  1. Hi Mmoren Just my opinion, but I would add the factory installed Solar and the AGM batteries. I would also recommend a good generator if you are planning to stay in some of the great BLM parks, boondocking etc. Sometimes when it rains for several days and we are parked in a location with large trees, Solar alone just can't do the job. As to your question "So knowing what you know now, would you have still gone with Oliver?" We have owned two Oliver Elite II's. This year we have traveled to California, then to Washington State, back to LA, Calif, then back to Florida. Another trip t

  2. John, Those straps you came up with are a clean addition if you are gonna really test out the off road capabilities of the Oliver. Well done also. IMHO both of these gentlemen deserve a bit of thanks for sharing their ideas with us all.

  4. Hi All, I have been fortunate over the last year to be the Kentucky Correspondent for RV Family Travel Atlas (RVFTA). Stephanie and Jeremy Puglisi are a wonderful couple and the parents of three young boys. They are avid RVers and currently produce three RV related podcasts: RVFTA Campground of the Week Girl Camper I have been interviewed seven times, including the following podcast episodes since my last post about this subject. Most of the interviews have been on the Campground of the Week podcast. I thought some of you might enjoy the following episodes: Mammoth Cave

  5. First Hello there, I believe in the old sayings "Whatever can go wrong will" and "Chance favors the Prepared". Just about any thing made by man will have a problem or two. What makes the difference to me is how a company reacts to the problems. Based on my experiences with RV's and in a manufacturing career, Olivers are a very well made product. I walked the factory floor and viewed the process. I've read the comments posted in this forum concerning how the Customer Service reacts to complaints. I feel very confident in the companys commitment to building a quality product and providing e

  6. Hi Mike & Carol, Yup, Laura and I will be attending the Oliver Rally in May, 2018. This will be our 2nd Oliver Rally. We are Oliver fans and appreciate the hospitality of the Oliver Owners. Look forward to seeing you at the rally. Merry Xmas & Happy New Year, Dean

  8. Here's the PDF for the 2016 model. It helps and having both the 2016 & 2017 pdf's downloaded gives you almost all of the info. Oliver University is OK but you have to scroll thru. It would be nice if they had a downloadable PDF section as well. Jason gave me a link for the 2017 PDF, call him and then get it. I forgot to add it to our fb files page but it is listed there in the beginning of the Oliver owners Facebook page also after you scroll to the bottom. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zhs9yglj5uvkkx9/AAAdfjcB_nd4KTke3NNcCXcDa?dl=0 Reed

  9. In the RV industry, everything is very poorly made in comparison to cars or home appliances or most other expensive consumer goods. It shouldn’t be this way, but until the Feds impose stringent safety guidelines and regulations for RVs, there it is. The important thing for a buyer to consider is that Oliver is well above (almost) all other companies in their determination to please their customers. I am aware of a tiny handfull of really small RV companies that match or perhaps exceeds Oliver’s level, and NONE of those make travel trailers. And the “bones” of the trailer - the overall des

  12. Here is our new Oliver Legacy Elite II. We ended up having to have it towed to us by Trusted Transport/Vince Dwyer, who did a great job.

  13. Dean, thanks for posting these. I’ve enjoyed RVFTA podcasts and a number of YouTube channels on RV-ing. Will you be at the Oliver Rally this year?

  16. While in B.B. a couple of years ago, we took a day and drove the Old Ore Road (26 miles). It was used in the early 1900s to transport ore from Mexican mines to the railroad station at Marathon, the Old Ore Road generally follows the route used by mule and pack trains a century ago. The road has excellent views of the Chisos Mountains across the Tornillo Creek drainage to the west. Ernst Tinaja, five miles from the southern end of the road, is a popular destination.

  17. I agree with you both. That low of a temperature would be no fun to camp in and could be dangerous if an equipment failure occurred. That being said, I believe that these campers could take an overnight temperature plunge of this magnatude. I was simply trying to help calm the worries of the OP concerning freeze protection. I plan to put my rig to the test and do some winter camping. My wife has a dream of camping in an area that experiences heavy snow. She is from South Carolina and has never experienced a 12" overnight snow fall. There are plenty of places I can pick to grant this wish

  19. I run mine at 60 psi and have noted no issues. I may try 55 next season. I dropped the pressure the morning after we picked up the trailer.... I have TPMS sensors that also show temperature. The tires heat up during normal use by about 4 to 6 psi, which is what they are supposed to do. If the pressure is a lot lower than ideal, they will heat up more and have a bigger temp rise, which is their way of telling you that they may not be happy. Low pressure means more heat, increased rolling resistance, less mpgs, possible tread wear issues (edge wear) and increased likelihood of failure.

  20. Ray - April 2 is a good date. Weather will be OK in TN by then and a southern route will get you some very nice weather. Make sure that you let Santa know about YOUR new sled. Bill

  21. The time will go fast. Have a Happy Holiday and New Year and spring will be here before you know it. Don't be afraid to sleep at Wal Mart or Cracker Barrel on the way home. That will let you get more miles on a travel day. Look into the All Stays camping app for ipad or iphone (maybe others). It's very helpful on the road to find the resources you will need. Welcome to the family. Scotty

  23. When we had that problem, we stopped at the plant on our way to moving to VA, and they replaced the cell boost power supply. We were not getting any lights, works ok now. Oh, when you turn it on, don't forget to turn it off when you leave the trailer, it is a power hog. Stan

  24. We too had the issue of the lights showing all green on the cell phone amplifier, and then sometimes two of the lights going to red. When we made our repair trek back to Hohenwald this was one of the items on the “to do” list. The diagnosis, based on the instruction manual, was that there was feedback between the outside and inside antennas. The standard cure was applied, i.e. move the inside antennae a few inches and put some aluminum foil on the bottom of the compartment above. This seemed to help, but when I got back to home base the problem reappeared. So, I called the manufactur

  25. I just bought one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009MU64Y0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s03?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I got the 30 gallon. It has standard hose attachments, one on top and one on bottom of the other side. Folded it is the size of a small shoe box. I haven’t used it yet. It will primarily be used to transport water from a source back to the trailer to fill the fresh tank when we’re boondocking. Mike
