Hahaha! I hope so too!
right now is a 2 and a fraction person operation. We have an amazing fiberglass tech and construction guru, and Chandler's really skilled at design and putting things together.
I am helping him as much as I can with the marketing end of things, doing the web work, and helping to keep an eye on facebook and search engine stuff, but I am not on the payroll. My pay is banked in the future: My own ParkLiner! Someday - when I have something I can pull it with, one of them is marked for me. (I'm not too keen on trying to pull it with my Civic, though I wonder once the aluminum chassis model comes around if it would be doable.)
Starting a new business is always a tricky thing, but I am really excited about Chandler's work, and.... as soon as he gets them to me I will have them to you.
I'm curious to know what people think of the website style. I wanted to go for "fun" all around. My daughter drew the animated hover-over icons and I have a few more of those to put up when there's more content and pictures to put around them. I have a laundry list of additional pages and features to implement to give people a better tour of the camper itself, but I hope that the "fun" style of the site is a bit refreshing.
Thank you for following our budding homegrown business! Campers make for a wonderful, supportive community, and I appreciate your keeping up with us very much.
We are now to early stage production, able to make 3 a month or so with our now streamlined manufacturing floor. When orders come in, we should be able to ramp that up rapidly to meet demand by hiring some additional help. I imagine that our current floor can manage perhaps up to 10 a month or so, at which time we'll have to look for a bigger space.
Chandler likes being in downtown Gibsonville. It's a small North Carolina town. It has a very "small southern town" feel. The manufacturing warehouse is not at all far from his house!
If I spot any other questions, I'll do my best to answer them as best as I am able.
