Sorry for the delay Roger, I had to wait for daylight.

if you check the picture with the new and old axle, you can see the U bolt at the end.

Sid, Do you know the production sequence number of your ParkLiner? That would help give a perspective of when they started bolting the axle on - somewhere between DJO's #040 and your number.

I tried to decider that one from my vin number a while back. All I can tell you is that I have the 14 vin number issued in March of 2014. My bet guess it that it is somewhere between #60-#70.
If anyone could help me narrow it down I would be intrested but it isn't killing me.

Looks great! Tire rub or not, I would love to have my trailer as high as yours. I got to check this out some more, see if I have room to bolt an axle on.

Thanks!

Unhappy Floor

Any drilling you did through the floor I would recommend that you seal it or coat the hole to prevent the absorption of water and subsequent rotting. (I am surprised to see exposed wood underneath.)

Roger, its real marine plywood with several coats of varnish to seal it.

Even marine plywood should be sealed with something like 3M 5200. Better safe than sorry, and it does not cost much.

Sid, I don't believe the sequential build number is stamped on the trailer. I think the only way to get that information is to ask the factory. Since you are the original owner, it shouldn't take them a minute to check their build schedule, find your name, cross reference to the build number, and tell you what your build number was. I think. If nothing else, it's kind of cool just knowing it.... Dale

Ask the factory all you want folks, but it appears they did NOT keep records. At least that was what I was told. They have no idea what # any of these trailers are, no records. Amazing isn't it?

On the other hand, after dealing with them, I don't doubt they would tell you a number just to keep you happy!

Parkliner fixed!

looks great, nice simple mod. I'm thinking of going a similar way just cuz our van now has such nice ground clearance (lifted a bit last spring)...and also...i just like the more "Off Road" capable look of a lifted rig (van/truck) and trailer to match. My one gripe on the PL design was there was no "Off Road" option to lift it from the factory...The stock PL's look quite nice in a low-rider parade

Happy (higher) Trails!
Thom

Is the area circled welded? I was trying to figure out if the axle drops straight down, or slides out sideways with square tubing nested inside square tubing?

That's the mounting flange on the axle. It's bolted to an L shaped flange welded to the frame. The frame flange has a cut out to accommodate the axle tube. I have the same arrangement on my Trillium.

Looking at that picture, one thing I would recommend is some sort of water proofing on those brake wire crimp connectors. They won't take long to corrode with the ends exposed. Raz

Ya gotta love ParkLiner. The owner (Chandler) told me not too worry about those unprotected crimped on connectors under the trailer. I did a double dose of Liquid Electrical Tape on all I could find once I got my trailer back from the factory. There's a bunch of unprotected crimped connectors under the trailer, 2 on the right and a bunch on the left. Raz is exactly correct - unprotected, they will corrode quickly if the trailer is used much. Shoddy workmanship in my book.
