New Park Liner Heading to Atlanta, Ga

Greetings from soon-to-be first-time egg owners in Atlanta, Ga. Our Park Liner (or parkliner) is in production now, and we cannot wait to pick it up next month. I am particularly excited about no longer having to setup and outfit a tent while trying to entertain and/or feed a 2 and 4 year old (although with practice, we seem to have gotten pretty good at it). Alas, we are graduating to a solid roof, indoor plumbing, climate control, and even refrigerated food storage This forum has been a great resource for us while we shopped, and we look forward to learning and sharing more in the future.

O-o-o-h boy, am I envious!

I think the Parkliner is the cream of the crop as far as current new fiberglass trailers go...
Looking forward to pictures, especially of you and the kids living it up!



Keep us posted!

Congratulations. Just got our fiberglass a few weeks ago for the same reason. We have a 2 and 4 yr old also. Looking forward to getting out in N. Ga this fall with it.

There's a lot to be said for a fiberglass "tent" on wheels with amenities.

Congrats Scott. Any interesting options you ordered?
Glad to see Francesca back on the forum. I didn't think you'd be back. I have enjoyed all your posts.

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcomes.

Ken, we went for all of the options they offer except for the folding table. As much as we liked the concept and utility of the five different configurations, our expected use never seemed to coincide with the three that are made possible by the folding table. We chose the bunk bed option for the kids; we still need to determine if we need to add a safety rail on these, but since both beds tuck into the storage areas at the front of the camper, we think this will contain them quite well.

So we will have the screen door, dual batteries and propane tanks, A/C, furnace, fridge, and stove.

One customization that we chose was to furnish our own vinyl flooring in place of the style that they use. We chose a natural finish maple wood vinyl sheet floor and really hope it looks good in the camper. They have been very accommodating and helpful since we began the process.

I think i remember that faux rock looking flooring from the 60's LOL. Is it true the toilet is a 12 volt macerator? Is this because the black tank is too high for gravity to flush it? Thanks.

The toilet is a 12v macerator type. I had concluded this was done primarily to facilitate the use of a common waste water tank (the ParkLiner does not have separate grey/black tanks). But I guess this design also solves the problem of making the waste go uphill as well. Since we have not owned or used either type regularly, I just went along with the option offered by the manufacturer on this one.

I'd be curious to know how long the battery would handle the 20Amp flushing for boondocking or a no hookup weekend. Reading on class B forums they are very divided on of they like a macerator or not. You might be the only one on the forum here with that option, don't know for sure. Hope we can get your feedback in time. I wasn't aware of the common waste water tank.

Our family is at the same stage as yours and we chose to get a ParkLiner too! I really thought it was the most flexible option for a foursome (and the bunks seemed sturdier as kids can get rambunctious as wells as when they grow and get heavier).

Our tykes are 4yrs and 21 months and we plan on adding safety railings of some sort. I do think the storage area at the head will contain them, but the Mr. tends towards the overprotective side.

Anyhows, wanted to mention that we slept shortways on the queenbed for the journey home until we figure the safety rails, and we actually fit comfortably. Mr (6'2") slept on the right side (headside normally?) the connects to the bottom bunk so he got the extra length he needed. The kiddies were sandwiched by both a wall or a parent, so no one fell off the bed.

This actually means there can be room to fit two more on the unused bunks!

Mimi,
can't remember where, but someone made kids rails with Brass water pipe from Lowes/Home depot. A few 90 degree elbows soldered to make a u shape. That stuff is very strong, the straight pieces are.
