It's worth a try!

Deryk, your ParkLiner should have a FlexRide adjustable axle.

If you've got the Flexiride, Deryk, replacement may never become an issue since some of the main components can be serviced replaced. (Unlike on a Dexter, which must usually be replaced entire).

I'm surprised to hear that Parkliner may have started with the Flexiride but switched to Dexter- I wonder why? It'll be most interesting if the divide between those with rubbing tires and those without is the axle brand!

just looked over the axle on #035
Stamped as "Dexter Axle 122820078" whatever that all means.

Apparently I should have followed one of my own rules and just kept my mouth shut, cause outside of a snarky comment I was also completely incorrect.

I did some research and accrete is right above when talking about tire sizes available in 13" and 14" wheels. It doesn't appear that tire manufacturers are offering tires larger than 185/80 in a 13" wheel. That's roughly 1.4" smaller than the tire you folks are rolling now, with around .7" less clearance.

I apologize if I lead anyone astray, and did not mean to obfuscate this thread.

When switching the 13" wheels to 14's on my Scamp I needed a little more clearance at the front edge of the outer fender lips. I ordered a 1" shorter Flexiride axle which moved the tires inward 1/2". I also moved the axle center aft about 3/4" to provide more front wheel well clearance during full bottoming. The axle relocation added a little tongue weight which was good, since I use a rear carrier for storage. Perhaps an axle centerline adjustment could solve the rubbing on the Parkliners?

Does anyone feel like the trailers with rubbing are unsafe to pull? I realize between all of we have covered a few hundred miles without incident but I am wondering if the rubbing could slow a tire down enough to cause some wobble that could turn into towing excitement.

Thoughts?

"towing excitement" HaHa. (ok, i hope not. but gotta admit it is certainly a funny yet politically correct way of asking if $..T will happen

Roger stated the trailer towed fine all the way from NC with only some crazy moments in high winds near Wyoming that could happen to anyone with something small like these eggs. I can imagine nearly all of my rub took place during that trip (~2600 miles) and i've put on another ~300 since delivery.

Thom's ParkLiner was towed cross country and was ok...Brian did 900+ miles and was wearing through the gelcoat.

I would keep an eye on it and not do a long trip if you can avoid it.


Any word from Chandler?

no update from PL crew directed my way yet.

I can sort of imagine that this has stopped the production line. This must be addressed before another one rolls off IMO.

Well I dont have a Parklane but you wouldnt catch me towing a trailer that is known to be rubbing on the wheel well for the simple reason it could cause a very unexpected tire blow out.

if you all can find ( or measure accurately ) the diameter of your 205/75-14 tire, then you will be able to do some cross-checking/shopping for different brand and size of tires. As a possible replacement, you may end up considering a Kumho 857, in either a 185-14 or 195-14. Tirerack shows the specs of them, including diameter. In either size, you would be going to a LRD tire, with more load carrying capacity, and a 99 mph speed rating. I am going to hazard a guess here and say that a 185-14 is going to be just slightly ( and maybe enough to cure you interference issue ) smaller in diameter than your current 205/75-14.
Just something to consider. I know if it were mine, I would rather take that kind of step, if it would cure the issue, rather than having to do axle and frame work.
