That Maxx looks like it was made for the Parkliner. What a great choice.

Thumbs up

on the Maxx... Chandler is considering offering it as an option to the Fantastic Fan. The MaxxFan is a real trip saver when the rain hits in summer!

Thom,
Great photos, thanks! I feel like I'm standing on that loading dock again. It will be only a week tomorrow. I did the first wash/wax today as the weather was overcast but warm (for here) and not actually raining although forecast for the rest of the week. Guess I'll get started on the inside clean and polish. We're into our second season here in Upstate NY. Mud! The frogs are singing tonight, but tradition says they have to be frozen into silence three times before spring is truly here. We're back into the upper 20s by the weekend, so Spring must be coming. (Not really a season, just a transition between Mud and Bugs.)

Hope all goes well with your transport. Keep us posted.

Roger emailed me yesterday ~noonish~ just crossed the Wyoming/Utah border and had gone through a snow storm. He said he was going to take it easy with the high winds with plans to arrive Sunday afternoon

Sounds like tomorrow is going to be an exciting day. Or will the anticipation have to wait until Monday? Keep us posted!

Greetings all

Our Parkliner (build #35 - off assembly line on 4-9-2013) arrived today!

I want to thank Roger Gates who drove our unit from the PL factory in North Carolina to our driveway here in Oregon. He said it towed like a dream. The only time he chose to take it easy was during some heavy winds and a snow storm while going through Wyoming.

Roger was very impressed by the crew at Parkliner. He picks up and delivers small recreational boats and trailers for a living and stated that the Parkliner crew had a work ethic and pride in their job that is very rare. He also stated that he is happy to help out any on the west coast (or nearby) that need their rig delivered.
You can contact him on Facebook: Roger Gates

Now for some pictures!

This shows our choice of fabric colors:
Cushion =
Tab Tangerine, Curtains = Canvas Antique Beige

We are pleased with the look and feel.
The coco throw pillows are some we picked up at our local Costco and are made with sunbrella fabric:




this is the outside street view (note there is no tank fill...it is on the curb/camp/river side) :



this is the outside curb view (note galley window. this is a change from the stock slider. it is the same one as used in shower and we are very pleased with this choice! note also tank fill, with camp/river side access.) :



this is the outside galley window closeup view:



OK... the next post will have some interior shots.

Here are some interior shots.

This shows the rear made up into a U shaped sitting area (note the coco throw pillows we purchased from Costco) :


This is the rear made up with table for four:



Here is the galley. We purchased an 18" x 18" tile from home depot and placed it on the counter with rubber-shelf liner under.
Also note; we asked for the microwave oven to be omitted. This meant we could also ask that the MW shelf be omitted and have the light that was mounted under the MW shelf mounted higher up and under the upper most cabinet. We like the clean look. Remember from our original post that our style of camping is completely off grid except for any Egg-Family-Gatherings.



Here is a shot looking forward to the shower door & closet to the right:



Here is the shower showing the bamboo foot area from Camping World:



Here is the streetside dinette. you can see one of the black stadium seats we purchased at Costco...they work great and also came with a nice throw/wrap blanket:



I'll be doing some detailing this week and keep updates coming.
Feel free to ask any Q's and ...
Happy Trails!

Thom (& Cari)

Looks Awesome Thom! Congradulations on your new Baby! I really like the new colour interior wood. Ive thought about sanding mine down and doin something a little different like an oak stain.

I hope you guys have many Grand Adventures in her!

Congrats! How fun, but I am sure frustrating waiting for it to arrive. Sounds like a good driver, cause we definetly had some crazy winds here in CO so I can only imagine how they were in WY. Glad it arrived safely! Enjoy it!
