  1. I bought a Caframo heater that I should have tried to take back, but it was too late. The grease/oil used in the fan bearings don’t like temps lower than about 40 degrees. The armature won’t turn when it’s cold. Kinda defeats the purpose of buying a heater that won’t work because it’s too cold.
  2. I’ve been out to the Black Hills area several times with an RV and a tent. The closer you get to Mount Rushmore, the more valuable campsites become. If you’re planning on staying in the Hill CIty or Keystone area and want an electric site, it’s going to be in a privately owned park with sites shoulder to shoulder. It’s going to be expensive and its going to be crowded. Just accept that given. If you don’t want electricity, or you’re willing to drive from further away, things open up. Angostura Reservoir is a BIG campground to the south. We practically had the whole place to ourselve
  3. I can confirm that the state park north of Ouray has daily site fees, vehicle fees, and coin operated showers. We stayed there for a week during the summer of 2019 while attending a Land Cruiser event based out of Ouray. This is a photo of the view out of our Oliver door.
  4. When I picked up our new trailer we had to go back to Oliver the next day for refrigerator service. There were hours of idle time just waiting around for service. While chatting with the employee who did the walk through the previous day, I was asked if I’d lowered the tire pressure yet. I told him I had. He nodded, smiled, and said “Good”. Don’t worry about lowering your tire pressure at pickup. I believe it’s expected that the new owner will do this as their very first trailer personalization.
  5. Welcome from another Minnesota Oliver. I’m in the Stillwater area. Looks like you were on the North Shore. I’m going to guess Tettegouche State Park since it looks like Palisade Head in the background. Nice job scoring a North Shore campsite at the peak of leaf watching! Hope to see you around. Off the top of my head we’ve had our Oliver to Tettegouche, Temperance River, Interstate, Flandrau, Blue Mound, and Bear Head Lake State Parks since buying in 2018. The avatar picture of my wife and I was taken standing on the lake shore at Temperance River. During the summers of 2005-200
  6. Easily. Even in 90 degree temps I think you could hang meat inside. The issue is the noise from the AC. Kicking in an out during the night isn’t very restful. We shut it off whenever possible. The ability to control humidity is what we enjoy the most.
  7. Here are a couple of field-trails-wanabees that love to travel in our Elite II. They’re English Setters for the non-bird dog audience. We hunt ruffed grouse together.
  8. I use mine all the time. With two dogs, something always needs cleaning or rinsing off outside. Sometimes when the weather is nice and we’re boondocking in a private spot, I’ll take a shower or wash up outside so I don’t have to prep or wipe down the bathroom or dry the shower curtain. I found a suction cup shower head holder on-line. I stick the holder on the outside of the camper so I can have two free hands. Works great. The one improvement I’d like is to add a longer hose. The stock hose is too short. Also wish I could close the basement door once the outside shower is set up. I’
  9. I agree with this. All the other bits and pieces are just nice to have. Everything you might have forgot or didn’t know you wanted can be purchased at Tractor Supply or Walmart just a minute or two drive from your pickup. All you absolutely need is payment and proof of insurance if you paid for the trailer via a secured loan. If you’re paying with cash, I don’t know if proof of insurance is required by law in TN or not.
  10. Yes, A B50 MX would be a good find. I haven’t run across any for sale at a reasonable price, so I scratched the itch with a ‘69 Triumph 250 single. It was sold by Triumph dealers, but is just a rebadged BSA. I bought it more than 25 years ago and it’s been sitting in the back of the garage. This spring when I was stuck home in isolation I brought it to the front and got it road worthy. My intention was to sell it off and roll the money into upgrades for everything else, but it’s been so fun to ride around town I might keep it. It turns head where ever it goes, it’s easy to push around, a
  11. Never owned an Eldorado, but did own a brand new Moto Guzzi V65 for awhile in the 90’s. Bought it from a Honda dealer when they absorbed another Honda dealership that also carried Moto Guzzi. The new Honda dealer just wanted it gone. I heard they had a Guzzi on the floor and went in hoping for a LeMans or an SP. Salesman begged me give them an offer. I didn’t really want a 650, so I offered about 30% of what I thought it was worth, and they took it! Ran that bike for several years before selling it on consignment at the local Moto Guzzi dealer. Made ALL my money back on that one in
  12. My ‘75 Norton Commando 850 Roadster that I’ve owned since 1990 is pictured below. It often pains me to drive the Land Cruiser and tow the Oliver over some of the many great motorcycle riding roads we’ve been on, especially out West. Often makes me want to trade off the Land Cruiser for a pickup so I can bring along one of the bikes. Haven’t been down the Dragon yet, but have put lots of miles on many other nice roads. Current stable. ‘75 Norton Commando, ‘75 Triumph T160 Trident, ‘74 Triumph T150 Trident, ‘69 BSA Rocket III, ‘77 Triumph Bonneville, ‘69 Triumph Trail Trophy 250.
  13. Open the back flow prevention valve, the handle on the wall next to the toilet. Hth. Ken
  14. Dug around tonight and found a set of 2018 printed brochures. Not in there. Must have been on line in 2017 or earlier where I saw the alternate Elite I layout. Ken
  15. I’d need to dig deep, but I remember this too and might even have a brochure. We didn’t start looking at Olivers until 2017. I suspect 2017 was the last year, or maybe 2018, of getting that floor plan on an Elite I. It looked like a nice setup for a single person. I’ve never seen it in person.
