  1. When you are disconnected from power and the generator is running, can you get power from both the batteries and the generator at the same time? And, if so, how much power? Up to 30 amps?
  2. Oliver put an aluminum box on for me. I got it from etrailer. RC Manufacturing Toolbox 350975. They mounted it securely. Water tight.
  3. We are picking up our trailer in April. I'm looking at the Proven Industries 2516-B coupler lock. We are getting a hitch with a 2-5/16 ball. What does it mean that "Oliver hooks are so big only one will fit." ? Anyone have a picture of their setup with a 2516-B coupler lock?
  4. Does the hypervent tear your sheets at the edges?
  5. Would it help to drill some holes thru the platform / support that the mattress lies on?
  6. How about an RC Manufacturing Trailer Toolbox Model 350975 ?
  7. Did you end up with 3/8 or 1/2" chain? How long is the chain? Thanks in advance.
  8. I have a Ford F250 Limited. From the ground to the top of the receiver is 24". Per Oliver, from the ground to the top of the coupler is 22.5". I think that all I need is 1.5" of drop. I'm planning on getting a Weigh Safe with a 4" drop. Can anyone confirm that this is what is needed?
  9. Thanks. What’s the best size, 9x12, 8x16, or 8x 20?
  10. Where is the best place / way to store your outdoor carpet? Whats the right size carpet to get?
  11. Russell n Cindy, we'd like to meet up. We'll keep in touch. Bruce n Vas
  12. Those are logical reasons to choose the Elite I. My wife and I went thru the same logic and decided on the II. Tough choice. We have a puppy who is 65 pounds and growing. This will be our first time RV'ng, so everything is new to us. We are enjoying the process. We got a 250 diesel which I'm driving. It's comfortable and is averaging 19.2 mpg over the 8000 miles we've had it. I got the diesel because I like the power, the diesel braking, and I had a good experience with a 2002 VW Jetta Diesel. I averaged 52 - 63 mpg with it and very low maintenance. The only maintenance was change the oil and filters and the timing belt. Tires now and then. I had 30% left on the brake pads and never changed the clutch out. After 275,000 miles I traded it in for the truck. After I got the truck, we thought about getting some land clearing equipment. Then, I wished we had got the 350. I learned a lot about towing capacity then. Even though vehicles can tow something, you need to make sure you are legal in the event you are in an accident.
  13. We looked at it a little, but not too much. We decided to get the Elite II because it was a little bigger and twin axles. I liked the Elite I because it was smaller and it would be able to go a few places that the Elite II can't. For example, there are some spots in Big Bend that a 23.5' trailer isn't supposed to fit. What are the pros and cons that you've considered?
  14. We are thinking of the rally, but we don't know what our plans are yet.
  15. The last 2+ years we have researched travel trailers. We placed a deposit and will be picking up our Elite II twin bed trailer April 2, 2019. We are first time RV'ers, so everything is new to us. This forum, Facebook, and Oliver have been great sources of information. Thank you everyone for sharing. We look forward to meeting y'all face to face and getting to know you from the forum. Our kids are grown and out of the nest. We have an 11 month old German Shepherd puppy. 65 pounds are so. Puppy, but big. We expect to travel with her. We know that will limit us, but she's part of the family. We plan on short trips at first and then longer trips to see the USA and Canada. Lots to see. We are looking forward to new experiences. We expect to learn a lot about the Oliver trailer, RV'ing, and enjoying our adventures and misadventures. We've already got our TV, a 2018 Ford 250 Diesel. Thanks for the checklists: supply, maintenance, and trip records. Great help. We are picking our interior options. We have two favorites and if anyone has these options, can you post pictures? Thanks in advance for any feedback. Options we are considering: 1. Fiber-Granite: paradise beach, flooring: sea grass, and Naugahyde seat: brown or 2. Fiber-Granite: tahoe, flooring: dark grey, and Naugahyde: Grey Bruce & Vas
  16. I like your choices. What did you pick for flooring, counter, and Upholstrey?
