Actually Linda K did not have the first prototype - at the time she purchased the trailer Chandler himself had the first prototype
I would suggest one takes Linda's experience with a *Great* deal more than a grain of salt. I have no doubt that we have one or two Parkliner
owners here both current and past, who wish they had given her experience & what she said a great deal more than a grain of salt!
Her experience with the first trailer sold
to a member of the public simple highlighted that Parkliner
was not ready to produce a trailer for prime time due to issues with it's design. Serious design issues continued to be found on trailers made well after Linda K's. Mimi Lee's Smoking Batteries thread
and well as Birminghams1 tire rubbing thread
on a trailer picked up just last spring - along with a few others picked up in the same time frame. Those two examples are not the only issues that have been raised here on Parkliner
trailers built well after the first prototype.
So for clarification purposes on the above the the design problems were not just with a prototype trailer! Linda's K's experience simple highlighted to those here considering purchasing a Parkliner trailer that they did not appear ready to build a trailer to a standard people here with other brands of fiberglass trailers have come to expect or that they were ready to provide an acceptable level of customer service. In other words proceed with caution!
Don't think many here either current or past owners of a Parkliner or those who seriously considered purchasing one would argue that the later issue is one that remains today.
