Well there is always the possibility of too small, money issues, health issues etc. I was baffled about Harry selling his ParkLiner... I've towed it almost 800 miles towers well except when its really windy but I'm taking care of that problem. Everything works.


Some people could think its too small...I have 3 sets of friends with 30+ foot trailers with slide outs....but so far 2 have told me I'm lucky and stay small. I lived in a 27 foot sailboat for several years...I'm ok with the size....but some will always want more room.

It's a mystery to me. If I didn't already own one, I'd go for this deal. Except, of course, there is a whole country between here and there. I love ours and can't imagine parting with it without very good cause.

I think its this one Parkliner owners

They also own an escape 19 and are recently retired... guess they are keeping the larger one.

So this is listed in "Referrals" and I am wondering if the owners will be posting it here on the forum. I don't know, I just have to say that when I see units go up for sale for quickly that it puts that manufacturer on the back burner for me. I do know that a lot of people buy on an impulse, some people even buy for a vacation or two and hope to regain most of their money versus staying in motels, health and financial changes, etc. I think we do probably notice it more in a smaller market. We have looked at a lot of used stick trailers and many, even when a few years old, look like they were not used at all and they are not that easy to keep clean/maintained without wear showing if you are using them. I bet this won't last long on the market though.

I think this may be LindaK and Pete's Parkliner. They DO have a 19' Escape, so if it's theirs, it's not like they'll be all molded trailerless. We can speculate all we want about why folks sell, but if you really want to know... ask them.

Yeah I was right, it was the link I posted. I got an email back from Linda...


Hi Deryk,
We have #2. We are selling our ParkLiner because we have an Escape 19ft. and have decided that one trailer is enough.
Happy trails,
Linda

Once i saw the picture i knew it was Linda and Pete's rig...i remember the nice yard and setup they had when we visited with Pete before placing our order. It makes sense to sell the smaller of the two trailers for their use after talking with Pete that day...it seemed like it was only a matter of time before they put the PL up for sale.

We think our ParkLiner is sold. We will know for sure Tuesday afternoon. We purchased the ParkLiner thinking that it would be an easier trailer to hook up and go on short trips. No WDH hitch, no black tank (porta potty), we could leave the queen bed made and still have a small dinette. While there are great things about the ParkLiner (I love the open feeling and the queen bed, and a bathroom!), we did note that we got the same gas mileage pulling the ParkLiner as we did with our 19ft. Escape (our tow vehicle is a V-8 4-Runner). We also had some issues with the ParkLiner in comparison to the Escape (I will address that at a later date) concerning quality. When we purchased the ParkLiner, we knew that we wouldn't have any trouble selling it if we changed our minds about having a second trailer.

There was lots of interest on the PL; if the deal tomorrow falls through, there are others who are still interested. As has been said many times on this forum in numerous threads, it is all about personal preference. One just needs to look at what is most important to them in a camping trailer and find the one that best suits their needs. We feel that molded fiberglass is the only option for us and we are glad that we happened upon Escape trailers. Our 19ft. Escape is our third Escape trailer; they just keep getting better!

On another thread, someone mentioned that Escapes are popular because of all of the advertising. The reality is, Escapes sell by word of mouth. When you see one in person, you can see the difference. Before Reace began building Escape trailers, he had a trailer rental and repair business. He began to notice a number of issues with molded fiberglass trailers and felt he could make one that was better. He did that and his trailers keep improving and getting better. He started out slowly; as more and more Escapes came on the market, the popularity increased because people liked what they saw. We love our Escape 19ft. We liked many things about the ParkLiner.

It is sad to see people arguing about which trailer is better rather than just seeing that it is all a matter of personal opinion and personal experience. We are glad that there are so many molded fiberglass options out there!

I would be happy to answer more specific questions about either of our trailers and/or our experiences with the companies. We have also owned a number of stick-built trailers as well as 4 different Bigfoot trailers. There are advantages (and disadvantages) to all of them.

Happy trails!
