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.
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
