We purchased a Parkliner
in June 2014. The wheel well rubbing issue had been corrected in the molds by that time. Our only issues were lack of glue on a abs plastic joint of the sewer line, the drain line from the kitchen sink was too long, the entry door needed some additional weather stripping and the a/c unit leaked if the camper was not level or at least higher on the opposite side.
I corrected the first three easily and will correct the a/c this winter( I may try to upsize it from 5000 btu also). The current Parkliner
uses a roof mounted unit as opposed to the under bench one so this is longer an issue with new units.
As for communication with Parkliner
if Tom Bass is still with them he usually returns calls or emails quickly but he may be out of town. Chandler is a great guy but not the best at returning your calls.
I used my Ram 3500 quad cab 8' bed Cummins diesel to pull the camper home. 16' 2500lb camper pulled by a 20' 7600 lb truck. Did I know it was there? NO! lol
I pull it with a diesel suv now. The Ram is too large and overkill for the camper( I use it for our 11,000 lb 5th wheel). The suv is a great match in size . It has a tow rating of 7500 lbs and max hitch load of 600 lbs. The suv normally gets 33-36 mpg highway and 22-24 towing the Parkliner.
Some people here have been very negative with Parkliner. We have had issues with quality control with the 2 5th wheels and 1 sob which we have owned including being totally ignored by one company. Parkliner is a new and probably under capitalized company. It is growing and maturing. I would not hesitate to buy another from them.
No unit will be perfect for.everyone.. we love our PL.
