I do hope that people will be careful with any negative posts.

If you do a Yahoo search for Lil Snoozy, several negative comments that were made here about Nicholas show up there, even though later information showed us that those speculations were unfounded.

Those posts hang around and may unfairly influence people who are searching for information on these new trailers in the future.

Im curious what the front half of this looks like......I agree the 13" tires seem small but if they work..oh well. I'd also like to see the frame and it's build......maybe the tail lights? there's no pics of the camper from the back right now on the pages.
all that said.....competition is good and I like seeing this ......Bruce

I'm ashamed to admit I clicked on a pop-up ad on one of the many sites I have bookmarked on here, like Site Mash, Craigslist, Molded FG 4 sale, etc.
My obsession knows no bounds.

Hi: Sharon G... I think some negativity goes along with any sketchy answers to questions. It must be very hard to start up a trailer Mfg. business from scratch. Not having a prototype to show and then one that's not complete does look a bit dodgy. I must admit I felt the same about TrilliumRV but they seem to have come along in the process.
I know several people who've ordered Escapes sight unseen and plopped down heavy bucks too!!! Reminds me of reading a phrase " Happy are those who haven't seen yet believe"
There's to many scams in our world now to deal with and trustworthy people are few.

Just thought I would come online to add a few comments, and to introduce myself:

ParkLiner is my company.


The pix you see on the web right now [4/14/11] are of an unfinished trailer; I took a bunch yesterday of and will have them up shortly.

The door normally has a hood over it to shed water, and yes, it seals without the cheap closed cell foam. It has a smooth gelcoat surface on the inside, not the headliner that gets wet in the rain.

The tires are going to change, and likely the weight; so watch as the weeks go by. Also, other manufacturers post the weight of a base model with a few hundred pounds fewer features. I am including many things I think are a must with the base model, so they do add into the weight. The dry tongue weight is deliberately heavy; if you add water, heavy stuff to the bench storage, and bikes to our handy receiver, you will find it just right. I did not like the handling of a few other small trailers when loaded, especially the dangerous sway.

No rivets! Riveting through insulation is inviting leaks and inhibiting structural integrity; I can stand on on a ParkLiner roof over the cabinets, and do pull ups on the cabinets —although not many as I am a tad fat! Insulation is astro-foil with headliner material over it; I thought my competitors made a good choice on that front so I kept with it.

Much more could be said if time allowed, but...

Although I have done extensive research, planning, and testing, there is no substitute for critique and ideas from others, so I invite any that will to speak up.

As for the "community forum": my web guy uses forums, facebook, etc. and thinks that is a good service to the rest of the world.

Let's make ParkLiner the best it can be!

Best Regards, Chandler

Ruth scooped us all on her ipod, good job!

Chandler, Thanks for taking the time to register here, and welcome. Do you have a general idea when production will start? The website, photos, and magic table look great.

We just opened for business a couple weeks ago, and have sold two already. The website is making progress; I know it is short on photos, but you will soon be able to pan the inside and there shall be a multitude of great shots. In the interim, I'll post some pix I took yesterday as soon as I can.

Sorry folks find the "About" story a little cheezy; I do too. I didn't write it, but plan a rewrite on it as soon as time allows. It's not all about me; I have a wife, 3 children and a bunch of friends egging [pardon the pun] me on; don't know about the dogs, cats and chinchilla.

Best Regards & Moocho Thanks, Chandler
