Found this interesting article regarding the ParkLiner trademark. Out of business?

Yes, looks like Parkliner never launched, too bad

Or maybe they just haven't filed the proper papers in time to keep the trademark from going into abandoned status? But we haven't heard much lately from those folks anyhow, so maybe they decided the market wouldn't support two new mfrs.

That's too bad, I did try and call them twice, nobody was there. I left a message but got no call back, so I was suspect to them having problems.

I would hate to spend a pile of money on molds, then only make a couple of prototypes. Yeow.

We're still in business yes!

Sorry for the confusion. We've had some issues with the trademark registration which should be taken care of soon.

Our manufacturing process is almost out of its initial phase and we're doing fine. Manufacturing design and scaling takes a bit of time and care, and we want to get things right. So Chandler is hard at work ironing out those details - we had some manufacturing logistics to deal with. Things like how to manage stock, where to locate inventory in our facility, etc.

Our sales and promotion is in "turtle mode" while we are ironing out these details, but I hope to have some much promised additional photos up on our facebook page hopefully by the end of next week.

We also want to pull up some first hand camping experiences too from our first customers!

Thanks for your support and encouragement and continued interest.

Mike

Hey. So glad you're still around. From what I've seen you still have a nice looking unit. Looking forward to hearing more from you. What I would suggest however is that you be more responsive to phone and e-mail inquiries. Failure to respond can leave a person wondering and then when you run across the piece of news I posted earlier it kind of seems reality.

Thanks for the reply and the good news.

I absolutely agree. The good telephone responses from Jim Palmer at EggCamper is what sealed the deal to buy one of his campers for us. After talking to him on the phone we got the feeling that he was an upright person who we would like to do business with, (which he was and continues to be).

Thanks for taking the time to register here Mike. Lots of folks here said no one answers your phone number or email. Any idea how folks can go about contacting parkliner? Thanks.

Hooray!
I think...
I was about to inquire as to the possible purchase of the prototype if you weren't "using" it...

That trailer is sweet.



And the tone of your website is certainly refreshing. http://www.parkliner.com/
No vague claims about "small car towability"- you just come right out and tell us it needs a midsize or bigger.
I like that kind of honesty.

And everything that's generally considered an essential is included in the basic price!

I think one of your best design choices in that area is the windows that are vented for use in the rain.
It seems like everybody buying a trailer with sliders these days has to buy "Maxxair" window vents to solve that problem.
Here's hoping that other manufacturers will follow your lead in that and other areas!

Best of luck to you

Francesca

P.S.

I read somewhere that you're putting a rainguard over the front door- you might change the picture at your site to show that. I've seen some concerns expressed at other sites about possible leakage there.

There has been no updated photos since day one, just promises. Today the Facebook said they completed 3 units? Yet we have not seen one completed unit, just a prototype. Poor management IMHO.
