It did seem like from that ad hoc test sag at least might not make problem worse once dealt with in current configuration.

Innovation is often painful process of having to make your own mistakes, I wish the company and the customers that support that innovation the best of luck in finding a good solution.

Now I'm off to see if HD has an oval drill bit that drills slotted holes, tired of the darn things not lining up after I drill both parts.

You jest, but there are at least two different designs of drill press rigs which make a square hole in a single pass. I wouldn't be shocked if someone made oval holes... although of course not with an oval bit!

But seriously... drill with a plunge router, shift it one direction after plunging all the way through and voilà: oval hole.

I remember one of the major auto manufacturers proudly announced (now many years ago) that a new model was their first which didn't have oval bolt holes on the front fenders because they had reached new heights of precision and bolt-sized round holes actually lined up well enough that they could put the fenders on.

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

End mill. It's not exact good on the bearings.

Jared; nice work there. I've got an old Timken bench top milling machine, haven't used it since I bought it, got it along with an old Atlas lathe.

Well... it would be great if that tire swap had resolved the issue...but it has not on at least one PL (my PL#35). And i doubt it has resolved the issue on any of the same generation rigs to the point of no-rub. Looking at how close the clearance is i just don't see it as the final solution. Something more needs to take place such as an axle swap or ??

A happy PL owner that knows there are still issues to be worked out.

I would love to have one. My drill press gets me by, with some care.

Gas. That's the tank, I made it from a brass 105mm howitzer shell.

I was at Parkliner in August and ordered one. Since I live on a dirt road the tire rubbing is quite an issue for me, so I asked Cameron what they are doing. They are staying with the 13" tire and as of last week, are changing the mold. I hope this will take care of the issue.

I'm new to this site, plus I'm new to any site like this....so since I don't know how to start a new link I'll ask my question here. I have a 2012 Rav4 to pull it. The tow bar Toyota put on is way to low and it will need an extender to miss the bumper too, it looks like. Deryk, I see you have a 2012 Rav4, and maybe others know the answer - any suggestions for the tow bar? Thanks! Jane

Welcome to FGRV, Jane, where we have a bunch of Parkliner owners ready to answer your questions. I'm sure one of them will know the height of the ball for the Pakliner. Meanwhile check out this site for draw bars Trailer hitch, hitches and bike rack (800)298-8924

Hi Jane, and Welcome! I wish you many new wonderful adventures with your ParkLiner!

I have a 2008 Rav4 and they do squat. I tried air bags but not thrilled with them so I got a weight distribution hitch and Im happy enough with it. She sits just about at regular height when towing. Was towing this weekend and was awfully windy

We are limited to 350lb tongue weight Did you go with the 1 propane tank or 2? Are they mounting you battery(batteries) on the tongue? I was told thats what they were doing for battery venting. Im curious what the new tongue weight is going to be.

Welcome to the site, and congrats on your trailer order. Lots of fun times ahead.

Glad to hear about the mould changes, in my mind it was the only proper remedy to the situation, and hopefully it works good, and Parkliner has good success.
