We LOVE our new Parkliner!
We picked it up in mid-September from Chandler, Cameron and crew and camped in it that night as we headed back across the U.S. We've been home a week, and after spending 2 weeks camping our way home for a total of over 4000 miles we are pretty impressed!
Weather was an issue everywhere we went and included heat and humidity that we're not used to, heavy rains, thick fog, below freezing temps, snow, and high winds. We were quite comfortable through it all and the Parkliner
towed beautifully! We pulled over and sat out winds that were in the 50-55pmh range and above, but other than that, no problems.
The MaxxFan is a wonderful upgrade and got us through the worst of the heat. We never needed to use the AC. The heater on a thermostat was the other lifesaver during the chilly nights and mornings (24 degrees!). We had plenty of room for two adults and two young 70-80 lb. Labrador retrievers. The actual queen size bed is wonderful! We left it down most of the time and ate and worked at the side dinette. There's plenty of floor space for the dogs and storage throughout is plentiful. The counter extension came in very handy and we're glad we got it.
We had been paying close attention to the wheel rub and battery
issues since placing our deposit, and even considered getting our deposit back. But after going back and re-looking at all the other fiberglass trailers, we kept coming back to the Parkliner
. Nobody else has the design, dimensions, and price point that suit our needs. So we went into this with our eyes wide open and we're very happy with our decision.
When we picked up the trailer we were reassured that wheel rub was no longer an issue nor the batteries. We have the original mold, the bolted axle
and the batteries mounted outside on the tongue. No problems!
We have a couple of leaky windows
from torrential rains at highway speed and Chandler immediately responded to our concerns. He directed us to take it to a local RV place here at home to have the windows
resealed and to bill him directly. We can see a couple of marks from the wheel on one of the wells but it looks more like impact from high speed jaw breaking bumps, the kind that make you think you've broken an axle
. We'll pull the wheels and take a good look when we have the windows
We can't say enough how much we like this little trailer! It was worth the wait and we look forward to our next trip!
