ParkLiner Owner in Colorado?

Hey Donna -

Thanks so much for the info on the ParkLiner for sale. I clicked on the Casita site that you included. However when I sign in with my name and password I keep getting a pop-up msg saying that it is incorrect. Please help; am I doing something wrong??

We are interested in contacting the seller. First question is reason for selling it so soon. Otherwise, sounds promising.

Babs

Babs, are you registered at the CasitaForum? It's a completely separate all molded towable forum. If you're not, when you register I'd suggest using the same screen name and password you use here on FiberglassRV... keep things simple, you're not hiding your financial info which require much stronger passwords.

IF you are registered, but can't remember your password: Lost Password Form - Casita Travel Trailer Forum

Hope this helps and best of luck!

Babs, Congratulations on your decision to proceed with a Parkliner!!! I agree that the wait will be worth it as I'm sure improvement and updates get incorporated into the trailers. And I am glad that you still chose Parkliner having objective and balanced information. We are happily camping out tonight and thrilled you and your husband will enjoy your own Parkliner trailer by fall to travel in.

Robin, thanks for the supportive words. It weighed on my mind for some reason, but absolutely my intent was purely to help prevent this from happening again to us and to others.

Don, congratulations too on your Parkliner incubation! :-). So wonderful you will be able to provide Babs a preview too! Look forward to hearing your delivery story and camp posts when your trailer comes.

The Parkliner community is growing! So cool!

Donna, I have registered on the Casita site but now waiting on the "administrators review". I think it is time to call it a day Thank you so much for your continued support.

To all that have replied with helpful info and cheering us on as we commit to becoming ParkLiner "Eggsters", I am sure you would agree that us campers are a good bunch, but you all are special!

Babs

Don - Do let us know as soon as your camper arrives. It will definitely be worth a trip down the canyon from Estes Park!!

Howdy All - It's hard to tell the status of Mike's PL since there has been two interested posters but not word on this since.

However, we have been in contact with the owner of the PL originally posted on the Casita Forum. We are seriously mulling over this unit. They have a solid reason why they are selling it after such a short ownership, it's loaded with options and we have till tomorrow AM to make our committment.

The topic of our decision is do we go for this unit that rolled off the line Nov '12 with possibly the issues of recent discussions on FBRV or wait for the Oct delivery date we were given for a unit that should ?? have new modifications.

We hate to obsess too much and it would be great to have a camper sooner than later, but also, we are not inclined to want to try to rectify unresolved issues ourselves. Yes, the decision is ours to make and we have to do it very soon. Thoughts, comments, encouragement still welcomed.

Lastly, Robin, what is my "Pm" and where do I find it ??

PM- Private Message but no worries because you must have got on the sellers post on the Casita forum. (you have been in contact) Anyway a Pm can be located up at the top of the page. Under the, Welcome Barbara.

Just scroll up and you will see Private message, you can click on it and open your Pm's.



As for your dilemma, only you can make that call. But maybe something that will help you with your decision is to break it all down, used versus new.

Is the price of the used, good enough/ discounted enough to make you not wait for new?
Do the options of this particular trailer out weigh the wait for the few new adjustments?
Is the thought of having the trailer in hand for your planned trip out weigh the wait for new?


If yes to these than you have your answer! If no, then wait for the new trailer!


Best of luck in your decision, do let us know what you decide! I know I wasn't any help............ But hopefully food for thought!

It's your decision to make, definitely. But IMHO the one thing you can never get back is time. The Parkliner that's for sale on the CasitaForum is ready now. You can camp all summer long and never miss a moment. You wait until October for a new one, how much camping will you get in before the Colorado weather shuts it down?

Best of luck with your decision.

I think it's good to have options! I wouldn't try to sway you either way, but will add
some points to consider that may help (maybe?),

It seems like mine is similarly equipped, all options avail at the time plus a few added special requests (sink, LEDs). If I were to order my trailer today based on the 2013 price list, it would cost almost 2K more than the price was in 2012. This one is further discounted 3K, so the savings is not insignificant. You would have a trailer sooner, and a "buffered fund" value of 5K in which you could address items of your choosing. There is a strong value proposition here.

However, peace of mind is Priceless. Priceless. I think you have to mull over your appetite for addressing issues of concern. If it's a matter of principal of having to put money into a new trailer buying the used one addresses that. If it's a question of time, skills, ableness of doing the modifications, it's only a few months wait for a new unit. Which doesn't mean you can't go camping... it just won't be in a Parkliner. Ultimately, it's about the experience of camping, right. You can still have a fun summer in another rented/borrowed unit and the joys of anticipation of your customized unit to your specs very shortly, AND still end up with a Parkliner made for you.

Just a couple of thoughts that came to mind. Best of luck on your decision!

As others have stated... There is no replacing "time"... That said an egg could easily outlast the original owners, so waiting a few months for one with your options / fabrics / tweaks right off the line IMO is worth the wait.

Greetings All -

It is a very good morning here in Colorado; snow capped mountains against a clear blue sky and temps reaching into the 70's. Perfect camping weather! And, camping is what we will be doing sooner than later thanks to you good people that have supported our quest for a Parkliner.

As my hubbie and I pondered our options yesterday, Robin's reply came at the right moment. We were discussing the very same scenarios as he put into concise questions and without reservation, our answers to all three were "Yes".

We contacted the owner in Blacksburg, VA and will be headed that way within two weeks to hook-up, or hatch if you will, our very own "egg"! We are elated now and feel we have made a good decision for us, and in no small measure, with the feedback from all that took the time to help us find our way.

Look for postings to continue as our journey unfolds and, Don, we may see you at the gathering near Leadville.

Hope you all are feeling the luv
Babs
