Well done Chandler for coming on here and silencing the 'Doubting Thomas' types like myself. Sorry for the negativity in my post, but as I also said, your product would suit me fine if I ever went down the fibreglass route.
May I wish you and your company every success and hope the ParkLiner goes from strength to strength.
Andy
PS I'm off to bring the old humble pie out of the fridge.

Chandler.... I like the fact of no rivets outside to hold up the cabinets and insulation too. Lots of good features.....I wish you the best as you have that trailer well thought out and if i get out your way we will be sure to stop in.

Chandler, welcome to the industry and to this forum. I am a newby who is considering the Casita 17' or Lil Snoozy. New companies often use consumers when they are testing new products. I will make you the same offer I made Lil Snoozy. I will offer my service and my 1990 vintage Lincoln Town Car or other vehicle for testing the ParkLiner trailer to see how it operates in the real world conditions. I can make my services available for one to ten years if needed. I can provide the testing and traveling and you can provide the test trailer. Sounds like a good deal to me!!

Just let me know when to pick up my test ParkLiner!

Thanks,

Don in Dallas

<Well, ya can't knock a guy for tryin'! >

Googling it is not very helpful, more than 100,000 hits, hard to find the 1 hit that shows this table. A patent number or a link would make it easy to find for everyone.

Chandler.......are you looking for dealers or plan to only offer direct sales like the others?
Welcome to the forums, I look forward to yours when it opens.

Thank you all very kindly, as we say here in NC.

Don, thank you for your offer to test it out. I have had lots of folks applying [unsolicited] for that job, but I just can't afford them all. I'm sure it would look fine behind a vintage Lincoln though —better than the old truck I drive around most of the time.

The current sales plan is to keep selling them over the web and out of the factory; it seems to work well for other fiberglass RV manufacturers, gives the personal touch I like when I buy something for myself, and enables better potential for relationships with buyers —essential for the critique and praise needed for product establishment and improvement.

Ideas from owners are worth a mint —from those who live it —different from speculation by onlookers —and different from my own ideas about Park Liner!

I need to quit writing, and help put children to bed.

Best, Chandler

SherryNPaul, Thank you for the link that included the patent application number, that helped a lot.

Here is another link that shows drawings of the table, in case anyone else is interested.

Chandler,

Im sure that you have researched your competition. I have a Liberty Deluxe, 17 foot. The best thing about it is the king size bed.
The most popular selling Casita is the Spirit, but it required you to sleep across the camper, and has a smaller bed.

Have you considered a 'best of both worlds' 21 foot or so camper, that would have a layout that would allow a king size bed and sleep the length (as opposed to the width) of the camper, but still have a side booth?

Just my suggestion. Dont know if it is becuase Im 6'3", or just like a King bed!

Any thoughts on a "King Size Egg" from your shop?

Their site would be much more informative if it included floor plans.

Herb, I'll see if I can get a floor plan up on my site either today or tomorrow.

Gene? [hope that is right], I have made it so you can stand up in my trailer at 6' 4-5" inside, although the actual height of my bath is 6' 2.5" as it is at the front which tapers down. As for larger models, we have no immediate plans, but will announce them when they come. I will keep your suggestion on file though and give it some thought.

Best, Chandler

Very nice trailer, Chandler!

Moderators, don't you think that there are enough pix for an addition to the albums?
