  1. rideadeuce - We considered making the receiver out of aluminum but that takes a different skill level and the finished product would be more succeptable to stress cracking. If we had Oliver's talented welders and materials available, things might be different.
  2. I wondered if removing the tire cover would be hindered by the above-bumper hitch. Sorry to hear it does. I didn't mention or show it last night, but this receiver also doesn't interfere with the bumper being lowered. The attached photo, taken before I reinstalled the diamond plate cover, shows the bumper in the down position. In fact, it rests on the receiver tube instead of swinging down. The drain hose can be easily used. You'll have to help me convince the great folks at Oliver to make and install this style. Or, you could have a local welding shop fabricate one and you inst
  3. John, thanks for the feedback. The gaskets do allow for expansion and the holes are drilled slightly larger than the bolts to allow movement (and easier installation). I'll try to post the drawing tomorrow.
  4. Thanks much. We enjoyed seeing all the great modifications you've done to Snowball, and they are an inspiration to us for future efforts.
  5. Here's another approach to bike rack carriers for Oliver Travel Trailers. Before going any further, I must say this might not be ideal for folks with a desire for maximum rear clearance ... and I've seen a post where an owner scraped one the rear cross supports. With 12-inches clearance on level ground, we haven't had that problem even with a steep driveway. Our old Airstream did drag when we attempted parking in that driveway. I'll acknowledge some folks may need more clearance, so for those folks I recommend going with an above bumper mount or tongue mount. We've been toying with ideas f
  6. We have a 2004 Ford F250 with the 6.0L diesel. Without trailer we average 20 - 22 mpg. Towing the Argosy has consistently reduced milage by 4 mpg. I suspect towing an Elite II should be about the same considering weight, tandems axles, and aerodynamics. Sadly it will never come close as my VW golf TDI getting 46 mpg at 280k miles.
