  1. Update: Mistakes, Canceled Order, and a Bullet Doing a little cleaning up in the shop and have an Oliver original-size dinette I am going to offer. The measurements are 28.125" deep and 24.25" wide. Additional matching microwave, pantry, and nightstand countertops can be made to match. Made from Mahogany & Maple strip dinette was ordered and the customer sadly had to cancel his trailer due to health issues. Price: $300 plus UPS shipping. PM me if you are interested. I can ship ASAP and should arrive by Christmas. Walnut Dinette SOLD Mahogany Dinette SOLD
  2. Thank you! That means the world to me.
  3. I've crafted about a dozen of these tabletops which use the Lagun Table System and Overland mount. There is a fair about of skill and geometry to craft one and that’s what I love about them. Designed to turn your rear twin bed configuration into an office workspace or extra dining area this tabletop offers many configuration options. It comes with the Lagun System and the Overland bed platform mount bracket. Fully open this tabletop offers lots of workspaces or a spacious dining area for two. Able to adjust up & down as well as swing left or right and even pivots to get it just where you need it. Fold up one or both sides for a smaller table that can hold cocktails & snacks or tea for two or just a few good books. Available in Mahogany or Walnut.

  4. As many of you know I am raising my prices as my costs have increased significantly over the last 3 months. If you ordered before today you are grandfathered in at the old pricing. Link to PDF Catalog: https://drive.google.com/file/d/17XFL_5ine1WusHVKYguUBRmkj2KnJUN_/view?usp=sharing
  5. Wood is a beautiful natural resource and one that I feel fortunate to work with daily. This mahogany extended dinette for hull 444 was crafted from a single timber 13” wide and 10’ long. Applying the satin polyurethane last night took my breath away as its waterfall grain with tiger stripes popped out. Only a few times have I had the pleasure to craft with wood this unique. NOTE: As of August 1st, I will be increasing my prices by 15 to 20%. I do not take this lightly and can only hope prices will come back in line over time. All the materials I use in my craft have seen an unprecedented rise in cost, especially wood. For those who have orders in process, you are grandfather in at the current pricing. If you are planning to place an order, all new orders until August 1st, will still be honored at the current catalog price. I will be publishing a new catalog on August 1st, with the price increases. My current catalog can be downloaded HERE
  6. Thank you Bill, Little secret - that's the fun part.
  7. New Catalog. New Products. I have wanted to update my catalog for a few months and today is the day. I have three new products that I am very excited to show you. LINK TO PDF CATALOG First, up are my 7-piece Grain-Matched Drawer Front set. Whether on their own or combined with my wood countertops, they make a beautiful statement and are a distinguished upgrade for your trailer. Available in board match walnut or mahogany – meaning one board from left to right so all the wood grain lines up and matches across each drawer. Next, is my Bath Doorstep. Stepping into the Oliver bathroom can be a challenge for some of us. A normal step is 7” high yet, Oliver's step is 9.25” high. Added to this awkward height is that you must step down into the shower pan once your foot clears the opening. If you need a little help with this, my Bath Doorstep is a great option. And far from last, our 3-piece Acoustic Design Panel set creates a decorative opportunity that also reduces the reverberation and echoes in your Oliver. This improves the sound of your television/stereo and plain conversations, with the added benefit of making the ceiling all your own. Attached to the ceiling with Velcro. Change your décor, change your fabric. One Payment Note: I will no longer be using PayPal for payments. Their rates have gotten too high for the value they are providing in my opinion. Going forward I will accept Checks and Zella. If you have an order in process before today, you are grandfathered in to use PayPal.
  8. Thank you all for the kind words. It is a simple understand between UPS and me, I want my craft to arrive in perfect condition and they want to destroy it completely. We get along well together. 🙂 Onward,
  9. Yes, its a set of seven including the nightstand.
  10. Yes it does. It's a 7 piece set with the nightstand. We had a showing of our trailer that morning and I did not have time to install the nightstand drawer front. It will be in the next catalog in about a week.
  11. I have wanted to do this for over a year. The planning, prototyping, and documenting were, stop & start as best. Yet today, the first set of Oliver Drawer Fronts comes out of production. These are Walnut & board matched – meaning one board from left to right so all the wood grain lines up and matches. These really make a beautiful statement and are a very distinguished upgrade for an Oliver Travel Trailer. They are finished with 5 coats of satin polyurethane for a lifetime of carefree use. There are seven drawers in the set - (4) small kitchen (2) large kitchen & (1) nightstand. I will be offering these in Walnut, Mahogany, Cerused Ash, and Dark Cerused Oak. They will be listed in my next catalog update in about a week. Next up Kitchen Cabinet Organizers. And yes, the Closet Organizer Part 1 is almost ready.
  12. A new product, the Tri-Fold Cockpit Table uses the Lagun mount on the driver side bed rail. More new products are coming in a few months. In the works – Upper Kitchen Cabinet Organizers, Wood Drawer Fronts, and a Rear Dinette for the twin bed configurations. If you would like me to craft an upgrade for your Oliver, just PM me. You can download my new PDF Catalog HERE:
  13. Oct. Jacksonville Mini Rally Space Available John & Linda Ruble have a reservation that they cannot use. If anyone wants it, please message me. They have Site 31 reserved for Oct. 14, checking out Oct. 19.
  14. Link to Catalog A lot of great ideas and craft have come together to get this catalog update ready. New products, new choices in wood, and new finishes to match Oliver’s décor options. I have used the most common questions about my craft to layout this catalog and help you decide what your style is and fits your needs. I now have a new email address for orders and questions – FoyablesInWood@gmail.com. Lastly – as we all have seen around us my prices have increased. Everything from wood, finishes, supplies, and freight has jumped in the last 4 months. If you have an order place with me, your grandfathered into the old pricing. All orders from October 1st are under this new pricing structure. Onward, Foy 517933762_FoyblesCatalogV3.1f.pdf
  15. While we would love to have more of you join us we cannot take another trailer or guest and manage the events in a way that accommodates everyone comfortably. We will do this again next October. Foy & Mirna Sperring

