New (to me) Parkliner

Hello,
I finally have a Parkliner sitting in my driveway. I have been looking at them for a couple of years, and found someone who wanted to sell. I am looking forward to reading through the modifications, and determining which to begin first.

Sandra

Good for you Sandra! We love ours. Got trips planned throughout the summer, and will end up on the seashore in Delaware the week of Labor Day. We're already planning at least a week on the ocean in South Carolina next April.

Enjoy!

Frank

Congrats from another Tarheel (although transplanted so I might not be legal ...
Those Parkliners sure look nice, but I had to rule them out because of the weight. Wish I had a bigger tug!

Weight? They're 2100#s dry, at least that's what the factory says.

opps.. I meant cost.. ; )
Actually I see the web site says 2300 lbs. dry weight, and that's 300 more than I wanted to start with.. anyway all I am saying is its a nice trailer.

SandraT - Glad that u have a PL. love mine! Since October, we've taken at least three 400+mile week long trips to the gulf coast and many, many long weekend trips to the mountains of Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina. I'm headed back to the Pisgah National forest soon for a weekend of of mountain biking!

Hi Roadie1,

The Apps are a great place for adventure, that's for sure. Most of my childhood camping was in and around Gatlinburg, and many of my summers were spent with my grandparents at Watauga Lake. I am sure the ParkLiner will visit some of my old haunts.

Sid,
Every summer, we escape the humidity and head for Idaho. On the return trip, we tend to burn up the road as quickly as possible, so I'm not sure whether the ParkLiner will go with us this year - but maybe.

Frank,
The coast just might be our first trip, or maybe Stone Mountain State Park (NC), which is a beautiful park, and a short drive.

Gordon,
I sprouted from the dirt in TN, so technically, I too am a transplant. I have orange, light blue, and State Red blood running through my veins.

Congratulations, Sandra. A week ago we finished our almost maiden voyage in our Parkliner with a 2000 mile trip from eastern NC to FL and back. Had a few glitches, but nothing too bad. The camper was a dream to use. I am so glad we bought it!

For the trip, We added a Swagman bike rack to the rear, which sticks out a bit, and found that sway on uneven pavement was a problem. (The bikes are not lightweights!) Adjusting the weight in the camper (more tongue weight) and van (less weight in the rear) made travel quite stable, but since we will take bikes often, we decided to add a sway bar for safety.

Can't wait for our next trip!

-- Anne

Anne, do you have dual propane tanks and dual batteries mounted up front? If so, you still had sway with the Swagman and bikes on the back?

We haven't used ours on the trailer yet, and I've been wondering how it would go, as without it, the trailer tows like a dream!

Thanks!

Frank
