Parkliner RV support

For the Parkliner owners in the states close to North Carolina, I have just learned that Liberty Outdoors, the company that purchased Parkliner a few years ago, has stopped production and closed the factory in Liberty,NC.
As a 2014 Parkliner owner, I was concerned about where to get technical support and repairs for my RV.
Aaron McGee, who was the Production Development Coordinator for Parkliner for many years, is now employed by Camping World in Colfax, NC, outside of Mebane, close to Greensboro. If your Parkliner needs repairs and you are willing to make the trip to Colfax to have a Parkliner expert provide the service, this is a good option. If you ask for Aaron, Camping World will assign the service to Aaron

GeorgeH Liberty Outdoors is suppose to have a 2018 ParkLiner Demo at our rally through an arrangement with their dealer Southland RV. I was told they were making some changes to it but I don't think they will quit producing the ParkLiner

2016 ParkLiner

So, maybe we jumped too soon in selling our Scamp.
At least now we have a queen size bed and more headroom.
I never had the feeling that Parkliner would take care of us for ever more.
Tom Bass was good enough to reimburse me for the "warranty" work I did myself.

I think they went to selling the trailers through "Little Guy" in California.

Recently, I was corresponding with a Dylan DeHoff ddehoff@golibertyoutdoors.com and
William Zantopulos wzantopulos@golibertyoutdoors.com

You may get some help from them. But they were slow in answering my e-mails.

I just received this Facebook PM from Parkliner:

We have shut down our North Carolina plant that manufactures the Park Liner for us and are updating and revising the Park Liner. We are hoping to have production back up in roughly a year.

That sounds to me like outdated information. I believe they did shut down for a period while they switched from the "old" Parkliner 15' to the "new" Parkliner 16'. Your e-mail sure reads like a robo-response that hasn't been updated (like the website, which still featuring pictures of the old model).

The new 16's are hitting the market and the roads (I've seen photos from buyers of the new ones), so it seems they are in production again. I believe there was another rumor that they were moving production to a nearby facility. If true, that would account for the rumors of the old facility shutting down.

Lots of rumors here. Let's avoid jumping to conclusions. I'd hate to publish an obituary for a living company!

At the end of last month I received an email from Liberty Outdoors listing all the dealers where you can view and purchase the new Parkliner across the country.
It reads more like a roll out than a shut down.

I would too, but they certainly don't do themselves any favors with badly outdated information and no recent posts.

Agree. With a new parent company and a new(-ish) trailer out, you'd think they could at least manage to update their web page.

If I were a dealer of the new Parkliner, I'd be putting some pressure on Liberty Outdoor to remedy that. Nowadays, a good web site is the necessary starting point for almost any product more complicated than a stick of lumber or a loaf of bread.

If past practice is any kind of indicator Parkliner will continue down the road of unfulfilled promises and disappointed customers .
I would rather put my faith in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny !!

Is Parkliner Out of Business?

Jon, I agree their website was horribly outdated. That's never good! I almost ordered one last year until they stopped making the old model. That was a good camper at a good price. I guess I am lucky I didn't! What happens to the people in the pipeline; wait another year until they maybe reopen? Hopefully Liberty Outdoors can secure the rights to it and work something out with someone else in their group like T@B who appear to be doing just fine in this good economy. Maybe they could have 2 models, one like the old one and one like the new. T@B has multiple models. Just some happy thoughts...

Just a little info

So as the o.p. stated the Liberty outdoors NC plant that produces the Parkliner has been close. There were a couple of remaining orders that were filled but the plant is closed. It may be true that the Parkliner will be produced in the future but at the moment all tooling and machines are in storage. So, if there are any Parkliner owner that need work done to there campers let me know. Also, I am able to answer questions, I may no longer work for Liberty Outdoors, but I have always stood behind the Parkliner, from the beginning to the end twice. Yes, I started building Parkliners with Chandler in the original location, and finished up in Liberty NC about 2 months ago. I am now working at Camping World of Colfax but I can be reached by PM. I am here to do what I can for Parkliner owners. Most likely if you bought a Parkliner and picked it up from the factory in Gibsonville, Burlington,or Liberty you may have talked to me person.

That is sad news, Aaron. I respect and appreciate your commitment to the product and the owners. I'm curious- any idea how many of the new-style Parkliners were produced?
