Hey Brian!

Yeah I heard back from Chandler today, and yeah he says the same thing, the Honda 2000 will handle the job fine. I found the mention in Trailer Life
ParkLiner Trailers

I still debate about going a little larger, just for the extra wattage for power outages and possible running power tools. Funny thing is neither the Honda or the Yamaha offers all the options in one unit... the Honda has the diaphram pump for the extended day tank which rocks, the Yamaha has the built in fuel line shutoff, and longer warranty... the 2400 is a nice pieceof machinery and at 1/4 load which the ac will pull is at 53db... and max rpm's is like 3400 so it keeps it quiet.... but people have tried and failed useing extended run tanks... always something lol

Hi Deryk,
Just a couple of other things to consider...
We were camped on the Sacandaga River in the southern Adirondacks last September and although the water was very low, the sound of water running over the rocks completely drowned out the sound of the Honda from 20 ft away.

Also, if you have back problems, the difference between 44 lbs and 75 lbs is significant. I can, at least, get the Honda out of my tug and set it on a small cart to roll it where I need it. The Yamaha would be impossible!
Best,

Scarily enough at 45, Im in the best shape Ive ever been in...Im lighter then I was in high school and the 75lbs isn't a huge deal(heh I just lost 75lbs lol)... but I was looking at a cage type enclosure that bolts onto your tongue that a honda 2000 would fit into.

Chandler told me that the receiver on the back can support 200lbs but obviously it lightens the tongue weight. I have dual propane tanks so it makes it a bit heavier. I like the idea of a box on the back for the hoses/extention cords/my rocket stove for outside cooking. I live in an apartment, so dont have a garage and plan on keeping the ParkLiner ready to head out for the weekend, even if its just goin down to a friends place and park in his side yard and hang out...beats sitting at home.

Hey deryk, I read that the PL stock tires are ST205/75/D14 and that size is available : ) i might order us one too.

Also, where did you mount your license plate? I see that the tire cover peeps have one that has a built in plate cut-out.

Thom just add a light then for it. I'm thinking about ordering the cover and get a friend to do something Celtic on it... to jazz the trailer up.

It will fit my small yamaha genset and hopefully the area on the PL tongue. Once i know, i'll shop for the best bargan and order one : )
Hey Thom, sorry for the delay, just moved my ParkLiner to my parents house yesterday afternoon. The 21" model will fit fine. I had 33" wide at the frame up against the glass and about 26" to the jack handle. Model's might vary since mine is an earlier model.

deryk

btw, my parent were very impressed with the ParkLiner. My mom agree's the large dinett is going to primarily stay down as a bed to give me room for clothes(I do a medieval reinactment so I have a wardrobe of gypsy/pirate kinda stuff lol) She told me to organize it though which is very true. But now that it's only 15 minutes away will be easier to work on it...make some mod's to improve it for me!

I was busting my father's chops because like 20 years ago my mom wanted a camper(granted she wanted a bigger model with the fancy slideouts and all that) but he told her he wasn't going to tow anything...I told her to buy it and just come home with it...but sadly she is still part of that generational mindset/brainwashing that women can't do everything... I told him it is not hard towing it, granted Im not taking it out if its icy or talking horrific wind/rain conditions

THX for the info deryk!
& your reenactment hobby sounds fun. I've visited the events once or twice, it was a nice time.

Cheers,
Thom
