Anyway, when we got cold feet, Chandler refunded our entire deposit. We wish him well.
This time of year, Chandler probably had it re-sold before he put the phone down.

I would bet you're right Thom. I wish they would post "births/adoptions" on their Facebook page!

Parkliner is a company that listens to their customers. They have the queen size bed with side dinette, bunk beds, and bath. You don't have to select a model, you can get it all! The fiberglass company's just don't get the need for change. The 48 inch bed for example. I just can't see myself telling my wife, " honey I'm buying an RV and you're going to have to sleep on your side in the fetal position and head to toe with me.

We smile about the 'bed thing'.

We made a 100 jokes when we bought a trailer with a 48" bed before we had traveled in it. Gld that we were only going to use that trailer for 2 months.

We had always had a Queen bed in our home and in our Motorhome. In the 1st 6 years of trailer travel we've spent over 1000 nights in the trailer and not once has either of us felt like we needed more space and we sleep in the normal side by side position not head to foot.

I usually sleep in a fetal position and always have regardless of bed. We also both sleep on our back occasionally, like anyone else it's variable.

When we're home we have a Queen sized bed, in it we now feel like we're sleeping alone and invariable we get closer during the night, like we were magnets or something.

We sleep more comfortably on the road, eating habits and exercise contribute to the ability to sleep.

I certainly understand some people have different sleep habits and physical sizes, but our 44" bed has worked for us.

Lots of folks smile and joke about the "bed thing." But not first thing in the morning. Our Burro has 56"x84". After getting the kinks out and a cup of joe, we can joke about how nice if both of us were a bit longer and thinner. Perhaps the fault is not in our beds but I could stand an additional 4" thank you very much. Wife's assessment the same.

Jack, I've actually lost a fair amount of weight since we began rving and Ginny as well. One of the real benefits of road living.

Definitely more controlled eating.

I like the queen sized bed for the extra space... Im not a big guy any more but whe I sleep I dont like haveing anyone right up against me... heh never have my mom told me as a small child my stuffed animals all ended up on the floor...

Chandler has made a great trailer, well designed and have very little complaints about it... the escape hatch could be 6" closer to the front so if its cracked open for ventilation it wouldnt drip on the queen sized bed lol little things like that, otherwise Im very happy with mine. Have towed it over 2000 miles this year and am happy with my rolling home!

What's neat about people and life is that everyone's different and life takes strange and interesting turns.

In our case not being touched indicates somethings not right. "IS THAT YOUR COLD SHOULDER RINGS OUT?"

Maybe for me it comes from the narrow college bunk though at a military college it was too narrow for two and against the rules.

Yeah Norm, we all have our "little things" lol. Ceiling height was a deciding factor for me, excluded the casita 13/16 models...and older scamp 13's. All though mostly its just me in the bed but not always and the personal space while sleeping is a big deal... now I do like the shower large enough for 2! LOL

I weigh less than I have in many years, but I'm still a big guy. I was a lineman in high school football (I weighed less then!), and not because I was small! We find with our 12 pound pup that our queen size bed at home isn't big enough sometimes! And I have to agree with Deryk, ParkLiners are very well designed. You folks just make me anxious!

Deryk,
I'm with you on a bigger shower. Campgrounds showers fill that role.

Cari & i are fairly average in size/height for a healthy-eating mid-50's couple...and we agree with the shower assessment. While we manage, another ~1/2 foot front-to-back would make it great!

There isn't a perfect camper, but park liner comes pretty close. They offer more options in one floor plan vs picking a floor plan with only one option. I didn't mean to step on anybody's toes about the bed. ParkLiner puts a queen size bed in a 15 foot trailer where the others can't even put a full size in a 16 foot trailer. I know they can put a full size bed with the deluxe wood models but for a much higher cost, more weight, and a two or three month build delay. You can also throw out the "can be towed with any vehicle" with the wood option. How can they put in a full size bed using wood but can't with fiberglass? I don't own a ParkLiner (yet) or work for them. I believe if ParkLiner keeps their quality up and their prices competitive ParkLiner will soon be one of the top fiberglass trailer builders.

I think most of the brands will have their cult following..........lol.

It will still come down to what is required for a seeker to buy.
For me, it was at least a queen full-time bed and a place for a
third party. Our shorty daughter.

I agree on the cult following. Another thing I liked about ParkLiner is that they have their prices on their web page.
