 Volt receptacle, I guess I'm not sure why I need one. I have an electrical cord to charge my phone and iPad. I think I might be missing something. Jared and Gilda, it is fun looking for stuff. I will try to post pictures when I get her decked out…. Frank, did you get your blinds hung yet?

I have a 12V receptacle, just have not installed it yet Pat. It will be handy when you're off the grid with those puppies of yours!

I expect the blinds to come in sometime this week Pat, but probably not in time to install them before our egg rally. Same for my new aluminum wheels, but at least I can track them!

The shades are burgundy and will pep up the interior some. Our trailer decor is sort of drab. I may have misspoke earlier - these are single cell, not double. We could not find shades in a burgundy with the double cell.

I can't wait for you to get your new ParkLiner Pat!

Frank

Yuppers. Both our rigs are always packed with about 4 weeks of dry goods (+various gourmet freeze dried pouch meals) & water.
If we want to include fresh veggies/fruits/yogurt/frozen-meat/ice we do a quick shop the night before leaving and put it all in the van's coolers.
But even without the _fresh_ stuff we can go out on a moments notice in van or van+tt and know we're stocked for much longer than typically out (we still prefer our Monday>Friday only adventures to avoid crowds/weekend-traffic).

You always have 12 volts, but you don't always have 120 volts.
