I guess you don't care about fuel mileage. the more weight you are moving the more gas you will burn. Just stay out of my way.

Doesn't make a difference according to Ford. We bought it new with a 3500# factory tow capacity. 4 cylinder turbocharged. Was a very bad decision in retrospect.

It it says you can tow 3500 lb you can.
Yes you can tow 3500 lb with Ford escape. 2 ZTR Lawn movers on an utility trailer for example. Or a boat. But not a travel trailer. https://www.ford.com/resources/ford/...scape_Sep7.pdf See "Frontal Area Considerations" section. 30 Sq ft is the Escape itself. Travel trailer will make a wind drag outside of the TV capability.

That is exactly the problem. It was a dude on this forum who towed an even bigger trailer than ours that convinced us it would work fine. It does not.

Hey Todd,

Yes that is exactly the plan, ParkLiner's would be in stock around the country. In previous experience with our Little Guy Teardrop Trailers brand there would be a few hundred trailers on the ground at dealership lots around the country. We expect the same with the ParkLiner. In the beginning the numbers may not be that high while we slowly increase production but it will increase over time

Hope you have a plan for tires aging out while the trailers are on the lot. Some of these guys are rabid about getting old.

Hey Glenn,

Yes I can see your concern. With our history that has never been a problem. Typically there is a very consistent flow of sales to deplete the dealers inventory, then more come in and get sold, over and over again. Typically you don't see anything sitting on a dealers lot for a very long time, it has happened in the past but it is rare. The typical turn rate we see is around the 90 day mark, at the 90 day mark typically the dealer has sold 50% of their inventory. This is specifically referring to our Little Guy brand again, we do not have these stats on ParkLiner yet. But in reference to your tire comment we actually have a pretty cool program you will see more about in the future. We have partnered with Kenda Tire and they supply us with a premium wheel/tire setup. Their tires have a 5 year warranty from the date of manufacture and a 2 year warranty that starts the day you purchase a ParkLiner or any of our other trailers. But the best part is the Kenda Care, this is very new and more information will be available soon. Kenda Care is a 24/7/365 customer service program with a 1 year "No Questions Asked Warranty" where they will drive out and replace a faulty tire for the first year no matter what the reason is. As I've mentioned before we are very customer focused so we will lend a helping hand to a customer in any circumstance. We truly want you to be a happy camper and want you to enjoy a trailer manufactured by Liberty Outdoors. We have some great stuff coming out soon and can't wait to show you!

- Dylan

Is there any pictures of the new Parkliner. When did it go to 16ft.. when I look at one at the factory three years ago they were 15ft. I like the dealer sales as you have some one close to contact with problems. Not like now Scamp is over 500 miles for repairs away. Others are a lot more miles away.

There are pictures on the website- you may have to look around for the link to the new one. There are also a couple of threads from 2016 with photos as well. Search "new Parkliner."

From what I've read the additional foot of length is all in the frame- longer tongue. The cabin is the same size, but reworked with a flat door and of course, the full double hull interior.

As to when, it seems like the planning began quietly not long after the new owners took over. A prototype circulated on the RV show circuit in 2016, and the first production units should be arriving anytime now.
