Parkliner changes

The Director of Operations from Parkliner emailed me that the interior walls of the trailers no longer have the fuzzy stuff but now are double wall construction that is a white smooth fiberglass just like the exterior. Awesome. Plus they no longer sell factory direct but will, within sixty days, be using a dealer network.

Yes, that was what I sent you in the link in the other thread.

Sorry Jon. By that point in the posts I had already knocked them out of the running for other reasons than the interior walls. At that point I was concerned about all the wood. But I have decided to customize anything I buy now because nobody has exactly what I want. And last night I revisited their website, decided I could work with their model, and wrote them an email. My apologies to you. Any other tips I hope you continue to send on and get my attention.

And I should not have been so ungracious in pointing it out. I apologize. You had so much information flying at you, it's not in the least surprising that some of it got lost in the fray.

I wish you the best in sorting all of it out.

I didn't take it that way at all. Glad to have all your input. And, if you can, please stop me from making a big mistake.

I've been following these threads about the new Parkliner and now have a renewed interest in this TT. I just called the corporate office at Liberty and now have more information on these TT's. Both the 16 and 20 will have double hulls with insulation between making them 4 season! At first glance, the heating, water heater can be operated with propane or electric so an all-electric TT is possible. This is of interest to me but probably not everyone. The new 20' will sell for $35K+ depending on the options package. Don't know what those packages are yet. The campers will be available for preview in October. Gotta get on the newsletter to get details. Probably the egg rally in NC????

Michael....I'm in agreement with your wife. I'm not a fan of those wood doors so, if something else is not available, I would replace them with either tempered, frosted glass or solid surface (Corian). I would also like to see the weight on both of these units!

Watch out Oliver!

We took a tour of the Oliver plant in Tennessee last Tuesday the 27th. Very impressed. Well-built trailer. Oliver has an air space between the double hulls. If Parkliner is filling their entire space with insulation then that will be a deal breaker for me. If the insulation touches both hulls it will conduct moisture and eventually we will have rot or mold or something. Does anyone know the answer to this because if there is an air space I agree, Look out Ollie!

Oh, no! I made an assumption about the insulation. What you're saying makes more sense and an airspace would be the way to go. I did ask about the tanks being inside the hull and that is true. Ugh....sorry to have mislead you. So...did you buy it?

I was very intent on the Oliver at one time but they could or would not provide the cassette toilet. That's a deal breaker for me. Also, I needed a wider aisle and the Ollie's is only 25". Dogs need to be able to make a U-turn!

Whilst I and many others are the opposite - with a cassette toilet being the deal breaker instead of a plumbed one with a black tank. Curious though - why would a regular RV toilet be a "deal breaker" if you liked the rest of the trailer? They're common, easy to use, easy to dump, and easy to clean. Tried and true. Puzzled.

Re cassette toilet.
The older you get, the more of a struggle to carry weight, other than around the middle.

What is a cassette toilet? The standard Ollie only comes with plumbed/black tank. I wanted a composting toilet. Only available in the Ollie II. And no, we have not purchased anything yet. Need to sell my cabin.

I've used the cassette while camping in Europe where most small campers have them. They can get emptied as frequently as you wish making it as heavy or as light as you can handle. It's a preference; stinky slinky is not for me.

Michael...there's a good video on the Lil Snoozy website that demonstrates the cassette.

Ah yes, I have seen that. You open a door in rear and slide it out and just dump it in any toilet, portajohn, or outhouse, right?
