Thanks Ken. I'll go check it out.

Hello Scott! Welcome! We can't wait to pick our Parkliner up soon also.

I too wonder whether or not one battery will be enough. I wonder about awnings for it. The recent awnings thread is pretty helpful though.

See you in Gibsonville!

Our EggCamper came with one battery but I've added another. I have sleep apnea so use a cpap. The second battery will assure me that I'll have the "juice" to run that along with the furnace if needed. A campground with electric power isn't always available, especially in certain parts of the country in winter.

Congrats Scott on the new trailer. I am sure you will have lots of family fun with it.

I also vote for using the PVC rails for children sleeping on the top bunk, especially if you are planing on using nylon sleeping bags that tend to be slippery. Had a 12 year old who does a lot of tossing and turning at night take a header off the top bunk in my trailer and smack his head up against a corner of a fiberglass wall on the way down a couple of years ago. A trip to the nearest emergency hospital at two in the morning tends to take the fun out of camping for everyone.

Hey Deryk. Loving the trailer, and been using it pretty stock so far. Redid the battery mounts with trays and bolts. One of the original straps came loose, and I just wanted a bit more elegant solution. Also adding some covers to prevent shorting something when I need to do something in that area.

We added a safety rail to top bunk to keep our 3 yo from falling out.

I did add a set of valves to bypass the hw heater for winterizing this first winter. I now think it's possible to just fully drain the system and not have to mess with antifreeze in the fresh water system. Still trying to decide how I will attack that next winter.

How are your cabinet latches holding up? I have a couple that I need to replace. Chandler said that he was looking for a different latch when we picked ours up. I have been looking at the rim latches they put in the Casitas and was thinking about changing ours over to that one. The posts I have read about those raise some concerns about durability as well. Again, something I am still investigating.

We spent a week at Disney's Fort Wilderness campground last month, and the trailer performed great. That was our maiden voyage for 2013. I am still amazed how well it tows every time we take it out. Our tv is a Honda minivan, so the lightweight trailer is a real treat to have in tow.

Hope all is well.
Scott

Hey Scott, Congrads!

My cabinet latches are all still real tight so that works for me lol. I do toy with adding something to keep them open when I am looking inside... but enough projects for now. I am contemplateing getting a compressor and next year just blowing the lines out and adding anti freeze just to the 2 drains....alot of people do that with no issue.

Mine tow's nice behind my Rav4...in fact thursday morning Im taking mine out to pa for a 4 day weekend. I can't wait!

Happy Camping!
