Thought I'd throw in my opinion here for what it's worth, as my experience of a fibreglass trailer is solely from websites and other posters pics. The description and photos of this trailer are really what I would be looking for if I finally took the plunge and invested in an rv to tour North America. It seems to have ironed out some of the drawbacks I have been wrangling with, but some doubts still remain. I am not convinced by the 'about' section of how 'Chandler' came to conceive his trailer. Had they fully identified 'Chandler' and shown a bit more of him, or at least described his background a bit fuller, then maybe it would be more believable. You then have to ask how this apparently unassuming camper in his 'other' brand trailer became the owner of a company capable of producing a fully fledged fibreglass rv. Maybe he is a multi millionaire, or maybe he has the backing of a large company - we cannot tell from the sugar sweet description of his vision.
I am maybe being a bit too cynical here - and really hope that I am wrong, as I would be very interested in this product. Hey ho, maybe I need an injection of some happy juice - or some Scotch?

Interesting way to strengthen the roof, yet it won't have an air conditioner up there.

Here is latest annual report filed in NC, I emailed them twice and called, no answer. Company is private owned by Mr. Palethorpe (middle name is Chandler) started in 2009
google maps just show a warehouse location, no trailers outside.
Hopefully any pessimistic thoughts will be eliminated, similar to Lil Snoozy, once someone visits there and gets other photos.

anyone call the number or get a response from the company? I tried email yesterday and will see if i get a response from them.

Also, if it's been in development since 2007 anyone know if the owners have appeared in any other fiberglass forum like casita or scampers? Thought more info may be in another forum to read over.

It does look like a really nice little camping trailer. Is anyone on the board from nearby Greensboro or Winston-Salem?

Looks nice

I really do like the layout of that trailer. It really is different, and the storage is nice too.
But I have to say, the website reads really odd. Almost like when you read directions on how to construct something that has been translated from another language. Alittle stiff. And all that stuff about "Chandler".
Very strange.
But that doesn't mean it's not a good trailer. They just have poor PR. Especially since none of us have heard of it before!

I think the "write up" is quite clever. I am sorry to hear no one has heard from them yet.

The website photos show a nice little trailer, and I think the website is interesting, and written in a fun, breezy, young, quite American style. I enjoyed the writing style, instead of the typical stiff, spec oriented only stuff we often see. The website is quite informative for a very new, not (yet) publicized product.
I called the number (after hours), and the phone was answered by a recording of a very pleasant female voice with a Carolina accent. I didn't leave a message.
Five minutes of my time on the internet yields this:
Chandler is a real person. The corporation is listed. He holds a patent on the magic table referenced in the website (applied for two years ago.) The Parkliner trademark is almost two years old. The business address is on a sparsely populated street, not far from a railroad crossing. Chandler is a member of the board of an environmentally friendly association (I'll not list it) and active in his church (I'll not list that, either), as well.
I do not know Chandler, have never met him, or spoken to him or anyone at the company, have never been to Gibsonville, NC., and I'm not looking for a trailer, so I don't have a "dog in the hunt."
However, unless his website and product have been hijacked by a scammer, I think he's not only real, but his trailer is worth looking at.
Given the reaction here to the last few new manufacturers' initial posts, I don't blame him for not joining yet.
Does anyone on the forum live near Gibsonville? I'm sure a lot of us would love to see photos from a member of this new little trailer.
I'm sure it was a huge investment of time, money, and skill to get the trailer ready to market. I certainly wish him and the company employees well.

Their Facebook page was started about a month ago. The most recent post there was from "Mike Landis" about 2 weeks ago..........

"We're gearing up to get the word out about our new camper trailer! Still in our beginning stages. So what's here? A place for feedback. To aks questions. To share photos and videos. Where are we going? Fun places, this summer. For hiking. Biking. Kayaking and Canoeing. To experience outdoors without all the hassle of having to pack up and organize all the stuff just to get away for a few days. YAY!"

If you have a FB account you can visit their page.

Could you let us know the patent number, so that we can see what the magic table is about? There were no pictures of it that I saw on the web site.

Thanks, Andy
