ParkLiner wheel wells & tires

I started communicating with the company in January of this year about warranty issues, namely wheel well enlargement & battery relocation. My original plan to come down in May to get this stuff done was delayed indefinitely a week before we were leaving, and had locked in a condo.

So finally we get rescheduled for mid-July, and off I go to take the trailer down for the week they say they will need to do the work. I fly home Sunday & Gail & I return the next Friday to get the trailer. We're told we were "lucky" as they did not have to expand the wheel wells. Well, I found out why yesterday - they put smaller tires on! I didn't even notice till I went to remove the wheels yesterday to swap them out for new aluminum wheels I bought. They took the 205's off & put 185's on! Pretty cool eh? I'll have the only ParkLiner with 185's.

The stuff they did do could have easily been done in a day. Basically I just got hoodwinked.

YMMV, but be very cautious in dealings with these folks.

Frank

Very sorry to hear Frank. We are working on a situation with our camper at this moment. I'll elaborate later this week how it's been resolved or not.

Are you feeling "lucky"? Probably not so much. I know I wouldn't.

How's the load carrying capacity of those 185's?

I guess they will retain their BBB rating.

No clue. Good point, I'll have to look into that. Thanks!

It would have probably been less expensive to stay home and to have purchased a couple of 185 tires even if the cost came out of your own pocket. Unfortunately they did not give you that option . I have admiration for a man with your patience . My description of your situation would be far more graphic and laced with different adjectives

Tires are made in Korea and sold at Walmart for 90$ each.

Frank I know where you are at. I went through the same stuff. It's unfortunate that they don't see the damage this kind of thing does. It will put them out of business. In my case I let folks know and I fixed the problems myself which was easier for me to do than your issue. Every time you pull into a campground you are a billboard for their product. And when folks want to know about my trailer I tell them about the poor build quality and poor customer service. Then I mention a competitor. Hang in there, Raz

That should be plenty of load capacity, and the speed rating means you can fly along as fast as you like without worrying about the tires.

As the axle ages and sags, if the tires again start to make contact you will then have no choice but to replace (and preferably lower or move) the axle. Hopefully that won't be the case.

Those 185's are each over 3/4 of an inch narrower than the 205's. I wonder how that will affect the trailer with side to side sway.

Frank I am so sorry to hear this, sadly you have been one of their best advocates. Foolish for them to purposely do such a stupid thing. I am certainly shaking my head here in Michigan and wondering what the hell have I done!!!!!!

Raz, I have more than half a mind to take a heat gun & remove the ParLiner decals. What's sad here is that we love our trailer. If the company was smart enough to be honest (#1), and support their existing customers (#2), they would have problems with growth - the good kind!
