Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
Chandler Palethorpe bought a small, name-brand camping trailer a few years ago and spent a good deal of time studying how he might improve the design.
One thing Palethorpe disliked was a table that intruded into the camper’s already limited living space. It was a bother.
Palethorpe, 50, said his wife, Emily, noticed the same thing and asked her husband – a jack of all trades when it comes to design – if he might make a better table.
Palethorpe did, creating what he calls a “magic table.” It can be folded out of the way or reconfigured in any number of positions.
“Nobody was doing one and I thought maybe I could patent it,” Palethorpe said. “But I kept looking and looking, and the next thing I know, I’m making trailers.”
Palethorpe’s business is ParkLiner, an operation that produces camping trailers that measure only 15 feet from tongue to back bumper.
