Congrats Thom & Cari,
It's beautiful! You've obviously done a lot in preparation for arrival to customize. Love the bamboo floor in the bathroom but I don't think it would work with our installed toilet. Many happy travels and find lots of gold! Both the memories and the shiny stuff in the river!

I have enjoyed your posts from choosing to arrival. Thanks for sharing. Like you, I bought a trailer sight unseen and had it delivered across the country. Not for the faint of heart. Congratulations, enjoy your new egg. Raz

Congratulations on your new trailer. A really clean looking trailer. I like the kitchen counter with no range but I have to have my MW. I see that PL is going to offer a counter extension shelf later this year for more counter space.

Beautiful!

Didja sleep in her last night? I'd be so excited I'd just have to...

Just took ours for state DMV inspection this morning (which in NY is done by licensed car dealers / repair shops) Of course it passed with flying colors, but took twice as long as normal because I had to give tours to half the employees at the dealership! Don't know what is required in WA, but be prepared to draw attention.

finally back in from doodling in the ParkLiner...

OK some replies...
First outing is planned for the upcoming NOG at end of April. Cari & eye are looking forward to meeting other EggHeads

Wood color...i think it is just clear varnish over marine grade ply? Very simple and duplicatable if accessories are in the works.

On the transporter...I believe anyone who hires Roger to deliver their rig will be pleased!

On bamboo floor in the bathroom...LOL if it had been even 1/2" wider it would not have fit! What are the chances?

On cushion material...it is a nice sort of uplifting natural color. Our first choice was what we saw in the earlier models (teal i think), but this will do.

We are looking forward to the NOG also...our maiden voyage with our Bed & Breakfast.

On Buying sight unseen...definitely Not for the faint of heart as stated by Raz! BUT IMO if one does their homework, with the beauty of the internet, good digital images, and a great forum to ask lots of questions...It can, and has been done with a positive outcome.

LOL...on "Clean looking trailer"... yea it is. After a quick look by a neighbor, they asked me where all the outside vents and holes were. There are none

Did we sleep in her? Nope. Probably never will. Our van conversion, as mentioned elsewhere, has the most amazing sleep system in it. No need to duplicate a wonderful bed&bath in the PL. . . which we will use for entertaining, dinning, and showers.

DMV...we will head over to the Astoria Oregon office probably Wednesday and ready ourselves for giving some tours

Thank you again for all the well-wishes. I hope this thread can be a tool for others who pass this way.

Happy Trails,
Thom

Tried out the MaxxAir MaxxFan 5100k...

(images from the MaxxAir website)

Closed...heading down the highway:


Open...In camp rain or shine:



This fan has a step-less adjustable speed setting which i did not expect (guess i should read more! LOL)...this is sooooo much nicer than the Fantastic Fan on our van with its High/Med/Low switch. On high it pulls just as much air out the cabin as our Fantastic Fan without rain hood...so for any who may wonder...The MaxxAir MaxxFan really works great!

Now that i know it does as well as the reviewers state i'll order one up for our van conversion.


on a completely silly note... for any ParkLiner owners that happen to know their hull/build number and want to have a PL# forum avatar like you see in mine shoot me your hull # and i'll get it right off to you. Nothing like showing some ParkLiner LUV in the forum?

I have the MaxFan. You can drive down the road with it open. Just pull down on the knob that opens and closes it and it will lock in that position.

If I'd only known about the MaxxAir.... It has been pouring buckets here most of the day, although with temp in the low 50s the need for heat would trump the need for additional ventilation, at least today. Nice looking unit.

As for the completely silly note, nothing silly about it. I laid out the pattern for my campsite sign this afternoon and I'll post a photo before I take chisel to wood. Thanks for taking the time to produce the avatar.

Just ordered one of these Tradesman Tongue Boxes from Costco to put our 2000 watt Yamaha generator/gas in:
