  1. Here are some pics of an inexpensive Oliver Elite II, everything is standard, except for the bike hitch, confection oven, LP outside outlets, and power door key lock. That is the stock factory white interior, stand flooring, and seat covers. The dinning table is black grained and goes with this combination very well. Everyone who looks at it says it beautiful, that's even other Oliver owners. Just something for new prospective buyer to think about, of course you won't be keeping up with the Jones, we have to park our trailer somethings way at the back of the camping sites use to be able to ca

  2. What we like about the metallic silver is that in the shade it’s a bit darker and sun light much lighter and brighter. The same as our Tundra...kinda cool FWIW. Silver is a timeless color. 👍🏻

  3. We would like to do this too . . . . unfortunately, our RV carport isn't at the house, but "at the ranch" - 1/4 mile down a private road. Not sure if the electric set up there will support this. We might consider building a new RV carport at the house as we can always use the other for equipment storage. It's a bit large for the Oliver, since it was built for a 30'l x 13'h fifth wheel with room for a slide. We have timber, a sawmill (photo of sawmill shed attached) etc. My husband is always looking for things to build 😊

  4. Susan, I'm a neat freak and very picky on how I do things. On our Casita I ordered many things in advance and all worked out pretty good, but on our Oliver I made list of things that I wanted to do and add to our trailer and my wife did the same with her interior list. When we got home with our Oliver I had already planed to spend two weeks on the trailer as far as upgrades, etc., so I did wait and placed some orders on Amazon, etc. Glad we waited, because after spending five nights camping on the way home we changed our ideas on something as we all do. trainman

  5. Head to front, so we can look out the back window, especially in Picture Window Mode (red latches undone and entire frame held up by a rope). Who wants to look at the galley and pantry....? John Davies Spokane WA

  7. We used to buy bottled water but that is a pure disaster (pun intended) in terms of storage and disposal. This pitcher is available for $30 in many places like Home Depot, replacement filters are easy to find, are about $9 each, and are good for 30 gallons. PUR 7 Cup Pitcher at Amazon We use an apple juice bottle for a storage tank, it normally stays on the galley counter near the cooktop. We refill our personal water bottles from that and when it is empty, we refill the juice bottle with water from the pitcher, and then refill the pitcher from the galley faucet. Since we don’

  8. Thanks to @Overland for showing us how to make polls! We will see how this works, and how many responses! Also, Why did you decide to sleep in the specific orientation you use?

  9. My T105 Trojans are over 3 years old and still strong. I do have the hydrolink watering system for topping them off and that has been vital in keeping them in good working order.

  10. Glad you've gotten squared away, it would take a very large gennie to run the A/C and the Water Heater. Ours is 3000 watts and it won't do it. I believe you will be fine now. Switch the water heater to propane and everything will be right with the world again.

  12. I got this pitcher for my mom some time ago. She really likes it. The filters, even the lead reduction ones, are reasonable, and the pitcher is small enough for her to lift. Fits nicely in her fridge. I see it fits nicely in your pantry, too.

  13. The radar data is pretty close to real time for one and that is pretty important. I also like geeking out with some of the other features. This is the best app I've had thus far.

  14. We just just spent a week at Bear Den CG just North of Spruce Pine, NC. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ with Hull# 634 which performed flawlessly. It was a well needed vacation post our blueberry harvest. We took time and spent a lot of time learning our Ollies systems- Love Love the Truma, long instant hot showers a win.I think it took like 6-8 seconds for us to have constant hot water at the kitchen sink and sink/shower. Microwave convection oven a must have for us. We were easily able to quickly cook/heat meals during a heavy storm one evening. Full hook ups allowed us to use our black and gray tanks seamle

  15. Our once RV, a 5th-wheel, had a rear kitchen with a huge window. I really miss that feature. Our current RV, Leisure Travel Van Unity TB, has what looks like a huge rear tinted window, but it's just the end cap painted black!

  16. I guess I’m the odd one who’s looking at the back of my eyelids when I’m in bed. 🤔 During the day, I can move a pillow if I want. I wouldn’t let that dictate how I’d sleep.

  17. Enough wine and Shinner Beer, I can't remember which way I fall asleep. As far as watching TV that's pretty much a joke as far as getting reception to watch it, so that really doesn't inter into direction of sleep. But going to the bathroom in the middle of the night does, so which ever way you get out of bed the easiest is the way I would sleep. trainman

  18. Ditto. Raise the coupler off the ball and just leave it there. Also: Easier to keep the bathroom and closet doors ajar. Plugin for electric throws is at the foot end.

  19. Head towards the front. We keep our trailer slightly nose high. Sleeping with your head downhill will make you goofy. KountryKamper told me so. Must be true.

  20. This solution is not quite what you are asking for, but it is an idea that Foy_Mirna custom built for another owner. And I believe Mike and Carol built a version as well, but I can’t find it. Mossey

  21. As noted in the forum thread link DavidS provided, we've had two, of different brands. Paul rebuilt the first one, one time. 🤔 When it died again, we bought a different brand. When it died, we went back to gravity dump. When we first got our trailer, the home cleanout/dump was too far away for gravity. Therefore, got the maceration. Since 2015, we have a convenient, planned dump for the trailer at home. We don't need or want the maceration anymore. None of our friends replaced theirs, either. DavidS, I'm glad you like yours. I don't think either of ours was the Thetford.

  22. We spent time looking a various fiberglass trailers, and finally decided on an Oliver. We spent a long time deciding between the twin bed and the king bed configurations. Initially, we were planning on the king bed, primarily because the twin beds were only 30 inches wide, while a standard single bed is 39 inches wide. We later realized that a queen bed, which we sleep on at home, is 60 inches wide. Thus the 30 inch twin bed is exactly one half the width of the queen. So we ordered the twins, and we are very happy we did. We did get the mattress upgrades, and we both sleep better in Ollie

  23. When we were ordering our Ollie in 2016, there was a blog post and a forum thread on macerators on the Oliver Forum. Then, lo and behold, while our trailer was being built, Oliver offered the Thetford Sani-Con as an option. I read more about macerators on the web, and people really liked them. We decided to include it on our Ollie order. I am really happy we got it! It works really well. No problems with getting the slope of the sewer hose just right, without any low spots. And, of course, it is a pump so it drains much more quickly than via gravity. I really like it. I don't know

  25. Macerators are cool, when they work. The first time you have to rebuild a busted impeller you will most likely wonder why you ever thought it was a bright idea. I installed one on a 1988 Searay 250 Sundancer so I could empty the holding tank into the house toilet when the boat was parked in the driveway, through a 3/4” garden hose. It worked absolutely great, but I always was super paranoid that the hose sticking down the toilet would slip out while I was outside in the boat pumping 50 gallons of sewage through it. Having lived with a composting toilet for four seasons, I would never ever
