  1. http://www.wowhaus.co.uk/2018/06/26/midcentury-mobile-home-1961-holiday-house-geographic-ebay/
  2. https://www.curbed.com/2018/4/12/17228986/airstream-nest-trailer-camper-new I still prefer the Ollie.
  3. There appears to be many different kinds of vehicles out there towing Ollies. I'm curious about what you're using and what did you upgrade from and why?
  4. Yes to that. That's why, even though I see many photos of Olivers being towed by Jeeps, etc. I'm being careful making sure I know what I'm getting into. My wife and I are traveling to KS to attend my youngest daughter's commencement in mid-May and we are planning on attending the Oliver Travel Trailer Rally in TN along the way. Oliver is supposed to have demo units and presentations as well as us meeting people showing off their Olivers.
  5. I find it interesting that the background image on the Oliver website has the Elite II coupled to a Toyota Highlander and other photos show an FJ Cruiser both of which, I believe, are only rated to 5000lbs.
  6. (Hmmm, had a whole comment disappear. I'll try again.) My wife and I are currently retired, in our early 60s and living in FL (in a condo, not loving it) for the past 6 years. I'm a newbie at all this and have never owned or operated a TT or RV (but am a quick learner). We hope to eventually move into a single family home sometime in the future but because I think the R/E market is overheated (and over-valued) in many of the potential locations we can agree on, we plan to get a TT and do some scouting (for a few years) by "moving about the country" to get a feel for new places. But I don't see us as full-timers, just maybe 2-3 months out of the year. We also have access to RV parks on military bases. My criteria for a TT is at least two twin beds (I'd prefer a third because we have two adult children, either one of which can potentially join us for a couple of weeks a year in our travels), fridge, shower/toilet, and cooking. I don't want a "second home" behemoth. I'm not too interested in a full-sized truck for reasons already stated. After reading some horror stories about quality issues in the RV industry (and other issues) I'm only interested in making sure whatever I pick has the highest standards of quality. As of now, I'm looking at the Elite II but might step it down to the Elite if it works better with my other criteria.
  7. We're currently retired, in our early 60s and living in FL. The plan is to visit a bunch of different places in the US with the intention of relocating our retirement home (in a condo now, not loving it). I'm a newbie at all this (have never owned a TT or RV in my life). Unfortunately, we think the current real estate condition in most of the places we're interested in are over-valued and over-heated (too many Flippers) and I think the values are unsustainable and due to crash again. So the plan is to get a TT and do a couple of years of "moving about the country" and getting a feel for each location. I'm interested in the Oliver Legacy Elite II because I have adult children, one of which can join us for weeks at a time to travel with. If it was just me and my wife, we could probably get by with the smaller Legacy Elite and the choice of a Tacoma would be easier (I think). After reading this: RV Industry Death Spiral I want to be very, very careful in the TT I chose.
  8. We don't plan on using the TT more than 2-3 months out of the year and I don't want a full-size truck for the rest of the year. PLUS my wife, who is otherwise fine with my Tacoma, would refuse to go along with a bigger truck. :-)
  9. Please correct me if I have this wrong, last time I checked it’s possible to currently buy 3.5L TRD Tacoma with up to 6800 pound tow capacity. With V6 Tow Package it's 6400 lbs.
  10. I'm enamored with Toyotas and am currently researching getting an Oliver TT. My current 2004 Tacoma is completely unsuited for towing but I'm willing to upgrade to a new Taco. And, no, I don't want a Tundra. :-)
  11. My wife and I don't currently own a travel trailer but are in the market. Is the rally someplace we can attend to get information and walk-throughs? Will Oliver have models to show off?
