Congrads! Here is a thought for ya...how about a convection oven instead? I've been thinking about it because honestly I rarely use mine at home...I think I've used it in my ParkLiner maybe 5 times in the 10 months I've owned it...and with a generator I've always got juice lol. Fresh muffins (for me read that as maybe a whole mini muffin lol)

Just an idea...the misses might like it lol

That's an interesting idea Deryk, thanks! It's a very small space so lemme see what I can find.

Also, in the next week or so I'm working with Calmark RV Covers on a custom Sunbrella cover for 006. I'll keep y'all posted.

You can get some pretty nice small sized convection ovens/toaster ovens that work very well. I have one and works great and takes up very little space on the counter when in use and its pretty light as well.

Yes Carol, so I see. Something like this would be a nice upgrade: Amazon.com: Breville BOV450XL Mini Smart Oven with Element IQ: Kitchen & Dining

I have to go out and do some more measuring, but it's getting dark, is drizzly and cold! It can wait till Saturday when I have time during daylight. No big rush anyways, no camping till next May!

Thanks!

Frank

Cuisinart & Krups also make nice ones as well. Best to go and look at them all side by side to pick one that fits the size that works the best for you - also recommend trying to lift them up as they all vary greatly in weight. Also take a look at how/where they vent out to work with where you plan on putting it.

Excellent points Carol, thanks again.

Frank I just had a closer read of the oven you linked to but I can see where its says it has a convection function - perhaps I just missed it. I do know that Breville does make one with convection though. With the convection function they tend to cook a little faster.

Like I say Carol, we are not in a big rush here, and are not gonna run out and get something like this weekend. I'll get some good measurements of the space and go from there. I've already thought about ways I could anchor that shelf better anyways.

Thanks!

Frank

Glad to hear that your stove top and check for microwave arrived. Whatever epiphany Chandler has experienced, I hope it continues. Great customer service is going to be the core of recovering the good will that ParkLiner has lost. I know I may draw flak on this, but I'm convinced Chandler can turn this around. ParkLiner is a perfect fit for some of us and I believe a great design.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with for a cover. I've been all over Ebay and other sites and, so far, haven't found a good match. I want to put up one of those steel carport things but I fear it's a little late in the season now.

These folks I'm working with out in CA have experience with eggs Brian, just not ParkLiner. Yet. Soon as I get one (if it all works out), they should be able to put them out with not much change at all. Saturday is supposed to be nice in the a.m., so we have a lot of measuring to do. It will probably be a 6 week process getting one of these covers. They're warranted 6 years.

I thought that a cover would rub on the gelcoat?

Our experience with the PahaQue cover we had for our old teardrop was that there was no rubbing as the cover was fabricated for that particular model and size so it didn't flap in the wind and did a great job of shedding snow, leaves, etc. We experienced no moisture problems. I don't know if the fabric was Sunbrella but it seemed to dry almost instantly. Looking at CalMark's website, this sounds promising. See if they'll give you a group rate???
