The first thing you should do is fix your website. I tried last night and today to access parkliner.com and the website doesn't work. As a buyer I would question the reliability of your company based on that, or I wouldn't even consider you at all. Find a reliable web host. I work in the IT field. Feel free to PM me if you want recommendations.

The amount of people that attend this show is unreal.

If your really wanting to sale some campers, and I'm certain you do, you NEED to attend this show. It's the largest in the country and it's a ton of fun.

I'll be there and you should too.

Chandler,

My wife and I had the opportunity to meet you and see your Parkliner in Pennsylvania. It's at the top of our list for next spring.

My story is that when I started thinking about a travel trailer I found blogs of Casita owners and eventually this forum and your site. We visited a couple of RV shows but were put off by the huge rigs and need for massive towing power. The only small trailers being shown were A-Liners and they just didn't work for us. Pop-ups looked like the only light weight option but even they are too heavy. I believe that if we saw a Parkliner and your Honda minivan we might have been sold on the spot. Plenty of people own minivans and if they knew they could tow your trailer (with the bunk beds for the kiddies) I think you would have a hard time keeping up with the demand. Be honest about the weight and towing capacity needed to pull it and I think young families as well as retired couples will be attracted to you.

Best wishes.

Tim Watters

Thanks for all the great advice! You have all been really helpful. I will reply in more depth and length a little later when I have more time.

A quick note on the parkliner website: I was not able to get it yesterday either, and spent 5 hours on the phone with various entities, all of which blame it on the other; my web guy is vacationing in Ireland, and I am debating whether I want to tackle moving it to another host in his absense. I don't know how long this has been going on or what percentage of people are not able to access it; I went to my brother-in-law's house a few blocks away, and had no trouble, and hear from family in NH and NY that it works fine for them.

Best, Chandler

When I was looking to get off the ground and in to a camper that I could tow with a 4 cylinder car. I did not start looking at RV stores I started with the web. It's faster and cheaper that driving around, plus they don't have any thing other than pop ups and there still a tent. My first camper was a Tear Drop (I still have it) I then went to a Rally to look at them. The same thing with my fiberglass camper I found them on the web (Here) and then looked for some one that had one close that I could go look at. Once again I was sold! So I think you should make sure your web sight gets linked to all the search engines. Also make sure that your sight has more pic's than you think it needs. When my wife was looking at your web sight she said "wheres the bathroom pic's, I want to see pics of the bathroom". That part of a camper is very important to her and probably other women also. By the way I love your Campers design when I am ready to up grade to one to full time in it is going to be one of yours!

Kirkman, there are a bunch more photos on their facebook if you and your wife are interested. The link is on the front of the Parkliner page. Have a good weekend.

I can only repeat that you need a GOOD website - that is where many people start their search. Googling Parkliner took me to a 'dead' page. Also put meaningful info on your webpage - dimensions of couch, height of door etc. Are they insulated? Three way fridge? Propane furnace? Do you have an economy model for those who prefer to cook and eat outside and have no interest in a built in kitchen and bathroom?

I have seen at least one Ventura, Trillium, Scamp, Outback, Boler etc - but never a Parkliner. Are there any in Canada? Why not sell me one CHEAP in exchange for exposure? We camp spring, summer and fall in Alberta, Sk and Manitoba mostly at National, Provincial and Regional parks.
