LindaH, FYI ParkLiner has only been in business about 3 years so the trailer number indicates it was probably built within the first year of production. Currently, they produce one unit a week if all goes according to plan, all outside vendor items are in stock/available, nobody is on vacation, etc. It is, as I have posted before, a small company and selling every unit they build due to being ordered to customer's specs. There have been some improvements implemented by Tom Bass/others that will tighten the production and cost parameters and hopefully allow PL to catch their breath so to speak. The ParkLiner design concept was born out of Chandler's own frustration with competitors products and I am certain he has had his eyes opened a bit by assuming the role of a producer. Every vendor that has equipment/components integrated in the ParkLiner has specific requirements for the installation/use of their product and probably don't care if there are any other possible conflicts with another vendor's product. Just sayin'...

Both are 2 years but my understanding is that Parkliner do not/did not have an owners manual or warranty info in writing (don't know if thats still the case or not). You can read Escape's full warranty and manual at Escapetrailer.com Manual PDF.

As far as your question as to how long the manufacture can be held liable for problems - it all depends on the problem. If its a major safety issue that they are/were well aware of which they created during their build process and they made no effort to correct and someone is hurt or killed by it whether it be tomorrow or years from now the odds are the courts would find them liable.

So Frank, you took off the (smaller) tires/rims that Parkliner put on and put on a set with less clearance?

Thanks for the great photo, Frank! That gives us a better idea of what your talking about. Those other tires must have really been tight!
BTW…we still love the looks of this camper! I've mentioned in the past that we were to the point of just walking away from considering this camper, but it so difficult to do so with everything else that it has going for it.
I would love to see a photo just like Frank's of a newer one with the different axle. Is that doable?
also
I believe it was Thom that wanted to lift his camper, if that is ever done we would love to see a photo of it!
Thanks again Frank.

No Tim, that would not have been a very good idea. I simply took the radials ParkLiner put on & swapped them over to new aluminum wheels.

Frank, as an FYI, here is a closeup of our tire clearance w/the 185's. Front/back is the same. No rub issues whatsoever as i mentioned. And now that i'm back home i will send off an email to the boatyard to see if they kept the data from Tom B.

I second that remark!! Cari and i, as some of you know, full time in a 38 foot Mobile Suite. DRV-Mobile Suites are arguably one of the finest built rigs for full time live-aboard use. THAT SAID... i would not have wanted to been the original owners who paid over $125K for our unit as i also saw the in-for-warranty work/repair(s) paperwork they included when we purchased it from them nearly three years ago when they moved into a Motorhome.
