Oh boy Tammy, I am not sure about that. I believe the first batteries were inside the trailer and have been moved outside and as for the tire rubbing issue I think the first trailers were OK and then they changed axles and that is where the problem came in. There are lots of people on this list that know a lot more about this than I do. I'm sure someone can give you a much better answer than I can.

Wanting a Parkliner trailer.

I recall there may have been an issue with the AC install as well- maybe condensation not draining properly??

Some older units have all the bugs worked out; others may not. Since they come on the market so infrequently, I think you'll have to take each one on a case-by-case basis and verify that the issues are resolved.

Meantime, I'd recommend two things. First, get a look at one. You might be able to connect with a Parkliner owner on the forum if you post a request with your location. Then you'll know whether this is worth pursuing. Second, do a Google site search on "Parkliner" and research the issues. I honestly doubt you'll be able to pinpoint exact dates or build numbers that had particular issues, but you'll know what to look for and what questions to ask should one become available.

19' Escape is 6'5", the bathroom is a little shorter at 6'. EggCamper (6'7") and Lil' Snoozy (6'4") are both without propane so you might consider that if you're full-timing. I'm 6'5" and change and the height factor was a big consideration for me. Tell your husband to stay away from Casitas

Thanks, Carol. It looks like that post is old however-dates back to May of this year. Wonder if it is still up for sale? I appreciate any leads. Regards.

Montana Patrick-Appreciate the information on the trailers. As I mentioned, we are new to this and experience is always appreciated. It's difficult to tell from pictures what will work for us and what won't. Why "stay away from Casitas"? Height restrictions?

Tammy, While looking, please do check out the EggCamper (made in Michigan). Lots of headroom while standing and plenty of extra head and foot room extending beyond the top and bottom of the standard-size mattress (some have made alterations to fit in a queen mattress). The bathroom/shower stall is elevated a bit, so that might be a bit tight for your tall husband, and you have to watch your head going in and out the side door (but that's pretty much standard with all compact campers). As others mentioned, the current EggCamper offering is all electric, and the minimal wood trim makes the inside very white and bright, but we love it that way - kind of like a blank canvas to color as we want. Check them out.... Dale

Yes. While they're great trailers, the 5'10" interior height, a tall guy gets really hunchy really quick. Check out fiberglass-rv-4sale.com. Also a good resource. Good luck with the hunt.

parkliner back in business?

was just on the parkliner website out of curiosity (I have one of the last ones) and it says resuming business in Jan 2016 under new management and ownership.
I'd have to agree with the previous comment about concerns of things breaking....everything is from generic RV supply or home depot brand, and even if something broke it wouldn't be worth driving back to the mfg to fix it.

Pretty easy to post hopeful press releases on the internet, but more difficult to actually produce the Parkliners in quantity, with quality and with efficiency to meet customers demands. I wish "whoever" the best on their new venture. Meanwhile, I'll just wait and see.

I also wish the new owner success. It's a good design that deserves a second chance. Thanks for the information!

While we are completely stoked about our upcoming Escape 17B, I do wish that Parkliner had been a valid option for us when we ordered back in July. Because I do love that layout, and NC would be so much closer to us than BC is. So I also wish them luck.
