Chandler has gone to a maple veneer plywood with a clear (water based??) polyurethane which really shows off the wood grain but does not turn it yellow. We were pleasantly surprised when we picked up ours and found the new finish. There are so many cabinets and we really didn't want to refinish all of them!

You're not an idiot Jared. We just want you to be safe and you are sharing the road with others....

Both the cushions and curtains were from the standard factory palette. The cushions are Dupione Peridot and the curtains are Canvas Vellum. All fabrics are Sunbrella.

Now, that's the kind of detail that sets Parkliner above so many other trailermakers.
Talk about "fit and finish"!

Enjoy, Brian!

I guess it's kind of logical, too. The Sunbrella factory is located in NC only about 15 miles from the ParkLiner factory. The quality is fantastic and the person who sews them for PL does beautiful work the fit is so tight that none of the cushions every bounce out of place. Chandler will have them made of any material you want outside of the standard selections, you just have to purchase and ship him the requisite 25 -27 yards of fabric, (depending on the pattern.)

It's nice that the factory is local, but still- Sunbrella is a premium product for which there are many cheaper substitutes and Parkliner is to be congratulated for using it as their fabric of choice.

I don't know of any other fiberglass trailer maker that uses Sunbrella or a comparable material as a matter of course for their upholstery...I'm sure if I'm wrong I'll shortly be hearing about it!

If I'm going to go to the trouble of towing anything, it might as well have enough comforts to make the effort worthwhile.

Precisely why I won't own trailer tires on a trailer. Even at 65, you're running at 100% of the rated speed. I love my 100+ mph rated LT tires. They give me a safety cushion.

Or you could move to the west coast were you will can easily cruise through 3 states and one province and still have a safety cushion using ST's due to not being able to legally do 65 mph while towing a trailer.
