Knowing what I know now I would have taken more pictures of that stack of frames than I would of Marisa Miller.

That's a lie. But I would have taken many pictures.

This is the abnormal feature of this design. I'm pretty sure if you contacted Dexter and asked them if this is okay, they would say that it is not.

Okay, but did they cut out only the L-shaped (angle iron) beams in the middle, or did they cut out the big (1.5" wide by probably 3" high) main frame beams on the sides? It appears that the angles pieces in the middle are lower than the frame rails, because the angles are of course under the floor, and yet the floor is mounted at the bottom (rather than the top) of the frame rails; the result is that the angles are lower than the frame and need to be cut around the axle tube. Again, a typical manufacturer would not use longitudinal (front-to-back) floor supports.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

My 2 cent opinion. Axle alignment is measured from the center of the ball to some point on the outer edge of the axle, preferably but not necessarily to the center of the spindle. This is how we did big cargo trailers, center of the kingpin to a pointed tool that centered on the spindle. Many manufacturers use a jig or fixture to align parts that are to be welded together. I believe if this is the case with the Parkliner frames, if that fixture is a little off, then the axle alignment could be off of its correct position. Another idea; how were the molds made for the trailer body, could it be they were hand made and the left and right wheel wells are not exactly the same size and shape, or the body is not perfectly aligned on the frame when bolted down, resulting in a variance of clearance between the well and tires from one side to another. I have encountered incorrect alignment of welded parts on big trucks, and many of these parts get out there before someone catches the error. Just my opinion of a possible explanation, but a good alignment check will have to be done to narrow down the problem.

There we go getting off topic again! I don't think anyone will mind this time, though!

Glenn, she's a Victoria's Secret model. Now, back to the original topic. I just thought pointing a website of Ms. Miller y'all would be rubbing your eyes... and this thread title is about "Rub Issues." Hey, I can spin anything...

I have not read all the posts, but if I understand correctly the tires rub on the inside of the wheelwells and there is enough room at the outside of the wheelwells. If that is the case, how about using wheel spacers, like in the link below.

Yeah, forget Victoria's Secret; let's stay on topic... "Parkliner's Secret."

Hey, those wheel spacers sound interesting. What about it, PL owners? Could they help? It would be less expensive than two new tires, or moving or changing the axle.

About frame building, I bet PL is farming that out. I do know that Snoozy has frames built for them; they get them in all complete and attach their FG bodies. It seems sensible and common for a small startup to farm out some fabrication. But some knowledge of the farmed-out work is still needed, to ensure that it is done appropriately.