  17. We have returned from our vacation and are ready to roll out the details for our Second Oliver Mini-Rally at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in Jacksonville, FL. If you have not been to Hanna Park before it is right on the ocean with 1.5 miles of beautiful beachfront, this 450-acre park has everything you could want in a Florida oceanside park. There are 275 full hookup camping sites, all under mature coastal hammocks with giant majestic oaks trees. Hanna has over 20 miles of scenic trails that provide opportunities for hiking and biking. It is also just a short 10-minute drive from Neptune Beach, a quaint seaside town with lots of shops and restaurants to explore. If you are in the area or just need a reason to camp, we would love to have you join us. We are planning a Meet & Greet Fish Fry for Friday night, a Saturday Beach Lunch, and a Group Dinner in town Sunday night to close it all out. Everything you need to reserve a campsite is below. We are in Campsite 74 and have reserved Shelter 9 for our Meet & Greet Fish Fry. Once you make your reservation, please email me (48ocean@gmail.com) your site number. I will create a map of all Oliver Owners' locations in the camp as well as keep you all updated. This is not an Official Oliver Rally but one that Foy & Mirna Sperring host. Dates: October 15th – October 18th Location: Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park 500 Wonderwood Drive, Jacksonville - 32233 (904) 249-4700 or hannapark@coj.net Full RV Camping Hookup $33.81 per day, including tax Check-in 1:00 pm Check-out 12:00 pm Link to Hanna Park Campground Reservation: https://web1.myvscloud.com/wbwsc/fljacksonwt.wsc/search.html?module=RN&display=Graphical&primarycode=Hanna Campsites&SessionID=7476f4977f3074bcf2686fc02da499cd576968c8b2d57833b30c500d3dca5b958c61f372112609375e1cd87392a38b1395b5ba1e90c4f9a0521112ccecf5a8d2 Agenda: Friday, Oct 15th 1:00 pm Check-in 5:00 pm Meet & Greet Fish Fry – we will bring the fish and French fries and ask everyone to bring a side dish Saturday, Oct 16th 12:00 pm Lunch on the beach – we will be taking orders for sandwiches and ask everyone to bring drinks Free Evening Sunday, Oct 17th Free Day 7:00 pm Dutch Group Dinner – restaurant to be announced Monday, Oct 18th Free Morning & Farewells Check-out 12:00 pm Onward, Foy & Mirna Sperring
  18. Calling all Oliver owners near and far. We love Katherine Hanna Park. Camping under old-growth live oaks and access to a mile of wonderful beachfront is just a magical camping experience. We are planning the Second Mini Oliver Rally at Hanna Park this October 15th through October 18th. A Fish Fry meet & greet, lunch on the beach, and dinner in town to close it all out. If that sounds fun, we’d love to have you join us. Details to follow... Onward, Foy & Mirna Sperring
  19. I have not posted in a while. My Oliver family has had me very busy in the shop. We are getting ready to go camping and then head to Greece for a 10-day vacation. I will be suspending my crafting for the month of August and will start back up the first week in September. I plan to ship all orders through August in the next week. New orders will begin shipping in mid-September. Below is my current challenge, a 35” x 22” x 1.4” Lagun tabletop in black walnut. While this sounds simple, the challenge is in the weight. Lagun Table Systems have a maximum weight of 50 pounds. It includes the top and any items you are going to place on it. My target weight of 15 pounds for the finished top leaves 35 pounds for day-to-day use. The walnut blank I started with 35” x 22” x 1.4” thick weighed in at 29 pounds. I decided to back cut the bottom in three sections down to ¾” thick, with 1” wide edges and two cross supports. It came in at 15.2 lbs. Beautiful to look at, light as can be, and engineered to be strong for a lifetime of use.
  20. Thank you Mike and Jill for the kind word regarding my craft. This was a great project, black walnut is just so beautiful and I really love the way it turned out. Here are two pictures of the standard size dinette on top of your Mega-dinette for comparison.
  21. Could you tell me where to find the parts or the whole tee? Thanks Foy
  22. Nicely done Pat! Good use of space and design concept. A suggestion for you, consider embedding the support rod on the bottom side of the side out and connecting the front support end of the rod with a pin. This would allow up and down moment of the support rod. In addition, it would allow the back of the rod to dropout when the side out is pull out far enough to need support. To close, simply lift the support rod up and back into the embedded slot and slide the top back in place. I look forward to seeing your final design. Onward,
  23. As many of you know, I craft custom upgrades for Oliver Travel Trailers. As we head into the camping seasons I have refreshed my catalog to reflect my current products and a pricing increase. If you have an order on my production list or I have sent you a price quote, your price will not increase. You can find my catalog - Foybles Catalog V2.3f below.

  24. Just did the same to ours today and while I got the mechanism installed quicking, the fan acts like it has no power. When I first heard the Clicking I shut the "blower" breaker in the attic off which stopped the noise. Turning it back on has no effect on the Maxair. Also changed the batteries in the remote and tried it. Dead as a door knob. Love to heard how yours goes.
